Detective with a steel-trap memory excelled at undercover surveillance
He did everything from wire tapping to following vehicles, even though weaving in and out of traffic while remaining undetected by a suspect is not for everyone
By Alwynne GWILT, Special to The Globe and Mail, Page S10
John (Freebie) FREEMAN was a York Regional detective in Ontario who never gave up a case until all the parts of the puzzle were perfectly in place. For much of his career, he was a surveillance expert with a steel-trap memory who knew the name, address and activities of every bad guy in his bailiwick.
The son of a dentist father and a homemaker mother, he grew up in a two-storey brick home on Chine Drive in Scarborough, now part of Toronto. As a boy, he was surrounded by a large extended family. In 1964, his father and uncle bought an outdoor skating rink that they called Little Switzerland; it was the job of the family men to keep it up, packing snow down and flooding it on cold winter nights. He spent a couple of winters with his cousin, Greg, working at the rink, before both families decided to go rural and move to the village of Zephyr, just north of Uxbridge, Ontario, where home became about 80 hectares of blissful farmland. Along with his cousins, he bused 15 kilometres every day to attend secondary school in Uxbridge.
But country life was not for him. As soon as he turned 19, he joined the Toronto Metro Police. For a young man who loved almost any kind of motor vehicle, the highlight of joining so young was to be assigned the use of a Harley Davidson police motorcycle. They were fast times: From his motor bikes to his new job and a marriage at 21 to Ellen Dianne HENDERSON, Mr. FREEMAN left city life nearly as quickly as he entered it. After only four years in Toronto, he moved north to York Regional Police, where he would spend the rest of his career. In 1975, he began work as a uniformed officer in Newmarket, Ontario
Five years later, he was selected to be part of York Region's first surveillance unit. He had a near-photographic memory that was perfect for the job, and there was rarely a criminal whose name, address and activities he did not know by heart or could not recount easily to colleagues. Friends considered him a walking computer and liked to ask random questions simply to see whether he knew the answer.
As part of the Special Sections Unit, his work entailed everything from wire tapping to following vehicles. It was his love of driving that really cut him out as the person to tail cars. Weaving in and out of traffic while remaining undetected by the suspect is not a job for every police officer, but it was a skill that Mr. FREEMAN mastered, according to York Regional Police Chief Armand LA BARGE.
"If you're careless, you'd never survive," Mr. LA BARGE said. "But he had abilities beyond the norm, and there was a passion in Craig."
But Mr. FREEMAN possessed more than just memory skills and excelled at connecting with people through his quiet wit and friendly manner. Known as Freebie, he possessed a relaxed demeanour that came in handy when a situation needed to be defused. Answering a complaint about a noisy bar in nearby Vaughan, he convinced the owner that, rather than trying to lower the decibels, maybe the party should be fully shut down. Where most police officers would get an angry response, Mr. FREEMAN found respect.
Colleagues said you could also never tell whether he was serious or joking. Wes BONNER, his former partner, liked to recount the story of a female officer from outside the district who arrived dressed in a leather outfit.
"I just love a woman when she dresses in leather," remarked Mr. FREEMAN.
"What do you mean by that?" she asked.
"Well, you smell like a new car."
During the early years in surveillance, Mr. FREEMAN became especially close to his team, since the unit's six or seven members worked the same hours. They spent off-time together, sometimes becoming close enough to share Christmas holidays or vacation trips. It wasn't easy work and could be dangerous, investigating organized crime, auto theft and motorcycle gangs. After only a couple of years, Mr. FREEMAN was promoted to detective and took over running his team.
Everyone in the unit knew they had to pull their weight to meet his expectations. Mr. FREEMAN saw hard work as simply keeping up the standards he felt every officer should share - in the work, the uniform or even the vehicle they drove. As detective, most of his work should have been focused behind the desk or in administrative duties, but he could often be seen hopping in a car with colleagues and chasing after criminals.
During this time, he separated from and then divorced his wife. Later, he met Daneen RAE, a fellow police officer. The two became close and moved in together. In the mid-1980s, Ms. RAE was diagnosed with leukemia and given just three months to live. He stuck with her and she fought on for more than three years before dying in 1988. Not long afterward, Mr. FREEMAN transferred out of the special sections unit.
In April of 1994, he unexpectedly experienced a change in his social life that would set the course for years to come. At 42, he met the love of his life on a blind date set up by one of her Friends. Craig FREEMAN and Doctor Carol ROLHEISER made an unusual couple: She was an associated dean at the Ontario Institute of Studies in Education, while he was deep in the subculture of law enforcement.
In 1997, they married. But while honeymooning in San Francisco, Mr. FREEMAN began having problems with pain in his feet. When he returned to work, he began a quest to find out what on earth was troubling him. Over the next couple of years, he tried to figure out the cause, but he and his doctors remained puzzled. When he was finally hospitalized because of a blood clot, doctors suggested amputating his legs. That struck him as a ridiculous notion.
Dr. ROLHEISER called in some favours through her university network and the couple found a doctor who finally solved the mystery. Three years in, Mr. FREEMAN found out he was suffering from POEMS syndrome, a very rare blood disorder with no real explanation that doctors believe may involve an overgrowth of bone-marrow cells. Its unusual acronym is made up from elements of its most common symptoms: Polyneuropathy (peripheral nerve damage); organomegaly (abnormal enlargement of organs); endocrinopathy (damage to hormone-producing glands)/Edema; M protein (an abnormal antibody); and skin abnormalities.
In the end, doctors had to amputate one leg below the knee. For the next seven years, Mr. FREEMAN maintained a positive attitude and acquired all the gadgets necessary to outfit a van in a way that would allow him to motor on. Although he technically semi-retired in 1999, he remained a member of the police force and delighted in finding his Friends gifts on the Internet. Sometimes, colleagues would open the door to discover a new kitchen gadget or even, since he was the "world's biggest Jimmy Buffet fan," the latest margarita machine.
This year, with his health deteriorating, Mr. FREEMAN drove himself to his official retirement ceremony, but fell very ill in August. In hospital, he charmed the staff with his attitude. Even in his last days, his humour was not to be messed with.
"Do you know you are in Toronto General Hospital?" asked Doctor ROLHEISER, testing his cognition.
"Well, I'm not in Kansas City," he replied.
John Craig FREEMAN was born in Toronto on July 6, 1952. He died at Toronto General Hospital on August 19, 2007. He was 55. He is survived by his wife, Carol ROLHEISER, and his brother, Mark FREEMAN. He also leaves many others in his extended family.

McINTOSH, Mavis Irene (formerly KNOWLES, née MALLINSON)
It is with great sadness that the three children of Mavis Irene Knowles McINTOSH announce her passing on June 2, 2007, at the age of 86. Mom passed away peacefully in her sleep at the Village of Sandalwood Park Nursing Home, Brampton, Ontario. Beloved wife and companion for 15 years of John Albert McINTOSH who passed away in 2004. Loving and devoted wife for 29 years of Frederick KNOWLES who passed away in 1972. Loving mother and mother-in-law of Rosemary and Harvey BRUNER, Carolyn KNOWLES and Guy BONNETTA, and Ansy KROUGLICOF and Harold KNOWLES. Dear grandmother of Katie (Neil MARUOKA), Emily (Vadim KAZAKOV), Jennifer, Maggie, Heidi, Andrew, Nicholas, and Jonathan. Mom's last outing was on April 25th, 2007 when she visited her great-granddaughter Molly Noelle MARUOKA who was just nine days old. Mavis will be sadly missed by her brothers and sisters-in-law Nancy and Kenneth MALLINSON (Langley, British Columbia), Pat BURNS and John MALLINSON (Lachine, Quebec), Audrey KNOWLES (Pointe Claire, Quebec), Mary BRANDON (Fenelon Falls, Ontario,) and Isobel and Doug CLERK (Fenelon Falls, Ontario,) her nieces, nephews and cousins. Mavis is predeceased by her brothers Robert and Harold MALLINSON. She has relatives and Friends right across Canada, from British Columbia to the Atlantic Provinces and will be fondly remembered by them all. Mom was born in Montreal on July 9th, 1920, the daughter of Donalda Grace (WOOD) and George James MALLINSON. She graduated from West Hill High School in 1938. After completing a secretarial course, she worked at Ciba Company and Allied War Supplies. As the daughter of an National Hockey League referee, she had a great love of sports throughout her life. She was a member of the Notre-Dame de Grace Tennis Club and spent many winter weekends in the Laurentians skiing. After her marriage to Fred in 1943, the couple enjoyed teaching their children how to have fun. Ice skating, swimming, bike riding, fishing and going on picnics were family pastimes. For many years, Mavis and Fred were enthusiastic members of the Montreal West Curling Club. Mom was also an active member of Westmount Baptist Church and taught Bible study at the church's summer retreat in the Eastern Townships, Cedar Lodge. In 1979, Mom moved to Brampton to be closer to her grandchildren. She took up lawn bowling and joined the local Brampton club. In early 1989, Mom was introduced to John McINTOSH. The happy couple married and moved to Belleville where they enjoyed visits with John's family. Mom was a member of the Belleville Newcomers Club and Ladies Euchre Group. As well as ensuring her children were well educated, Mom passed on to them a great love of music. She was herself part of many musical organizations. She sang in the Westmount Baptist Choir and the Brampton Choral Society, and was a member of the Sandalwood Chime Choir. She loved listening to performances of the Metropolitan Opera on the radio and tolerated her son's rock band practices in the basement of the Belmore Avenue home. Mom was a helpful daughter, a caring sister, a good wife and a wonderful mother. She was a proud and loving grandmother. Most important of all, you could not ask for a better friend. We will all miss her infectious laugh. Many thanks to the staff at Sandalwood who looked after Mom with kindness, patience, and understanding. Also, thank-you to the nursing staff in Ward 4A at the Peel Memorial Hospital. A private cremation has taken place. A memorial service will be held in the chapel at Montreal Memorial Park, 3955 Cote de Liesse, St. Laurent, Quebec, on June 23rd, 2007 at 12: 00 noon, followed by interment.

Fall from sport utility vehicle kills man
Matthew PRICE, 20, from Belmont was struck by the moving vehicle after he fell from it.
By Norman DE BONO, Sun Media, Mon., July 2, 2007
Things were just about to turn around for Matthew PRICE.
The young man from Belmont was to start his new job in the Liquor Control Board of Ontario warehouse on Wilton Grove Road tomorrow and that just may have given the 20-year-old the stability he needed, his mother, Sandra PRICE, said yesterday.
"He had some problems that a lot of teens have, but getting this job was really good for him. He was starting to turn a corner. Things were starting to go good for him."
Matthew PRICE was killed after he fell from the top of a moving sport utility vehicle about 2 p.m. Saturday at Stoney Point First Nations Territory off Army Camp Road.
He was struck by the sport utility vehicle, Lambton Ontario Provincial Police said. Alcohol was a factor in the death.
"The alcohol probably made him feel invincible, like it does for a lot of kids that age," his mother said.
The incident is still under investigation, Lambton Ontario Provincial Police Const. John Reurink said.
"We do not know what position he was on top, but that he was outside the vehicle and when they rounded a curve, he tumbled off and was struck," he said.
Police are not certain how fast the vehicle was moving, he said.
PRICE was pronounced dead at the scene. Three Friends were in the Chevrolet Blazer, said Ontario Provincial Police.
PRICE turned 20 on June 23.
"He celebrated with his Friends. He had all these plans," his mother said. "He could be a real joker. He had quite a sense of humour."
"Some times he would be singing and dancing with his buddies, acting real silly," his mother said.
The PRICE family operates the P.R.E. View video store in Belmont and community members have been rallying to support the family, even dropping off food, Sandra PRICE said.
Some family members are flying from Europe for the funeral, so arrangements will be finalized Wednesday at the Miller George funeral home on Ridout Street.
PRICE had attended Regina Mundi collegiate and East Elgin secondary school and completed his Grade 12 at South secondary school.
He was interested in skateboarding and had "an artistic flair," said Sandra.
PRICE is survived by two older brothers, Rick, 30, and Jeff, 29, and a younger sister, Melissa, 17, grandmother Joan TURNER, and father, Philip PRICE.
Both Philip and Sandra also work at the Victoria campus of the London Health Sciences Centre.

Desperate rescue bid fails
Relatives nearly drown trying to save a Quebec man presumed lost on Lake Huron.
By Norman DE BONO, Sun Media, Tues., July 3, 2007
A search continues yesterday along the shores of Lake Huron at Canatara Park in Sarnia for Mark DELISLE of Quebec, who is missing and presumed drowned after jumping from a boat on Canada Day. (Sue REEVE, Sun Media)
Sarnia -- Adel AMIN remembers the look on the face of his brother-in-law, just before he slipped beneath the waves of Lake Huron.
"It's like he was frozen in the water. He was not moving and I knew he was in trouble," said AMIN, 65.
He jumped in to try to save Mark DELISLE, 52, of Sherbrooke, Quebec
DELISLE's 16-year-old son also jumped in.
"(DELISLE) went under and he did not come up again. I did not see him again. We could not find him," AMIN said.
DELISLE, his son, an unidentified man and AMIN, of Sarnia, were in AMIN's 7.9-metre power boat in Lake Huron at the source of the St. Clair River about 1: 45 p.m. Sunday.
A bumper, used for docking, blew off the deck and into the water that had waves one to two metres high, Lambton Ontario Provincial Police said.
The boat circled back.
DELISLE, who was not wearing a lifejacket, jumped into the water to retrieve the bumper. He struggled to stay afloat.
"His son jumped in to try save him. He is only 16. He was so brave," AMIN said of the youth.
The boat was about 30 metres from shore and the powerful current and two-metre waves made rescue impossible and pushed AMIN and the man's son to the nearby beach.
"I almost drowned myself, the current was so strong," said AMIN.
"He was a wonderful man. Everyone loved him. He was so kind."
The boat drifted ashore at the tip of Canatara Beach.
Lambton Ontario Provincial Police's marine unit has been searching the water off Sarnia's Canatara Beach, where Lake Huron and the St. Clair River meet, since Sunday.
Dave BROWN, managing partner of the Bridgeview Marina and Sarnia Bay Marina, believes the incident is a tragic reminder how dangerous the waters at the river's mouth can be.
"It is tragic, very tragic. It can be very dangerous out there especially if the winds are blowing hard and they were blowing that day," BROWN said.
"There are strong currents, a strong undertow there. It shows us how powerful mother nature can be. You always have to be aware of the water."
AMIN moved to Sarnia about 20 years ago after working for United Technology Corp. in the United States.

Farmers mourn savvy advocate's death
Bob SHORE, 74, has died but dairy farmers won't soon forget his work in the industry.
By Norman DE BONO, Sun Media, Thurs., July 26, 2007
Dairy Farmers across the region are mourning the loss of a Port Stanley resident and national icon.
The death of Robert Hardy SHORE -- or Bob, to most -- means the agricultural community has lost one of the Canadian dairy industry's strongest advocates, the man responsible for helping establish a global export market for domestic dairy cattle.
"We have lost one of the pillars. He, along with his father (Hardy), merchandised an unbelievable amount of cattle," said Court CARMICHAEL, owner of Medway Farms Ltd. in Ilderton.
"He was a great guy. He would do anything for you. He was almost too giving at times but that made the markets grow. People trusted him."
The 74-year-old lived in Glanworth but retired to Port Stanley.
"He bought my grandfather out of the business in 1970, entered the international livestock market and pioneered exports to 62 countries," said SHORE's son, also named Hardy, who is president of Shore Holsteins Corp., near Saint Thomas.
Along with his business acumen, Hardy remembers his father as a "gentleman who never lost his cool. His handshake was good, you could take it to the bank."
After graduating from agricultural college in Guelph and attending a school of auctioneering in Indiana, SHORE joined his father's business, Shore Holsteins, in 1953.
When he became owner he changed the focus of the business from a regional auction enterprise specializing in dairy cattle to an international export firm.
"He was a good businessman and a hard, hard worker," said his son. "He loved the business and the people in it."
In 1964, Hardy began to merchandise genetics, setting record prices.
As an auctioneer, he set world records in individual prices for animals, sale averages and sale grosses in top breeder's and consignment sales in Canada and the U.S.
He auctioned off the world record-setting cow in Port Parry, at $1.45 million.
SHORE retired from active auctioneering in 1994.
"We travelled a lot of miles together and I can tell you, he was a fine man," said John WALKER, owner of Walker Dairy Sales Inc. in Aylmer. "He was the backbone of the Holstein industry&hellip we will miss him. He opened a lot of markets and had a great personality."
Since retiring seven years ago, SHORE took up golf, "which no one believed," said Hardy. "He took it up as a hobby and we expected to see him out there in cowboy boots and a hat."
SHORE was diagnosed with colon cancer four years ago but was later given a "clean bill of health," said Hardy. Two months ago the cancer returned to his bones. He was bed-ridden and in palliative care at Saint Thomas-Elgin General Hospital when he died Monday.
The funeral will be at First United Church in Saint Thomas tomorrow at 1 p.m. Interment to follow in Christ Church Cemetery. Visitation is today from 1 p.m. to 3 p.m. and 7 p.m. to 9 p.m. at Williams Funeral Home on Elgin Street in Saint Thomas.
Robert Hardy SHORE
- Inducted into the Canadian Agricultural Hall of Fame in November 1996. Judged dairy cattle on five continents.
- Founder and president of Shore Holsteins International Ltd. - President of the Elgin County Holstein Club.
- Founding member of the Canadian Livestock Exporters Association and twice president.
- Auctioneer for 58 years.
