BUTTEDAHL, Doctor Paz
Dr. Paz BUTTEDAHL, 65, passed away peacefully on October 8, 2007. She is predeceased by her loving husband of 25 years, Doctor Knute BUTTEDAHL. She is survived by her husband, John K. PARK, daughter Maria Beck BUTTEDAHL (Bob BECK), son John BUTTEDAHL (Lisa FERRARI), brother Valerio GOYCOOLEA (Rebecca PALMA,) and sisters Sofia GOYCOOLEA (Richard E. LANE) and Loreto GOYCOOLEA. Paz was a proud aunt of Claudia GOYCOOLEA (Mauricio MEYER,) Alexandre COULON (Maureen COULON- MENASHE,) Oliver GOYCOOLEA and great-aunt to Nicholas MEYER. She was a loving step-mother to Kim and Gary BUTTEDAHL and proud grandmother to Caleb and Alisha GRUNERT. Her family wishes to join in expressing all their love and appreciation for the extraordinary person Paz was, and for the outstanding contributions she made to the world. Paz was born in Santiago, Chile, and created a vast network of Friends, colleagues and students throughout the world, garnered through a long and distinguished career. The breadth of her experience spanned work with universities, international development organizations and agencies, and the Canadian military. Whatever the setting, common threads ran through all of her work: a passion for fostering international and intercultural understanding; a focus on sustainable development; and a belief in the possibility of creating an equitable and socially just world. The academic portion of Paz's career involved teaching at several universities in Canada, the United States, and Latin America, including a faculty position at the University of British Columbia and most recently, at Royal Roads University. Her work at the universities was always characterized by a passionate commitment to her students, the injection of an international perspective and comparative education approach to her courses, and a desire to create international partnerships linking students and educators from the developing world with those in Canada. Paz was sought after as a researcher and educator specializing in international development issues, and was a consultant with many international agencies and organizations. These included the Canadian International Development Agency, The United Nations Education, Scientific and Cultural Organization, the U.S. Agency for International Development, and the Organization of American States. Paz also worked for almost a decade with the International Development Research Centre in Ottawa. As Deputy Director of the Fellowships and Awards Division, her focus was on the development of human resources and the strengthening of institutions in the developing world through the education and training of their researchers and project staff. Paz strongly believed in learning as a crucial component in the achievement of sustainable development. In the early 1990s, as international development issues became more and more intertwined with issues of security, Paz was invited to attend the National Defense College in Kingston, Ontario, where she also contributed as the academic advisor to the Commandant. A subsequent posting to the Centre for National Security Studies provided a base for her research linking issues of sustainable development to those of human security. Paz's vast storehouse of knowledge and experience found a home and became invested in the creation of the Master of Arts in Human Security and Peacebuilding program at Royal Roads University in Victoria, British Columbia. As founder and program head, Paz worked tirelessly to build the program and to ensure its sustainability and its relevance to the international development and security issues of today's world. The Master of Arts in Human Security and Peacebuilding program was to be Paz's final contribution in a lifetime of notable achievements. In spite of failing health during the past months, she found strength in providing ongoing leadership to the program and in planning for its future. Paz, with her indomitable spirit and her vision of a world that might be, has enriched and influenced the lives of hundreds of Friends and colleagues around the world. Her loss will be deeply mourned. A celebration of her life will be held on at 1 p.m. on October 21 at Royal Roads University, 2nd Floor Grant Building, 2005 Sooke Rd. Victoria, British Columbia.

WEST, Sara (née TIBOLDO)

Born in Bex (Vaud, Switzerland) on November 20, 1919, daughter of Giovanni TIBOLDO and Fanny UHLER, she immigrated to Canada with her husband and children in 1958 and was a long-time resident of Kingston. A strong, generous and enterprising woman, she was an avid gardener, professional seamstress and gourmet cook. Fluent in four languages, she made special Friends among the Italian community in Kingston. Forever proud of her Swiss culture, she developed a special love for the Canadian landscape and her little paradise at Lacey Lake exploring with pals Caleb and Rerun. She travelled the world with her husband and in her later years, found inspiration and happiness in her many car trips across the country.
As she wished, a private celebration of her life will be held in the spring. Cards and flowers are gratefully declined and if desired, donations can be made to the Doctor Roxroy O. West Foundation, Pacemaker Clinic, Kingston General Hospital, 76 Stuart Street, Kingston, Ontario K7L 2V7.

MacINNIS, Doctor Cameron
Died peacefully on July 11, 2007, at Saint Michael's Hospital, Toronto, in his 82nd year, with Mary, his devoted sister, at his side. Born March 25, 1926 in West Bay, Nova Scotia, Cameron was the son of Alexander and Janet (CAMERON) MacINNIS. Besides his parents, he was predeceased by brothers Ian and Allister, and nephew, David MacINNIS. He is survived by beloved sisters Anna (Grey) AUSTIN, Calgary, and Mary MacINNIS, Toronto, thirteen nieces and nephews, seventeen great-nieces and nephews, and countless Friends. Cameron received his primary and secondary education in West Bay and Sydney, Nova Scotia, following which he graduated Bachelor of Science from Dalhousie University in 1946, and Bachelor of Engineering (Honours Civil Engineering) from the Technical University of Nova Scotia in 1948. After working as a research engineer for Ontario Hydro for eleven years, he was awarded a bursary by the Cement and Concrete Association (United Kingdom) for doctoral studies in concrete technology at the University of Durham (England), receiving the degree of Doctor of Philosophy in 1962. Cameron was appointed professor of Civil Engineering at the University of Windsor in 1963, beginning a long and distinguished career as an outstanding teacher, researcher, and administrator. He was head of the Department of Civil Engineering from 1976 to 1979 and Dean of Engineering from 1979 to 1989, retiring as Professor Emeritus in 1991. An internationally recognized expert on concrete, Cameron's research was supported over many years by grants from the National Science and Engineering Research Council of Canada, and resulted in numerous scientific articles. He and former student, Dr. Norbert BECKER, received the prestigious Wason Medal for Materials Research of the American Concrete Institute in 1975, for the best paper of the year in that field. In recognition of his outstanding contributions to engineering science Cameron was made a Life Member and Fellow of the Canadian Society of Civil Engineering, a Fellow of the American Concrete Institute, and a Fellow of the Engineering Institute of Canada. However, what gave him the greatest pleasure were the accomplishments of his students. Cameron also distinguished himself in professional and community service. He was a referee for numerous scholarly journals and for National Science and Engineering Research Council of Canada and the National Research Council of Canada, a member of various technical committees of the Canadian Standards Association and the American Concrete Institute, and Chairman of the Board of the Border Cities Branch of the Engineering Institute of Canada. He served on the University of Windsor Senate and Board of Governors, the Council of Ontario Universities, the Board of Directors of the London Goodenough Association of Canada, and the Board of Windsor's Metropolitan Hospital. Cameron manifested his strong commitment to human rights through membership in Amnesty International and as an envoy of the First Unitarian Church, Toronto, to the United Nations Non-governmental Organization. Cameron's life was enriched by his love of art, music, and theatre. He was a voracious reader and a wonderful conversationalist. He travelled extensively, with favourite destinations being Great Britain and Nova Scotia. Cameron had a delightful and of ten mischievous sense of humour. His gregarious nature was a hallmark of who he was. He was comfortable in any social situation and had a marvellous capacity to put others at ease. A man of high principles and great integrity, he was exemplary in his loyalty and devotion to family and Friends. Cameron will be remembered as a true gentleman, and is held in the greatest respect and affection by all who were so very fortunate to know him. A celebration of Cameron's life will be held on Saturday, September 15, 2007 at 2: 00 p.m. at the First Unitarian Church, 175 St. Clair Avenue West, Toronto. Immediately following there will be a reception at the Church. As an expression of sympathy and respect donations may be made in Cameron's memory to the Doctor Cameron MacInnis Scholarship in the Faculty of Engineering, University of Windsor, c/o University Advancement, 401 Sunset Avenue, Windsor, Ontario N9B 3P4.

Three dead in murder-suicide
By Karen PINCHIN, Canadian Press, Wed., June 27, 2007
Toronto -- A 13-year-old girl who just celebrated her elementary school graduation ran bloodied and screaming from her suburban home as she fled a crime scene that police called a double-murder suicide yesterday.
While authorities remain tight-lipped about their investigation, saying only that a 32-year-old man killed two women, aged 78 and 47, before taking his own life Monday night, neighbours said the man had recently lost his job as a machine technician.
The girl, her hair still in curls from the Grade 8 graduation ceremony, ran across the street sobbing and bleeding before she collapsed on a neighbour's front lawn, witnesses: said.
Ria HOSEIN, who lives in the house where the girl collapsed, said the teen's name is Anna HO and she was "covered in blood" and screamed, "my mom is going to die, my mom is going to die."
HOSEIN said the girl's biological father lives in China.
HOSEIN's husband Tony, who called police, said when he helped the girl up "she almost collapsed."
Neighbours identified the man living in the home as Alton BECKFORD and said he had recently been fired from his job and acting erratically.
While police said there were no plans to release the victims' names, neighbours said BECKFORD lived in the house with his common-law wife, Amy IAM, and her mother, as well as IAM's two children from a previous marriage.
Municipal records indicate the home was owned by both BECKFORD and IAM.
Police said all three bodies were discovered Monday evening on the main floor of the two-storey home, but would not confirm reports that the women had been fatally stabbed. The teen girl's 17-year-old brother was not at home at the time, said HOSEIN.
HOSEIN said his youngest daughter is a classmate and good friend of the girl, and attended the same graduation.

Neighbours noticed man's strange mood before killings
By Alex DOBROTA with a report from Timothy APPLEBY, Page A13
Toronto -- Outside his Scarborough house, Alton BECKFORD showed the buoyant face of a loving husband, a man often seen at barbecues and one who installed a basketball net on his driveway for neighbouring children.
But at other times, sources say, he was violent. One neighbour said yesterday that he had beaten his stepdaughter. And a source close to the investigation told The Globe and Mail that he is suspected of having attempted to sexually molest a teenaged girl.
Mr. BECKFORD, 32, is believed to have killed himself after stabbing to death his wife, 47, and his mother-in-law, 78.
The domestic tragedy unfolded Monday night, less than 30 minutes after he drove his family home from his stepdaughter's graduation at a nearby school, where they cheered the girl who had won a history award and made the honour roll.
The girl, 13, escaped the house bleeding from slash wounds, still wearing her graduation dress. She screamed: "Alton killed my mother!" one neighbour recalled.
Born in Jamaica, Mr. BECKFORD settled on quiet Knowles Drive three years ago. He moved in with his common-law partner, a Hong Kong émigré and her two children. The couple bought a red-brick townhouse with a double garage on a $175,000 mortgage.
The woman was overjoyed with her new life, neighbours said. She had escaped an abusive husband in Hong Kong, a neighbour said. And Mr. BECKFORD even helped her find a job at a factory where he worked as a technician.
But that picture started showing cracks last year, according to a friend of the girl.
"Almost all the time she called me on the phone and she started crying and she told me how he hit her with a belt," said Brittney LEE, 14.
Brittney said the girl called police this year to report the abuse. When officers showed up at the house, she changed her story, afraid her mother would suffer if Mr. BECKFORD was arrested, Brittney said.
Police could not confirm yesterday whether officers responded to a domestic call.
His stepson, 17, dropped out of high school and avoided Mr. BECKFORD whenever possible, Brittney said.
Reports of the man's violent side came as a shock to his neighbours.
Some said Mr. BECKFORD was often seen driving his stepdaughter to school. He also attended get-togethers in the neighbourhood.
Most neighbours agree, though, that his mood changed about one month ago, when he was fired from his job. He was seen brooding and complaining of headaches. Restless, he wandered around the neighbourhood, asking for Tylenol and Advil.
Yesterday morning, drips of blood still stained the white wooden railing of a neighbouring veranda, where the girl had collapsed bleeding and screaming for help the night before.
Behind the police tape that cordoned off her house's front lawn, a banner in Chinese characters gleamed. It read: "Congratulations! Wish you fortune! Wish you wealth!"

Following her retirement in 1987, Betty and Bill made their home in Burlington where they enjoyed family get-togethers, celebrations and many cultural and sporting events. A lifelong reader, Betty especially appreciated her book club. She taught and regularly attended aquafit classes at the Y. She looked forward to bridge games, fun luncheons and walks in Spencer Smith Park. She was an active member of the Newcomers Club.
