He then attended the University of Toronto, graduating with a B.A. Sc. in 1946, M.A. Sc. in 1948 and PhD in 1951 as a member of the first graduating class of the Institute of Aerophysics. During the 1940s he worked for A.V. Roe (Avro) Canada. After completing his PhD, which involved the construction of a supersonic wind tunnel, he joined the National Research Council's National Aeronautical Establishment in Arnprior. He moved with the National Aeronautical Establishment to Ottawa in July 1953 and worked there until he moved to De Havilland Aircraft in Toronto in 1956. In 1966 he took the family to California, where he worked on Lockheed's Supersonic Transport. In 1967 he returned to Canada, working for a time in Kitchener establishing the new Conestoga College.

He was also a keen traveller and photographer and in his retirement, an avid amateur genealogist. Until his final few weeks, he was cared for by Marilyn at home in Edwards, where the family has lived since 1970. His brother David's problems with mental illness prompted Doug to support Ottawa's Salus Corporation (www.salus.on.ca, 2000 Scott Street, Ottawa, K1Z 6T2), to whom donations may be made in lieu of flowers.

Manhunt in Huron County
Ontario Provincial Police swarm a rural Huron County township seeking Jesse IMESON, 22, right, wanted in a Windsor killing.
By Kate DUBINSKI and April KEMICK, Sun Media, Sun., July 22, Const. Charlie RAE of the Huron Ontario Provincial Police stands watch over the perimeter of a cordoned area just south of Crediton, where police continued their hunt last night for a suspect in the slaying of a Windsor man. (Susan BRADNAM, Sun Media)
Police officers and dogs combed a rural area of Huron County yesterday as they searched for an "armed and dangerous" suspect in a Windsor homicide.
Dozens of Ontario Provincial Police officers and dogs scoured a five-kilometre-wide stretch of land in Stephen Township -- from Ausable Line to Parr Line north of Mount Carmel Drive -- in search of Jesse Norman IMESON, 22.
IMESON is wanted by police in connection with the slaying of Carlos RIVERA, 26, of Lasalle.
The search for IMESON -- which earlier had police scouring Grand Bend, after investigators found the slain man's car there -- began when RIVERA's Friends reported him missing to Windsor police on Wednesday.
He was last seen at 6 a.m. that day.
Investigators tracing RIVERA's movements went to the Tap, a gay strip club in Windsor where he tended bar. RIVERA didn't show up for his Wednesday night shift, which wasn't like him, Friends said.
RIVERA was last seen in his silver two-door Honda Civic, which was being driven by IMESON, police said.
Police went to IMESON's Erie Street apartment in Windsor Thursday night and found RIVERA's "decomposing" body, said Windsor police Staff Sgt. William DONNELLY.
Police then found RIVERA's car in Grand Bend early Friday.
There, investigators obtained video of IMESON and another man at Gables, a Main Street bar.
The surveillance images were taken sometime between Wednesday and Friday, police said.
Police fear the man in the video with IMESON might be in danger, and searched the town for clues to their whereabouts.
"We've been doing door-to-door searches, going to businesses and asking them if they recognize anyone," Lambton Ontario Provincial Police Const. Todd MONAGHAN said yesterday.
"We're hoping the public knows something, or perhaps Mr. IMESON can put an end to this and come speak to us."
The man with IMESON has collar-length hair and was wearing a dark ball cap and white shirt, police said.
IMESON is six-foot-one, 200 pounds with short, almost shaved brown hair, brown eyes and numerous tattoos on his arms.
Windsor police said IMESON is known to police.
Last night, an Ontario Provincial Police helicopter joined the manhunt for IMESON in Huron County.
As night fell, marked and unmarked cruisers -- along with armed officers -- lined a perimeter in Stephen Township that framed corn fields, wooded areas and the Ausable River.
Passing motorists were warned not to pick up hitchhikers, and area homeowners were told to keep vehicles and homes locked.
"I've got my doors locked and I'm staying inside, because you just don't know," said one woman, who didn't want her name used.
Wayne GLANVILLE, whose property borders the search area, said it's rare to see such a police presence in the quiet countryside.
"It makes me a little nervous," he said of the suspect on the loose.
The Stephen Township area is full of nooks and crannies where a suspect could hide, said Huron Ontario Provincial Police Const. Jeff WALRAVEN.
"There's so many different avenues -- trees, bushes, holes," he said.
But scouring for suspects is "something the Ontario Provincial Police excels at," he added.
WALRAVEN wouldn't comment as to how long police would remain on the perimeter.
RIVERA was a "nice guy" who always had a smile for everyone, said one Tap employee who didn't want to be named.
"It's really scary. I'm hoping the police can find who did this."
An autopsy on RIVERA was slated for yesterday in London. No results have been released.

Father, sons die in two separate crashes
By Geoff NIXON, Page A10
Members of an Ottawa Valley family are reeling from the loss of two adult brothers and their father in a pair of tragic automobile crashes late in the Labour Day weekend.
Ricky LANDRIAULT, 36, of the Township of Greater Madawaska, was found in his sport utility vehicle on Tuesday morning near Calabogie, Ontario
Police believe he was speeding at the time of his crash and that the wheels of his vehicle slipped off the pavement. When he tried to correct his path, he veered across the road and struck a large tree.
He died alone at the scene.
Renfrew Ontario Provincial Police Constable Janice SAWBRIDGE said yesterday Mr. LANDRIAULT had last been seen at the Lannin Funeral Home in nearby Smiths Falls.
He had been planning the funerals for his brother and father, who were killed in a crash in Montague Township earlier in the weekend.
Louis LANDRIAULT Jr., 40, and his father, Louis LANDRIAULT Sr., 68, died when the car they were travelling in - a Dodge Neon driven by Louis Sr. - crashed into a hydro pole late Sunday afternoon.
Police said they, too, were speeding and lost control of their vehicle.
Constable SAWBRIDGE said the LANDRIAULT family deaths were the latest in a string of preventable collisions that have plagued Ontario roadways this summer.
"It's been horrible," she said. "We've said it all summer: 'Buckle up, slow down, stop the aggressive driving.' "
Neither Ricky nor Louis Jr. were wearing seatbelts at the time of their deaths.
"Look at what this poor family now has to go through," Constable SAWBRIDGE said.
Perry SSAINTBIN, a family friend who had known the brothers and their father for five years, said yesterday he mourns most for those left behind - the 15-year-old and three-year-old sons of Louis Jr., who are going to grow up without their dad, their uncle and their grandfather.
"Both the kids are just hurting inside so bad, Mr. SSAINTBIN said yesterday, fighting back tears.
Constable Paige WHITING of Lanark County Ontario Provincial Police said yesterday that Louis Jr. and his father were trying to catch up to another vehicle. The other vehicle - driven by Sharon DONNELLY, 37, common-law wife of Louis Jr. - was so far ahead they could not even see it at the time of their crash.
The couple had just had a fight, Ms. DONNELLY said, adding she had wanted to have a temporary separation and Louis Jr. was upset. She then took a drive from the house they shared in Smiths Falls to let things cool off, and he and his father had followed.
Now she will never get to see him again.
"I didn't want to leave him," Ms. Donnelly said yesterday. "This was the man I was going to stand beside the day he died - when he was 80."
Although the two had only met last December, they had planned to get married in three years time.
"He was the love of my life, he was very generous," Ms. DONNELLY said of Louis Jr. "I waited 37 years to meet a man just like that. He was perfect in every way."
The two brothers and their father will have a joint memorial service at the same funeral home where Ricky helped to plan services for Louis Jr., and Louis Sr., only hours before his death.

As a member of Princess Margaret's Ontario Cancer Institute, she served on its Executive and Advisory Committees, and was President of its Hospital Services Committee.
Both Heather and Eric were avid golfers, skiers and travelers.
Heather will be fondly remembered by her old school "Belles" of Saint Mary's Academy, her many good Friends, her caregivers, Suzanne Harte, Samdaye Jaggesar, and Kensington's Gorden French and by the many people whose lives she touched.
A Memorial Service for Heather will be held, following the 9: 00 a.m. interment of her ashes at Mount Pleasant Cemetery (416-485-9129), on Saturday, November 3, at 10: 00 a.m. at Our Lady of Lourdes Roman Catholic Church, 420 Sherbourne Street, between Wellesley and Carlton Streets.

SHEPPARD steered United Way
"Bigger than life," he was at the helm of the agency for 16 years.
By Randy RICHMOND, Sun Media, Tues., October 9, 2007
A "bigger than life" man, who led London's United Way for 16 years, has died.
Barry SHEPPARD, 76, was remembered yesterday as a man's man with a gruff exterior and a soft spot for anyone who needed a hand up.
"He always reminded me of the Marlborough man," said Don DONNER, executive director of the Boys' and Girls' Club of London.
"He sat tall in the saddle. He was bigger than life. He could carry a shot of whiskey in one hand and smoke in the other.
"But he really was concerned about those less fortunate. He always cared about the little guy."
SHEPPARD retired as United Way president in 1989 after 16 years at the helm. He died Friday in London.
SHEPPARD's long tenure gave stability to an organization under fire from within and without, that had had 11 directors in 13 years and the sudden and mysterious resignation of his predecessor.
"He took the rudder in a firm hand and took the community forward," DONNER said.
SHEPPARD was his mentor and friend, DONNER said.
Every meeting between the two began first with talk of wives and children, DONNER remembered.
"He certainly cared first and foremost for his family."
SHEPPARD was born during the Depression and his parents' struggles must have made an impression on him, DONNER said.
"He would do anything for someone who tried to improve their life."
Yet, he never pulled punches, either.
"You always knew where you stood with Barry," DONNER said.
"You would always know he was around by his big booming voice. You could hear him all over the United Way."
SHEPPARD was raised in Ottawa and attended Queen's University and the St. Patrick's school of social work at Carleton University.
An associate professor of social work at the University of Waterloo, he came to London in 1974 when asked to apply for the United Way job.
In retirement he loved to garden and keep up to date on progress in the city's community agencies.
SHEPPARD had been sick for awhile, DONNER said.
"I'll miss him. He was a good fellow."
SHEPPARD is survived by his wife, Lorraine, and children Ann and Brian.
A memorial service is to be held at 11 a.m. Thursday at Westview Funeral Chapel, 709 Wonderland Rd. N., with visitation an hour beforehand.

FURBER, Jean Alice (née ROLLINGS)
It is with great sadness that the family of Jean Alice FURBER announce her passing on May 29th, 2007, in her 84th year, after her courageous battle with stroke/leukemia. Jean passed peacefully away at the Village of Taunton Mills Nursing Home, Whitby, Ontario, the way she lived, with grace and dignity, in the presence of her family. Beloved and cherished wife of Roy Francis FURBER, who passed away in 2000 after 54 years of marriage. Devoted and loving mother of daughter Susan (predeceased 1988) and sons Michael and wife Jacqui and Geoffrey and wife Liz. Beloved grandmother of Sarah (Andrew), Ben, Cody (Tami), Tom, Aimee, Neil and Jane. Proud great-grandmother of Trenton and Dylan. Faithful sister to brother John ROLLINGS and wife Anne and sister-in-law Mavis and family. Left also to mourn are her nieces and nephews, Tim, Judy and Peter. Also mourning, are Rosemary, Maggie, Harry and Margaret, Pauline and Hugh, Eiry, Isobel and John, Cynthia and Ian, Nagu and Suseela, Norm and Linda, whose Friendship brought lifelong companionship and happiness to Jean. Waiting for her in heaven with her beloved Roy and daughter Susan are grand_son Nick and nephew Chris and parents Tim and Ruby ROLLINGS and Charlie, a wonderful canine friend with whom she shared a special relationship. Born in Westcliff on Sea, England, Jean received her training as a nurse at Peace Memorial Hospital in Watford. She worked at Bushey Health Hospital from 1942-1944. With her marriage to Roy came new chapters and adventures in a full and rewarding life, raising children, setting up homes in England, Egypt and South Africa, becoming known as the 'Pine Lady' in her 50's restoring and selling Welsh furniture, before moving to Canada in 1989, living near her son Michael and family. Despite a seemingly fragile appearance, particularly in later years, Jean possessed an indomitable spirit and an extraordinary strength and resolve, which enabled her, time and time again, to bounce back from a steady progression of serious conditions and illnesses. The core of her being was wrapped in the warm embrace of family. Jean radiated a quiet, dignified, old-fashioned grace and style. Her silent strength was evident to her final breath. God speed, Jean! Our family would like to thank Jeff DONOVAN, Doctor REID and the wonderful staff at Taunton Mills Nursing Home whose dedication and professionalism showed kindness, compassion and understanding each day. Jean's wishes are to be reunited with her beloved. A memorial celebration of her life will be held in England. In lieu of flowers, donations in Jean's memory may be made to the Canadian Heart and Stroke Foundation. Messages of condolence may be sent to mfurber@total.net

DONOVAN, Daniel James " Bud"
Daniel James DONOVAN, beloved father, grandfather and great-grandfather died peacefully on the morning of Wednesday, May 30th, 2007 in Toronto. He was 92. Daniel was born on June 8, 1914 in Winnipeg, Manitoba. Affectionately called 'Bud' by his Friends and family, he followed a strict golfer's diet; he lived on greens as much as possible. Already a natural at the age of 9, he quickly became an accomplished amateur golfer as a teenager and burst into prominence in the early 1930s. Having won the Manitoba Junior title in 1929 and the Manitoba Open in 1933, he was one of eight Canadian amateur golfers sent by the Royal Canadian Golf Association on a Goodwill Tour of Britain in 1935. He was the only one to reach the fifth round of the British Amateur Championship. He made quite an impression with his fine swing and long distance hitting. The press called him 'the last of the gallant Canadians.' The most outstanding performance of his golf career came later in 1935. In the first General Brock Open Championship - a tournament open to amateurs and professionals - he was runnerup to American professional, Tony Manero, beating every other U.S. and Canadian professional player. He was also the first Canadian to receive a golf scholarship to a U.S. university (University of Notre Dame in Indiana). During the Second World War, as a naval officer, he met his wife Annette, one of Air Canada's first stewardesses, at a dance at the Royal York Hotel in Toronto. By the end of the war, Bud DONOVAN had given up serious competitive golf and moved east, to work in the insurance business. Always quick to tell an entertaining story, he excelled in his lifelong career in sales. He was a member of Scarboro Golf and Country Club and gave back his enjoyment and passion for golf by working as a publicity officer for the Ontario Golf Association. He was also a colour commentator for major Canadian golf events on CFRB radio in Toronto and for Canadian Broadcasting Corporation radio and television for 15 years. Bud is survived by his three daughters Anne SCHWALM (Andrew SCHWALM,) Louise DONOVAN (Willi VOGL,) and Nora DONOVAN- WARD (Julian WARD) four grandchildren, Natalie PETTI (Tom PETTI,) Doctor Stephanie JACOBS (Dr. Larry JACOBS), Kimberley McKEOWN, and Erin McKEOWN and four great-grandchildren, Donovan, Paige, Elle and Lawrence JACOBS. Bud joins his loving wife Annette, who passed away in 1997. His ways were gentle and his sense of humour was understated. Bud had an ideal golfing temperament, a quiet and unassuming manner, and an infectious smile. His was a life of many great moments both on and off the course. A private mass and celebration of his life was held on June 2, 2007. His family would like to thank his long time physician, Jocelyn CHARLES, and all of the staff at Sunnybrook Health Sciences Centre and Veterans' Residence for their exemplary care and support. Donations to Sunnybrook Health Sciences Centre, Geriatric Research or Schulich Heart Centre gratefully accepted in his memory.

DONOVAN, Richard Bertram, C.S.B.
Died at Scarborough General Hospital July 11, 2007. Richard was born on March 26, 1923 in Rochester, New York, the son of Raymond and Lillian (BERTRAM) DONOVAN. He entered Aquinas Institute, Rochester, New York the year the Basilian Fathers took charge of the school in September 1937. Upon graduating from high school, Richard entered St. Basil's Novitiate in Toronto and made his profession of vows August 15, 1942. Father Donovan then pursued his B.A. degree at Saint Michael's College, Toronto followed by four years of theological studies. He was ordained to the priesthood by James Cardinal McGUIGAN, Archbishop of Toronto, in 1950 and that same year completed an M.A. degree in French at the University of Toronto. Graduate studies followed at Yale University culminating in a Ph.D. degree in French Language and Literature. While at Yale he was awarded a Fulbright Scholarship for study and research in France and Spain. In 1956 Father Donovan was appointed to the University of Saint Michael's College, Toronto, where he taught French for thirty years. He was department head from 1962 to 1975 and Registrar from 1977 to 1989. During that time also, like his confreres at the College, he helped with parish ministry on weekends and offered Mass frequently during the week at Loretto College and Saint_Joseph's College. From 1990 to 2001 Fr. Donovan assisted in the work of the Saint Michael's College Alumni Office, serving as Records Officer. From 1988 to 1994 he had the pleasure of serving as superior during the summers at Strawberry Island, a summer retreat for the Basilians in beautiful Lake Simcoe. He managed to do a bit of fishing there, which was to provide tasty fish for the hungry crowds on the Island. Many of his students and professors have kept in touch with him after his retirement from teaching. He was admired as a devoted teacher and scholar, who inspired his students with a love for languages. Father Donovan celebrated the 50th anniversary of his ordination to the priesthood on June 25 in the Jubilee year 2000 at the Cardinal Flahiff Basilian Centre chapel with six fellow jubilarians. He retired to Anglin House, Cardinal Flahiff Basilian Centre in 2006. Father Donovan is survived by two brothers James and William, and several nieces and nephews.
