Wasaga man stabbed, friend faces murder charge
Twenty-nine year old Roger HALVORSON was stabbed in the upper body before being found outside the Riverboat Resort Saturday, police say.
And a 23-year-old Wasaga Beach man accused of second-degree murder in connection with his death was set to appear in a Barrie courtroom Thursday.
Police responded to a 911 call Saturday morning made by Riverboat Resort manager Nick SINGH.
SINGH said he found HALVORSON laying in the parking lot of the motel located at 280 River Rd. E. at 8 a.m.
He said in an interview Tuesday, that at first he thought HALVORSON had passed out.
"He was transported to hospital and later passed away as a result of the injury," said Ontario Provincial Police Const. Mark Kinney.
According to SINGH, HALVORSON was staying temporarily at the Riverboat. He had been there only a few days and was renting by the week. The motel is known for having long-term tenants.
SINGH said HALVORSON and friend Noah COUTTS, also of Wasaga Beach, went out the night before and that they had been drinking. They returned sometime Saturday morning.
It was COUTTS, 23, who was later charged with second-degree murder.
SINGH said police cleared the scene Monday.
Ontario Provincial Police Criminal Investigation Branch Detective Inspector Dave QUIGLEY is leading the investigation into HALVORSON's death.
Police are not releasing many details about the crime or an autopsy conducted Sunday.
The same parking lot was the scene of the October 20, 2002 beating death of 20-year-old Rahim PREBTANI. Michael Gordon McCARROLL was found guilty of second-degree murder and is serving a life sentence for the death of PREBTANI.
His co-accused, James Luke SMITH, pleaded guilty to manslaughter and was sentenced to two years less a day.

QUINLAN o@ca.on.middlesex_county.london.london_free_press 2007-11-30 published
A lifetime of writing from a difficult existence
By Ian GILLESPIE, Free Press Columnist, Fri., November 30, 2007
For years he shuffled along London's streets, clutching tightly to his notebooks, propelled by an urgent need to blacken the pages with the words streaming through his head.
Maybe you saw him. And if you did, maybe you steered a wide path. Because it was clear that something was amiss with Terence (Terry) QUINLAN.
"I called him the Van Gogh of the neighbourhood," says Steve GOODINE, a London police officer who lived near QUINLAN. " You knew he knew about life. You knew he had a lot to offer. But he struggled, because society didn't see him in that light."
QUINLAN's struggles are over now -- he died of kidney failure on December 4, 2006, at the age of 66 in hospital in Exeter.
But the man who will be familiar to many Londoners -- particularly those who frequent the downtown library and coffee shops -- has found some permanence, as his Goderich-based sister Pat MARTIN has now self-published a hardbound copy of his writings.
Although MARTIN had only 52 copies printed and the book isn't available to the public, she sent copies to the London Public Library, several local churches and to the national archives in Ottawa -- acts that ensure her brother's lifelong work will not soon vanish.
"He was always hungry and broke," says MARTIN. "It was hard for all of us to understand Terry. But the people of London and that neighbourhood kept him alive."
Born in Hamilton and raised in Brantford, QUINLAN was the second eldest in a family of 10 children. MARTIN recalls him as a generous boy known as the family's "scholar" for his bookish ways.
But after enrolling in a Guelph seminary at age 20 to become a priest, something happened.
Although MARTIN is unsure if he was ever formally diagnosed, she assumes it was the onset of schizophrenia that dislodged her brother from the "normal" world for the rest of his life.
There were brief stints, she recalls, when QUINLAN held regular employment. But the jobs didn't last.
"He could sometimes be a bit belligerent," MARTIN recalls. "He wanted people to understand him. He needed a lot of attention."
After drifting through Port Bruce, Aylmer and Saint Thomas, QUINLAN eventually landed in London, where he rented a single, windowless room in a house on Colborne Street for nearly 20 years.
"As long as you let him be and let him write, he was a generally happy fellow," says MARTIN. "He spent all his time writing. Besides eating and sleeping, he didn't do anything else."
Although most of his nearly illegible writings ended up in boxes, some of his poems were published in newspapers, including the Toronto Sun, and others were reprinted in church newsletters.
He wrote about a variety of topics.
He wrote about everything from coping with cold and hunger, to tributes to farmers, Terry Fox and Rose Kennedy. For the most part, the poems are laced with gentle humanity. In Kindness, for example, he wrote: "The greatest poem/ Is kindness/ The hand that turns/ A day into a smile/ A fellow into a friend/ A door into a welcome/ And a quarrel into peace."
But what emerges most from talking to MARTIN and GOODINE is not only a portrait of a poet struggling with mental illness, but a picture of a community that cared for him.
MARTIN says QUINLAN's landlords, the Skinners, showed a "gentle tough love" to her brother, while others supplied him with the gloves and shoes that he invariably seemed to lose.
"Terry would drop off his letters and poetry to people," recalls GOODINE, who typed some of QUINLAN's work. "And everyone did what they could to look out for him."
Of course, even simple gestures could go awry. GOODINE recalls giving QUINLAN a handful of winning roll-up-the-rim stubs from Tim Hortons. Later, he learned QUINLAN had redeemed the coupons all at once, consuming six coffees and five doughnuts in a single sitting.
But in the end, GOODINE says QUINLAN's difficult life reminds him to look beyond a person's outward appearance and behaviour.
"I think that's the lesson," he says. "Everyone adds something. Everyone has a gift, or something to share… And we need to be there for them. That's what works."

Gentle priest a devoted Maple Leafs fan
By Claire NEARY, Sun Media, Sun., December 30, 2007
Rev. Clarence FITZGERALD, known and loved by many as "Father Fitz," was a quiet, gentle priest, dedicated to his profession, his parishioners -- and the Toronto Maple Leafs.
Though he could make it to Toronto for only the occasional Leafs game, FITZGERALD was also a devoted Windsor Spitfires fan and season ticket holder.
For nearly 50 years, he touched the lives of many people across the Roman Catholic Diocese of London in more than a dozen parishes.
FITZGERALD died of cancer, surrounded by his family in Windsor, on December 5, at age 74.
Born in Windsor, FITZGERALD -- known to his family as Father Clare -- was the youngest of five children.
"He was a wonderful brother. My baby brother," said his eldest sister, Margaret MEYER of Brampton.
FITZGERALD always knew he wanted to be a priest and attended Saint Peter's Seminary in London.
He played and enjoyed almost all sports, especially basketball, golf and, of course, hockey.
FITZGERALD was ordained in 1959 and worked in parishes in Delhi, London, Chatham, Woodstock, Saint Marys and Windsor.
He was also the chaplain at Victoria Hospital in London early in his career.
FITZGERALD retired in 2003 but continued to perform weddings, funerals and baptisms as long as he was healthy.
"It was amazing at his funeral to see the number of people from all of the places he'd served," his friend Rev. John COSTELLO said.
"So many people talked about how he'd unknowingly touched their lives."
Above all, Friends said FITZGERALD was a great listener.
"He would never talk much about himself. It was always about the other person," said Mike RICKETTS, a longtime parishioner at St. Alphonsus in Windsor.
"And he always found time, or made time, for the people who needed him."
COSTELLO said many parishioners chose FITZGERALD for confession because he was a kind and gentle listener.
Although he was quiet and sensitive, FITZGERALD was the king of one-liners, his friend Rev. Chris QUINLAN remembered.
"And we always knew never to talk to him during the Leafs games and only to call him in between periods," QUINLAN said, laughing.
He described his friend as a "priest's priest" who loved spending time with his colleagues on the golf course.

QUINN, Leonard " Len" William
By Annabel MacDONALD, Page A16
Husband, father, golfer. Born March 9, 1924 in North Bay, Ontario Died November 2, 2006 in Waterloo, Ontario, of a heart attack, aged 82.
Len was born and raised in North Bay, the eldest of six children. He attended Scollard Hall School and was taught by priests who had a positive influence on his life. However it was Pauline, a beautiful French woman, who caught his eye. He joined the navy at the age of 18 and was stationed off the coast of Cape Breton during the Second World War. On one of his leaves, he called Pauline and suggested they marry the following week. VE day was announced on their honeymoon.
Len joined Bell Telephone as a lineman; he was afraid of heights, yet there he was climbing telephone poles. The children came quickly for this passionate Catholic couple, compelling Len, at the age of 28, to make a career move. Len started selling individual life insurance for Mutual Life. Going door-to-door, (either on foot or by bus, as he couldn't yet afford a car) and working on 100 per cent commission, Len was a natural salesman. Along the way, seven children arrived: Jerome, Blair, Caroline, Marie, Christine, Marc and Annabel.
The seven became eight with the legal sponsorship of Clement, an engineering student from Sri Lanka, who became son No. 4. Our father made time in his own way to connect with each of us.
Len moved the family to Waterloo (and the company's head office), settling into upper management in 1965, and retiring after 35 years of service.
As time permitted Len improved his golf game. Len and Pauline (and their golf clubs), travelled extensively to many countries. Len was known for his great sense of humour, his ability to make anyone, from the milkman to royalty, feel good and smile.
He also had a reputation for always being early, never late, for any appointment or function and his family respected this measure of the man.
Len had a short-term memory issue. No one was surprised when in the fall of 2005 his medical diagnoses confirmed this and the prospect for further deterioration. This retired leader and executive who was always in control, accepted his diagnosis with grace.
Pauline assumed the role as matriarch, caring lovingly for her prince.
Len's family never imagined that he would be the first to die, but Len seemed to know he would be first. He always hated waiting in line! In his final week with us, he asked for assistance in composing a letter resigning his golf membership -- it was too hard to play.
On November 1, 2006, at 4 in the afternoon, he had a heart attack. His "back nine" occurred nine hours after life support was discontinued, waiting for many of his family, to gather to say good-bye.
Len was buried two days later, but Len wasn't ready to settle down yet: 24 days later Len was disinterred when his son Blair discovered he could have been buried in the veteran's section of the cemetery. Providence dictated that two children, along with Pauline, show up at the cemetery to see Len being transferred on a "golf cart" where a second, smaller and happier burial occurred. A tee, two golf balls and a retired golf club joined Len on the 19th hole. A large monument will boast Len's name, honouring our fallen comrade.
For more than 20 years, Len celebrated two events regularly with his large family (which had grown to include eight children-in-law, 19 grandchildren and two great-granddaughters). These were the Mother's Day and Christmas brunches at his golf club, two fêtes no one ever wanted to miss. This year Pauline decided to host the event, with Len's place of honour proudly displayed.
Annabel MacDONALD is Len's daughter.

RAINEY, C. William " Bill"
Bill passed away in the early morning of August 27th after a short but undaunted and fearless battle with colon cancer at the young age of 54, with his family by his side. He will be forever loved and remembered by his beautiful wife, Diane (JEFFERIES,) and his fantastic and adored children, Kacie and Jeff and his faithful Boxer, Kona. He is also survived by his three brothers, Doug, Dave (Deanna) and Brian RAINEY; his sister-in-law Janice QUINN and her husband Sean, and his two very special nieces, Avianna and Joelle QUINN; brother-in-law David JEFFERIES; Michelle and Emilie RAINEY; Ellen, Jeff, Laurie and Victoria POWERS. Predeceased by his mother and father, Shirley and Keith RAINEY; and his mother-in-law, Nora JEFFERIES. Bill was born in Duncan, British Columbia and moved to Calgary at a very early age. He attended Elboya Elementary and Jr. High and graduated from Henry Wise Wood High School. Bill received his B.Sc. from the University of Alberta in 1976. With a never ending quest to learn, Bill earned numerous diplomas from the University of Calgary and Queen's University School of Business, Executive Development Centre. Through the DeGroote School of Business at McMaster University, he was currently preparing to write the Chartered director's exam in September. After the successful completion of this course the Chartered Director Designation (C. Dir) would have been bestowed upon him. After completing university and a 6 month adventure tour of Europe, Bill began his business career with Xerox in Calgary and then went on to work for Royal Trust in Toronto where he took on increasing responsibilities leading to his position as Managing Partner Sales Management and Training. He and his family moved back to Calgary for several years where he assumed a Directors position with AGT/Telus. Group Telecom recognized his skills and Bill and his family once again moved to Oakville to lead the National Sales and Technical Support teams as Senior Vice President. Three years ago, Bill with his incredible 'A' team was given the opportunity to create the vision, culture and environment of the start up Voice over Internet Protocol Company, Vonage Canada. Bill was honoured to have served this team as President of the company. Giving back to the community was extremely important to Bill and his passion for helping children led him to become the Chairman of Kid's Help Phone in Alberta as well as being a member of the National Board of Kid's Help Phone. Bill was also the Chairman of the Executive Advisory Council for the Heart and Stroke Foundation. Bill's special interest and truth be told, his gift, was the mentoring, nurturing and coaching of his family, Friends and business colleagues. He was able to bring out the best in those people who sought out his wisdom and guidance. Watching Kacie's karate classes and Jeff's hockey games gave Bill immense pride. His voracious passion for reading allowed Bill to gain incredible insight and invaluable knowledge into history and business. Bill loved taking family vacations to warm and exotic places where he could indulge in his love of scuba diving and sailing. These vacations and adventures also allowed Bill to capture those moments through his love of photography. Golf was the game that kept Bill humble. Bill always looked forward to taking the annual holiday to the family cabin at Sylvan Lake, Alberta where he could relax with his family and Friends who always dropped by. There will be an open house to Celebrate Bill's life on Tuesday, September 11th, 2007, from 4: 00 p.m. to 8:00 p.m. with a short commemoration beginning at 4: 30 p.m. The celebration will be held at the Glen Abbey Golf Club at 1333 Dorval Drive, Oakville. A Celebration will also be held at the Glencoe Club in Calgary, Alberta on Friday, September 21st, 2007. A special thank you to all the caring Doctors and staff at Oakville-Trafalgar Memorial Hospital, the Henderson Hospital in Hamilton, and our family physician and friend, Doctor John DENBY. In lieu of flowers, please make donations to any Children's Hospital, the Kid's Help Phone or the Canadian Cancer Society.

QUINN, Rev. Louis Joseph, S.F.M. (1928-2007)
Fr. Lou QUINN, a priest of the Scarboro Foreign Mission Society died peacefully, October 11, 2007 while hospitalized in Ft. Lauderdale, Florida, following heart surgery and post operative treatment. He was 79 years of age. Ordained for Scarboro by Cardinal McGuigan, in December 1952, he was assigned in 1953 to the Society's mission in the Dominican Republic. Since 1965, 'Padre Luis' served the people of the parish of San Jose de Ocoa, a mountainous region near the centre of the country as their beloved pastor. Totally committed to helping the poor, he wove pastoral, sacramental ministry together with economic and social development aimed directly at improving their lives. For him this was truly living the Gospel.
Born Louis Joseph QUINN, in England in 1928, he is predeceased by his mother, Mary TAMAN, stepfather Glen TAMAN, and aunt, Sally FULTON. He came to Canada in 1934, and grew up in Toronto graduating from Saint Michael's Choir School. While a student at Saint Michael's College, he felt the call to priesthood and entered Scarboro Missions' St. Francis Xavier Seminary. A few years after being assigned to the Dominican Republic he returned to Canada and took up studies at the Coady Institute in Antigonish, Nova Scotia, known for its excellent training in the development of cooperatives and credit unions.
Fr. QUINN inspired many high school and university students especially Canadian Catholics to come as volunteers to work with the people. Supported by a Canadian community of sisters and other individuals and specialized groups, such committed efforts helped radically transform the lives and wellbeing of thousands of families and their communities throughout the area of Ocoa. He received the highest of honors from the Dominican Republic, Canada, and the Vatican for his dedicated ministry and priestly example.
On Friday, October 19, the funeral Mass will be celebrated at 10: 00 a.m. in the parish of Ocoa by Bishop Freddy Breton of Bani. The body of 'Padre Luis' will then be interred inside the parish church of Ocoa, in a simple wooden coffin the kind used by ordinary 'campesinos' for the burial of their loved ones. On the same day, Friday October 19, at 10: 00 a.m. a memorial Mass will be celebrated for him at Scarboro Missions, 2685 Kingston Rd, in the main chapel. Friends of Fr. QUINN are most welcome to join us for this occasion.
