Victim of fatal trailer fire identified
By Sun Media, Wed., January 23, 2008
Two people tried unsuccessfully to rescue a 71-year-old man whose trailer caught fire on Monday, Oxford Community police said.
Innerkip volunteer firefighters found the body of Weldon Angus WELSH inside the burned-out trailer.
WELSH lived alone in his home at the Maple Lake trailer park on Oxford Road 29.
A neighbour who lives east of the trailer park noticed the fire just before 7 a.m.
The unidentified neighbour and the park owner entered the trailer through a side door, but they were forced out by smoke, police said.
The neighbour then smashed a rear window of the trailer but was unable to locate WELSH.
The unit was engulfed in flames when firefighters arrived, police said.
Firefighters entered the burning trailer but they didn't find WELSH's body until the fire was put out, police said.
A post mortem examination was ordered and police and officials from the Ontario Fire Marshal's office are investigating the cause of the blaze.

WELSH, Norman Francis
Passed away in Windsor Ontario on March 15, 2008 at 83 years of age. Beloved husband of the late Dawn (1975) and Shirley (2006). Loving father of Tony and wife Andrea, Elaine and husband Steve RICHARDSON. Dear Granddad of Alexandra, Katherine, Emma and David. Brother of John and wife Rosemary WELSH, uncle of Stephen and Deborah. Norman was a professor of Theater Arts at York University and U.C.L.A. until his retirement in 1993. Norman served in the Royal Air Force during World War 2 as an aircraft mechanic. After the war he attended the Royal Academy of Dramatic Arts in London, graduating in 1948 before joining the Old Vic theatre company from 1948 to 1950. Norman went on to do repertory theatre in Dundee and Glasgow until he joined the London Theatre Company and traveled with them to Canada where he remained, marrying one of the members of the company Dawn Lesley (HOBBS.) Norman performed many seasons at both the Shaw and Stratford Festivals as well the inaugural season of the Neptune Theatre in Halifax. In Toronto Norman performed at the Crest Theatre, The Canadian Players, The St. Lawrence Centre as well as numerous other plays, films, television and radio productions in the United Kingdom, Canada and the United States. Norman appeared in over 80 radio and television productions for the Canadian Broadcasting Corporation including the lead role in a television production of Dracula. Norman was very proud of his teaching work and enjoyed the energy and enthusiasm of his students. While teaching at Banff in 1976 Norman met Mary CORRIGAN and enjoyed many years with her in California. He particularly enjoyed spending many summers teaching at Oxford with the British American Drama Academy, something he also shared with Mary. This also afforded him time to visit with his extended family in England, times which he cherished. Norman retired to British Columbia, met and married Shirley and loved the west coast until he moved closer to family following Shirley's death. Norman's family would like to acknowledge and thank the staff of Oak Park LaSalle and especially to all the wonderful staff at Sunrise Senior Living where Norman lived until his passing.

GIBSON, Blair Bruce, B.Comm., C.A. (1921-2008)
(Royal Canadian Air Force, Royal Air Force)
Passed away peacefully April 5 in his 87th year. Blair leaves his beloved wife of 64 years, Joyce, daughter Sandra, son Robert (Christine) and grandchildren Megan, Lauran, Michelle and Meaghan. Blair was born in Parry Sound, Ontario, the son of the late William GIBSON and Laura SNOW. He grew up in Capreol, Ontario and was the recipient of the McCrae Gold Medal for academic excellence at Capreol High School. In 1942 Blair joined the Royal Canadian Air Force in the newly created Radar unit. When told that he would not be posted overseas, he met, fell in love with and married Joyce WELSH in 1943 in Montreal. Scant months later, seconded to the Royal Air Force, he found himself in the middle of the war in Europe. Postings followed in London, during the V1 and V2 rocket attacks, Scotland, Holland, France (on top of Mont Ventoux) and Germany. Upon his return to Canada, he and Joyce lived in Montreal where Blair completed a B.Comm. at McGill University and shortly thereafter his C.A. He joined the firm of Creek Cushing and Hodgson and quickly became partner. In 1965 Creek Cushing and Hodgson merged with Price Waterhouse and Blair became the partner specializing in mergers and acquisitions. Professionally, this was the golden era of Blair's life. In 1982, Blair retired from active practice, although he continued to be called upon by ex-clients and ex-partners for his expertise. In 1986 he and Joyce bought a house in Eagle Lake (Haliburton) which was the base for his grandchildren to learn to swim (even on May 24 weekend) and fish. Michelle still remembers trying to catch 'that little devil'. In 1994 Blair and Joyce moved down to Toronto to an easier-to-maintain condo. Travel was always a very important part of Blair's life with his family. Whether it was Lake Winnipesaukee, New Hampshire in the 1960's, Spain in the 1970's, or Hawaii and Florida in the 1980's and 1990's, Blair and Joyce always loved having family travel with them. Sandra and Robert saw much of the world with their parents and that wanderlust is now ingrained in them and their own children. The last year was particularly difficult for Blair and his family. The onset of dementia and immobility due to a broken hip forced Blair to seek Assisted Living and he found it difficult to be away from his wife. Blair's only regret is that he did not leave this world in his preferred manner to be shot at 104 by a jealous husband. Many thanks to the caregivers at Sunrise of Unionville. Friends may call at the R.S. Kane Funeral Home (6150 Yonge Street, at Goulding, south of Steeles), on Wednesday, April 9th from 2: 00 p.m. until time of Memorial Service at 3:00 p.m. Cremation.

BRANDT, Robert " Bob" Wardell
Dearest Bob, We have been so lucky to know you - a great gentleman who cared for others in so many ways. You were a straight for ward genuine good guy, having a positive impact on many lives with an unassuming graciousness, an indomitable spirit but with a bit of mischief now and again. Great respect was earned by you with your intelligence, integrity, common sense and fairness to all. With your quick wit and famous Bob Brandt humour (just ask the staff) you could brighten up a discussion. You loved problem solving from puzzles to broken equipment and management issues. The challenges captivated you. Classmates from Ontario Veterinarian College '70, Guelph named you their Class President and we have been fortunate to rendezvous every 5th year to renew those Friendships with gusto. You enjoyed opening new clinics in St. Vital and The Pas, working on Veterinary Boards and church organizations, the camaraderie with the curling team, the eventful and sometimes fateful fishing trips, bonding while hunting at the farm when you had your licence, the sometimes hospital bound but fun ski trips plus exploring and observing nature while hiking and biking far and near and special summers with family and Friends at the lake. Travel was a big part of our life, especially in your semi-retirement as we set out to explore and to meet new and old Friends. Your family was very special to you. You were born to Doctor Marvin and Martha BRANDT (both deceased) in The Pas then moved to Dauphin, Manitoba; studied at the University of Manitoba then Ontario Veterinary College before settling in Winnipeg to work at St. Vital Clinic and then Birchwood Animal Hospital. You had great visions and Birchwood grows again. We will sure miss you with all of that warmth and charm. Wife - Barb; daughter Susan and Dave SIMPSON; son David and Katarina WELSH; sister Lynne and Dave BELL -- Ian, Chris, Peter; brother Doug - Jamie, Kenneth, Adam; Father-in-law - Jack DEGUERRE; sister-in-law and brother-in-law - Sue and Ted DOBIE -- Jeff, Karen.

WELSMAN, George Grasett (1920-2008)
George Grasett WELSMAN died Sunday, February 10, 2008, at Mount Sinai Hospital in Toronto, with his family at his side, listening to his favourite music. He will be deeply missed by his wife Margo, children John (Cherie), Paul (Sandra), Carol (Pat) and Michael and grandchildren Amy, Sophie, James and Andrew. George will be remembered by those who knew him as a true gentleman, who appreciated life and lived it with discipline, zest and integrity. To his children and grandchildren, he was a cherished mentor, who always tempered his insights and advice with humour. Born in Toronto in 1920, George was the youngest and last surviving child of Frank Squire and Helen Grasett WELSMAN. He inherited a passionate interest in music from his father, the founding conductor of the Toronto Symphony Orchestra. George graduated from Trinity College at the University of Toronto with a degree in commerce and finance. He became a proud veteran of the Second World War after serving as a lieutenant in the Royal Canadian Navy, stationed in Halifax. After the war, he started his own business, Welsman Housewares Ltd., which he ran successfully for 29 years before retiring in 1985. In retirement, George divided his time between Marco Island, Florida, and his beloved cottage on Lake Joseph in Muskoka. As a third-generation cottager there, George was a passionate environmentalist who cared deeply about preserving the natural beauty of Muskoka. He was an avid tennis player, swimmer and windsurfer, who remained active in these pursuits well into his eighties. He also belonged to the B&R Club of Toronto, where he was a regular at the men's bridge table until the week of his death. George loved to read and was keenly interested in politics and economics. His primary passion, however, was music. As a saxophone player, pianist and singer, with an extensive jazz repertoire, he found his greatest pleasure in sharing and playing music with his family. Visiting will be Tuesday, February 12, 2008 from 7-9 p.m. at the Humphrey Funeral Home - A.W. Miles Chapel, 1403 Bayview Ave. (south of Eglinton Ave. East). A funeral service will be held on Wednesday, February 13, 2008 at 2 p.m. at Our Lady of Perpetual Help Church, 78 Clifton Road, Toronto.
