Jack was an avid outdoorsman who loved to hunt, fish and camp and who especially enjoyed touring about in his camper visiting family and Friends. He especially liked taking each of his family for a week during the summer months when they would share time together, usually on a fishing adventure. Jack also enjoyed getting away to the "acreage" where he would relax in his woodworking hobby and just enjoying the life which it provided. His family, and particularly his grandchildren, were his "pride and joy".
He was predeceased by his beloved Edna (née McARTHUR) and is lovingly remembered by his children Tom LOUCKS (Andrea) of Coronation, Jean (Bob) WALL of Calgary, Bob LOUCKS (Shar) also of Calgary, Janice (Gary) AUSTIN of Rocky Mountain House and Ronald, also of Rocky Mountain House.

He was predeceased by brothers Norman LOUCKS of Markdale and Ross LOUCKS of New Brunswick and a sister Jean MERLA of Sudbury and will be remembered also by sisters-in-law Mary LOUCKS of Markdale and Sandra LOUCKS of New Brunswick and is also survived by many nieces and nephews.
Following cremation, a family service and celebration of Jack's life, officiated by Reverend Doctor Brian GOODINGS, was conducted at the Ferguson Funeral Home, 48 Boucher St. E. in Meaford, Ontario on Saturday, June 2 at 11: 00 a.m.

Crash kills London mother, daughter
Their car hit a median on Highway 401 and was struck by a transport truck.
By Randy RICHMOND, Sun Media, Wed., September 12, 2007
Grim scene: The driver of this transport truck died yesterday morning when he rear-ended a tractor trailer on Highway 401 near Colonel Talbot Road that had slowed for a police roadblock to divert traffic around an earlier fatal accident. (Derek RUTTAN Sun Media)
A London mother and daughter dedicated to helping victims of self abuse were killed yesterday in a Highway 401 crash that led to the death of a third driver hours later.
B.J. THOM, 52, also known as Elizabeth, and her daughter, Ashley GARROD, 22, were killed after their car hit the median in the east lanes of Highway 401 between Colonel Talbot Road and Wellington Road, spun out of control and was hit by a transport truck during heavy rain about 4 a.m., police said.
The driver of the tractor-trailer faces several charges, including leaving the scene of an accident causing death.
A second crash occurred just before 11 a.m. at the roadblock where police were diverting traffic from Highway 401 to Colonel Talbot Road.
A transport truck slowed down at the roadblock and a second truck slammed into it, killing the driver of the second truck.
Killed in the second crash was Timothy McDERMOTT, 50, of South Woodslee, Essex County.
The three deaths bring to nine the total killed on area roads the last 11 days and the carnage is exasperating police, said Const. Doug GRAHAM of Middlesex Ontario Provincial Police.
"Every accident on Highway 401 and 402 in the past few days was preventable. We are very concerned about all these deaths," he said.
Some drivers aren't getting the message to slow down in bad weather or at night, to leave room between vehicles and to wear seatbelts, GRAHAM said.
"That is is what is so disturbing."
Friends of THOM and GARROD expressed horror yesterday at the news the pair had died.
THOM and GARROD ran Self Abuse Finally Ends in Canada, a London-based group that helps people who hurt themselves.
THOM had successfully fought self abuse, said Trix VAN EGMOND, mental health public educator with the Canadian Mental Health Association of London- Middlesex.
"She gave help back and she did it in a personalized way. She was very funny and irreverent, I think, from going to hell and back herself."
GARROD was driving the car when the crash occurred, Ontario Provincial Police said.
Police learned of the accident from a motorist who noticed headlights from a vehicle in the south ditch along the east lanes.
Officers arrived to find the two women dead and the car "extensively damaged," GRAHAM said.
They also found a headlight at the scene.
"From the impact and from the evidence left at the scene we were able to determine it was a tractor-trailer we were looking for," GRAHAM said.
It appears the car hit the median and spun enough that the truck hit the passenger side, GRAHAM said.
Police searched area truck stops for a damaged tractor- trailer missing a headlight. They found a truck parked at the back of the Flying J truck stop south off Highway 401 near Highbury Avenue about two hours later, GRAHAM said.
The driver was inside the truck, he added, and at first refused to leave the cab, .
"He made no effort to contact police or return to the scene," GRAHAM said.
Stefan FOGIEL, 61, of Acton, has been charged with two counts of failing to remain at the scene of an accident causing death, resisting arrest, failing to maintain log books and failing to have a pre-trip inspection, Ontario Provincial Police said.
FOGIEL made a brief court appearance before Justice of the Peace Patricia HODGINS yesterday.
White-haired with glasses and wearing a white T-shirt with a Bass Beer logo, FOGIEL told HODGINS he wanted a Polish interpreter for his court appearances.
Assistant Crown attorney Brian WHITE/WHYTE ordered FOGIEL be kept in custody. He is to make a video court appearance today.
The second crash yesterday occurred only minutes after police had removed the London women's crumpled blue car from the scene of the first incident.
"The lead transport truck was slowing down. The one behind slammed into it. It was quite an impact," GRAHAM said.
The driver of the first transport, Harpreet PANNU, 29, of Brampton, suffered non-life-threatening injuries.
There was no reason for the collision, GRAHAM said.

Lou loved spending time with his family and Friends at the summer cottage he and Mary built. His other passion in life was teaching and his dedication and commitment to education will not be forgotten. He made the most of his retirement, traveling with his wife and Friends, working on his gardens, developing his golf and curling games, and taking long walks with his beloved dogs. Lou's competitive fire was most evident during nightly cribbage games at the cottage. Quiet yet confident, Lou will be forever remembered for his patience, spirit and kindness. We will miss his guidance, sense of humour, and loving nature.
Visitation will take place on June 7th at the Fawcett Funeral Home in Collingwood between 6 and 9 p.m. Funeral service will be June 8th at Saint Mary's Catholic Church in Collingwood at 6 p.m. In lieu of flowers, donations may be made to Collingwood Collegiate Institute to establish an award in Lou's memory or the Collingwood Humane Society.

MORRISON, Valerie Dymoke (née WHITE/WHYTE)
Valerie died peacefully in her ninetieth year on June 14, 2007 in Halifax with family by her side. She was born in Wisbech, Cambridgeshire, England, the second daughter of T. Charles and Grace Lillian (CARLILE) WHITE/WHYTE. She was the dearly loved wife of the late Doctor Allan Bruce MORRISON, who died June 14, 1990. Valerie was a graduate of The Royal College of Music, London, receiving both ARCM and GRSM degrees. During the war years she was music mistress at Newcastle Church High School (evacuated to Alnwick Castle) and later at Wisbech High School. She met Allan, a Canadian soldier, when he visited, while on leave, her sister at their home in Wisbech. After a brief wartime courtship, they corresponded during his years of graduate study at Columbia University. In 1948, she and Allan married a few days after her arrival on the Aquitania at Pier 21. Valerie resumed her teaching career in 1967, and derived great enjoyment from her many piano students. Beyond her family, many dear Friends and music, she took great pleasure in swimming. Surely no one enjoyed the Waegwoltic pool more. She was unapologetic about the time she spent writing poetry. As the youngest generation observed, 'Grandma was an artist.' Valerie was predeceased by her infant daughter Diana and her sister Heather. She is survived by her sister Pamela, Southport, England; her four children, Elizabeth (Daniel HUGHES,) Heather (David TRANT,) Victoria (Michael MITCHELL) and Charles (Francesca;) her grandchildren Michael, Stephanie, Katherine and Victoria HUGHES, Katie, Emily, William and Pamela TRANT, Jeffrey and Emily MITCHELL, and Jacqueline MORRISON; honorary grandchildren, Tina RICHICHI and Jonathan HUGHES. The family would like to acknowledge the kind attention that Michelle McIntyre has given Valerie for many years, and the unwavering support of Albert Doyle, who was her 'ever present help in time of trouble'. More recently, the loving, expert care provided by Cathy Rouse, Holly Bell and Denise Ruppe enabled Valerie to remain at home until her final illness. We will always remember their kindness. The family is also grateful to the staff of 9 Lane at the QEII Health Sciences Centre for their compassionate care of our mother. A memorial service will take place at the Cathedral Church of All Saints (College St.) on Monday, the 18th of June, 2007 at 2: 00 p.m. with a reception to follow in the church hall. In lieu of flowers, donations may be made to the Dartmouth Boys and Girls Club, 60 Farrell Street, Dartmouth B3H 4B3. E-mail condolences to: condolences.snow@aliantzinc.ca Requiescat in Pace.

Phyllis celebrated her 91st birthday on June 11, 2007 while in hospital for the treatment of cancer. She was predeceased by her late husband of 63 years, Frederick WHITE/WHYTE, her sister Margaret and her brother Hector McLEOD. She is survived by her sons Frederick J., Douglas, David and her daughter Gretchen, her five grandchildren Alicia and Tyler, Jamie and Christopher, and Frederick L. Phyllis was born the daughter of John Angus and Jennie Margaret McLEOD on June 11, 1916. She was a graduate of Agnes Megantic High School, and went on to McDonald College for Teachers affiliated with McGill University, Montreal, Quebec. Remaining in Quebec province, she taught elementary school Grade 2 for the Town of Mount Royal from 1939-43. Phyllis met her future husband when she shared an apartment in Montreal with his sister Marion. After being very enamoured of Phyllis' cooking, Fred married her on June 26, 1943 and the wedding reception was held at the Mount Royal Hotel. They then moved to Mont St. Hilaire, just south of Montreal, where she raised her four children in a home overlooking the Richelieu River. The family was active in the local St. Andrews United Church, Beloeil, Quebec. Always a creative mind, Phyllis learned the art of rug hooking and produced many original rugs throughout her lifetime. She learned the skill of bread making from her mother and Phyllis remained an enthusiastic bread maker, much to the benefit of Friends and family, throughout her whole life. Phyllis was a perennial caretaker of both plants and flowers. Under her tender care, her plants thrived both inside and outside the home. In 1969 Phyllis and Fred moved to the Chelsea district of London, England. There she took up the art of patchwork quilting because she said it was all the rage in London at the time. She produced many hand pieced hexagonal design coverlets that were used in the home. When they returned to Canada, they moved to Halifax, Nova Scotia where they lived in their Studley Ave. home for 35 years. Phyllis even produced a small hooked rug depicting their Studley Ave. home. Always enthusiastic patrons of the arts, Phyllis and Fred were life members of the Art Gallery of Nova Scotia. The family wishes to thank the wonderful Studley Ave. neighbours who generously lent their support and Friendship especially in their years of declining health. Phyllis wished to thank her good friend Joan Dawson for her close and abiding Friendship over the years. The family would like to thank all the doctors and nurses who gave such compassionate care throughout Phyllis' recent illness. A memorial service will be held on Friday, August 24 at 11 a.m. at the Atlantic School of Theology Chapel, 660 Francklyn Street, Halifax. Rev. Arlene Riches officiating. In lieu of flowers, memorial contributions may be made to the Radiation Oncology Fund at the QEII Foundation, 1278 Tower Road, Room 1-040, Halifax, Nova Scotia B3H 2Y9 Canada.

The hurtin' life of a Milton man
By Peter CHENEY, Page M1
Wayne CHAPMAN's final stage was a warped square of plywood on the roof outside his $110-a-week rented room. He would strum his guitar, look out over the rooftops of Milton, and remember the glory days when he played with the legendary Stompin' Tom Connors.
Last week, Mr. CHAPMAN's guitar was placed in his casket, a final tribute to a man whose life exemplified the hurtin' ethos of country, the music he loved the best. Long divorced, the 52-year-old lived in a boarding house with 14 other men, many of them down on their luck. His previous residence was a room above a tavern. Mr. CHAPMAN worked as a custodian at a car-parts plant, cleaning the cafeteria and changing toilet-paper rolls.
"He didn't have much," said Ken MURRAY, the superintendent of the boarding house. "But he was a good guy."
Like Stompin' Tom, whose experiences included hard labour, abandonment and poverty, Mr. CHAPMAN was a genuine country music character, informed by heartache and loss. His possessions were limited to a few guitars and some beaten furniture. He had lived for a while in Georgetown, but moved to Milton after he was targeted in a series of robberies. His entertainment consisted of buying a case of Molson Canadian to drink with Friends. He rode to work each day on a hand-me-down mountain bike he called "The Dirty Dawg."
In Milton, he lived in a single room, where he cooked his meals in a microwave and washed his dishes in a shared bathroom. Unlike Mr. Connors, who lives in a comfortable home in a nearby township, Mr. CHAPMAN had never made enough to escape the endless cycle of low-paid day jobs. But to country music insiders, his time on stage with Mr. Connors meant that he had been validated, if not financially rewarded.
Mr. CHAPMAN's death was a strange one. On August 23, he came home from work, and went out on the roof with his guitar and a few beers.
His second-floor room was one of the hottest in the house. He liked to escape the heat by stepping out onto the roof through his window, where he would play Stompin' Tom and Johnny Cash tunes on his weathered acoustic guitar.
This day, he was joined by one of his housemates, who shared a beer with him. It was late afternoon, and the weather was perfect. The roof was the size of an average room - it was a poor man's deck, with a flat black top and no railings. As usual, there were a few yellow-jacket wasps buzzing around. The insects had built a nest inside a crack in the building's brick wall, and had defied the superintendent's extermination efforts.
Mr. CHAPMAN hated the yellow jackets. Just weeks before, he had jammed a stick into the nest, against the superintendent's recommendation, checking to see if a recent spraying had killed them off. It hadn't. Now he was in a fighting mood. He fetched a fly-swatter and began swinging at the wasps. It was a bad idea. He had unwittingly triggered the wasps' defence mechanism, and countless more poured out of the nest to help their embattled fellows.
Mr. CHAPMAN soon found himself in a full-on battle, walking backwards and using his swatter to try to fend off the growing insect horde. In the room below, Mr. MURRAY heard his footsteps on the rooftop. "Jesus," he thought. "I told him to stay out of there."
There was a thud. Consumed with his battle with the wasps, Mr. CHAPMAN had stepped off the edge of the roof and fallen six metres to the pavement. He was rushed to the Milton hospital, then airlifted to Saint Michael's in Toronto. He died of his injuries and a forensic autopsy was performed the next day. His death was ruled accidental.
"It's a very sad case," said Detective Murray DRINKWALTER of Halton Regional Police.
It was the end of a sad life, whose highlight was a 1985 appearance on a Stompin' Tom Connors album called Stompin' Tom Is Back to Assist Canadian Talent. Mr. CHAPMAN contributed two songs (My Home Town and The Bars of Vancouver) and was pictured on the cover, dressed in black jeans and a Stetson.
The album was propped on his coffin this week at his small funeral in Erin, Ontario Among the visitors at the funeral home, according to locals, was Stompin' Tom, who dropped by to pay his final respects to a fallen musical comrade. Also there were his mother and some of his brothers and sisters. The family, along with Mr. Connors, declined to talk about Mr. CHAPMAN, but others filled in a few of the blanks.
According to Fred WHITE/WHYTE, his supervisor at the car-parts plant, Stompin' Tom entered Mr. CHAPMAN's life when his father took in the iconic singer many years ago during a dark period.
"He came home one day, and there was this tall, skinny guy," said Mr. WHITE/WHYTE. "It was Stompin' Tom."
Mr. CHAPMAN went on to perform occasionally with Mr. Connors, and never stopped talking about how amazing it was to play with a genuine musical legend. "To him, Stompin' Tom was the second coming of Jesus," said Mr. MURRAY. "He loved him."
"A lot of musicians would give anything to play with Stompin' Tom," said Duncan FREMLIN, a guitarist who used to tour with Mr. Connors. "He's the real thing."
His thoughts were echoed by Bob McNIVEN, a guitarist who toured with Mr. Connors in the early 1980s. "Stompin' Tom is a legend," he said. "To play with him was an accomplishment." Mr. McNIVEN, who now works for Statistics Canada but still plays in a country band called Whiskey Jack, has never forgotten the talent and commitment that Mr. Connors brought to his performances.
"He really meant it. He'd be singing, and there were tears running down his face. You'd look out into the audience, and they were crying too."
Although he didn't know Mr. CHAPMAN (hundreds of musicians have toured with Mr. Connors's various bands,) Mr. McNIVEN said he felt a pang of recognition when he heard about the death last week. "He played guitar with Stompin' Tom. I played guitar with Stompin' Tom. In some way we were brothers. We drank from the same cup."
Back at the rooming house where Mr. CHAPMAN died, Mr. MURRAY also reflected on his companion's life and times. "He didn't have a mean bone in his body," said Mr. MURRAY as he drank his fourth tumbler of Silk Tassel scotch. "He was a good guy. But he should have left those wasps alone."
Mr. MURRAY, now 66, spent about 30 years as a professional country musician, playing in clubs and bars and, briefly, for a Montreal-based television show. Like Mr. CHAPMAN was, he's divorced and lives alone with his dusty musical equipment.
"I'm a has-been," he says. "We're all has-beens here.
"Here's to Wayne."

When the call of the wild turns deadly
By Patrick WHITE/WHYTE, Page L1
In the spring of 1992, a 24-year-old Virginian tromped into the woods three hours west of Fairbanks, Alaska, to live off the land for a season. Four months later, Christopher McCandless was packed out of the bush a 67-pound corpse.
The tale of his horrifying decline was soon frozen into North American lore, popularized in news articles and Into the Wild, a bestselling book by Jon Krakauer.
Next Friday, a movie version of the book directed by Sean Penn is to open, cementing Mr. McCandless's place in Northern mythology as a tragic hero who courted death for a chance to live free of civilization.
His folly isn't so uncommon.
In Canada, the backcountry wanderings of solace seekers turn fatal on such a regular basis, their exploits rarely merit more than a few column inches in community newspapers.
"These types are fairly common in the North," says the writer Farley Mowat, who has spent stints as both subject and documenter of survival in the wild. "All humans have this deep hunger to reconnect with nature, to feel symbiosis with the natural world. That puts you on the edge a lot. Sometimes over the edge."
Take 19-year-old William SOMMER. Shortly after graduating high school, the Ancaster, Ontario, teen bounced from auto-plant to construction jobs in search of deeper fulfilment. That quest eventually drew him north to Alaska, the Yukon and the Northwest Territories in the spring of 1999.
Sputtering across the region in a beat-up Volkswagen Rabbit, Mr. SOMMER befriended a number of locals who taught him basic survival skills. By July, he'd pronounced himself ready for the ultimate communion with nature: running the torrential South Nahanni River by kayak.
Ignoring the advice of two Nahanni National Park wardens who were concerned he was unprepared to survive the rapids, Mr. SOMMER put in on turbid Little Nahanni River.
A month later his concerned mother called the park office. They dispatched a helicopter, which soon spotted Mr. SOMMER's overturned kayak containing only food and a Bible.
His body was never found; his story rarely recounted.
"He was just a teenager that loved the wilderness," says his mother, Elizabeth. "He was our darling. Lord Jesus is taking care of him now."
Parks Canada has reported that as many as 40 people die in the country's national parks every year.
Mr. SOMMER falls into a broad category of adventurers who've gone north heeding the call of the wild, a tradition that goes back to centuries past and the ill-fated explorers who volunteered to go aboard ships seeking the Northwest Passage. That urge has lasted well into the modern era.
When Peter HARMATHY put a call out for crew members to join him on a daring walk across the Arctic in 1986, he received more than 400 eager responses. He chose four men to join him, all of them eager to escape their problems.
Over the course of their trip, they risked death on a daily basis. They hiked across breaking ice floes and often travelled on empty stomachs. One crew member fell through ice and nearly drowned.
"We were insane," admits Mr. HARMATHY, who's now a teacher in southern Ontario. "But this has remained the focal point in all our lives even 20 years later."
Just like so many anonymous crew members aboard exploration ships, the names of those who have died more recently in the wilderness go unknown.
In the fall of 2002, a 29-year-old Montrealer named Yan Gulevych set out to cross Newfoundland's mountainous Northern Peninsula to Great Harbour Deep, a remote outport on the east coast. What he and the five Friends who joined him didn't know was that Great Harbour Deep had been abandoned that summer in a government resettlement program.
At some point during the poorly planned adventure, Mr. Gulevych wandered off into the snow and floating bogs wearing only cotton pants and a light nylon coat. His remains will likely never be found.
"That's territory so rugged that hunters and outfitters don't even go there," says Royal Canadian Mounted Police Sergeant Wayne Newell, who was involved in the search. "He was poorly equipped, had inadequate clothing and a lack of nourishment. It was a lot of bad choices."
Mr. SOMMER and Mr. Gulevych were drawn into self-destruction by their love of the outdoors. Many others feel a need to escape the trappings of civilization.
Bart Schleyer, 49, a renowned bear and tiger expert, moved to the Yukon in 2002 to escape the pressures of work and society. In 2004, Mr. Schleyer, a veteran outdoorsman and avid bow hunter, was flown 280 kilometres north of Whitehorse to go moose hunting alone. When the pilot returned three weeks later to retrieve Mr. Schleyer, there was no sign of him.
Search teams later found his skull and some remains in bear and wolf scat. His death warranted but two brief mentions in Canada's daily papers.
Even with so many cautionary tales, there's no extinguishing some people's innate desire to commune with nature - and risktheir lives doing so - according to Mr. Mowat.
"Some of us have to escape our own kind," says Mr. Mowat, who retreated to the North after fighting in the Second World War. "For me, I had such a revulsion of my own kind. They were bastards. I wanted to get away from them."
And for those who've outlived their perilous exploits, the experience was worth tempting death.
"This was the answer to all our confusions," Mr. HARMATHY says of his trek across the Arctic. "I totally sympathize with McCandless and those like him. They have a very special place in my heart."
Northern misadventures
Whether driven by a love of nature or a desire for solutude, backcountry wanderers can sometimes push themselves over the edge.
Christopher McCANDLESS, 24
Died near Denali National park in August, 1992, after spending four months in the woods.
William SOMMER, 19
Disappeared in 1999 in Nahanni National Park on the Little Nahanni River. His body was never found but his kayak was discovered at the confluence of the Little Nahanni and South Nahanni rivers.
Yan Gulevych, 29
Disappeared in 2002 near Port Saunders, crossing Newfoundland's northern peninsula. His remains have never been found.
Bart Schleyer, 49
Died in 2004 after eating only one meal while hunting at Upper Reid Lake. His remains were found in bear and wolf droppings.

KELLY, Jewel Theresa (née ELLEMENT)
Passed away after a sudden illness in Toronto on November 27, 2007, at age 77, surrounded by family and her special friend Bev Smart FITCH. She will be sadly missed by her daughter Debbie, sons David and Daniel and daughter-in-law Susan. She was predeceased by her youngest daughter, Colleen. Proud and loving grandmother to Stephen FREITAG, Angela KELLY, Christina WHITE/WHYTE, Jennifer WHITE/WHYTE, and Kendra KELLY. Youngest sister of Nadine and Jacqueline, who both predeceased her. She was born in Hornepayne, Ontario to John and Mary (née FREEMAN) ELLEMENT, and subsequent to her own mother's death at age 3, she and her sisters were cared for by Aunt Melda SWAN in Ottawa. She attended Maxwell P.S. and Nepean H.S. Her caring nature led her to aspire to be a physiotherapist, however circumstances did not allow for that dream to be pursued at that time. She returned to a railway town in Northern Ontario as a bride of Howard, where her four children were born. The children spent their early years in Capreol, where she was a tireless volunteer in her adopted church and community. At age 37, she returned to Ottawa, to be closer to her sisters, with her 4 children, and embarked on a new career as a single mother, learned a new profession and resumed her work in the community. She had a long career with Royal Insurance, where in the latter years, both in Ottawa, and after a promotion to head office in Toronto, she was a compassionate advocate for head and spinal cord injury victims ensuring they received equitable treatment and rehabilitation. Jewel was a committed proponent of the introduction of the graduated drivers licensing in Ontario, to reduce grievous injury and tragic mortality amongst the young. Jewel campaigned passionately, for many decades, for availability of reasonable housing for the working poor and single parent families by volunteering with both the Ontario and Ottawa Housing Authorities. She served on the Social Planning Council for many years, and contributed her skills with many other support groups, and election campaigns. She was an avid fan of traveling and the outdoors, a skilled photographer and pianist, a wonderful cook and an amazing baker, an expert seamstress, a patient practitioner of the art and skill of knitting and crocheting, and an accomplished green thumb. The family will receive Friends at the Tubman Funeral Home, 403 Richmond Rd, (at Roosevelt), Ottawa, 613-722-6559, from 2-5 p.m. and 7-9 p.m. on Monday, December 3.

SPANJER, David Lucien (1922-2007)
After complications following hip surgery that was necessary after a fall during his most recent project. He leaves his wife of 53 years Ella, his daughters Linda and Hellen, his sons-in-law Steve WHITE/WHYTE and Paul HARVEY, and his grandchildren Christie, Loren, Jason, David, Bruce, and grand-dogs Spike and Sam.
Born within the sound of the Bow Bells of Saint Mary's, David enlisted in World War 2 at the tender age of 17. His wartime experiences and admiration for Winston Churchill would shape the rest of his life. His proficiency with motors and a lifelong love affair with cars led him to complete an engineering degree and even build his own car. With his wife Ella, David emigrated to Canada in 1956 and together they never looked back. As a professional engineer David's career spanned over 50 years with managing positions at Blaw Knox, Eimco, Canadian Car, and Massey Fergusson. Always preferring to control his own destiny, David built a successful consulting engineering practice. He was an inventor and entrepreneur with a boundless imagination and unprecedented work ethic amassing 13 patents in his name. He was in his element working on projects whether at the cottage, in his workshop, or surrounded by his family. One of his last projects was the 'CANABODE' a Canadian made pre-fabricated collapsible dwelling to aid victims of natural disasters. His unique sense of humour, inventiveness, and positive attitude will be greatly missed by Friends and family alike.
Thanks to the staff at Scarborough Grace Hospital (Intensive Care Unit and Palliative Care) for their kindness and compassion.
A memorial service will take place at the Humphrey Funeral Home - A.W. Miles Chapel, 1403 Bayview Avenue (south of Eglinton Avenue East), on Saturday, December 8th at 1 p.m.
