Fergie remembered
By Jered STUFFCO, Canadian Press, Sun., July 22, 2007
Windsor -- Hit first and keep swinging.
That was one of the credos by which former Montreal Canadians enforcer John FERGUSON Sr. led his life -- on and off the ice.
But while FERGUSON made his name as a tough guy in the mid 1960s to early 1970s, the hundreds of mourners who packed the All Saints Anglican Church here yesterday morning remembered a devoted father and husband.
"I strive to emulate my father's traits," said Toronto Maple Leafs general manager John FERGUSON Jr., who remembered his dad as a caring and compassionate man.
FERGUSON, who rarely lost a fight on the ice during his career, succumbed to cancer last Saturday at the age of 68.
"He lived by standards that may seem incongruous to those who don't know him," the younger FERGUSON said.
The service began with a family procession punctuated by the sombre sound of bagpipes. And during an emotional eulogy, the younger FERGUSON shared some of his favourite memories.
Once, when his father came home with a cast on his fist after an on-ice incident with Eddie Westfall, the younger FERGUSON, who was five when his father retired, asked his dad if he'd ever lost a fight on the ice.
"Only to your mom, son," the enforcer replied.
FERGUSON Jr. also told the crowded church how his parents met 56 years ago in Vancouver, and how their love and dedication to one another was an inspiration and an example.
"I now know that no boy or family could ever have a better father," he said.
Ted Foreman, a close friend who worked with the elder FERGUSON during his tenure as general manager of the Winnipeg Jets, said his friend was like a "good dinner roll -- crusty on the outside but soft on the inside."
FERGUSON Sr. was diagnosed with prostate cancer in September 2005, and FERGUSON's daughter, Joanne, recalled how her father's courage and determination never swayed.
"Cancer is so limited, it cannot cripple love or shatter hope," she said.
FERGUSON Sr. was an integral part of a Montreal Canadians squad which won the Stanley Cup five times during his career from 1964 to In 500 regular-season games, he accumulated 303 points (145 goals, 158 assists). His rugged playing style also earned him 1,214 penalty minutes.
Joining the senior FERGUSON's four children, 10 grandchildren and hundreds of Friends were many familiar faces from the hockey world such as Montreal Canadians legend Serge Savard.
"People have to remember that when John FERGUSON played in the American League he was an all-star who scored 40 goals," said Savard, who added FERGUSON scored 29 goals one season and shared the ice with the likes of Jean Beliveau.
"Sure, he was a tough player, but he was also a very good player."

Mom, 2 kids killed, son, dad injured in horrific crash
Police say the Hamilton-area crash occurred when a van ran a stop sign.
By Rob LAMBERTI, Sun Media, Sat., August 25, 2007
Hamilton -- A family's plan of a new start to their lives ended in tragedy when a van ran a stop sign and demolished their minivan near Brantford, killing a mom and two of her kids.
Shannon O'LEARY, 32, and her two-month-old daughter Hailey O'LEARY- FERGUSON died instantly in the 9: 06 p.m. Thursday crash at Brant County Rd. 4 and the Burford-Delhi Townline Rd.
Shannon's daughter, Taylor O'LEARY, 10, died at 3 a.m. yesterday in Hamilton hospital, say Friends and neighbours, and her organs were donated.
Her son, Ethan, 4, is in a medically induced coma following surgery for severe head trauma and Shannon's husband, Dennis FERGUSON, is in stable condition.
The 21-year-old driver of the other van, a Chevy Astro, is in grave condition. He is accused of running the stop sign and slamming into the victims' northbound Pontiac Montana, which was almost split in two by the tremendous impact.
Ariel VARGA, 12, said she's finding it difficult losing a close friend. Taylor "was a good person. She was nice, She liked to go shopping a lot," Ariel said. "She had lots of Friends around here."
Friend Natalia ALFANO, 9, said the neighbourhood girls would play cheerleading, dolls and gymnastics. "It was really fun to play with her," Natalia said. "We always used to laugh together and play."
Ontario Provincial Police Const. Larry PLUMMER said investigators were told by a witness driving behind the Chevy Astro that there were no brake lights before the Chevy crashed into the passenger sliding door of the victims' Montana.
"It was an incredible, terrible impact," he said.
"We don't have a clue" why the driver failed to stop, PLUMMER said, adding the area is flat and it was a "beautiful moonlit night."
"There's no rhyme or reason and the only person that obviously knows was driving the vehicle and we don't expect to talk to him for quite a while, if we ever do."
PLUMMER said it took Brant County volunteer firefighters about 20 minutes to free the trapped man.

FERGUSON, Joan (née HEATHERINGTON)
(December 10, 1955-December 11, 2006)
A special tribute to a Wife and Mother!
If there is happiness in my heart
It's because you helped put it there.
If there is gentleness in my beliefs
It's because you showed me how to care.
If there is understanding in my thinking
It's because you shared your wisdom.
If there is a rainbow over my shoulder
It's because of your outlook and your vision.
If there is a knowledge that I can reach out
And can really make dreams come true
It's because I learned from the best teacher of all, I learned it from you.
This is a tribute to Joan FERGUSON who passed away December 11, 2006, at age 51.
She was a kind, caring and compassionate person who committed her life to loving her family. She worked in oncology for several years at Royal Victoria Hospital. Joan was a loving wife to John FERGUSON mother of Heather and Jennifer, a sister to Jean LYONS, daughter of Ruth and the late Ken HEATHERINGTON and aunt to Drew and Angie LYONS.

His love and support will be sadly missed by numerous nieces and nephews on both sides of the family. Gerv enjoyed a long teaching career which began at Richmond School, a one room school house in Carling Township, Ontario - September 1934-June 1936. This was followed by Victory School in Parry Sound, Ontario - September 1936-June 1939. Opportunities abounded in Sudbury so Gerv moved north to teach at Alexander Public School - September 1939-June 1941. He spoke fondly of summers spent at Camp Falcona as Co-Director with good friend Bill Edgar. He left Sudbury late in 1941 to fight in World War 2 as an Aircrew Navigator with the Royal Canadian Air Force. He was on loan to 279 Squadron of the Royal Air Force flying Lougheed Hudsons from the North Sea to the French, Dutch and Danish coasts (Air Sea Resuce, Coastal Command, Bircham Newton, Norfolk, 1943-1944). He was then transferred to 161 Squadron of the Royal Air Force navigating Lougheed Hudsons and Stirling aircraft as Special Duties Support dropping agents and supplies behind enemy lines for the Resistance Movement in France, Holland, Denmark, Northern Germany and Norway, (3 Group-Bomber Command, Tempsford, Bedfordshire, 1944-1945).

The whole family benefited immensely as a result of this wonderful opportunity. Upon his return to Sudbury, Gerv was the Principal of Adamsdale Public School where he retired in June 1977.

It must also be mentioned that Gerv was one of the four founding builders/owners of the Caswell Motor Hotel. Gerv was born and raised in Parry Sound, Ontario. He was always proud of his roots and often took fellow "Parry Sounders" under his wing when they made their way to Sudbury to work. Always the gentleman, he will truly be missed by many.

LOVENUIK, STEVE
Pa, a master builder of family, Friendships, and structures, passed away peacefully at home, on Wednesday, July 4, 2007. Steve's passion for living life fully and sharing that passion made him unforgettable to all that he met. He was a positive force in many lives, especially his family of 8 children, 17 grandchildren, and to Dorothy, his loving wife of 51 years. Steve is survived by Dorothy; children and grandchildren, Jeff (Cheryl), Anna, Calvin LOVENUIK of Calgary, Laurie (Perry,) Kyle, Kurtis, Michael NISHIYAMA of Edmonton, Donna (John,) Alyson, Veronica, Paula ROONEY of Calgary, Pat (Dale,) Kara, Ben, Mallory KNELLER of Durango, Colorado, Stephen LOVENUIK of Revelstoke, British Columbia, Mary (Gord,) Krysia, Ross, Reid FERGUSON of Calgary, Margaret (Joe) Sofia SCHLIESSLER of Vancouver, British Columbia, and Monica (Dave,) Declan, Brendan GAINER of Redmond, Washington; sisters, Mary (Joe) HOOVER, Elise (Chris) DEMUYNCK, Margaret GELINAS, and brother Al (Heather) LOVENUIK. Steve was born in Smoky Lake in 1934, the son of Anna and Nicholas LOVENUIK. He grew up in Coal Valley. Steve was respected as an owner of a successful construction business in Edmonton. Over many years he was responsible for the construction of several hundred buildings in the area. Steve was forever working to help those he loved. Throughout his life he was always aware of the needs of his growing family and made everyone happy. He gave us a great sense of family that we all possess now - that legacy lives on. He loved to see his family gathered around the dining room table for a feast prepared by Dorothy and to hold everyone captive until he recited his Italian, or Polish, or Latin version of Grace. Like Louis Armstrong sang, Steve lived in 'A Wonderful World'. We will miss him at track meets, recitals, athletic races, golf games, ski hills, volleyball games, dance competitions and soccer games. He was an avid spectator and Number One Fan of his children and his grandchildren's endeavors. We would like to thank Doctor Helen Hays for her kind and caring support and efforts to help make Pa comfortable in his final week.
