Saint Thomas native dies at competition
By Canadian Press, Mon., August 27, 2007
Toronto -- The body of a Burlington firefighter who died suddenly during an international fire extrication competition in Indianapolis, Indiana, was escorted by fire trucks and police cars back to Canada yesterday.
Saint Thomas native Wayne TOPPING, 45, died of an apparent heart attack Friday morning minutes after participating in an extrication challenge.
TOPPING joined the Burlington fire department as a volunteer firefighter in 1998 and landed a full-time job in 2000.
About two years ago, he got involved with the department's extrication team, to compete against other fire crews in the delicate art of removing trapped passengers from crashed cars.
It was minutes after his team completed its final challenge Friday, a timed event, that TOPPING started showing signs he wasn't feeling well, said Burlington fire Chief Steve THURLOW
"After completing the scenario, Wayne felt uncomfortable. He had some water. He sat down and rested for a while and then he went into a seizure."
Despite receiving immediate medical attention, he died en route to a nearby hospital.
Yesterday, TOPPING's body was taken to Burlington fire headquarters for a brief stopover on the way to a local funeral home.
His funeral will be at 1 p.m. Thursday at the Central Arena and Recreation Centre in Burlington.
TOPPING leaves behind his wife, two sons and a stepson.

The beloved wife of Walter James ARMSTRONG, who celebrated the 60th anniversary of a long, loving, and mutually supportive marriage. Born in Montreal, May 9th, 1923, Jackie graduated from The Study in 1940. She served in the Women's Royal Naval Service during World War 2, working in Bletchley, United Kingdom. Jackie and Jim ARMSTRONG were married on June 23, 1947, at Dixville Notch, New Hampshire, Jackie's family's summer home.

Jim and Jackie later lived at Roches Pt., Ontario, from 1984-1997, where Jackie was the ultimate hostess and an extremely great cook who loved entertaining. During the same time, they spent their winters in Tucson, Az., where again Jackie made many Friends. She was a woman of many interests and talents and she especially had a gift for making and keeping Friends across great expanses of time and distance. Jackie was greatly admired, and will be fondly remembered, for her kindness, keen interest in others, generosity of spirit, and wise counsel. Much loved mother of Jonathan ARMSTRONG of Costa Rica, Peter ARMSTRONG of Toronto, David ARMSTRONG of Toronto, and Airlie Armstrong BROWN of Stouffville, Ontario and their spouses. Jackie was also the dear grandmother to ten grandchildren.

BLACK, Kenneth James
Died on August 11, 2007 at Mount Sinai Hospital in Toronto from complications following pneumonia. Loving husband of Mary, who predeceased him in 1976, a devoted father to Amy and grandfather to Theo BROOKE, born August 2006; he was adored by Amy, Theo and son-in-law Stephen BROOKE. His sister-in-law Marjorie BLACK, nieces and nephew Cathy, Diane and Norm BLACK, great-nephew Gregory BLACK and great-niece Jacqueline BLACK, cousins Michel JONES, Stephen and Stuart THURSBY, Wendy and Bill KREVER, and Natalie COYLE were all dear members of his family in Ontario. He will be greatly missed by all his family from Winnipeg: brother-in-law Alfred KAYE, nephews and nieces John, Kathie, Gordon and Jeanne KAYE; great-nieces and great-nephews Liz, Cameron, Donna, Michael, and Michele KAYE, Michael PURVES- SMITH and Robert POHL. Ken was also a dear and caring uncle to niece Nicola IVANOVIC, nephews David and Neil CHAPMAN, great-nieces Natasha and Isabella IVANOVIC and Jessica CHAPMAN, all of Merseyside, England; he was a cherished brother-in-law to Rosemarie CHAPMAN and Dennis CHAPMAN, also of Merseyside. He was predeceased by his sister, Elizabeth, and brothers Ralph and Arthur, and by his nieces Jacqueline BLACK and Margaret KAYE. Ken's strong sense of loyalty and fun animated a wide circle of Friends in Canada and in England over his entire life.
Ken was born in Winnipeg on May 10, 1924, the youngest of Norman and Margaret BLACK's four children. He attended the University of Manitoba and served in the Royal Canadian Navy in corvettes during the Second World War. After the war, he became a journalist, first working at the Winnipeg Free Press and the Winnipeg Tribune then spending time in Europe and England for Reuters. In 2006, he published a memoir of his adventures during and after the war entitled Telling It Like It Was. He joined the Canadian Broadcasting Corporation in 1957 where he worked, in both radio and television, for over 35 years, in London, England, Saint John's, Newfoundland and Toronto. After his retirement he dedicated himself to his many interests, including travelling, writing, neighbourhood activism, birdwatching and his legendary annual Victoria Day Party.
Ken brought an unrivalled joy to life and touched everyone he met with this enthusiasm and with his charm and humour. He was a true gentleman, but with a wry and sometimes mischievous outlook. Ken had the gift of treating everyone with the same gracious manner. As the countless guests to his house will attest, he was the soul of hospitality. He was as happy playing with children as entertaining adults and will be remembered by a number of generations as the delightful and engaged grown-up always ready with wind-up toys, kites, stories and songs. His interests were eclectic, but they were bound together by an unceasing curiosity and energy. Ken was the cherished heart of a number of social worlds and families. He will be sorely missed. A memorial service will be held on Friday, August, 17, 2007 at 3: 00 p.m. at Enoch Turner Schoolhouse, 106 Trinity Street (one block east of Parliament, just south of King Street East, Toronto). In lieu of flowers, donations may be made in Ken's memory to the Bruce Trail Association.
