Deadly triangle
A London teacher and one man are found dead in a car. Another man is shot in a parking lot.
By Joe BELANGER, Patrick MALONEY and Joe MATYAS, Sun Media, Mon., December 10, 2007
A London teacher is dead and a colleague recovering in hospital after a stunning parking lot ambush yesterday that preceded an apparent murder-suicide 300 kilometres away.
Angela SEDORE, 40, was found dead in her sport utility vehicle near Peterborough just hours after Ed DICKSON/DIXON -- a fellow teacher at Ashley Oaks elementary school -- was shot by SEDORE's boyfriend outside a south London plaza, family members say.
SEDORE's sister said she had been dating a man named Ray KING for two years.
The bodies of KING and SEDORE were found, apparently shot to death, in her sport utility vehicle south of Peterborough following a police chase.
"This guy obviously came for one thing and that was to kill all three of them," DICKSON/DIXON's father, Ken DICKSON/DIXON, said.
DICKSON/DIXON's father said it appears a phone call to his son's home from a colleague whom his son had just started dating may have set the tragic chain of events in motion early yesterday.
DICKSON/DIXON, 36, told his father SEDORE sounded distraught and wanted to meet him, so he decided to go see if everything was all right. He later described to his father a chilling scene.
Upon arriving at the parking lot outside the A and P store at Wellington and Commissioners roads about 1: 40 a.m., he approached the woman's vehicle when a man hopped out, armed with a gun.
The man fired, the bullet ripping through one side of DICKSON/DIXON's stomach and out the other, then through the window of his Jeep, he told his father.
"If he didn't turn (his body,) he'd be a dead man," Ken DICKSON/DIXON said after visiting his son in the hospital. "A gunshot wound to the stomach, you're a dead man."
Remarkably, Ed DICKSON/DIXON told his father he jotted down the licence plate number as the vehicle drove off.
Within an hour, SEDORE's apartment on the second floor of a quaint Hyman Street home was swarming with police officers whose dramatic arrival stunned neighbours.
Durham regional officers, east of Toronto, were on alert for SEDORE's sport utility vehicle in connection with the London shooting and would soon be following it.
About 4: 45 a.m. yesterday, the Ontario Provincial Police was asked to follow the sport utility vehicle as it travelled north on Highway 115, which runs from Highway 401 to Peterborough, SEDORE's home town.
The sport utility vehicle drove over a police spike belt and went into a ditch, about 10 kilometres south of Peterborough. SEDORE and a man found inside were dead of apparent gunshot wounds.
Police sources told Sun Media the dead man in the sport utility vehicle is Ray KING, 41.
A neighbour, who described SEDORE as a "wonderful" person, said the teacher had been dating a man named Ray.
Having dramatically changed his appearance -- dropping 30 pounds and getting a new haircut -- he was visiting her in London this weekend, the neighbour said.
Officers from the Ontario Provincial Police and city police were at SEDORE's apartment for much of yesterday, taking away a slew of items including her computer, a neighbour said.
SEDORE's birth mother, who only met her now-grown daughter three years ago, was stunned by yesterday's tragedy.
"There's no words to say how I feel," Johanna YATEMAN said when contacted at her Peterborough home. "I feel great, great loss."
The Special Investigations Unit, which probes any civilian death involving police, is investigating the case.
"This is a tragic circumstance and there's a lot to be done," the Special Investigations Unit's lead investigator, Allan EATON, said.
Ken DICKSON/DIXON, who travelled to London from Detroit during the weekend for a family Christmas party, said his son was conscious but struggling in the aftermath of his close call. "He's starting the goofy stuff -- 'I should have called the police (before going),' " he said.
Several teachers at Ashley Oaks, reached at their homes yesterday, declined comment.
A huge swath of the parking lot at the busy south-end plaza -- which houses several restaurants and a busy grocery store -- was taped off for hours as officers scoured around DICKSON/DIXON's green Jeep, a bullet hole clearly visible in its side window.
Shoppers coming in and out of the A and P were stunned by the scene.
"This city is getting bad," said one elderly woman. "You've got to have eyes in the back of your head."
DICKSON/DIXON's shooting happened fewer than 24 hours after the death of Anthony BRUN in an Old South home a few blocks away. A man [later identified as Gordon Tyler McCURDY] has been charged with second-degree murder in the 24-year-old's death.
What Happened
Late Saturday Night: Londoner Ed DICKSON/DIXON gets a distraught-sounding call from a fellow teacher at Ashley Oaks elementary school. He goes to meet her at the A and P store parking lot at Wellington and Commissioners roads, arriving about 1: 30 a.m. yesterday.
A man with a gun exits the woman's vehicle and fires a shot that rips through DICKSON/DIXON's stomach. The vehicle takes off. Wounded, DICKSON/DIXON jots down the licence plate and calls police.
Yesterday, 4: 45 a.m.: Durham Regional Police ask Peterborough Ontario Provincial Police to intercept an sport utility vehicle, wanted in a London investigation, along Highway 115, which extends north from the 401 toward Peterborough.
The sport utility vehicle runs over a police spike belt south of Hwy. 7A and ends up in a ditch, 10 km south of Peterborough.
Ontario Provincial Police find the bodies of a man and a woman Ray KING of Belleville and London teacher Angela SEDORE -- in the sport utility vehicle. They appear to have been shot to death. The sport utility vehicle is registered to SEDORE.

KORTE, Johan Eljas Kalervo (April 8, 1924-January 3, 2007)
After making a valiant 3 month effort to recover from the effects of a raumatic ruptured aneurism, John passed gently into his own 'good night' on January 3rd. 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

KING- PINSENT, Charmion (July 25, 1925-January 6, 2007)
Much beloved wife of 44 years to Gordon PINSENT, Mom to Leah PINSENT, and Mother-in-law to Peter KELEGHAN, Charmion passed peacefully in Toronto last Saturday. Acknowledged as a grand doyenne of Canadian theatre, Charm was a graduate of The Bishop Strachan School and the University of Toronto. She was a star performer in the inaugural days of the U of T's Hart House Theatre, where, her 1947 performance in the title role of Saint_Joan was called 'luminous' by The Globe And Mail. She went on to become one of the founding members of Muskoka's Straw Hat Players as well as Toronto's Crest Theatre where she performed in over 20 productions including Chekhov's Three Sisters opposite Kate Reid. In 1990 she played opposite Kate Reid again in a Hart House revival of Arsenic and Old Lace. She was a member of The Stratford Festival for several seasons starting in 1958 as Lady Percy in Henry IV, and Hermione in A Winter's Tale in 1959. She appeared in countless stage productions worldwide including the Broadway production of Love and Liable directed by Tyrone Guthrie. Forever passionate about nurturing stage and television production in Canada she refused several offers for contract work in Los Angeles, New York and England, and chose instead to live and work in the country she loved. Charmion originated the role of Jessica in the hit Canadian play Jitters, and for 6 years was Mrs. Gruenwald in the Canadian Broadcasting Corporation radio series Rumours And Boarders. In 1962, Charm decided to give a young actor named Gordon PINSENT a break when she allowed him to star opposite her in the Crest Theatre Production of The Mad Woman Of Chaillot. Decades later their love graced and matured a touring production of Love Letters. A few years ago she appeared with her daughter Leah in the Tarragon Theatre's production of Emphysema, both of them portraying Louise Brooks at different ages. Her televison credits include featured roles in The Newsroom, The Promise, Twitch City, Last Night, Wind At My Back and Anne Of Green Gables. Her husband Gordon proudly directed her in a Canadian Broadcasting Corporation movie of the week entitled 'Once' where she won critical acclaim. Most recently Charm appeared as Maria in Soulpepper's production of Uncle Vanya and this spring was to remount her role in Soulpepper's hugely popular production of Thornton Wilder's - Our Town. To the very end Charm stood up for the creative arts in Canada. She was a steadfast believer in the creative spirit of this country, it's culture and it's actors. Forever sympathetic to the life of actors in Canada her cry was always 'For Christ's sake get on with it-and be proud'. Of losing her Mom, Leah has also lost her best friend. Of her sparkling eyes Gordon says of his wife, 'I hope you all have as great a love as we've had, if not go and find it.' In lieu of flowers, Charm requests donations be made to The Actor's Fund of Canada. A private family funeral will be followed by a memorial to be announced at a later date. She will be hugely missed.

Charmion KING, Actress: (1925-2007)
The grande dame of Canadian theatre was known for her dynamic stage presence, writes Sandra MARTIN
By Sandra MARTIN, Page S9
In a career that spanned 60 years on stage, radio, television and film, Charmion KING was known for her dynamic stage presence, her throaty laugh, her beauty, her dedication to the theatre, and her professionalism. Of all playwrights she loved Chekhov the best and no wonder, for she delivered many of her best performances in his work.
"She was the grande dame of Canadian Theatre," Albert SCHULTZ, artistic director of The Soulpepper Theatre in Toronto, said yesterday. Ms. KING joined the company in its third season (2000) to play a character in Noël Coward's Present Laughter. "We needed one of those great dames who could come on stage and convince you that she could function under a couple of martinis and be as witty as the next person in the room and bring with her a great aristocratic bearing and great wit and elegance -- and that was Charm," he said.
The only child of Charles KING, a businessman who worked for Neilsen's (and was called The Candy Man, according to his granddaughter Leah) and his wife Amabel (née REEVES,) Charmion KING spent her earliest years in The Beach area of Toronto in a house fronting the boardwalk. Even as a five-year-old, she dreamed of becoming an actress. After the family moved to Forest Hill, she attended Bishop Strachan, the private girls' school, where she often played male roles in plays. In the summers she went to Tanamakoon, the girls' camp where the late Dora Mavor Moore had begun teaching musical theatre in the 1930s.
She enrolled in University College at the University of Toronto in the early 1940s, where she acted in college productions. In 1944, The Globe and Mail reported that she had been offered a screen test by Warner Brothers after talent scouts for the film studio had seen her perform in Thunder Rock. The 19-year-old star of the University College Players' Guild had declined, saying "this is just a school play."
Her best work was probably done at the Hart House Theatre under the direction of Robert GILL, an American actor who had worked at the Cleveland Playhouse. At the time, only men were allowed to use Hart House, the recreational and athletic facility that had been given to the university by the Massey family, but the theatre was run by a different administration, one that welcomed women on its stage after the war.
Mr. GILL, who headed Hart House Productions, was an "enormous influence," Ms. KING told Susan LAWRENCE in 2002 for an article in the University of Toronto magazine. "He taught me professional behaviour as an actress." In her most memorable role at university, she played the title role in Saint Joan at Hart House Theatre in 1947, the year she graduated. "Her performance of Joan," The Globe and Mail critic wrote the following morning, according to Hart House records, "is a luminous portrayal, instinct with an inner fire of truth and spiritual beauty, and exquisite in its shadings of emotion and execution."
From Hart House and a year of graduate work in English literature, she did summer stock in New York, and then helped found the Straw Hat Players in 1948 with Murray and Donald DAVIS, two brothers who had been part of the Hart House theatre gang. The company, which included Eric HOUSE, Ted FOLLOWS and Barbara HAMILTON, toured Muskoka and Port Carling and the border region of the U.S. for several summers. "In a way it was the best time I ever had on the stage," Ms. KING told The Globe in 1961. "We were 10 ambitious, idealistic youngsters who thought we were building Canadian theatre and, perhaps, we were."
The DAVIS brothers and their sister Barbara CHILCOTT went on to open The Crest Theatre in a renovated cinema on Mount Pleasant Road in Toronto in 1954. At The Crest she played Masha (with Kate Reid) in Chekhov's The Three Sisters, Madame Ranevskaya in The Cherry Orchard and Lady Utterword in Heartbreak House, among other roles in that theatre's ambitious and groundbreaking history.
She worked in England in the very early 1950s but returned to Canada to work in television on the fledgling Canadian Broadcasting Corporation network and at the equally neophyte Stratford Festival, appearing as Hermione in The Winter's Tale and Lady Percy in Henry IV, Part 1 in 1958. (She returned to the Festival in 1982 as a senior member of the Shakespeare 3 company and acted in All's Well That Ends Well and A Midsummer Night's Dream.)
The following year she performed on Broadway in Robertson Davies's Love and Libel, directed by Tyrone Guthrie, and toured in a principal role in Love and Libel in Detroit, Boston and New York.
In 1962, she went back to The Crest to play opposite a Newfoundland actor named Gordon PINSENT in The Madwoman of Chaillot. They married on November 2 of that year, a creative and romantic partnership that lasted more than 44 years. After her wedding, Ms. KING told The Toronto Star that she "was doing Orpheus Descending at the Crest and when it ended I said I didn't want to work for a long, long time. I was tired." Their daughter, actress Leah PINSENT, was born on September 20, 1968. The family moved to Los Angeles in the 1970s where Mr. PINSENT (after the end of the television show Quentin Durgens, M.P., in which he had starred) was writing and finding backers for his film The Rowdyman.
"She was my best friend," Leah PINSENT said yesterday about her mother. "Other than when I had to go away, we talked every day. She was giving and kind and warm and funny and smart and a great cook."
After having retired for most of a decade to spend more time as a wife and mother, Ms. KING ended her self-imposed retreat by appearing in the Ethel Barrymore role in The Royal Family, a comedy by George S. Kaufman and Edna Ferber, at the Shaw Festival in 1972.
She performed steadily after that on television and radio (playing Aunt Josephine on Canadian Broadcasting Corporation-television's Anne of Green Gables and appearing on The Newsroom, Twitch City and Wind at My Back, and playing the voice of Mrs. Gruenwald in the Canadian Broadcasting Corporation Radio series Rumours and Boarders). She appeared in film (Who Has Seen the Wind? and Nobody Waved Goodbye) and on stage, notably as Jessica Logan, a temperamental actress trying to make a comeback, in the premiere production of David French's showbusiness comedy Jitters in Toronto and at the Long Wharf Theatre in New Haven in 1979, a role that she revived in Toronto in 1986.
In 1990, she again performed opposite Kate Reid in a Hart House revival of Arsenic and Old Lace. In 1998 she starred in the Tarragon Theatre production of Janet Munsil's Emphysema (A Love Story) in which she shared the stage with her daughter Leah, as they both played actress Louise Brooks at different ages. Although Ms. KING had been a heavy smoker, she had successfully stopped for a decade until the director asked them to smoke "real" cigarettes on stage, according to her daughter. Alas, she was hooked again.
Ms. PINSENT said it was "fabulous" working with her mother because she was "always a very generous woman. There was no ego; she always wanted to serve the writer and the theatre in the best way she possibly could."
In the last several years Ms. KING performed regularly at The Soulpepper Theatre in Toronto, appearing in Present Laughter in 2001, as Maria in Chekhov's Uncle Vanya and in Jean Genet's The Maids in 2002. "We called her at home and we got her," Mr. SCHULTZ said about casting her for the first time. "She always brought such humanity and elegance and wit to everything she did. She was a pleasure to have around."
Asked a few years ago by an interviewer whether she could imagine retiring, Ms. KING said absolutely not. "Being an actor is something like being at university. It opens your mind and your soul and makes you tap into yourself." Her last role was as Mrs. Soames in Thornton Wilder's Our Town at Soulpepper in 2006 and she was planning to reprise the role this spring.
"To the very end, Charm stood up for the creative arts in Canada," her family said in a statement this week. She was a steadfast believer in the creative spirit of this country, its culture&hellip her cry was always… get on with it and be proud."
Charmion KING was born in Toronto on July 25, 1925. She died in Toronto of complications from emphysema on Saturday. She was 81. She is survived by her husband Gordon PINSENT, her daughter Leah PINSENT and her son-in-law Peter KELEGHAN. There will be a private family cremation, followed by a memorial service at a later date.

KING, Alan McLeod (1919-2007)
Alan KING was born August 27, 1919 in Brandon, Manitoba. He passed away in Montreal on July 13, 2007 after a long battle with the horror that is Alzheimer's.
Alan was a man of energy and vision. As a teenager he learned ham radio and that opened up the world around him. With his radio skills he gravitated towards aviation and became a pilot. He flew with Ferry Command during World War 2, ferrying new aircraft from America's factories to troops around the world. After the war, he settled in Montreal and worked as a commercial pilot for Trans-Canada Airlines. His love of invention then took him to work with his uncle in the early days of the vending machine. From this was born VendKING International in 1947. VendKING (now VKI Technologies/ Filterfresh) grew to become a world leader in coffee machines with customers worldwide. VKI/Filterfresh was sold to Van Houtte in 1998 and is still a thriving company to this day.
In the early 1950's he met an angel named Geraldine Audrey MacKINNON. They married shortly thereafter and enjoyed 32 magical years together before her untimely death in 1984. Alan and Gerry shared their lives with their four children and their grandchildren. They enjoyed travel, sports, theatre, ballet and music. They co-founded The Quebec and Canadian Associations for Children with Learning Disabilities. They were also instrumental in the growth and development of Centennial Academy, the little school that has shown it could - Go Centennial, Go! Alan was a long-time member of Rotary. He was a dreamer and schemer, a lover of sailing, skiing, travel and adventure.
Predeceased by Geraldine KING (MacKINNON.) Survived by his four children, Sandra, Helen, Paul and Brian. And his eleven grandchildren, Michael, Andrew, Stephanie, Elizabeth, Christopher, Andre, Alex, Jason, Emma, Joshua and Danielle.
Special thanks to the caring staff of Place Kensington and Saint Margaret's, and Velma, Kathy and France. Thanks also to Orn Arnason, Fred Hooghiemstra (deceased), Ogawa- san/Toshiba, Christian Pouliot, Alan Suitor and Ray McManus for their Friendship and devoted belief in the 'mad inventor' of the world's first single-cup coffee brewer.

Told he was too old to be a pilot, he nevertheless became an ace
Toronto life-insurance salesman who joined the Royal Canadian Air Force at 26 took command of a squadron and was personally decorated by the king at Buckingham Palace
By Matt HARTLEY, Page S10
For Charles MAGWOOD, "shooting a line" was something a respectable war veteran just didn't do. The buyer for Simpson-Sears abhorred anyone who told tall tales that glorified the violence and brutality of the Second World War. For his part, the former Royal Canadian Air Force Spitfire pilot rarely spoke of his own experiences, even though he had been decorated for gallantry by George VI.
A talented and fearless flier, Mr. MAGWOOD was credited with destroying five enemy aircraft and damaging 3½ others while serving with Nos. 403 and 421 Squadrons in England. At one point, he shot down three Nazi planes in two days -- something he never told his children.
Mr. MAGWOOD grew up on Dovercourt Road in what was then Toronto's west end. His surgeon father was the head of obstetrics at Western Hospital and his mother was a well-known pianist and one of the first musicians in Canada to record for RCA Victor. Charles learned to play the piano at an early age and had a keen eye for mathematics.
As a teenager, he developed into a star athlete at the University of Toronto Schools, an academically elite boys school where he excelled in wrestling, basketball and track and field. He set a record in the 220-yard dash that stood for 24 years until it was bested by someone with the same name -- his nephew, Charles Johnston MAGWOOD. Evenings were spent learning sonatas on the piano or playing basketball at the Young Men's Christian Association across the street from home.
After graduating with a bachelor's degree in commerce from the University of Toronto, Mr. MAGWOOD went to work selling group insurance at Canada Life. There, he spied a red-haired secretary named Marion Cecilia KING, who worked in another department on his floor. He engineered a meeting after discovering they had a mutual acquaintance, and a few days later, a "chance" encounter on the street set the course of a long relationship.
Their romance was interrupted by war. Even though he was 26, Mr. MAGWOOD enlisted in the air force, where most of his fellow recruits were many years his junior.
Initially considered too old to fly, he was assigned to observer training. However, it wasn't long before the demand for pilots pushed him into the cockpit of a Spitfire. After training in Llandow, Wales, he was posted to Royal Canadian Air Force 403 "Wolf" Squadron at Martlesham Heath airfield in Suffolk.
On April 4, 1943, the squadron was assigned to escort a formation of U.S. bombers sent to attack a German factory on the outskirts of Paris. Along the way, it was jumped by a flock of Luftwaffe Me 109s and Focke-Wulf 190s. Mr. MAGWOOD attacked a group of the enemy fighters at close range, destroying two and forcing another to retreat. Each of his kills was recorded between the pale blue covers of his logbook. Every mission and every battle was recounted in painstaking detail. Small swastikas denoted hits, larger, circled swastikas were reserved for confirmed kills.
His preferred method of attack was to get in as close to the enemy as possible. An entry from April 17, 1943, the day he shot down two Germans, reads: "Blasted one with cannon shells in engine cockpit and fuselage from 500 yds and he spun down to the left pouring grey-white smoke. Chased two more back towards French coast."
About the kill the day before, he wrote: "It was one of those you dream of getting and before they knew what happened we got 5 destroyed, 1 prob. and 1 dam. I opened on mine from about 150 yds and he completely disintegrated, leaving only a black cloud."
The entries are marked by a large, dark swastikas ringed by nickel-sized circles.
On another mission to escort 60 B-17 bombers to France's Cherbourg Peninsula, he and another pilot attacked a German fighter: "[We] jumped a FW 190 out of the sun and plastered him from 350-10 yds., narrowly avoiding collision. He went down almost vertically, pouring white smoke. Last seen at 5-6,000 feet in same attitude, pouring black smoke. Given probable; shared letter of commendation for our efforts."
Not long afterward, he described having some "good fun with 20 FW 190s and Me 109s… My section peeled off on 4 190s -- mine a flamer. Later saw FW 190 coming up fast on 3 Spits about 1,000 yards on port. Dashed over and knocked him down as he was firing… bits and pieces came back from cannon burst of 3½ sec. He rolled over and went down vertically. Saw him at about 5,000 feet in same attitude, but can only claim a damaged."
Like many fighter pilots, Mr. MAGWOOD would have received a higher score if not for the scrupulously high reporting standards set by the Royal Canadian Air Force and allied air forces. Regulations required that a kill be confirmed by other pilots or observers on the ground, and then undergo scrutiny - he may have downed as many as 10 enemy aircraft. Even so, his five official kills qualified him as an ace.
Interestingly, the "old man" of the squadron never took a single hit in about 200 missions, while other pilots as much as 10 years his junior failed to return from their first sortie.
Mr. MAGWOOD became a mainstay of the squadron, eventually rising to the rank of wing commander. He even designed the squadron's crest, with the words "Stalk and Strike" emblazoned across the bottom. On July 13, 1943, he was summoned to Buckingham Palace, where, in recognition of his three kills in two days, the king pinned on him the Distinguished Flying Cross.
In October of 1943, Mr. MAGWOOD was transferred to Royal Canadian Air Force 421 Squadron, where he took over as commanding officer and continued to lead missions. Two months later, he was grounded because of serious sinus problems that were probably caused by flying at high altitude; he never again went aloft in combat. He remained at his desk job, champing at the bit, until 1945.
After returning from the war, he and Marion were married at Timothy Eaton Memorial Church on October 5, 1945. They had three children. Mr. MAGWOOD returned to Canada Life for a time but soon left to work for a friend at the Robert Simpson Co. in Toronto, where he eventually became a buyer for Simpson-Sears catalogue. Because of his job, the family moved often, to the likes of London, Ontario, and Montreal, but eventually returned to Toronto.
More than anything, Mr. MAGWOOD was a family man who enjoyed nothing more than spending time with his children. "He travelled so much, but when he came home he wanted to catch up," daughter Mary recalled. "He'd ask me how I was liking my ballet lessons&hellip he was a very loving and understanding man."
However, he was haunted by memories of the war. son John remembered being awakened at night by the sound of screaming; it was his father having nightmares. When John asked about the screaming over breakfast, his father refused to discuss it, but evidently reconsidered. A few mornings later, he looked at his 10-year-old son and felt compelled to explain. The screaming, he said, was over letters he had to write as wing commander - it was his job to tell families back home that their sons had been killed.
"It was still eating him up inside," John recalled. His father looked relieved to have talked about the dreams, and John told him he was not to have any more nightmares. John never heard the screams again.
While Mr. MAGWOOD's logbook reveals much methodically recorded information, he didn't share it with his family. The horrors of war just weren't something he wanted to talk about.
"For Dad, it was inappropriate to dwell on the details," son Stephen said. "The war was a nasty piece of business that everybody was engaged in, and a kill was just an unfortunate circumstance of war. Claiming a kill was much less important."
A savvy money manager, Mr. MAGWOOD returned from the war with nearly $10,000 to his name and continued to invest wisely through the years. By all accounts, he always knew a deal when there was one to be had. On one occasion, he took the family on a road trip across the United States in their 1964 Buick Wildcat. Arriving on the West Coast, he received an offer for the car he couldn't refuse. He sold it and the family flew back to Toronto. An astute real-estate investor, he often owned homes that were grander than those of his bosses.
In 1974, he retired from Sears to run a furniture-design business. Nine years later, he gave that up to spend more time with his family.
Charles MacLachlan MAGWOOD was born in Toronto on November 27, 1913. He died of pneumonia at Sunnybrook War Veterans Residence in Toronto on July 9, 2007. He was 93. He is survived by his wife Marion and children John, Stephen and Mary. He also leaves seven grandchildren and three great-grandchildren.

KING, Reginald Ford
Reginald Ford KING passed away on November 5th, 2007. Dearly loved, and a man of integrity and kindness. Born in Port Union, Newfoundland, in 1927. In 1955, Reg moved his young family to southern Ontario, where he felt there would be more opportunity. He found work in the accounting department of the Hamilton based steel and industrial supply company Wilkinson and Kompass and stayed for 35 years, retiring as President and General Manager, in 1990. As a family man, he hugged his sons often, nurtured his three children to succeed as entrepreneurs, and ensured his wife was financially independent of him. At the office, he practiced employment equity before these principals were mainstream. An ethos of sharing credit liberally, and assuming responsibility when things were difficult, served him well. Ideologically conservative for most of his life, during retirement, his views evolved to the centre. He supported same sex marriage and came to feel governments should invest more in social programs. Despite his health challenges and loss of Elizabeth (Betty), his wife of 53 years in 2003, he lived his final years independently and positively, charming all those whom he met to his final days. Beloved by his children and their partners: John (Teresa,) Michigan; Susan (Lu KORTE,) Ottawa; Gary (Laura EAGLES), Ottawa; and nephew Don BRAGG, Hamilton. He also leaves seven cherished grandchildren: Ryan, Matthew, Sean, Vashti, and Dylan KING, and Quincy and Jesse KORTE- KING. Also mourning his passing are his sister Edna CARSON, Washington, and brother Dan (Gloria), Toronto. Following his wishes, a private family service will be held. Thank you to Don, the wonderful neighbours and health professionals who cared for Reg in recent years and months. For those wishing to make a memorial contribution, donations to the Arthritis Society or Shepherds of Good Hope would be appreciated by the family.

OWEN, Lucille Yvonne Fortier
Volunteer, activist, fighter, role model, friend, wife, lover of the theatre, night owl, member of the Book Babes Book Club. Born April 23, 1944, in Favourable Lake, Ontario Died July 28 in Toronto of cancer, aged 63.
By Maggi REDMONDS, Audrey KING and Diane Murray BARKER, Page L8
For many years, Lucille and a friend celebrated August 10, 1952, as the marker of their shared destiny - their contact with polio.
A happy childhood with her loving family was punctuated with numerous medical interventions. Since life in a wheelchair made the local secondary school inaccessible, Lucille completed high school in the United States. Although unable to continue her formal education, she was extremely well-read, curious and astute.
In 1973, Lucille married activist and Ryerson English professor Bill OWEN. She greatly enjoyed the years they spent at the University of Kentucky, where Bill earned a PhD.
During that time she renewed her Friendship with Margaret STATON, whom she had met as a teenager at Toronto's Lyndhurst Lodge rehabilitation centre.
In 1994, Margaret named Lucille to the initial board of her Ethel Louise Armstrong Foundation (named after Margaret's grandmother), created to "promote… the inclusion of people with disabilities."
Overcoming a fear of flying, Lucille made numerous trips to California for board meetings. In 2004, the foundation honoured her with the Lucille Fortier Owen Scholarship.
In Chicago in 1981, Lucille and a friend attended a conference at which post-polio issues came to the fore. Together they nudged the Ontario March of Dimes to re-establish a post-polio program.
Lucille championed accessible health care for women with disabilities and always provided excellent analyses of the politics of disability and other social change campaigns.
When diagnosed with terminal cancer in 2001, Lucille became an informed decision maker in her own care. She astonished her palliative care team by long outlasting her initial prognosis. Lucille personally organized a note and a gift to be given to each member of her support circle after her death.
When Bill died in 2005, Lucille established the Bill and Lucille Owen scholarship at Ryerson University. Advisers had persuaded her to add her name, to provide a role model for female students and to underline her part in "their lifetime work to secure social justice through public policy."
Lucille's legacy is vastly greater than our loving memories and scholarships. By her persistence, through her actions and in her treatment of others, Lucille Owen lived her conviction that everyone must be treated equitably.
Maggi REDMONDS, Audrey KING and Diane Murray BARKER are Lucille's Friends.

WILMOT, Elizabeth Gurley (née DURSO)
Slipped away peacefully on November 20th, 2007 in the arms of her cherished and devoted daughters, Gayle (wife of Kim DAVIDSON) and Kimberly, after a long and accomplished life lived with strength, courage, tenacity, integrity, compassion and generosity. A native of Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, and a proud graduate of Carnegie Mellon University, Gurley was the oldest child of Eva and Mike DURSO. She was predeceased by her beloved husband, Frederick T. WILMOT and by her siblings Genevieve, Eugene and Richard. She is survived by her sister Audrey KING (Dr. Robert L. KING), numerous nieces and nephews and by her three wonderful grandchildren, Kirby, Lisa and Chili DAVIDSON, whom she adored and who brought her unending pride, joy and comfort. After an impressive and fulfilling career as a professional dietician in Pittsburgh and later in Atlanta, Gurley devoted her energies enthusiastically to full-time motherhood and community volunteerism. When Fred died suddenly in 1973, leaving her a single mother of two teenagers, she rose bravely to the challenge of raising them emotionally and financially to maturity and independence. Their achievements and happiness are a testament to her success. Gayle and Kimberly wish to express their profound gratitude to our angel and personal caregiver, Juanita Mallari, who helped us to maintain Gurley's quality of life after her strokes in 2003. Many thanks also to Gurley's very loyal Friends who made her days more pleasant by visiting her regularly. Lastly, thanks to Virginia Clark Weir of the Freeman Centre for Palliative Care, whose professionalism and compassion helped to ease Gurley's final days. Gurley was fond of saying that she had lived her life like chapters in a book. Now that the final page has been written and the back cover closed, we can all only be grateful for having been a part of such a wonderful story. We shall miss her love, wisdom, guidance and her warm, sweet smile. At Gurley's request, there will be no visitation, funeral or memorial service. For those who wish to commemorate Gurley's life and it's conclusion in a way that would have pleased her, donations would be preferred in lieu of flowers, and may be made to The Aphasia Institute, the Heart and Stroke Foundation, the Canadian Cancer Society, or the Freeman Centre for Palliative Care at North York General Hospital. Condolences may be sent to www.etouch.ca. Arrangements have been entrusted to The Simple Alternative Funeral Centre (416) 441-1580.
