Sledder dies, alcohol a factor
Family mourns the loss of son who died while taking his snowmobile for an early Saturday morning ride. Searchers found the young man's body on Sunday afternoon.
By Michael GENNINGS, Page 1
A 22-Year-Old snowmobiler from Barrie was found dead by Friends on a trail near New Lowell Sunday afternoon.
Travis PELLETIER of 121 Grave Street, was found dead on the trail, near Sunnidale Sideroad 6/7, around 2 p.m.
The man's family said he had been missing since around 2 a.m. Saturday morning when he left to test his snow machine after making some adjustments.
Law enforcement officials said that the deceased missed a turn while going along the trail and struck a tree. The location was just 10 minutes from his parents' home, according to family members.
Mark KINNEY, a constable with the Huronia West Ontario Provincial Police, said that alcohol, excess speed and not wearing a helmet are "all considered to be factors" in the fatal crash.
KINNEY said that police were on the scene Sunday for almost four hours, trying to piece together what transpired. The Clearview Fire Department was also on hand for about the first 45 minutes, but other than that Chief Dave CARRUTHERS wasn't able to say what role his people played because he hadn't received a full report.
Bruce COOK, PELLETIER's step-father, talked by telephone with The Stayner Sun on Monday afternoon.
"Travis lived on the edge a bit," he said. "But deep down he was a goodhearted person who loved his mom."
PELLETIER had been arrested and convicted in the past for mischief under $5,000. He also was convicted for drug offences. On both occasions he was sentenced to jail time.
"He had some issues but he was trying to find his niche in life again," COOK said, adding he didn't want to discuss PELLETIER's troubled past. "Right now we are trying to celebrate his life."
PELLETIER was an aboriginal who belonged to the Serpent River First Nation in Cutler, Ontario, halfway between Sudbury and Sault Ste. Marie.
COOK said his stepson grew up in Orangeville and later New Lowell. He attended one year at Stayner Collegiate Institute but dropped out.
He said that PELLETIER, who he described as a handsome and slightly athletic man, enjoyed hockey as a youngster but that he abandoned the game in his early teens. Growing up he also liked to skateboard, COOK said.
He did not know if his stepson was working but he did note that PELLETIER was close with his girlfriend of seven years, Tamra LORBETSKIE.
He explained that PELLETIER came to visit his two siblings, Justin, 17, and Amanda, 15, on Friday night in New Lowell. He added that his stepson was drinking before venturing out on the three- or four-year-old snowmobile that he'd owned for only a few months. COOK said he wasn't sure if PELLETIER had much experience on snow machines.
COOK said that Justin and Amanda became alarmed around 10 a.m. Saturday morning when they realized that PELLETIER had not come back from the ride. Friends helped them search but it was not until Sunday that they discovered the man's body, approximately 10 feet off the trail, COOK said.
At one point during the search on Sunday morning COOK said his son Justin walked by the scene but did not see anything.
At the time PELLETIER went missing his stepfather and mother, Michelle, were visiting family on the reserve. COOK said they did not learn that PELLETIER was missing until getting home around noon on Sunday.
COOK said he learned the worst when two family Friends, Ryan McSWEEN and Paul FLANNERY, came up the driveway of their 21 Fawn Cres., home to say they found PELLETIER's body.
Throughout the ordeal COOK said his wife and children have been surrounded by family and Friends, something that has helped a great deal.
PELLETIER's body was taken to Barrie's Royal Victoria Hospital on Sunday for a post-mortem, scheduled to take place Monday afternoon, police said. Details of the autopsy were not available.
The Serpent River Band is handling the funeral arrangements, COOK noted, adding that PELLETIER will be buried on the reserve. He said the man's body was to be picked up yesterday. There will be no public service.
Still, COOK said that in memory of his stepson donations can be made to Stayner Collegiate Institute, where Amanda and Justin attend school or the Barrie Native Friendship Centre.
PELLETIER leaves behind his mother, siblings Justin, 17, Amanda Tammy, 34 and Dean 32.

RICHARDSON, Theresa Madeline (née LAPETINA)
Left this world with grace on March 13, 2006, surrounded by her family, after 91 glorious years. You cannot squeeze much more out of a life than that! Born in Toronto on February 19, 1915, she was predeceased by her wonderful husband, George, in 1982 and was never able to find a completely suitable replacement. Theresa is survived by her daughter Catharine (Paul CARROLL) and son George ("Stix") both of whom were with her to the end. Tragically, she was predeceased by her other son, Jimmy, in a car accident many years ago, a loss from which she never completely recovered. She loved, and was loved by, her grandchildren, Peter CARROLL (Suzanne LORD), Michael CARROLL (Vera), Ann Marie PIEKENBROCK (Zane) and Amanda RICHARDSON, as well as by her great grandchildren Devin, Jenna and Brendan (Carroll). Her former daughter-in-law, Angela CANNON, was with her at the end, having been a great help over the years. Grand dogs Robin (San Francisco), Rowdy (Vancouver) and Cosimo (Kingston) stand on guard for her. The last five years of her life would have been unbearable if it were not for the tireless assistance, compassion and humour of her dear friend, Merlin CAMERON, and all the staff and volunteers at Seven Oaks Home for the Aged, with special thanks also to Bev and Harold PARRINGTON for the "happy hours," especially on Fridays. Theresa, and her husband, were always immersed in music, classical and opera in particular, but also pop. George Sr.'s favourite line, with no apologies to Caruso or Beurling, was "if I could sing like that I wouldn't even talk to you!" Theresa also was a wiz on the piano, playing mostly by ear. This love of music transcended their life and is carried forward by her descendants. Even the dogs like music. A Memorial Mass was celebrated on March 22, 2006 at Saint Thomas More Catholic Church followed by interment with her parents, husband and son at Mount Hope Cemetery. At Theresa's request, attendance was limited to family and close Friends as she did not want a fuss. Anyone wishing to make a donation in memory of Theresa is invited to send it to Seven Oaks Home for the Aged, 9 Neilson Road, Toronto, Ontario M1E 5E1 where a fund has been established to continue the tradition of camaraderie among the residents, in which Theresa was an active participant.

LINDSAY, John W. Sr.
It is with deep sadness that we announce the sudden passing of John W. LINDSAY Sr. on May 5, 2006 due to complications from lung cancer. Born in Brooklyn, New York on June 2, 1926 to Harry Dayton LINDSAY and Ellen Arlene McBRINE, John grew up in Woodstock, New Brunswick. He served in the Canadian Army where a chance meeting with a fellow soldier changed his life. There he met an older man who advised him to become an engineer and see the world. He entered Dalhousie University with the Veterans' Program and there he met his lifelong love and partner, Marjorie A. LANGIN whom he married in 1948. He graduated with an Engineering Diploma in 1949 and went on to attend Nova Scotia Technical College where, in 1951, he earned a Bachelor of Civil Engineering. While studying engineering he was awarded the Bob Waters Award as most outstanding engineer and was President of his engineering class. John lived a fully balanced life. In business, he was a visionary developer and partner and mentor for small businesses and a corporate leader in large enterprises. In community life, he was a passionate volunteer, advisor and fund raiser. In his personal life, he was a devoted husband, father, grandfather, friend and lifelong fitness participant, sports fan and lover of music. As a developer his first project was the Strawberry Hill Street lands in North Halifax. He then built and leased the first multiple occupancy building in the Burnside Industrial Park and went on to develop millions of square feet of commercial buildings in the 'Park.' He also built and developed industrial buildings in Saint_John's, Newfoundland. His crowning achievement was the Purdy's Wharf office project on the waterfront of downtown Halifax. The leading office project in Atlantic Canada, it was technically innovative and remains the architectural signature of the Halifax skyline. John loved to partner and mentor in the creation of new businesses. These included steel and plastic piping, electrical motor rewinding, container repair, marine electric, mobile catering, pipe cleaning and repair, hazardous waste handling, equipment rentals, environmental, demolition earth work, tennis, squash and racquetball clubs, mathematical software, point of sale promotion and driving ranges. Beyond the success and failure of these businesses, he valued his ongoing relationship with each of his partner entrepreneurs. As a corporate leader he gave valued direction to national and regional companies. For a decade, he was chairman of Maritime Life following long service on the mortgage committee. He was a director of Canada Trust and its predecessor Canada Permanent Trust. He was a multi-decade director of Corporate Communications (now Colours), a director of Maritime Telephone and Telegraph (predecessor to Aliant) and was Chairman of the Halifax Shipyards. He was co-founder and Chairman of Atlantic Industries. John believed deeply in the Young Men's Christian Association of Greater Halifax/Dartmouth and the IWK Hospital and volunteered for both all of his adult life. At the Young Men's Christian Association, he was a volunteer, a member, an ambassador, a philanthropist and never ending steward. He joined the Board in the early 60s and remained as a Director until 1971. He actively participated in every Young Men's Christian Association fund raising campaign from 1970 to present. He served as a board member of the IWK Children's Hospital for more than ten years, leading major capital campaigns and was the co-leader of the amalgamation of the IWK and the Grace Hospital. John was also the founding chair of the IWK Foundation. In the 1970s he served on the Halifax Board of Trade including acting as Chairman in 1977. He also performed significant fund raising for his alma mater, Dalhousie University, and for a number of years served on its Board of Governors. John received recognition for his efforts in the community and in business. In 1984 he became the first recipient of the Halifax Young Men's Christian Association Red Triangle Award for outstanding community service. In 1991 he earned an Honourary Doctorate of Engineering from Technical University of Nova Scotia. He was named a Dalhousie Outstanding Alumnus and was also an honourary life member of the Association of Professional Engineers of Nova Scotia. He was inducted into the Nova Scotia Business Hall of Fame in 2004 and in 2005 was appointed to the Young Men's Christian Association Fellowship of Honour in a ceremony on Parliament Hill. In his personal life he made regular fitness an integral part of his day to day routine. He had played varsity football, rugby and boxing during his university years. He attended the Young Men's Christian Association advanced fitness class for three decades, leading the class each year on his birthday from age 60 to 72. He loved both the workout and the camaraderie. He and Marge enjoyed their lifelong couple Friends and he also enjoyed Boys Night Out, poker club and the Eager Beaver Investment club. John followed all sports avidly and was a true music lover. He did not prefer any particular genre, all he liked was 'good music' of all types. His deepest passions were reserved for his wife, his children and his grandchildren. He is survived by his wife Marjorie, son John (Anne CAMPBELL,) daughter Deborah (Luca ROTTA- LORIA,) grandchildren Jason, Andreas, Lauren, Alexander and Nicolas and step granddaughter Emma. The family would like to invite all those who wish to join in the celebration of his life to a reception on Monday, May 8 from 1 p.m. to 5 p.m. on the wharf at Purdy's Wharf.

Joe LORIMER, Air Canada Pilot (1916-2006)
A flying instructor at the outset of the Second World War, he never flew in combat but trained many others who would. He retired in 1976 with 21,676 commercial hours under his belt
By F.F. LANGAN, Special to The Globe and Mail, Page S11
Toronto -- Joe LORIMER was sure he was going overseas when he volunteered for the Royal Canadian Air Force in the week that Canada declared war on Germany in September of 1939. He was fit, eager and, most of all, an experienced pilot.
The Royal Canadian Air Force had other plans. Mr. LORIMER not only knew how to fly, he was also a flight instructor. That made him too valuable to send overseas, so he was put to work training pilots. He spent his entire working life flying, first as an instructor during the war, then as a captain for Trans-Canada Airlines and Air Canada, flying just about every type of aircraft they ever used, from 10-seat Lockheeds to 400-seat Boeing 747s.
Mr. LORIMER grew up in Kerrobert, Saskatchewan., a town about 100 kilometres west of Saskatoon, where his father was in the coal business and managed to prosper even in the 1930s when times were tough. There, young Joe led a storybook Prairie life, playing hockey, curling and singing in the church choir. He graduated from high school in 1933 and went to Saskatoon to learn to fly. He soon became an instructor at the Saskatoon Flying Club.
When war broke out, Canada and Britain had a pilot shortage. Mr. LORIMER, not surprisingly, possessed urgently required skills. On December 16, 1939, the British Commonwealth Air Training Plan came into being. Canada had lots of space and private airfields, so, in the words of the war propagandists, it became "the arsenal of democracy." Canada also carried the bulk of the cost, spending $1.5-billion compared with Britain's $54-million. By the end of the war, 131,553 aircrew had been through the system.
Mr. LORIMER started training pilots at his home base in Saskatoon. Eventually, though, he was also posted to Trenton, Ontario, and later Fort William (now Thunder Bay). His logbook shows he trained pilots in the Tiger Moth, a fairly primitive open-cockpit biplane that was easy to fly. Later, his own rating as an instructor moved up a few notches and he provided advanced training on twin-engine Oxfords and Avro Ansons.
In March of 1942, he became an employee of the Winnipeg Air Observer School, as its chief flying instructor. It was there that he met his first wife, Esther ROBERTSON, who had joined the Winnipeg Flying Club -- not to learn how to fly but because it was a place said to have good dances.
Although appreciated by their civilian bosses and by the war planners in Ottawa, most instructors hankered to see action, later suffering the postwar stigma of not having flown in combat. Perhaps reflecting that, a poem (author unknown) was found among Mr. LORIMER's papers. Called The Flying Instructors' Lament, it went, in part, like this:
What did you do in the war, daddy,
How did you help us to win?
Circuits and bumps and turns, laddy,
And how to get out of a spin.
Woe and alack and misery me!
I trundle around in the sky,
And instead of machine-gunning Nazis,
I'm teaching young hopefuls to fly.
We never get posted to fighters,
we just get a spell on the Link.
So it's circuits and bumps
from morning till noon,
and instrument flying till 10.
In late 1942, Mr. LORIMER was seconded from the air-training program and ordered to join Trans-Canada Airlines, which was then short of commercial pilots. For the rest of the war, he was stationed in Winnipeg, flying such aircraft as the Lockheed Lodestar. Less than two years later, he was made captain.
After the war, Mr. LORIMER went on loan to Thunder Bay Airlines for a short while, then returned to Trans-Canada Airlines to fly the four-engine DC-4, known as North Stars in Canada. These larger, pressurized planes carried about 60 passengers and could easily fly over mountains and through bad weather. They were followed by the more advanced Viscount turboprops and then the airline's first jet, the DC-8. In later years, Mr. LORIMER became a "check" pilot on the DC-8: His job was to check whether pilots trained on new equipment were good enough to fly them. "To become a check pilot required a combination of competency and seniority," recalled Jack Jones, who was once chief pilot for Air Canada. "Joe was a superb pilot."
Mr. LORIMER experienced one of his most harrowing experiences aboard a DC-8. On a training flight out of Vancouver, lightning knocked a basketball-sized hole in the plane's nose. But Mr. LORIMER managed to land safely.
In 1973, he was loaned to Air Jamaica and lived in Kingston, from where he plied routes back to Canada. He ended his working life flying jumbo jets, his favourite plane. His last run occurred on July 28, 1976, a Toronto-to-Vienna flight that included his entire family. By that time, he had logged 21,676 commercial flying hours.
For many years, Mr. LORIMER lived on a small horse farm in Langley, British Columbia He was a keen golfer and coached a junior curling team that won a national championship. One quirk of his personal life was that he held the longest standing continuous bank account with the Royal Bank. His father had opened it for him when he was born; on his birthday this year, the bank gave him a special commemorative plaque.
His wife died in 1969. In 1977, he married Avon VAN EXAN, the widow of an Air Canada pilot.
Joseph Earl LORIMER was born on July 17, 1916, in Kerrobert, Saskatchewan. He died of age-related causes in Mississauga, Ontario, on September 27, 2006. He was 90. He is survived by his wife, three daughters and three stepchildren.
