Mourning and mystery
How did a man from good family become linked to a biker crew?
By Tu Thanh HA, Page A3
Montreal -- He grew up in Côte St-Luc, a tidy, middle-class neighbourhood in Montreal. His father was a former senior partner in a boutique law firm that has handled the most prominent insolvency cases in Canada.
How did a young, Jewish man from a good family end up being labelled by police as a prospect for the Bandidos outlaw biker gang? How did he become one of the victims in a lurid gangland mass killing?
The unanswered questions were the subtext at the funeral yesterday of Jamie FLANZ, 37, one of eight men killed last weekend in Ontario's worst mass homicide. Police say all eight had ties to the Bandidos and were slain in an internal purge.
After yesterday's service, the few Friends who spoke to reporters struggled to reconcile their memories of Mr. FLANZ and his later years and death.
"For a boy from Côte St-Luc, it's mind-blowing," high-school friend Ramy Hus said.
"It doesn't correspond to the Jamie I knew," another former friend and schoolmate, Ilan Rose, said.
They and other mourners had come to Paperman and Sons, the funeral home of Montreal's Jewish community, where journalists usually come because the deceased is a celebrated figure such as Mordecai Richler or Irving Layton.
This was no biker funeral. There were no burly guys wearing vests with biker club colours. No motorcycle corteges. There was no visible police surveillance.
Instead, the 200 people who paid their respects included the likes of Liberal Senator Yoine Goldstein, a family friend and office colleague of Mr. FLANZ's father, Leonard.
Rabbi Chaim Steinmetz urged mourners to remember "the real Jamie, not the object of rumours and speculations."
Mr. FLANZ's younger brother, Robbie, also alluded to the recent headlines about his brother as a biker prospect who had been investigated by police.
"I challenge everyone to see who you were and not what you are presented to be," he said before mourners.
His sister Jennifer, in remarks read by Mr. Steinmetz, acknowledged that "before his death, [Mr. FLANZ] had spoken about turning his life."
Her remarks did not elaborate on what exactly Mr. FLANZ was turning away from recently, speaking rather about how charming and generous her brother had been.
Mr. Steinmetz noted how the timing of Mr. FLANZ's death meant that, for his family it will always be associated with Passover, which began last night.
"Unfortunately, at the seders for years to come, there'll be an empty chair for Jamie," Mr. Steinmetz said.
He recalled that Mr. FLANZ coached hockey and, as an ambulance medic, had saved lives, helping victims of accidents and heart attacks.
But Mr. FLANZ was no bookworm. He was a bulky, six-foot motorcycle aficionado with a shaved head, who combined his computer entrepreneurship with work as a nightclub bouncer.
In a description that he gave to an on-line dating site, he described himself as "a strong man who is very comfortable with who he is and who he has become."
His Friends suggest that his interest in motorcycles might have led him to mix with the wrong crowd, at the wrong time.
"I believe Jamie FLANZ just wanted to hang out. He was into bikes," Mr. Hus said.
Mr. FLANZ had no criminal record in Quebec. He had moved to Ontario nine years ago and was involved in computer technical support companies.
Four months ago, police searched Mr. FLANZ's house in Keswick, Ontario, as part of an investigation into the beating death of a crack addict. There was no indication, however, that he was the suspect.
