Ontario crashes claim 12
The driver in a Highway 402 crash that killed two and injured six faces careless driving count.
By Jane SIMS, Sun Media, Mon., September 3, 2007
Only part way through the last long weekend of summer, at least 12 people have died -- two in the London area -- in crashes on Ontario highways.
Yesterday, police identified two people from Illinois killed when their minivan rolled Saturday on Highway 402, west of London, a crash that also injured six members of their extended family in the van.
Poonambehi PATEL, 65, died at the scene, while Pushpaben AMIN, 69, was declared dead at the hospital, Middlesex Ontario Provincial Police said.
From McHenry, Illinois, in suburban Chicago, the Toronto-bound family had been travelling east on the 402, east of Longwoods Road, when the crash occurred.
Police said the van struck the shoulder, went out of control and rolled after the driver tried to pass a vehicle.
The family relationships of the victims weren't immediately clear, but Ontario Provincial Police said the two weren't a married couple.
The driver, Roopal AMIN, 35, was charged with careless driving. She was treated at hospital and released.
Four males who were in the van and one woman remained in a London hospital yesterday with the 49-year-old woman and one man, 54, in critical condition.
The other males included an eight-year-old and an 18-year-old, both stable in hospital with non-life-threatening injuries, and a 44-year-old whose condition police said was upgraded from critical.
The van had eight occupants but only seven seatbelts. Only the driver and front passenger were buckled in, the Ontario Provincial Police said.
Six occupants, including the two who died, were thrown from the van.
Elsewhere, a man, 53, died as he tried to help a 19-year-old who'd crashed his car on a rural road near Kitchener.
The older man was killed when a volunteer firefighter en route to the accident also lost control and crashed. The firefighter was unhurt, while the teen was taken to hospital with serious injuries.
Saturday, a head-on collision in Muskoka left two people dead and a third seriously hurt. The crash took place on Highway 169 near Bala in Muskoka, Ontario Provincial Police said.
The injured person was flown to a Toronto hospital. No names were released.
"It is shaping up to be a tough long weekend," Ontario Provincial Police Chief Supt. Bill GRODZINSKI said yesterday.
With 12 road deaths this long weekend, the Ontario Provincial Police was bracing for today, the last day of the Labour Day weekend.

PATEL, Doctor Rajni
A family physician who practiced medicine in Tilbury, Chatham and London, Ontario for over 35 years, passed away November 20th of a heart attack at his home in London. He was 64. Born October 28th, 1943 in Musoma, Tanzania, Raj realized at an early age he was destined to follow in the footsteps of his father Doctor Sumobi PATEL, a renowned physician in the country. From the age of 9 onwards, he assisted his father during his various rounds serving the constituents of the country. In 1959, he left Tanzania for London, England to finish his high school education. His passion and desire to help those afflicted with various maladies led him to attend medical school at the College of Physicians and Surgeons in Dublin, Ireland in the early 1960s. Always the adventurous type, his decision as to where to do his residency was finalized during the early hours in the morning at a Dublin pub. When one of his colleagues wagered ten pounds that he should go to Canada to do his residency, he spent one night thinking about it, purchased his ticket to Ottawa the next day, and collected his wager that evening. After spending two years shuttling between Ottawa and London, England, Raj settled in London, Ontario in early 1971. Under the tutelage of Doctor Roland CARSON, his mentor and closest friend Rajni prepared for a career in pediatrics. In 1972, he met Frances BYRNE, an Operating Room nurse at Victoria Hospital. Soon thereafter the two of them began dating and eventually married on June 23rd, 1973. In 1975, they moved to Tilbury, Ontario where he set up a family practice with Doctor Aidan BRADY. Over the next 28 years he skillfully practiced medicine in the Chatham-Kent area. During his tenure he served as the President of the Chatham-Kent Medical Association, and was instrumental in facilitating the Continuing Medical Education programs. In 2004, he reunited professionally with Doctor CARSON and opened a walk-in clinic in London, Ontario. Both Raj and Fran loved to travel as well as to host various social gatherings with colleagues and Friends. He is survived by two sons, Anil, of Toronto, Ontario, and Ashwin, of Gunnison, Colorado; two daughters, Alisha of Toronto, Ontario; and Alexis of Toronto, Ontario; and granddaughter Hannah; predeceased by two brothers Suresh and Kurit; a sister, Hansa of London, England, and two brothers, Ashwin of London, England, and Satish of London, England. He is reunited with his loving wife Fran PATEL, who passed away of cancer at the age of 52. Donations can be made to the Canadian Cancer Society or the Heart and Stroke Foundation. A fitting tribute to Raj's life will take place at the London Convention Center, Friday November 30th. Doors open at 4 p.m. Tributes and toasts from 6-7: 30 p.m. followed by music and cocktail reception.

PATIENCE, Ellen S.
Loyal friend, grandmother, mother, war bride, refugee, survivor. Born August 22, 1922, in Fuerth, Germany. Died September 28 in London, Ontario, of cancer, aged 85.
By Douglas CORNISH, Page L8
Ellen and her parents, German Jews, survived the Holocaust but lost most of their family.
At 16 she escaped to England, where she met her future husband, Alwyn PATIENCE, a Southern Ontario farmer (and my father's cousin.)
After the end of the Second World War, Ellen immigrated to Canada and his farm, where they raised three children.
When Ellen first saw the farm it was a mess. She immediately sold the few chickens, horses and cows and told her husband to raise pigs. They were successful.
The farm had been in the family for generations. Since 1908, our family has held an annual picnic in Southern Ontario. We always gathered at the farm afterward, the children hiding in the silo, playing in the barn and rolling in the hay.
When Ellen received a new computer, a gift from one of her lawyer sons, she planned to compose her thoughts on the Holocaust and her Jewish experience. Since marrying her wonderful husband and moving to a small farming community, she said, her Jewishness got lost somewhere.
She had decided not to raise her children in the Jewish religion, living in conservative Southern Ontario of the late 1950s and 1960s, but she made sure they were aware of their heritage.
So Ellen had lost herself twice - first by marrying a gentile, then by not bringing up her children in the Jewish faith. She felt alienated from both the community where she lived and from her religious community. She was philosophically and spiritually alone.
After Ellen and her husband retired from farming they decided to take down the enormous barn and silo, sell the livestock and rent out the land. Even though they had given up farming, they left part of the barn wall standing as a symbol.
I once told Ellen, half in jest, that people should build bridges, not walls. She smiled, replying that sometimes people must build walls. Not to keep things out, she said, but to keep things in.
This two-metre-high wall extended for about 18 metres, made of solid stone and concrete. It was going to be Ellen's legacy, and would endure after her.
When Ellen's husband died a few years ago, she sold her small Ingersoll house and moved to a retirement home in Woodstock, Ontario
Ellen's wall was torn down when new owners bought the farm, but her courageous life of discipline, intellectual honesty and raising a fine educated family remains her monument. She never looked back in life.
Douglas CORNISH is a cousin of Ellen's.

Neighbours left in shock following murder-suicide
By Rob LAMBERTI, Sun Media, Thurs., October 18, 2007
Toronto -- Neighbours are stunned and shaken, but they understand Ed and Jessie KLING were suffering.
"It was unbelievable shock. I still don't want to believe it happened," next-door neighbour Jim PATSAKOS said.
"You would never think this would happen to these people. It would never cross your mind."
Jessie, 81, who was bedridden and suffering from cancer, which claimed her sister this past summer, was found shot to death in a bedroom Tuesday night.
Her husband, Ed, 83, a Second World War veteran and retired teacher who was suffering from a heart condition, was found dead in the garage of a self-inflicted gunshot wound.
Jessie's body was found by a daughter and police found Ed. The couple had three daughters and a son and several grandchildren.
One daughter, Susan, committed suicide about 20 years ago, said one neighbour.
The Klings were known for their colourful blooms in the small but well-kept flower beds, but neighbours said Ed didn't seem to take care of his precious flowers this summer as well as he did in summers past.
Neighbours didn't know anything about the long barrelled shotgun and handguns Toronto Police took out of the red brick bungalow.
Police also took a blood-soaked patio chair out of the garage.
"How are you going to survive when everything hits you?" asked a neighbour. "You can only feel sad for them."
But when they were well, they lit up the neighbourhood, say area residents.
"They were always out there in their garden and talking to everybody who walked by," PATSAKOS said.
But they were slowing down, the neighbour of 20 years said. "They were both failing."
PATSAKOS said he spoke with the couple's son Barry, of California, during Thanksgiving, who said his elderly parents were "going downhill pretty quick."
Nevertheless, there was no indication of a pending tragedy, he said.

Dead trucker called hero in needless crash
By Canadian Press, Wed., June 20, 2007
Toronto -- A car can be as dangerous as "a loaded gun," and as much as the government has done to crack down on street racing and reckless driving, the responsibility ultimately lies in the hands of those behind the wheel, Premier Dalton McGuinty said yesterday.
McGuinty was commenting on a Monday morning crash on the busy Highway 400 that killed a truck driver and snarled commuter traffic until late that night.
Three men face a total of 11 charges in the crash, in which police blame speed and dangerous driving.
David VIRGOE, 48, of Stroud, was identified yesterday as the driver of the tractor-trailer who died in the crash. VIRGOE leaves behind three children and five grandchildren.
Family members told the media VIRGOE was a very safe and experienced driver who drove that stretch of highway each day.
The crash was the third major accident in four days on the busy north-south highway, and the second fatal one.
"There is no excuse for this kind of tragedy to unfold on Ontario highways," McGuinty said.
"We'll continue to talk to our police and ask them what it is more that we might do to make our highways safer, but at the end of the day there's one individual who sits behind the wheel in a car. It's like a loaded gun," he said at an auto industry funding announcement.
Prabhjit MULTANI, 20, and Nauman NUSRAT, 19, the two men accused in VIRGOE's death, appeared in Barrie court yesterday and were remanded in custody pending a bail hearing set for Friday.
witnesses: said two or three cars were speeding and weaving in and out of traffic when one caused the tractor-trailer to lose control. The big rig ripped out a guardrail and careened back across the highway, tumbling down an embankment and into a ditch.
"This is happening every day on our highways and I hope our justice system pulls through and sends a message out," said Ontario Provincial Police Const. Dave WOODFORDE.
Drivers are hailing VIRGOE as a hero for veering away from traffic and saving lives in the process.
"That truck driver decided at some point in a split second that he was going to save the lives of at least a dozen people on that highway," said Brian PATTERSON of the Ontario Safety League.
"That guy's a hero."

'He became effortless in his greatness'
It was his experience under fire as an army medic serving in Italy during the Second World War that imbued him with a spiritual appreciation of humanity, writes Sandra MARTIN. He would later draw on it as one of Canada's finest classical actors
By Sandra MARTIN, Page S7
A man who could command a stage in any country and who chose to make his career in Canada, William HUTT was a formidable presence at the Stratford Festival since its founding in 1953, appearing in myriad roles from Prospero, Lear and Falstaff to Lady Bracknell in The Importance of Being Earnest. For fans, he made Shakespeare accessible, speaking in his homegrown voice rather than adopting plummy tones from across the Atlantic. For actors, he was a mentor, a friend and an avuncular presence, showing them how to inhabit a stage without hogging the limelight. And he did it all with generosity and panache. The stage was his home, and no stages were more familiar to him than those at Stratford, where he performed in 130 productions over 39 seasons.
"This is a historic moment in Canadian arts," Richard MONETTE, artistic director of the festival, said in an interview. "It is a cause of mourning for this loss and also a cause of great celebration because of his legacy. He was a great classical actor and he essayed all the great roles. He was equally at home with crowds as well as kings. He had a great range, everybody in the audience could relate to him - whether they were society people or farmers, he could appeal to them. He became effortless in his greatness."
William Ian deWitt HUTT was the middle of three children of Edward deWitt HUTT, a magazine editor, and Caroline Frances Havergal (née WOOD.) His mother suffered from septicemia after his birth, and was soon pregnant with her third child. Consequently, he spent long periods of time with an aunt and uncle in Hamilton. "My aunt belonged to Christ Church and they were doing a Christmas pageant. I was only 4 or 5 years old, but I wanted to be in it," he said later. He had only one line - "Beads for sale" - that he delivered looking directly at the audience. At that moment, he fell in love with performing.
During the Depression, his father's magazines failed and he was forced to sell insurance, a job he "loathed," and to move his wife and children into a home belonging to her family. Young Bill attended Vaughan Road Collegiate and then North Toronto Collegiate, performing occasionally in school productions, including a role as a policeman in The Pirates of Penzance. A gangly loner, he was socially awkward as a teenager; that's when he realized he was bisexual. Homosexuality was morally taboo and illegal in the 1930s, and that increased his sense of isolation from his family and his peers.
He did very poorly in high school and left without graduating in 1941 to enlist in the army and the 7th Light Field Ambulance Unit. He was 21 and, unlike many young men who dash off to war deluded by visions of glory, he "had no intention of shooting anybody," as he explained in an interview in his Stratford living room last Friday afternoon.
After going overseas, he saw a production of Arsenic and Old Lace in London with Sybil Thorndike and Lillian Braithwaite that enthralled him, but it was his experience as a medic that imbued him with a spiritual appreciation of humanity that he would draw on later as an actor. "You see a lot of death and dying and the one thing you realize is that the cheapest commodity on the market is one human life." He won the Military Medal for bravery and was promoted from corporal to sergeant after he volunteered to set up a first aid centre under heavy mortar fire just north of Cassino in Italy. He never liked talking about his heroism, explaining that "you just do what needs to be done, you don't think about it."
When he returned to Toronto in 1946, he marched into Exhibition Stadium and was told that his parents were sitting in the section of the stands marked H. When he saw his mother for the first time in five years, she looked at him blankly across a morbid divide of devastating experience, and said nothing, not even his name. "It haunted me for a while," he admitted on Friday.
He realized he "had to get on with my life," so he enrolled at the University of Toronto's Trinity College, which gave him a high-school equivalency based on his war service. He performed at the Hart House theatre, and graduated with a bachelor of arts degree in 1949.
By then, he had already gained experience in summer repertory and a season with Canadian Repertory Theatre in Ottawa. He also directed Little Theatre groups throughout Ontario and adjudicated for the Western Ontario Drama League from 1948 to 1952. When he heard that Tom PATTERSON was launching the Stratford Festival in 1953, he said he had to look up the place on a map. Although he thought Mr. PATTERSON was "out of his cotton-picking mind," he signed on and spent most of the next decade serving an apprenticeship in supporting roles such as Sir Robert Brackenbury and Captain Blunt in Richard III and Minister of State in All's Well That Ends Well in the festival's inaugural season, and Froth in Measure for Measure, Hortensio in The Taming of the Shrew and Leader of the Chorus in Oedipus Rex the following year, when he became the first recipient of the Tyrone Guthrie Award.
He was not an overnight sensation, waiting until after he was 40 to land his first major role at Stratford - Prospero in The Tempest - in the festival's 10th season in 1962. The following year, he dazzled critics and audiences with his sexually ambivalent portrayal of Pandarus in Troilus and Cressida.
Although the stage was his mainstay, Mr. HUTT also appeared in film and on television, notably as a port-soaked Sir John A. Macdonald in the 1974 Canadian Broadcasting Corporation-television production of Pierre Berton's The National Dream, a performance that earned him both a Genie and an Alliance of Canadian Cinema, Television and Radio Artists award. He also played the father in Robin Phillips's The Wars, based on the novel written by his friend, Timothy Findley. Mr. HUTT generally disliked the disjointed "bits and pieces" approach of filmmaking, complaining that it was antithetical to the process of developing a character and fleshing it out with other actors in the immediacy of a continuous theatrical performance. Nevertheless, he recently starred in six episodes of the television series Slings and Arrows, playing an aging actor performing Lear.
People were surprised when he was cast in the female role of Lady Bracknell in Oscar Wilde's The Importance of Being Earnest in 1975, but he made the character his own. He said he learned "stillness" from a comment by director Robin Phillips: "Lady Bracknell moves through a room without disturbing one speck of dust." Her towering feathered hat perched atop his 6-foot-2 frame made it awkward for him to move, and he resolved "never to move on stage, unless it improved on stillness." What he wanted to share with the audience was the fact that "thought conveys itself" through the stillness that precedes movement.
In 1979, he played the fool to Peter Ustinov's Lear, making way for the British actor's celebrity turn on the Stratford stage in a role that Mr. HUTT had already played twice. But it was Mr. HUTT's tragic death-haunted fool that drew the raves; according to backstage lore, Mr. Ustinov was "shaken" by his supporting actor's greatness, never thinking that "such an actor was here on this continent."
He had a dry spell at Stratford under John Hirsch, who was artistic director from 1981 to 1985, and only cast him in one role. He fared better under John Neville, but truly enjoyed a renaissance when Richard MONETTE became artistic director in 1994. By then, Mr. HUTT had become heavily involved in the Grand Theatre in nearby London, where Martha Henry was artistic director from 1988 to 1994, and had appeared at the rival Shaw Festival in Niagara-on-the-Lake in Man and Superman in 1989.
When Mr. HUTT received a Governor-General's Award for lifetime achievement in the performing arts in 1992, he couldn't accept in person because he was performing in A.R. Gurney's The Dining Room at the Grand. The following season, he had three major roles at Stratford: Falstaff in Shakespeare's The Merry Wives of Windsor, diplomat Harry Raymond in Timothy Findley's The Stillborn Lover (a play that Mr. Findley had written for Mr. HUTT and actress Martha Henry; Stratford reprised it in 1995 as a 75th birthday present for him), and James Tyrone in Eugene O'Neill's A Long Day's Journey Into Night.
About this time, people began asking when he would retire from the stage. He blamed himself for starting the rumour after he performed in The Tempest at Stratford in 1999 and said he wanted to take a year off. That same year, Canada Post issued a stamp celebrating the Stratford Festival with an image of its famous thrust stage superimposed with an ethereal depiction of Mr. HUTT as Prospero with his arms outstretched and a wistful expression on his face. The following year, the City of Stratford renamed the Waterloo Street bridge in his honour.
Instead of taking a final bow at Stratford, he added a new venue to his repertoire by agreeing to play the poet Spooner in Soulpepper's remounting of Harold Pinter's No Man Land in 2003, the first time he had been on a Toronto stage in nearly two decades. " HUTT's Spooner is a miracle of economy, delivering every ounce of the text with an efficiency that makes his performance almost terse in the play's first act," said Kate TAILOR/TAYLOR, then theatre critic for The Globe and Mail, before he "masterfully delivers Spooner's final proposal with an expansiveness that leaves one speculating about the desperation beneath and so closes the play."
The man who lured Mr. HUTT to Toronto was Soulpepper impresario Albert SCHULTZ. A member of the Young Company when Robin Phillips was artistic director at Stratford, Mr. SCHULTZ had played Edgar to Mr. HUTT's desolate monarch in the festival's 1989 production of King Lear. Mr. HUTT returned to Toronto and to Soulpepper in 2004 to play Vladimir in Samuel Beckett's Waiting for Godot. During rehearsals, he told The Globe's Ian Brown that "most of my dark moments now centre around just how many more years I am going to be granted. When I turned 80, the heart specialist - because I have a bit of a heart problem - said, 'Well, after 80, it's a bit of a crapshoot, you know.' " By then, he had a bad back from an injury he incurred in the 1950s when, as a minor player in The Merry Wives of Windsor, he jumped into a laundry hamper and jolted his spine.
Although Mr. HUTT had officially retired from Stratford at the end of 2005 with his poignant and masterful performance as Prospero in The Tempest, leaving the audience with the final words, "Let your indulgence set me free," he agreed to come back for one role this year as a farewell gesture to artistic director Richard MONETTE, in Diana LeBlanc's production of Edward Albee's A Delicate Balance. In March, he underwent a series of tests and was diagnosed with anemia, which turned into acute leukemia. He withdrew from the play, offering "my most profound apologies for the problems and inconvenience I'm sure it will cause."
And then he prepared for what he said on Friday was his final project - death - of which he was determined to be the "project manager." With landscape gardener Matthew MacKAY, the man who shared his home since 1973, he chose a cemetery plot and decided on his epitaph: Soldier and Actor. After a stay in hospital, he returned to his home on the banks of the Avon in Stratford and visited with family and Friends, including Albert SCHULTZ. "Bill was extremely brave and generous in preparing those near to him for his final exit. And yet today it seems unthinkable that he is no longer among us," he said in a statement.
On Tuesday, Mr. HUTT decided it was time to go back to hospital. That same afternoon, Michael Therriault, who once played Ariel to Mr. HUTT's Prospero and is currently getting raves as Gollum in the English production of The Lord of the Rings, cancelled a performance to fly home to see him. Sadly, he arrived a few hours too late.
The three stages of William HUTT
His voice was commanding and polite when I requested an interview two weeks ago. "I will be happy to talk with you, but my days are short," he said. "I am looking on my demise as a project, and I am the project manager." We set a date for last Friday afternoon.
On a clear, sunny day I walked across the bridge named in his honour to his house on Waterloo Street in Stratford, where the white Cadillac, with WMHUTT on the licence plate, was parked in the driveway. I rang the doorbell and was ushered into the living room by his housemate, Matthew MacKAY. Wearing a loose, brown-patterned shirt over casual trousers and, with terribly swollen ankles showing above a pair of moccasins, Mr. HUTT sat in a wing chair beside a window. He was attached to a portable oxygen tank and did not rise to greet me -- yet another indication, from an unfailingly courteous man, that his strength was failing. His face had a waxy pallor and, as a reformed smoker after more than 60 years of cigarettes, he was often racked with coughing spells, but his conversation was thoughtful and engaging. Over the next 90 minutes, he talked frankly about his parents, the war and his introduction to death before he had had a chance to know much about life. He said there are three major changes: The first is adolescence, when things happen to your body and your mind. The second stage is when you are in your 20s and your parents become your Friends rather than authority figures (the war had interrupted that process for him and left him divided from his parents). The third stage, the one he was entering, is death and wondering what that will be like.
Mr. HUTT was well aware of his own capacities as an actor. "I will leave the word 'great' to history," he said, "but I do know that in some kind of way, my career as an actor has paralleled the growth of theatre in this country." He said he had always been very practical as an actor, and that his decision to stay home rather than to chase fame in London and New York came from an "arrogant pride" in Canada. "I had no intention of leaving this country until I was invited. I wasn't going to beg." And by doing so, he showed that it was possible to have both a stellar career here and illustrious offers to work elsewhere. Of artistic director Richard MONETTE, who built so much of the last 15 years at the festival around him, Mr. HUTT said: "He has prolonged my life and my career."
The only question he deflected was about his romantic life. He referred to his housemate Mr. MacKAY as "the backbone of my life," but insisted on keeping the nature of their relationship private. "He has his own life, he always has had. I know people would like to pigeonhole it, but it isn't a pigeonhole thing."
Sensing his fatigue, I said my goodbyes. After struggling to get up, he pulled my face down and kissed me on both cheeks, a farewell that only now I realize was permanent. Sandra MARTIN
William deWitt HUTT was born in Toronto on May 2, 1920. He died in hospital in Stratford, Ontario, on June 27, 2007, of acute leukemia. He was 87. A funeral is being planned for Saint_James Anglican Church in Stratford.

He flew in combat in Germany and mercy missions in Africa
By F.F. LANGAN, Special to The Globe and Mail, Page S9
Jack PATTERSON, was a Canadian pilot who flew in two wars. The first was the 1939-45 war during which he flew bombing missions over Germany, and the second was to deliver relief supplies in the Nigerian Civil War.
John PATTERSON grew up in Dawson Creek, British Columbia, where his parents ran a general store. They held high ambitions for their children. Bill, the eldest son, became a doctor; the same was expected of young Jack. Instead, at 17, he lied about his age and joined the Royal Canadian Air Force.
He qualified as a pilot and was soon in England flying heavy bombers with 431 (Iroquois) squadron. On one mission, he helped spare Cologne Cathedral from unnecessary damage. The crews had been briefed to use the famed spire to line up for an industrial target and, at the last minute, it seemed to him that his bomb aimer was going to blast the cathedral itself. He managed to take evasive action, he told his family years later, and the bombs fell elsewhere.
Near the end of the war, his Lancaster was attacked by an ME-262, the world's first jet fighter. Usually, that meant certain death for a slow bomber but luckily his gunners shot down the jet.
After the war, he attended the University of British Columbia. Following graduation, he moved to Montreal where he ran a driving school for a time yet could not resist the lure of flight. He soon found himself working for Wheeler Aviation, which later became Nordair, flying Douglas DC-3s and DC-4s to the Arctic.
In 1968, he helped a church group called Canair Relief to buy one of Nordair's obsolete propeller-driven Lockheed Constellations so it could fly aid to Biafra, the losing side in the Nigerian Civil War. One thing led to another, and he took a leave of absence to fly the Super Constellation for Canair. For one thing, he felt sorry for an organization that knew so little about aircraft or the logistics of moving a plane and its spare parts halfway around the world.
"Good intentions gone bad left PATTERSON furious at church groups on the way over," recalled Toronto journalist Peter Worthington, who went on the first trip for the Toronto Telegram. "The church groups overloaded the plane without telling the captain."
Departing from Gander, the plane had barely achieved liftoff, Mr. PATTERSON later wrote in a memoir. "Nearly towards the end of the runway… we staggered into the air. It took us almost 25 minutes to get the airplane up to 5,000 feet."
Later, it turned out that the Newfoundland government had donated a Volkswagen and loaded it on without his knowledge. The extra weight meant the plane had to make an emergency stop at the Azores to refuel.
Jack PATTERSON his crew and their plane were based in Sao Tome, the Portuguese islands off the west coast of Africa. From there they flew to the Uli airfield in Biafra, carrying food and medical supplies as often as three trips each night. They operated at night since the Nigerian Air Force, using Egyptian pilots, flew their MiG fighters only during daylight hours.
Sometimes, Mr. PATTERSON landed his plane while under attack. "Three bombs went off about 300 yards off our starboard side," Mr. PATTERSON later wrote. "I knew from experience that the bombs paralleling the runway could do us no harm."
Even so, the plane was one night hit by shrapnel and lost an engine. The crew had to fly the crippled plane to Britain for an overhaul. The British, who were supporting the Nigerian government, threw them out but they found an obliging repair firm in France.
Without telling the church group - though he felt certain they knew - Mr. PATTERSON delivered high-octane aviation gasoline to a Swedish mercenary named Count Carl Gustav von Rosen who used it to mount attacks on Nigerian airfields. A Catholic, Mr. PATTERSON joked he brought in the fuel when Protestant relief organizations were paying the freight.
By the time he left Africa, he had logged 567 hours piloting 162 flights into Uli airport. In total, Canair Relief flew in 183,973 tons of aid, not counting the contraband aviation fuel.
He returned home and continued to work at Nordair until 1984, when regulations forced him to retire at 60. After that, he and a colleague leased a Lear Jet and flew for a charter airline. He gave that up when his vision deteriorated, but continued to fly his own Cessna 172 for pleasure. By the time he gave up the controls for good, he had logged 33,000 hours - the equivalent to spending three years and 10 months aloft.
John Stockton PATTERSON was born on October 3, 1924, in Regina. He died of lung disease, and from complications of a fall, in Toronto on October 27, 2007. He was 83. He is survived by his wife, Gloria, and by four children from an earlier marriage: Linda, Jack, Glenn and Lise. A daughter Lorraine, died in 1971.

PATTON, Leo David
In loving memory of a dear husband, father and grand father who passed away one year ago on January 13, 2006.
The rolling stream of life goes on
But still the vacant chair
Recalls the time, the voice, the smile
Of him who once sat there.
- Always remembered by Marion, Lynn. Lori and families
