HORVATH, Rev. Tibor, S.J.
Father Tibor died peacefully on Saturday, May 17th at René Goupil House, Pickering, Ontario in his 81st year, the 62nd year of his religious life. He was born on July 28, 1927 in Banhida, Komarom-Es, Hungary. His father was Janos HORVATH and his mother Rozalia MARKUS. He entered the Hungarian Province of the Society of Jesus on the 30th of July, 1946. As a young Jesuit he escaped from Hungary, then under the Communist domination, and studied in various parts of Europe. He was ordained deacon and priest in Granada, Spain in 1957. He completed his studies with a doctorate in theology from the Gregorian University in Rome on the virtue of charity in the thought of Saint Thomas Aquinas. He came to Canada in 1962 with many other Hungarians and joined a significant community of Hungarian Jesuits in Canada. From 1962 through to 1997, Tibor was a professor of Theology at Regis College in Toronto, becoming a research professor in his later years. He was regarded as a brilliant and exciting professor. Some have said later on that he was the very best professor they ever had in their Theological studies. In 1978 he founded and edited 'Ultimate Reality and Meaning' an encyclopedic project which goes on to this day. In 1980 he became the director of METEM (International Society of Toronto for Hungarian Church History.) For two years beginning in 1994 he returned to Hungary to be the founding principal of a Jesuit High School (Gymnasium) in Miskolcs. Since then, most of his ministry has been scholarly writing. He completed most of a trilogy on the whole of systematic theology, based on the virtues of faith, love and hope. He is highly respected, and a very large circle of people has been attracted to his work. Tibor was a most gentle and kind man, and a very intelligent conversation partner. Over the years he encouraged many younger Jesuits to take intellectual ministry very seriously. He was very well appreciated at the Canadian Martyrs' Residence, 2 Dale Avenue where he lived since 1977. He suffered from ill health during most of his life, especially during his studies, but was able to work with a great sense of purpose and energy, though in recent years he became more fragile and had to manage his health very carefully. As did other Hungarian colleagues who escaped persecution in their own country and came to Canada, he has made a signal contribution to the work of the Jesuit order here and abroad. Visitation will be held at the Rosar-Morrison Funeral Home and Chapel 467 Sherbourne St. (south of Wellesley) on Tuesday, May 20 from 2-4 p.m. and from 7-9 p.m. at the Manresa Retreat Chapel in Pickering with a wake service at 8 p.m. Funeral Mass celebrated by Bishop Attila MIKLÓSHAZY at Manresa Retreat Chapel in Pickering on Wednesday, May 21 at 11 a.m. Interment will follow at a later date in the Hungarian Jesuit Cemetery in Courtland, Ontario. In lieu of flowers, donations may be offered to the Jesuit Development Office 1325 Bay St. Toronto, Ontario M5R 2C4.

Robbery possible motive in florist's death
Neighbourhood shaken after body of mother of three discovered bound and gagged in North York store
By James BRADSHAW, Page A17
A tight-knit North York neighbourhood is reeling after a local florist and mother of three died Thursday night during what police are calling an apparent robbery in which she was bound to a chair, gagged and left helpless in the washroom at the back of her store.
Felicia HOSANY's husband, Rafick, found her shortly after 9 p.m. Thursday in Flowers By Felicia on Wilson Heights Boulevard at Sheppard Avenue. Mr. HOSANY called police, who later confirmed that money was missing from the store, suggesting robbery as the motive. An autopsy revealed Ms. HOSANY died of suffocation with ligature restraints.
In a poignant tribute, several people stopped yesterday to place flowers in front of the store. Friends and customers described Ms. HOSANY, 51, as a kind and generous person who was more concerned with her neighbourhood relationships than running a prosperous flower shop.
One area resident, who asked to be identified as only Dave, said he and his wife bought their wedding invitations from Ms. HOSANY 11 years ago, and his mother is a friend who buys weekly flower arrangements to leave at her late husband's grave.
"She wasn't about business," he said. "She charged my mum $3, and my mum would give her a $2 tip and she wouldn't take the tip. She just wanted to know how the family was doing, how my mum was doing; she was just there for company. Business was secondary to the neighbourhood."
Susan SHMUEL, who owns a pet daycare and grooming centre a few doors away, said Ms. HOSANY came to her store on Thursday to buy a collar for her dog, a pit bull that was in the store with Ms. HOSANY the night of the robbery.
"It's just awful, she would come in to just say hi," Ms. SHMUEL said. "Everybody knew her to be a friendly, nice person. She was always smiling, she was always happy."
Kim PERRY has been working at the nearby Times Square Diner for eight years, where Ms. HOSANY often stopped in for meals. Ms. PERRY said they were on a first-name basis and that she was devastated by the news of her death, having just heard that Ms. HOSANY was expecting to become a grandmother any day.
Most residents and business owners describe the area as safe and quiet, a sentiment that added to their horror upon hearing the disturbing details of Ms. HOSANY's death.
"We haven't had any issues, any problems -- it's so quiet," said Josie MARQUES, a customer of Ms. HOSANY since she moved to the neighbourhood nine years ago. "It's a small little area, everybody sort of knows everybody."
But others said they have noticed the local character changing recently.
"It is a pretty safe, quiet neighbourhood, but the last year there's been a lot of drug activity," Dave said, pointing out several "hot spots" he says are dens of vice.
Another resident, Kimberly CLISH, said she has seen evidence of an increasing drug problem, and her brother discovered a used syringe in the parking lot of the Country Style coffee shop across the street a few days ago.
Police are asking anyone who might have information about the crime to get in touch with them.

MARREEL o@ca.on.middlesex_county.london.london_free_press 2008-06-25 published
Dad wants answers after son's death
By Joe BELANGER, Wed., June 25, 2008
The father of a Delhi man who died after being Tasered by Ontario Provincial Police wants to know "why they had to kill him."
Noël MARREEL said his son, Jeffrey, 36, "was a constant heartache," haunted by a drug addiction and in and out of jail, but never difficult with police.
"Why did they have to kill him?" MARREEL asked. "He's been arrested before and he's just walked out with police. He never gave them trouble."
Police used a Taser while arresting MARREEL in the hamlet of Fisher's Glen, south of Simcoe, at Front Street and Fisher's Glen Road, about 10: 30 a.m. Monday. MARREEL died two hours later and was pronounced dead at hospital.
Because MARREEL died in custody, the province's police watchdog, the Special Investigations Unit, is investigating.
MARREEL's father, 67, said he didn't know his son had been Tasered until Friends called after hearing it on a local radio station four hours later.
"What's going on?" MARREEL asked. "Are our police so poorly trained? If Tasers are that dangerous, what are they using them for? I know Jeffrey was no angel -- far from it -- but he never, to my knowledge, has ever hurt anyone.
"Why couldn't they just corner him and grab him?"
MARREEL said his son had struggled with drug addiction for about 20 years and had served time in jail.
His son had recently broken off with a girlfriend and lost a job, MARREEL said.
"He'd find work, get off drugs for five or six months, then something would happen and the spiral would start again," said MARREEL, who last saw his son Saturday when he stopped by to change clothes.
Police said MARREEL was transported to the Norfolk County provincial police station after being hit with the stun gun, where he collapsed.
Officers performed first aid until paramedics arrived.
MARREEL was pronounced dead in hospital about two hours after the initial incident.
In Toronto, Rick Bartolucci, minister of community safety and correctional services, said the province won't call for a moratorium on Taser use in the wake of the incident.
"Ontario has a very, very measured approach to the use of Tasers," said Bartolucci, who added a provincial report on the use of the guns is scheduled to be released in December.
Last week, the Royal Canadian Mounted Police announced it would restrict Taser firings following a report into what critics call "usage creep." Officers in the federal force will have a clearer direction on how and when a Taser should be used, chairperson Paul Kennedy said at the time.
He also said all people stunned with Tasers should receive medical attention, a point that is "particularly relevant for at-risk populations, such as people with mental-health issues, substance abuse problems, health and homelessness challenges."
Twenty-one people have died in Canada after being struck with Tasers.
Polish immigrant Robert Dziekanski died in October after being repeatedly zapped by Royal Canadian Mounted Police officers at Vancouver International Airport. A video of his final moments added to the debate about the use of Tasers.
Amnesty International Canada has repeatedly called for a temporary moratorium on the guns, pending an independent study of its possible risks.

Victim remembered as hard-working, generous
By Ashley HOUSE, Sun Media, Thurs., July 3, 2008
Simcoe -- Friends and family of Jeffrey MARREEL say there was so much more to him than his drug addiction and criminal record.
"He had a heart of gold," said his mother, Margaret MARREEL.
Delhi native Jeffrey MARREEL, 36, collapsed and died after being Tasered by Norfolk Ontario Provincial Police in Fisher's Glen on June 23. Ontario's Special Investigations Unit is probing the case.
Like most little boys, MARREEL was a handful, Margaret said.
She used to work in the tobacco fields in Aylmer when MARREEL was young.
"It was the summer that song The Streak was popular," she recalled.
"And sure enough you'd see Jeff, he was only two years old or so, but he'd be running through the tobacco field naked. I'd find a sock here, a sock there, his shorts over there. He was a handful."
Friends still can't believe he's gone.
"We've been Friends for 20 years," said Ron MUDFORD, who met MARREEL in high school. "We did everything together, camping, concerts, living together. He was a great guy and my best friend. It's like losing a brother."
Those close to him describe him as hard-working, compassionate and generous.
"He'd stay with me for awhile, trying to get away from the drugs," MUDFORD said, adding MARREEL was ashamed of his habit and would be clean for months before something would trigger him to use again. "I never had to ask him for grocery money or rent because he just gave it to me."
Margaret remembers her son's generosity following a house fire in Delhi, years ago.
"The guy came out of the house without any shoes on and Jeff went and gave him a pair of his," she said. "That was Jeff. Anything you needed, he was right there with it. You moving? He was helping."
The Special Investigations Unit has assigned 13 officers to the case. They continue to interview witnesses: and Friends this week.
"Civilian witnesses: who have come forward as a result of the appeal of local media… have contributed to the investigation," said Special Investigations Unit spokesperson John YOANNOU.

Ontario man wonders why his son was tasered
'We're killing too many of them… I don't want other parents to go through what I'm going through right now,' he says
By Caroline ALPHONSO, Page A5
The father of an Ontario man who died in police custody after being hit by a stun gun says he is angry that a taser was used on his son.
"I'm mad… Did they have to use that taser thing?" Noël MARREEL asked yesterday. His 36-year-old son, Jeffrey, died following a confrontation with police near Simcoe, Ontario, on Monday.
"I heard that 21 other Canadians died by a taser. What's going on? Somebody has to look into this. We're killing too many of them and we're going to kill some more. I don't want other parents to go through what I'm going through right now."
Jeffrey MARREEL died in hospital two hours after the Ontario Provincial Police responded to a call from a resident that an unwanted man was causing a disturbance at a beach hamlet in Norfolk County in southwestern Ontario.
Mr. MARREEL said his son was likely on drugs when police approached him on Monday morning. Jeffrey MARREEL had a history of drug use and was especially downtrodden after he broke up with his girlfriend last month and then lost his job at a flower nursery two weeks ago, his father said.
On Monday morning, Jeffrey was about 26 kilometres from his family home, which is in Delhi, Ontario He was seen loitering in the small, quiet hamlet of Fishers Glen. A resident who didn't want his name used said a neighbour saw Mr. MARREEL carrying a piece of metal down the road. When asked what he wanted, Mr. MARREEL looked like he was threatening with the piece of metal, so the neighbour called police, the resident said.
Police said they found a "combative male" on the street and used the taser to subdue him. Mr. MARREEL collapsed on arrival at the Simcoe police detachment. He died in hospital.
An autopsy performed yesterday was unable to determine the cause of death, and further forensic tests are being done.
But Mr. MARREEL blames the taser for leading to his son's death.
The use of the stun gun has come under scrutiny since Polish immigrant Robert Dziekanski, 40, was seen last fall on amateur video screaming and writhing on the floor at Vancouver airport after he was tasered by Mounties. His death and the public outrage that quickly followed prompted a national debate on the use of the stun guns and sparked several probes. The Royal Canadian Mounted Police said last week that it would curb the use of tasers in the face of mounting public pressure. Arizona-based manufacturer Taser International has maintained that the weapon itself is not lethal.
It is unclear how many times Mr. MARREEL was hit by the stun gun. Because he died in police custody, Ontario's Special Investigations Unit is looking into his death. Spokesman John YOANNOU said details of Jeffrey's death, including his state of mind at the time of the incident, would likely come out during the investigation.
All that has remained of Monday morning's incident is a blood stain on the pavement, circled with red spray paint.
Residents of the hamlet, meanwhile, are wondering why people high on drugs are often finding their way into their community. One resident said there have been other incidents. "I want something done because of past problems we've had," the resident said. "People we don't even know are coming at all hours of the night."
Noël MARREEL, too, is looking for answers. He last saw his son on Sunday when he stopped by the family home. The younger Mr. MARREEL didn't stay long. He drifted between his home and staying with Friends.
The father said his son had been in trouble with the law before. "He was not an easy child. He's been on drugs off and on since he was 16. You name it, I think he's tried them," he said. "He'd be good for a while and the downward spiral would start. Then he'd be going to jail and I would be bailing him out."
Mr. MARREEL said his son saw a psychiatrist once and checked himself into a drug rehabilitation centre a couple of times. "It never took. Every time something would happen, something negative, he would be on a downward spiral. He couldn't take negativity at all. If something went wrong, he would do drugs."
