Hit-and-run victim popular
Michael Salentyn was due to graduate from Western in June with a degree in aviation.
By Peter GEIGEN- MILLER, Free Press Reporter, Fri., April 14, A 23-year-old man, struck and fatally injured in London by a hit-and-run driver this week, had just completed a four-year commercial aviation training program and was heading for a career as a pilot.
Michael SALENTYN of Grand Bend was on his way to achieving his lifetime dream.
He'd just finished four years of classroom and flight training in the University of Western Ontario's commercial aviation management program and was to receive his degree at convocation in June.
The death of the popular, dedicated and fun-loving student has hit people hard in University of Western Ontario's close-knit aviation program, leaving classmates in tears, said Keith FLEMING/FLEMMING, director of Western's commercial and administrative studies program.
"It's a horrific loss," said FLEMING/FLEMMING. "It has really affected people deeply."
SALENTYN was a highly accomplished student who excelled in a rigorous program that requires students to carry a full academic load and complete flight training.
"He was very strong academically and he excelled at the flight training," FLEMING/FLEMMING said. "He had to satisfy not just the university, but also Transport Canada."
SALENTYN is remembered as a bright, pleasing, gregarious and happy individual.
"I never encountered him in the hall when he didn't have a big smile on his face," said FLEMING/FLEMMING. "He clearly was in his element entirely and was doing what he wanted to do. He loved aviation."
SALENTYN had concern for others and took an interest in students in earlier years of the aviation program, FLEMING/FLEMMING said.
"I have many accounts of his caring way and how he was always looking out for others. He was watchful and considerate of others, a real leader."
SALENTYN was out with Friends when struck early Tuesday by a vehicle that failed to stop. He died later that day in hospital.
The hit-and-run occurred at Castlegrove Boulevard and Walmer Gardens in northwest London in a popular living area for Western students.
London police located the suspected vehicle several hours later a short distance away.
Oscar MARROQUIN- PONCE, 23, of Castlegrove Boulevard, was charged with leaving the scene of an accident.
A memorial fund is being created in SALENTYN's memory. The money will create a bursary to support a student in the University of Western Ontario aviation program.
Donations can be arranged through the Hopper Hockey Funeral Home in Exeter, phone (519) 235-1220, or can be sent to Foundation Western, Room 11, Alumni Hall, University of Western Ontario, London, N6A 5B9.
Cheque donations should be made payable to Foundation Western and should mention SALENTYN.

Hit-and-run ended party
A University of Western Ontario student walking home from an end-of-year party was struck and killed.
By Jane SIMS, Free Press Justice Reporter, Thurs., December 7, It was supposed to be a day of celebration for Michael SALENTYN. Instead, last April 11 was a day of tragedy and loss.
SALENTYN, 23, had just finished the commercial aviation management program at the University of Western Ontario. He'd accomplished his dream of becoming a pilot and was chosen to be the class valedictorian in June.
But while he was celebrating with Friends, a life of promise was cut short in a hit-and-run.
Yesterday, 23-year-old Oscar MARROQUIN- PONCE pleaded guilty to failing to stop for an accident causing death.
Assistant Crown attorney Peter ROLLINGS outlined the case for Ontario Court Justice Kathleen McGOWAN.
ROLLINGS said SALENTYN and his Friends had been at a party on Western Road, playing a drinking game and that SALENTYN consumed a lot of beer.
From samples taken later, his blood/alcohol level was measured at 172 milligrams of alcohol in 100 millilitres of blood, more than double the legal limit for driving.
The group left the party on foot about 2 a.m. On Walmer Gardens near Castlegrove Boulevard, they were playing "kick the can" with a plastic juice bottle. One of SALENTYN's Friends kicked the bottle onto Castlegrove.
SALENTYN was the only one who didn't see the car coming and went onto the road.
MARROQUIN- PONCE was returning home from working at the downtown Martini Bar. He had been drinking.
Earlier, he had played "kick the can" outside Jack's Bar on Richmond Street and had been dancing at the Martini Bar before leaving.
Friends said MARROQUIN- PONCE was considered "a responsible drinker,often" acting as a designated driver or not driving at all if he believed he'd drank too much.

In loving memory of "Red", husband and father and Douglas (Duke) son and brother.
A family has a special bond
It's love that forms the ties
And even in the darkest hour
That love will never die.
It's what we draw our strength from
In sadness and despair
Our comfort in the worst of times
Because it always there.
And when loved ones are taken
Although we have to part
We keep them in a special place
Deep within our hearts.

Pat MARSDEN, Broadcaster: (1936-2006)
Canadian Football League play-by-play specialist and radio host lived life large. He stiffed a Nevada casino over a gambling debt, took a swing at his boss and was bailed out of jail by Brian MULRONEY
By James CHRISTIE with files from William HOUSTON, Page S9
It was part of Pat MARSDEN's profession, as a caller of football play-by-plays and a radio host, to be a storyteller. But the Ottawa-born broadcast star didn't just tell entertaining tales he often starred in them.
Citing his Irish heritage, Mr. MARSDEN was alternately provocative, funny, obstinate, sentimental, pugnacious and -- until he stopped imbibing in recent years -- always willing to buy an adversary a drink while he hammered away with his opinions. "He had to get out of here because he couldn't get a rum and coke," his wife, T.A. MARSDEN, told radio station The Fan 590 yesterday morning from Sunnybrook Hospital, minutes after his death.
An eight-year stint as co-host of The Fan morning show was the last stop in a career of more than four decades behind the microphone or in front of the camera. Mr. MARSDEN even parodied sports broadcasters as a television actor, sporting a slicked-down comb-over, a loud plaid jacket and talking in exaggerated tones as he interviewed calamity-prone stuntman Super Dave Osborne (a.k.a. Bob Einstein) in a 1992 series.
He is best known for his play-by-play coverage of the Canadian Football League telecasts and Grey Cup championships in the 1970s and 1980s. He also worked as host of the 1972 Canada-Soviet Union hockey summit series telecasts. His longest stint was 19 years with CTV's Toronto flagship station CFTO, where he had a reputation for marching to his own beat. In a 1986 Globe and Mail interview, Mr. MARSDEN said bluntly, "Nobody tells me what to do and nobody tells me what to say, on or off the air. I developed a thick skin a long time ago and I don't care how people would like me to act. I won't be dull and I'll always have self respect." He declared that he would always be himself.
"He did it his own way," said long-time colleague Fergie Olver, who knew Mr. MARSDEN could make connections at the high and low ends of the social scale. "He was the only guy who was thrown in jail in Regina on a Friday night, and then he went to Montreal where he was thrown in jail again, and [former prime minister] Brian MULRONEY bailed him out."
Indeed, when Mr. MARSDEN signed off for the last time in May of 2004, Mr. MULRONEY phoned the station from Europe to congratulate him on his career.
Pat MARSDEN was an Ottawa native who started a career in radio as director of CKOY. He went on to become the long-time sports director of CFTO, returning to radio at CFRB after a stormy exchange with CFTO news and public-affairs vice-president Ted STEUBING over a technical problem. Mr. MARSDEN reportedly lunged across Mr. STEUBING's desk to scuffle with the boss.
He also worked with Bill Watters on TSN's The Sports Page. "Whenever I was with him, it would be 30 seconds and I'd either be laughing at me or laughing at him, or with him," said Mr. Watters, who had seen the lighter side of the broadcaster.
After Mr. MARSDEN retired and moved to Florida, Fan 590 executives sought him out in 1994 to fight a desperate ratings battle for Toronto listeners. He'd been out of the market some eight years, but The Fan program director Nelson MILLMAN said the station had pursued him to gain credibility for a new format.
"We'd come through two seasons of labour stoppages in sports&hellip we were floundering. We had Bob McCOWN in the afternoons and we needed to fix the morning show. Pat gave us some stability in 1994 and 1995. He was the right guy in the right place at the right time. He was a character like no other and he represented sport in this town."
At The Fan, Mr. MARSDEN at first paired with the hip and younger John DERRINGER. Both men were from the right side of the political spectrum, both had ties to the United States and an antipathy for prime minister Jean Chrétien.
Yet their chemistry was not great. Mr. MARSDEN had come from an era of radio crooners and crop reports, while Mr. DERRINGER from a culture of rock radio. There was more dissonance than charm in their old-young mix and Mr. DERRINGER ultimately departed. He was replaced by Don LANDRY, another young foil for Mr. MARSDEN.
"Pat and Don were much more opposites politically and in outlook toward life," said Mr. MILLMAN. " That made for better chemistry than someone who often agreed with Pat's political outlook. When sparks fly, that's entertainment."
Mr. LANDRY's comedic aptitude lightened the mood and ratings began to climb for an odd couple that could laugh at each other and at themselves. "Half the people loved it, half asked me 'why do you pick on Pat so much, '? Mr. LANDRY said. "Good chemistry or bad chemistry is a question of taste, but he was loved. By now, he's probably found Pierre Trudeau and is bawling him out for what he did as prime minister."
That scenario would be a stretch of the imagination. Mr. MARSDEN and Mr. Trudeau wouldn't fit in each other's version of heaven. Hell, possibly.
"Nobody's perfect, but nobody wore his imperfection as well as Pat MARSDEN," Mr. DERRINGER said. "The smile, the laugh, the ability to keep things on an even keel was always an inspiration."
Mr. MARSDEN commuted from his Florida home for the first few years of his Fan 590 job, rooming in Toronto weekdays and flying home weekends to the United States, always returning with gripes about Canadian gasoline prices, the non-functioning escalators at Pearson Airport and former Mr. Chretien's lack of support for U. S foreign policy. Later, Mr. MARSDEN and his family eventually moved back to Toronto.
The station opted not to renew his contract in May 2004. Rogers Communications, which owns the station, had the option of picking up three more years on a five-year pact that has been paying him $300,000 annually, but declined. They paid him off with six months remaining in his 2004 contract and Pat MARSDEN didn't complain.
"Getting up at 4 o'clock is so tiring, you can't function properly. I'm not at all disappointed.
"If they don't want you, they don't want you. I'm finished with the business. It's like you don't matter any more. That's fine. No use worrying about it. You take what comes along in life.'"
Mr. MARSDEN lived life large, enjoyed a party, loved his rum and his outings to casinos. In 1981, he managed to borrow $30,000 (U.S.) from the owners of the casino at The Dunes Las Vegas hotel in Nevada and signed a series of markers when his money ran out. He then left three cheques, two of them postdated. Back in Toronto, he stopped payment on the latter pair. The casino owners took him to an Ontario District Court -- and lost. Judge James TROTTER said that Nevada's gambling laws and demand for payment were "unenforceable in Ontario," and that Mr. MARSDEN's cheques were an "illegal consideration" under Ontario's Gaming Act.
Gambler though he was, Mr. MARSDEN knew he had no chance of beating cancer. He was diagnosed after visiting his doctor about a pain in his lower back. Lung cancer was found and it had spread into his bones. He had been a smoker since a young child "but I have no regrets. I'm 69 and I've had a good life with lots of laughs and lots of Friends. Lots of great memories."
"I started smoking when I was four years old," he once said in an interview with The Globe and Mail's William HOUSON. " Somebody said to me, 'Christ, where the hell did you grow up, in Mississippi?' No, but I had an old uncle who thought it was hilarious, as he and his pals sat around the kitchen table having a beer, if I would come in and have a smoke with them. That's when I started. I never quit."
While in hospital, he received phone calls from generations of broadcast colleagues and sports reporters. He was visited by Leo Cahill (former Toronto Argonauts coach), and Scotty Bowman (retired National Hockey League coach) and by Brian KILREA, the long-time coach of the major-junior 67's hockey team in Ottawa, where Mr. MARSDEN grew up.
"The only thing I can say is, don't feel sorry for me," he said. "I've had a terrific life and a terrific wife and great children, and I'm delighted with the way my life has gone.
"I would have liked for it to have been a little longer, but, you know, you reap what you sow."
Pat MARSDEN was born in Ottawa, November 8, 1936, and died of lung cancer in Toronto yesterday. He leaves his wife, T.A., daughter Taylor, son Connor, and three grown children from his first marriage: Mike, Patti-Lee, and Ruth Mary.

MARSDEN, Patrick F.
Canadian Sports Hall of Fame Broadcaster, died peacefully surrounded by his family, on Thursday, April 27th, 2006 at the age of 69 years. November 8th, 1936 was a day Mary Kathleen McGOVERN- MARSDEN would never forget. This was the day she would give birth to a happy, healthy, bright-eyed, bouncing baby boy, whom she would name Patrick, after her beloved father. As the years passed, Patrick held true the hope that every mother wishes for her child, to become a good and decent individual in society and someone who would by their example inspire others. Indeed, Patrick Frank MARSDEN will be remembered for his extraordinary ability in the world of broadcasting. He is recognized in the Canadian Sports Hall of Fame and the Football Reporters of Canada Hall of Fame for his outstanding contribution to the many sports arenas in which the sound of his voice, still echos the play by play. He loved sports, all sports. He played every kind of sport as a child in his home town of Ottawa, Ontario. He often regaled Friends and family with great stories, all filled with laughter and fun about his early years growing up in Woodroffe, or his days at St. Pat's High School, where he would meet lifelong Friends. Pat would never hesitate to tell you what a wonderful childhood he and his brother Bill experienced. Remembered by all who knew him, to be a straight shooter, he would always, "Tell it like it was", you always knew where he stood on the issues. He was never afraid to take the unpopular stand, as a sports broadcast journalist or as an individual; Pat MARSDEN never sacrificed his integrity. Above all else though, "Rosy", "Rolly", "Pinky", just a few of the nick-names his buddies had for him, Pat will always be remembered for his incredible, contagious and often irreverent sense of humor, his bright intellect and sparkling wit!! Even if you were really angry or upset with him, somehow that humour would take you over and you couldn't help thinking, this rosy-cheeked Irishman had indeed kissed the Blarney Stone and that he was truly funny and very smart!! Humor was his gift to the world, more than any other facet of his personality or his countless broadcasting accomplishments. His legacy to his children and his grandchildren is that wit and amazing sense of humor; forever genetically linked, meet any of them and you will instantly recognize that the "Marsden Wit" lives on!! Mary Kathleen or "Rose", as Pat so affectionately referred to his mother all her life and his, would be very proud of her boy. In the final and very short months of his life following his diagnosis of inoperable cancer, he was an example to all who knew and loved him. He never lost that unstoppable sense of humor nor did he for a moment feel sorry for himself or his lot in life, if anything, he was more concerned for the well being of those who stopped by for a visit. The outpouring of affection generated from the many Friends he collected over a lifetime was heartwarming to his family, as friend after friend appeared at his hospital door. They came from all over the country and south of the border just to say hello and tell him what was in their hearts. He expressed his satisfaction with a life well lived and a profound joy in the family and Friends that loved and surrounded him all the days of his life. His only wish was to be able to watch one more Grey Cup game, "Some Sunday in November", somehow you have to know he will find a way to do just that. Pat MARSDEN is survived by his wife Terryanne, his daughter Taylor and son Connor. Also survived by, Barbara MARSDEN and their children, Patti-lee INACIO, Michael MARSDEN, and Ruthmary DALLMAN; son-in-law, Carl INACIO; daughter-in-law Antoinette MARSDEN; cherished "Poppy" to grandchildren; Christopher and Bradley MEHLENBACHER; Matthew and Patrick MARSDEN; Derek and Nicholas DALLMAN; brother Bill MARSDEN of Ottawa.
