Neighbours mourn 'super-friendly guy'
While out delivering Christmas cards, Hunter BROWN, 74, was killed in apparent random attack, leaving his Friends and family in shock
By Caroline ALPHONSO, Page A3
Kitchener, Ontario -- Hunter BROWN, 74, set out on a cold Saturday afternoon, all bundled up, on what had become his annual Christmas ritual of hand-delivering cards to his neighbours. Recipients would often discover a picture of his three grandchildren tucked inside their cards.
The affluent neighbourhood in Kitchener has a mix of young families and elderly couples who have lived there for decades. Christmas decorations were strung along front porches and spilled onto the front yards.
This year, however, Mr. BROWN didn't get very far in his Christmas-card delivery. He had just started to make his first drop-off when a man struck him with an "edged weapon" and left him to die in the next-door neighbour's driveway, police say. A pile of undelivered cards was found on the ground next to him. Doctors pronounced Mr. BROWN dead in hospital.
Police say the attack was unprovoked and are looking for a man in his 20s who fled the quiet neighbourhood on foot wearing a long black trench coat and a black tuque with red lines.
"It's a difficult case," said Staff Sergeant Adrian DARMON of the Waterloo Regional Police. "This is quite a close community."
Yellow tape surrounded the BROWN home and neighbouring houses yesterday as police scoured the area for clues.
Mr. BROWN and his wife, Beverley, lived in their two-storey home for more than 30 years. A Christmas tree was lit up in the front window last night. The killing of Mr. BROWN, a father of two, has shocked family and neighbours.
Mr. BROWN, a retired regional manager for Bell, was described as a man who loved his grandchildren, and rarely missed a hockey or football practice, or a musical recital. He spent his summers at the family cottage in Muskoka, and had often invited neighbours to vacation there.
He and his wife would have celebrated their 50th anniversary in March. The couple had just started taking lessons in ballroom dancing.
"Mom and Dad did everything together," Mr. BROWN's son, Mike, said yesterday. "He was elderly but in good health. We never expected Hunter BROWN to die this way. He was a nice man."
His sister, Sandra, added: "He was a gentle man. He just had so much left."
Neighbour Lois HOGG remembers Mr. BROWN singing Christmas carols at her home on December 8 when she and her husband invited the neighbourhood over for a holiday celebration.
"It was a happy experience and we were so glad they were here," Ms. HOGG said.
Matthew ENGELMANN, 24, who lives next door to the BROWNs, said his kitchen counter was filled yesterday with food dropped off by neighbours for the victim's family. Mr. ENGELMANN saw Mr. BROWN as a grandfather. He and his family would spend a few days at the BROWN cottage almost every summer.
"He was just a super-friendly guy. You couldn't leave your house and have Hunter see you and not say 'hello' or 'hi,' " he said.
The ENGELMANN family has known Mr. BROWN and his wife for 27 years. Mr. ENGELMANN's father, Dieter, said he was still in disbelief over what happened. Neighbours came out when they saw police cruisers and an ambulance.
"It's such a sad situation. Nothing warrants this. Nothing at all," he said. "This guy wouldn't hurt a fly."
Police said yesterday autopsy results weren't complete as yet, but they believe a weapon with some of kind of sharp edge was used in the attack.
Neighbours say it was unlikely that the attack was personally motivated.
Mark MEDENSKY, who took care of the BROWN home when the family went on vacation, said many on the street are looking for answers.
"He was sweet, quiet. He always had something nice to say about you. Everyone is just in shock. I'm angry about what happened."

War vet TOOGOOD always on the move
By Amanda ROBINSON, SUN MEDIA, Sun., August 19, 2007
William TOOGOOD was always on the move.
After lying about his age to enlist at 15, he was a motorcycle messenger during the Second World War, zipping around some of the bloodiest areas of Europe where Canadians fought.
In civilian life, the Saint Thomas man had at least half a dozen jobs, most spent behind a wheel.
He delivered milk and bread in an era when those goods were delivered to customers' homes.
He drove a taxi, worked on the railroad and was a travelling salesperson for such things as vacuums and industrial supplies.
About 1980, at 56, he revved up a new career selling cars, a tough time in the industry as fuel-stingy Japanese imports muscled into a North American market dominated by gas guzzlers.
"He did well -- a lot of people liked him," said his eldest son, Norman TOOGOOD of Saint Thomas.
He said his father prospered selling vehicles for Ford dealers, Fearn and Talbot, in Saint Thomas. "He was a pretty good-looking guy. He dressed well, and a lot of guys thought he was a straight shooter," his son said.
TOOGOOD, who had battled Alzheimer's for years, died of emphysema August 10 at London's Parkwood Hospital. He was 83.
Born in Saint Thomas in 1924, TOOGOOD was the son of a First World War veteran badly injured in the fighting, making it difficult for him to work.
The family, said Norman TOOGOOD, was "pretty destitute."
Enlisting in 1939 was probably his father's response to the grim economic times the Depression had brought, his son said.
"When he was young, he just wanted to earn money."
TOOGOOD joined the Elgin Regiment as a reservist. He was deployed the next year as a regular soldier, serving until 1946.
He rejoined the military in the Cold War, in 1954, served nearly 20 years and retired a sergeant.
His most harrowing experiences came during the Second World War.
"He never wanted to talk about it," his son said. "It came out later in the years that he rode a motorcycle, but he never talked about firing a gun."
TOOGOOD served in Italy, France, Belgium, the Netherlands and Germany.
Messengers were often targets for snipers, the documents they carried valuable to enemies.
"In some cases, he was right on the front lines in enemy fire" taking messages from post to post, his son said. "He said one time in Sicily he was in an abandoned farmhouse that got shelled. I think there it was probably pretty scary."
TOOGOOD returned to Europe for the 50th-anniversary celebrations of D-Day. At home, he took part in many Remembrance Day ceremonies, sometimes serving as parade marshal in Saint Thomas.
Predeceased by his wife June, TOOGOOD is survived by three children, grandchildren, great-grandchildren and four siblings.
"I'm very proud of the contributions that he made," said TOOGOOD's grand_son, Cory WHITEHEAD, 24. "I'm just going to miss spending time with him… he was really special to me."
