His children, Lynn (John VAN OGTROP), Paula (John WETTLAUFER) and David, with the grandchildren Brian and Stephen WETTLAUFER, Jordan, Kyle and Logan BLASER will miss their dear Papa immensely but are grateful for his generous and constant love, and the fine example he set for them.
Also mourning his loss are Dorothy's children: John and Cheryl LIVEY, Gordon and Jovita LIVEY, Janet DALE and grandchildren Alison (Gareth GIBBONS,) Andrew and Christopher. Lorrie was the last of his family, leaving in-laws in Calgary, Kelowna and Saskatchewan and many nieces and nephews across Canada.

Ordinary day, extraordinary tragedy
Couple killed on Highway 400 remembered as truck drivers await next court date
By Susan KRASHINSKY, Page A12
It was the kind of day that shouldn't have been remarkable at all, much less tragic.
On a cloudy Saturday, Don LOURIE got into his car. His wife, Elsie, was in the passenger's seat. The Scarborough couple set off along Highway 400 on a pleasure trip to Rama, Ontario
Meanwhile, Gurmail Singh BRAICH and Ali BASER steered their dump trucks onto the same highway - another afternoon on the job.
Before the end of the day, the LOURIEs would be dead, Mr. BRAICH and Mr. BASER would be in custody and three families would have their lives upended.
At the funeral yesterday, Dan LOURIE remembered his parents as high-spirited, generous and full of stories.
"I will never tire of Don and Elsie's wonderful adventures," he said.
For 21 years, the LOURIEs ran Chunky Fries, a chip truck at the 400 Market. When Mr. LOURIE sold the wagon last year, he had hoped to have more free time, manager Scott SAUNDERS said.
"You could always count on Don to be a gentleman. He was a great man to know," he said.
On Saturday, a dump truck headed south on Highway 400 collided with the concrete median. The tailgate came off the truck and flew into the northbound lanes, where it crashed through the windshield of an oncoming sport utility vehicle.
Elsie LOURIE was killed instantly, and Mr. LOURIE died shortly after. They were both 75.
Mr. BRAICH, of Brampton, is charged with dangerous driving causing death and criminal negligence causing death, while Mr. BASER, of Toronto, is charged with dangerous driving.
Defence counsel Rudi COVRE is representing both of them. He described them as hardworking family men caught in a tragic situation.
"Three families' lives have been destroyed," he said in an interview Wednesday.
Neither man had a previous criminal record.
Mr. BRAICH was released Tuesday on $100,000 bail. Mr. BASER was granted bail on Wednesday, at $30,000.
Their bail conditions forbid them to drive or even have keys to a motor vehicle, Crown counsel Harold DALE said in an interview.
Standing outside the courthouse in Newmarket on Wednesday, Mr. BASER's teenage son said the truck-driving job was the best work his father had found since coming to Canada from Turkey about a decade ago.
"He's the only one working in the family," said 16-year-old Ali. "What are we going to do now?"
He stubbed out his cigarette and excused himself. "I got to go get my dad," he said.
Mr. BRAICH and Mr. BASER will return to court in May.

MARTYN, Ian Dales
Husband, father, friend, lover of life. Born December 16, 1923, in North Bay. Died July 31, 2007, in Mississauga of heart failure, aged 83.
By John MARTYN, Page L6
Ian almost died at age 3 when his appendix burst, but he inherited a great resilience from his mother, Elizabeth DALES, who lived to 96.
Dad used to tell us that his large scar from the operation was from a sword fight during the war. He had a hard time explaining that once my sister and I learned more about the war. He had served as a navigator in a Halifax bomber in the Royal Canadian Air Force.
His father, Ian Clarence, ran Martyn Funeral Home in North Bay. Dad ran the business for a short time when his father was ill, then received his master's degree in psychology from the University of Western Ontario in London, where he met the love of his life, Dorothy PERDUE. They were married in Oakville, Ontario, on June 23, Ian loved his family, his Friends, his countless hobbies and his occupation as an industrial psychologist. He worked for most of his career at Hickling-Johnston Ltd. in Toronto following our move from Montreal in 1966. His peers respected his ability to understand what made people tick and to identify the right candidate for a position.
Ian loved to do just about everything - gardening, sports, fishing, hunting, telling you about a book he was reading, a new psychological inventory he was using, or playing a game of cards. He taught me about the value and rewards of hard work and was a great father and friend. We could spend a day landscaping, hunting or fishing and barely say a word for hours at a time - we just enjoyed each other's company.
My sister Jennifer had a steady stream of boyfriends during her university years at Western. Dad would take them on fishing trips where the only access was by old logging roads and portages that were difficult to find. All of these relationships broke up shortly after the trips. Jen did not allow her husband to join us on an adventure until after they were married.
Ian and Dorothy were a fantastic team. They held many parties and gatherings at their home and at "Ian's Island." This was Ian's favourite place in the world, an islet he inherited from his grandparents on Trout Lake, just east of North Bay. He left a priceless legacy to his family and a physical footprint on the earth.
Fortunately, Ian left us only after spending a great month on his island. He had visits from many Friends and family, gardened, made breakfast for his guests and managed to play 18 holes of golf, which he had not been able to do for more than a year.
The last thing I heard my father say, about six hours before he passed away, was to my mom: "You're beautiful and I love you," he said, and gave her a kiss.
John MARTYN is Ian's son.

D'ALESSANDRO, Lucia (March 16, 1938-May 18, 1998)
Cara Mamma Eng Nonna, We sit here now, ten years later with memories of you that will forever be ingrained in our minds. We remember the way your eyes glistened through your glasses into ours, the curls in your hair, the way your lips formed into a smile, the sound of your voice, the touch of your hand, the warmth in your hugs, and your infectious laugh. You were the centre that kept us together. For many years we wondered if we'd ever find someone who possessed the same strength, kindness, grace, selflessness, compassion, and love. Then we realized that although you are irreplaceable, pieces of your heart have been passed on to your children- Lina (Giuseppe) and Maria (Antonio) and to your belli di Nonna- Sabina (princess), Nicola (champ), Laura Lucia (schikaneed), MariaRosa (baboush) and Filippo (mushroom). We know that you're watching us from above. You are in the air that we breathe, the beat of our hearts, the sun that lights our days, and the stars that guide us at night.

LOWERY/LOWREY/LOWRIE/LOWRY chose his own route on Great Escape
By Kate DALEY, Special To Sun Media, Sun., March 16, 2008
He wasn't one of the tunnel diggers, but he may have been one of the men who secreted the dirt out in their pant legs.
No stranger to hard work, Russel William LOWERY/LOWREY/LOWRIE/LOWRY spent 35 years in the building supply business in London.
But he also had a claim to fame tied to other hard -- and deadly dangerous -- work: The Great Escape by Allied prisoners of war from a German camp during the Second World War.
Joining the Royal Canadian Air Force in 1941, LOWERY/LOWREY/LOWRIE/LOWRY saw action with 419 squadron.
Returning from a bombing run over Germany, his plane was shot down. He survived, but the enemy captured him.
He was taken to a prisoner of war camp for air officers, Stalag Luft III, from which the famous escape tunnels to the outside code-named Tom, Dick and Harry -- were dug.
LOWERY/LOWREY/LOWRIE/LOWRY spent two years at the camp, its breakout popularized by the movie The Great Escape, with Steve McQueen.
"He was one of the lucky ones that never did escape," Gregg LOWERY/LOWREY/LOWRIE/LOWRY of London said of his father.
After digging extensive tunnels under the camp, using everything from milk cans to bed boards, a large group of prisoners tried a mass escape.
Fifty men were captured and killed by the Germans and the rest turned back, said Gregg, adding it was lucky his father never made a run for it.
When the advancing Russians invaded, the Germans closed the camp and marched the men toward Berlin. LOWERY/LOWREY/LOWRIE/LOWRY was finally liberated in 1945.
"He did what he had to do," said his son.
"Once he decided on doing something, he never regretted it. He lived his life with an incredible amount of integrity."
When The Great Escape premiered, LOWERY/LOWREY/LOWRIE/LOWRY and some of the other prisoners of war were invited to view the movie in Toronto.
He told his son the film was a bit embellished, but he recognized some characters' names.
Born in Hamilton in 1913, LOWERY/LOWREY/LOWRIE/LOWRY returned to the area after the war and married Marion CAMPBELL in 1946. Their son was born in late 1947 and a daughter, Jane, in 1950.
The family later moved to London where LOWERY/LOWREY/LOWRIE/LOWRY worked for Woollatt Lumber, a company he eventually bought.
Retiring 32 years ago, he was an active golfer and curler until the last years of his life. He wintered in Florida and moved to Dundas 15 years ago.
"He was respected both in business and as a member of the Highland Country Club and Dundas Valley Golf and Curling Club," said his son.
"I never heard anybody say a bad word about him."
LOWERY/LOWREY/LOWRIE/LOWRY died at his home last Tuesday. He was 94. Besides his two children, he is survived by his wife of 62 years, Marion, and one grand_son.
Every night at 5 o'clock LOWERY/LOWREY/LOWRIE/LOWRY would sit down with a rye and soda. He was known to poke fun at the doctors who nagged him about that habit.
"He lived as long as he did because he had his own medicine," his son said with a laugh.

PINDER, Margaret Shirley (formerly HALL, née RATHWELL)
Margaret passed away December 28, 2007, in her home in Saskatoon, surrounded by her adoring family. She was ill with cancer for only a short time. Her incredible passion for life was exemplified by her commitment to her family and to her many Friends. She believed that through hard work and a positive outlook anything can be achieved, a philosophy she rigorously instilled in her children and encouraged in her grandchildren. Margaret was born to Muriel (née TEARE) and Herbert RATHWELL on July 7, 1923, and grew up in Moose Jaw. She was very proud of her farming heritage and the lessons she learned on the farm during the depression years instilled a commitment to hard work. She mixed this work ethic with her own brand of fun and the results were infectious. At age 17 she left home and went into training at The Holy Cross Hospital in Calgary, anxious to become a nurse and join the fighting overseas. As befitted her style, she was impatient to be on the front line where the action was. Her adventuresome military career took her to such far off places as Dundurn, Regina, Prince Albert and finally ended in Maple Creek where she met and married Doctor Raymond Leslie HALL (from Wadena,) and with him they established a private practice in Elrose, Saskatchewan. Both Jeffrey and Leslie were born there. Her next stop was to Toronto and during Ray's internship their third child, Janet, was born. In 1956, the family returned to Saskatoon, where Ray and Margaret set up an ophthalmologic practice. Ray died suddenly, at the age of 36, leaving Margaret with the three small children. While recovering from this tragic turn in life, she met Ross PINDER, who had recently suffered his own overwhelming tragedy, with the loss of his wife and children in an automobile accident. Their marriage brought them both out of darkness; the light was shone by three more children, Terri, Douglas, and Paul. The family became one. Marg and Ross's 46 year marriage was, from the beginning, charmed, and, for her six children, twelve grandchildren (and one great-grandchild) it will be an enduring model of an unsurpassed love affair. Marg's unwavering commitment to Ross and her support of his many philanthropic and business endeavors and to his work at Pinder's Drug Stores helped them develop a very successful partnership in life. Marg and Ross shared many fun activities together, whether it was hunting, fishing, golfing, watching football or hosting great parties and each event was never without Margaret's trademark glamour and style. No matter where they were, whether it was in Saskatoon, Sun Lakes, or Waskesui, Marg opened her home and her heart to lots of Friends and family. After Ross died in 2004, Margaret continued to foster her lifelong Friendships while teaming up with a group of very special ladies she often referred to as 'my new young Friends' who helped continue her active and dynamic life. After a wonderful 84 years, Margaret passed away surrounded by those who loved her. Knowing that she would once again be reunited with Ross, she went with the same style and grace and determination that she exhibited all her life. It doesn't get any better than that! Margaret is predeceased by both her husbands and her daughter-in-law, Jan PINDER. She is survived by her sons Jeff, Doug (Kelly), Paul and her daughters Leslie, Janet (Joe KAYORIE) and Terri (Larry CLOSE.) She will be greatly missed by her grandchildren Nicolle (Sheldon FELIX) and great-grand_son, Alexander; Natalie (Drew COX) and Robin PINDER; Sarah, Megan and Elizabeth CLOSE; Paige, Madison, Davis and Kennedy PINDER Michael and Gillian PINDER. She is also survived by her sister Joyce (Lloyd DALGARNO) and family. Please join with her family in a celebration of Margaret's life with services to be held at Grosvenor Park United Church on Saturday, January 12, 2008, at 3: 30 p.m. and reception to follow at the University Faculty Club. Email condolences may be sent to mail@saskatoonfuneralhome.com. Contributions, in lieu of flowers, may be made to the Saskatoon Community Foundation (102 - 308 4th Avenue N, Saskatoon, Saskatchewan S7K 2L7). Arrangements have been entrusted to Saskatoon Funeral Home.
