Trying to reconcile a man's life and death
Friends are wondering how a college student from a good family ended up shot dead by police, writes Anthony REINHART
By Anthony REINHART, Page A11
Toronto -- Until a couple of weeks ago, anyone who knew the real Shelton McKENZIE would have expected to find him out clubbing last night, toasting his 21st birthday on some Toronto dance floor in smooth urban attire and a fresh pair of Jordans.
Instead, his Friends dressed for a visitation yesterday at a funeral home in his hometown of Ajax, east of Toronto, to file past Mr. McKENZIE's coffin and wonder whether they really knew him at all.
Specifically, they've been wondering how Mr. McKENZIE -- who came from a middle-class suburban family, who worked as a produce clerk through high school, who had young women lining up for his ever-respectful attention, and who took police courses in college just last fall -- wound up shot dead by police this month.
It happened just before dawn on Thursday, April 13, near an upscale home in the Thornhill community north of Toronto, where the THOMPSON/THOMSON/TOMPSON/TOMSON family had just endured a home invasion robbery.
York Regional Police arrived as Mr. McKENZIE and another person fled in the THOMPSONs' pickup truck. Officers opened fire on the truck, killing Mr. McKENZIE. The second man ran off and holed up in another home and was arrested within hours.
Ontario's Special Investigations Unit, which probes deaths and injuries related to police, is still examining the killing of Mr. McKENZIE.
But York police have linked the two men to five home invasions in and around Toronto since late February, including the gunpoint robbery of Sherry COOPER, chief economist at BMO Nesbitt Burns, and her husband, Peter.
As she squinted through the murk of predawn to find two masked men standing in her bedroom, Ms. COOPER felt surprised, bewildered and terrified on the morning of March 13.
Police say Mr. McKENZIE was one of the two mud-splattered men standing before her and her husband. The pair had broken into the COOPERs' ravine-side home in Hogg's Hollow, an exclusive enclave in North Toronto.
They bound the couple with duct tape, ransacked the house and fled with cash, jewellery, computers and BlackBerrys.
Their masks, and the shock that gripped the COOPERs, made them all but impossible to identify.
"We refer to the 'old guy' and the 'young guy' when we speak to each other, or the 'big guy,' Ms. COOPER told The Globe and Mail, "and we're not even sure we're referring to the same people."
Ms. COOPER, 55, was also caught without her glasses or contact lenses. "I'm not blind without my glasses, but it was pleasingly fuzzy, believe me. I didn't particularly want to be 100-per-cent conscious."
She was conscious enough, however, to talk her way to some relief after one of the men, armed with a gun, pinned her to the bed.
"He said he wanted jewellery and I said, 'Let me show you… where it is,' Ms. COOPER said. "So, fortunately, that got us to stand up and walk in there" to where her valuables were stored.
The couple were led downstairs and taped to a pillar. One man stood guard, pointing a gun at them, the other combed the house, selecting items to fill his backpack and tossing others to the floor.
Asked whether either man seemed like a novice, or a junior partner, Ms. COOPER had this to say about the one who stood guard: "Until the very end I would have thought that he was more nervous, and that he wasn't as aggressive, he wasn't a leader," she said.
"However, at the end, I managed to get myself out of the tape, and it was that stand-guard guy that saw me. And then he grabbed me and, you know, pulled me up the steps and told me, now he's going to have to hurt me, now he's going to have to shoot me, and he threw me down on the floor and said he was going to have to shoot me.
"And it was the other one who said, 'Take her back downstairs.' So they just retaped us."
"There wasn't, like, a good cop and a bad cop; there wasn't a leader and a follower," she said. "They were brutal. They clearly hated us, just [because of] what we had."
But for the people who knew or encountered Shelton McKENZIE, nothing is very clear. No one -- from coaches and former co-workers to Friends and the police themselves -- has been able to reconcile the way he lived with the way he died.
"I really don't know how or why he became involved," Detective Sergeant Fred MOFFATT of York's holdup squad said, adding that police have seen more young people from trouble-free backgrounds jumping "right into doing robberies."
Sometimes the goal is to win acceptance from a gang. Others are dragged in by underworld creditors, such as drug dealers.
"I don't know if that's the case here, so I would never say that," Det. Sgt. MOFFATT said. "We're still investigating and still trying to figure out exactly where he comes from. But yeah, it's a mystery."
Mr. McKENZIE's parents, who have requested privacy from reporters, are "just blown away" by what happened, said Lance BROWN, their pastor at Refuge City Pentecostal Church in Ajax. "I knew Shelton. He was a great kid," Mr. BROWN said.
At the No Frills on Kingston Road in Pickering, Tony CORNACCHIA recalled how Mr. McKENZIE "always asked for as many hours as I could give him" in the produce department, where he was the most experienced part-timer, until he left the job a year ago. "I left him in charge quite a few times, on evenings and weekends."
Mr. CORNACCHIA remembered driving the young man home to his parents' relatively new house in west Ajax, where he lived with an older brother, a younger brother and a sister. He described the family as hard-working and strict, particularly the mother, who insisted that her son help pay his own way.
"It seemed like they were a very disciplined family," he said, and when he heard the news of Mr. McKENZIE's death, "I was surprised just like everyone else."
Ms. COOPER had trouble squaring the wholesome image of Mr. McKENZIE with the man who caused her to feel such terror that morning, a terror that she said has changed her life forever.
"It is inconceivable to me that some normal, 20-year-old, good kid finds himself just accidentally in this kind of situation," she said. "I have a son who's not much older than that and, honestly, I just can't even fathom how you get yourself in that situation unless you've been… involved with some real bad people for a while."
If that's the case, Shelton McKENZIE kept his secret life well hidden.
At J. Clarke Richardson Collegiate, where he graduated in 2004, basketball coaches Steve DAWSON and Mike McFETTERS stood in the gym last week, puzzled.
"Whatever happened, we didn't see it coming," said Mr. DAWSON, a middle-aged man who traded easy, good-natured jibes with the popular all-star nicknamed Springz for his jumping prowess.
Mr. McFETTERS said his star rebounder avoided situations that looked like trouble and could take a beating on the court without losing his cool.
"He wasn't a violent kid," he said, but acknowledged he'd seen Mr. McKENZIE just three times, for a total of about 20 minutes, in the two years since he left Richardson. The last time was just before Christmas, when the young man dropped by the school after his first semester in the police foundations program at Durham College in Oshawa.
Mr. McFETTERS said Mr. McKENZIE was conflicted over whether to continue his studies, citing the cost and the commute as challenges.
"If he wasn't sure what he wanted to do, he didn't want to go [back to college] until he could figure things out," the coach said.
With that, he asked Mr. McFETTERS about his wife and daughter, and congratulated him on the impending birth of a second child.
With his death, "there's just questions that I don't know if we're ever going to get the answers to now," the coach said.
Similar questions are circulating among Mr. McKENZIE's Friends, 236 of whom are linked to his profile on hi5.com, a Web gathering place. Since his death, many have posted photos and comments, written in the vernacular of on-line chat.
"i cant begin 2 understand y USA did wat USA did," wrote one. 'it wasnt ur thing… it wasnt like u. buh im not tryna hold nothing on u. Ire gota 4give u… even tho now ur gone 4ever."
Several young women claimed Mr. McKENZIE as their dream man, and gave accounts of long telephone conversations, nights out dancing, tender moments and hopes for a future together.
In an interview this week, Jennifer VIEIRA, 19, said Mr. McKENZIE's attractiveness was no mystery when she met him after the 2004 Caribana parade in downtown Toronto. He was not only well-dressed, but also a gentleman.
"He said, 'I'll call you in a couple of hours,' and he actually called me back later," she said. "He was coming off real. He wasn't being fake at all."
What was real and what was fake is sure to cross the minds of many at Mr. McKENZIE's funeral this morning, inside the Revivaltime Tabernacle in Pickering.
But inside the church and out, it seems, God only knows.

Suspect was all-star dunker
By Gail SWAINSON and Madhavi Acharya-Tom YEW, Staff Reporters
His Friends called him Sprinz for his big-bounce slam dunk on the high school basketball court.
Shelton McKENZIE, a former hoops all-star, was shot dead by York Regional Police in Thornhill Thursday as he allegedly tried to mow them down with a stolen pickup while fleeing a botched home invasion.
Investigators say McKENZIE and Kevin HARRIS forced their way into the posh Thornhill home of Mike and Bev THOMPSON/THOMSON/TOMPSON/TOMSON early Thursday and roughed up the couple.
Their terrifying ordeal came to a quick end after their teenage son, who managed to hide from the invaders, called 911 to summon help.
Police rushed to the scene, only to confront two men as they attempted to drive off in the THOMPSONs' truck.
Officers fired at the vehicle, killing McKENZIE and bringing the bullet-riddled truck to a stop on the lawn of a home across the street, McKENZIE slumped over the seat.
HARRIS, who was slightly wounded by police gunfire before running off, was found 90 minutes later about a kilometre away.
While the victim has yet to be formally named by police, Friends and family positively identified him as McKENZIE.
Ontario's Special Investigations Unit, which probes all deaths involving police, has been called in.
HARRIS, 26, of Ajax, was charged Friday with five counts of armed robbery, 10 counts of forcible confinement and five counts of wearing a disguise.
The charges include the Thornhill incident and home invasion-style robberies over the last few months in Vaughan, Richmond Hill and Toronto.
McKENZIE had attended J. Clarke Richardson high school in Ajax in 2004 he finished second in the slam contest at the Lake Ontario Secondary School Association's all-star games.

Donald THOMPSON/THOMSON/TOMPSON/TOMSON loved family and the law
He would read a book a day and made regular visits to the local library, said daughter and Owen Sound mayor Ruth LOVELL
By Scott DUNN and Denis LANGLOIS, Sun Times Staff, Page A1
Long-time Grey County Justice Donald THOMPSON/THOMSON/TOMPSON/TOMSON died Monday in his 90th year.
THOMPSON/THOMSON/TOMPSON/TOMSON practised law in London, Ontario, from 1940 until his appointment to the Grey County court bench in 1970. He retired in 1990.
THOMPSON/THOMSON/TOMPSON/TOMSON's daughter Ruth LOVELL, the mayor of Owen Sound, said the family will always cherish her father's humour.
"He had a wonderful sense of humour," LOVELL said in an interview Tuesday evening.
She said her father had two passions in life -- his family and the law. Mr. THOMPSON/THOMSON/TOMPSON/TOMSON adored his grandchildren, LOVELL said, and they spent a lot of time with him.
He enjoyed cross-country skiing, cycling and reading.
LOVELL said he would read a book a day and made regular visits to the local library.
That love for the library has prompted the family to ask that donations be made to the library's book fund in memory of Mr. THOMPSON/THOMSON/TOMPSON/TOMSON and in lieu of flowers.
Owen Sound lawyer Brian BARRIE said he had "nothing but admiration" for Justice THOMPSON/THOMSON/TOMPSON/TOMSON.
BARRIE recalls hearing as a young lawyer Justice THOMPSON/THOMSON/TOMPSON/TOMSON was supposed to be "smart, curt, A bit crusty," -- a worrisome prospect for a young defence lawyer starting out in county court.
"I found him to be smart, very polite but he would not suffer fools lightly," BARRIE said. "And he usually had the case figured out with the right decision long before the lawyers got to the end of their presentations."
Justice flew with him because he was so efficient.
When he wasn't busy he made some calls to other jurisdictions, looking for work to do, BARRIE said.
BARRIE noted the judge's sense of humour and that "all that crustiness was just a little bit… a gown that he wore because he had a real touch for humanity and understanding of humanity and loved a good story and could laugh with the best of them."
Ralph ADAM/ADAMS, a Sun Times reporter for 11 years, remembered the judge as a "regular guy."
He would talk with the judge in his chambers about matters in court, some he'd use in stories and some he wouldn't.
"He ran it pretty well. He wasn't too harsh," ADAM/ADAMS recalled Wednesday.
Mr. THOMPSON/THOMSON/TOMPSON/TOMSON is survived by his wife Eleanor, three children, including Peter and Tim, his grandchildren Kelly, Scott and Chris LOVELL, Sean and Jennifer THOMPSON/THOMSON/TOMPSON/TOMSON and Mimmi, Lina and Erik THOMPSON/THOMSON/TOMPSON/TOMSON and great-grandchildren Alexis and A.J.
He is also survived by his sister, Ruth Dawson, and his brother Jack THOMPSON/THOMSON/TOMPSON/TOMSON. Predeceased by his brother, Alfred.
A celebration of his life will be held at a later date.

Doctor remembered for putting others first
Former Lion's head physician at some 1,500 births
By Jim ALGIE, Sun Times Staff, Page A1
Her colleagues knew her as a cheerful, conscientious physician. Her children knew her for a dedication to her profession that carried through more than 40 years of family practice on the Bruce Peninsula and often interrupted her personal and family life. Her patients just knew her as Doctor Norma.
Dr. Norma HOPKINSON, 82, died suddenly Thursday at the Grey Bruce Health Services hospital in Owen Sound.
A memorial service was to he held at 2 p.m. today at Central United Church in Lion's Head.
Although Doctor HOPKINSON had moved in recent years to Owen Sound, Lion's head is the place where both she and her husband, the late Doctor Mervyn HOPKINSON, worked together for years. They were instrumental in the construction in the late 1950s of a community hospital in the village which served as a health-care base for people living on the peninsula.
Dr. HOPKINSON, the presiding physician at more than 1,500 births, was well known throughout the region. Even on the day she died, daughter Joan IRVINE met three health-care workers in the hospital emergency department who were former colleagues or patients, including one delivered by Doctor HOPKINSON.
"She lived for other people, I would say," IRVINE said in an interview. "I walked in the night she died into the emergency room and all the people there had been touched by her. She lived for other people, to help other people."
When she retired in 1991, Doctor HOPKINSON told Sun Times reporter Pam HEAVEN she was one of only three women in the University of Western Ontario's 1946 graduating class.
Back then there was a quota that allowed only 10 per cent of medical students to be female.
Following internships at Saint Michael's and Women's College hospitals in Toronto, she began in practice in the Orillia area where she met her future husband. They moved together to Lion's head in 1951 and stayed.
For several years afterward, the HOPKINSONs were the only doctors on the Bruce Peninsula.
A retired colleague, Doctor Jim LEESON of Wiarton, knew Norma HOPKINSON as a fellow student at University of Western Ontario.
"She always seemed to be a cheerful, conscientious physician who kept up to date," LEESON said in an interview from his Sauble Beach home.
Dr. HOPKINSON was in a wheelchair during their last meeting, a dinner out in Owen Sound, but was alert and in reasonably good health otherwise, LEESON said.
Because the Bruce Peninsula is a habitat for poisonous Massassauga rattlesnakes, part of the HOPKINSON medical practice involved the treatment of snake bites. IRVINE recalls their back yard became a depository for live snakes to be used as sources of venom for used in snakebite serum.
"People brought them in, they'd get $5 (per snake)… and my cousin, John, would collect the box and fly it down" to serum producers in Toronto.
Both her parents were coroners and IRVINE recalls them studying materials on unusual causes of death.
"It was an unusual upbringing, I'll tell you that," IRVINE said.
Dr. HOPKINSON moved from Lion's head to Owen Sound to be closer to family. In Owen Sound, she was an active member of the University Women's Club and a recently formed Unitarian Church group.
Dr. HOPKINSON was also a lifelong music lover and pianist who faithfully attended concerts of the Georgian Bay Symphony. She was a passionate amateur photographer, dabbled in watercolour painting and loved exploring nature. She donated her body to the University of Western Ontario for medical research.
She maintained an active interest in politics and international affairs.
"She read two or three newspapers every day," IRVINE said. "Towards the end, the main thing was that she get her newspapers.
Born and raised in Hensall, Ontario, Dr.; HOPKINSON was among four children of Elizabeth THOMPSON/THOMSON/TOMPSON/TOMSON and Norman COOK. She is survived by three children and five grandchildren. She was the mother of Joan IRVINE of Big Bay, Mary HOPKINSON of Owen Sound and Bruce HOPKINSON of Lansdowne. She is also survived by a sister, Eleanor CORLETT of Shelburne and two brothers, Doug COOK of Hensell and Bob COOK of Grand Bend.

Woman dies in fire
Fire Marshal's office investigating blaze
By Jim ALGIE, Sun Times staff; Canadian Press
The Ontario Fire Marshal's office is investigating the cause of a house fire near Mount Forest that claimed the life of a 39-year-old Chatham, Ontario, woman.
Cindy TEBO was killed after she ran back inside her rented farmhouse to try to rescue her five-year-old grand_son T.J., who family friend Julio RAMIREZ said was visiting with his aunt.
RAMIREZ said T.J. was safely outside the house with his aunt when TEBO ran back up the stairs.
TEBO's common-law husband Bruce LAMB is in hospital for treatment of smoke inhalation.
It is believed the fire began in a guest bedroom in the home on Normanby Township Road 63, northwest of Mount Forest, West Grey Police Sgt. Rob THOMPSON/THOMSON/TOMPSON/TOMSON said in a statement issued Friday.
A child raised an alarm, which alerted other family members.
An atopsy performed Friday determined TEBO died of smoke inhalation and carbon monixide poisioning, a police news release said.
Firefighters from the North Wellington Fire Service, based in Mount Forest and Harriston, and from the West Grey service in Ayton responded to the alarm that came in about 8: 30 a.m. Thursday.
An Ontario Fire Marshal's investigator was at the scene Friday.
Police and fire marshal's investigators expect to study the fire scene for "several days," THOMPSON/THOMSON/TOMPSON/TOMSON's statement said.
Fire Chief Ron MacEACHERN of the North Wellington Fire Service said the building was "totally engulfed" when firefighters arrived.
MacEACHERN said he could not identify the victims of the fire.
The size of the fire and water supply problems at the rural location required a response from all three area fire departments, he said.

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.) Also survived by her sisters-in-law Dorothy THOMPSON/THOMSON/TOMPSON/TOMSON (Lee), Anne SCHEEL, Julie SCHEEL and by her brother-in-law Fred MERZ (Evelyn) and several nieces and nephews. Predeceased by her sisters Velma ROBBINS (Hap) and Millie WEYMOUTH (George,) her brother Allan KNOTT (Ann) and by her brothers-in-law John McGUGAN, John SCHEEL, Fritz SCHEEL (Peg) and Andrew SCHEEL. Friends may call at the Murphy Funeral Home, Delhi for visitation on Wednesday from 2: 00 to 4:00 and 7:00 to 9:00 p.m. A Funeral Service will be held in the Chapel on Thursday, March 2nd at 11: 00 a.m. with Pastor Larry LABATT officiating.

AYEARST, Mary Elizabeth (née HECKMAN)
73, of London (formerly of Saint Thomas) died at peace in the arms of her daughter on Thursday, March 9, of multiple myeloma. Born in Orange, California, she moved in infancy to Saskatchewan with her family after a frightening earthquake in California. Eventually they settled in Fingal, when her father joined the Canadian Air Force during the war. Mom had an independent and adventurous spirit and instilled the best of those qualities in her three children. She not only gave us our wings, but the courage to fly. A softie who carried spiders outside to freedom and couldn't bear to trap a cottage mouse, she could also move Heaven and Earth to stand up for her kids or the rights of others. Mom always cheered for the underdog -- with the notable exception of favourite golfer Tiger Woods -- and her great sense of style had her constantly redecorating the homes of Friends and family. Her creative and artistic talents found a natural outlet in pottery and works from her studio adorn homes across Ontario, as gifts and through sales at galleries and charity auctions. In later years she was also a travel guide, escorting tours of the exotic and the mundane and often accompanied by her dear sister June. She took groups to Europe and the U.S. but also slogged through day trips to baseball games and shopping malls. And, it remains a mystery how well she could lead a trip to Peru, Bolivia and Paraguay yet get hopelessly lost with her sister while driving to meet family in Florida. She was never afraid to learn new things and late in life became an Internet junkie, messaging family and Friends around the globe with letters and photos. She even came to own pirated music CDs, for an eclectic taste that ran from Lyle Lovett to B.B. King. Mom treasured summers at her Bogie's Beach cottage, especially the times watching her grandchildren at play. They grew up there in the same carefree way that her own kids did during their summers at her Mom and Dad's home in Indiana -- with tons of adventure and smothered in love. Mom was a stickler for loving us all equally, although in individual ways matched to our personalities. (At Christmas, the value of our presents would be exactly the same to the point of adding a trinket or two to balance things.) She was extremely proud of "how you kids turned out," as she would often say, pointing to Steve and his wonderful family, her cherished relationship with Liz and John's love sent continually from a thousand miles away. Mary is survived by her three children John (Flor-Anne), of Amethyst Harbour near Thunder Bay; Steve (Maura) and their children Josh, Jordan and Danielle, of Barrie; and Liz ROBB (Ted,) of London. Also surviving are brother Glen (Pete) HECKMAN and his wife Estella of Elkton, Florida; and several nieces, nephews and cousins. Cherished friends and soul mates Naomi GIBSON, Audrey THOMPSON/THOMSON/TOMPSON/TOMSON and Marianne FISHER also survive. Predeceased by her husband John (Pat) in 1982, parents Pete and Beryl HECKMAN, sister June FILLMORE in 2003 and brothers Robert and Jackie in infancy. Cremation has taken place and at Mom's request there will be no funeral service. A visitation to celebrate Mary's life, will be held Saturday, March 18, from 1 to 4 p.m. at Westview Funeral Chapel, 709 Wonderland Rd. N., in London. Mom was very grateful to Liz's employer, a registered charitable organization, for allowing her the flexibility to address Mom's needs during the lengthy illness. In recognition of that and in lieu of flowers, we would be grateful for donations made to: Hutton House Foundation, 654 Wonderland Rd. North, London N6H 3E5. Tax receipts will be issued. Aunt June will be waiting in Heaven to guide her on their next adventure -- but first Mom will probably want to redecorate the place. Rest in peace, dear heart.

CHESHIRE, Shirley Amelia (née THOMPSON/THOMSON/TOMPSON/TOMSON)
With sadness at her passing and joy in her life, the family of Shirley Amelia CHESHIRE announce her death, after a long illness, on Friday, March 10, 2006. Shirley was born on June 20, 1918 in Oil Springs, Ontario, the fourth child of George THOMPSON/THOMSON/TOMPSON/TOMSON and Margaret WILLIAMS. She was predeceased by her older siblings, Russell (d.1909) and Florence LIMON (Archie) and is survived by her older brother, Kemp THOMPSON/THOMSON/TOMPSON/TOMSON (Joan) of Kitchener. In 1944, Shirley married John Robertson CHESHIRE of Wiarton, Ontario, then a lieutenant. Their loving partnership of 62 years gave great joy to them, their family and Friends. John gives thanks for the life of his dear wife. Shirley was a loving and proud mother to Robert and his wife, Rosamund DA GAMA, and to Pamela and her husband, Jim GALLAGHER. She was a doting grandma to Robert's children, Katie and David, and to Pamela's children, Kevin and Shannon. She is remembered with sweet affection by many nieces and nephews and a great circle of Friends. Shirley's parents gave her a bright and wise mind, a loving nature, the gift of music, a belief in hard work, deep Christian values, a commitment to community service, strong Canadian patriotism, pride in her Scots and Welsh roots, and the love of a good party! She never let heart problems, contracted at the age of five, get in the way of an active purpose-filled life. When she and John met, she was already the acting manager of a trust company branch. Her management and financial skills assisted her as she served in many positions notably as President, Municipal Chapter of Toronto and as Imperial Order of the Daughters of the Empire National Treasurer. In Imperial Order of the Daughters of the Empire, Shirley co-initiated annual book awards for children, encouraged projects with Canada's First Nations, and children's health care. She served on a number of boards, including the Children's Centre, North York General Hospital. In the mid-70s, John's firm, PPG Canada, nominated her the firm's citizen of the year. Chosen, she was honoured in Pittsburgh and threw the first pitch at a Pirates game. Each year an award is presented in Shirley's name at the Kiwanis Music Festival, Toronto; generously she contributed family antiques to the national museum in Oil Springs, Ontario. Over time, Shirley and John lived in Debert, Nova Scotia, Moncton, London and Toronto, but a constant in their lives was summers at their cottage at Oliphant, Ontario. Interment of Shirley's ashes will take place nearby, in Wiarton's Bayview Cemetery, this summer. Friends may call at the Turner and Porter Butler Chapter, 4933 Dundas Street West, Etobicoke (between Kipling and Islington Aves.) from 2-4 p.m., and from 7-9 p.m. on Tuesday, March 14. A celebration of Shirley's life will be held at Humber Valley United Church, 76 Anglesey Blvd., on Wednesday, March 15 at 11 a.m. Light refreshments will be served at the church, after the service. In lieu of flowers, gifts for work with Canadian youth may be entrusted to The National Chapter of Canada Imperial Order of the Daughters of the Empire, 40 Orchard View Blvd, Suite 254, Toronto, Ontario, M4R 1B9

Pearl PALMASON, Musician (1915-2006)
Daughter of Icelandic immigrants took childhood lessons from her brother, Sandra MARTIN writes. Later, she broke gender barriers to become one of Canada's first female solo violinists and a Toronto Symphony Orchestra concertmaster
By Sandra MARTIN, Page S7
This is a story about two women and a violin. In 2003, Judy KANG needed an instrument worthy of her prodigious talents. Pearl PALMASON, a trailblazing musician who broke gender barriers at the Toronto Symphony Orchestra back in the 1940s, could no longer play her precious 1747 Gagliano violin to her own demanding standards. She agreed to lend it to the Canada Council so that younger fingers could make it sing.
"I've always wanted a warm, dark, deep quality in a violin," Ms. KANG, 26, said this week. She loved the sound of the Gagliano and the way it made her feel when she was playing it. "It made me think I could really push my limits."
Ms. PALMASON went to the Glenn Gould Studio in Toronto to hear Ms. KANG play during a competition and to watch the bow being passed from one dedicated player to another. But Ms. KANG was far from the only female musician to be touched by Ms. PALMASON through her long career as a violinist.
"I saw her when I was seven years old at Maple Leaf Gardens at a concert with Fritz Kreisel as the soloist," said violinist Andrea HANSEN. "I couldn't take my eyes off this redhead -- this beautiful regal person -- sitting there in a flowing black gown playing the violin with the Toronto Symphony. I was just smitten."
It was 1947 and Ms. HANSEN, who had already been playing the violin for four years, knew what she wanted to do for a career. Nearly 30 years later, the two women became neighbours, Friends and colleagues in the Toronto Symphony Orchestra. "We were the only two Scandinavian ones in the orchestra," said Ms. HANSEN who is of Finnish descent. "I was even more in awe then because of the kind of person she was. She opened the door for the rest of us."
Pearl PALMASON was born during the First World War in Winnipeg. She was the third of four children of Icelandic immigrants Sveinn and Growa PALMASON (née SVEINNSDOTTIR.) Her architect father prospered in construction, but the Depression wiped him out financially and the family moved to a farm.
No matter how stretched they were, the PALMASONs always found money for violin lessons for their eldest son Palmi, who was six years older than Pearl. He studied with the violin builder and teacher Olafur Thorsteinsson in Husavick, Manitoba, and then with John Waterhouse in Winnipeg before becoming a member of the Winnipeg Symphony Orchestra.
Palmi would walk five miles home from his lessons and then teach everything he had learned to his little sister Pearl. From the time she was nine years old, she was officially her brother's student, acquiring both her Associate, Toronto Conservatory of Music and Licentiate, Royal Schools of Music qualifications and winning four medals from the Toronto Conservatory of Music for having the highest examination marks in the country.
They both performed at the Manitoba Music Competition Festival in Winnipeg and played with what would later be called the Winnipeg Symphony Orchestra.
"My uncle Palmi would perform very respectably and get high marks, but never win, and Pearl always won in her class, and she would win overall," said her niece Valerie THOMPSON/THOMSON/TOMPSON/TOMSON. She was awarded both the Rose Bowl and an Aikens Memorial Trophy and won a scholarship at age 18 to study for three years with Elie SPIVAK, concertmaster of the Toronto Symphony Orchestra and a teacher at the Royal Conservatory of Music.
In the late 1930s she went to England to study with Carl Flesch, the Hungarian-born violinist and also played solo concerts in Iceland in 1938 and in London. Years later she described Mr. Flesch as "a genius with the violin but not in his practical life." She also complained that he "had pupils from all over the world and he wiped the floor with every one of them."
She returned to Toronto when the Second World War broke out and studied briefly with Kathleen PARLOW, before moving to New York to be instructed by Demetrious Dounis. She found him secretive and mysterious. "You went in one door and out through another," she remembered. Apparently, concert masters studied privately with him and didn't want anybody to know so "it was very hush-hush."
In 1941, she left New York and joined the Toronto Symphony Orchestra at $25 a week for a five-month season. "The burning question," she said later, "was how to survive the other seven months of the year and pay the rent." Even so, she managed to find the money to buy a violin made in 1666, that had previously been owned by violinist Alexander Chuhaldin, and was thought (incorrectly) to be a Stradivarius.
Ms. PALMASON was married in the 1940s, after she joined the Toronto Symphony Orchestra, and supported her husband who lived in New York and studied with her former teacher, Dr. Dounis. By all accounts, the marriage was disastrous and quickly ended. On September 19, 1948, she performed a solo recital at the Town Hall in New York. "A metropolitan debut of promise," concluded the Musical Courier.
She considered pursuing a career as a concert violinist, but decided against it, partly because, as she said later, "you have to be absolutely great to be a concert performer and I knew I wasn't." There was another reason: the loneliness of the long-distance concert circuit. "I wouldn't have all this -- my home, my possessions and my Friends around me."
Essentially, Ms. PALMASON chose career over marriage in an era when it was extremely difficult to have both. "In those days, what happened to women violin soloists was that they got married and had children. Their career was put on hold for a while and then they tried to make a comeback, but it was never the same," she said in an interview in the 1950s.
Instead, she built a life around music, travel, a huge circle of Friends and her sister Ruby's children. "When my mother died, Pearl made the announcement that she now had three children," said her niece Valerie THOMPSON/THOMSON/TOMPSON/TOMSON. "We were all past the age of majority, but she said she was adopting us."
By the mid 1950s, she was one of eight women playing with the Toronto Symphony Orchestra and was the first female to serve as assistant concert master and to slip into the senior role when her male colleague Hyman GOODMAN was unavailable. From 1960 to 1962, she played principal second violin. She also played with the Canadian Broadcasting Corporation Symphony (after having confronted the conductor about his male-only hiring policy), the Singing Stars Orchestra, the Hart House Orchestra and the York Concert Society group.
An article by Florence SCHILL in The Globe and Mail in October of 1954, under the tag "Earning a Living," focused on Ms. PALMASON. The column began by quoting Sir Thomas Beecham (1879-1961). Apparently, the famous British conductor liked to explain the paucity of women in his orchestra by saying: "If they're pretty, they bother the men; if they aren't, they bother me."
Jack ELTON, manager of the Toronto Symphony Orchestra, denied there was discrimination against women. "We have never said: Let's not take her because she's a woman -- especially if they look like Pearl." And she was definitely a looker, with flaming red hair, usually called Titian in newspaper clippings from the era, striking blue eyes and luscious red lips.
In 1960, she bought the Gennaro Gagliano violin with the rich velvet sound for $3,500 (U.S.) -- about the price of a new car at the time, according to violin-maker and restorer Ric HEINL of the Toronto firm George Heinl and Co. It was made in Naples, Italy, in 1747 by Gennaro Gagliano, who was arguably the best in a large family of expert violin-makers.
A salesman for the Rembrandt Wurlitzer company in New York brought the violin to Toronto to show to a potential client, who declined to purchase it. Ms. PALMASON fell in love with it "at first play" and insisted the instrument wasn't going back, according to Mr. HEINL. The violin is now insured for $220,000.
After her farewell concert in front of 10,000 people at Ontario Place in August of 1981, she told The Globe that she had "spent more of my life at Massey Hall than at home." Although she had reached retirement age, she had no intention of putting her violin away. She played with the Canadian Opera Company orchestra from 1981 to 1985, and continued to teach privately, play with chamber groups, give recitals with her string group. In 1987 she became concertmaster of the Oakville Symphony Orchestra.
Ms. PALMASON lived in a spacious home in North Toronto until the mid-to-late 1990s when she moved into a large retirement condominium with her Boesendorfer piano and her beloved violins. She continued to have "drinkie winkies" (Beefeater gin with a splash of tonic and one ice cube) with Friends and gave at least two concerts in her condo for her neighbours.
She practised every day, but after she broke her ankle in 2002, life became harder. After she agreed to lend her Gagliano to the Canada Council instrument bank, she played every day on her "second" violin. A year ago in January, Ms. KANG, who had been sending Ms. PALMASON letters regularly, paid the woman she calls "her angel" a visit. "She was very warm and very sweet," Ms. KANG said. "It was really moving to see her playing the violin," she said, and "inspiring to see somebody who loves music so much that she plays every day just to have it in her life."
Pearl PALMASON was born on October 2, 1915, in Winnipeg. She died in Toronto of heart failure on February 17, 2006, after having suffered a stroke in September. She was 90. She is survived by a niece, two nephews and their families.

WAY, Peggy (née FORD)
Died suddenly but peacefully March 1, 2006 at Northumberland Hills Hospital, Cobourg, Ontario. Peggy is survived by her loving son Graham ABRAHAM from her first marriage in 1946 to Lieutenant Colonel Reg ABRAHAM (d. 1962,) her daughter-in-law Wenda THOMPSON/THOMSON/TOMPSON/TOMSON and her two grand_sons Damian and Tristan ABRAHAM. She also leaves two step-daughters from her second marriage in 1966 to Colonel Gordon WAY (d. 1998,) Elizabeth MUNDELL and Margaret PAULISSEN, and two grandchildren Trevor and Wendy PAULISSEN. Peggy was born, the youngest of six children, in Wood Green, North London, England in 1915. During World War 2 she worked in The City of London during the day and every night as a volunteer fire watcher on the roofs of the bomb ravaged buildings of that city during the Blitz. (Probably as a result of this, there were few things that would subsequently faze her!) After the war, she moved to Canada with her first husband and fell in love with the country soon becoming a citizen while still managing to remain to all appearances quintessentially English. On the death of her husband and a brief stay back in her homeland, she returned to live in Ottawa with her second husband where they remained until his death in 1998. Peggy loved the outdoors and exercise. In fact, one of her greatest regrets was having to slow down when she broke her hip, at the age of 80, as a result of falling off her ten-speed bike while on vacation in Florida. After moving from Toronto, the last three years of her life were spent with Graham and Wenda, along with her two beloved cats Ben and Belle, in Port Hope, Ontario a town that she loved. Peggy survived most of her generation but she will be sorely missed by the generations that have followed. A Memorial Service will be held at the Allison Funeral Home, www.allisonfuneralhome.com 103 Mill Street North, Port Hope, Ontario, Sunday at 2: 30 p.m. Sleep well Mum.

CHESHIRE, Shirley Amelia (née THOMPSON/THOMSON/TOMPSON/TOMSON)
With sadness at her passing and joy in her life, the family of Shirley Amelia CHESHIRE announce her death, after a long illness, on Friday, March 10, 2006.

She was predeceased by her older siblings, Russell (d. 1909) and Florence LIMON (Archie) and is survived by her older brother, Kemp THOMPSON/THOMSON/TOMPSON/TOMSON (Joan) of Kitchener. In 1944, Shirley married John Robertson CHESHIRE of Wiarton, Ontario, then a lieutenant. Their loving partnership of 62 years gave great joy to them, their family and Friends. John gives thanks for the life of his dear wife. shirley was a loving and proud mother to Robert and his wife, Rosamund DA GAMA, and to Pamela and her husband, Jim GALLAGHER. She was a doting grandma to Robert's children, Katie and David, and to Pamela's children, Kevin and Shannon. She is remembered with sweet affection by many nieces and nephews and a great circle of Friends. Shirley's parents gave her a bright and wise mind, a loving nature, the gift of music, a belief in hard work, deep Christian values, a commitment to community service, strong Canadian patriotism, pride in her Scots and Welsh roots, and the love of a good party! She never let heart problems, contracted at the age of five, get in the way of an active purpose-filled life. When she and John met, she was already the acting manager of a trust company branch. Her management and financial skills assisted her as she served in many positions notably as President, Municipal Chapter of Toronto and as Imperial Order of the Daughters of the Empire National Treasurer. In Imperial Order of the Daughters of the Empire, Shirley co-initiated annual book awards for children, encouraged projects with Canada's First Nations, and children's health care. She served on a number of boards, including the Children's Centre, North York General Hospital. In the mid-70s, John's firm, PPG Canada, nominated her the firm's citizen of the year. Chosen, she was honoured in Pittsburgh and threw the first pitch at a Pirates game. Each year an award is presented in Shirley's name at the Kiwanis Music Festival, Toronto; generously she contributed family antiques to the national museum in Oil Springs, Ontario. Over time, Shirley and John lived in Debert, Nova Scotia, Moncton, London and Toronto, but a constant in their lives was summers at their cottage at Oliphant, Ontario.

Passed away peacefully at Grand River Hospital, Freeport Health Centre on Thursday, April 6, 2006. Loving wife of 48 years to Glen ARNOLD. Mother to Zoë (Mike,) Eve (Tim,) Gwyneth (Murray,) and David (Diana). Grandmother to Sarah, Laura, Eric, Katie, Emily, Angie, Ellen, Hannah and Grace. Sister of Mary CZERNA and Rose BRENNAND (Derrick.) Aunt of Robert, Jeremy, and Victoria. Will be remembered by great nieces Rose and Sophie, sister-in-law of Gwen (Ziggy) KIRCHMEYER and her family Janet (Clyde,) Kathy, and Andrew. Great Aunt of Robbie and Michael. Predeceased by her parents, Elizabeth Hannah (THOMPSON/THOMSON/TOMPSON/TOMSON) BARBER (1896-1994,) and Charles FitzRoy (Lord Southampton, 1867-1958, M.B.E. (Debrett's Peerage page 678) and daughter-in-law of the late Eva ARNOLD. Alice went to Harrogate Ladies College, 1940-1949, a private girl's school in Cumbria, England where she studied drama, piano, and violin. Alice immigrated to Canada in 1955 to join her sister, Mary, a speech therapist in Toronto. She met Glen, her future husband to be, at a Club in Toronto in a quiet game of 'knock up' (tennis, anyone?). Alice was part of a generation of women that we now identify as, 'Stay-At-Home Moms', and we became better people as the result of the examples she set in our home: her kindness, generosity and unconditional love. These are some of the qualities she has passed on to us and it is now our turn to live by these examples. Her great strength of character will sustain us in the times ahead. Alice's interests included tennis, music, crafts, and camping with the family, which she referred to fondly as her, 'wilderness experience'. Later, in her return to the work force in the early eighties, she became a member of the Breast Cancer Screening Study Team at Saint Michael's Hospital in Toronto. Years later, in a move to British Columbia, she became a member of the Quilters Guild of Kelowna and had her work exhibited in many of their shows. Friends and family are blessed with examples of her talent and we treasure these gifts she has left us with. Not for one minute will Alice allow us to forget her beautiful spirit and the unconditional love she gave everyone in her time with us! The Arnold family will receive relatives and Friends at the Henry Walser Funeral Home, 507 Frederick Street, Kitchener (519-7498467) from 11: 30 a.m. to 1:15 p.m. on Tuesday, April 11, 2006, followed by a celebration of Alice's life at 1: 30 p.m. in the Chapel of the Funeral Home. Cremation has taken place. As expressions of sympathy, donations to the Hopespring Cancer Support Centre would be appreciated by the family. (Cards available at the Funeral Home).

Trying to reconcile a man's life and death
Friends are wondering how a college student from a good family ended up shot dead by police, writes Anthony REINHART
By Anthony REINHART, Page A11
Toronto -- Until a couple of weeks ago, anyone who knew the real Shelton McKENZIE would have expected to find him out clubbing last night, toasting his 21st birthday on some Toronto dance floor in smooth urban attire and a fresh pair of Jordans.
Instead, his Friends dressed for a visitation yesterday at a funeral home in his hometown of Ajax, east of Toronto, to file past Mr. McKENZIE's coffin and wonder whether they really knew him at all.
Specifically, they've been wondering how Mr. McKENZIE -- who came from a middle-class suburban family, who worked as a produce clerk through high school, who had young women lining up for his ever-respectful attention, and who took police courses in college just last fall -- wound up shot dead by police this month.
It happened just before dawn on Thursday, April 13, near an upscale home in the Thornhill community north of Toronto, where the THOMPSON/THOMSON/TOMPSON/TOMSON family had just endured a home invasion robbery.
York Regional Police arrived as Mr. McKENZIE and another person fled in the THOMPSONs' pickup truck. Officers opened fire on the truck, killing Mr. McKENZIE. The second man ran off and holed up in another home and was arrested within hours.
Ontario's Special Investigations Unit, which probes deaths and injuries related to police, is still examining the killing of Mr. McKENZIE.
But York police have linked the two men to five home invasions in and around Toronto since late February, including the gunpoint robbery of Sherry COOPER, chief economist at BMO Nesbitt Burns, and her husband, Peter.
As she squinted through the murk of predawn to find two masked men standing in her bedroom, Ms. COOPER felt surprised, bewildered and terrified on the morning of March 13.
Police say Mr. McKENZIE was one of the two mud-splattered men standing before her and her husband. The pair had broken into the COOPERs' ravine-side home in Hogg's Hollow, an exclusive enclave in North Toronto.
They bound the couple with duct tape, ransacked the house and fled with cash, jewellery, computers and BlackBerrys.
Their masks, and the shock that gripped the COOPERs, made them all but impossible to identify.
"We refer to the 'old guy' and the 'young guy' when we speak to each other, or the 'big guy,' Ms. COOPER told The Globe and Mail, "and we're not even sure we're referring to the same people."
Ms. COOPER, 55, was also caught without her glasses or contact lenses. "I'm not blind without my glasses, but it was pleasingly fuzzy, believe me. I didn't particularly want to be 100-per-cent conscious."
She was conscious enough, however, to talk her way to some relief after one of the men, armed with a gun, pinned her to the bed.
"He said he wanted jewellery and I said, 'Let me show you… where it is,' Ms. COOPER said. "So, fortunately, that got us to stand up and walk in there" to where her valuables were stored.
The couple were led downstairs and taped to a pillar. One man stood guard, pointing a gun at them, the other combed the house, selecting items to fill his backpack and tossing others to the floor.
Asked whether either man seemed like a novice, or a junior partner, Ms. COOPER had this to say about the one who stood guard: "Until the very end I would have thought that he was more nervous, and that he wasn't as aggressive, he wasn't a leader," she said.
"However, at the end, I managed to get myself out of the tape, and it was that stand-guard guy that saw me. And then he grabbed me and, you know, pulled me up the steps and told me, now he's going to have to hurt me, now he's going to have to shoot me, and he threw me down on the floor and said he was going to have to shoot me.
"And it was the other one who said, 'Take her back downstairs.' So they just retaped us."
"There wasn't, like, a good cop and a bad cop; there wasn't a leader and a follower," she said. "They were brutal. They clearly hated us, just [because of] what we had."
But for the people who knew or encountered Shelton McKENZIE, nothing is very clear. No one -- from coaches and former co-workers to Friends and the police themselves -- has been able to reconcile the way he lived with the way he died.
"I really don't know how or why he became involved," Detective Sergeant Fred MOFFATT of York's holdup squad said, adding that police have seen more young people from trouble-free backgrounds jumping "right into doing robberies."
Sometimes the goal is to win acceptance from a gang. Others are dragged in by underworld creditors, such as drug dealers.
"I don't know if that's the case here, so I would never say that," Det. Sgt. MOFFATT said. "We're still investigating and still trying to figure out exactly where he comes from. But yeah, it's a mystery."
Mr. McKENZIE's parents, who have requested privacy from reporters, are "just blown away" by what happened, said Lance BROWN, their pastor at Refuge City Pentecostal Church in Ajax. "I knew Shelton. He was a great kid," Mr. BROWN said.
At the No Frills on Kingston Road in Pickering, Tony CORNACCHIA recalled how Mr. McKENZIE "always asked for as many hours as I could give him" in the produce department, where he was the most experienced part-timer, until he left the job a year ago. "I left him in charge quite a few times, on evenings and weekends."
Mr. CORNACCHIA remembered driving the young man home to his parents' relatively new house in west Ajax, where he lived with an older brother, a younger brother and a sister. He described the family as hard-working and strict, particularly the mother, who insisted that her son help pay his own way.
"It seemed like they were a very disciplined family," he said, and when he heard the news of Mr. McKENZIE's death, "I was surprised just like everyone else."
Ms. COOPER had trouble squaring the wholesome image of Mr. McKENZIE with the man who caused her to feel such terror that morning, a terror that she said has changed her life forever.
"It is inconceivable to me that some normal, 20-year-old, good kid finds himself just accidentally in this kind of situation," she said. "I have a son who's not much older than that and, honestly, I just can't even fathom how you get yourself in that situation unless you've been… involved with some real bad people for a while."
If that's the case, Shelton McKENZIE kept his secret life well hidden.
At J. Clarke Richardson Collegiate, where he graduated in 2004, basketball coaches Steve DAWSON and Mike McFETTERS stood in the gym last week, puzzled.
"Whatever happened, we didn't see it coming," said Mr. DAWSON, a middle-aged man who traded easy, good-natured jibes with the popular all-star nicknamed Springz for his jumping prowess.
Mr. McFETTERS said his star rebounder avoided situations that looked like trouble and could take a beating on the court without losing his cool.
"He wasn't a violent kid," he said, but acknowledged he'd seen Mr. McKENZIE just three times, for a total of about 20 minutes, in the two years since he left Richardson. The last time was just before Christmas, when the young man dropped by the school after his first semester in the police foundations program at Durham College in Oshawa.
Mr. McFETTERS said Mr. McKENZIE was conflicted over whether to continue his studies, citing the cost and the commute as challenges.
"If he wasn't sure what he wanted to do, he didn't want to go [back to college] until he could figure things out," the coach said.
With that, he asked Mr. McFETTERS about his wife and daughter, and congratulated him on the impending birth of a second child.
With his death, "there's just questions that I don't know if we're ever going to get the answers to now," the coach said.
Similar questions are circulating among Mr. McKENZIE's Friends, 236 of whom are linked to his profile on hi5.com, a Web gathering place. Since his death, many have posted photos and comments, written in the vernacular of on-line chat.
"i cant begin 2 understand y USA did wat USA did," wrote one. 'it wasnt ur thing… it wasnt like u. buh im not tryna hold nothing on u. Ire gota 4give u… even tho now ur gone 4ever."
Several young women claimed Mr. McKENZIE as their dream man, and gave accounts of long telephone conversations, nights out dancing, tender moments and hopes for a future together.
In an interview this week, Jennifer VIEIRA, 19, said Mr. McKENZIE's attractiveness was no mystery when she met him after the 2004 Caribana parade in downtown Toronto. He was not only well-dressed, but also a gentleman.
"He said, 'I'll call you in a couple of hours,' and he actually called me back later," she said. "He was coming off real. He wasn't being fake at all."
What was real and what was fake is sure to cross the minds of many at Mr. McKENZIE's funeral this morning, inside the Revivaltime Tabernacle in Pickering.
But inside the church and out, it seems, God only knows.

MacDONALD, Robert K. " Bob"
'The world has lost a tremendous human being, a loving friend and humanitarian' (S. Jukes, 2 May 2006.) Robert K. (Bob) MacDONALD died May 1 at the Joseph Brant Hospital in Burlington at the age of 78. A veteran Canadian broadcaster, 'Mr. Mac' was a retired Vice-President of Armadale Communications. An elementary school teacher by training, he began his broadcasting career in 1950 as an announcer at CFAR in Flin Flon, and later went on to work at CJGX Yorkton and CKCK Regina. At CKRC Winnipeg, he became General Manager, a position he subsequently held at CKOC Hamilton before being named as Vice-President at Armadale in 1988. During the course of his career, he discovered and trained many young men and women who achieved success in prominent positions across Canada. Bob was a member of the Canadian Association of Broadcaster's Half Century Club and a former president of the Central Canada Broadcaster's Association. He supported and held positions with several charitable organizations including the Arts Council and the United Way of Hamilton. He was a devoted husband to Margaret, cherished father to Sandra and Sara, and beloved 'Grampa' to Christopher. Bob was the 'little' brother of Max MacDONALD of Edmonton and of Glenn MacDONALD and Doreen MORISON, now deceased. He was a unique and special uncle to an extended network of nieces and nephews. Years ago, Bob had the opportunity to speak at length with Pierre Trudeau following a small gathering of broadcasters. Upon leaving Trudeau remarked, 'you are a very interesting man.' For family and Friends, this comment is so indicative of Bob's character and the fact that he never stopped learning, exploring, and helping others. His special humour, gentle nature and unique style will always be remembered with love by family and Friends. We wish to extend our deepest thanks to Gus and Anja SONDERMEYER, to a very caring and compassionate physician, Doctor Kathy THOMPSON/THOMSON/TOMPSON/TOMSON, and to 'Auntie Helen' (MacDONALD.)

THOMPSON/THOMSON/TOMPSON/TOMSON, Kenneth (1923-2006)
The gentle magnate
Billionaire Canadian visionary and arts patron is dead at 82
By Elizabeth CHURCH, Page A1
Kenneth THOMPSON/THOMSON/TOMPSON/TOMSON, the architect of a global media empire, a passionate art collector and animal lover and one of the world's wealthiest men, died yesterday at age 82.
The unassuming billionaire had a keen eye for a deal and he used it to transform his father Roy's far-flung business empire into Thomson Corp., a focused publisher of electronic information, worth about $30-billion. The THOMPSON/THOMSON/TOMPSON/TOMSON family also kept a private interest in traditional media through their part ownership in Bell Globemedia, which includes the CTV network and The Globe and Mail.
Outside the business world, Mr. THOMPSON/THOMSON/TOMPSON/TOMSON made his mark as one of the country's greatest benefactors to the arts world. In 2002, he announced he would hand over his beloved collection of more than 2,000 works to the Art Gallery of Ontario, along with $70-million in cash to fund future operations and toward a massive $200-million renovation and expansion of the gallery by architect Frank Gehry.
Those close to him said yesterday one of the tragedies of his death is that he will not be there to see the opening of the new galleries that he influenced so profoundly through his gift.
"Our dream was to cut the ribbon together and it's not going to happen," Art Gallery of Ontario director Matthew TEITELBAUM said yesterday.
Mr. THOMPSON/THOMSON/TOMPSON/TOMSON collapsed at his downtown Toronto office yesterday morning from a fatal heart attack, after arriving early, as was his habit. His death occurred just one day before he and his wife, Marilyn, were to celebrate their 50th wedding anniversary. It also followed a weekend that Mr. THOMPSON/THOMSON/TOMPSON/TOMSON spent with his three children -- sons David and Peter and daughter, Taylor.
"We will miss his support and companionship terribly, said David THOMPSON/THOMSON/TOMPSON/TOMSON, who in 2002 succeeded his father as the chairman of Thomson Corp.
"All of my grandfather's family are deeply grateful to my father for his wise stewardship of our family interests for more than 30 years. More importantly he was a gentle and kind man who impressed everyone with whom he came in contact. He was much loved."
Others remembered a gentle man who always knocked before entering an office and chatted with those who delivered his Globe and Mail in the pre-dawn hours.
He paid special visits to abused pets in the pound. He never assumed his enormous wealth entitled him to wield inordinate power, they said.
"He never felt the need to express himself above the crowd," said Geoffrey BEATTIE, president of Woodbridge Co. Ltd., the THOMPSON/THOMSON/TOMPSON/TOMSON family's private company. "I've never met a person ever who could make you feel so good about yourself."
Prime Minister Stephen Harper paid tribute to Mr. THOMPSON/THOMSON/TOMPSON/TOMSON and his family for their significant cultural gifts as well as their commitment to "quality journalism and the rights of an informed public."
"Mr. THOMPSON/THOMSON/TOMPSON/TOMSON was one of Canada's most successful businessmen and combined his financial acumen with his commitment to serve both his country and his community," he said.
Said Ted Rogers, chief executive officer of Rogers Communications Inc.: "Ken THOMPSON/THOMSON/TOMPSON/TOMSON was a friend, one of the greatest business men in the world, an art collector of unimaginable proportions. He was a visionary and had the leadership skills to implement substantial change of direction for Thomson Corp."
Mr. THOMPSON/THOMSON/TOMPSON/TOMSON was born in 1923 in Toronto and lived most of his childhood in Timmins, in Northern Ontario.
He leaves behind a company much different from the one he took over 30 years ago on the death of his father, newspaper magnate Roy, the First Lord Thomson of Fleet. In the mid-1970s the THOMPSON/THOMSON/TOMPSON/TOMSON organization was a conglomerate, with a hodge-podge collection of newspapers, North Sea oil and travel agencies.
Mr. THOMPSON/THOMSON/TOMPSON/TOMSON concentrated the company's holdings in North America and after venturing into retail briefly with an investment in Hudson Bay Co., sharpened its focus to electronic publishing. Thomson Corp. is now a tightly focused electronic information group of global reach, with most of its sales coming from subscription-based electronic products and services in the legal, financial, educational, health-care and science fields.
Through it all, Mr. THOMPSON/THOMSON/TOMPSON/TOMSON gained a reputation as an astute deal maker who bought at the bottom and had the wits to get out at the top. His most recent deal was the reacquisition late last year by the THOMPSON/THOMSON/TOMPSON/TOMSON family of effective control of Bell Globemedia, including The Globe and Mail, and a new partnership with rival Torstar Corp.
John A. TORY, the lawyer and close family adviser for 50 years, said yesterday that Mr. THOMPSON/THOMSON/TOMPSON/TOMSON was always aware that he was the guardian of the fortune built by his father from a small radio station in Timmins to ownership of papers such as The Times of London. "He was always conscious of the legacy that he had inherited and he felt very deeply that with it came an obligation to build upon the foundation established by his father."
Ivan Fecan, president and chief executive officer of Bell Globemedia and head of CTV, said the way Mr. THOMPSON/THOMSON/TOMPSON/TOMSON led his life is a lesson for us all. "In business, in philanthropy, in life, Ken THOMPSON/THOMSON/TOMPSON/TOMSON led by example," he said. "He was a humble man who loved dogs, a media and business visionary, an art collector with incredible taste and a warm, loving family man."
BCE president and chief executive officer Michael Sabia singled out Mr. THOMPSON/THOMSON/TOMPSON/TOMSON's remarkable achievements. "In any country, in any field of endeavour, some people stand above the rest. For many years, Ken THOMPSON/THOMSON/TOMPSON/TOMSON stood as a giant in the business he loved so much and led so well."
Former prime minister Paul Martin remembered Mr. THOMPSON/THOMSON/TOMPSON/TOMSON's humble attitude. "Our fathers were good Friends and I consider myself truly fortunate to have known Ken," he said. "For a man who managed an international media empire, laid claim to a noble title and was one of the most successful businessmen in the world, Ken was astonishingly modest. He never sought the spotlight -- instead, everything Ken did, he did because he loved it.
Mr. THOMPSON/THOMSON/TOMPSON/TOMSON inherited his father's title, First Lord THOMPSON/THOMSON/TOMPSON/TOMSON of Fleet, but chose not to sit in the House of Lords.
Indeed, many stories of Mr. THOMPSON/THOMSON/TOMPSON/TOMSON's self-effacing attitude and his passion for art and animals emerged yesterday on the news of his death.
"When Ken looked at a work of art, or shared his views about what a work of art meant to him, his eyes sparkled," the Art Gallery of Ontario's Mr. TEITELBAUM remembered. "He caught you in his eye and talked from his heart."
Lynda Elmy, communications director with the Toronto Humane Society, said he was concerned about the welfare of animals. "He took a great interest in animals, especially dogs, and especially abandoned and abused dogs."
With his death, the THOMPSON/THOMSON/TOMPSON/TOMSON family must now build on his legacy. Roger MARTIN, a member of the Thomson board of directors and dean of University of Toronto's Rotman School of Management, said it is difficult to "take something great" and move it to the next level of growth. "Roy was a great man who built this medium thing, and Ken was a great man who built this big thing. I think David's got this opportunity to build something even more magnificent."
In any country, in any field of endeavour, some people stand above the rest. For many years, Ken THOMPSON/THOMSON/TOMPSON/TOMSON stood as a giant in the business he loved so much and led so well.' Michael Sabia, BCE president and chief executive officer

THOMPSON/THOMSON/TOMPSON/TOMSON o@ca.on.york_county.toronto.globe_and_mail 2006-06-13 published
A boss out of the movies
By Edward GREENSPON
Only once in my four years as editor-in-chief of The Globe and Mail did Ken THOMPSON/THOMSON/TOMPSON/TOMSON phone me to discuss an editorial position the paper had taken.
It was September, 2002, the 30th anniversary of Canada's hockey summit victory over the Soviet Union. Paul Henderson, the hero of game eight, had criticized his former teammate, Bobby Clarke, for the intentional slash he had administered to Soviet star Valery Kharlamov in game six. Our editorial writer noted that Mr. Kharlamov came back to play injured in the final game, demonstrating true courage and heroism.
The editorial ran on Saturday. Ken phoned Monday morning. He loved hockey, and he preferred his hockey clean. He wanted me to congratulate the editorial writer on what he considered a fine tribute to a great player who later died in a car accident. The next day, he phoned again. "I hate to bother you, Ed," he began, "but do you think it would be possible to get me an address for Valery Kharlamov's parents?"
I said I was sure we could, but why did he want it?
"Well, I'm going to have the editorial translated into Russian, and I'd like to send it to them so they know their son is fondly remembered in Canada as a great sportsman."
Talk about your great men. Ken was a class act. In an era of megalomaniacal media barons, his personal integrity -- as vast as his wealth -- was the bedrock on which the reputation of The Globe and Mail rested. As far as I could tell, he read every word of the paper, even having it delivered to him on holidays outside the country.
But he didn't believe in interfering; it was a matter of philosophy. As with his other businesses, he abided by the principle of hiring managers in whom he had confidence and allowing them to do their thing.
Of course, The Globe is a bit different from most businesses, in that its product is so public and so tied to the public interest. Of all his businesses, he told me, The Globe was the one that would draw the most comment.
Periodically, he passed on replies to letters and notes petitioning him to ensure that this cause or that would garner coverage, or complaining of a particular story. He was always unfailingly polite, but firm that such matters should be taken up with the editors. He once told someone demanding intervention that, seeing as he would never argue for his own interests, how could he justify advocating on behalf of somebody else?
That kind of response from your chairman and shareholder infuses a news organization with untold confidence to do its work properly.
It's not that he was without views. I once made a rare visit to his office and found him re-reading an article on a judicial issue, which he had carefully underlined. On another occasion, he gently criticized our treatment of obituaries. His analysis of the shortcoming was spot-on. He worked in newsrooms as a young man and I came to appreciate that he wasn't just a newspaper owner but a complete newspaper man. Thanks to his comments, we improved our obituaries page immeasurably.
Just last month, Ken sent me a note, saying he had jotted down some personal thoughts after the death of his great friend Steve STAVRO. He wondered if they might be appropriate for the paper's "I Remember" column. "The Globe's editorial decisions, I respect, are sacred and I would be the last to violate that, so please use absolute editorial discretion in either using the piece or tossing it in the basket. Either way, I will fully understand it."
It is a measure of one's true power, and grace, to exercise restraint in its use. Ken meant it when he said he would understand if I thought his piece did not work. He cared about the paper and respected all the men and women who put it out. He was unstintingly upbeat and supportive. And he loved a good laugh.
A couple of months after I became editor, he invited me to his office, ostensibly to select the painting from his collection that would grace The Globe's front page that Christmas, but more, I suspected, to take a fuller measure of his new editor.
He showed me around his office, replete with exquisite figurines and other pieces from his various collections. Ultimately, Ken, his wife, Marilyn, and I walked over to the nearby Simpsons tower to go through the art gallery.
It was a wonderful afternoon. As we went downstairs, Marilyn said: "Kenny, I parked downstairs. I think I'll just get the car and meet you at home." They kissed and she departed.
Then he and I walked along Queen Street back to his office, and I was struck by the fact that they didn't appear to have a chauffeur. "Do you drive yourselves?" I asked.
Slightly confounded, he looked down on me (he was several inches taller) for a moment. Then he broke into a big smile, smacked me across the back, and said: "Of course. I like to think I've still got it."
Whatever it was, Ken THOMPSON/THOMSON/TOMPSON/TOMSON had it. He was the kind of proprietor you expect to find in the movies. Except, for us, he was the genuine article.

THOMPSON/THOMSON/TOMPSON/TOMSON, Ken -- I Remember
By Pat SISSON, Page S11
Pat SISSON of Toronto also writes about Ken THOMPSON/THOMSON/TOMPSON/TOMSON.
I am another one of those people who had the pleasure of walking my dog in the same part of town as Mr. THOMPSON/THOMSON/TOMPSON/TOMSON did. One could always count on him to ask how your dogs were, or to bend down to share some of the love. He cherished his dogs and was eager to tell stories of their lives and adventures. He had been known to change business meetings in order to spend time with his "pack." To hear that he died with one of those treasured animals with him brings some comfort.
A couple of summers back, I was walking around the park with my nephew when we came on Mr. THOMPSON/THOMSON/TOMPSON/TOMSON. After having yet another wonderful talk about our pets, we went on our way. "That man is a billionaire," I told my nephew, at which point he replied: "Aunt Patty, you tell the best stories!"

THOMPSON/THOMSON/TOMPSON/TOMSON, Ken -- I Remember
By Bruce RUSK, Page S11
Neighbour Bruce RUSK also writes about Ken THOMPSON/THOMSON/TOMPSON/TOMSON.
Shortly after my partner, James, and I moved into our condo, we were outside watching our 16-year-old wire-haired dachshund sniffing around (walking any distance was too challenging for Lionel) when an elderly man walked by with two dogs. He stopped to inquire about Lionel and introduced himself as Ken. A week later, I was walking through Craigleigh Gardens and saw Ken talking to someone. Not wanting to interrupt, I walked past.
"Hey, you didn't say hello," he called out. I turned. "Sorry, Ken, I wasn't ignoring you deliberately." After that, James and I made a point of stopping to say hello to him and to chat briefly. Ken was genuinely sad when Lionel died, and obviously pleased to meet D'Arcy, the new puppy. Even if we were driving by, we would roll down the window and say "Hi, Ken. How are you?" "Fine," would come the response. "Thank you for stopping and saying hello."
He was Lord Thomson of Fleet and Northbridge and the richest man in Canada but, to others, he was Ken, a kind neighbour who just liked to say hello.

MASSEY, R. Bruce
Peacefully on Thursday, October 19, 2006, Bruce MASSEY passed away at home in Oakville, Ontario surrounded by his loving family. Beloved husband and best friend of Carol, father of Neill, Michelle, Suzanne (now deceased), Nancy and Samantha and grandfather to Melanie, Sydney, Bruce, Tyler, Julia, Dennis and Jay. Bruce was born at the Royal Victoria Hospital and spent the early years of his life in Toronto. As a young man, he moved to Montreal where he joined the Royal Montreal Regiment as a private recruit and retired as a Major. It was during this time he met and married Carol BEDARD and together they raised five children. Bruce's staunch commitment to his family and sheer determination allowed him to achieve a very successful business career. He began his career with Standard Electric and he progressed into more senior roles. His last position before starting his own business was as President of Lab-Volt Ltd. He left Lab-Volt to start an executive search practice in Montreal, Massey Charbonneau. As his business flourished he opened an office in Toronto with international linkages. Throughout his career Bruce received many accolades and notoriety. His success can be attributed to his honesty, ethics and high standards. In addition, to his business career Bruce was active in athletics. In his early years he played semi professional football, he was an avid skier, played squash but his true passion was sailing. He was a member of the Royal St. Lawrence Yacht Club in Montreal as well as the Oakville Yacht Squadron and Oakville Club. He raced actively for many years as he loved not only the sport but the thrill of competition. Bruce achieved a full and well rounded life. He touched many people's lives and his dedication to his family and Friends will be sorely missed. Bruce would like to thank Victorian Order of Nurses Shirly DOWD for her wonderful professional assistance and empathy during his last difficult days. Thank you Shirly. Also Reverend Doctor Michael THOMPSON/THOMSON/TOMPSON/TOMSON, Director of Saint_Jude's for doing that which he does best, sharing his love of words and demonstrating his skills as a listener for Bruce. Thank you Michael. Lastly, Doctor Tom ESTAL of Oakville for giving his enormous professional knowledge, his Friendship and his huge assistance to our family during this trying time. Thank you so much Tom. A Memorial Service to take place at Saint_Jude's Anglican Church, 160 William Street, Oakville, Ontario on Monday, October 23, 2006 at 2: 00 p.m. In lieu of flowers, donations to your charity of choice are greatly appreciated.

ROBINOW, Carl Franz, M.D., D.Sc. honoris causa, F.R.S.C.
Professor Emeritus, Faculty of Medicine, University of Western Ontario.
Born, Hamburg, Germany, April 10, 1909, eldest son of Franz and Marianna ROBINOW. Died, London, Ontario, October 20, 2006. Carl received an M.D. from Hamburg in 1934, and then pursued research in Microbiology, first in Copenhagen, Denmark, later moving on to London, England. There he met and married his beloved wife, Rosie DERENBURG, with whom he shared an unusually happy marriage until her death in 1972. Following World War 2, they lived for two years in the United States. In 1949, Carl accepted the post of Assistant Professor of Microbiology, Faculty of Medicine, University of Western Ontario. He retired as Professor Emeritus in 1974. He received a Doctorate of Science, honoris causa, from the University of Western Ontario, in 1978. In the course of his remarkably long academic career, he received numerous academic awards. In 1957, he was elected a Fellow of the Royal Society of Canada. Following his retirement, he continued to be active in teaching and in research. He published his last article at the age of 92. He was amused and very proud of the fact that the span of his long life permitted him to view Halley's Comet twice, first in 1911 and again on its return in 1986. He is mourned by his sons, John Anthony ROBINOW and Doctor Richard Oliver ROBINOW, daughter-in-law, Gwen THOMPSON/THOMSON/TOMPSON/TOMSON, C.M., grandchildren, Richard Alexander and Elizabeth Louise ROBINOW, also by his favourite niece, Susan MADIGAN, daughter of his twin brother, Richard Franz ROBINOW, and her family. Carl's nature was a blend of the scientific and the romantic, enlivened by a puckish sense of humour.

THOMPSON/THOMSON/TOMPSON/TOMSON, R.A. Fraser
R.A. Fraser THOMPSON/THOMSON/TOMPSON/TOMSON died suddenly in Ajijic, Mexico on December 12, 2006 in his 80th year. Fraser was born January 3, 1927 in St. Catharines, Ontario, Canada and lived in that city all of his life. He was a longtime owner of the Hotel Henley in St. Catharines and a long time member of the St. Catharines Club. Fraser was a member of the Masons for over 50 years. For a time, he was also a member of the Board of Directors of Ontario Place. Fraser was involved in provincial and national politics for many years. Fraser was the beloved husband of Ruth, and father of Robert, Duff, John, Drew and Patrick. He was the much-loved "Papa" of Bobby, Amy, Graham, Kyle, Paul and Brandi-Leigh and uncle of Randy, Jessica, Pat, Greg, Donny and Jamie. He is survived by his sister, Pat, and Joe DUNK and brother Donny THOMPSON/THOMSON/TOMPSON/TOMSON. His many cousins in Scotland and his many Friends around the world will sorely miss him. For the past 10 years Fraser and his wife Ruth have wintered in Mexico. Fraser was a superb event organizer and many would say the lifeblood of the Birds of Paradise Condominium Association. He was a kind man, generous to a fault and loved by everyone who knew him. Cremation has taken place in Mexico.

WOODSIDE, Peggy (formerly DEVITT, née THOMPSON/THOMSON/TOMPSON/TOMSON)
Mother died on December 16, 2006 at Toronto East General Hospital. Peggy was born the fourth of four children in Toronto on August 13, 1921, to most beloved parents the Reverend and Mrs. B.W. THOMPSON/THOMSON/TOMPSON/TOMSON (Eva LOW/LOWE/LOUGH of Renfrew, Ontario.) Secondary schooling occurred in Kingston, Ontario, after which she graduated from Queen's University in 1943. In 1944, she attended the College of Education in Toronto, later teaching at Renfrew Collegiate, South Collegiate in London, Ontario, and Western Technical School in Toronto. From 1964 to 1986, Peggy taught at Leaside High School (Toronto). After her marriage to Bill DEVITT in 1947, they moved to Leaside where they raised their three children, Bill, Patricia (Pat) and Peggy-Anne. Immediately they became active in the community, at school, church and in sporting events. Having lived in Leaside for over fifty years, Peggy cherished her life-long Friends and neighbours. She was grateful for the warmth of their affection, in particular the staff and students at Leaside High School, her very close Friends at Northlea United Church, where she was an active member. In 1964, Peggy faced a sudden challenge, her husband died at age 45. Mother's indomitable spirit, and courage, her work ethic and the dedication to her loving children remained steadfast. Peggy resumed her teaching career at Leaside High School in 1964. She had many Friends and a wide range of interests such as The Book Club, music, theatre and her secret passion for sports and athletics scarcely ever missing a game on television. Much of the family socializing over the years occurred at the cottage on Danforth Lake, Quebec where her children and grandchildren have such fun and good times. In 1994, Peggy married Caryle WOODSIDE, a former Queen's University friend, who died suddenly in 1997. She is predeceased by her two husbands, two brothers, sister Evelina "Ev" (1985) and her daughter Patricia (1987).

THOMPSON/THOMSON/TOMPSON/TOMSON, Vera Elsie (née RADCLIFF)
(July 10, 1915-December 19, 2006)
Vera died peacefully after a brief stay in hospital. She was born in Regina and lived in Moose Jaw before moving with her parents to Vancouver in 1927. Vera was predeceased by her husband Callum THOMPSON/THOMSON/TOMPSON/TOMSON, parents Charles and Elsie as well as brothers George and Lorne. At 17 she received her A.T.C.M. from the Toronto Conservatory of Music, attaining the highest marks in Canada. Her University of British Columbia years are deeply etched in her life particularly her activities with the Music Society which continued long after graduation. Vera chose to express her gifts through teaching, conducting, and mentoring students. In 1995, her last formal piano student passed through her doors, some 60 years after the first. In one sense, Vera's death marks the end of a line. But through the years of sharing music, humour, love of Canada, and a passion for teaching, she touched the lives of countless people, all of whom now carry her spirit forward. Friends and former students will gather for a celebration of her life at Ryerson United Church, 2195 West 45th Avenue, Kerrisdale, 11 a.m., Saturday, December 30, 2006. Viewing from 10 a.m., burial to follow service. Flowers to be sent to the church. In lieu of flowers, donations in Vera's memory may be made to a charity of your choice.

SAWCHUK, Taras Michael
With love and sadness, his family records his passing, in the very early morning of Thursday, February 9, 2006, at Sudbury Regional Hospital, Laurentian Site, Sudbury, Ontario, from complications due to Parkinson's disease. Taras was born in Britannia Beach, British Columbia, July 18, 1926, to Ukrainian immigrant parents, Mitchal and Sophie (née DEMKIW.) The young family moved to Sudbury in the early 1930s. He attended Sudbury High School and continued his education in architectural design at Ryerson Polytechnical Institute, Toronto. In Toronto he also met his wife, Sonia (nee NICOLOFF,) and they returned to raise their three children in Sudbury where he initially pursued a career in architecture. In the 1960s he designed Chelmsford Valley District Composite School and went on to become a dedicated and much-loved teacher in the same school in the 1960s through to his retirement late 1980s. He returned to British Columbia in the 1990s, for love. He was an enthusiastic Vancouver folk orchestra member. He created regular opportunities for travel with family members and close Friends, to share his love of music, theatre and visual arts. He was a watercolour artist. He loved the Canadian outdoors and was an avid cross-country skier and tennis player. He moved once more to Sudbury in 2001 where, in spite of failing health, he is remembered by those who assisted him as a gentle, considerate man, who retained his exceptional social graces (and love of dancing) to the end. If desired, a donation to a humanitarian cause of your choice is an appropriate remembrance of his strong convictions and activism in that regard. Taras was also a life-long member of the Association of United Ukrainian Canadians and a founding member of the Sudbury Jubilee Folk Ensemble. He is survived by his loving partner, Margot THOMPSON/THOMSON/TOMPSON/TOMSON; his son, Jim; two daughters, Sonia and Taressa; three grandchildren, Justin, Mikaila and Wave his brother, Oryst; and nephew, Sergei. Shortly before his death, Taras learned he would be a great-grandfather. Alexander Tarino SAWCHUK is expected in March. Friends and family will be received at the Jackson and Barnard Funeral Home (233 Larch Street, Sudbury, Ontario, P3B 1M2, 1-800-461-0159), on Sunday, February 19, from 2 to 5 p.m. and 7 to 9 p.m. A Memorial Service to celebrate his life is planned for the spring in Sudbury.

CHESHIRE, Shirley Amelia (née THOMPSON/THOMSON/TOMPSON/TOMSON)
With sadness at her passing and joy in her life, the family of Shirley Amelia CHESHIRE announce her death, after a long illness, on Friday, March 10, 2006. Shirley was born on June 20, 1918 in Oil Springs, Ontario, the fourth child of George THOMPSON/THOMSON/TOMPSON/TOMSON and Margaret WILLIAMS. She was predeceased by her older siblings, Russell (d. 1909) and Florence LIMON (Archie) and is survived by her older brother, Kemp THOMPSON/THOMSON/TOMPSON/TOMSON (Joan) of Kitchener. In 1944, Shirley married John Robertson CHESHIRE of Wiarton, Ontario, then a lieutenant. Their loving partnership of 62 years gave great joy to them, their family and Friends. John gives thanks for the life of his dear wife. Shirley was a loving and proud mother to Robert and his wife, Rosamund DA GAMA, and to Pamela and her husband, Jim GALLAGHER. She was a doting grandma to Robert's children, Katie and David, and to Pamela's children, Kevin and Shannon. She is remembered with sweet affection by many nieces and nephews and a great circle of Friends. Shirley's parents gave her a bright and wise mind, a loving nature, the gift of music, a belief in hard work, deep Christian values, a commitment to community service, strong Canadian patriotism, pride in her Scots and Welsh roots, and the love of a good party! She never let heart problems, contracted at the age of five, get in the way of an active purpose-filled life. When she and John met, she was already the acting manager of a trust company branch. Her management and financial skills assisted her as she served in many positions notably as President, Municipal Chapter of Toronto and as Imperial Order of the Daughters of the Empire National Treasurer. In Imperial Order of the Daughters of the Empire, Shirley co-initiated annual book awards for children, encouraged projects with Canada's First Nations, and children's health care. She served on a number of boards, including the Children's Centre, North York General Hospital. In the mid-70s, John's firm, PPG Canada, nominated her the firm's citizen of the year. Chosen, she was honoured in Pittsburgh and threw the first pitch at a Pirates game. Each year an award is presented in Shirley's name at the Kiwanis Music Festival, Toronto; generously she contributed family antiques to the national museum in Oil Springs, Ontario. Over time, Shirley and John lived in Debert, Nova Scotia, Moncton, London and Toronto, but a constant in their lives was summers at their cottage at Oliphant, Ontario. Interment of Shirley's ashes will take place nearby, in Wiarton's Bayview Cemetery, this summer. Friends may call at the Turner and Porter Butler Chapel, 4933 Dundas Street West, Etobicoke (between Kipling and Islington Aves.) from 2-4 p.m. and from 7-9 p.m. on Tuesday, March 14.

Suspect was all-star dunker
By Gail SWAINSON and Madhavi Acharya-Tom YEW, Staff Reporters
His Friends called him Sprinz for his big-bounce slam dunk on the high school basketball court.
Shelton McKENZIE, a former hoops all-star, was shot dead by York Regional Police in Thornhill Thursday as he allegedly tried to mow them down with a stolen pickup while fleeing a botched home invasion.
Investigators say McKENZIE and Kevin HARRIS forced their way into the posh Thornhill home of Mike and Bev THOMPSON/THOMSON/TOMPSON/TOMSON early Thursday and roughed up the couple.
Their terrifying ordeal came to a quick end after their teenage son, who managed to hide from the invaders, called 911 to summon help.
Police rushed to the scene, only to confront two men as they attempted to drive off in the THOMPSONs' truck.
Officers fired at the vehicle, killing McKENZIE and bringing the bullet-riddled truck to a stop on the lawn of a home across the street, McKENZIE slumped over the seat.
HARRIS, who was slightly wounded by police gunfire before running off, was found 90 minutes later about a kilometre away.
While the victim has yet to be formally named by police, Friends and family positively identified him as McKENZIE.
Ontario's Special Investigations Unit, which probes all deaths involving police, has been called in.
HARRIS, 26, of Ajax, was charged Friday with five counts of armed robbery, 10 counts of forcible confinement and five counts of wearing a disguise.
The charges include the Thornhill incident and home invasion-style robberies over the last few months in Vaughan, Richmond Hill and Toronto.
McKENZIE had attended J. Clarke Richardson high school in Ajax in 2004 he finished second in the slam contest at the Lake Ontario Secondary School Association's all-star games.

Bob YUILL, 82: Frugal councillor had a fun side
By John GODDARD, Staff Reporter
Bob YUILL, long-time municipal councillor and sometime mischievous prankster, has died of heart failure at 82.
First elected in 1964, YUILL served on what was then the North York council and later on Metro council in an uninterrupted 24-year political career lasting until 1988.
Afterward, he served as chairman of the North York Parking Authority until retiring in 1993.
He died Wed., May 17, of heart failure at Georgian Manor in Penetanguishene. His funeral took place yesterday in Elmvale, near southern Georgian Bay.
"He loved politics, he loved the public," his youngest son Don said by phone on the weekend from Elmvale. "And he always considered that when you are the governor of the people's money you must be frugal with it, you must spend it wisely."
Tight money management was a theme throughout YUILL's career. At one Metro council budget debate, he donned a sailor's cap and said the municipality was spending tax dollars like drunken sailors. In his private life, he could be a prankster.
"When (former North York and later Toronto mayor) Mel LASTMAN bought his mansion on The Bridal Path, he threw a house-warming party," said Don YUILL, who served three terms on council after his father left politics.
"My dad brought over a live duck and threw it into the swimming pool. The thing crapped all over the place. They had to empty the pool out."
One 1984 Toronto Star photo shows Bob YUILL standing in the snow, bare-chested in a grass skirt with a pineapple in each hand, two days after Christmas, to promote a blood donor clinic.
"He was a wonderful, fun-loving man," former council office secretary Lynn THOMPSON/THOMSON/TOMPSON/TOMSON said by phone yesterday from the funeral reception.
"You never knew what he was going to wear. He would dress up in costumes -- a crazy apron, a crazy hat, just something different to brighten the day."
Robert Frederick Murray YUILL was born in Toronto in 1924. He learned frugality growing up during the Depression, his son said. YUILL served in the reserve forces during World War 2 and put himself through the University of Toronto, graduating in 1948 with a commerce degree.
As a businessman, he became successful as the creator of a business forms company that he ran for 25 years.
He leaves wife Dorothy, children Glen, Debra and Don, and four grandchildren.
