Michael John SAVAGE
Mike passed away peacefully, surrounded by his loving family, in Scottsdale, Arizona, December 19, 2006 at the age of 42 after a courageous battle with cancer.
Mike is now with his other loving family members and Friends who went before him and were waiting to welcome him to his new home. He lovingly leaves his Mom and Dad, John and Sharon of Bay Estates on Manitoulin Island, his partner Lindsay TAIT/TAITE/TATE of Sudbury and their daughter Maraina, his former wife Denyse of Sudbury and their son Mason, his loving and supportive siblings, his sister Cheryl FABBRO (Jamie) of Sudbury, and their children Brendan, Will, Caden and Mike's namesake Mikayla, his brother Brian (Debbie) of Scottsdale, Arizona and their children Ryan and Redmond, his brother Dave (Kim) of Upland, California, and their children Cameron, Megan (predeceased) and Kristin, his Grandparents, Art (predeceased) and Winnie HILLIMAN of Saint Catharines and Wiliam and Dorothy SAVAGE (both predeceased) of Sudbury. Sadly missed by loving aunts, uncles and cousins. Mike enjoyed many outdoor activities including golfing and fishing and loved spending time at the camp on Manitoulin Island. He was very athletic and played many sports during his school years at R. L. Beattie and McLeod elementary schools and Lo-Ellen Park Secondary School, still holding some school and city records in track and field. His main love was hockey, playing on Sudbury's travelling minor teams, the Garson Native Sons of the NOJHL junior league and three years of major Junior A with the Sudbury Wolves and Belleville Bulls. He was especially proud to wear the Sudbury Wolves sweater and continued to be a Wolves supporter in later life. In 1996-97 he was an assistant coach with the Wolves. Mike also attended the University of Toronto playing with the Varsity Blues for two years. Mike often jokingly reminded his younger brother Brian that he had cleared away all the hurdles for him, making his path to the NHL an easier one. Upon returning to Sudbury in 1993, Mike continued with his love of hockey, playing with the Sudbury Nooners and many other recreational teams. Mike had a way of turning most people he met into good Friends, so he leaves behind many more people that he loved and who loved him. His family and Friends will miss his company, his good natured kidding and his wry sense of humour which stayed with him until he left us. Mike was so happy to be a father. He was so very proud of his son Mason, who he was able to help guide through the first 12 years of his life. And he was so happy to be able to spend a few precious months with his beautiful little daughter Maraina who brightened his life while he fought so hard against his terrible disease. Rested at the Jackson and Barnard Funeral Home, 233 Larch Street, Sudbury. Funeral Service was at St. Andrew's United Church, 111 Larch St, Sudbury, Saturday, December 23rd, 2006 at 11: 30 am. Cremation at Parklawn Crematorium. In lieu of flowers, donations to the Mason and Maraina SAVAGE Trust Fund would be appreciated.

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.

Ford Canada president recognized the value of a free-trade auto pact
Described as a youthful financial whiz when he took over at 42, he also persuaded head office to build a engine plant in Canada after twisting the arms of Pierre Trudeau and Bill Davis
By Douglas McARTHUR, Special to The Globe and Mail, Page S9
Toronto -- Roy BENNETT helped his buddies set up the "Friday Night Poker Club" while attending North Toronto Collegiate Institute in 1945. He would continue to attend its monthly sessions for more than 60 years.
During that time, he became a chartered accountant, rose through the ranks of the Ford Motor Co. of Canada to become its president at age 42 without having gone to university, and held executive and board positions with many of the country's leading businesses and institutions. But he never abandoned the regular poker-and-beer nights with his old Friends, many of whom also became business leaders.
"Whatever he did, he was committed," said Jim Hunter, who worked with him on a number of financial projects and is now president of NexGen Financial. "Whether it was business, tennis or poker, those commitments were life-long," he said. He was also very bright, affable and "a counter-thinker, who would look at a problem and come up with a different conclusion than everyone else."
Ken Harrigan, who followed Mr. BENNETT as president of Ford Canada, said his predecessor's main contribution was convincing government officials in Ottawa to negotiate a free-trade auto pact with Washington. The Canada-United States Automotive Agreement, signed in 1965, allowed free movement across the border of vehicles from Big Three auto plants in both countries. For Canada, this meant lower car prices and an increase in Canadian production, which created new jobs.
While heading Ford's Canadian subsidiary from 1970 to 1981, Mr. BENNETT worked to build a profitable operation independent of the U.S. head office. He also made relations with employees a priority and reached out to find common ground with both government and organized labour. After stepping down as president in 1981, he founded and ran Bennecon, a firm that provides cash-flow advice to large companies. At the same time, he served terms as chairman or director with BP Canada, Midland Walwyn, Jannock, Metropolitan Life Holdings Co., York University, the Mississauga Hospital, Scouts Canada and a host of other companies and organizations.
Ron Osborne, chairman of Sun Life Financial, called Mr. BENNETT a role model for accountants who want to make other contributions - "to go straight," as he put it. "He was the model director big picture, strategic, not prone to sweat the details, rigorous in his questioning, but, after the decisions were made, very supportive."
Mr. BENNETT and his wife, Gail COOK- BENNETT, were one of corporate Canada's power couples. When they were married in 1978, he was president of Ford Canada and she was executive vice-president of the C.D. Howe Institute of Research in Montreal. They met at a Canadian-American Committee meeting in Washington. At the end of one session, Dick Schmeelk, an American who served as co-chair of the group, invited them for a ride in a Cadillac to go and get a nightcap. The irony, Mr. Schmeelk said, was that the president of Ford Canada had that "first date" in a General Motors vehicle.
Over the years, they twice served on the boards of competing corporations - once in the petroleum field, once in insurance. No discussion of their respective companies was allowed at home, said Ms. COOK- BENNETT, who is now chair of the Canada Pension Plan Investment Board.
While president of Ford Canada, Mr. BENNETT persuaded the U.S. head office to build a $535-million engine plant in Windsor, Ontario, instead of Ohio, which was offering state subsidies. He alerted Queen's Park and Ottawa to the urgent need for their involvement, and arranged a meeting between prime minister Pierre Trudeau and Ontario premier William Davis while both were attending the Calgary Stampede. On the spot, the two agreed to a $68-million cash incentive plan that helped seal the deal.
The youngest of two sons of English-born parents, William Charles BENNETT and Gladys Mabel (MATTHEWS), Roy Frederick BENNETT spent his early years in Winnipeg. Roy was 10 when his father, a manufacturing agent in the woollens industry, moved the family to Toronto. In 1941, while attending Maurice Cody Public School, Roy played on the team that won the Toronto school soccer championship.
Athletics were to play an important role in his life. He enjoyed hockey, golf and squash. As a young man, he once won a tennis match against Don Fontana, who later became one of Canada's top-seeded players.
After high school, Mr. BENNETT chose a fast-track route to become a chartered accountant. He apprenticed directly with the accounting firm Lever and Hoskin, rather than attending university. He worked with the firm until 1954, when he joined Kelvinator.
Two years later, he moved to Ford Canada as supervisor of financial planning. He was made marketing manager in 1964 and vice-president of finance in 1965. In the early years at Ford, Mr. BENNETT was offered a posting in South Africa and was told it could help his chances of becoming president. He declined, preferring not to uproot his family, according to daughter Brenda BENNETT- LEARMONTH. He had married Laurie McDERMOTT in 1955 and they had three children, Bruce, Brenda and Lynne. The couple later separated and were divorced. Laurie McDermott BENNETT later died.
But opportunities knocked again at Ford Canada. Mr. BENNETT had won the admiration and backing of Ford Motor Co. chairman Henry Ford II by making himself the company expert on free trade, and on November 16, 1970, he was given the job of president.
Heading one of Canada's largest companies at 42 won Mr. BENNETT the reputation of being a wunderkind. In a profile, The Globe and Mail described him as a "youthful financial whiz who never graduated from university." Two years later, he was given the additional title of Chief Executive Officer.
When he was made president, Mr. BENNETT said he would take the job for no less than five years and no more than 10, says his son Bruce, now president of Bennecon. "He felt if you couldn't do what you wanted in 10 years, it was time for someone else to take charge."
So in 1981, he stepped down as president, although he served a brief period after that as chairman. He turned down an executive job offer at the U.S. head office because he didn't want to leave Canada. He continued to serve on the Ford Canada board until the subsidiary was privatized in 1995.
Claude Lamoureux was an executive at Metropolitan Life Holdings when Mr. BENNETT was named chair of the company's board. He went to their first meeting together prepared to answer questions about sales and finances. Instead, Mr. BENNETT wanted to know about the human resources department. "He put real emphasis on people, on having the right human resources department… on having the right team," said Mr. Lamoureux, now president and Chief Executive Officer of the Ontario Teachers' Pension Fund.
In 1986, Mr. BENNETT served on the Royal Commission on Unemployment Insurance and issued a minority report saying that plans to remove seasonal benefits would be too Draconian a measure for chronically depressed regions. He argued that an income-supplement program should be put in place before any move was made to base unemployment benefits on a full year's income. That strong sense of fair play was demonstrated again in February, 1995, when he wrote a critical letter to Ford's U.S. head office. It charged that the parent company's transfer pricing policy was suppressing profits at the Canadian subsidiary.
He called the low earnings "an embarrassment for management, employees and dealers as well as Canadian directors." The letter suggested that Ford Motor Co. buy out the minority shareholders if it was not prepared to let the Canadian operations become more profitable. A buyout plan was announced two months later.
A focal point for the BENNETT family's time together was a cottage on an island in Lake of Bays, in the Muskoka area, north of Toronto. Mr. BENNETT installed "the smallest car ferry in the world" to transport his Ford Explorer to the island, said Keith HILLYER, who had a cottage nearby. A motorized cable system pulled the ferry across. "To get on the ferry, the car had to go down a precipitous incline," Mr. HILLYER said. "He had to be careful it didn't slide off the other side."
Mr. BENNETT pursued his busy lifestyle of business, charitable, athletic and social endeavours into his late 70s - it was just last year when a diagnosis of bladder cancer forced him to slow down.
A year ago, he attended his last session of the Friday Night Poker Club and lost $120. David FLEMING/FLEMMING, one of four founding members still living, says the group plans to carry on its six-decades-old tradition.
Roy Frederick BENNETT was born in Winnipeg on March 18, 1928. He died at his Toronto home of bladder cancer on June 4, 2007. He was 79. He leaves his wife, Gail Cook- BENNETT; children Bruce, Brenda, Lynne and Christopher; and seven grandchildren. He was predeceased by his brother, Ken.

HILSDEN o@ca.on.grey_county.owen_sound.the_sun_times 2007-06-07 published
HILSDEN resourceful, considerate helper
By Scott DUNN, Thursday, June 07, 2007
Larry HILSDEN rarely had time to stand still.
The easygoing local landlord of mostly dilapidated buildings always had another faucet to fix or stove to scrounge parts for, so he kept moving to the next task. It was common for him to be working in someone's apartment at 11 p.m.
He was killed by James MORELLI, 34, who was HILSDEN's tenant. MORELLI pleaded guilty on Wednesday to manslaughter and other charges and was sent to prison for five years.
MORELLI was living in a house under renovation with no working bathroom. He was doing work for HILSDEN around the house, including siding it, a court document says.
The night MORELLI unintentionally killed HILSDEN with a kick to the head, he had been arguing with HILSDEN about fixing the bathroom and he wanted a rent receipt. HILSDEN rebuked him for the quality of some of MORELLI's work, said the document, which was filed by the defence based on Crown disclosure of information.
HILSDEN was a slum landlord in some people's books. But that was a matter of perspective.
His tenants were often dangling from society's lowest rung, with no way to afford anything better.
Often they clung to HILSDEN for shelter and support. They depended on his tolerance for late payment.
Not all his tenants were marginalized; some just appreciated his affordable rents.
"He cut everybody a deal, or give them a break, to people who couldn't pay money at the time," Ken HILSDEN said, Larry's next oldest brother. "He'd never turn anybody away."
One of them was James MORELLI. About 2000 MORELLI arrived in Owen Sound on a bus and ended up living in HILSDEN's own house. HILSDEN supported him and paid for him to get his driver's licence. HILSDEN moved Jamie, as he's known, into another of his houses, HILSDEN's family members said.
Larry HILSDEN "bent over backwards" for MORELLI, Ken HILSDEN said.
Larry HILSDEN was a busy man, but easygoing, with a ready smile. He would slap his leg when he laughed, remembered Judy HILSDEN, his sister-in-law.
He would arrive late and leave early from family gatherings, if he got there at all. One had been scheduled to take place a few weeks after he was killed. He'd vowed at the previous gathering never to miss another one because he had so much fun.
"He only worked on urgent and important," said brother-in-law Jim Austin.
"And the list of urgent and critical was never-ending," Ken HILSDEN said.
It was common for HILSDEN to work 20-hour days before spending a month in his favourite vacation site, Rio de Janeiro.
He bought most of his properties in the 1990s, about when his downtown stereo shop, Hilsden Sight and Sound, wound down. By one count he owned 58 properties when he was killed.
For a time Larry HILSDEN owned the Savoy Theatre, now an office and apartment building just north of the Grey Granite Club. He owned the bowling alley nearby, and a Texaco Service Station on 9th Avenue East.
He also owned the Edgewater Inn, once the place to dine in Owen Sound, but not by the time he bought it; the Rock'N Roll dance bar at Sauble Beach and Ted and Grace's hamburger stand near the legion. "He tried everything," Ron HILSDEN said.
He worked in Waterloo at Mutual Life doing data processing and then he did similar work at PPG in Owen Sound.
HILSDEN showed a can-do attitude early.
In the early 1970s there were two computers in Owen Sound and Larry leased time on one at an accounting firm, then used it to do contract computing jobs for other local companies.
"Basically he didn't like working for somebody else," Ron HILSDEN said. "He was a hard worker," said his sister, Nancy Austin.
Ken HILSDEN recalled being "in awe" of his resourceful brother as a teenager.
Larry once bought a'65 Galaxy with a smashed back end. He welded the good front half to back half of another Galaxy he scrounged. Larry was Ken's mentor and inspiration for tackling his own automotive jobs.
Larry HILSDEN married twice and had two kids, Jeff, 42, and Keri, 39. When his first wife died he remarried briefly time but that ended. There are three grandchildren.
At the sentencing Wednesday, Ron HILSDEN said his brother was best man at his wedding and was the person to call for advice. "Until someone or something is gone you don't know their true value."
