Chesley war veteran and voice for farmers dies
By Mary GOLEM, For the Post, Friday, October 26, 2007
A Second World War veteran, a defender of the family farm and strong advocate for Canadian farmers, a former vice-chairman of the National Farm Products Marketing Council, a Rotarian and a dedicated family man - Clarence James (Jim) BOYNTON of R.R.#3 Chesley - passed away at the South Bruce Grey Health Centre in Chesley on Thursday, October 18. He was 88 years of age.
A large crowd attended Mr. BOYNTON's funeral at Saint_John's United Church in Chesley on Monday, during which time Mr. BOYNTON was remembered for his dedication to agriculture, community and family his knowledge and opinions, often expressed in letters to the editor in area newspapers, along with his wit, charm and fun-loving nature.
In the mid-1970s, Mr. BOYNTON accepted an appointment as vice-chairman of the National Farm Products Marketing Council from then agriculture minister, the Hon. Eugene Whelan. In an e-mail read at Monday's service, Whelan paid tribute to Mr. BOYNTON and expressed his sympathy to his wife of over 60 years, Ina; their three children, Donna BOYNTON of New Brunswick, Bob and his wife Ellen of Ottawa and Patricia McCURDY and her husband Frank of Tara. He will be missed by his nine grandchildren and two great-grandchildren.
A Second World War armoured corps veteran and active member of Branch #144 of the Royal Canadian Legion in Chesley, Mr. BOYNTON was a tank commander with the Fifth Armoured Regiment and was wounded twice, once in Italy at the Gothic Line and again in the late days of the war in 1945 in Holland.
He married his wife, Ina, just two months before he went overseas for military duty. Mr. BOYNTON carried with him a scrap of shrapnel in his head and wore hearing aids in both ears to help with difficulties brought on by damaging battle explosions.
He served his local Legion Branch in different executive positions, including president and padre.
He began to farm in the Chesley area when he returned from the war and soon became active in his local community and the larger farm community.
He was an organizer with the Federation of Agriculture and founder and later secretary/ manager of the Ontario Pork Producers Marketing Board. He was also a founding member of the Saugeen Community Credit Union, an active member of Saint_John's United Church in Chesley, and strong supporter of the local Chesley Hospital. Each year, Mr. BOYNTON was a participant in the hospital's fundraising walk, often being the oldest participant and often bringing in one of the highest pledge totals.
"We have lost a good friend and a great Canadian," Mr. Whelan said in the e-mail read at Monday's service.

Deadly triangle
A London teacher and one man are found dead in a car. Another man is shot in a parking lot.
By Joe BELANGER, Patrick MALONEY and Joe MATYAS, Sun Media, Mon., December 10, 2007
A London teacher is dead and a colleague recovering in hospital after a stunning parking lot ambush yesterday that preceded an apparent murder-suicide 300 kilometres away.
Angela SEDORE, 40, was found dead in her sport utility vehicle near Peterborough just hours after Ed DICKSON/DIXON -- a fellow teacher at Ashley Oaks elementary school -- was shot by SEDORE's boyfriend outside a south London plaza, family members say.
SEDORE's sister said she had been dating a man named Ray KING for two years.
The bodies of KING and SEDORE were found, apparently shot to death, in her sport utility vehicle south of Peterborough following a police chase.
"This guy obviously came for one thing and that was to kill all three of them," DICKSON/DIXON's father, Ken DICKSON/DIXON, said.
DICKSON/DIXON's father said it appears a phone call to his son's home from a colleague whom his son had just started dating may have set the tragic chain of events in motion early yesterday.
DICKSON/DIXON, 36, told his father SEDORE sounded distraught and wanted to meet him, so he decided to go see if everything was all right. He later described to his father a chilling scene.
Upon arriving at the parking lot outside the A and P store at Wellington and Commissioners roads about 1: 40 a.m., he approached the woman's vehicle when a man hopped out, armed with a gun.
The man fired, the bullet ripping through one side of DICKSON/DIXON's stomach and out the other, then through the window of his Jeep, he told his father.
"If he didn't turn (his body,) he'd be a dead man," Ken DICKSON/DIXON said after visiting his son in the hospital. "A gunshot wound to the stomach, you're a dead man."
Remarkably, Ed DICKSON/DIXON told his father he jotted down the licence plate number as the vehicle drove off.
Within an hour, SEDORE's apartment on the second floor of a quaint Hyman Street home was swarming with police officers whose dramatic arrival stunned neighbours.
Durham regional officers, east of Toronto, were on alert for SEDORE's sport utility vehicle in connection with the London shooting and would soon be following it.
About 4: 45 a.m. yesterday, the Ontario Provincial Police was asked to follow the sport utility vehicle as it travelled north on Highway 115, which runs from Highway 401 to Peterborough, SEDORE's home town.
The sport utility vehicle drove over a police spike belt and went into a ditch, about 10 kilometres south of Peterborough. SEDORE and a man found inside were dead of apparent gunshot wounds.
Police sources told Sun Media the dead man in the sport utility vehicle is Ray KING, 41.
A neighbour, who described SEDORE as a "wonderful" person, said the teacher had been dating a man named Ray.
Having dramatically changed his appearance -- dropping 30 pounds and getting a new haircut -- he was visiting her in London this weekend, the neighbour said.
Officers from the Ontario Provincial Police and city police were at SEDORE's apartment for much of yesterday, taking away a slew of items including her computer, a neighbour said.
SEDORE's birth mother, who only met her now-grown daughter three years ago, was stunned by yesterday's tragedy.
"There's no words to say how I feel," Johanna YATEMAN said when contacted at her Peterborough home. "I feel great, great loss."
The Special Investigations Unit, which probes any civilian death involving police, is investigating the case.
"This is a tragic circumstance and there's a lot to be done," the Special Investigations Unit's lead investigator, Allan EATON, said.
Ken DICKSON/DIXON, who travelled to London from Detroit during the weekend for a family Christmas party, said his son was conscious but struggling in the aftermath of his close call. "He's starting the goofy stuff -- 'I should have called the police (before going),' " he said.
Several teachers at Ashley Oaks, reached at their homes yesterday, declined comment.
A huge swath of the parking lot at the busy south-end plaza -- which houses several restaurants and a busy grocery store -- was taped off for hours as officers scoured around DICKSON/DIXON's green Jeep, a bullet hole clearly visible in its side window.
Shoppers coming in and out of the A and P were stunned by the scene.
"This city is getting bad," said one elderly woman. "You've got to have eyes in the back of your head."
DICKSON/DIXON's shooting happened fewer than 24 hours after the death of Anthony BRUN in an Old South home a few blocks away. A man [later identified as Gordon Tyler McCURDY] has been charged with second-degree murder in the 24-year-old's death.
What Happened
Late Saturday Night: Londoner Ed DICKSON/DIXON gets a distraught-sounding call from a fellow teacher at Ashley Oaks elementary school. He goes to meet her at the A and P store parking lot at Wellington and Commissioners roads, arriving about 1: 30 a.m. yesterday.
A man with a gun exits the woman's vehicle and fires a shot that rips through DICKSON/DIXON's stomach. The vehicle takes off. Wounded, DICKSON/DIXON jots down the licence plate and calls police.
Yesterday, 4: 45 a.m.: Durham Regional Police ask Peterborough Ontario Provincial Police to intercept an sport utility vehicle, wanted in a London investigation, along Highway 115, which extends north from the 401 toward Peterborough.
The sport utility vehicle runs over a police spike belt south of Hwy. 7A and ends up in a ditch, 10 km south of Peterborough.
Ontario Provincial Police find the bodies of a man and a woman Ray KING of Belleville and London teacher Angela SEDORE -- in the sport utility vehicle. They appear to have been shot to death. The sport utility vehicle is registered to SEDORE.

'An amazing guy' lost
Family say Anthony BRUN, who was killed Saturday, would do anything for them.
By Patrick MALONEY, Sun Media, Mon., December 10, 2007
A 24-year-old Londoner slain this weekend was remembered yesterday as a well-liked man who would do anything for his parents and brothers.
Anthony BRUN, a John Paul II alumnus who worked with a relative in the flooring business, died in hospital following an incident inside an Old South home early Saturday.
"He was a wonderful young man," Mary BRUN, Anthony's stepmother, said yesterday.
"My son, my beautiful son was taken. And it shouldn't have happened."
Added BRUN's 14-year-old brother, Nick, "He was an amazing guy. All my family think he's an amazing guy. I loved him."
Relatives say BRUN was out with acquaintances Friday night and returned to one of their homes, at 189 Belgrave Ave. just south of Emery.
London police were called at about 7 a.m. Saturday following what was described as a "disturbance." A relative says BRUN was found injured on the front lawn.
He was later pronounced dead in hospital. A man who lives at the home is charged with second-degree murder in London's fourth homicide of 2007.
As an active teenager, BRUN was a basketball player who spent years refereeing tournaments across the city.
"He was… well-liked by people," said his emotional father, Luigi. "I'm shocked. I cried all night (Saturday) night. He was my oldest son, you know?"
About a year ago, BRUN crossed paths with police as a witness to a shooting inside Robinson Hall, a posh downtown nightclub.
He was arguing with a cousin, Luciano BALDINELLI, over a gold chain when a third man shot BALDINELLI. BRUN wasn't charged in the incident, a relative said.
The funeral is slated for 11 a.m. Thursday at Saint Mary's Church on Lyle Street.
Gordon Tyler McCURDY, 33, who lives at 189 Belgrave Ave., is charged with second-degree murder.

Widow found slain
Her son is charged with murder in the death in the complex in Westmount.
By Katherina DEHAAS, Patrick MALONEY and Daniela SIMUNAC, Sun Media, Wed., December 26, 2007
Cranbrook Trace is a caring little community, a clutch of high-end London condos where residents greet their neighbours by name and keep an eye out for one another.
Some in the Westmount complex would dutifully check in on Helen VICARY, calling every few days to say hello and see how the kind, elderly widow was getting along.
Then, a few weeks ago, she stopped answering the phone.
She was no longer seen picking up her mail, either.
Now, a 48-year-old man, identified by neighbours as VICARY's son, is charged with second-degree murder in the death of a woman whose body was found at his mother's home on Christmas Eve.
Police haven't publicly identified the woman.
"We did notice that we hadn't seen (VICARY) in awhile," Eric JOHNSON, who lives a few doors away, said yesterday. "In the last month, we hadn't seen her at all."
Monday, London police swooped down on the VICARY home, unit 23 at 505 Cranbrook Rd., while searching for someone reported missing that morning.
A woman was found dead inside.
That night, neighbours say police went door-to-door asking about Helen VICARY.
Craig James VICARY, 48, whom, neighbours identified as Helen's son, is charged with second-degree murder. He had been living at the condo, police said yesterday.
With investigators still scouring the home for evidence, neighbours who would be otherwise occupied with the holiday were shaking their heads over the city's sixth homicide of the year.
"Obviously, we're all shocked by it," said one man. "It's really not hit home yet. We really haven't had a whole lot of time to reflect on it."
One neighbour said VICARY moved into the condo about three years ago but had lived alone since her husband died Christmas Day two years ago. Her grown children live in the area.
Investigators were first called to the condo Monday after a report of a missing person. Police haven't said who notified them of the disappearance.
Police then searched for a brown, four-door Pontiac Grand Am, which was registered to Helen VICARY.
JOHNSON, who described the elderly VICARY as kind and friendly, said the homicide is "unnerving… a close community. A lot of elderly people and we watch out for each other."
The Christmas Eve discovery marked the third serious incident in London this month. Early December 8, 24-year-old Anthony BRUN was found injured outside an Old South home and later died in hospital. Gordon Tyler McCURDY, 33, is charged with second-degree murder. Later that day, teacher Ed DICKSON/DIXON was seriously hurt in a south-end parking lot shooting. Angela SEDORE, who taught with DICKSON/DIXON, was killed in a murder-suicide, apparently at the hands of Ray KOVACS, whose body was found in her sport utility vehicle after a police chase.
