COTRONEO o@ca.on.york_county.toronto.toronto_star 2007-01-13 published
Bidding farewell to a kind soul
Family chose simple, unadorned casket, befitting the humble nature of officer who helped so many
By Christian COTRONEO, staff reporter with files from Joanna SMITH, Page B3
The casket Anil AHLOWALIA chose for his younger brother Davis was oak, without stain or ornament.
It was much like one the brothers had seen on television more than a year ago for the burial of Pope John Paul II.
"We saw this simple casket and we said, 'That's the way people should be buried -- humbleness, right to the hour of death and beyond,'" Anil recalled.
So when the AHLOWALIA family had to choose a casket for Davis, they looked past the ornate, expensive models.
"We saw one that was just oak," Anil said. "No stain. No glamour. It was made for Davis."
Only it was made too early.
Davis AHLOWALIA was killed on January 6, 2007, when an oncoming van unaccountably swerved into his lane on Major Mackenzie Doctor in Vaughan. The 28-year-old York Regional Police officer was off duty at the time.
In all, the fiery crash claimed four victims. The driver of the van, Waleed SHAUKAT, 17, and 19-year-old passenger Sulman YUSAF died on the scene.
The driver's mother, Mansoora SHAUKAT, said yesterday in a telephone interview that she was sorry to learn her son's other close friend, Muhammed MATTU, had succumbed to his injuries Thursday night after spending the week in hospital in critical condition.
"A very cute boy, Muhammed," she said.
She remembers the 17-year-old, whose family she said lives in the Peace Village neighbourhood of Maple, Ontario, often coming home with her son to watch movies or eat pizza in the basement.
"They were very close Friends, all three -- Muhammed, Sulman and Waleed."
Yesterday 1,000 mourners -- more than the church could bear -- attended the funeral for the fallen officer.
For a few frozen moments, traffic along a bustling four-block stretch of Yonge St. in Richmond Hill was hushed. Police officers held cars at bay. The soft strains of a devotional hymn floated outside Saint Mary Immaculate Roman Catholic Church.
Scores more officers -- Royal Canadian Mounted Police in scarlet and polished leather riding boots, York Regional Police in red-brimmed caps and Ontario Provincial Police officers in full regalia -- lined the church steps outside. When the oak casket emerged, they held a long salute, bidding a final farewell to one of their own.
"Although he only served for a short time, he made an incredible impact on our community," said York Regional Police Chief Armand LA BARGE after the service. "Every human contact, every radio call, every interaction that he had, he brought his Christian values to the forefront and helped people."
A fervent Christian, AHLOWALIA travelled to impoverished regions of the world whenever he could, persuading his fellow officers to lend a hand to an orphanage in Jamaica, and helping the poor in Calcutta, India.
Parents and older brothers joined a grim procession of family, following the casket down the church steps. "Today, I had the difficult task of burying my brother," said Anil AHLOWALIA, his voice breaking, as he spoke after the funeral. "It's one of the hardest things I've ever had to do in my life."
Chris GRANT, who attended Saint Michael's College School with AHLOWALIA, joined about 100 former schoolmates and teachers at the service, many wearing their school ties in memory of the departed.
"I mostly remember him walking around on game days, wearing his football jersey," GRANT said. "He was very proud to be on the team."
GRANT recalled his schoolmate wanted to be a priest -- "but decided to serve his community in a different way."
That desire led AHLOWALIA to police college, where he met Ryan STEVENSON, also training to be an officer.
"He would always take time out of his day to stop and say hello, ask how you are and how your family is," said STEVENSON, now a special constable with York Regional Police.
Even then, it was obvious that AHLOWALIA's ambitions went beyond the badge. "He used policing as a springboard into what he did in the community," said STEVENSON.
Indeed, during the hiring process, AHLOWALIA was asked why he wanted to become a police officer -- and, according to Chief LA BARGE, he answered, "to help people in the most need."

Brian COTTERILL: 55
Drummer Sang Lead On Hit Single 'Gypsy'
By Staff, Page S8
Uxbridge, Ontario -- Brian COTTERILL, vocalist and drummer for the top-40 pop group Abraham's Children, died of cancer yesterday. He was 55.
The band, which included Jimi BERTUCCI, Bob McPHERSON and Ron BARTLEY, was formed in 1968 and played under a series of names including Captain Midnight's Dirty Feet before settling on Abraham's Children. In 1971, the band was part of a legendary concert on Toronto's Centre Island and released Hot Love, it's first hit. Later, it enjoyed success with such songs as Goodbye Farewell, Goddess of Nature and Thank You. Their biggest hit, Gypsy, was a single for which Mr. COTTERILL sang lead vocals.
The group disbanded in 1976 but reunited three years ago for a series of reunion concerts at venues across Southern Ontario. More recently, Mr. COTTERILL formed a new band called Trypp and recorded two CDs with fellow musicians Paul CORMIER, Richard JOUDREY and a performer known as "Screamin' E."
