Wife killed, spouse critical after fire
By Daniela SIMUNAC and Kathy RUMLESKI, Sun Media, Mon., December 3, One woman died and her husband was critically burned in a weekend fire that consumed a one-storey house in Alvinston.
Brenda GREENWOOD was identified as the person deceased and her husband Jim is in a London hospital with critical burns.
The cause of death has not been determined.
The Ontario Fire Marshal's Office was called to investigate the Saturday night blaze at 8066 Wallace St. in the Lambton County community.
A neighbour found an injured Jim GREENWOOD outside a west side door, the Ontario Provincial Police said.
His wife was found by firefighters, lying inside the house by the same door.
"The scene is still being treated as a crime scene, as investigations are ongoing," said Lambton Ontario Provincial Police Const. John Reurink.
A neighbour called 911 about 8 p.m. after seeing the house engulfed in flames.
Alvinston and Watford firefighters battled the blaze and tended to the injured man.
Alvinston fire Chief Ron HILLS said firefighters were on the scene again yesterday morning. "We didn't want to pull the ceiling down (Saturday) night. There was a concern of smoke."
HILL said the fire marshal's investigator arrived on site yesterday afternoon.

Burn victim dies days after his wife
By Sun Media, Tues., December 11, 2007
A man whose wife died in a house fire in Alvinston has also died of his injuries.
James GREENWOOD, 60, injured in the December 1 fire, died at London Health Sciences Centre's burn unit, police said yesterday.
His wife, Brenda, 62, died in the fire that engulfed the one-storey home on Wallace Street.
Investigators say careless smoking was the cause of the blaze.
Neighbours in the Lambton County community spotted the fire around 8 p.m. and found GREENWOOD just outside a doorway.
His wife was later found by firefighters just inside the same doorway.
Investigators say there were two smoke detectors in the home but damage to the building made it impossible to determine if they were working at the time.

(October 13, 1938-November 9, 2007)
In his 70th year, after a courageous two year battle with cancer, Theodore (Ted) GREGOR passed away peacefully in Oakville Trafalgar Memorial Hospital. Cherished son of Alec and Emma GREGOR deceased) of Sudbury, husband of Margo, father of Jamie and Shawn, brother to Sharon, uncle to Cori and grandfather to six, Ted leaves behind a family that will sorely miss him. After graduating from Queen's University medical school in 1962, he received his specialty certification in Obstetrics and Gynecology in 1968. Perhaps his greatest attribute was his absolute commitment not only to his patients but to helping his colleagues better care for theirs. After delivering thousands of babies, Ted turned his attention to the practice of Occupational Health, making workplaces in Ontario safer for more than two decades. In later years, he became able to enjoy the pleasures of cottaging and golf, though sadly not for long enough. The GREGOR family wishes to thank the caring physicians and nurses in Oakville, Orillia and London who so ably cared for Ted.
Though saddened by our loss, we wish to celebrate a rich life that has touched so many.

He is survived by his harem beloved wife and partner of 52 years Adele (VOGEL,) daughters Johanne (Richard GREGORY) of Vancouver, Nancie LEE, Lu (Susan KING) and Karen all of Ottawa and Heidi (Robert McKEE) of Toronto. Ever the proud grandfather, 'Grampuns' will be sorely missed by Ryan, Keli, Lian and Derek GREGORY, Makena, Hayden and Lake KORTE- MOORE, Quincy and Jesse KORTE- KING and Kayla and Kieran McKEE. Predeceased by his mother and stepfather, Helvi and Eino RINTA, father Paavo KORTE and brother Matti KORTE. Born in Finland and raised in Montreal, John developed a love for the Laurentians and the ski crowd that taught him early on how to 'let 'em run' a phrase he'd enthusiastically repeat many times to young and old in his ski-obsessed family. John spent 42 years working for Bell Canada forging a successful career that began on Baffin Island and ended with 5 fascinating years spent in Saudi Arabia, before retiring to Ottawa. He was one of those fortunate few who loved every minute of his working life and considered it enriched by the experiences and colleagues who coloured his journey. John was a man who read widely, entertained graciously and was humbly grateful for the gifts of Friendship and family that meant so much to him. In lieu of flowers, his family asks that you take the time to sit down with an old friend and share a story or two… remembering that the chances to do so pass us by all too soon. Friends may visit at the Central Chapel of Hulse, Playfair and McGarry, 315 McLeod Street (Ottawa), on Sunday, January 7th, 2007 from 2 to 4 and 7 to 9 p.m. Funeral Service will be held in the Chapel on Monday, January 8th, 2007 at 2: 30 p.m. Condolences may be sent to korte.nomad@gmail.com

SAGMAN, Sadok (Febrary 2, 1927-January 7, 2007)
Passed away peacefully in his 80th year, at the Jewish General Hospital in Montreal. Devoted husband of Carmina Araujo SAGMAN. Beloved father of Sara and Ruth, Uri (Sandra), Doron (Yolanda), and Shaul. Grandfather of Gabriel, Reuben and Nathaniel; Aaron, Joel and Evan; Irene and Christine, Daniel and Stephanie. Survived by his brother Ezra. Predeceased by his parents, Flora and David SAGMAN, his brothers Eliyahu and Chaim, and by his first wife, Arlette Politi SAGMAN. Reflecting his Biblical name, meaning "the righteous," Sadok believed in justice and dedicated himself to the values important to him: family and education. The second of four brothers, he was born and raised in Baghdad. In the 1940s, after his family was forced to flee Iraq, he fought for the new State of Israel. In Israel, Sadok married Arlette POLITI, studied economics at the University of Tel Aviv, and became a banker. In 1966, seeking greater opportunities, he emigrated with his young family to Canada, where he worked as an economist for the Federal Government in Ottawa and established himself as a chartered accountant and subsequently as a real estate entrepreneur in Montreal. After the sudden death of his first wife in 1969, he raised three sons alone and later also cared for his aging parents, who joined the household. In 1979 Sadok married Carmina ARAUJO, whom he cherished, and enjoyed a new round of fatherhood with his adored daughters Sara and Ruth. With these blessings came renewed energy and purpose. Throughout his life he remained disciplined, active and optimistic, a fighter to the end. He was truly a self-made man, whose remarkable focus and determination will continue to inspire. The family is grateful to the caring staff of the Jewish General Hospital in Montreal, with particular thanks to Doctor Harvey Chang of the Palliative Care Unit, and also to Doctor Paul GREIG and Doctor Eric CHEN of the University Health Network in Toronto. A memorial service was held on January 7 in Montreal. If desired, memorial donations may be made to the Jewish General Hospital Foundation, (514) 340-8251 or www.jgh.ca

GRENON o@ca.on.york_county.toronto.globe_and_mail 2007-01-02 published
GRENON, J. Émile
By Aline GRENON, Page A14
Father, cribbage player. Born June 17, 1909, in Casselman, Ontario Died August 22 in Montreal, probably of heart failure, aged 97.
The son of an enterprising farmer turned carpenter, Émile was born the second of seven children. Graduating with a commerce degree from Bourget College, in Rigaud, Qué., in 1933, at the height of the Depression, most of Émile's first year out of school was spent looking for work. It was not until he heard of a Sudbury merchant in need of a bookkeeper that things began to look up. Telephoning from the Casselman general store, he was asked "How soon can you get here?" He responded "Within 24 hours."
After a year bunking out in the back-room of the place where he worked, Émile acquired a surrogate family when he moved into the boarding house operated by Mme. Clémentine LEFEBVRE- PAQUETTE, a remarkable woman for whom Émile developed a high regard. However, it was her entrepreneurial son Roméo who would change Émile's life. The two struck up a Friendship and one day, Roméo let drop that a well run grocery business in the then-booming mining town of Larder Lake stood a good chance of success. Émile agreed that it probably would and promptly forgot about it until Roméo informed him that he had purchased the lot that would hold their store. Although taken aback, Émile felt obliged to honour his unintentional promise and, with a small sum of borrowed money, he left Sudbury to join Roméo in business. Thus was born Paquette and Grenon (or P and G as it soon became known): the result of one man's vision and another's commitment to Friendship.
The initial years were difficult. To make ends meet, the partners delivered firewood house-to-house with a horse and wagon. At the best of times, the future appeared uncertain, and at the worse it was downright bleak, particularly when a bank manager, convinced that French-Canadians lacked business acumen, cut off their line of credit without warning. Luckily, a local bootlegger named "Black Nellie" lent them sufficient money to permit the business to survive and thrive. P and G eventually grew to eight stores.
With the advent of the Second World War, Émile enlisted in the Canadian army. Although he had no medical training, he was posted to the Royal Canadian Army Medical Corps. He often joked that this was because his brother was a doctor and one of his sisters a nurse! His was, in the parlance of the times, a "good" war. Stationed mainly at Camp Borden, Émile continued to look after P and G's accounting needs. On three occasions, he received orders to ship out to Europe, only to have them rescinded. It was during one such occasion, while awaiting transportation in Québec City that he met the charming and attractive Berthe SAMPSON/SAMSON, who was working in a munitions factory. They wed in 1946. That she married him in spite of a mix-up as to his background (the result of a letter from a confused Casselman priest who mistook him for an unsavoury cousin with a similar name) proves the extent of her faith in him. Together they would have three children. Sadly, Berthe died in early 1967, after a struggle with breast cancer.
Émile's loneliness over the next 20 years was mitigated somewhat by frequent travel, his love of golf, curling and cards, a close circle of Friends and the presence of his children. However, the next milestone in his life occurred when he met the remarkable Phyllis FRISBY, whom he married in 1986. Fun-loving and strong-willed, she reintroduced a degree of warmth and bustle into his life. He found it difficult to recover from Phil's death in 2002.
Émile's last years were spent in Montréal. Possibly his greatest joy during this period came from the countless games of cribbage he played with his children and his grand_son, Daniel.
Aline is Émile's daughter.

Man dies during late-night swim
Group jumps fence at motel
By Scott DUNN, Wednesday, August 08, 2007
A 24-year-old Hamilton man died in a closed swimming pool early Saturday morning after jumping a fence, police confirmed Tuesday.
Bruce Peninsula Ontario Provincial Police said Bruno LARANJEIRO died after getting into trouble in the pool at the Sauble Lodge Motel on Second Avenue North in Sauble Beach. Police were called at 2 a.m. to investigate a report that someone may have drowned.
"Several persons jumped the fence, locked fence, and were in the pool," Const. Dave MEYER said in an interview Tuesday. "The victim doesn't know how to swim apparently, according to the girlfriend, and she was screaming for help."
People came to his aid and performed cardiopulmonary resuscitation but LARANJEIRO died, MEYER said.
A post-mortem exam was done in Owen Sound Sunday.
Police don't suspect foul play.
Asked how LARANGEIRO ended up in the pool, MEYER said "He went swimming… it was a situation he didn't know how to swim. Alcohol was involved."
LARANJEIRO had been drinking at the motel's nightclub, MEYER said.
MEYER referred questions about the cause of death to the coroner's office. Doctor Jack STANBOROUGH said Tuesday it will take more time before a death by drowning can be confirmed because it is arrived at through a process of eliminating other possible causes.
He called it an "apparent drowning."
Jaswinder GREWAL owns the Sauble Lodge Motel. She said in an interview Tuesday she closed the bar at 12: 45 a.m. Saturday and started cleaning for about 20 minutes. She went upstairs to bed and heard someone screaming about 25 minutes later.
She looked out the window and saw six or seven people in the pool.
Initially she was angry that people had jumped the fence to swim and she came down and told them to leave.
Then she grew nervous when she saw three or four people trying to pull the naked victim out of the pool.
Next she phoned 911 but was told an ambulance was already on the way. She returned to the victim and resuscitation efforts were underway. She picked up the man's cold hand.
"I couldn't sleep whole night," GREWAL said.
A pair of underwear was found in the pool later.
Jose MARTINS said in an interview LARANJEIRO and his girlfriend stayed with him and four others in Room 48. MARTINS was Friends with LARANJEIRO and occasionally they attended the same parties.
MARTINS said his friend had been drinking that night but he didn't see him enter the pool because he stayed in the bar. He said his friend was a happy, sociable man. He worked in construction, with asphalt and cement.
He understands after LARANJEIRO's funeral Thursday he will be taken to Portugal for burial.
