London funeral today for two killed in crash
By John HERBERT, Free Press Crime Reporter, Wed., February 15, A retired Port Franks couple prepared yesterday to say a final goodbye at a double funeral in London today for their daughter and grand_son, killed together in a car crash.
"It's been horrible," said Bob RUTLEDGE, still dealing with the grief after last Thursday's two-car crash near Brantford. "They (were) two of the most outstanding people you'd ever meet in your life and I'm not saying that because I'm her dad and his grandfather."
Killed in the crash were James RUTLEDGE, 15, who lived with his grandparents, Bob and Eva RUTLEDGE, in Port Franks, and his aunt, Tracy RUTLEDGE, 45, the RUTLEDGE's daughter, who lived in Brantford.
"He (James RUTLEDGE) was my fishing buddy," Bob RUTLEDGE said. "He'd come from school and say 'Grandpa, there's still an hour of daylight... can we go fishing?' We'd always go to the river, Bayfield or Grand Bend. He'd go fishing four days a week and sometimes six. He didn't care if he caught a fish. He just loved trying out a new lure, being outside hiking, fishing or riding his bike."
The teen, a Grade 10 student in Sarnia, also was involved with the Port Franks Optimist Club. At one point he lived in London with his father and from time to time visited his mother, but in the last year he lived with his grandparents in Port Franks.
At the time of the fatal car crash, he was staying at his aunt Tracy's in Brantford for two weeks while his grandparents visited England.
Tracy RUTLEDGE was driving her father's car north on Highway 24 when it hit a patch of ice, went out of control and was hit broadside by another car.
Two Brantford-area people in the other car suffered non-life-threatening injuries.
Bob and Eva RUTLEDGE returned home from England the next day after receiving an overseas phone call from a family member about the crash.
Tracy RUTLEDGE drove a transport trailer for a living, sometimes travelling coast-to-coast.
Her sister, Londoner Laureen WINGERT, said they were close.
"She was one of those people you couldn't help but like… She had a huge impact on everyone she met, and especially kids. She was an incredible person with kids."
WINGERT said her sister's favourite time of the year was Halloween her birthday -- when she looked forward to decorating her house in Brantford.
Tracy RUTLEDGE collected beanie babies and bought, sold and traded them on the Internet to people around the world.
"It's been tough and it's tragic, but we're survivors," WINGERT said.

Critical-care unit pioneer 'driving force,' innovator
By Mary-Jane EGAN, Free Press Reporter, Tues., October 10, 2006
Dr. Bill SIBBALD, founder of critical-care medicine in Canada and a visionary who helped establish London's critical-care trauma unit, was wooed by hospitals across North America but chose to spend most of his career in London.
SIBBALD died September 14 after a battle with cancer. He was SIBBALD came to London in 1964 to attend the University of Western Ontario and made London his home for more than 30 years before leaving in 2000 to become chief of medicine at Toronto's Sunnybrook and Women's College Health Sciences Centre.
Dr. Murray GIROTTI, medical director of trauma care at London Health Sciences Centre, remembers SIBBALD as a key force in internal medicine and trauma who attracted trainees from around the world.
"Even though it's called the Richard Ivey Critical Care Trauma Centre, the lifeblood and driving force for the establishment of that centre at old Victoria (hospital) and the new Victoria really was Bill SIBBALD," GIROTTI said.
"He had job offers from all over Canada and the United States, but he really wanted to stay in Canada to influence the system here."
SIBBALD graduated from Western in 1970 and joined University of Western Ontario as chair of the critical- care program in 1977 after two years of training at Detroit's trauma unit.
He was president of the Canadian Critical Care Society and helped create a national training program in critical care in 1982.
SIBBALD also chaired the section of critical care medicine of the Ontario Medical Association and helped design a distinctive fee code with Ontario Health Insurance Plan for Ontario physicians dealing with critically ill patients.
SIBBALD put London on the map as the only Canadian hospital participating in a worldwide initiative to come up with a safe and effective blood substitute for such critically ill patients as cancer, stroke and heart attack victims.
"Bill's research interests spanned a wide spectrum, from looking for blood substitutes to understanding the effect of infection on your body. He did a lot of tremendously innovative things to support critical care," said GIROTTI.
On a personal level, GIROTTI described SIBBALD as "a real character."
"We loved working with Bill. He was an absolutely crazy guy to work with. He had endless energy, a great sense of humour, but you couldn't mistake his dedication to excellence in patient care, research and education."
Dr. Frank RUTLEDGE, chair of University of Western Ontario's critical-care program and site chief of the critical- care trauma centre at Victoria Hospital, first met SIBBALD in 1979 and counted him as both a colleague and a friend.
"He was a golfing buddy," said RUTLEDGE, who accompanied SIBBALD on an annual trek to Tampa, Florida, for a golf trip for London's then Memorial Boys and Girls Club.
"He was demanding," adds RUTLEDGE, who used to counsel people on how to "survive working for him."
His advice: "If he mentioned something once, ignore it. If it comes up a second time, start to pay attention. If it comes up a third time, it's probably worth pursing. And that's because he would have 100 ideas an hour and only those that kept recurring were worth pursuing because you couldn't possibly pursue all the ideas he had."
In an interview with The Free Press in 2000 when SIBBALD accepted the Toronto position, he spoke of his love for the Forest City.
"My heart will always be in London," he said.
SIBBALD is survived by his wife, Connie, and five children.

William SIBBALD, Doctor And Educator (1946-2006)
Physician-in-chief at Sunnybrook and Women's College hospitals in Toronto was an infuriatingly single-minded visionary who guided the city through the severe acute respiratory syndrome crisis and helped alter the nature of intensive-care treatment in Canada
By Douglas McARTHUR, Special to The Globe and Mail, Page S6
Toronto -- Bill SIBBALD was an ideas machine. Strategies, suggestions and potential solutions cascaded from his lips at the Ontario teaching hospitals where he built an international reputation, at global medical conferences and around the family dinner table.
His ideas helped to change the face of intensive-care treatment in Canada, to shape the way health care is delivered in Ontario, to guide Toronto through the severe acute respiratory syndrome crisis of 2003 and to inspire a new generation of critical-care professionals.
Dr. William John SIBBALD was director of critical care at Victoria Hospital in London, Ontario, and a professor at the University of Western Ontario from 1977 until 2000. Then he became physician-in-chief at Toronto's Sunnybrook and Women's College Health Sciences Centre and a professor of medicine at the University of Toronto. In both roles, he was a physician, teacher, leader, mentor and researcher.
"I used to tell people who didn't know him they should ignore something the first time he mentioned it," says Doctor Frank RUTLEDGE, who heads the critical-care programs at Victoria Hospital and Western. "They should pay attention the second time. The third time they should put it at the top of their pile. He threw out so many ideas, if you tried to work on everything the first time it was mentioned, you'd never get anything done." Doctor Steven SHUMAK, deputy physician-in-chief, says many of Doctor SIBBALD's ideas involved medical informatics, the application of computers and information systems to improve patient care and education.
Colleagues remember him as gruff but generous, an infuriatingly single-minded visionary who smoked heavily in his early years to burn off excess energy, but who gave it up after an operation for salivary gland cancer. He was an advocate for those he worked with, giving them his undivided attention in private meetings. In the workplace or on the golf course, he strove for perfection, but often interrupted a game to respond to a BlackBerry message. He occasionally told off-colour jokes and he followed hockey religiously, even when out of the country.
Dr. SIBBALD started work before dawn, even on weekends, so he could be home to spend time with his wife and five children. He coached his sons in hockey, attended his children's sporting events and told them all he was their "biggest cheerleader."
Over his career, Doctor SIBBALD wrote about 250 articles and editorials, more than 70 book chapters and some major textbooks on critical care. He was invited to give some 550 lectures in 16 countries. He held many positions with medical and critical-care associations.
Dr. Ron HOLLIDAY, a general surgeon at Victoria Hospital and a professor of surgery at Western, says Doctor SIBBALD was often thinking of issues five or 10 years down the road. And he always knew who to approach to get around the system. "We called it the SIBBALD end run," he says.
Critical-care experts around the world knew him as a friend and a trendsetter. "He was a fantastic scientist and a great clinician respected by all," says Doctor Jean-Louis Vincent, a professor of intensive care at the Free University of Brussels. "He could always ask the right question and raise the appropriate issue in any kind of debate or scientific discussion."
Bill SIBBALD, as his Friends called him, was the middle of three children of Jack SIBBALD, a banker, and Shirley (née STONE) who grew up in a suburb of Guelph, Ontario As a boy, he played basketball, football, badminton and hockey.
Gale KAY, now a retired Presbyterian minister, babysat him when he was about 12. "He was quite clear that he was going to be a doctor," she says, "not that he wanted to be a doctor, but that he was going to be one."
He was graduated from medical school at the University of Western Ontario in 1970 and stayed on to complete a residency in internal medicine in 1974. That was the year he married Connie ECKERSLEY, a nurse he worked with in intensive care.
From 1974 to 1976, he did a fellowship in critical-care trauma at Wayne State University School of Medicine, in Detroit. The specialty was in its infancy in Canada at the time, and he returned to London as one of the country's few experts in the field.
At the time, Victoria Hospital had become "a massive zone of deferred maintenance," according to Doctor David NAYLOR, president of the University of Toronto and a long-time friend. Doctor Adam LINTON, the hospital's physician-in-chief, put the young Doctor SIBBALD in charge of the intensive-care department where he overcame professional turf wars and put together a team of specialists in medicine, surgery and anesthesia. Doctor Trevor LOBB, an anesthetist at the hospital, says Doctor SIBBALD helped change "a glorified recovery room" into a critical-care trauma centre that treated patients flown in by helicopter and that trained fellows who came from around the world. In 1976, he made the news for using an armed forces pressure suit to control massive bleeding in a patient. A year later, he was in the headlines for telling a medical conference in France that the common practice of lowering the head of a critically ill shock victim might actually have detrimental effects.
In one highly publicized incident, Doctor SIBBALD, accompanied by Dr. HOLLIDAY, went to court in the middle of the night seeking permission for a blood transfusion to save the life of a Jehovah's witness boy. The judge bypassed the family's religious objections by making the boy a ward of the court, allowing the procedure to go ahead.
Much of Doctor SIBBALD's research centred on sepsis (disease-causing agents in the blood), trauma, blood substitutes, and ethical issues involving life-support and end of life. In later years, he branched out into the field of health-care policy and delivery.
For many years, he used sheep to study infections in people. "In our research lab at Victoria Hospital, you could hear the sheep baaing," Doctor HOLLIDAY says. Doctor SIBBALD introduced infections into the animals and studied the effects. Then he treated the sheep, so they didn't have to be destroyed.
He served as co-chairman of a Working Group on Critical Care in Ontario, which presented its findings to the province's health ministry in 1991. Over the years, he received many honours, including a distinguished investigator award from the American College of Critical Care Medicine in 1998.
Dr. SIBBALD turned down many job offers in the United States, and in 2000 he moved to Toronto as Sunnybrook's physician-in-chief. That put him on the front lines when many of the patients from the 2003 epidemic of severe acute respiratory syndrome ended up at Sunnybrook. He threw his back out while dealing with the crisis, so his bed at home became the command post where he kept in contact with officials from hospitals, government and the military.
In one phone call, he told Doctor Tom STEWARD/STEWART/STUART, director of critical care at Toronto's Mount Sinai and University Health Network, that his staff was starting to become ill. "He's a strong man, but he broke down crying," said Doctor STEWARD/STEWART/STUART. "It struck me how soft and sensitive he is."
Two back operations followed. Doctor SIBBALD returned to work after each of them, even though he had to hobble around the hallways.
After the severe acute respiratory syndrome emergency ended, Ontario's ministry of health set up a Critical Care Steering Committee. Doctor SIBBALD and Doctor STEWARD/STEWART/STUART were among its members. Many of Doctor SIBBALD's ideas showed up in the report and are now being implemented, Doctor STEWARD/STEWART/STUART says.
In November, 2004, Doctor SIBBALD was diagnosed with colon cancer. He carried on working and, hoping for a remedy, sought treatment at Roswell Park Cancer Institute in Buffalo. In early September, he was told the end was near. He resigned as Sunnybrook's chief of medicine on September 5 and spent the following week as a patient in the hospital.
Staff members still came to him for advice. Doctor Andreas LAUPACIS, now the director of a research institute at Toronto's Saint Michael's Hospital, asked for his opinion on an upcoming debate. "His eyes lit up," Doctor LAUPACIS says. "His energy came back. He said, 'Look at this article and that article and here's the point I would be making.' "
Dr. SIBBALD went Toronto on September 12. A day later, his fourth grandchild was born in Vancouver. His son Martyn phoned to say the baby would be called William. The next morning Doctor SIBBALD was shown an e-mailed photo of his new namesake. He died later that day.
William John SIBBALD was born in London, Ontario, on June 28, 1946. He died of colon cancer at his Toronto home on September 14, 2006. He was 60. He leaves his wife Connie; children Tammie, Martyn, Robert, Katie and Georgie; four grandchildren; his mother, Shirley, and sisters Nancy DAVIDSON and Susan TAILOR/TAYLOR.

LECHTZIER, Merton Richard
The only son of Samuel and Susan was born on November 12, 1925 in Minneapolis and lived briefly there and in Winnipeg before finally settling in Vancouver in 1927. Sam was one of 11 children of Abraham and Doba LECHTZIER who immigrated to Winnipeg from Russia in 1882. Rhoda, their eldest daughter, was the first surviving Jewish child to be born in Western Canada. Merton died at home on December 7, 2006. He was 81. Merton attended Point Grey, Magee high schools and University of British Columbia where he received a B.Com. Upon graduation, Merton joined his father at the family business, LaSalle Recreations, remaining there until his father's death in 1972. During the 30s, 40s and 50s, LaSalle outfitted theatres with chairs and carpet, and was a very popular social spot in Vancouver's early history. It housed on five floors 10 pin bowling (then the largest of its kind in North America), the only indoor golf course in the country, and a pool hall incorporated within The Young Italian Men's Club. Merton later converted LaSalle into a successful carpeting and interior decorating business. He was a leader in his field for many years. Merton had lifelong sartorial interests. He loved fashion and considered himself an authority on good taste and grooming. To him, the only thing better than the latest fashion was the same thing at half price. Away from the office 'Mert' was a consummate competitor and athlete. He played lacrosse and later basketball for University of British Columbia and had a life long passion for tennis (he was the longest serving member of the Vancouver Lawn Tennis Club). He loved playing cards and was a frequent visitor to Caesar's Palace in Las Vegas in its heyday in the 70's. The Western world has also lost one of the best crib players in his passing which he pursed with great verve. Mert was also an enthusiastic investor and speculator enjoyed following the stock market. He was one of Howe Street's earliest followers and rode the waves though many cycles. Beyond everything else, however, Merton was a family man, very private and happiest at home and among the familiar, a creature of routine and tradition, and was absolutely and unequivocally devoted to his family and particularly his dear wife of 53 years, Bette (née HEARD,) whom he married on August 12, 1953. They soon moved to Shaughnessy where they remained under the same roof for over 40 years. Mert and Beebz enjoyed hosting parties and travelling to exotic locales with their many close life long Friends. Merton was intelligent, compassionate, opinionated, argumentative, generous, a lousy driver (but "the world's best parker"), incredibly stubborn, forever impatient and possessed a wicked sense of humour. Above all else, he was a loving husband, father and grandfather. In 2000, when his dear Bette was afflicted with dementia, Merton totally and absolutely devoted his entire existence to Bette's welfare, forsaking everything to that cause. While it is always a tragedy to lose a father and a friend, it is particularly difficult to lose Dad at Christmas as he eagerly anticipated the occasion and kept the spirit of the season throughout the year. He will be very sadly missed and like all special things in life, was unique and irreplaceable. Merton is survived by his beloved wife Bette, his three children; Matthew of London, England, Paul (Jennifer DOLMAN) of Toronto, and Sally (Jeffrey RUTLEDGE) of Vancouver, and six grandchildren; Sam, Adam and Emma RUTLEDGE and Harris, Sasha and Abby LECHTZIER, as well as his sister Donna KORENS of MacLean, Virginia. The family thanks the Pacific Spirit Community Health Centre and particularly Sally Hill who walked on water in Dad's eyes and whose care and concern were so appreciated. In addition, we thank Helen Combs for her loving attention to both our parents over the last few years. Donations to the Canadian Cancer or Alzheimer Societies would be appreciated.
