HURD, Roy Lloyd
Roy died on Saturday, June 3, 2006. He was predeceased by his wife Margaret with whom he had a long and loving marriage. He was subsequently blessed by a very happy marriage to Helen who mourns his passing. Wanda PEARSE (Chas) and Barbara SPEAR said goodbye to their big brother with great sadness as did Ken JOHNSON of Parry Sound. Susan (Alan), Dennis (Sue), Donald (Brenda), Larry (Anne) and Gordon (Karen) and their families look back on a wonderful family life of so many years and will miss their Dad greatly. Sixteen grandchildren and thirteen great-grandchildren remember Gramps with much love. Queen's University transformed a mining career in Northern Ontario into a series of international business successes, and Roy remained a Queen's man all his life. We say farewell to a man of great intelligence, dignity, humour and kindness and above all, to a man who lived for and loved his family. In lieu of flowers, a donation to a charity of your choice would be very much appreciated. Family and Friends are invited to a memorial reception to honour Roy, Monday, June 12 at Valley Lounge, 3800 Yonge Street (west side of Yonge, south of York Mills subway).

The dead man was identified as Hugh WILLIAMS. Police did not release his age or where he lived.
The crash occurred about 11 p.m. in the east lanes of the 401 between Colonel Talbot and Wellington roads in the east lanes where traffic was merging into a single lane because of construction.

Four homicides, one long night
Police chase leads in garage slaying of man, woman
Other victims are man who was shot, Brampton mother
By Thulasi SRIKANTHAN, Meghan HURLEY and Betsy POWELL, Staff Reporters with files from Jim WILKES
Virgilo CUEVAS often used the garage of his home for refuge, and to smoke -- and that's where he and a female "acquaintance" were shot dead, leaving Toronto police searching for a motive and the killers.
"We're still working on a couple of theories, but there's nothing concrete that I can say yet," homicide Det. Wayne FOWLER said yesterday.
CUEVAS, 31, and a 56-year-old woman were found lying on the concrete floor of the attached garage of a house near Steeles Ave. E. and Markham Rd. on Wednesday night. Police were waiting to notify next of kin yesterday before releasing the woman's identity.
Meanwhile, police on the other side of Toronto were investigating the Wednesday evening slaying of a man in his 40s, and Peel Region police were probing the death of a 31-year-old mother of two whose body was found early yesterday.
A man identified by Friends as Gerald McDONALD may have been killed over the cash he was carrying when he was shot in an apartment building on Weston Rd. near Eglinton Ave. W., a friend speculated.
"He had $1,700 in his pocket. Maybe someone knew that he cashed his cheque and that he had this money," said Nancy IANNRELLA, owner of Nancy's Bar and Grill, next to the apartment.
McDONALD had been released from jail just two hours before he was killed, she said, and had dropped into the bar before going to cash the cheque.
Police were called to the building at about 7: 23 p.m. Wednesday after someone reported hearing gunshots.
The victim died in hospital yesterday.
About 90 minutes later, in Scarborough, CUEVAS' wife, Maria, found her husband and his friend after she drove up to the house around 8: 45 p.m. Wednesday.
The garage door was partly open, and when she drove in she could see one of the bodies, FOWLER said.
She then went inside, where the couples' three young children were with their grandparents.
FOWLER said no one in the house is a suspect.
CUEVAS was home all day and had gone on his own into the garage, where he was joined by the woman.
"The purpose of her visit, I don't know," FOWLER said. She doesn't live nearby and was driven to the address. The wife knows "her husband's friend" by sight.
There was no romantic relationship, he added.
witnesses: described two men, of Asian or Filipino descent -- as were the victims -- wearing light-coloured jackets or jerseys running away from the scene.
No firearms were located.
The wife's father, who asked not to be identified, said he saw his distraught daughter early yesterday morning.
The only thing she would say was that her husband was gone. "That's all," her father said. "She was crying really hard."
The children do not really know what is going on, he said. Two of them are staying with him. "They are sad, they cannot sleep."
Neighbours say they often saw the children running around the red-brick home, cycling and spending time with their father in the backyard, where they often barbecued.
Yesterday, a shiny blue bicycle with training wheels sat on the freshly cut lawn.
"Nothing like this ever happened on this street before," said Darrell RUBIO, who has lived there for three years. He said the family held a lot of parties, and there were always people coming in and out.
Rayne DOOKIE was in her home relaxing when she thought she heard a loud noise.
"I heard a shot. I thought it was a car backfiring." She said she quickly dismissed it because she couldn't imagine anything like a murder happening in their quiet neighbourhood.
Councillor Raymond CHO was going door-to-door in his ward to reassure citizens.
"I was totally frustrated, shocked and angry, because this is a good community," he said.
Meanwhile, Peel Region saw its fourth homicide this year with the death of Malena MORALES, whose body was found in a 12th-floor Brampton apartment early yesterday.
Police found MORALES's body showing "obvious signs of trauma" when they responded to a call at about 2 a.m., said Const. Jennifer BRYER.
Homicide detectives sealed off the building, on Steeles Ave. W. near Hurontario Street, and officers canvassed other residents throughout the day.
Residents said the woman lived with a man and two children, but it was not known whether she was married.
Two boys, a 10-year-old and his younger brother, were being cared for by relatives as police searched for a male suspect.
"This used to be a good building," said a woman who has lived there 16 years.
"But it's been going downhill for the last year or so. There have been a lot of drugs and dealers and the police have been here many times."
An autopsy is planned today at the Centre of Forensic Sciences in Toronto.
The gunning-down of the man Friends called McDONALD, whom police have not officially identified, makes him the fifth homicide victim killed somewhere along Weston Rd. in just a few months.
On July 2, a 25-year-old man was gunned down outside a bar on Weston south of Rogers Rd.
Three men tried to steal the money being collected at the club's front door, police said. A second victim caught in the crossfire was taken to hospital with non-life-threatening injuries.
On June 13, police found Clive McNABB, 39, stabbed to death in his Weston Rd. and Eglinton Ave. W. apartment, just steps from the scene of Wednesday's shooting.
A week before McNABB's death, 22-year-old Gabriel JARAMILLO was shot dead in the area around Weston Rd. and Lawrence Ave. E. Peyton BADIRU, 26, has been charged with second-degree murder in that case.
And at the end of March, Romaine LAWRENCE, 18, was killed when bullets tore through the window of a pizza parlour at Weston Rd. and Eglinton Ave. W.
"We've been directing our resources along that stretch of Weston Rd.," Staff Sgt. Gary MULHOLLAND, of 12 Division, said in response to a question about the cluster of homicides.
"Over the past few years we've had initiatives to lower violence and we will continue to do so."
MULHOLLAND said that while it is "unsettling for the neighbourhood," the violence mostly seems related to activities of criminals in the area. "It's not just the average citizen walking down the street."
That's little comfort to McDONALD's bar-owner friend, since he was shot steps away from where she works.
Someone came running into the bar screaming to call the police after the shooting, IANNRELLA said.
She was working when it happened and saw the victim in the hallway when she went upstairs.
"I can't sleep because I'm in such shock because it happened in my neighbourhood," IANNRELLA said.
"I know when I go home in the night I get scared."

A most distinguished fighting ace
'Moose' received honours for service
World War II pilot undaunted in face of enemy
By Meghan HURLEY, Staff Reporter, Page B7
"Moose" FUMERTON did most of his fighting in the dark in a plane that was notoriously difficult to fly.
But he survived the Battle of Britain, two crash landings and a bullet wound to emerge from World War 2 as Canada's top-scoring night-fighter ace, credited with destroying 14 enemy aircraft and damaging a 15th.
He was awarded two Distinguished Flying Crosses and an Air Force Cross. The citation for his second Distinguished Flying Cross called him "a most tenacious and skilful pilot, whose determination to destroy the enemy is outstanding."
Wing Cmdr. Robert Carl FUMERTON died July 10. He was 93.
His eldest daughter, Maureen SHIPTON, said the words "courage and devotion" sum up her father's career in the Royal Canadian Air Force.
"When an enemy gunner returned fire, he was wounded with a bullet in his leg, but he still persevered and got the aircraft all the way back to base," SHIPTON said. "He was absolutely determined, and that's what made him such a successful fighter pilot."
He not only brought his only plane back safely on one engine he attacked the enemy aircraft a second time and brought it down in flames.
FUMERTON gave the Royal Canadian Air Force its first night victory on September 1, 1941, as he and Sgt. Pat BING, who became his long-time navigator, were on a practice flight near the coast of northeast England in their twin-engined Bristol Beaufighter. They were diverted to intercept a German Junkers 88 bomber flying in from the North Sea.
From less than 50 metres away, FUMERTON set the bomber's starboard engine on fire. After a second attack, the plane crashed. FUMERTON and BING found the wreckage the next day and hacked off one of its Iron Cross markings. They hung it in the crew room of the newly formed 406 (Royal Canadian Air Force) Squadron.
FUMERTON was born on March 20, 1913, in Fort Coulonge, Quebec With little formal education -- but, his family says, a lifelong love of learning -- he began work as a lumberjack and then a gold prospector and miner. He learned to fly and in 1938 qualified for a bush-pilot's licence.
When the war began, he volunteered for the Royal Canadian Air Force, and in August 1940 was with the first Canadian squadron, 112, to arrive in England.
With the Battle of Britain raging, as Germany attempted to destroy the country's air defences as a prelude to invasion, Fighter Command was short of pilots. FUMERTON transferred to 32 Squadron, flying the Hawker Hurricane. He was a big man, a hockey player more than 6 feet tall, and he found the cockpit a tight squeeze. His fellow pilots nicknamed him "Moose."
After the Battle of Britain in October 1940, FUMERTON was posted briefly to another squadron before joining 406 to train as a night fighter flying the Bristol Beaufighter. The plane, with its two powerful engines, had a reputation for being unforgiving with any but the most competent pilots.
Only weeks after his first victory, FUMERTON and Bing were transferred to 89 Squadron in Egypt. He was wounded on March 2, 1942, after intercepting a Heinkel bomber near Alexandria. As FUMERTON attacked, an enemy gunner fired back, hitting him in the leg, disabling the Beaufighter's starboard engine and destroying the gunsight. FUMERTON, flying on his port engine, returned to the fray and brought the Heinkel down.
When he tried to land his crippled fighter, he discovered the undercarriage was smashed, so he landed the plane on its belly. After a short stay in hospital, he was back in the air and in a 15-minute span shot down two Heinkels. He left Egypt with his first Distinguished Flying Cross.
As Germany and Italy mounted a merciless onslaught on Malta, a tiny but vital Allied stronghold in the Mediterranean, FUMERTON and Bing arrived there in June 1942. FUMERTON quickly became the top-scoring night-fighter pilot on the island with nine "kills" in only two months.
His first came on June 24, an Italian bomber. He landed, refuelled and rearmed his Beaufighter, took off again and as dawn was beginning to break, downed another bomber. Two Junkers 88s fell to his guns four nights later, a fifth on July 1 and a sixth the following night. His seventh, another Junkers 88, was destroyed July 28.
With German bombers attacking en masse on August 10, FUMERTON and BING took off to intercept them, only to have both engines fail as they were about to swoop in on an enemy plane. FUMERTON managed to "ditch" the Beaufighter in the sea -- a miracle in itself, given the plane's feared reputation as a quick sinker and both men scrambled out and inflated their dinghies. They were picked up the next morning by Maltese fisherman.
SHIPTON said she remembered her father telling her they offered the fliers a drink to celebrate their rescue. "Before Dad drank the toast, he sniffed it and it was iodine!" she said, laughing. "I guess the fishermen were so excited it was their first rescue that they poured from the wrong bottle. Dad almost got rescued to be killed."
With his second D.F.C., FUMERTON returned to Canada at the end of 1942. He was back in England by July 1943, to take command of 406 Squadron, now flying twin-engined Mosquitoes. He helped provide air cover for the D-Day landings in Normandy on June 6, 1944. His final air victory had come on May 15, when he destroyed a Junkers over the English Channel.
In Canada, FUMERTON took command of a Mosquito training squadron in August 1944, and received the Air Force Cross for "exemplary efficiency."
It was while he was stationed in southern England that he met his future wife, Madeleine REAY, a Royal Air Force flight controller, "over the airwaves," said their eldest son, Richard. "They were fighting over directions. He liked the sound of her voice, so he looked her up after."
When the war ended, FUMERTON went back to gold mining in Canada's north, leaving his wife with relatives in Ontario.
"A few days after he left, she had taken a boat to get herself out there," SHIPTON said. "They made them a tent and they called it the honeymoon tent. He left a couple of other times for work, but she kept showing up until he finally gave up and went into real estate."
But FUMERTON's flying career wasn't quite over. In 1948, he spent time in China teaching Gen. Chiang Kai-shek's pilots to fly Mosquitoes and organizing three squadrons for the general's Nationalist air force.
The family lived for many years in Toronto. FUMERTON, predeceased by his wife, nursed her through Alzheimer's.
"She had Alzheimer's and he was there caring for her," SHIPTON said. "He looked after her by himself even in his 90s."
FUMERTON leaves five children, 10 grandchildren and three great-grandchildren.
