MILNES, William Herbert
By Arthur MILNES, Page A26
Teacher, principal, coach, father, friend, reader. Born July 15, 1931, in East York, Ontario Died August 18 in Toronto, from complications of diabetes, aged 74.
The last words I had with my father were typical. Dad suddenly turned to me, leaned over the side of his emergency-room stretcher/bed and asked: "Art, do you think Bob Rae will win the Liberal leadership?"
I was anything but shocked at his question. W.H. MILNES, whatever the situation, even to his last day, was engaged in the affairs of the nation. Dad and I then chatted for five minutes or so about Mr. Rae and how much we both admired and respected the former Ontario premier.
Thirty minutes later Dad died.
At our family home in Scarborough I discovered the day's papers and saw that he'd devoured the news and opinion sections of three of Toronto's dailies before the ambulance came to take him from his home of 46 years. I could also see that he was well into three books - The Circumnavigators: The Pioneer Voyagers Who Set Off Around the Globe; They Thought They Were Free: The Germans 1933-45; and Gestapo: The History of Hitler's Secret Service.
Dad was a history teacher above all else. He truly loved the pages of the past. Through the thousands of his books we boxed up after his death I saw again how he'd sailed with Nelson at Trafalgar, marched with Grant and Lee in the 1860s and with Sir Isaac Brock at Queenston Heights, sat through the Long Parliament in Cromwell's time, watched Roman Legions occupy Great Britain, and read the Gnostic Gospels around desert campfires.
He began teaching history and Latin at R.H. King Collegiate in the early 1950s, later rising to the position of principal at King and later at David and Mary Thomson C.I. He then went on to serve in a supervisory role in the Scarborough Board of Education, but his heart was in the classroom and the high-school environment. He headed the History Club at R.H. King and spoke about it shortly before he died. We were sitting in the backyard, two steaks were sizzling on the grill and a glass of red wine was in his hand. As always, we were discussing politics and world affairs, and specifically, the war in Afghanistan.
I asked him where he had stood on the Vietnam War in the 1960s.
"In the History Club," he said, "we debated that one night right here in this yard. I had the students over and we came down against the war."
Outside the classroom Dad served as his school's football and hockey coach. And when he died, countless former students came by the funeral home to pay their respects to their teacher.
After my mom died in 1995 dad began a slow withdrawal from the world. He visited the Bendale Restaurant each day and always ordered the No. 3, a sandwich special (with fries) that changes each day. Once Dad's second-hand smoke had been decreed a risk, he took his food home each day -- losing the one daily social contact he had -- and ate by himself at our kitchen table, alone with his thoughts, his memories of teaching, and surrounded by his beloved books.
Dad especially loved visiting Gettysburg and other American Civil War battlefields on family trips. He'd read book after book beforehand so he could describe to his kids what had taken place; he also used to play hymns from that era on the record player. So when asked what music I wanted played at his funeral service I didn't hesitate: Battle Hymn of the Republic.
I knew that John Diefenbaker, another hero of my father's from history's endless pages, had picked that hymn for his own funeral in 1979. Dad would have liked that connection.
Arthur is one of W.H. MILNES' three children.

Woman charged in axe killing
Victim died from blow to the head
By Moira WELSH, Staff Reporter
As a special constable for GO Transit, Dennis HOY spent his days collecting tickets on trains and keeping order when trouble broke out.
HOY, 36, died early Friday morning when he was hit on the head with an axe while visiting his girlfriend's apartment on The Queensway, near Royal York Rd.
A 22-year-old woman, who rented a room in the apartment, has been charged in his death.
Neighbours said they often saw HOY's girlfriend and the woman walking cocker spaniels along The Queensway. The two women appeared to be very close, they said.
Toronto Homicide detective Bill VIEIRA said HOY was a frequent visitor to the apartment, adding police are still trying to determine the nature of the relationships among the trio.
"The circumstances of these three individuals are going to play an important role in the trial and are certainly going to become part of the evidence as it comes to trial," he said.
Neighbours, however, said HOY had been involved in a long-term relationship with one of the women, who they said was named Nicky.
One woman said Nicky rented out her extra bedrooms to a series of people over the years, leading to numerous disturbances and calls to police."
The apartment is above a coin laundromat, and two stores down from Anna MILONE's beauty shop, Empire Spa.
Nicky was a frequent customer, MILONE said. "It is just unbelievable, that this happened right here."
She said one of the neighbours heard shouting from the apartment shortly after midnight.
VIEIRA said yesterday that the autopsy showed HOY died from "blunt impact trauma" to his head.
Ashleigh PECHALUK has been charged with second-degree murder.

Migrant worker killed at farm
Tuesday, May 23, 2006
Saugeen Shores - A 39-year-old migrant worker was killed Saturday in a freak accident in Saugeen Shores.
Samuel GIL, a worker from Mexico on Hi-Berry Farms, which is located between Southampton and Port Elgin on Highway 21, was loading asparagus onto the back of a truck when the truck accidentally backed over him.
GIL, a husband and father of six, had returned to Hi-Berry Farms each year for the past five years to take part in planting and harvesting on the fresh-produce farm. [Death notice named him as GIL- MONTESINOS, Samuel Maurilio]
"We lost not just a worker," said the company's co-owner, Luke CHARBONNEAU, "he was also a friend."
CHARBONNEAU said they are trying to make arrangements to bring his wife to the area, so she can escort her husband's body back to Mexico.
"It's a tragic time for all of us," he said.
Driver and co-worker Abel RODRIGUEZ, also from Mexico, gave a statement to the police Sunday and it is not expected that any charges will be laid.
CHARBONNEAU said an autopsy is being performed today and funeral director Kent MILROY in Port Elgin is making the necessary arrangements to have GIL's body flown back to Mexico.
A news release from Saugeen Shores Police Service said GIL was taken by ambulance to the Grey Bruce Health Services Southampton site, where he was treated but succumbed to his injuries.
The Saugeen Shores Traffic Unit, along with the Ontario Provincial Police Technical Traffic Unit, were called in to assist, the release said. Saugeen Shores police Sgt. Ron CUILLERIER said the accident is still under investigation.

MILROY o@ca.on.york_county.toronto.globe_and_mail 2006-05-02 published
Bill MILROY, Army Officer And Consultant: (1920-2006)
Major who won a D.S.O. during the closing weeks of the Second World War later became a lieutenant-general and was given command of the Canadian Army
By Buzz BOURDON, Special to the Globe and Mail, Page S9
Ottawa -- By April of 1945, Bill MILROY was tired, bone tired, after more than a year of almost continuous fighting in Italy, Belgium and the Netherlands. Mr. MILROY, a major commanding B Squadron, 2nd Canadian Armoured Regiment, knew that Germany was in flames and close to surrendering, but when and where the Second World War would end was anyone's guess.
Hundreds of thousands of German soldiers fought tenaciously to defend their homeland and for Mr. MILROY and his battle-weary troopers, there were always more of them to kill or capture before they pointed their Sherman tanks toward the next objective. Still, they could almost smell the end.
"There was excitement in the air. It was difficult to realize that we were at last on Dutch soil and only a few miles from Germany," wrote Lieutenant-Colonel J.M. McAVITY in his 1947 history of the Lord Strathcona's Horse (Royal Canadians). "It had seemed very far away during the past year."
Fresh orders arrived on April 10, 1945. Mr. MILROY and his regiment were ordered to support the British army in Operation Cleanser, known as the second Battle of Arnhem, in the Netherlands. The Strathconas would fire their 75-millimetre guns in support for the assault, then push to the Zuider Zee, now called Ijsselmeer, 50 kilometres away.
Deploying his tanks with his customary skill, Mr. MILROY -- known affectionately to his men as Billy the Kid -- ran up against strong opposition from German anti-tank guns and infantry during the week-long race to the sea. On two separate occasions, on April 15 and April 17, Mr. MILROY, displaying "great personal gallantry," dismounted from his tank to make a personal reconnaissance on foot. "Then, in both cases, from the information gained, he put a plan into effect which was highly successful and most skillfully controlled and ensured the further advance of the regiment," an official citation said.
Sixty-one years later, Robert GREENE, an Anglican canon living in Calgary, remembers feeling alarmed when Mr. MILROY climbed down from their tank and walked down the middle of the road. At that time, Mr. GREENE was Mr. MILROY's gunner in their tank, which they had nicknamed "Brown."
"I jumped out with a Tommy gun and followed him to give cover. I said, 'Sir, shouldn't we be in the ditch?' He was fearless," said Rev. GREENE, who fought with Mr. MILROY for almost two years. "We would have followed him everywhere. He was a great commander." For his tactical brilliance, Mr. MILROY was awarded the Distinguished Service Order, one of only five Strathcona officers to receive it during the war. "During the entire period, Major MILROY was tireless in his efforts, consistently showing the greatest skill in handling his squadron and displaying magnificent coolness under fire," the citation said.
Bill MILROY grew up in small-town Saskatchewan where his father managed the local bank. After working on his grandfather's farm for several summers, he studied commerce at the University of Alberta and joined the Canadian Officers' Training Corps. Commissioned as an officer, he volunteered for overseas service and joined Lord Strathcona's Horse on August 13, 1941. That November, the regiment left Camp Borden, Ontario, for Britain.
Two years later, Mr. MILROY got his first taste of modern armoured warfare when he landed in Italy on December 1, 1943. For the next 11 months, he and B Squadron struggled up the Italian peninsula with the 5th Canadian Armoured Brigade. On May 24, 1944, he fought in the battle of Melfa River, part of Operation Chesterfield, in which Field Marshal Sir Harold Alexander's Eighth Army attack the Hitler Line south of Rome. In a two-day battle, the Strathconas' reconnaissance troop crossed the Melfa River, established a bridgehead and held it until a company from the Westminster Regiment, commanded by Major J.K. Mahony, arrived. Major Mahoney was later awarded the Victoria Cross. Shortly after, the Strathconas' commanding officer was wounded and Mr. MILROY took over temporarily.
Almost four months later, Mr. MILROY was wounded during the battle of the Gothic Line, a heavily fortified, mountainous defensive line that stretched across Italy north of Florence. During the action, Mr. MILROY and B Squadron repelled a German counterattack in the middle of the night that included fierce hand-to-hand fighting.
After things settled down, Mr. MILROY held a brief conference with two of his officers. Then the unexpected happened. "[It was] pitch black when what I assume was a German still in the area [threw] a grenade in our midst. When I came to, I was the only one left," he told his son Rollin in 1992. The explosion cost Mr. MILROY most of the hearing in his left ear.
He never spoke of his war experiences unless asked, said Rollin MILROY. " Then he was happy to answer. The stories that would spontaneously come out were always humorous, or about Friendship in some manner. While I don't think he ever attempted to convince himself war is anything but awful, he also recognized the many good qualities of people that emerge during such times."
After the war, Mr. MILROY remained in the army, serving at home and abroad in the United States and Britain. In 1953, he attended the Queen's coronation in London. Despite a fall of heavy rain, Mr. MILROY thoroughly enjoyed his job marshalling the Canadian troops marching in the procession. "[There was] a wonderful feeling of camaraderie that enveloped everyone during the period of the coronation. We all thought that we were in on the beginning of a bright new world. While it didn't quite work out that way, for those of us there the experience lightened our days for years to come. It was similar to the feeling one has when one is a member of a good Regiment, like the Strathconas," he wrote in In 1972, he was promoted to lieutenant-general and given command of the Canadian army, then called Mobile Command. After retiring in 1975, he worked in Ottawa as a consultant until 1988.
In 2001, Mr. MILROY was made a member of the Order of Canada, for his "exceptional leadership qualities as a volunteer. As national chair of the Canadian Corps of Commissionaires, he helped raised the status and profile of the corps. He also served on the board of governors of Ottawa's Ashbury College and has made immeasurable contributions to health care in the region and to the Salvation Army's fundraising operations."
Mr. MILROY never forgot his beloved unit and served as colonel of the regiment from 1971 to 1978. He donated the sabre he carried during the coronation to the regiment's commanding officers.
William Alexander MILROY was born on June 25, 1920, in Brownlee, Saskatchewan. He died of pulmonary fibrosis on February 20, 2006, in Ottawa. He was 85. He is survived by his wife, Ann, his son Rollin, his daughters Elizabeth and Alexandra. He also leaves his sisters Marion and Jean.

TURNER, Corinne T. (MILROY)
Our Mom left us on January 4, 2006, in the same manner that she lived - with courage and dignity. Remarkable resilience and strength sustained her throughout her life but it was time for her to join those she missed so much. Together with her parents, Mary and Jack, and her eight brothers and sisters, Corinne lived her early life in Bourlamaque, Quebec, where she met our father James (Jim) TURNER. They married and raised a family of five children, Ann, Jim, Paul, Kerry and Martha. After living for many years in Red Lake and Deep River, Ontario, Mom's tenacity shone when she and Dad moved to Toronto so she could start her new career working for a mining company. Her Friends, children, five grandchildren, beloved sister Marj, in-laws, and many nieces and nephews, will miss her sense of humour, discussions of current affairs, politics and the Leafs, and her unique ladylike manner. Her children, with the support of Shelley, Paula, Sue, Julie, Anton and Tom, and Marj, with Dick's blessing, shared many happy times with Mom in recent months in spite of her illness. We will treasure those moments. Our heartfelt appreciation to Dr. WORKENTIN, Dr. FALLIS and the nurses on G5 at Toronto East General for the care and compassion shown to Mom. For those who choose to, donations to the Salvation Army, Mom's charity of choice, would be fitting. As Mom requested, she will be interred with Dad in Saint Thomas, Ontario, in a private service.
