Art BREATHAT, June 5, 2003, Brother and Uncle.
Jimmy DAVIS, Nov 16, 2004, Hubby, Step Dad and Step Grandpa.
Gerald BREATHAT, June 8, 2006, Dad, Grandpa and Great Grandpa.
We planted the pansies again this year - yellow for you, Art, purple for
my Jimmy and added white this year for you, Dad. Our simple tribute to
the yesterdays we all enjoyed.
They say that memories are the windows to our past. The view from here,
although terribly lonely at times, is wonderfully filled with all the
little fragments of our lives together. So many things- a flock of geese
overhead, a good fishing story, a beautiful doe and her fawn, the flight
of a hummingbird, the laughter and joy of all the kids, grandkids and
great grandkids all together, the passing of a big rig traveling to
destinations unknown, and yes, even following a slow moving vehicle, all
bring a little smile to our hearts. I close my eyes and imagine the three
of you sharing a drink and a joke or two over a good game of cards. I
know you're watching over us- I feel it everyday. Just wanted to let you
know we all love you and miss you very much and always will -Forever and a day!
Peggy and Family

WAECHTER, Joseph
Joseph WAECHTER, of Hanover, passed away suddenly on Wednesday, November 21, 2007. He was 68.
Born in Brant Township, son of the late Andrew and Susan (nee HEHN) WAECHTER. Joseph was a member of the Old Timers Hockey League and a former member of the Bowling Mixed League. He was an avid Slow Pitch fan, both playing and watching.
Survived by his wife Karen (née KERR) WAECHTER, son Andrew (Carrie) WAECHTER of Saint Thomas, daughter Michelle (Gary) LANDSBOROUGH of Cambridge, grandchildren Dylan, Michael, Braedon and Zackery. Also survived by his brothers Lorne (Mary Lou) WAECHTER of Hanover, Ralph (Diane) WAECHTER of London, sisters Wilma REITZEL of Waterloo and Marjorie (Willard) LANG of Chepstow. He will be fondly remembered by several nieces and nephews. Predeceased by daughter-in-law Pauline WAECHTER, his brother Alfred WAECHTER and brother-in-law Ab REITZEL.
Visitation was held at Mighton Funeral Home, Hanover, on Friday from 2-4 p.m. and 7-9 p.m. with Vigil Rites at 8: 30 p.m. A Funeral Mass was held on Saturday, November 24, 2007 at 10: 30 a.m. at Holy Family Church, Hanover. Father Mervin PERERA officiated. Interment in Holy Family Cemetery, Hanover.
Memorial donations to the Heart and Stroke Foundation or Canadian Diabetes Association were appreciated as expressions of sympathy.
Joe was a husband, a father, a grandfather, a brother and a true friend to so many.
All of Joe’s 68 years were spent working hard. By the age of eight, Joe was working, baling hay, delivering newspapers and working at the bowling alley, in order to help provide for his mother. This work ethic continued all of his life.
Joe married his teenage sweetheart, Karen, in 1964 and spent the next 43 years with his loving wife. During those years he raised a family, ran his own business, saw his children (Andy and Michelle) get married, and welcomed a grand_son (Dylan) into the family. Joe’s daughter-in-law Pauline passed away in 2001. Andy has since remarried and Joe welcomed three new grand_sons (Michael, Braedon and Zackery) and a daughter-in-law (Carrie) into the family. Joe welcomed a new son-in-law into the family in 2000 (Gary) and they became close Friends.
Whenever Joe was needed by his family, he was there. Fixing up houses for his kids, always there to lend a hand, no matter what. His pleasures in life were simple and he enjoyed working around the house. He had recently retired and was finishing his basement now that he had the time.
He thoroughly enjoyed visiting with Friends over coffee at Tim Hortons.
In his younger days, Joe was dedicated to playing baseball and hockey, as well as snowmobiling with his wife and children.
Joe was a fervent believer in God and his Catholic faith. He enjoyed attending church in Walkerton when his wife wasn’t working. Like Jesus, Joe was a carpenter by trade and we are sure that he is building a house in heaven and waiting to welcome the rest of his family home.
Special thanks to Mighton Funeral Home for their kind treatment of the WAECHTER family. Thank you to Constable BREEN for adding respect and dignity to the funeral procession.

RICHMOND, Joy (née BREFF)
Peacefully, after months of a courageous fight against cancer, Joy, at the age of 76, passed away at home on Wednesday, October 10, 2007. She was predeceased by her parents, Joseph and Doris BREFF of New York. Joy was deeply adored by her husband Alec. She is survived by him and by two most loving daughters, Susan of London and Nina (Martin ROSS) of Toronto, as well as two granddaughters, Hannah and Isabel who truly loved their dear grandma. Also survived by sister, Gail, sister-in-law Judy, nieces Sharon ZANE, Caroline GOODMAN and Jill BRANDES and a special cousin, Marilyn RABIN and their families, and many other Friends who have been so kind always and particularly during her illness. Joy was born in New York and soon after graduating from University of Michigan, while on a holiday in the Adirondacks, met her husband to be and within 28 days of that meeting, they were married. Skeptical Friends were sure the match would not last. They were very wrong. It lasted over fifty two years. As soon as she was wed, Joy moved to London and spent the rest of her life enjoying that city. With her high spirits, sense of humanity and delightful sense of humor, she made many, many Friends. She did not sit still. Almost immediately after arriving in Canada, she became involved as an actress with the London Little Theatre and joined various clubs such as Hadassah of which she early became president. She was a devotee of theatre and musicals at London's Grand, and in Toronto, New York, Stratford, Niagara-on-the Lake and on. With Friends she loved playing bridge and Canasta. She also was most enthusiastic about travel and spent time in many countries of the world, both exotic and otherwise. Once her daughters had grown up and flown the coop, she went to work as a travel agent, one who insisted on getting the best for her loyal clients. On her behalf, her family wishes to express deep appreciation to all of the devoted and caring medical staff at Victoria Hospital on Commissioners. Sincere thanks as well to Medical Priorities, Victorian Order of Nurses and Community Care Access Centre. Donations, if any, would be much appreciated by the Canadian Cancer Society. Funeral Service will take place at Logan Funeral Home, 371 Dundas Street (between Waterloo and Colborne St.) on Sunday, October 14, 2007 at 3 p.m. and will be conducted by Rabbi Joel WITTSTEIN of Temple Israel. Interment Restmount Cemetery. Online condolences can be expressed at www.loganfh.ca A tree will be planted as a living memorial to Joy RICHMOND.

He represented 'Toronto the clean' - at least abroad
He talked trash with the Soviets and lunched with the Queen while dealing with garbage strikes and layoffs
By Noreen SHANAHAN, Special to The Globe and Mail, Page S9
Toronto -- The man who made green garbage bags fashionable for curbside pickup back in the 1960s was Toronto streets commissioner Harold ATYEO. His mandate also included snow removal and the earliest attempts at recycling - for instance, "bundle up for Wednesday" newspaper pickup. According to former mayor David CROMBIE, who worked with Mr. ATYEO, his colleague's efforts were the likely inspiration behind Peter Ustinov's oft-quoted description of the city as "New York run by the Swiss."
Mr. ATYEO "was an excellent public servant with a strong interest in the city," Mr. CROMBIE said. "In those days, Toronto had a great reputation as a city that works, as 'Toronto the clean,' and Harold made an enormous contribution toward that."
One of his more popular legacies was a service that allowed senior citizens to have their sidewalks shovelled for them, free of charge. He was also involved in restoring the historic St. Lawrence Market and Town Hall to their 19th-century splendour.
It wasn't all laurels, however. As streets commissioner, Mr. ATYEO faced garbage strikes, inclement weather and bad tempers as one of the most picked-on bureaucrats at city hall, frequently blamed for snowdrifts, stinky streets and litter.
Opinions differ as to whether Mr. ATYEO was a visionary or a pragmatist, but his efforts took him as far afield as the Kremlin, New York and Buckingham Palace.
"He was a strong proponent of things that simply made sense," said his son Mark. "In Moscow, he was struck by the non-unionized babushkas picking up street litter with corn brooms."
Harold ATYEO was the second of three children born in Camden, Ontario, to Jesse May (MANLEY) and Frank Wesley ATYEO. In 1920, when he was 2, his family purchased a farm in Lethbridge, Alberta. He told stories about heading into town for supplies with his older brother William and passing a community of Blood Indians, who were living in tepees along the Oldman River Valley.
In 1923, the family moved back to St. Catharines, Ontario, where his father worked first as a blacksmith, then as a hydro linesman until an injury ended his career. As a teenager during the Depression, Harold delivered newspapers and stocked grocery shelves to help support the family. In 1938, he attended teachers college at the Toronto Normal School (now part of Ryerson University) and began his first assignment a year later, on the day Germany invaded Poland and the Second World War began.
He soon became principal of a two-room schoolhouse in Amherstburg, Ontario In 1943, conflicted about not being part of the war, he left teaching and joined Ferry Command in Montreal, where he worked as an air navigation instructor. In 1944, at the age of 26, he realized that because of a punctured eardrum, he'd never get his wings. Hoping to at least get closer to the action, he joined the merchant marine.
The war ended shortly after his first trip across the Atlantic, however, and he returned to the family home, which by then was in Windsor, Ontario He took a job as an inventory clerk at a department store. The war widow who hired him was Margaret Loretta CASSON - they married in 1948 and moved to Fredericton, where he obtained an engineering degree. After moving back to Ontario two years later, he began his career in municipal engineering.
In 1953, he took a position as an engineer with the Township of North York, which was amalgamated into the City of Toronto the following year. In 1964, he took a job as commissioner of the streets department in the city of Toronto and moved into an office in the new City Hall. One of his early tasks included posting newspaper notices urging citizens to "clean up, paint up, don't be a litter bug."
From there, he moved on to being a kind of ambassador for the city, culminating in a trip to Moscow in 1968, in the thick of the Cold War, to meet with Soviet premier Alexey Kosygin and make suggestions about such issues as street cleaning, snow removal and synchronized traffic lights.
Ben GRYS, who was chairman of Toronto's public works department at the time, joined Mr. ATYEO in Moscow. He remembers his colleague as approachable and open-minded, but noted: "He wouldn't mind getting into a real knock-'em-out discussion to prove his point, and in most cases, he was right."
On the way back from the Soviet Union, Mr. and Mrs. ATYEO stopped off for a luncheon hosted by the Queen at Buckingham Palace. Although this luncheon made for a good family story, his son said nobody knew exactly why his parents were invited in the first place.
In 1972, Mr. ATYEO instituted another significant change by reducing Toronto's curbside garbage pickup to once a week, from twice. "It would be a nice, clean operation," he told The Globe and Mail at the time.
The schedule shift was an important step along the road toward the kind of recycling and composting initiatives the city has in place today, with garbage now picked up only once every two weeks. Nevertheless, when it was implemented, critics saw it as anything but clean. A union spokesman representing garbage collectors told the Toronto Star that once-a-week pickups would result in the trash "being carted off by maggots… hopefully they'll walk in the direction of the garbage trucks." There were also layoffs.
The streets and works departments merged in 1972 and fell under the jurisdiction of commissioner Ray BREMNER. Mr. ATYEO lost his title and reluctantly moved into a new position in the property department.
One of his last major projects for the city was in 1974, restructuring St. Lawrence Market and Town Hall. "They re-established the St. Lawrence Hall and did a lot of renovation in the South Market," Mr. CROMBIE said. "And here we are, 33 years later, [planning to] change the St. Lawrence Hall into the Toronto museum… Harold would have understood the vision."
Mr. ATYEO left Toronto in 1976 to take a job as superintendent of works in Gravenhurst, Ontario, where he worked until retiring a decade later. The end of his career, however, harked back to his schoolhouse roots: He temporarily went back to work as a supply teacher, teaching shop.
Harold ATYEO was born June 24, 1918, in Camden, Ontario, and died of cancer August 26, 2007. He was 89. He is predeceased by wife Margaret and leaves children Frank, Candace, Susan, Debra, Mark and Jo.

Londoner charged in fatal
It appears the driver passed another driver on the right, lost control of the car on the gravel shoulder and rolled into a ditch, police say.
By Debora VAN BRENK, Sun Media, Thurs., August 23, 2007
A London man is charged with criminal negligence causing death and police are trying to figure out how a car reported stolen from Windsor on Tuesday ended up hours later in a Zorra Township ditch.
Police yesterday identified the victim as 15-year-old Marie TOLEAH of London, but released no further identifying details.
Six Londoners, including the teenager who died, were in the Pontiac Sunfire that crashed in the rural Oxford County township.
"It's very tragic," said Ontario Provincial Police Const. Dennis Harwood.
Harwood said witness statements and technical traffic investigators are to sort out what happened and why.
He said it appears the driver passed another driver on the right, lost control of the car on the gravel shoulder and rolled into a ditch on the south side of Oxford Road 2.
The people in the car included three men, ages 24 (two) and 32, and three teenage girls, 15 (two) and 18.
Some of the occupants wore seatbelts, Harwood said, but it was unclear how many.
The occupants all knew each other, directly or indirectly, he added.
Ibrahim Samory MANSARAY, 24, of London, is charged with criminal negligence causing death, possession of a stolen vehicle and breach of probation.
He was treated and released from Woodstock hospital.
witnesses: were horrified as the events unfolded in front of and beside them.
"He flew past me and lost control," said Florence HEEMAN, who saw the car flip two cars ahead of her.
"He tried to pass us and couldn't get in quick enough."
Tony OVERZET watched from his rearview mirror in the west lane.
"It flipped three times, side over side, and then two times nose over tail," he said of the wrecked car.
The driver, he said, "had lots of speed."
