FAWCETT, Ted
The Fawcett Family would like to thank all their relatives, Friends and neighbours for the prayers and support shown since the passing of a dear Father, Grandfather and Great Grandfather, Ted FAWCETT. To Reverend Mark WAUGH for his meaningful service, David FRIES and his choir, soloist Jane IRWIN, the Annesley United Church Ladies for serving lunch at the reception following the service, the neighbours for organizing dinner for the family and the pallbearers, a sincere thank you. The family eulogies offered by Glenn WHITE/WHYTE and Joyce EAGLES and the piano favourites played by niece, Ruth DUDIAK, brought back many memories to all who attended the funeral. The staffs of both Markdale and Meaford hospitals and Dr. IRVINE who looked after Dad during the past several years, always had his best interest at heart. For this Dad's family are most thankful. To Brigitte and Grant MAY, thanks for your compassion and professionalism in supporting us at this difficult time and in helping us to plan a very meaningful service. The many cards, floral tributes and charitable donations remind us of how fortunate we are to live in such a caring community.
- Dale, Norma, Glenn and family

Frank HERSEY, Soldier And Civic Politician (1905-2006)
In 1932, he was a young army signaler borrowed by the Royal Canadian Mounted Police in its hunt for the Mad Trapper of Rat River. For weeks, he and a posse of about 20 chased a desperate gunman across the frozen wilderness
By Danny GALLAGHER, Special to The Globe and Mail, Page S7
Toronto -- Frank HERSEY was the last surviving member of a posse that tracked down the Mad Trapper of Rat River during a 240-kilometre chase along the Arctic Circle in 1932.
A party of more than 20 Mounties, soldiers, natives and trappers tracked Albert JOHNSON for weeks in -40° temperature. By the time the trek ended in the middle of a frozen river, two men were dead and two others were badly wounded. One of the wounded was Mr. HERSEY.
It all began with a complaint by trappers that JOHNSON was interfering with their trap lines. According to author Dick North, JOHNSON was probably Johnny JOHNSON, a convicted murderer from North Dakota, who set foot in Fort MacPherson, Northwest Territories, on July 9, 1931. After a series of complaints, Royal Canadian Mounted Police constables Alfred King and Joe Bernard set out in late December of 1931 to question JOHNSON. The next day, they found a cabin he was believed to use, but when one of the officers peered through a window, someone blocked it with a burlap sack.
The officers retreated and returned several days later with three additional men.
"Are you in there, Mr. JOHNSON?" Constable King shouted through the door. The fugitive responded by firing a bullet through a hole in the door, badly wounding the officer. The posse retreated, travelling 20 hours to get treatment for him.
Several days later, an even bigger party returned to lay siege to the cabin. After 15 hours of gunplay, a bomb was hurled onto the roof and the cabin collapsed. When the posse went looking for a corpse, JOHNSON stood up from a fox hole and started shooting. The siege had failed. JOHNSON disappeared into the wilderness and the Royal Canadian Mounted Police returned to Aklavik, Northwest Territories, to assemble a more sophisticated posse.
It was then that Frank HERSEY joined. A former high-school teacher from New Brunswick, he had joined the Canadian Army in 1927, spending six years in Aklavik as a communications expert, helping to construct and operate a radio station that broadcast to Edmonton. As part of the Royal Canadian Signal Regiment, he had vast experience in the North, became familiar with explosives and was a crack rifleman. He was also an experienced musher.
"My dad was chosen because he had the fastest dog team… seven huskies," said Mr. HERSEY's daughter Sheila. "He had the lead team. He was so familiar with the North and good on tracking. He was single in those days and he would always want to be doing something. He bred his dogs with wolves."
Notwithstanding his competence with dog teams, Mr. HERSEY's involvement in the manhunt marked the first time two-way radio was used by police in Canada. Another first was the use of an airplane in such an operation. While the posse travelled via dogsleds, First World War flying ace Wop MAY, an experienced bush pilot, searched from the clouds in a Bellanca monoplane equipped with skis. As a young pilot during the war, it was MAY whom the legendary Red Baron (Manfred von Richthofen) was pursuing when the German ace was downed and killed.
The search for JOHNSON was a formidable assignment. The fugitive eluded the posse in what was the coldest winter on record, using wilderness skills that seemed almost superhuman. Strapping on his snowshoes and weighed down by a backpack full of pots, pans, household goods and food, the stocky, muscular man of 35 was still capable of travelling two miles for every mile covered by the dogsleds.
At one point, the posse's advance party stumbled on a hut to be met by gunfire. JOHNSON scrambled behind a fallen tree and a two-hour interval unfolded in which nothing happened. Finally, Constable Edgar Millen became concerned that JOHNSON would escape and moved closer. JOHNSON fired several shots, striking Constable Millen in the heart. It was Mr. HERSEY who next day retrieved the body.
The pursuit went on for weeks until on February 17, Wop MAY spotted snowshoe tracks on the Eagle River and radioed Mr. HERSEY. Within hours, some of the posse caught up to JOHNSON. Going down on one knee, Mr. HERSEY shot at the desperado three times at a range of about 80 metres.
"I didn't want to kill JOHNSON. I have trouble killing flies," Mr. HERSEY once told The Quarterly, an Royal Canadian Mounted Police magazine. "I'd hit his back three times… and down he'd come and he was just disgusted with me. He reached behind and got the rifle and, bang. He hit me dead centre. I had fallen and gone over backward and down in the snow. He fired three more times at me as I lay in the snow and didn't hit me once. [I was hit] through my left knee."
Meanwhile, JOHNSON seemed untouched until finally a freak shot changed everything. An Royal Canadian Mounted Police bullet found the spare ammunition JOHNSON carried in his backpack and it exploded. JOHNSON was seriously wounded and the posse moved in for the kill. The fatal shot was a bullet in the spine. By some accounts, it was the last of 17 bullets found lodged in his body. Police recovered $2,410 in cash on him, along with gold fillings from corpses, a pocket compass, a razor, knife, fish hooks, a dead squirrel and a dead bird.
With the mission accomplished, Mr. HERSEY's life was on the line. The only man hurt in the final shootout, he was scooped up by MAY and flown to hospital in Aklavik.
"Without Mr. MAY's quick action, my dad would never have made it," his daughter Sheila said. "He was shot through the knee and the bullet then went into an elbow and into his chest. They found it embedded in flesh in his back."
The JOHNSON adventure spawned several books, including those written by Mr. North, several television productions and a fictionalized movie Death Hunt, starring Charles Bronson and Lee Marvin. Recently, it was featured on the History Channel's Manhunt series.
"Frank would always carry the bullet with him, the bullet from JOHNSON's gun," Royal Canadian Mounted Police chaplain and historian Gerry McMillan said. "Hollywood made a movie a number of years ago about the Mad Trapper but it was poorly done and far from being true to the account."
Mr. HERSEY remained in Aklavik for another year before he was transferred. Over time, he received postings to such places as Kingston, Montreal, Alberta, and Barrie, Ontario, where he eventually settled.
Drawing on his experiences in the North, the army called on him in early 1946 to participate in Exercise Muskox, a trial run to determine if snowmobiles could replace dogsleds. The 2,900-kilometre expedition ended with a reception in Edmonton in May. It was also during his army days that Mr. HERSEY had the great fortune of winning $157,000 in the Irish Sweepstakes, exceptional coin for those days. During the Second World War, he served in the army's Signal Corps Armoured Division, landing in Sicily. Somewhere along the way in Italy, he got to meet the Pope.
Mr. HERSEY retired from the army in 1955 at the age of 50 and settled in Barrie, where he became involved in local activities. Mr. HERSEY served on Barrie City Council for 16 years. He was voted Barrie's Citizen of the Year in 1960 and was a member of the local Rotary Club for close to 50 years. He was also a passionate curler until his 80s, often lying about his age so he wouldn't be passed over for bonspiels.
"If I tell them my real age, they won't pick me," he would often say.
Frank HERSEY was born on August 6, 1905, in Fredericton, New Brunswick He died in his sleep on January 1, 2006, in Elmvale, near Barrie, Ontario He was 100. He leaves his daughter, Sheila. He was predeceased by his wife, Olive, and his son, David.

MORTON, Alexander Howard (1910-2006)
It is with great sadness that we announce the passing of Alexander Howard MORTON in his 97th year. Howard was the loving husband of Luella, father of Robert (Julia), Doctor Gary (Mary Ann), Carol SAUVAGE (Christian), Susan MAY (Ian), Kathy FOX, Jo-Anne HANOPHY (Edward), Peter FOLKES (Martha), Peggy FOLKES (Buffy Bye). Dearly loved by his 18 grandchildren, 14 great-grandchildren, and 1 great-great-grandchild. Predeceased by his wife Gladys, and sisters Irene (Bunty) PHILLIPS and Ruth VISTORINO. At 16, after the death of his father, he worked for the C.P.R. until 1941 when he moved to Galt to work for Stauffer Dobbie, later Dobbie Industries, where he occupied the positions of General Manager, Director of Purchasing, and Personnel Manager. He retired in 1975 and continued as a consultant for 5 years. An active member of Knox's Presbyterian Church, he served as a ruling elder for 59 years, a Sunday School Superintendent for 17 years, and soloist and choir member for 66 years. Vocal music was always a very important part of his life. Apart from church music he was an active member of the Stauffer Dobbie Terry Troupers, Arcadian Male Quartet, Ewart Bartley Singers and Fleming Gray Chorus. An enthusiastic athlete he played hockey into his 50's, golfed and played tennis into his 90's. He was past president of the Soper Park Tennis Club and made many contributions to the life of the club. A life-long learner, he bought a computer at age 90 and by 95 was helping his Friends with computer instruction. He had an insatiable zest for life and loved to travel. A man of highest ethics, the example he set in life was an inspiration to all he knew and loved. A celebration of Howard's life will be held at Knox's Presbyterian Church, 2 Grand Avenue South, Cambridge, Ontario, on Friday, May 19, 2006 at 10: 00 a.m. in the sanctuary.

EASTON, Doctor Kenneth Lewis
Class of O.V.C. '58, University of Guelph. Doctor of Veterinary Medicine.
Transcended peacefully Monday morning, with Marita holding his hand. Beloved husband of Marita (MacRURY) EASTON, he will be sadly missed. Predeceased by Barbara MAY, mother of their children, Bambi, Paul and Kim. Dear father-in-law to Marisa. Dear brother of John and his wife Muriel. Grandfather to Katrine, Samuel, baby Megan, Amanda, Shane, Samantha, and Terri Ann. Grandson Sean will miss the great philosophical debates and scientific input. Ken will be especially missed by devoted puppy dog Clintus Minimus and the cats. Ken ran a housecall service for companion animals and was known to appear on an emergency response in the middle of the night. He lived life fully and worked very hard, enjoying a slice of pie and coffee with clients along the way. Veterinary life was his passion, pushing for amendments to Bill C-50, and ethical treatment of animals. Ken encouraged all to look upon our role as 'guardians to' rather than owners of our pets. He will be missed by Friends old, and new. Thanks for the Friendship from West Park and the wonderful staff and doctors who put up with his stubborn streak. Ken had an open mind, attending conferences and learning new approaches at every turn. He was bestowed the honour of a Lifetime Member of the Toronto Academy of Veterinary Medicine. Ken was afforded many happy years with the Ontario Humane Society, thanks to Tom Hughes and the Mobile Clinic. Ken even diagnosed 'Flipper' of the 60's fame. Marita and Ken loved to travel while they could, before Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary Disease slowed him down. He had boundless energy. Ken is now a part of the tall pines, free as a bird, one of God's sentient creatures, with a 'spirit that transcends the species'. Friends may call at the Turner and Porter 'Peel' Chapel, 2180 Hurontario Street (Hwy. 10, north of Queen Elizabeth Way), on Thursday from 5-9 p.m. A Celebration of Ken's Life will be held in the Chapel on Friday September 22, 2006 at 3 o'clock. If desired, remembrances may be made to the Ontario Humane Society.

CROSS, James (1937-2006)
Of Glen Haven, Nova Scotia and formerly of Waterloo, Ontario. Avid cyclist, keen sailor, musician, inventor, Renaissance man. Died 23rd of October after a brutal fight with oesophageal cancer. Deeply loved husband of Cilla, proud and loving father of five wonderful children: Kate GREGORY of Pontypool, Ontario, Martin CROSS of Vancouver, British Columbia, Sarah MAY of Southsea, Hants, England, Megan BOYKO of Boutiliers Point -- Nova Scotia and Gwenith CROSS of Halifax, Nova Scotia. Loving Grancher to Beth and Kevin GREGORY, Sasha CROSS and Alexander MAY. He was so looking forward to the birth of Megan's baby this December. Father-in-law of Brian GREGORY, Hine MIZUSHIMA, Keith MAY and Jacob BOYKO. Predeceased by their older brother Terry, James is survived by his fraternal twin Alan, in England (there could only be one James!.) His nieces Jackie GAYLER and Debbie LEDGER, his nephew Brian CROSS, and their families mourn him in England. Survived by Pat CROSS of Toronto, his former wife and mother of his three eldest children. Cilla's family, including Doreen REED, Elaine CALDER and Owen REED will also miss him. James was born in London, England, and raised in the Forest of Dean, Gloucester, England. The first in his family to attend university James excelled in academia and went on to become a professor of Electrical Engineering. In addition to his university teaching and research James was also an inventor. His power engineering and power supply systems, including the Cross Power Supply, are in use internationally. Plastic perforation technology developed by James is also being used in manufacturing. What James set out to do, he did. And more. He circumnavigated the world in his 26 foot wooden boat, Gay Goose, using only a chronometer, sextant and charts. He taught himself to play the wooden flute and enjoyed his years in Waterloo with the Grand River Ceili Band. Following early retirement he got great pleasure from learning to play the Northumbrian Bagpipes and enjoyed two piping tours with other pipers in New Zealand. Along the way his pursuits included keeping bees, climbing mountains or cycling down them on a tandem with Cilla, and always living life to the fullest. James' greatest passion was his cycling. In his youth he was a highly successful competitive cyclist and he continued cycling his whole life in all weather, thinking nothing of his frequent 100 km plus rides. He kept a bicycle with Friends in several countries in order to always be able to go for a ride. This summer, while in England, before the insidious cancer took firm hold, he surprised his doctors by doing several 60 km rides. James was a difficult man to live with but it will be extremely difficult to live without him. Life was always interesting with James. His love of talking, imparting knowledge and telling of tales made him many firm Friends around the world. Sincere thanks to Doctor Jyothi who gave James and the family compassionate care, Doctor Virik who gave him hope, and the nurses of the Victorian Order of Nurses, especially Patsy, who provided such kind and sensitive care, which enabled James to die peacefully at home. Those who wish can make a memorial donation to: Victorian Order of Nurses of Greater Halifax, 7001 Mumford Road, Tower 1, Suite 300, Halifax, Nova Scotia, Canada B3L 4N9. Cilla and the children invite family, Friends and acquaintances to bid farewell to James on Saturday, October 28th at 2: 00 p.m. at: Saint Margaret's Sailing Club, Crouchers Point Road in Mariners Anchorage, French Village. (Highway 333 Peggy's Cove Road) We will celebrate James' life and reminisce about him. Correspondence for the family can be sent to: Cilla CROSS, Glen Haven, Nova Scotia B3Z 2T1. "Even at our birth, death does but stand aside a little. And every day he looks towards us and muses somewhat to himself whether that day or the next he will draw nigh". -- Robert Bolt "But ten more years would have been nice." -- James CROSS
