His spirit lives on and always will. Times he laughed and gave advice or just listened echo in the memories of those he touched and in being so remembered his legacy will live on. Death cannot diminish the important ways our (father, grandfather, brother) touched our lives; grief cannot take away the good times we shared sorrow will fade in time but memories will remain forever. When we hear the thunder in the sky we will know it is the thunder of hooves beating the ground with one more race being won.

GALBRAITH, Clarretta " Tom"
Clarretta 101, died customary Harmony on Friday, 'Tom' GALBRAITH, quietly, and with her grace and dignity, at Homes in Red Deer November 23. The youngest of three sisters, Clarretta was born in Lion's Head, Ontario, on May 2, 1906, and raised in Regina and Edmonton. She graduated from the Royal Alexandra Hospital as a Registered Nurse in 1929, working first as a public health nurse with the Travelling Clinic in Northern Alberta and later at the Olds Agricultural College. She moved to the Red Deer Health Unit in 1933 before winning a scholarship to the University of Toronto where she received a Diploma in Public Health in 1935. Returning to the Red Deer Health Unit, she married Philip GALBRAITH, the Publisher of the Red Deer Advocate, in 1936 and lived the rest of her wonderfully full and happy life in Red Deer. She and Philip were two peas in a pod, blessed with a wide circle of Friends in Canada and overseas. They entertained with panache and travelled widely to Europe, the U.S., Asia and the Middle East. On her travels she wrote a column for the Advocate, as did her husband, who was amused that she got more fan mail than he did. She continued to travel after his death in 1970. Known for her charm, taste and warmth, she was a devoted wife, mother and grandmother, a gracious hostess and a keen observer with a great sense of humour. For six decades she welcomed a constant stream of visitors and family to her home. She is survived by her daughter Mary LAUGHREN (Grant) of Calgary and son Michael GALBRAITH (María INÉS) of Singapore; and grandchildren Jessica LAUGHREN (François TREMBLAY) of Sugarland, Texas, Olivia LAUGHREN of Edmonton, Veronica GALBRAITH of Hong Kong, and Andrew GALBRAITH of Shanghai.

Shooting suspect found slain hours later
By Matt HARTLEY, Page A12
A man found shot to death in an underground parking garage in the north end of Scarborough Friday evening was responsible for the brazen daylight shooting death of another man just seven hours earlier, according to Toronto police.
It all started at 1: 22 p.m. Friday when 19-year-old Ryan HYDE was ambushed outside a plaza at the corner of Birchmount Road and Bonis Avenue in Scarborough.
Mr. HYDE was waiting inside a black four-door sedan for a friend who had gone into a restaurant to buy some pizza when someone opened the rear door of the car and started shooting.
He was shot several times and died of a wound to the abdomen a short time later in hospital.
Police say the gunman was 25-year-old Kennado WALKER of Ajax - also known as Weezy or Squeeze - who fled the scene with another man.
The pair apparently took off north across Bonis Avenue and disappeared into a townhouse complex.
At 8: 13 p.m., police were called to an underground parking garage at 5600 Sheppard Ave. East - just five kilometres away - where Mr. WALKER's body was discovered, riddled with bullets.
Police said he died as a result of a gunshot wound to the head.
"By all accounts it appears that Mr. WALKER was targeted for this shooting and executed in the garage," Toronto police Detective Stacy GALLANT said. "What we have are two individuals who were leading criminal high-risk lifestyles. They had an apparent dispute that led to both of them being killed on Friday."
Officers said both men were known to police and had a history of involvement with drugs and guns. However, police still have not given a motive for either killing. Det. GALLANT said neither man had an apparent gang affiliation, but that they did know one another.
"We'd like to find out what's happened and why Mr. WALKER would feel compelled to go and kill another man over what's gone on in the past," Det. GALLANT said.
At least nine homicide officers as well as the gun and gang task force are investigating the slayings.
Police have also arrested a 21-year-old man, Adrian McGOWAN, who was found attending to Mr. HYDE at the scene of the first shooting.
He now faces weapons charges.

WRIGHT, Don
Born in Alliston, May 24, 1924, Don WRIGHT was the first child of Sydney and Beatrice WRIGHT (née GALLAUGHER.) At the age of 11 his mother died leaving five children. Don initially lived with his grandparents then moved to Edgar to live with his aunt and uncle, Hilda and Gordon BIDWELL. While living on the farm he discovered he had an aptitude for mechanics. He left the farm in 1939 at the age of 15 to live in Collingwood with his father and stepmother. At the same time Don's brother Harold moved from Collingwood to the Bidwell farm. Don received an early license to drive and started as an apprentice mechanic at Scheffer Motors. He then moved to Kelly Motors to continue his apprenticeship until he joined the Royal Canadian Air Force in 1942. He served as an aero engine mechanic in Quebec for the duration. After the war he returned to Collingwood and Kelly Motors. He successfully wrote the apprenticeship examinations and became a licensed mechanic September 2, 1946. Don's good friend, Andy PLATER, encouraged a relationship between his sister Jean and Don. The two fell in love and were married July 28, 1949. They moved into 159 Fourth Street West which is the family home to this day. Don and Jean decided to start their own business and on Halloween night, 1952 they opened a White Rose service station on Hurontario which is now The Candy Factory building. Due to Don's hard work the service station soon prospered and he expanded into car sales, becoming an American Motors dealer. In March 1953 Jean and Don had their first daughter, Nancy. In September 1955 their second daughter, Donna was born and in July 1959 their third daughter, Susan was born. Don was very proud of his daughters; he named his boat 'The Three Daughters'. The following decades were filled with work, family and his antique car collection. During a trip to England in 1988 Don experienced some heart difficulties and in 1989 he suffered a heart attack. After a period of recovery he returned to his very active life but at his doctor's suggestion, he decided to retire. The family business was taken over by Nancy and her husband, Glenn GOURLIE. After Retirement he continued to use his talents by creating beautiful woodwork and stained glass. He also continued to enjoy his antique cars and was regularly seen driving the mayor in Collingwood parades as well as many wedding celebrations. He was active on the First Baptist Church Property Board and enjoyed using his skills to repair the church whenever possible. During this time he also had the opportunity to love and enjoy his five grandchildren. He continued to enjoy an active life until his sudden passing December 21, 2006. Don's family would like to thank the medical staff, funeral home and all the many Friends and relatives who have shown their appreciation for Don and support for his family.

O'NEIL, Doctor Murray Roy
On Saturday afternoon, June 30th, 2007, Essex County lost one of its great sons.
Dr. Murray Roy O'NEIL passed away suddenly and tragically doing what he loved most, piloting his beloved Piper J-3 Cub near Colchester, Ontario.
Born on May 12, 1927, and raised in Paquette Corners on the family farm, Murray's love of the land never left him.
In the fall of 1945, he left home for London, Ontario, where he studied pre- medicine and then medicine at the University of Western Ontario, graduating in 1951. He returned home to practice family medicine in the town of Essex. While he went on to specialize in Allergy and Immunology and later build the largest private Allergy and Respirology partnership of its kind in Ontario, the principles of practicing good old-fashioned medicine -- of listening, caring, being there for his patients at anytime of the day and seeing them through no matter what -- always set his standard of care. Doctor O'NEIL was honoured by the medical community as President of the Michigan Allergy Society (1981-1982), President of the Essex County Medical Society (1985-1986) and in 1999 was honoured with a Life Membership by the Ontario Medical Association. He was a brilliant diagnostician and pioneered the areas of respirology and sleep medicine in Windsor, however he will surely be most fondly remembered as a simple and principled man with a genuine love for his patients, who would arrive, doctor's bag in hand, whenever needed.
In 1961 Doctor O'NEIL embarked on his second career, founding Highline Produce. After 45 years of strength and growth, Highline today is one of the largest mushroom growing facilities in Canada, employing close to 800 people at its Leamington, Ontario, Wellington, Ontario and Montreal, Québec locations. Murray's countless feats of engineering and his personally devised innovations made Highline one of the most advanced and modern facilities in North America. He was known internationally as a father of the industry, and as in his first career, held many positions of leadership, including Co-Chairing the first North American Mushroom Conference (1979) with his dear friend, Charles CIARROCCHI, serving as President of the Canadian Mushroom Growers' Association (1976-1978), as a member of the U.S. Mushroom Council (2003-2005) and being honoured as a Life Member of the Canadian Mushroom Growers' Association in 2002 for his then 41 years of service.
His final passion, the marvel of flight, is one which in his own words was "something that's been a part of me for as long as I can remember," beginning when he was given the gift of a toy airplane at five years of age, and stayed with him throughout his entire life. He first soloed a Tiger Moth in the summer of 1950 while stationed at Summerside, Prince Edward Island. His quest for knowledge, his great curiosity, and his love for the skies culminated in a commercial license by 1966.
He owned 18 different private aircraft during an aviation career that spanned over five decades and accumulated over 8,500 hours. Great moments of glory included competing in the Great London, England to Victoria, British Columbia Air Race in 1971 as part of a two-man crew in his Piper Twin Comanche (for which he received a Windsor Flying Club Special Award), and flying his "hottest" plane, a Mitsubishi MU-2 twin engine turbo prop on Highline business throughout the 1990s.
He lovingly built a single-seater, open-cockpit Volksplane, the "Cutie" which will forever hang suspended at the Windsor Airport as part of a Heritage Collection. He also restored a beautiful 1946 Piper J-3 Cub, which he taught his children to fly and which lived at his home until this Saturday's fateful accident.
For all of his many accomplishments, Murray O'NEIL will be remembered as a simple man from Essex County who loved his family and cherished close Friends, who served his fellow man and touched so many lives, and who lived life to its fullest with an abundance of optimism and a deep gratitude for all his life's blessings.
He is predeceased by his wife Judith (FITCH) O'NEIL, his son, Andrew O'NEIL, and his sister, Marjorie (O'NEIL) WRIGHT. He is survived by his brother, Ejay O'NEIL and family, heartbroken children Debra and John GALLAUGHER, David O'NEIL, and Elizabeth O'NEIL, grandchildren Brandon GALLAUGHER and Regan, Lisa, Samantha and Mallory O'NEIL, mother-in-law Dorothy FITCH, and numerous nieces and nephews.
A visitation will be held on Thursday, July 5th, 2007, at the Walter Kelly Funeral Home (1969 Wyandotte Street East, Windsor), from 2-4 and 7-9 p.m. A third visitation will be held the following morning, Friday, July 6th, at Lakeshore St. Andrew's Church (231 Amy Croft Drive, Tecumseh), from 11-12 p.m., with a funeral service at Lakeshore St. Andrew's following at 12: 30 p.m.
The family has requested a private service and interment at St. Stephen's Anglican Church, Oldcastle, following which Friends and family are invited to celebrate Murray's life at a memorial celebration at Hangar 401, Windsor Airport, from 4-6 p.m. on Friday, July 6th.
In lieu of flowers, the family kindly requests that you make a donation to your charity of choice or to Ability Online, an online support network for children and young adults with disabilities and illnesses (www.abilityonline.org), which Murray believed in and supported.

GALPIN, Doctor Richard Robertson
Was born in Vancouver, British Columbia, on May 29, 1915, first child of his parents Alfred and Louise GALPIN. His father worked as an official with Canadian Customs and Immigration, his mother maintained their home. Richard was the third generation of the family born in Vancouver. He was joined in a few years by his beloved sister Esther Louise (who later married C.G. (Bud) KILLAM. They are survived by their children, son Richard (Veronica), daughter Nancy SINCLAIR (Richard,) and son Michael (Lynette) all of Vancouver). He grew up in Vancouver, attending public schools. He graduated from Kitsalino High School, and attended the University of British Columbia, where he received his Bachelor's degree. When he spoke about this time in his life, he remembered the Friendships he had, and the love of his family. During this time he held many part time jobs that shaped his outlook on life, including working as a lumberjack, streetcar motorman, and on the railroad. As a young man, he enjoyed sailing, music and the outdoors, and played rugby for the Merelomas. His love of music has always been central to his life, and started with piano lessons as a boy. While attending University of British Columbia, he was introduced to a friend of his sister's, Helen STEVENSON, who he courted and married. After graduating from University of British Columbia, he attended Medical School at McGill University, and received his doctorate in 1943. After graduation, he was immediately assigned to service aboard the HMCS Waterford. He served through the remainder of World War 2 in the Canadian Navy and saw combat throughout the Atlantic Theater as a ship's surgeon. His decorations include: The Battle of Atlantic Medal, Normandy Star, Defense of Britain Medal, and the Victory Medal. He continued to have an affiliation with the Canadian Navy until his death, rising to the rank of Rear-Admiral (Reserves). He relished this connection to the navy throughout his life. He was particularly proud of his Honorary United states Naval Insignia, including Surface command, and Naval Aviator (U.S.S. Nimitz). He was also an honorary member of the Detroit Navy League. In 1949 Richard emigrated to the United States to begin his Pediatric training at Henry Ford Hospital in Detroit. He completed this and became Board Certified and a Fellow of the American Academy of Pediatrics. He joined Doctor Lloyd Kemp in his office at the corner of Brown and Southfield, and joined the staff at Beaumont Hospital when it was a single building lying on the outskirts of the city. He went on to practice pediatrics in the same location for over thirty years, caring for multiple generations from the same families. During his clinical practice he became especially interested in early childhood development. With his belief in the importance of nurturing this special period of a child's development and through the strength of his efforts, he founded the Neuro-Education Center at Beaumont Hospital. From early shoe-string budgets, he shepherded the center through it's early years, and maintained an interest in 'the Center' for the rest of his life. It has now become the Center for Human Development at Beaumont Hospital. He and Helen had four children Kenneth, Peter, Lindley and Sheila. The children were raised in Birmingham. During this time Richard and Helen were involved in many community affairs from the Birmingham Jazz Festival, the Birmingham Kite Festival to the origins of the Birmingham Bloomfield Art Center, and were members of Christchurch Cranbrook. During this time he was an avid competitive sailor, a Member of Crescent Sail Yacht club. He passed on his love of music and sailing to his children. Helen and Richard divorced in 1970. In 1973 he was introduced to Maxine RICH by mutual Friends. They courted for two years and went on to be married in 1975. The marriage lasted until their deaths. As a couple they were inseparable. As well as traveling, they loved to entertain at Maxine's house in Orchard lake, were avid ballroom dancers and enjoyed boating on Cass Lake. Richard is survived by his first wife Helen GALPIN of Comox, British Columbia and son Peter (Nina) and their twin children Akira and Mikiko, daughter Lindley (Carey) and her children Karen and Amy, Father-in-law to Mary BODO (Kenneth,) daughter Sheila MEREDITH and her children Thyra and Nedra, and their children Walter, Ella and Daniel.

While the world may seem a darker place without the light of his smile, his skill as a raconteur and his joy at the piano, his contribution to the world has been great, and we carry him with us always.

GALVIN, Jack Stacey
Retired, Jack Galvin Design. Artist, founding president of North York Masters Aquatic Club, past-president of Gwendolyn Park Tennis Club, painter, sculptor, Kiwi extraordinaire!
Peacefully, surrounded by his loving family and with his beautiful wife at his side, on Friday, August 31st, 2007 at Sunnybrook Health Sciences Centre, Toronto, in his 77th year. Beloved husband of Lyla for over 53 years. Loving and very devoted father/father-in-law to Douglas (Judie,) Russell (Rebecca POON) and Tracy (David HYNES.) Cherished and adoring 'Poppa' of Kristy, Kim, Sadie and Frances. Dear brother to Dennis of New Zealand, Brian of Australia and Pattie (Fred McMILLAN) of New Zealand. Lovingly remembered by his niece Vicki MEYER of New Zealand, as well as by many other extended family and so very many dear Friends. Jack was born in Wellington, New Zealand and raised in nearby Wanganui where he developed his love of swimming and all sports. Losing his mother at a young age, Jack learned to be self-sufficient and began his lifelong skill of self-education. Leaving New Zealand in 1952, Jack met his bride-to-be, Lyla, onboard ship enroute to travel Europe. Married in London, England in 1953, they stopped in Canada on the way back to New Zealand and stayed for good. After leading the design effort for the 'Indians of Canada' pavilion at Expo 67, Jack successfully ran his own design business for many years. In 1969 Jack designed and built his family home in an idyllic valley of the west Don River. Jack's love of life was expressed in his vibrant paintings, woodcarvings, furniture, and other creations, as well as in his penchant for costume parties, singsongs around the piano or campfire, card nights, doing the haka, and midnight tobogganing. Musically gifted, he could play most instruments he picked up. His enthusiasm, hospitality and good humour were legendary among his many Friends and he was always the first to volunteer, whether for a new adventure or to lend a helping hand. Jack was a lifelong good steward of the earth and a regular blood donor. After retirement, Jack and Lyla did not slow down. They traveled, continued tennis and competitive swimming, and swam regular mornings at the Frost pool. Jack took up downhill skiing at age 65 and spent many wonderful days flying down the slopes - finally getting a helmet at 74! Jack never lost the spark of youth or the twinkle in his eye. He lovingly cared for his beloved Lyla until his last day. Those who knew him, will remember him always. A memorial service to celebrate Jack's life will be held at the R.S. Kane Funeral Home (6150 Yonge Street, at Goulding, south of Steeles), on Saturday, September 29th, 2007 at 11 o'clock. Interment, York Cemetery. As an expression of sympathy, donations may be made to the Canadian Hemochromatosis Society (www.toomuchiron.ca) or a charity of your choice. Please consider donating blood in memory of Jack. Condolences www.rskane.ca R.S. Kane 416-221-1159
