Farm life taught veteran importance of helping
By Vera OVANIN, Sun Media, Sun., July 8, 2007
When Second World War veteran Frederick JONES learned his friend's mother was ticketed for parking in a wheelchair-designated spot despite having a handicapped sticker on her car, he took it up with the city hall -- and won.
"That was the type of person that he was," said friend Sandra COLLIER, who volunteered with JONES at the Riverview Group Kiwanis Club for almost 10 years.
"He was very conscious of detail and he was very helpful."
JONES died of heart failure on June 21 in the Perley-Rideau Veterans' Health Centre in Ottawa.
He was 88.
JONES's spent his early years on several farms in Southwestern Ontario.
"My father was taught all the values that were part of farming life, to hang in there when things were tough, and to be as helpful as you could and honest as you could," said Kathy JONES, his eldest daughter.
"They translated into his life and he was very well rounded.
"My sisters and I would often joke that he could fix anything with a piece of wire and a Swiss army knife."
JONES enrolled in mechanical engineering at the University of Toronto, but took a break to join the Royal Air Force in 1941, where he became a pilot.
"When Poland was invaded, he was absolutely enraged. He felt Nazis had taken too much territory," his daughter said.
Soon after, JONES enlisted and trained others to fly Tiger Moths, Harvards and Spitfires before joining the Royal Canadian Air Force in Britain.
Postwar, he obtained his engineering degree and rejoined the Royal Canadian Air Force, retiring from the forces as a lieutenant colonel in 1970, before working in the University of Western Ontario's office of the registrar until 1983.
He also volunteered with community groups, including Meals on Wheels.
JONES was known for creating H.E.L.P., a London program that ensure lists of seniors' medications are placed where emergency personnel can find them.
He was active with the Oakridge Presbyterian Church, where he enjoyed making music with the bell choir.
JONES is survived by daughters Kathy, Susan, Janis, Patricia and Rosemary. son Peter died in infancy.
"My father always treated us no differently because we were girls," said Janis JONES, an Ottawa architect. "He suggested to me to go into engineering and always took us camping,"
JONES's wife, Lillian, to whom he was married for 54 years, died of cancer in 1995.

Pillar of Sunnidale community remembered Monday
Betty SPICHER honoured earlier this year with Sunnidale Senior of the Year award
By Michael GENNINGS, Page 8
Betty SPICHER, Sunnidale Winterama's 2007 Female Senior of the Year, died on Friday at Stayner Nursing Home.
She was 80.
The family said SPICHER's cause of death was related to heart trouble.
SPICHER (née PADDISON) was a native of Sunnidale Township and throughout her life was heavily involved in the community.
She was awarded the Senior of the Year honour during a special ceremony in February at the New Lowell branch of the Royal Canadian legion.
"I sure wasn't expecting this?" SPICHER told The Stayner Sun in an interview at the time. "It was very nice. Thank goodness they didn't ask me to make a speech because I wouldn't have been able to give one."
In receiving the award, SPICHER was recognized for her 55 years with the Women's Institute and for her volunteer efforts at the Sunnidale Corners Community Centre, where she helped organize such things as dances and lunches.
As well, for the last 17 years, until just recently, SPICHER was the caretaker and treasurer of the hall.
In an interview earlier this year, SPICHER said she enjoyed helping out. She added that volunteers help make small communities such special places.
A funeral service for SPICHER was held at Centennial United Church in Stayner on Monday afternoon, with burial at Stayner Union Cemetery.
SPICHER's daughter Elaine COLLINGS told The Stayner Sun that her mother was "a hard-working person who didn't like to be idle."
She added her mother was devoted to family and Friends.
Her interests included quilting, knitting and gardening. COLLINGS said her mom did pickling every year, giving much of it away to family and Friends.
COLLINGS said she would remember her mother as "the go-to person," for advice about such things as recipes and family matters like birthday dates and names.
The family said that donations in memory of SPICHER could be made to the Heart and Stroke Foundation, General and Marine Hospital or the charity of choice.
SPICHER, predeceased by her husband Edward, is survived by daughter Gail and her husband Randy JOHNS of Blackstock, Elaine and her husband Allen COLLINGS of Stayner, Murray and his wife Carolin of Collingwood and Barry and his wife Louise of Sunnidale Corners.

BARR was the first lifeguard at Grand Bend beach
By Lynda HILLMAN- RAPLEY, Sun Media, Sun., September 23, 2007
When Les BARR and his University of Western Ontario buddy decided Grand Bend beach needed lifeguards, they went to village council and pitched the idea.
They were given the okay as long as they built their own lifeguard stand. So they did.
And in 1946, 26-year-old BARR, whose family lived in London but vacationed in Grand Bend, was hired, along with friend David STITT, to be a lifeguard for the summer.
The Bend's first-ever lifeguard, later in life known as the Mayor of Alberta Street, BARR died recently at age 88.
BARR, who also once worked at the Lakeview Casino, studied journalism at the University of Western Ontario. He later married and had two children, Leigh and Laurie.
BARR often spoke of his Second World War buddies, Gordon ROACH and Daniel COLLINS. Friends since their teens, they enlisted, BARR said, 'cause it was the thing to do."
BARR was injured in the war -- defending a young woman in a bar brawl.
In later years, BARR worked at General Electric, where he once escorted singer Robert Goulet and actor Kate Mitchell on a cross-Canada promotion for the company.
He left General Electric in 1961 and bought an appliance store that grew to two stores and was later sold to the Patton brothers of London.
In the early 1950s, BARR built a cottage on two lots on Alberta Street in Grand Bend, hence the mayor monicker.
He retired from MF Arnsby Property management at age 65. He loved to swim, dance to big band music and was often seen cruising the Bend strip, checking out what was happening.

HARRISON, Alma (née HOLDEN)
On Wednesday September 26, peacefully in the care of her loving family after a hard fought battle against Parkinson's Disease. She will be missed for her wit and her laughing, loving, kindness-filled eyes.
Alma was born in Wallasey, Cheshire and spent her childhood throughout Cheshire and Lancashire. Served in the Auxiliary Territorial Services during World War 2. She was introduced to Patrick, a Canadian serving officer, at her parents' home where he proposed to her the same evening.
Throughout his military career in the Royal Canadian Artillery, Alma loyally and with a keen eye for the ironic, followed on with or "stored" their "F&E" if PMQs were not available, as duty required. They had postings in Vancouver, Shilo, Rivers, Kingston and Gagetown in Canada and in Hemer, W. Germany.
After retirement, Alma became very involved with the spinning and weaving communities around Saanich and with her own needlework. Spent nearly 30 years at their home in Sidney, British Columbia at "10-2-12" where they entertained many dear Friends and family who visited often and hosted countless lively parties. Took pride in her garden and generously supported her grandchildren as they grew. Her family well remembers her conversing, knitting, and reading while watching television. For such a vibrant person, Parkinson's was a cruel and merciless opponent.
She leaves behind, her husband of 64 years, Patrick D.A. HARRISON, son Ian HARRISON, daughter Wendy MASSING, sister Patricia COLLINS and brother Larry HOLDEN, grandchildren Kate and Ben HARRISON and Dana MASSING.
The family wishes to thank Alma's caregivers from IQHC, the Palliative Care Unit of Vancouver Coastal Health and the staff at Crofton Manor for their kindness and attention to the family's needs. Memorial service will be held at Saint Mary's Kerrisdale on Wednesday October 3rd at 2 p.m. following a private service for the family of the committal of the ashes.
In lieu of flowers, donations may be made to any of the following: Victoria Parkinson's and Epilepsy Centre - 813 Darwin Ave., Victoria, British Columbia, V8X 2X7. Parkinson's Society of British Columbia Suite 600 - 890 W. Pender St. Vancouver, British Columbia, V6C 1J9 or the Pacific Parkinson's Research Centre 210-1095 W. Pender St. Vancouver British Columbia V6E 2M6.
