BELYEA, Rev. David Esmonde, C.S.B.
Died peacefully in his sleep at Anglin House, Cardinal Flahiff Centre, Friday evening, February 22, 2008. Father David BELYEA, born in Moncton, New Brunswick on August 14, 1927 was the son of the late Vincent and Kathleen (née CONNOLLY) BELYEA. After graduating from W. Vincent High School, he attended Saint_Joseph's College and at midyear transferred to Saint Thomas College in Chatham, New Brunswick. He entered St. Basil's Novitiate, Richmond Hill, Ontario in August 1946 and was professed August 15, 1947. Following two years of study at Saint Michael's College, Toronto, he graduated with a B.A. from the University of Toronto in 1949, after which David spent a year teaching at Catholic Central High School, Detroit. The following year he was appointed to teach at Saint Michael's College School, Toronto. Theological studies followed at St. Basil's Seminary and on June 29, 1953, David was ordained to the priesthood by James Cardinal McGuigan. During his theological studies, he pursued studies at the University of Toronto, from which he earned an M.A. degree in Philosophy in 1954. This was followed by two years of teaching at Saint_John Fisher College, Rochester, and then a year teaching at the University of Saint Michael's College. From 1957 to 1959, Father BELYEA studied at the Angelicum in Rome where he was awarded an S.T.D. degree in Theology. From 1959 to 1986, Father BELYEA taught Theology to undergraduate students at Saint Michael's College. He was greatly esteemed and admired by his students during those years for the challenging and enthusiastic presentation of his lectures and rapport with his students. Many continued to seek him out for advice and counseling after graduating. Father BELYEA spent the year 1986-87 involved in pastoral ministry at the Newman Centre, Toronto and from 1987-1996 was appointed at Holy Rosary parish in Toronto as a Pastoral Associate. In 1996 Father David returned to the University of Saint Michael's College where he lived in retirement, but not without considerable activity. When he was not ministering to his confreres at Anglin House, whom he visited daily for the Liturgy, he filled his day with reading and counseling those who sought his direction and advice. Father BELYEA was an avid sports fan and had a keen interest in the political scene at home and abroad. In 2006, when Father David was in need of special health care, he moved to Anglin House in the Cardinal Flahiff Centre, Toronto. Father BELYEA is predeceased by his parents and four brothers, Daniel, Paul, Joseph and William. To his many Friends, the Basilian Fathers offer their sympathy.

Eccentric teacher made school fun
By Ronnie SHUKER, Special To Sun Media, Sun., April 6, 2008
When Peter CONNON was schoolmarmin,' his varmints in Room 116 always knew when math class was over.
"Away ya went, ya happy varmints!" he would say.
CONNON was a teacher, "schoolmarmin' as he called it, at South Huron District high school in Exeter from 1968-86.
"He was such an enjoyable… amiable character," said Joe WOODEN, a former South Huron principal. "He cultivated being a character, and he was able to do that really, really well."
He died March 28 at age 84.
CONNON routinely turned the 1, 2, 3s and A, B, Cs of arithmetic and algebra into farm animals and fruit to make math more accessible to struggling students.
His charming wit and unorthodox teaching style endeared him to students like Jean MASON, who took CONNON's Grade 12 math class in 1970 and has worked at the high school since 1972.
"He saw and taught things differently," she said. "He definitely walked to the beat of his own drum."
CONNON was as popular in the staff room as he was in the classroom. After class, he could be found debating politics with his peers while puffing on his Daily Mail hand-rolled cigarettes.
The eccentric teacher took an eclectic route to the classroom.
He worked as a real estate agent, stock broker and forester after graduating with a B. Sc. in forestry from the University of Toronto in 1949.
He also served with the Royal Navy's Fleet Air Arm in Britain during the late stages of the Second World War.
"He saw quite a bit of adventure and danger during his life," said his son, Hugh, 48, who works for the Ministry of Forest and Range in British Columbia.
CONNON once had to scamper up a high stump to avoid being chased by a bear while working as a forester on Vancouver Island in the late 1940s.
He also had to guard a homicidal cook struck with bush fever in a remote outpost in Northern Ontario with no radio in the '50s.
CONNON left forestry for teaching, settling in Exeter and living just two blocks from the school.
Although he left life among the trees, the forest never left him. He remained an ardent conservationist and expert woodsman his entire life. He enjoyed hunting and was a skilled angler.
CONNON defeated both colon and kidney cancer, and survived two strokes.
He is survived by his wife, Maude, his children Patricia, Jane, Hugh and Matthew, and five grandchildren.

NELSON, Ronald Sr.
It is with great sadness that the family of Ronald NELSON Sr., announce his passing on March 7, 2008 at Thunder Bay Interim Long Term Care, with his family by his side. Ron was born on April 27, 1923 in Sault Ste. Marie, Ontario. As a young man, he settled in Oshawa and spent his entire working life of 44 years at General Motors of Canada. During the war years he served in the Army as a motorized vehicle driver trainer at Camp Borden. Ron and his wife Jean moved to Thunder Bay in 1998 to be closer to family. Ron and Jean enjoyed their many trips travelling and had particularly special memories of their 17 winters spent in Florida. An outstanding athlete, he enjoyed a remarkable hockey career playing junior hockey for the Oshawa Generals (two Memorial Cup Finals); senior hockey for the Quebec Aces, Sidney Millionaires, Glace Bay Miners, Peoples Credit Jewellers (Toronto Hockey League), Smith Truckmen (Wren Blair's first hockey team) and Orillia Pontiacs (league Most Valuable Player). Ron was also an exceptional fastball player. As the catcher for Oshawa Tony's Senior A team he participated in two world tournaments and was inducted into the Oshawa Sports Hall of Fame as a member of the Oshawa 'Colts' Intermediate 'A' fastball team. He also managed to maintain a 185 average for his ten pin bowling team. Later he developed a passion for golf. He enjoyed spending time with his Friends at the Meadowbrook Golf Club near Toronto and more recently at the Fort William County Club in Thunder Bay. Ron was predeceased by his wife Jean and his first wife Gwen, parents Anders and Karoline (Alfred LUNDGREN,) brothers Norman, Hans, sisters Margit, Oselio, niece Doris and nephew Stanley. Ron is survived by his sons Ronald Jr. (Colleen), Dean (Joanne), grandchildren Andrew (Sandra), Kathryn SHEWFELT (John), Trishia CONNORS (Peter) and Tashia DURNIN (Jason), great-grandchildren Bradley, Kaden, Carson and Grace and nieces Ruth, Norma, Betty, Elsie and Annelies and nephew Earl. He will be greatly missed by many other special people in the Oshawa/Toronto area (Gary and Ellie) and here in Thunder Bay, notably Sally (Glen) Hamilton and Brenda Nelson. Everyone who knew Ron commented on the fact that he was always a real gentleman, which is a simple statement that expresses how he lived his life. The family would like to express their sincere appreciation to the staff at Thunder Bay Interim Long Term Care for their care and compassion. In lieu of flowers, donations may be made to the Thunder Bay Regional Health Sciences Centre Foundation or a charity of your choice. A memorial service for Ron will be held this spring when family are able to attend. An announcement will be published when the date is established. On line condolences at: www.jenkens-funeral.ca

Canada's youngest-ever general quit over the unification of forces
Promoted to brigadier at 27, he led armoured units through fierce fighting all the way from Normandy until the fall of Germany. He later became vice-chief of defence staff
By Buzz BOURDON, Special to the Globe and Mail, Page S10
Ottawa -- Standing stiffly at attention in front of a very senior British officer, Robert MONCEL of the Canadian army blinked in disbelief when the lieutenant-general told him tersely, "you may send in your brigadier now."
Keeping his temper in check, he replied, "Sir, I am the brigadier!" The corps commander had obviously neglected to check the badges of rank sewn on the shoulder straps of Gen. MONCEL's battledress jacket. He looked, he would have seen the three stars and crown of a brigadier-general.
Promoted on August 17, 1944, Gen. MONCEL was the youngest general officer in the Canadian army when, at 27, he took over command of the 4th Canadian Armoured Brigade. The general had obviously pegged him as a lieutenant, possibly a captain.
To counter his youthful appearance, Gen. MONCEL had decided to grow a mustache to make him look more mature. He was tired of people calling him "babyface on stilts!" Gen. MONCEL, a tall, slender, soft-spoken man known for his sense of responsibility, enjoyed meteoric promotion during the Second World War. Talented officers who prove themselves in combat and at headquarters are considered valuable assets, and Gen. MONCEL earned the admiration of his peers and the approval of his superiors. He commanded 4th Canadian Armoured Brigade from the breakout at Normandy, where he was mentioned in dispatches, all the way through France, Belgium, the Netherlands and into Germany until final victory on May 8, 1945.
Maj.-Gen. Harry Foster thought a lot of Gen. MONCEL. " Guy Simonds said that if I got in trouble I could always rely on MONCEL," he wrote in his diary. "I came away with the distinct impression that if young MONCEL had been 10 years older Guy would have given him the division and left me with the brigade."
That was high praise indeed. Known for his exemplary skills as a staff officer, Gen. MONCEL was able to make the transition from fighting a paper war to commanding soldiers in battle. Not every officer can. " MONCEL proved to be an excellent brigadier. The officer he replaced was suffering from stress and fatigue and had been drinking heavily, behaviour that had an adverse effect on the formation. MONCEL's tenure of command would prove a great contrast. He provided competent leadership and was well respected," said retired major Michael McNorgan, co-author of The Royal Canadian Armoured Corps: An Illustrated History.
Mr. MONCEL was awarded the Distinguished Service Order for the leadership he displayed at the end of February, 1945, when 2 Canadian Corps mounted Operation Blockbuster. Commanding Tiger Group, Gen. MONCEL and his force fought a tenacious enemy during the Battle of the Hochwald Forest.
He "stationed himself well forward with the leading battle groups and on several occasions, when the impetus of the attack was in danger of being lost by stubborn enemy resistance, personally directed consolidation of objectives and the further forward movement of his armoured and infantry elements," the DSO citation read. "All this was done under extremely heavy hostile fire, and the gallant bearing of this officer, and the complete disregard for his own personal safety, were an inspiration to all troops under his command."
Bob MONCEL was born into the 12th generation of an old French-Canadian family. His father manufactured electric fuse boxes and wanted his son to take over the company, but young Robert decided business was not for him. While studying at Bishop's College School in Lennoxville, Quebec, he found a spiritual home in its cadet corps. Founded in 1861, the corps was the oldest in Canada. "It came naturally and easily to me, something I could do fairly well."
He attended Montreal's McGill University and served as an officer with the Victoria Rifles of Canada, which was founded in 1862. Back then, an officers mess in the militia was frequently an exclusive club limited to the social elite. When you applied, they wanted to know who your father was.
Canada declared war on Germany on September 10, 1939, and soon after that Gen. MONCEL went overseas with the regular army's Royal Canadian Regiment. After the Germans unleashed their blitzkrieg in May, 1940, he and the Royal Canadian Regiment were ordered to France the following month in a hopeless effort to reinforce the British Expeditionary Force. Amid complete chaos, Gen. MONCEL, who commanded a Bren gun carrier platoon, was soon ordered to turn tail and make for the French coast.
"In the chaos of the evacuation much valuable equipment was abandoned or destroyed to keep it from enemy hands. Although told to destroy his vehicles Lieutenant MONCEL instead used his initiative and cool judgment to arrange the evacuation of the carriers and got them back to Britain," said Mr. McNorgan.
That caught his superiors' attention and Gen. MONCEL was soon promoted captain. In 1941, he finished first on a staff course. The commandant, Guy Simonds, marked him as a bright officer and he was on his way. In January, 1943, he was promoted lieutenant-colonel and given command of the 18th Armoured Car Regiment (12th Manitoba Dragoons).
Eight months later, Gen. MONCEL was posted to the headquarters of 2 Canadian Corps, where he organized its general staff branch. He was made an officer of the Order of the British Empire for his "painstaking work and efficiency" there. France made him a Chevalier de la Legion d'honneur and awarded him the Croix de Guerre avec Palme.
After the war, Gen. MONCEL elected to stay in the army. He filled a variety of high-level staff jobs, including quartermaster-general, deputy chief of the general staff and commander of Eastern Command, responsible for the Atlantic provinces.
By the early 1960s, things were about to change for Gen. MONCEL and his beloved army. The Minister of National Defence, Paul Hellyer, was determined to unify the three fighting services, come hell or high water. In 1964, Gen. MONCEL gave Mr. Hellyer the benefit of the doubt and became the first comptroller-general of the integrated Canadian Forces Headquarters. A lieutenant-general at only 47, he had almost eight more years to serve until compulsory retirement at 55. There was still time to go even higher. In 1965, he was appointed vice-chief of defence staff.
In his 1990 autobiography, Damn the Torpedoes, Mr. Hellyer recounted how he had briefly considered appointing Mr. MONCEL the second chief of defence staff. "A handsome, debonair and bilingual officer, Bob had an excellent war record and was a good administrator. Nevertheless, he was something of an enigma. He wore a lace handkerchief up his sleeve -- which must have been unique in the army -- and his logic was a bit inconsistent. He spent hours trying to persuade me we should only have one regiment of Canadian infantry, with numbered battalions. That would have meant abolishing [some] famous Canadian regiments."
Mr. Hellyer soon decided that offering the top job to Gen. MONCEL would be a mistake. "Whereas, I had managed to outlast [Air Chief Marshal Frank Miller], the reverse would be true with a younger, fresher antagonist [Mr. MONCEL] who could scuttle the plan by simply stonewalling until I was gone."
In 1966, amid tremendous controversy over unification that split the country, Gen. MONCEL decided the minister was moving too fast and resigned. In his book, Mr. Hellyer implied Gen. MONCEL was unhappy with the appointment of Lieut.-Gen. Jean Allard as chief of defence staff. "The three remaining top men had decided, overnight, to resign en masse. It appeared to me like a calculated attempt to embarrass me in the eyes of my government colleagues and the public."
The following year, in February, 1967, Gen. MONCEL, who usually shunned the spotlight, appeared in front of a Parliamentary committee to express his doubts about unification. "To me, [unification] appeared to be moving on an uncharted course at a very, very high speed towards a very, very dim destination, and I did not think I could produce the staff work necessary at that speed to keep the thing on the rails."
"He clobbered us," Mr. Hellyer wrote. "He had been a very effective witness. He said he wasn't opposed to unification, per se, if there were a change in Canadian commitments. However, with our existing commitments, it would affect our close working relationships with the United Kingdom and U.S. This was a bit of stuff and nonsense, but it sounded plausible to anyone who wanted to believe it."
It didn't take long for Gen. MONCEL to get another job. Appointed co-ordinator for visits of foreign heads of state during Canada's centennial celebrations in 1967, he supervised 54 state visits to Ottawa and Montreal, including the Queen, the Shah of Iran and the Emperor of Ethiopia. After it was over, he was made an officer of the Order of Canada.
Gen. MONCEL retired to Nova Scotia after Centennial year. He kept busy with painting, gardening, boating, woodworking and community projects. He also obtained his private pilot's license for airplanes and helicopters, and learned the guitar, organ and flute.
Robert Guillaume Napoleon MONCEL was born on April 9, 1917, in Montreal. He died of natural causes in Halifax on December 10, 2007. He was 90. He is survived by his son-in-law, George CONSTANTIS, grandchildren Aliki and Constantine. He was predeceased by his wife, Nancy, and by daughter Renee.
On December 17, 2007, a military funeral was held at Canadian Forces Base Halifax. The mourners included Gen. Rick Hillier, the chief of defence staff.

PLANK, James Wilfred
Heard his name on February 29, 2008. His release from earthly pain was welcome and well prepared as his loved ones were gifted with time to acknowledge and share their love and admiration for this first-class man - a gentleman and a scholar, Jim modeled a life of strong Christian values, solid family ideals, and a deep work ethic. His joy was found in his love of the Lord, his lifelong sweetheart, his family, great literature, and fine works of music. Jim had the ability to inspire those around him to rise to greater heights morally, intellectually and spiritually, challenging us all to follow our own paths. His impact was felt by many after 34 years of teaching - many of these at Herman Collegiate Institute in Windsor. And, he lent comfort to many through his years of Pastoral Care in jails and hospitals, and his Elder work in his churches. His careers included selling subscriptions to Liberty magazine as a young boy, reining in run-away horses on his 2nd job as milkman, teaching and volunteering with the Alzheimer Society. Born on October 29, 1930 in London, Ontario, Jim spent most of his school years there before moving with his parents to a farm in Merlin, Ontario. Jim enjoyed a blessed and rich childhood. He will be dearly missed by his sisters Audrey LUMLEY (John,) and Marion WINDELL. He is predeceased by his parents Laura and Fred PLANK, his sister Helen ZANIER and his brother Fredrick PLANK. Jim takes temporary leave from his wife of 53 years, Mildred PLANK and his four children - Cynthia MORRIS, Grant PLANK (Linda PLANK), Amy ROBINSON (Claude ROBINSON) and Jennifer PLANK (Michael WATTS.) He is well loved by his grandchildren: Nicole PLANK, Jennilee PINO (Brad), Benjamin ROBINSON, Andrew MORRIS, Kimberly PLANK (Eduardo), Patrick ROBINSON, Nicholas ROBINSON, Helen WATTS, Dakota ROBINSON, Emma WATTS, Nakita ROBINSON, and his Great-Grandchildren: Lucca CONTE, Amilia PINO, Ella PLANK. We invite you to share our tears and joys in celebrating the life of Jim PLANK through your prayers of thanksgiving for a life well lived. At the request of James, there will be no funeral or public memorial service - his spirit lives on when you gather for prayer, raise your voice in song, or are moved by fine prose. Donations to the Foundation of Chatham Kent Health Alliance-Magnetic Resonance Imager Campaign (http://www.foundationckha.com/mri/mri.html) or charity of your choice, would be greatly appreciated. Arrangements entrusted to McKinlay Funeral Home, 459 St. Clair Street, Chatham. (519) 351-2040.

CLARK, Alexander Barry " Arch"
On Wednesday, July 2, 2008, Barry succumbed to a 12 month battle with lung and brain cancer which was diagnosed in June of 2007 in Victoria, British Columbia. He was 62 years of age. Since September of 2007 when he was able to return to Saint Thomas, he has been a patient at the Saint Thomas Elgin General Hospital. The wonderful team of Doctor Joel KEENLEYSIDE, Doctor Paula DONAHUE and the exceptional nurses on Units C and D prolonged his life and he was able to enjoy memorable times with family, former teachers and school chums. The family sincerely thanks the afore-mentioned and those who brightened his days with visits and outings. Barry was born in 1933 while his parents, the late Stanley and Agnes (McCALLUM) CLARK, lived in Dutton, Ontario. Shortly after his birth, the family moved to Saint Thomas where Barry attended Scott Street School and later excelled in academia, basketball and volleyball at CECI and Saint Thomas Collegiate Institute. He was fortunate to be able to attend University of Toronto on a full scholarship and graduated with a degree in Mechanical Engineering. He entered the computer field at an exciting time and most of his career as an analyst was spent with International Business Machines Corporation - in Toronto, Montreal, Saint_John, Winnipeg and Calgary. Laterally, he spent his life in beautiful Victoria. He was an avid reader, a lover of jazz and he always kept fit by working out in the gym. Barry's older siblings will hold his memory close to their hearts - Bob (Mary Ellen) CLARK of the Philadephia area, Barb (Ken) TUFF of Saint Thomas, Bill (Patti) CLARK of Toronto and Newfoundland, and Bevin CLARK of Brockville. A special cousin, Doris (Stride) ROULSTON of London, will also hold him dear. Barry's nieces and nephews will always remember him for his quiet, gentle and caring nature - Meri-Sue, Mike (Hollie,) Mark and Margaret (John CONWAY) CLARK; Paul (Karen,) Jane (Bill IDSARDI) and Peter (Shelley) TUFF, Melanie CLARK- HANSEN and Jamie CLARK. Eleanor (McCALLUM) and Don BRANCHFLOWER of Glencoe and Alice (CLARK) COOK of London are his only surviving aunts and uncle. Barry bore his illness with great stoicism and determination. Cremation has taken place (Needham Funeral Service in London) and his ashes will be interred in Cowal Cemetery with his parents and many other family relatives and ancestors, all of whom originally came to the area from Argyleshire, Scotland. A memorial service and the interment of ashes will be held at a later date. Family and Friends will be notified of arrangements. "Always in our hearts"

BASMAJIAN, Doctor John V., O.C., O.Ont., M.D., F.A.C.A., (F.R.C.P.C,) F.S.B.M., F.A.C.R.M., F.A.B.M.R.
(21 June 1921-18 March 2008)
A proud Canadian, a much-decorated pioneer in medical research, an enthusiastic teacher and mentor, a prolific author, and above all, a loving husband, father and grandfather, John V. BASMAJIAN led a life of integrity and boundless energy, passing away in his 87th year after a brief illness. He was dearly loved by his wife of 60 years, Dora (LUCAS,) his children Haig (Lynn,) Nancy (Mark PHILLIPS,) and Sally (Kevin CONWAY,) and his grandchildren Matthew and Colin BASMAJIAN and Jocelyn and Peter CONWAY. Born in Constantinople to Armenian parents (Myran and Miriam), John grew up in Brantford, Ontario. He received his M.D. with honours at the University of Toronto in 1945, rising to the rank of professor in the Faculty of Medicine in 1956. A member of the Department of Neurology of the Hospital for Sick Children, Doctor BASMAJIAN spent 1953 on leave in London, England pursuing his medical research on electromyography. From 1957 to 1969, he was head of the Department of Anatomy at Queen's University, Kingston. From 1969 to 1977, he was Director of the Emory University Regional Rehabilitation Research and Training Center in Atlanta, Georgia. Returning to Canada in 1977, he became Professor of Medicine and Anatomy at McMaster University and Director of the Rehabilitation Centre, Chedoke-McMaster Hospitals. In retirement, Doctor BASMAJIAN continued to travel widely, including a mission with Project Hope to aid earthquake victims in Armenia.
The recipient of many major honours, Doctor BASMAJIAN was appointed an Officer of the Order of Canada in 1995. The citation states: "He greatly influenced generations of physicians-in-training, invented several widely-used medical devices, and developed scientific techniques. Notable among his many accomplishments was his pioneering work in electromyography, which had a significant impact on the development of biofeedback techniques, used for rehabilitation following injury to the central nervous system."
Dr. BASMAJIAN published books on medical science in several languages and was the author of more than 400 scientific articles. He was Series Editor of the 22-volume Rehabilitation Medicine Library and presented lectures at more than 100 universities throughout the world. He served as President of the Biofeedback Society of America, President and Co-Founder of the International Society of Electromyographic Kinesiology, and President of the American Association of Anatomists.
John took a keen interest in public services. He was a member of the Kingston Board of Education, Chairman of the Board of Governors of St. Lawrence College of Applied Arts and Technology, and a member of the Board of Gerontology Research Council of Ontario. Devoted to his family, he sat through countless piano recitals, built skating rinks for his children, and took profound pleasure in his beloved grandchildren.
His family extends thanks to We Care and the staff at Joseph Brant Memorial Hospital who cared for him during his last few weeks. Cremation will take place, followed by a private family gathering. A celebration of John's life will be held later this spring. Those wishing to make a donation in John's memory are asked to consider the Kidney Foundation of Canada or Alzheimer's Society of Canada.
