PURSLEY o@ca.on.york_county.toronto.globe_and_mail 2006-07-15 published
NORREY, Ernest G. -- Dispatch:
By Suzanne MA, Page M4
For more than 50 years, Ernest G. NORREY watched the city of Toronto grow up from his watch out on the waters of Lake Ontario.
He was only five years old in 1917, when he and his family travelled across the ocean to Canada from Newcastle-under-Lyme in Staffordshire, England.
As a teen, Mr. NORREY worked a number of jobs, including fixing and painting the roller coasters at Sunnyside Amusement Park, maintaining order as a bouncer at the Palais Royale ballroom, and keeping a watchful eye, as a lifeguard, at Sunnyside Beach.
"The sun and the water were a part of his life," said his grand_son, Brent NORREY. "It seemed to be the most important thread."
He married Phyllis PURSLEY, who worked in the cloak room of the Palais Royale, in 1937, and eventually he worked his way up to become a superintendent with the Toronto Harbour Police, patrolling Lake Ontario.
In 1949, he was one of the first on the scene when the passenger ship Noronic caught fire in the harbour. He spent the rest of the night hauling people out of the water. When Hurricane Hazel hit the city in 1954, a photograph of Mr. NORREY and his partner rescuing a drowning man from out of the Don River was printed on the front page of the Toronto Telegram.
"That was his job, to rescue people," his grand_son said.
Mr. NORREY died of congestive heart failure on July 5 at Oakville Trafalgar Memorial Hospital. He was 93.
