Man dies during late-night swim
Group jumps fence at motel
By Scott DUNN, Wednesday, August 08, 2007
A 24-year-old Hamilton man died in a closed swimming pool early Saturday morning after jumping a fence, police confirmed Tuesday.
Bruce Peninsula Ontario Provincial Police said Bruno LARANJEIRO died after getting into trouble in the pool at the Sauble Lodge Motel on Second Avenue North in Sauble Beach. Police were called at 2 a.m. to investigate a report that someone may have drowned.
"Several persons jumped the fence, locked fence, and were in the pool," Const. Dave MEYER said in an interview Tuesday. "The victim doesn't know how to swim apparently, according to the girlfriend, and she was screaming for help."
People came to his aid and performed cardiopulmonary resuscitation but LARANJEIRO died, MEYER said.
A post-mortem exam was done in Owen Sound Sunday.
Police don't suspect foul play.
Asked how LARANGEIRO ended up in the pool, MEYER said "He went swimming… it was a situation he didn't know how to swim. Alcohol was involved."
LARANJEIRO had been drinking at the motel's nightclub, MEYER said.
MEYER referred questions about the cause of death to the coroner's office. Doctor Jack STANBOROUGH said Tuesday it will take more time before a death by drowning can be confirmed because it is arrived at through a process of eliminating other possible causes.
He called it an "apparent drowning."
Jaswinder GREWAL owns the Sauble Lodge Motel. She said in an interview Tuesday she closed the bar at 12: 45 a.m. Saturday and started cleaning for about 20 minutes. She went upstairs to bed and heard someone screaming about 25 minutes later.
She looked out the window and saw six or seven people in the pool.
Initially she was angry that people had jumped the fence to swim and she came down and told them to leave.
Then she grew nervous when she saw three or four people trying to pull the naked victim out of the pool.
Next she phoned 911 but was told an ambulance was already on the way. She returned to the victim and resuscitation efforts were underway. She picked up the man's cold hand.
"I couldn't sleep whole night," GREWAL said.
A pair of underwear was found in the pool later.
Jose MARTINS said in an interview LARANJEIRO and his girlfriend stayed with him and four others in Room 48. MARTINS was Friends with LARANJEIRO and occasionally they attended the same parties.
MARTINS said his friend had been drinking that night but he didn't see him enter the pool because he stayed in the bar. He said his friend was a happy, sociable man. He worked in construction, with asphalt and cement.
He understands after LARANJEIRO's funeral Thursday he will be taken to Portugal for burial.

Gentle priest a devoted Maple Leafs fan
By Claire NEARY, Sun Media, Sun., December 30, 2007
Rev. Clarence FITZGERALD, known and loved by many as "Father Fitz," was a quiet, gentle priest, dedicated to his profession, his parishioners -- and the Toronto Maple Leafs.
Though he could make it to Toronto for only the occasional Leafs game, FITZGERALD was also a devoted Windsor Spitfires fan and season ticket holder.
For nearly 50 years, he touched the lives of many people across the Roman Catholic Diocese of London in more than a dozen parishes.
FITZGERALD died of cancer, surrounded by his family in Windsor, on December 5, at age 74.
Born in Windsor, FITZGERALD -- known to his family as Father Clare -- was the youngest of five children.
"He was a wonderful brother. My baby brother," said his eldest sister, Margaret MEYER of Brampton.
FITZGERALD always knew he wanted to be a priest and attended Saint Peter's Seminary in London.
He played and enjoyed almost all sports, especially basketball, golf and, of course, hockey.
FITZGERALD was ordained in 1959 and worked in parishes in Delhi, London, Chatham, Woodstock, Saint Marys and Windsor.
He was also the chaplain at Victoria Hospital in London early in his career.
FITZGERALD retired in 2003 but continued to perform weddings, funerals and baptisms as long as he was healthy.
"It was amazing at his funeral to see the number of people from all of the places he'd served," his friend Rev. John COSTELLO said.
"So many people talked about how he'd unknowingly touched their lives."
Above all, Friends said FITZGERALD was a great listener.
"He would never talk much about himself. It was always about the other person," said Mike RICKETTS, a longtime parishioner at St. Alphonsus in Windsor.
"And he always found time, or made time, for the people who needed him."
COSTELLO said many parishioners chose FITZGERALD for confession because he was a kind and gentle listener.
Although he was quiet and sensitive, FITZGERALD was the king of one-liners, his friend Rev. Chris QUINLAN remembered.
"And we always knew never to talk to him during the Leafs games and only to call him in between periods," QUINLAN said, laughing.
He described his friend as a "priest's priest" who loved spending time with his colleagues on the golf course.

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.

She was a loving step-mother to Kim and Gary BUTTEDAHL and proud grandmother to Caleb and Alisha GRUNERT. Her family wishes to join in expressing all their love and appreciation for the extraordinary person Paz was, and for the outstanding contributions she made to the world. Paz was born in Santiago, Chile, and created a vast network of Friends, colleagues and students throughout the world, garnered through a long and distinguished career. The breadth of her experience spanned work with universities, international development organizations and agencies, and the Canadian military. Whatever the setting, common threads ran through all of her work: a passion for fostering international and intercultural understanding; a focus on sustainable development; and a belief in the possibility of creating an equitable and socially just world. The academic portion of Paz's career involved teaching at several universities in Canada, the United States, and Latin America, including a faculty position at the University of British Columbia and most recently, at Royal Roads University. Her work at the universities was always characterized by a passionate commitment to her students, the injection of an international perspective and comparative education approach to her courses, and a desire to create international partnerships linking students and educators from the developing world with those in Canada. Paz was sought after as a researcher and educator specializing in international development issues, and was a consultant with many international agencies and organizations. These included the Canadian International Development Agency, The United Nations Education, Scientific and Cultural Organization, the U.S. Agency for International Development, and the Organization of American States. Paz also worked for almost a decade with the International Development Research Centre in Ottawa. As Deputy Director of the Fellowships and Awards Division, her focus was on the development of human resources and the strengthening of institutions in the developing world through the education and training of their researchers and project staff. Paz strongly believed in learning as a crucial component in the achievement of sustainable development. In the early 1990s, as international development issues became more and more intertwined with issues of security, Paz was invited to attend the National Defense College in Kingston, Ontario, where she also contributed as the academic advisor to the Commandant. A subsequent posting to the Centre for National Security Studies provided a base for her research linking issues of sustainable development to those of human security. Paz's vast storehouse of knowledge and experience found a home and became invested in the creation of the Master of Arts in Human Security and Peacebuilding program at Royal Roads University in Victoria, British Columbia. As founder and program head, Paz worked tirelessly to build the program and to ensure its sustainability and its relevance to the international development and security issues of today's world. The Master of Arts in Human Security and Peacebuilding program was to be Paz's final contribution in a lifetime of notable achievements. In spite of failing health during the past months, she found strength in providing ongoing leadership to the program and in planning for its future. Paz, with her indomitable spirit and her vision of a world that might be, has enriched and influenced the lives of hundreds of Friends and colleagues around the world. Her loss will be deeply mourned. A celebration of her life will be held on at 1 p.m. on October 21 at Royal Roads University, 2nd Floor Grant Building, 2005 Sooke Rd. Victoria, British Columbia.
