Wasaga man stabbed, friend faces murder charge
Twenty-nine year old Roger HALVORSON was stabbed in the upper body before being found outside the Riverboat Resort Saturday, police say.
And a 23-year-old Wasaga Beach man accused of second-degree murder in connection with his death was set to appear in a Barrie courtroom Thursday.
Police responded to a 911 call Saturday morning made by Riverboat Resort manager Nick SINGH.
SINGH said he found HALVORSON laying in the parking lot of the motel located at 280 River Rd. E. at 8 a.m.
He said in an interview Tuesday, that at first he thought HALVORSON had passed out.
"He was transported to hospital and later passed away as a result of the injury," said Ontario Provincial Police Const. Mark Kinney.
According to SINGH, HALVORSON was staying temporarily at the Riverboat. He had been there only a few days and was renting by the week. The motel is known for having long-term tenants.
SINGH said HALVORSON and friend Noah COUTTS, also of Wasaga Beach, went out the night before and that they had been drinking. They returned sometime Saturday morning.
It was COUTTS, 23, who was later charged with second-degree murder.
SINGH said police cleared the scene Monday.
Ontario Provincial Police Criminal Investigation Branch Detective Inspector Dave QUIGLEY is leading the investigation into HALVORSON's death.
Police are not releasing many details about the crime or an autopsy conducted Sunday.
The same parking lot was the scene of the October 20, 2002 beating death of 20-year-old Rahim PREBTANI. Michael Gordon McCARROLL was found guilty of second-degree murder and is serving a life sentence for the death of PREBTANI.
His co-accused, James Luke SMITH, pleaded guilty to manslaughter and was sentenced to two years less a day.

McNEE, John Jay (March 01, 1963-December 03, 2007)
Jay died of cancer peacefully at home surrounded by the clan. Predeceased by his Grandad and Nanu McNee; mother-in-law Fay RYAN, and Grandad and Noni Davies, Jay leaves to remember him with deep love his Mom Doranne, Dad John, brothers Warren (Sabrina and children Danielle, Chloe and Oliver), Andrew (Karen), sister Darcie, father-in-law Jim RYAN (Sydney,) brother-in-law Kelly RYAN (Shelley, Caitlin, Justin and Kieran,) sister-in-law Shay PRESCOTT (Chris, Taylor and Spenser) and most especially his sons Connor and Declan and wife Shelagh. Jay grew up in Vancouver, spending many happy summers in the Gulf Islands and winters at Whistler with his family and Friends. Graduating from University Hill Secondary, Jay went on to pursue geochemistry at University of British Columbia, graduating with a Doctorate degree in 1997. During his often-joked about decade at University of British Columbia, Jay met and married Shelagh, became a Dad to Connor (16) and Declan (13) and made many deep Friendships with his lab and beer garden mates. While still writing his thesis, Jay began his professional career as an environmental consultant, later forming Lorax Environmental Services with partners David Flather, Ali Sahami, and Tom Pederson in 1996. The values Jay lived by were reflected in all his business relationships, and guided how he and his partners built the company. Jay had a passion for music, and looked forward to Friday jam sessions at Lorax, which were often a mix of jazz/blues riffs and debate on obscure scientific notions. Jay had a unique ability to create music compilations, and took to carrying his Ipod to all parties because he was so often requested to 'plug in and play'. Jay's approach to life, with its vagaries of opportunities and challenges, was to meet everything with positive acceptance. Jay cared deeply and passionately for his family and Friends and graced us with his humour, intellect, and thoughtful actions. He was a personal confidante to many and was known for his non-judgemental advice and counsel. His most important roles were as Dad to the boys and husband to Shelagh, and his preferred place to be was anywhere they were. A celebration of Jay's life will take place on Thursday, December 13th at the Terminal City Club from 3: 00-5:00 p.m. Please contact Lorax Environmental at 604-688-7173 to RSVP. Special acknowledgments and deep gratitude to Doctor Chris Hodgson who cared for Jay throughout the last 2½ years and palliative nurses Dyann Russell, Nancy Purchall and Mark Demers who ensured he was comfortable and supported. In lieu of flowers, the family would appreciate cards and letters of memories of Jay for his sons to keep, or donations in his name to the Vancouver Home Hospice Program, c/o Pacific Spirit Community Health Centre, 2110 West 43rd Avenue, Vancouver, British Columbia V6M 2E1.

STALKER, Robert
With courage and dignity, Bob STALKER died at the age of 74 on November 25, 2007 in the embrace of his wife and daughters. He will be greatly missed by his wife Jacqueline, his daughters Patti GRAY/GREY, Lynn PRESTON, and Bobbi ÉTHIER, their spouses, Bob BANKOSKY, Brian PRESTON, and Mike ÉTHIER, his grand_sons Jamie GRAY/GREY, Jeremy GRAY/GREY and Paul DESCHAMBAULT, his brothers Stan and George and members of his extended family. Robert STALKER was born in 1933 in Broughty Ferry and spent his childhood in Scotland. At the age of 14, he boarded the R.M.S. Aquitania with his family and headed for Pier 21 in Halifax. Like other immigrants to Canada after the second world war, Robert and his family had to spend their first few years on a farm. As soon as possible, however, his parents opened their own corner grocery store in Midland, Ontario and Bob himself escaped farming by joining the Air Force. At the age of 16, Bob met Jacqueline DAOUST at a high school graduation dance. They dated and married in Ottawa two years later after he was established in the Air Force and she had graduated from teacher training at Ottawa University. Their 55 years of marriage were filled with joy and happiness plus a fair bit of challenge and accommodation due to Air Force transfers which had the family living in eighteen different homes in Canada, the U.S., and Europe during Bob's thirty years in the service. Finally settling in Winnipeg by choice, Major STALKER retired from the Air Force in 1980, took Easter weekend off, and then began a second career with the Federal Government. His next and last retirement in 1984 enabled him to pursue new challenges. He continued running or walking five miles a day and also, through diligent hard work and persistence, became a vintner 'extraordinaire' which his family and Friends wholeheartedly appreciated. Retirement enjoyment increased with the 1993 purchase of a villa in Florida and his wife's retirement in 1995. The villa, named Palybo after their children Pat, Lynn, and Bobbi, was the centre of activity for all of the extended family and Friends. This sanctuary from cold Canadian winters became a very special place where everyone was welcome. Bob loved the ocean, the outdoors, classical music, walking along the beach, and being with his family, including visiting animal members. He was an avid reader and always had an Economist at hand and a history book close by. After retiring from the service, he also volunteered for political candidates that he believed in and worked for political parties he supported. Despite annual physical checkups throughout his life, prostate cancer was only diagnosed in December 2005. Bob STALKER will be greatly missed not only by his family but also by all of those who knew him. The family extends sincere thanks to Doctor Bennett at the Health Action Centre, the staff at Cancer Care Manitoba, and especially to each and every caring dedicated staff member of 3 East Palliative Care wing at Riverview Health Centre. Cremation has taken place and, according to his wishes, no service is being held at this time. As an expression of sympathy, donations may be made to Cancer Care Manitoba or to 3 East Palliative Care, Riverview Health Centre Foundation, Morley Avenue, Winnipeg R3L 2P4.

Joined his wife Helen (née PRESTON) and soul mate of 49 years on Wednesday, December 19, 2007. Born August 2, 1918 in Stratford, Ontario, he is survived by his second wife Mary MacLEOD, brother Bill, brother-in-law Hugh SHORTILL, children Joan BOXER (Richard,) Jeff (Patti,) Diana (Bill TAILOR/TAYLOR,) and Arn (Peggy.) Grandchildren Sarah, John, Todd, Marley, Preston and Katie will sorely miss their Poppa. Uncle Arn leaves giant shoes to fill in the lives of the many Stapleton/Preston relatives spread throughout the world. As corporate lawyer (having graduated from Osgoode Hall in 1950), Director of Personnel and chief labour contract negotiator for General Motors of Canada over a 29 year career, A.G. was the youngest director in the company's history. His was the voice of reason - the calm amidst many a storm during one of the most challenging eras in the United Auto Workers/General Motors contract evolution. Many said that Arn's unique ability to compartmentalize complicated concepts won over both union foes and management associates alike. He was able to maintain composure by utilizing a wonderful sense of humour centered around a quick wit and well placed one-liners. A man of few words, when he spoke, people listened. An English scholar (Words Are Important!), a history and travel buff, a Wagnerian connoisseur, a lover of opera and Shakespeare and one heck of a bridge and chess player, Arn was a 50+ year subscriber to the Stratford Festival (his second most favorite place after the family cottage at Inverhuron Beach). Always willing to give his ample talents to worthy causes, Arn served as Chairman and long time director of the Oshawa General Hospital, board member of both St. Andrew's Church in Oshawa and First-St. Andrew's United Church in London, and was a member in standing of the Law Society of Canada. In the words of his beloved Shakespeare -"to thine own self be true". A celebration of Arn's life will be held at First-St. Andrew's United Church, 350 Queens Avenue at Waterloo, London on Saturday, January 5 at 1: 00 p.m. Reception to follow. Cremation and Spring interment at Avondale Cemetery, Stratford.

STAPLETON, Arnold Grieve
Joined his wife Helen (née PRESTON) and soul mate of 49 years on Wednesday, December 19, 2007. Born August 2, 1918 in Stratford, Ontario, he is survived by his second wife Mary MacLEOD, brother Bill, brother-in-law Hugh SHORTILL, children Joan BOXER (Richard,) Jeff (Patti,) Diana (Bill TAILOR/TAYLOR,) and Arn (Peggy.) Grandchildren Sarah, John, Todd, Marley, Preston and Katie will sorely miss their Poppa. Uncle Arn leaves giant shoes to fill in the lives of the many Stapleton/Preston relatives spread throughout the world. As corporate lawyer (having graduated from Osgoode Hall in 1950), Director of Personnel and chief labour contract negotiator for General Motors of Canada over a 29 year career, A.G. was the youngest director in the company's history. His was the voice of reason - the calm amidst many a storm during one of the most challenging eras in the United Auto Workers/General Motors contract evolution. Many said that Arn's unique ability to compartmentalize complicated concepts won over both union foes and management associates alike. He was able to maintain composure by utilizing a wonderful sense of humour centered around a quick wit and well placed one-liners. A man of few words, when he spoke, people listened. An English scholar (Words Are Important!), a history and travel buff, a Wagnerian connoisseur, a lover of opera and Shakespeare and one heck of a bridge and chess player, Arn was a 50+ year subscriber to the Stratford Festival (his second most favorite place after the family cottage at Inverhuron Beach). Always willing to give his ample talents to worthy causes, Arn served as Chairman and long time director of the Oshawa General Hospital, board member of both St. Andrew's Church in Oshawa and First-St. Andrew's United Church in London, and was a member in standing of the Law Society of Canada. In the words of his beloved Shakespeare -"to thine own self be true". A celebration of Arn's life will be held at First-St. Andrew's United Church, 350 Queens Avenue at Waterloo, London on Saturday, January 5 at 1: 00 p.m. Reception to follow. Cremation and Spring interment at Avondale Cemetery, Stratford. Memorial contributions to the Heart and Stroke Foundation, 633 Colborne Street, Suite 150, London, Ontario N6B 2V3 would be gratefully appreciated.
