'He was a really good boy'
Relatives describe the 40-year-old as courteous and devoted to his mother. He led a quiet life, collecting maps and cataloguing the countries of the world - including the one in which he died
By Doug SAUNDERS, Compiled by Rick CASH, Page A1
Pieszyce, Poland -- During his 40 years of life here in the sleepy towns of western Poland, Robert DZIEKANSKI developed the hobby of collecting maps and cataloguing information about the countries of the world. He had a special fondness for Canada.
His closest relatives, in their first interview with the news media, portrayed him yesterday as a big, gentle man who, aside from his cartographic hobby, saw his main social connection and closest friend as his mother. His aunt and uncle remembered a courteous man who had an only child's devotion to his mother, and a life that was in some ways lonely and solitary, but also well organized and happy.
So it was especially heart-wrenching for the family here to learn that Mr. DZIEKANSKI, on his first trip abroad, died after being tasered by Royal Canadian Mounted Police officers at Vancouver International Airport, where he had been held up for 10 hours while trying to find his mother.
"He was a really good boy, really interested in geography and the countries of the world, that was his hobby," said Zdzislaw DZIEKANSKI, 52, his mother's younger brother. "He thought about that, and he thought about his mother."
The scenes of Mr. DZIEKANSKI flailing and screaming in desperation seem incomprehensible to these relatives. They say he did not have a short temper and had given no indication that he would react in such a way to a difficult and confusing situation.
"His mother really looked after him; he was really well cared for," his uncle said. "He wasn't any kind of a hooligan or anything like that. He was calm and peaceful."
Mr. DZIEKANSKI had been coming to meet his mother, Zofia Helena CISOWSKI, and her Polish-Canadian husband of eight years to start a new life.
"He wanted to get back to his mother. That was all he wanted," said Teresa DZIEKANSKI, Robert's aunt, who explained that his mother had launched a cleaning business and Robert was eager to join her. "The real dream for him was to be with his mother. Everything else would just come naturally."
As the DZIEKANSKIs spoke yesterday afternoon, the phone rang. It was Robert's mother, calling from Kamloops at 4 o'clock in the morning. She couldn't sleep, tortured by thoughts of her son. Despite warnings from relatives, she had seen some of the amateur video that shows him dying in pain and confusion. Leaked onto the Internet, the footage has sent waves of outrage around the world.
"How could they [kill] the only one who mattered to me?" she asked from Kamloops, in Polish. "He was the precious one. He was my beloved son."
In 1967, when Robert was still a baby, Ms. DZIEKANSKI found herself alone with her son; family members declined to discuss the circumstances behind the father's absence.
"The father had vanished, so the mother had brought him up alone, from babyhood. It was tough, but everyone managed," Zdzislaw DZIEKANSKI said. "They became really close, like best Friends, the way only children sometimes do. They really loved each other and spent all their time together."
The uncle, although only a dozen years older than his nephew, developed something of a fatherly relationship with Robert. "He was more than just a nephew to me. I was 12 when I first held him in my arms, and from then, he always felt like a son to me."
Robert did reasonably well in school, especially in geography. He and his mother moved to Gliwice, about 200 kilometres from here, but stayed close to the family in Pieszyce. During Poland's final Communist years, in the late 1980s, he worked as a typesetter. Then he found work in the coal mines. The last two years, he had been unemployed, collecting state benefits.
Eight years ago, his mother fell in love with a Polish-born man who had set down roots in Canada. She married and moved to Canada, hoping to pave the way for her son to immigrate.
He lived alone in a flat in Gliwice, but saw the family frequently. He had never married, and his relatives say they don't know of any serious relationships with women. "There was a lady who cleaned the flat, washed his clothes and so on, a maid. But no other women around him. He would stay at home, not go out at night."
But, while he lived the life of a loner, he was far from disengaged. His relatives say that he was a warm and eager participant in family gatherings, and that he was especially meticulous in keeping his apartment organized and maintaining his map collection. "He was a really thoughtful man," said his aunt. "He always remembered the holidays -- Easter, name days -- he would always send some nice cards, decorated in his special style."
While he had never strayed far from his birthplace, his family were no strangers to the difficulties of migration. They had originally lived in the far east of what was then Poland, until Joseph Stalin expelled the ethnic Poles from the land after the war, claiming the region for Ukraine. They were forced to march across the country to the western region of Silesia, a former German province that had been awarded to Poland as a war reparation, its German residents evicted.
So Robert's grandfather, a shopkeeper, made an awkward start here, keeping the family going in small rented apartments. The post-Communist years were difficult for the family, but they held together. Now they are watching as the town, with a population of 10,000, loses its youngest generation in another great migration, this one to Britain, Ireland and North America. A surprising number of people here have moved to Nottingham, England.
The DZIEKANSKIs are the only ones they know who have attempted a move to Canada. Zdzislaw DZIEKANSKI, who is skilled in a number of home-building trades, knows that his skills would put him in demand abroad, as would his wife's experience working for medical clinics.
Teresa DZIEKANSKI reacted with alarm to this suggestion.
"We can't even think of moving to another country, Zdzislaw," she said. "I couldn't do it, after learning what can happen to people."
The fateful trip
Pieszyce, Poland, 3 a.m.
Robert DZIEKANSKI's journey to Canada began in Poland at about 3 a.m. on October 13, when he left his hometown of Pieszyce for a flight to Germany.
Frankfurt, 12: 15 p.m.
He met a connecting flight on Air Condor departing Frankfurt International Airport at 12: 15 p.m. for Vancouver. The 40-year-old construction worker, who spoke no English and had never travelled on an airplane before, was emigrating to Canada to join his mother, Zofia CISOWSKI, 61, who lives in Kamloops.
Vancouver, 3 p.m.
Mr. DZIEKANSKI's direct flight from Europe arrived at Vancouver International Airport about 3 p.m. His mother, who has been in Canada about seven years, had arranged to meet him at the baggage carousel in the international terminal, unaware that this was inside a secure area. Outside, in the public area, his mother spent nearly six hours pacing the corridors, and, in broken English, asking airport officials for help in locating her son. At about 10 p.m. she left after being told her son wasn't there. She made the five-hour drive home, only to find a phone message waiting, saying her son had been found.
Vancouver, 10: 30 p.m.
Mr. DZIEKANSKI passed through initial customs screening about one hour after his flight had arrived from Germany, but then spent almost 6½ hours in the baggage-claim area. At 10: 30 p.m. airport officials helped him find his luggage. Two hours later, he had passed through immigration and exited the secure area of the airport. He then tried to re-enter the controlled area, eventually succeeding, but growing increasingly frustrated and eventually becoming frantic.

BUNDY, Helen MacDonald "Donnie"
Passed away peacefully at age 71 on November 7, 2007 at Perram House in Toronto. Donnie was born in Cooperstown, New York on December 18, 1935, and moved to Canada (Montreal, Québec) with her family in 1974. She loved Québec and Canada and was proud to become a Canadian citizen in 2002. Donnie will be remembered by those who knew her as an independent thinker and true original character with a profound love for literature and political talk (typically over a cigarette and glass of wine), and profound distrust of all things Republican or Conservative! She attended St. Lawrence University in Canton, New York and graduated in 1957 with a B.A. in English and Minors in History and Radio. While at St. Lawrence she was a member of an Honors Sorority (Alpha Delta Pi) and won a best actress award for her portrayal of Lady Macbeth in a student production there. She also attended the Banff School of Fine Arts in 1958 and the Catholic University in Washington, D.C. She later obtained a Master of Library Science degree from Indiana University in 1972. Donnie was also a long time volunteer reader for the Canadian National Institute for the Blind in Toronto. She was married to Richard A. EARLE, of Mt. View, New York, for 20 years and had four children (Ward, Christopher, Clinton and Caroline) and six grandchildren (Sam, Lucy, Lydia, Liam, Andrew and Nathaniel). She will be sadly missed by her children, grandchildren, daughters-in-law Shari HOLLETT, Oona CASS and Ruth FARRUGIA, and son-in-law Christopher RICE, and always remembered as a thoughtful and loving Mother and Grandma. The family would like to express their deep appreciation to the staff and volunteers of Perram House for their warm care and attention to Donnie and her family in her final days and would ask that expressions of sympathy in Donnie's memory be made in the form of a donation to Perram House. Donnie has requested that her ashes be scattered and a tree planted in her memory at Saint_James' Cemetery at 635 Parliament St. in Toronto.

CASSEL, Pearl Georgina (née PAGE,) M.Ed.
on July 3rd, 2007, age 75, of heart failure after a long battle with illness. Teacher, traveler, guidance counselor, author, naturalist, public speaker, patron of our native artists, cruise ship lecturer, photographer, fisherwoman, mother and grandmother. Born in Bengeo, England, Pearl studied science at the Universities of London and Southampton after turning down a scholarship that would have required her to study education. After three years in research pharmacology, her thirst for travel and adventure took her to North America, where she hitch-hiked through 40 states before serendipitously landing a short term teaching position in Toronto. Ironically, the experience discovered a passion for pedagogy that began a 35 year career in which she taught all elementary and high school grades, earned a Masters of Education at the University of Toronto and a Parent Education Diploma, and became a founding director of the Alfred Adler Institute of Ontario. With Doctor Rudolph DREIKURS, a colleague of Adler, she co-authored Discipline without Tears, a teacher and parent guide to managing primary school pupils through understanding motivation, which became an international bestseller translated into several languages. Pearl went on to author Why Kids Jump Over The Moon (Winner of the Elmer Huff Award, Ontario School Counselors Association) and, with co-author Doctor Raymond CORSINI, The Challenge of Adolescence (Writers Award, Federation of Women Teachers' Associations of Ontario) and Coping with Teenagers in a Democracy. The success of her books and her love of helping others resulted in invitations to deliver over 1000 keynote speeches and workshops throughout North America, including most of Canada's major universities and many remote locations where she introduced Adlerian, democracy-based teaching approach to First Nations educators. Pearl developed a deep appreciation for native art and relationships with native artists, including the Hunts in British Columbia and Goyce Kakegamic, for whom she helped to arrange an airlift of his work when his studio was threatened by forest fire. Following her retirement from the public school system, Pearl alternated residences in Toronto, Florida, Victoria and Vancouver and reapplied her skills to guiding and educating adults on cruise ships. Greatly distressed when she became unable to continue cruise ship lecturing, she applied her characteristic determination to find other venues in which to contribute to the community: providing telephone support to the housebound through community care; organizing trips and events for her residence and local clubs; and, in her last year, returning to assist in a local elementary school, which she found as rewarding as any of the experiences in her rich life. Pearl is survived by son Paul and granddaughters Camille and Celeste in Toronto and niece Linda in England. A celebration of Pearl will take place in the banquet room at 1880 Valley Farm Rd., Pickering, where she lived, on Friday, July 20th from 3: 00 to 5:30 p.m. Donations in lieu of flowers may be made to the Pickering Naturalists, Box 304, Pickering, Ontario.

He represented 'Toronto the clean' - at least abroad
He talked trash with the Soviets and lunched with the Queen while dealing with garbage strikes and layoffs
By Noreen SHANAHAN, Special to The Globe and Mail, Page S9
Toronto -- The man who made green garbage bags fashionable for curbside pickup back in the 1960s was Toronto streets commissioner Harold ATYEO. His mandate also included snow removal and the earliest attempts at recycling - for instance, "bundle up for Wednesday" newspaper pickup. According to former mayor David CROMBIE, who worked with Mr. ATYEO, his colleague's efforts were the likely inspiration behind Peter Ustinov's oft-quoted description of the city as "New York run by the Swiss."
Mr. ATYEO "was an excellent public servant with a strong interest in the city," Mr. CROMBIE said. "In those days, Toronto had a great reputation as a city that works, as 'Toronto the clean,' and Harold made an enormous contribution toward that."
One of his more popular legacies was a service that allowed senior citizens to have their sidewalks shovelled for them, free of charge. He was also involved in restoring the historic St. Lawrence Market and Town Hall to their 19th-century splendour.
It wasn't all laurels, however. As streets commissioner, Mr. ATYEO faced garbage strikes, inclement weather and bad tempers as one of the most picked-on bureaucrats at city hall, frequently blamed for snowdrifts, stinky streets and litter.
Opinions differ as to whether Mr. ATYEO was a visionary or a pragmatist, but his efforts took him as far afield as the Kremlin, New York and Buckingham Palace.
"He was a strong proponent of things that simply made sense," said his son Mark. "In Moscow, he was struck by the non-unionized babushkas picking up street litter with corn brooms."
Harold ATYEO was the second of three children born in Camden, Ontario, to Jesse May (MANLEY) and Frank Wesley ATYEO. In 1920, when he was 2, his family purchased a farm in Lethbridge, Alberta. He told stories about heading into town for supplies with his older brother William and passing a community of Blood Indians, who were living in tepees along the Oldman River Valley.
In 1923, the family moved back to St. Catharines, Ontario, where his father worked first as a blacksmith, then as a hydro linesman until an injury ended his career. As a teenager during the Depression, Harold delivered newspapers and stocked grocery shelves to help support the family. In 1938, he attended teachers college at the Toronto Normal School (now part of Ryerson University) and began his first assignment a year later, on the day Germany invaded Poland and the Second World War began.
He soon became principal of a two-room schoolhouse in Amherstburg, Ontario In 1943, conflicted about not being part of the war, he left teaching and joined Ferry Command in Montreal, where he worked as an air navigation instructor. In 1944, at the age of 26, he realized that because of a punctured eardrum, he'd never get his wings. Hoping to at least get closer to the action, he joined the merchant marine.
The war ended shortly after his first trip across the Atlantic, however, and he returned to the family home, which by then was in Windsor, Ontario He took a job as an inventory clerk at a department store. The war widow who hired him was Margaret Loretta CASSON - they married in 1948 and moved to Fredericton, where he obtained an engineering degree. After moving back to Ontario two years later, he began his career in municipal engineering.
In 1953, he took a position as an engineer with the Township of North York, which was amalgamated into the City of Toronto the following year. In 1964, he took a job as commissioner of the streets department in the city of Toronto and moved into an office in the new City Hall. One of his early tasks included posting newspaper notices urging citizens to "clean up, paint up, don't be a litter bug."
From there, he moved on to being a kind of ambassador for the city, culminating in a trip to Moscow in 1968, in the thick of the Cold War, to meet with Soviet premier Alexey Kosygin and make suggestions about such issues as street cleaning, snow removal and synchronized traffic lights.
Ben GRYS, who was chairman of Toronto's public works department at the time, joined Mr. ATYEO in Moscow. He remembers his colleague as approachable and open-minded, but noted: "He wouldn't mind getting into a real knock-'em-out discussion to prove his point, and in most cases, he was right."
On the way back from the Soviet Union, Mr. and Mrs. ATYEO stopped off for a luncheon hosted by the Queen at Buckingham Palace. Although this luncheon made for a good family story, his son said nobody knew exactly why his parents were invited in the first place.
In 1972, Mr. ATYEO instituted another significant change by reducing Toronto's curbside garbage pickup to once a week, from twice. "It would be a nice, clean operation," he told The Globe and Mail at the time.
The schedule shift was an important step along the road toward the kind of recycling and composting initiatives the city has in place today, with garbage now picked up only once every two weeks. Nevertheless, when it was implemented, critics saw it as anything but clean. A union spokesman representing garbage collectors told the Toronto Star that once-a-week pickups would result in the trash "being carted off by maggots… hopefully they'll walk in the direction of the garbage trucks." There were also layoffs.
The streets and works departments merged in 1972 and fell under the jurisdiction of commissioner Ray BREMNER. Mr. ATYEO lost his title and reluctantly moved into a new position in the property department.
One of his last major projects for the city was in 1974, restructuring St. Lawrence Market and Town Hall. "They re-established the St. Lawrence Hall and did a lot of renovation in the South Market," Mr. CROMBIE said. "And here we are, 33 years later, [planning to] change the St. Lawrence Hall into the Toronto museum… Harold would have understood the vision."
Mr. ATYEO left Toronto in 1976 to take a job as superintendent of works in Gravenhurst, Ontario, where he worked until retiring a decade later. The end of his career, however, harked back to his schoolhouse roots: He temporarily went back to work as a supply teacher, teaching shop.
Harold ATYEO was born June 24, 1918, in Camden, Ontario, and died of cancer August 26, 2007. He was 89. He is predeceased by wife Margaret and leaves children Frank, Candace, Susan, Debra, Mark and Jo.

Trooper died doing what he believed in
By Jered STUFFCO, Canadian Press, Wed., June 13, 2007
Clarington -- Trooper Darryl CASWELL's family was waiting for a phone call from half a world away Monday to mark his brother's birthday at the family home in this quiet bedroom community east of Toronto.
Instead came the knock at the door that every military family dreads, and the terrible news that CASWELL had become the 57th Canadian soldier to die in Afghanistan when his vehicle struck an improvised explosive device.
"He was going to do all he could to call," stepmother Christine CASWELL said yesterday.
"It wasn't the call we were expecting."
CASWELL had six weeks left in Afghanistan before he was set to return home, she added.
"He was due to come back on his birthday on the 31st of July," she said. "He was so young, he had so much to do and (so much) he wanted to do."
CASWELL, 25, was a member of the Royal Canadian Dragoons, based in Petawawa. He was deployed with Reconnaissance Squadron from the 2nd Battalion of the Royal Canadian Regiment battle group.
He was riding in the lead vehicle in what the Canadian Forces call a combat logistics patrol -- a perilous mission that involves restocking forward operating bases and soldiers in the field with everything from ammunition and equipment to rations and water.
CASWELL had been serving in Afghanistan since January, his stepmother said. "He was doing what he wanted to do and what he believed in."
The convoy was en route to the district of Khakriz in northwestern Kandahar province when it struck the improvised explosive device an ever-present threat in Canada's ongoing battle with Taliban insurgents in Afghanistan.
CASWELL was helping to provide security for the convoy as it travelled along a secondary road 40 kilometres north of the city of Kandahar when it was struck.
Over the course of the day, a Facebook page created in CASWELL's memory continued to grow with expressions of grief and condolence from Friends, many of whom were former high school classmates.
"I was in my kitchen making coffee when I heard the name over the news," wrote Pippa BOOTHMAN, a university student in London, who said the news left her heartbroken.
"I have only seen Darryl a few times since high school, however those are moments that never go away… Live, love (and) laugh is what Darryl did."
Another high school friend, Michelle RICHARD, expressed support for those Canadians who are willing to put their lives on the line for the sake of their country.
"How sad it is… we are so blessed to have people like him willing to stand up and protect us every day. And too often we lose them," she wrote.

'He couldn't wait to come home'
Killed in roadside bombing, soldier was a funny, down-to-earth guy, friend says
By Matt HARTLEY, Page A16
It was after dinner on Logan CASWELL's 12th birthday when Canadian military officials showed up at the door to deliver the grimmest news possible: Logan's big brother, Trooper Darryl CASWELL, was dead, the latest Canadian soldier to be killed in a roadside bombing in Afghanistan.
Logan's was not the only birthday that would forever after carry a dark taint: Trooper CASWELL was set to come back on July 31st, the day he would have turned 26.
"I still can't believe that he's gone," his stepmother Christine CASWELL told The Globe and Mail from the family's Clarington home, about an hour east of Toronto. "I'm just still in denial. He couldn't wait to come home."
Ms. CASWELL said her stepson was looking forward to being an "average Joe" again. Her husband Paul, Trooper CASWELL's father, had spoken with him by phone Saturday, and what would turn out to be the last e-mail from their son arrived from Afghanistan on Sunday.
Trooper CASWELL was killed while travelling with a convoy carrying supplies to a forward operating base in Khakriz, a northwestern district of Kandahar province, about 40 kilometres north of Kandahar City, when a roadside bomb exploded near his vehicle at 6: 25 a.m. local time. Two other soldiers were injured in the blast and transported via helicopter to Kandahar airfield for medical treatment. Both are expected to recover and return to active duty soon. He was the third member of the Royal Canadian Dragoons, based out of Canadian Forces Base Petawawa near Ottawa, to be killed by Taliban attacks in the past three months. Trooper CASWELL was deployed as part of the Reconnaissance Squadron from the 2nd Battalion of the Royal Canadian Regiment battle group.
Those who served with Trooper CASWELL remembered him as a tough soldier and tireless worker who was never afraid to speak his mind. Trooper Keith Rombough, was a member of that same group. Together they trained at Canadian Forces Base Petawawa, braved patrols in Afghanistan and slept through dusty nights in the same tent, talking of their families back in Canada.
He said Trooper CASWELL and the soldiers he rode with dubbed their vehicle Ghost Rider after the Marvel comic book character. Monday's explosion wasn't the first time Trooper CASWELL's patrol had been the target of a Taliban strike. A few months ago, during a similar patrol, a rocket attack blew the front wheels off his vehicle, Trooper Rombough said.
"He'd always joke around about it," he said. "He took a small amount of pride in that."
Trooper CASWELL was born in Bowmanville, Ontario, and his parents divorced when he was 2. Growing up, he spent time living with his mother in the Toronto satellite communities of Clarington and Whitby as well as Sarnia, Ontario, before moving in with his father and stepmother in Clarington when he was 12. When his father remarried, young Darryl CASWELL was best man.
"One thing I'll never forget was that when Paul proposed to me, Darryl got down on his hands and knees and proposed to me, too," Ms. CASWELL said. "He was such a character. He was a good kid, with a good heart." A funny, down-to-earth guy, that's how Matt ADAM/ADAMS, Trooper CASWELL's best friend of 12 years will always remember him. Being a soldier and serving his country was the fulfilment of a lifelong dream for Trooper CASWELL, Mr. ADAM/ADAMS said. It was all he talked about as a kid, and his face lit up when he spoke of his experiences with the military. A fierce patriot, Trooper CASWELL once jokingly chastised Mr. ADAM/ADAMS's father for flying a frayed Canadian flag in the family's backyard.
"It was pretty hilarious how he shamed him into getting a new one," Mr. ADAM/ADAMS said.
Just a few weeks ago, Trooper CASWELL and his crew took a few weeks of leave and travelled to Australia, where he met up with Kayla MYERS, an old friend from high school, now studying education there. It turns out she would be one of the last of his Friends to see him alive.
"He was very proud to serve his country. He was just such a great guy," she said.
Prime Minister Stephen Harper extended his sympathy to the CASWELL family and praised the ongoing efforts of Canadian soldiers in a written statement released yesterday.
