Frank MURRAY, Radio Executive (1918-2006)
Small-town Ontario broadcaster made his mark on the national scene
By Danny GALLAGHER, Special to The Globe and Mail, Page S11
Toronto -- From the air to the radio station, sound was the big noise in Frank MURRAY's life. He was a long-time friend of former Canadian prime minister Pierre Trudeau, covered Winston Churchill's funeral as a radio reporter and helped shape broadcasting in the Ontario venues of Belleville, Trenton and Bancroft.
The son of a professor of music at Trinity College in Dublin, Ireland, he grew up to join an insurance company as a sales executive but headed for Northern Ireland soon after the Second World War began to enlist in the Royal Air Force.
He spent six years as a flight lieutenant and Coastal Command air gunner, one of very few commissioned officers to serve in that role. In 1943-44, he was engaged in a special mission that altered his life dramatically: He was sent to an air force base in Picton, Ontario, to help prepare air crews for warfare as part of the vast British Commonwealth Air Training Plan. It was a large, busy base and on Saturday nights, busloads of young, local women arrived at the officers' mess to attend dances and other social functions. One night Mr. MURRAY met Isobel STEWARD/STEWART/STUART of Belleville, Ontario, and one thing led to another. They were married March 11, 1944, at the base and soon afterward he returned to the war in Europe. Isobel followed later on a ship full of war brides.
"As it was war time, they had no idea of when they would dock in England but Dad flew Coastal Command and kept an eye on the ship," daughter Pam MURRAY said. "He was the first person to greet the boatload of wives and kids and somehow managed to get some flowers. Mom and Dad left on a train for Northern Ireland the next day. Mom was there for the better part of a year when she found out she was pregnant with me and came back to Belleville."
When the war ended, Mr. MURRAY joined his wife in Belleville and worked at odd jobs before landing a sales position at CJBQ Radio. By 1959, he had been made general manager. Over the years, he took CJBQ from a 500-watt medium enterprise to a four-station network that included CKGL-FM in Belleville, CJTN in Trenton and CJNH in Bancroft.
Veteran broadcaster Dave SOVEREIGN still remembers the day Mr. MURRAY hired him. "I was a radio and television arts student at Ryerson in Toronto and one day in 1960, Frank came from Belleville because he wanted a summer student.
"There were seven people who auditioned for him and he chose me. Then the following year, I was hired full-time as a newsman and eventually became the news director. I worked 28 years for Quinte Broadcasting."
While he worked mostly in management, Mr. MURRAY would often get behind the microphone or hit the road as a reporter. When former British prime minister Winston Churchill died in 1965, Mr. MURRAY attended the funeral and sent live reports back to the station.
"That was pretty unique and big news in Belleville to have someone like Frank travelling all the way to London to cover the funeral," Mr. SOVEREIGN said. In much the same way, Mr. MURRAY also reported the royal wedding of Princes Charles and Lady Diana
Closer to home, he twice put crews together and took them to Montreal to cover Expo 67 and the 1976 Olympics, and once caused a stir by accompanying external affairs minister Mitchell Sharp on an around-the-world visit. He pulled off a media coup by doing a live show with Mr. Sharp from the back of the plane. "We got scooped by a guy from a small station in Belleville," said CTV reporter Mike Duffy.
Mr. MURRAY also stole a march or two as a broadcast executive. In the early years of cable television, he acquired an operating licence for Quinte Cable Systems, which today claims 80 per cent penetration of its market. At the time, it was second such licence issued in Canada.
"Frank got that licence for only $25," recalls Don LAWRIE, formerly a senior executive with Thomson Newspapers, which went into a partnership on the project. "At first, Ken Thomson, the owner, didn't want to get involved because he thought the government would think we would have a monopoly. Finally, I suggested to Ken that we approach Frank and the Morton family about being a local partner."
Frank MURRAY also had a keen interest in local education. He was instrumental in setting up a radio-broadcasting program at Belleville's Loyalist College and founded and directed radio-club programs in Belleville and Trenton high schools.
For all that, his influence extended well beyond the region. He sat on the board of directors of the Canadian Association of Broadcasters and was president of the Central Canada Broadcasters Association, both considered unusual achievements for a small-market radio executive. "Usually it was the big guys, CHUM, etc., who sat on those boards," Pam MURRAY said.
On the political front, Mr. MURRAY engaged in a lifelong relationship with Mr. Trudeau and the Liberal party. At a fundraiser in Belleville in the 1970s, Mr. Trudeau asked him to run as a candidate in a federal riding. He declined the invitation but the two men remained Friends. When Mr. Trudeau died, Mr. MURRAY attended his funeral.
Frank MURRAY was born on February 13, 1918 in Dublin, Ireland. He died January 24, 2006, in Belleville, Ontario of natural causes. He was 87. He is survived by his daughter Pam and sons Kevin and Stewart. He was predeceased by his wife Isobel.

Mystery shrouds teen's death
Family says he was in custody before being found in river, but chief says there is no record
By Isabel TEOTONIO and Tracy HUFFMAN, Staff Reporters
The last time Kamara ASHTON's family saw him, he was leaving home to go to an all-ages club with Friends. That was almost a month ago.
Over the next few weeks, the family made a flurry of phone calls to his lawyer, Friends, police and even Toronto-area jails looking for the 18-year-old. They knew something was wrong, especially when he missed a court date on a charge that he had vowed to beat.
On November 23, they learned his body had been found three days earlier in the Humber River.
There are many unanswered questions concerning ASHTON's whereabouts between November 3 and November 20 and the cause of his death questions his family desperately wants answered.
"We're not pointing fingers at no one, we just want answers," mother Lorna ASHTON told the Toronto Star yesterday, after a news conference.
Nikishua ASHTON told reporters she contacted police days after her brother's disappearance and was told he had been arrested and was in police custody. But yesterday, police Chief Bill Blair, who personally reviewed the file, said there was no information that ASHTON was ever in custody between the date of his disappearance and discovery of his body.
Nor do they have a record of the family contacting police in the early days of his disappearance.
The sister said she later called ASHTON's lawyer and was told her brother had not contacted him and had missed a November 7 court appearance on a robbery charge.
The family then tried to file a missing person report, said the sister, adding they were initially dissuaded by police who suggested ASHTON could be in hiding after missing court.
But the next day, November 16, police did meet with the family and took down their information, she said.
A week later, they were notified ASHTON had been found in the river, behind the highrise where he lived on Weston Rd., just south of Highway 401.
Ontario's deputy coroner Doctor Jim Cairns said a cause of death has yet to be determined, but there were no obvious signs of trauma to the body. Further tests will determine if ASHTON drowned and toxicology tests, which are standard procedure, will show if there were drugs or alcohol in his system.
According to Blair, the first inquiry made by the family was after they were contacted on November 16 by officers looking for ASHTON because there had been a warrant issued after he had missed his court date. After that phone call, the family went to police to report ASHTON as missing.
At the news conference, held at the Jamaican-Canadian Association, ASHTON's two sisters and a cousin were flanked by representatives of the Black Action Defence Committee, including executive director Dudley LAWS and lawyer Selwyn PIETERS, and a lawyer with the African Canadian Legal Clinic.
"We would like a full investigation into the death of this young man," said LAWS, adding he had not contacted police for information but had gone directly to the Special Investigations Unit. "It's very obvious that something went wrong."
His comments were echoed by PIETERS, who also called for a coroner's inquest into ASHTON's death.
Special Investigations Unit spokeswoman Rose Bliss said yesterday that based on information it has at this point from the family and police, there is no reason to believe ASHTON was in police custody at the time of his death.

For this a journey that we all must take And each must go alone It's all apart of the master plan A step on the road to home. When you are lonely and sick at heart Go to the Friends we know And bury your sorrow's in doing Good deeds Miss Me - but let me go.

In memory of a loving mother, grandmother, great grandmother and best friend, who passed away May 2, 1974.
The clock of life is wound but once,
And no man has the power, to tell just when the hands will stop.
At late or early hour, now is the only time you own.
Live, love, toil with a will.
Place no faith in tomorrow for the clock then may then be still.
Always loved and remembered by Fred and Lois GARLAND and family, Fred and Cindy LAWSON and family, and Dorothy LAWSON.

Suddenly and peacefully at Toronto Western Hospital on Sunday, March 12, 2006, following a short illness.

Anne was subsequently asked to join the staff of London Teachers College in London, Ontario. In the early 1960's, Anne was transferred to Toronto where she served as a provincial inspector of schools. In this capacity she travelled the Province of Ontario for many years. Anne and her Friends travelled the world and enjoyed every minute of it. In later years she enjoyed discussing the details of their travels with others. Anne maintained her intellectual abilities and considerable curiosity until her final days. She always enjoyed a challenging game of bridge with Friends. In 1967 Anne was awarded the Centennial Medal by the Government of Canada. At Anne's request, she has been cremated and a family memorial service will be held at a later date. Morley Bedford Funeral Services, 159 Eglinton Avenue West, Toronto (416-489-8733), is in charge of arrangements. In lieu of flowers, Anne would suggest a donation to a worthy charity of your choice.

JOHNSTON, Doctor Marion Jane (née LAWSON)
After a valiant battle, Marion has moved on to a better life. She was the dearly loved mother of Anne WALLACE and mother-in-law to Jack, who Marion thought, could do anything! Doting grandmother of Paul (Sheila) WALLACE, Liz Wallace PATTERSON (John,) John (Anne-Marie) WALLACE and David WALLACE. Thrilled great-grandmother to Kayla, Nathan and Alyana WALLACE, Sarah and Claire WALLACE and Mason (born on Marion's Birthday) and Quinn PATTERSON. Aunt to Peter BECK and Delwin McLENNAN, who were a great source of pride and joy to Marion. Marion is predeceased by her loving husband William Wallace JOHNSTON, her daughter Marguerite, her parents, three sisters, a baby brother and nephews Gordon McLENNAN and Paul BECK. Marion and her sisters all attended Oakwood Collegiate Institute and proceeded to the University of Toronto, at a time when only a few women obtained higher education. There, Marion studied Biochemistry and obtained her Ph.D. It was in the Biochemistry Department that she met another fellow Ph.D., William Wallace JOHNSTON, whom later she married. As her husband went to Halifax, his young bride followed and there they were instrumental in the development of Cod Liver Oil. They moved to Montreal and then to Toronto, where their careers changed to teaching. Marion did supply teaching and was sought after by many school boards in the west end of Toronto, until she stopped to care for her ailing husband.

JOHNSTON, Doctor Marion Jane (née LAWSON)
After a valiant battle, Marion has moved on to a better life. She was the dearly loved mother of Anne WALLACE and mother-in-law to Jack, who Marion thought, could do anything! Doting grandmother of Paul (Sheila) WALLACE, Liz Wallace PATTERSON (John,) John (Anne-Marie) WALLACE and David WALLACE. Thrilled great-grandmother to Kayla, Nathan and Alyana WALLACE, Sarah and Claire WALLACE and Mason (born on Marion's Birthday) and Quinn PATTERSON. Aunt to Peter BECK and Delwin McLENNAN, who were a great source of pride and joy to Marion. Marion is predeceased by her loving husband William Wallace JOHNSTON, her daughter Marguerite, her parents, three sisters, a baby brother and nephews Gordon McLENNAN and Paul BECK. Marion and her sisters all attended Oakwood Collegiate Institute and proceeded to the University of Toronto, at a time when only a few women obtained higher education. There, Marion studied Biochemistry and obtained her Ph.D. It was in the Biochemistry Department that she met another fellow Ph.D., William Wallace JOHNSTON, whom later she married. As her husband went to Halifax, his young bride followed and there they were instrumental in the development of Cod Liver Oil. They moved to Montreal and then to Toronto, where their careers changed to teaching. Marion did supply teaching and was sought after by many school boards in the west end of Toronto, until she stopped to care for her ailing husband. Marion natured and nurtured all who came in contact with her. She encouraged all to be the best they could. Thank you. The family will receive Friends at the Humphrey Funeral Home - A.W.

LAWSON, Walter Reynolds (1918-2006)
Passed away peacefully at Ste-Anne's Veterans Hospital in Saint Anne-de Bellevue, Québec on December 10, 2006 in his 89th year. Cherished husband of Harriet Senior LAWSON who died in May of this year. Much loved father of Cecily (Graham), Geoffrey (Julie), Tim (Julie), and Heather (John). Proud grandfather of Drummond, Krista, Maia, Zoë, Alex, Stephanie, Claire and Fraser. Predeceased by his sister Mary Evelyn and brothers Charles and Gerry. Walter was born in Amherst, Nova Scotia on February 11, 1918 to Gerald LAWSON and Rose Smith LAWSON. He graduated from Dalhousie University with a B.Sc. in chemical engineering in 1940 and immediately enlisted with the Canadian Army and was sent overseas. He served in England, participated in the 1944 D-Day invasion of France, fought in North Western Europe and subsequently served in the Philippines and Okinawa. He was discharged from the Army with the rank of major. In 1945 when the war ended, he returned to Canada and was hired as Plant Engineer at the Toronto Works of Dominion Tar and Chemical Ltd, beginning a long and successful career that culminated in his becoming President of Domtar Packaging in 1977 and Executive Vice-President, Domtar Inc in 1979. In 1946, he married Harriet Jane SENIOR in Toronto and together they raised four children, moving first to Sarnia, Ontario, then Manistee, Michigan, and settling in Montreal in 1953. In Harriet, he found a devoted and loving mate, who supported him in his career and his many other pursuits. When Harriet developed Alzheimers four years ago, it was Walt who returned that support by enabling her to live at home with him until close to the end of her life. Walt was a man who took a large bite out of life. He loved golf, flyfishing, shooting, skiing, sailing and tennis. He took up wind-surfing in his 60's, in-line skating in his 70's and cycling in his 80's. Blessed with boundless energy, he had an exceptional mind and a strong sense of duty. He and Harriet travelled extensively and didn't let the advancing years put a stop to exploring new places. He was a commanding presence, a wonderful story teller and an inspiration to his children and grandchildren. Over the course of a long and full life, Walter belonged to a number of clubs and associations. Notable among them were the Canadian Manufacturers' Association of which he was national president in 1974-75, the Institute of Applied Economic Research, the Board of Governors of the Montreal General Hospital, the Saint_James' Club, the Montreal Indoor Tennis Club, Sugarmill Golf and Country Club (New Smyrna Beach, Florida) and most beloved by him, the Royal Montreal Golf Club. A memorial service will be held on Thursday, December 21st at 11 a.m. in the Chapel of the Mount Royal Funeral Complex (1297 Chemin de la Foret, Outremont, Quebec, 514279-6540) preceded by a visitation beginning one hour before the service. In lieu of flowers, donations can be made to the Ste-Anne's Hospital Foundation, 305 boul des Anciens Combattants, Ste-Anne-de Bellevue, Québec H9X 1Y9 or to the Montreal General Hospital Foundation, 1650 Cedar Ave, Montreal, Québec H3G 1A4. The family wishes to thank the staff of 9A at Ste-Anne's Hospital for their kindness and compassion.
