Boater feared drowned
The Strathroy man's wife saw him slip under the water in Balsam Lake, Ontario Provincial Police say.
By April KEMICK, Sun Media, Fri., July 13, 2007
Thrown from a sailboat on the waters of a Lindsay-area lake, the last thing Justin SIPLE saw before he disappeared under the waves was the face of his young wife.
The Strathroy father of two wasn't wearing a life-jacket when he, his wife, daughter and a family friend were tossed from the boat Wednesday night.
Yesterday, SIPLE, 29, was the focus of a search on Balsam Lake, largest of the Kawartha lakes, north of Lindsay.
Ontario Provincial Police officers, divers, emergency workers and volunteers have scoured the lake, but with little hope of finding SIPLE alive.
"The conditions on the lake were horrendous" when SIPLE was tossed into high waves amid heavy rain, Ontario Provincial Police Sgt. Mark WOLFE said yesterday.
A string of boating deaths has prompted police and water safety advocates to call for increased use of life-jackets.
"If people wore a life-jacket when they boat, just like they put a seatbelt on when they drive, chances are the number of drownings would be reduced dramatically," said Barbara Byers, a director with the Lifesaving Society.
SIPLE's young wife, who was wearing a life-jacket when she was thrown from the five-metre boat, along with the couple's two-year-old daughter and the family friend, tried desperately to keep her husband afloat in the choppy waters, said WOLFE, of Kawartha Lakes Ontario Provincial Police.
But the conditions were too strong even for SIPLE, a stocky army reservist. Within minutes he disappeared, WOLFE said.
"The last (his wife) saw him, he was slipping under the water."
SIPLE's wife, daughter and a family friend were rescued by a passing boater, he said.
All had life-jackets, he said.
Yesterday, a fourth jacket -- stowed aboard for SIPLE, but not worn -- washed ashore.
The law doesn't require boaters wear life-jackets -- only that there be one aboard for every boater. Still,
Only a life-jacket could have saved SIPLE's life, said WOLFE.
"It wouldn't have mattered if he was the greatest swimmer," "He couldn't have manoeuvred that lake (Wednesday) night."
Last year, 80 per cent of boating related fatalities in Ontario Provincial Police-patrolled waters occurred when people weren't wearing life-jackets or personal flotation devices, said Ontario Provincial Police marine co-ordinator Sgt. Bob MINIELLY.
At least 60 per cent of this year's deaths also involved people not wearing life-jackets or flotation devices, he said.
SIPLE, a corporal with the 31 Combat Engineering Regiment out of Saint Thomas, was father to a four-month-old boy as well as his two-year-old daughter.
Pictures on SIPLE's online Facebook page portray a doting dad and proud reservist.
He was an "amazing husband," according to a passage on his wife's Facebook page.
SIPLE had been a reservist with the 31 Brigade for seven years, said Lt. James TERPSTRA, a brigade spokesperson.
"Our thoughts and prayers go out to his family and Friends," he said.
Police have pinpointed the area where the boat overturned and will scour it "every day until we find him," said WOLFE.
The search continues today.

BESEN, Eleanor Shirley (née WOLFE)
Died peacefully at her home in Toronto on Thursday, June 28, 2007, following a courageous and graceful struggle with cancer, which defeated her body, but never her spirit or sense of humour. Born in Toronto on January 1, 1924. She is predeceased by parents Maurice and Tillie WOLFE, and brothers Ray, Leonard, Jack, and Harvey. She is survived by her adoring immediate family, daughters Joan, and Ellen BESEN, and Ellen's companion Steve BARR, grand_son Sunny THRASHER, and granddaughter-in-law Bree TIFFIN, granddaughter Tamar LIPSEY, and by her long time dear companion, Harold KELSALL. She is remembered lovingly by sisters-in-law, nieces, nephews, cousins, and extended family members, as well as the innumerable Friends whose lives she so deeply touched. The family wants to give special thanks to Eleanor's caregiver, Cynthia SEGARRA, who did so much to make an unbearable situation bearable not only for Eleanor but for the family, and to Fatima PEREIRA, without whose soup and muffins a difficult situation would have been much worse. Also thanks to Lisa and Chedita. Eleanor was a graduate of the University of Toronto in the field of Occupational Therapy. She was a fine painter, specializing in watercolours. A graduate of the Ontario College of Art, and a member of the Ontario Society of Watercolorists and the Arts and Letters Club. She was a folk dancer, a line dancer, a belly dancer, and a world traveller. She had an astounding eye for beauty, colour and proportion, and this wonderful ability was evident in every part of her life and made the lives of everyone who knew her richer and more beautiful. She will be missed. The family would like to thank the Temmy Latner Centre, Doctors MEUSER, and RIEGER, and nurses Dusanka, Richard, and May for the wonderful palliative care which they provided. At Benjamin's Park Memorial Chapel, 2401 Steeles Ave., W., (3 lights west of Dufferin), for service on Sunday, July 1st at 11: 30 a.m. Interment Beth Tzedec Memorial Park.

DE WOLFE, Andrea Juda
A.J. DE WOLFE (Andrea Juda,) 34, left us on August 1, 2007. Although her years with us were few, she drank deeply from the cup of life. Born in Toronto December 18, 1972 to Rick and Jane, she was active and energetic from the start: swimming with the Scarborough Swim Club, playing saxophone and trumpet at Malvern C.I., skiing and rollerblading in Banff, and playing women's hockey leagues in Ontario. Wed to Jamie July 8, 2000, she soon suffered a severe back injury in an accident. Nonetheless, she endeavoured to run across Ontario. Her physical injuries halted this dream. Still, her adventuresome spirit kept her ambition strong. A kind, generous, loving person, a friend to any and all, A.J. actively pursued helping others: as a national lifeguard, a lifeguard instructor, her work with the Workplace Safety and Insurance Board, volunteering with the Red Cross in Cozumel, and studying to become a paramedic. Her happiest moments were putting a smile on someone's face with a dose of her famous silliness, or delivering Christmas presents to disadvantaged children in Mexico. She left us too soon, but she lived her few years to the fullest. A.J. your warm, fun-loving spirit will be deeply missed by all who knew and loved you. Friends will be received at the Ridley Funeral Home, 3080 Lake Shore Boulevard West (between Islington and Kipling Avenues, at 14th Street, 416-259-3705), on Thursday from 12: 00 noon to 2:00 p.m. A Memorial Service will be held 2: 00 p.m. at Ridley Funeral Home Chapel. In lieu of flowers, donations can be made to the Canadian Red Cross or to plant a tree in Memory of A.J., please contact Memory Woods Canada at 1-866-214-2080.

FEHEREGYHAZI, Tibor (1932-2007)
Family and Friends mourn the passing of Tibor FEHEREGYHAZI, who died July 10th 2007 after a lengthy battle with prostate cancer. Tibor was born February 14th, 1932 in Budapest, Hungary. He rose to prominence as a child actor with the Hungarian National Radio service. He later graduated from the National Theatre and Film School in Budapest and appeared in numerous stage and film productions. In 1956, Tibor was one of thousands of young Hungarian's who fought in the Hungarian Revolution. That act of national patriotism and defiance forced him to flee the country, first to Italy and then Canada. Tibor celebrated the 50th anniversary of his arrival in Canada on July 1st of this year. Determined to stay in theatre, Tibor washed hospital floors, worked in camera shops and eventually attended the National Theatre School in Montreal. He went on to become the resident director of the second stage theatre at the Manitoba Theatre Centre, in Winnipeg, the artistic director of Magnus Theatre in Thunder Bay and the artistic director of Persephone Theatre in Saskatoon. Tibor received numerous awards including the Order of Canada in 2005. Tibor's first love was theatre… the art, the artists, and the audience. He often said the most important person in the theatre was the audience. It was a belief he instilled in all those who were a part of the Persephone family. Tibor could often be seen at the theatre before and after each performance talking to patrons, getting to know them, their likes and dislikes. It was after one elderly season ticket subscriber told him that she wouldn't be coming to the theatre any more because she didn't like to drive at night, that he organized a service, where a bus would pick up subscribers, take them to dinner and then to theatre and return them home. Tibor leaves to mourn his wife Rosalie WOLOSKI, children, Andrei, Natalie, Tony and Steven FEHEREGYHAZI, Sara (NOVAKOWSKY,) grandchildren Dan and Becky (NOVAKOWSKY) and Jason (FEHEREGYHAZI,) sister Edith (HOLLOS) in Budapest and nephews Zoltan and Janos (HOLLOS) in Budapest, as well as his extended theatre family. A Celebration of his life will be held Tuesday; July 17th at 10: 00 a.m. at Persephone Theatre, 2802 Rusholme Road Saskatoon, Saskatchewan. In lieu of flowers, donations made to the Canadian Cancer Society (438 2nd Ave. N. Saskatoon, Saskatchewan. S7K 2C3), the Dialysis Unit at Saint Paul's Hospital (1702 20th St. W. Saskatoon, Saskatchewan. S7M 0Z9) or Persephone Theatre (2802 Rusholme Rd. Saskatoon, Saskatchewan. S7L 0H2) would be appreciated. Email condolences may be sent to mail@saskatoonfuneralhome. com. Arrangements have been entrusted to Saskatoon Funeral Home.

High Flight
Oh! I have slipped the surly bonds of earth And danced the skies on laughter-silvered wings; Sunward I've climbed, and joined the tumbling mirth Of sun-split clouds and done a hundred things you Have not dreamed of -- wheeled and soared and swung High in the silence. Hov'ring there I've chased the shouting wind along, and flung My eager craft through the footless halls of air. Up, up the long, delirious, burning blue I've topped the wind-swept heights with easy grace Where never lark, nor even eagle flew-And, while with silent lifting mind I've trod The high untrespassed sanctity of space, Put out my hand and touched the face of God.
