Killed 'over nothing'
Single father, 40, dies of gunshot wounds in a Saint Thomas pub
Saint Thomas -- One minute yesterday morning, Robert THORPE Jr. was sitting in a downtown bar here with an acquaintance.
The next, he was dead of gunshot wounds and the man suspected in his shooting was himself shot by police.
"It (the shooting) was over nothing," a grieving Carol THORPE said of the fatal shooting of her 40-year-old son, Robert, in the Manx Arms Restaurant and Pub on Talbot Street, a lunchtime hangout for the city's downtown business crowd.
Carol THORPE said her son, a single dad who lived for his nine-year-old daughter, Hailey, was shot "six or seven times."
THORPE's shooting was the first homicide in Saint Thomas in 13 years.
Saint Thomas police said yesterday THORPE was shot just before 1 a.m. He was taken to hospital, where he died.
A man police say is a suspect, Nelson MERRIT, 33, of 348 Wellington Street, was shot and wounded minutes later by two Saint Thomas police officers in a nearby parking lot. The province's Special Investigations Unit is investigating MERRIT's shooting, while Saint Thomas police are in charge of the homicide probe.
Rose BLISS of Special Investigations Unit said two officers fired at MERRIT, who was taken to hospital in London with non-life- threatening injuries.
He has not been charged.
BLISS said last night MERRIT would be turned over to Saint Thomas police when released from hospital. BLISS would not say how many shots were fired by police or if the suspect exchanged gunfire with the officers. She also would not say if a weapon was found.
THORPE was described by his mother as a "brilliant kid."
Carol THORPE said her son was a tool-and-die maker at the Timken plant in Saint Thomas, where he had worked for more than 20 years. She said he also had a boat in Port Stanley and loved fishing with his daughter. She said her son was divorced and had custody of his daughter, who now is staying with her other grandparents.
"He spent many, many hours with his daughter," Carol THORPE said. "He was her world and she was his life. He did so many things with her. He built her a go-kart. You name it and she had it."
THORPE said her son was a handyman and had gutted and fixed up old homes in Saint Thomas, one of which he lived in.
Crime tape surrounded the front and back entrances of the Manx Arms yesterday.
Saint Thomas residents interviewed yesterday didn't know there had been a shooting.
"I didn't have a clue what happened," said a woman who lives in a rear apartment unit above the bar. "I didn't hear a thing when I was asleep."
Donny BURT, another apartment dweller, said he was up until 3 a.m., but didn't hear anything.
He called THORPE's shooting isolated, saying people don't usually pull out guns in Saint Thomas.
The operator of a nearby business said the shootings underscore the dangers of bar life -- even in Saint Thomas.
"I tell my son all the time you never know what will happen in a bar. I tell him to keep his mouth shut because somebody always wants to fight."
Saint Thomas police Const. Glenn HODGSON said police were called to the Manx Arms at 12: 50 a.m. but wouldn't say what happened in the bar before the shooting.
He said police couldn't comment further because they're prohibited from discussing cases in which the Special Investigations Unit is involved.
The bar's management could not be reached for comment.
The Special Investigations Unit, a civilian agency, investigates circumstances involving police and civilians that have resulted in serious injury, sexual assault or death.
BLISS said seven investigators have been assigned to yesterday's shooting.
The last homicide in Saint Thomas involved a husband and wife. Soodarsan BAJRANGIE- SINGH, then 62, was convicted in 1996 of the second-degree murder of his wife, Madeen SINGH, then 58. She was shot 13 times in the backyard of their Centre Street home. SINGH was sentenced to life in prison.
Saint Thomas police were last involved in a shooting in 1985, when two city police officers shot Gary STEVENSON, 36, in his backyard on Churchill Street after he pointed a gun at them.

SYKES, Harold Joseph John
Peacefully in his sleep, as he wished, at his home in London, Ontario, on February 23, 2006 in his 88th year. Harold was the devoted husband and friend for 54 years of Fern SYKES (née MERRITT,) who passed away in 2000. Cherished father and father-in-law of Gail and Joe McCARTY (London) and Stephanie SYKES (Montreal.) Dear grandfather of Scott McCARTY (Dorchester) and Dr. Tracey McCARTY and her husband, Rick RIGBY (Carlisle.) Several great grandchildren will miss Grandpa Harold's warm smile, his unwavering kindness, his wit and sense of humor: Nicole McCARTY (Dorchester,) Lauren, Ryan and Erin RIGBY (Carlisle.) Harold leaves two brothers, Vern SYKES (Dundas) and Stanley SYKES (Burlington,) who, with nieces Elaine MacMILLAN (Hamilton) and Diane NICKS (Stoney Creek) and nephews Bill MacMILLAN (Hamilton,) Vern MacMILLAN (Stokes Bay,) Ross SYKES and Neil SYKES (Burlington) will mourn the passing of a fine and decent man. Harold is predeceased by his mother, Eliza and father, Harold Richard; his sisters Marion TOWNER (California) and Eileen MURRAY (Hamilton;) his son-in-law, Chuck McCARTY (London.) Harold and Fern leave many Friends and extended family in the Hamilton-Stoney Creek area where they lived for several years. A veteran of World War 2, Harold served his country overseas with the Royal Canadian Air Force. He donated his log book to the National Archives, the contents of which document a harrowing tale of a Sunderland aircraft downed in high seas off the coast of West Africa in July, 1944. A quiet hero, Harold rarely spoke of his accomplishments. When he met his lifelong love, Fern, she mentioned a friend of hers, a veteran, who was a member of "The Gold Fish Club" (fliers who had survived ditched aircrafts on the high seas). It was not until years later, after they married, that Fern learned Harold, himself, was a "Gold Fish"! He lived his life simply, with honor, truth and dignity, caring most for those near him who needed a helping hand, a shoulder to lean on, a word of encouragement, a strong but warm heart. He spread light, but as Edith Wharton wrote "There are two ways of spreading light: to be the candle or the mirror that reflects it". Harold most often reflected the light of those he loved and who loved him. The world is less light today without that mirror. As he wished, Harold's remains have been cremated. His family will gather for a private and simple interment at Forest Lawn Memorial Home and Gardens, 2001 Dundas Street, London on Saturday March 4 at 10: 00 a.m. At 11:00 a.m. on Saturday March 4, Friends and family are invited to join together for an informal reception to remember Harold and Fern: Reception area of the Forest Lawn Memorial Home at the same address. In lieu of flowers, Harold would have suggested two appropriate tributes: donation to the charity of your choice and take a few extra hours today to spend with those you love.

SCHEEL, Dorothy Florence (KNOTT)
Of Wilson Avenue, Delhi passed away peacefully at the London H.S.C., Victoria Hospital on Sunday, February 26, 2006 in her 79th year. Dorothy was a loving partner and wife for 62 years. She was born in Dorchester and married at 17. In childhood, she is remembered as the one always on the go and 78 years later it was still challenging to keep up to her. Dorothy was a devoted and loving mother to Jan and Michael who learned the meaning of determination, fun and integrity. She was a very proud grandmother of Abby and Kate, and was always delighted by their visits. To Dorothy's many dear Friends, her sense of fun and humour, her loyalty, common sense and honesty were always appreciated. With her sharp mind, intelligence, keen sense of business and financial affairs, she and Mike were successful in all they endeavoured. Her love of life showed up on the dance floor, playing a vigorous game of cribbage or euchre, creating a beautiful flower garden, spending a weekend with her sister Audrey, celebrating special occasions with joy, reading a favourite new book, creating delicious meals, spending time alone or taking a drive to Port Dover for a foot long hot dog and some people watching. After retirement one of Dorothy and Mike's favourite things was to jump into the car and go for a drive. It didn't matter where or for how long. But you can be sure it would always be Dorothy in the driver's seat! Throughout her 78 years, Dorothy touched the lives and hearts of many. She was deeply loved and will be deeply missed. Former Dorothy Florence KNOTT. Beloved wife of Michael SCHEEL. Loving mother of Jan SCHEEL (Margie COGILL) and the Late Michael SCHEEL Jr. (1999) and his wife Jane SCHEEL. Cherished grandmother of Abby and Kate SCHEEL. Dearest sister of Audrey McGUGAN and Jean SMITH (Verne.)
