BREMNER, Russell George, C.A.
R.C.N.V.R. - Fleet Air Arm, World War 2
Sadly, the family announces the passing of Russ BREMNER at his home in Toronto on March 20, 2008, in his 87th year. With an abundance of fond memories, Paula (HERDMAN,) his life companion, celebrated 60 years of marriage with Russ and their family on January 31. His children Lynn, Pam (Jones), Sue (Rainville), all in Toronto and Dean in Calgary share their mother's loss, and celebrate the life their father lived with generosity, wisdom and enthusiasm. Russ was a great friend to Ron JONES, David RAINVILLE and Andrea BREMNER (Ricottone,) and a loving "Gramps" to Gillian and Lauren RAINVILLE, and Charles and Carling BREMNER. Russ was predeceased by his brother Bruce BREMNER and sister Mary WILSON.
Russ served Canada in the Fleet Air Arm during World War 2, and later became president of the Montreal Naval Officers Club. His professional career spanned 27 years of private practice in Montreal and the subsequent merger of his business with Gardiner MacDonald in Vancouver. He moved to Toronto with Paula in 1977, and spent years on the boards of many companies, which benefited from his intellectual depth and business perspective. He enjoyed a stimulating life with business associates, many Friends and his wonderful Paula to confide in.
At Russ'request, a private family service is planned and a celebration of his life will take place in the coming days.
In lieu of flowers, donations to Canadian head Injury Resource Services, 62 Finch Avenue West, Toronto, Ontario M2N 7G1 will be much appreciated.

Youth, 17, found in Ausable River
By Debora VAN BRENK, Sun Media, Tues., January 15, 2008
The body of a missing Crediton teenager has been found in the Ausable River.
Provincial police say their underwater search and recovery unit found the body of 17-year-old Ryan VANVALKENGOED about 12: 30 p.m. yesterday.
VANVALKENGOED was reported missing Friday night when he didn't return home from a friend's house in Crediton. It would ordinarily be a 10-minute walk.
His hat was found Saturday between his friend's house and a bridge spanning the Ausable River.
He was found in the river "just south of the bridge," said Ontario Provincial Police Const. Joanna VAN MIERLO.
Police launched a search by boat, air and land -- including a diver team and dog-rescue teams -- in a systematic search for the popular teen.
The cause of death has yet to be determined.
Police are warning people to steer clear of both riverbanks and waterways.
Meanwhile, William YATES, a London man last seen a week ago near his home near the Thames River, is still missing. Searchers have turned up no sign of him and police continue to investigate.
His disappearance is believed unrelated to a body found in the woods in East London on Sunday. Hikers found the body, which had been in the woods for some time.
London police have confirmed the body is that of a male but weren't releasing more information until an autopsy, scheduled for yesterday, could be completed.

Steven TRUSCOTT's 'poor Mom' spent decades fighting on his behalf
The matriarch of a military family endured divorce and disappointment before seeing justice done
By Lisa FITTERMAN, Special to The Globe and Mail, Page S7
Doris Truscott BRENNAN would tell her children that when they were older, they'd look back on their youth and want to live it all over again. Childhood, she was wont to say, is the most precious and beautiful time of life.
"Poor Mom," her most famous son, Steven TRUSCOTT, once said to journalist Bill Trent. "How could she know that the soft, golden days of my childhood would one day come to an abrupt, tragic end and that she would be visiting me in a jail?"
Back in 1950s, Mrs. BRENNAN was known as Dot TRUSCOTT, a traditional air force wife and mother of four who spent her time cooking, cleaning, doing endless loads of laundry and ensuring that her boisterous offspring minded their manners. From the family's small clapboard house in Clinton, Ontario, she was the boss who tolerated no insubordination. Petite and plainspoken, it was her way to strike a balance between strictness and love.
In June, 1959, Mrs. BRENNAN was doing what she did every year: making plans for summer vacation and occasionally socializing with her husband, Dan, in the sergeants' mess. On June 10, everything began to unravel. That's when Leslie HARPER, the father of 12-year-old Lynne, showed up on the doorstep, saying he'd been told that one of the Truscott boys had seen her. She hadn't come home the night before. The family was frantic. Steven told him that he'd given her a lift on his bike to the corner and that she'd hitched a ride on the highway.
When Lynne's body was found in the nearby bush, investigators focused on the 14-year-old who seemed to have been the last person to see her alive. It was ridiculous, Mrs. BRENNAN knew. Her tall, handsome and shy second son, who excelled at track and field and liked to fish in his spare time, couldn't have committed the grisly crime he was accused of. How could the authorities, whom she'd always respected, pin this horror on him?
She would learn to fight back, grimly and with a singular sense of purpose. She fought through his arraignment and his trial, sitting behind him and whispering words of encouragement and testifying that with four active kids, she had to do laundry more than once a week and that a dirty pair of jeans was not exceptional.
She fought against the shocking sentence to hang by his neck until he was dead (later commuted to life in prison), and she fought all the way up to the Supreme Court of Canada to have the conviction overturned. She fought without help from the air force, even as her family moved from Clinton into a secondhand trailer in a park near the small-town Ontario jail where her son was first held. And throughout, she fought to keep her family together and to shield her other children from the trauma.
"She instilled in Steven the air force way: Keep your emotions in check, stand firm in the face of adversity and never back down," said investigative journalist Julian Sher, who chronicled the family's struggle in the book Until You Are Dead. "She was efficient, she was dedicated, she was a whirlwind and she was to be reckoned with."
Mrs. BRENNAN once told Mr. Sher that she had to draw on all of her military grit to survive. "I think being a serviceperson, you learn to accept things more and make do with what you have," she recalled. "Your world has turned completely around, but you push it to the back of your mind and you look ahead. Nothing more could happen that could be worse, so it's got to get better."
But it wouldn't get better, not for a long time.
Born Doris BOWERS, Mrs. BRENNAN was an air force child herself. Her father was an engineer and worked at one point on an air-sea rescue boat. Dan TRUSCOTT, whom she met in 1942, worked on that boat, too; he first came by the BOWERS home as a family friend but soon dropped all pretence as the relationship with Doris heated up. The couple married and had four children.
Along the way, they were stationed for various periods on bases near Vancouver, Winnipeg, Edmonton, Quebec City and Rivers, Manitoba, where they lived in a shack with an outdoor toilet. It wasn't an easy life, but Mrs. BRENNAN had been ready all her life to take on the challenges of raising a family within the confines of the military. New schools and new Friends were par for the course.
Her son's arrest and what followed turned everything she knew on its head. After the trial, she worked at three part-time jobs, in a bakery, a grocery store and a cafeteria, to help keep the family afloat and to pay for gas for the monthly car trips to and from Collins Bay Penitentiary near Kingston, where Steven would serve the bulk of his sentence.
Mac STIENBURG, the Collins Bay chaplain who became a surrogate father to Mr. TRUSCOTT in prison and with whom the young man first lived when he was paroled, said the parents never let him see how scared and frustrated they were.
"They would spend time in the chapel and they'd pass on family tidbits, keeping him up to date," Mr. STIENBURG said. "They had very natural, newsy conversations. They never got into that 'poor you' or 'poor me' mindset."
The chaplain, now retired, said his most poignant memory of the mother and son was her visit in May, 1967, after they'd lost a Supreme Court bid to have the verdict overturned. After placing their faith in the ability of the judges to recognize the case as a circumstantial fiction, she was devastated, but Mr. STIENBURG said that didn't stop her driving out to the prison to speak to Mr. TRUSCOTT face to face.
"It was after-hours and because of the way it was happening, I was granted permission to monitor the visit," he recalled. "She did the exact right thing. She said, 'This isn't the end of it. We'll go on and see what we can do.' She was so strong and determined, sitting there in this cold visiting room, and I think Steve drew strength from her."
Indeed, Mrs. BRENNAN grasped at any chance to clear her son's name. When Isabel LeBourdais, a Toronto journalist, first wrote to the Truscotts to express her interest in writing a magazine exposé about why a 14-year-old would be tried as an adult and given the death penalty, the two women began to forge a Friendship made stronger by the fact that Ms. LeBourdais had a son only a little older than Mr. TRUSCOTT.
Ms. LeBourdais eventually decided that the story was one of wrongful conviction and too big to tell within the limited scope of a magazine. Instead, she wrote The Trial of Steven Truscott, a book she dedicated to Mrs. BRENNAN "with affection and profound respect."
"It really summed up their relationship," said the author's son, Julien LeBourdais. "They were two mothers with sons close in age and one of the things we always say to people is, 'I know how you feel.' But we don't really know. We can't know. You can only feel awe."
No matter how strong Mrs. BRENNAN was, the ordeal did take its toll. At one point, she took tranquilizers to get through the long days and even longer nights, while Mr. STIENBURG said she was disappointed by administrative decisions that her son must live under an assumed name when he was paroled and that he must live with the chaplain instead of coming home.
Her marriage to Dan TRUSCOTT unravelled while their son was in prison, a casualty of the pressure. Although she married again, the union didn't last and she spent her latter years living outside Ottawa near three of her children.
In an e-mail sent to supporters, Mr. TRUSCOTT's wife, Marlene, wrote that Mrs. BRENNAN was an inspiration to them all. Although the family declined to make any further comment, it seems clear she will be remembered as the fierce, stalwart mother who refused to give up on her son - the mother who, last summer, finally saw justice done when the Ontario Court of Appeal quashed the conviction, calling it a "miscarriage of justice."
She lived long enough to see it and for that, she was happy.
Doris (Dot) BRENNAN died at the Ottawa Heart Institute on December 17, 2007. She was 82. She is survived by children Ken (Lenora), Steven (Marlene), Bill (Carol) and Barb, and grandchildren David, Dwayne, Ryan, Leslie, Devon, Crystal and Tom.

BOYD, Richard Norman, M.D., F.R.C.S.
(June 5, 1944-March 29, 2008)
It is with overwhelming grief that the family of Doctor Richard BOYD announces his death at age 63 on Saturday, March 29, 2008 after a heart attack and a stroke. Rick took his last breath held lovingly by his family and close Friends Doctor Frank DEMARCO and Doctor Tom ELSDON. Rick deeply loved, and was loved by, his wife of nearly 40 years, Jane (JOHNSTON,) and cherished his sons David Richard and Andrew Macartney. Rick adored his beautiful 'daughters' Kristen (SKINNER) and Lindsay (GRAY/GREY.) He was predeceased by his loving parents Doctor Norman and Barbara BOYD, and father-in-law Robert 'Mac' JOHNSTON. He will be profoundly missed by his mother-in-law Olive JOHNSTON. Left to mourn are his sisters Judy MANNING, Mary HOPKINS (Ed DAVEY) and Heather MUNRO (Bob,) his aunt Dorothy SEARLE, brother and sister-in-laws Dick and Jane JOHNSTON, cousins, nieces and nephews, and a legion of Friends. He was predeceased by his loyal Bichon Frises, Bijoux and Beaumont. Doctor BOYD graduated from the University Of Western Ontario Medical School in 1968. He obtained his Specialist Fellowship in Urology from the Royal College of Physicians and Surgeons in 1976, and has since then practiced Urological Surgery in Windsor. He previously served as Chief of Surgery, and was currently head of Urology, at the Windsor Regional Hospital. He was one of the founders of the prostate cancer Bracytherapy programme at the Windsor Regional Cancer Centre. In recent years he has also served the community as a Provincial Coroner for Essex County. Rick was a member of the Alpha Kappa Kappa medical fraternity. An athlete, Rick ran 27 marathons around the world with a personal best of 2: 48 in Chicago. He curled in the Ontario Medical Association bonspiels, and was an avid golfer and scholar of golf history. He was a member of the Donald Ross Society. He was currently the very proud President of Essex Golf and Country Club. Rick was a skilled clinician and diagnostician, and a gentle man who exhibited great kindness to his patients. He had twinkling blue eyes, a mischievous smile and a wonderfully wicked sense of humour. Rick's prize orchids are especially beautiful this spring. Our family thanks the medical community, both doctors and nurses, who supported Rick in area hospitals over the years, and especially Ruth Anne PIETTE and Staci LEMIEUX who loyally kept his office organized in spite of him. We thank the doctors and nurses at Windsor Regional and Hotel Dieu Grace Hospitals who so valiantly tried to save him: Doctor Rob WOODALL, Doctor Anthony GLANZ, Doctor Hash PATEL, Doctor Natalie MALUS and Doctor Balraj JHAWAR, who over five difficult days demonstrated extraordinary skill, as well as great compassion and love to our family. Thank you to Carol DERBYSHIRE and Steve BRENNAN from the Hospice of Windsor; Pat BEST, Paula DEEHAN- SCHMIDT and Chaplain Joyce JARDIN from Hotel Dieu Grace Hospital; Kim VAN ALLEN and Bishop Bob BENNETT from All Saints' Church; and our community for enveloping our family in love and prayers as we ran with Rick on his last marathon. Always one to put others first, and ever the healer, Rick has made four gifts of life. His two corneas will go to enhance sight, and, ironically the "perfect urologist kidneys" will give life and hope to two patients. In order to give back to our community which Rick so loved, we ask that in lieu of flowers, donations be made to organizations that were so a part of his life: Hospice of Windsor for care of men with prostate cancer; All Saints' Anglican Church; Windsor Regional Hospital for a Cystoscopy suite; Windsor Regional Cancer Centre for the Prostate Brachytherapy Program; and Essex Golf and Country Club for a croquet pitch and garden in his name. Visiting will be held at the Walter D. Kelly Funeral Home and Cremation Centre, 1969 Wyandotte St. E. On Monday and Tuesday from 1-4 p.m. and 5-8 p.m. The Funeral Service will be held at All Saints' Anglican Church, 330 City Hall Square on Wednesday, April 2, 2008 at 11: 00 a.m. Cremation to follow. Online condolences and audio messages may be left at www.mem.com

FRENCH, James Patrick
(May 25, 1922-April 26, 2008)
Always a loving husband to Frances (née LABINE,) Pat passed away peacefully on the shores of Georgian Bay, surrounded by his family and the vivid memory of an accomplished life dedicated to his faith. He will be dearly missed by his children Michael (Colette), Paul, Paddy (Karen), Mary Fran (Brian) and Chris (Cathy). Beloved grandfather to Britt, Emma, Claire, Andrew and Thomas.
Born in Edmonton and raised in Ottawa, Pat is predeceased by his parents Martha BRENNAN and Doctor Felix FRENCH, his brothers Felix, Doctor John, Reverend Monsignor Francis and his sisters, Flora, Anna and Mary. Pat was schooled at St. Patrick's College and graduated in Civil Engineering from Clarkson in Potsdam, New York.
Pat served as a Captain in the Canadian Army and later as the Captain of Clarkson's hockey team. And while he considered opportunities in both the military and hockey, the opportunity of sharing his life with Frannie was a decision that took him to Alberta where together they raised a family.
Pat was a tireless advocate for the Misericordia Hospital in Edmonton and the Order of Grey Nuns; for the Alberta and Canadian Catholic Hospital Associations, and always a confidant of the families who quietly helped each other in the good times and bad that shaped his fifty years in Alberta.
As an engineer, Pat built the Rogers Pass. As a father, he taught his children to skate like the wind and as a husband, he and Frannie finished their work in Alberta and settled into the sanctuary of their church and their love for each other before Frannie's death in late February.
The visitation and funeral mass will be held at St. Florence Chapel, Thunder Beach, Ontario. Visitation is Wednesday, April 30, 2: 00 p.m. to 5:00 p.m. The funeral mass is Thursday, May 1 at 11: 00 a.m. Interment to follow later this spring at Renfrew, Ontario. Arrangements entrusted to the Penetanguishene Funeral Home 705-549-3155. In lieu of flowers, donations to the Caritas Hospitals Foundation (780) 482-8126, would be appreciated.

BUSH, Huntley Henderson " Ley" B.A.Sc., P.Eng.
Veteran World War 2, Royal Canadian Navy
Passed away peacefully on Saturday June 14, 2008 at the Oakville Trafalgar Memorial Hospital at the age of 82, surrounded by his 4 loving daughters; Leslie BUSH- HARRISS, Kimberley GOULD, Kerry COOK, Lindsey DRAGONE. Survived by his wife Dorothy and his sons-in-law Hal GOULD, Mike COOK and Nick DRAGONE. Lovingly remembered by his 8 grandchildren, Daniel HARRISS, Hallie and John GOULD, Jordan and Barrett COOK, Frank, Dana and Cole DRAGONE. Also survived by his sisters Audley (George) JACKSON, North Carolina; Beverley MURRAY, Toronto and Linda BRESNAHAN, Massachusetts, and their children.
Born Verdun, Quebec 1925; served as Seaman for R.C.N. and R.N. and on H.M.C.S. Snowberry 1943-45. Member of P.E.O., A.P.P.E.G.A., I.E.E.E., U.N.T.D. (Upper Canada) and Zeta Delta of Sigma Nu.
Ley grew up in Montreal, and maintained ties with Friends, colleagues and family there after he left to enlist in the Royal Canadian Navy at the age of 17. His service in the navy on the H.M.C.S. Snowberry, and particularly its role during the preparation stages of D-Day, had a profound effect on his life and he continued his association with the Canadian Naval Association until his death. As a veteran, he attended memorial services held in Canada, Normandy and recently at the 60th anniversary of the V.E. Day celebrations in The Netherlands.
Upon his discharge from the service, Ley travelled to Toronto where he met and married Dorothy MOUNTJOY. He then enrolled at the University of Toronto and obtained his Electrical Engineering Degree. He was passionate about his chosen profession and only retired, reluctantly, in his seventies. His career allowed him to indulge another passion: travel, and he worked on many projects abroad, including Europe, Hong Kong and The Phillippines.
Ley and Dorothy had four daughters in quick succession, who subsequently married and provided him with sons-in-law, and eight grandchildren whom he adored. Poppa was devoted to his grandchildren and has left them all very special memories of family ski trips, evenings at the horseraces, and amusing tales and anecdotes from his childhood.
He will be thoroughly missed and his memory cherished.
Ley passed from this life as he lived it: unfailingly civilized, considerate and dignified. Rest in peace Dad.
The Family wishes to thank the staff at Hearthstone by the Lake for their kind care this last year.
Funeral arrangements have been entrusted to The Oakview Funeral Home, 56 Lakeshore Rd. W. Oakville (one block east of Kerr St.) 905-842-2252. Please call for arrangement details.
Donations to the Canadian Cancer Society, The Hospital for Sick Children or as desired will be greatly appreciated.
