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.

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.

Holiday sojourn ends in grief and sorrow
Police suspect fatigue in grisly crash on 401
By Timothy APPLEBY, Page A1
Toronto -- For 21-year-old New Yorker Niki CHAN and her Florida-based parents, the post-Christmas trip to Canada was to be part vacation, part reunion.
Their first stop was Montreal. From there, on to Toronto and the CN Tower. After that, Niagara Falls before returning south.
They never got that far.
Instead, their journey ended in a horrific two-car crash on a stretch of Canada's busiest highway that killed two people Sunday afternoon. Ms. CHAN's father was one of the victims, and she is now facing twin counts of dangerous driving causing death.
The principal culprit was fatigue, authorities suspect.
One report said the Lexus Ms. CHAN was driving veered across three lanes before striking a disabled Subaru parked on the median of Highway 401. Ontario Provincial Police spokesman Sergeant Cam Woolley said there was no evidence Ms. CHAN attempted to brake before the crash.
Ms. CHAN was released on $20,000 bail yesterday after a court hearing attended by a U.S. consular official. She was also required to surrender her passport for fear she could flee to her native China, according to Sgt. Woolley.
"This is tragic, tragic," said Constable Dave WOODFORD of the Ontario Provincial Police.
The Lexus in which Ms. CHAN, her parents and a sister were travelling plowed into the back of the Subaru on Highway 401 just west of Warden Avenue. All three of Ms. CHAN's relatives were asleep at the moment of impact, investigators found, and witness accounts suggest the Lexus was travelling at between 100 and 120 kilometres an hour and weaving as it sped west.
Constable WOODFORD suggested, "it may be that because the three other occupants in the vehicle were sleeping at the time, [Ms. CHAN], with nobody to talk to, could have dozed off."
Killed instantly as the result of a broken neck was the Subaru's lone occupant, a 71-year-old Mississauga resident whose name was withheld.
Ms. CHAN's father, 51, riding in the back seat of the Lexus without a seat belt, later died of head and internal injuries.
Ms. CHAN, her mother and her sister were all treated for minor injuries at Toronto's Sunnybrook Hospital, after which she was arrested and charged.
She had no alcohol or drugs in her system, post-crash tests showed.
The CHAN family had been visiting Canada for a short sight-seeing vacation, Constable WOODFORD said.
From Montreal, they took the five-hour drive to Toronto, where they planned a brief stay before heading for Niagara Falls. Their immediate plans were to visit the CN Tower.
The trip was also a reunion. Ms. CHAN's parents and sister are from Florida, while she lives in the Flushing neighbourhood of Queens, N.Y.
Why the Subaru had stopped is unclear. The roads were bare and traffic not particularly heavy.
But the fact that the driver was parked on the left-hand median of the westbound lane - adjoining the fast lane - and not on the right side suggests mechanical difficulties, Constable WOODFORD said.
Whatever the problem, the car was well off the highway, its four-way hazard lights were flashing and the driver was strapped in when the CHAN family's Lexus smashed into its rear at around 12: 45 p.m.
"He was doing everything we tell people to do," Constable WOODFORD said.
"He was belted in his car, but when someone's doing 110 and they hit you from the rear, what happens is the airbag's not going to go off."
Instead a type of whiplash took place, with the driver jolted forward and then backward, with such force that his seat was loosened from its moorings.
Autopsies on the two victims were under way.
Driver fatigue causing death or injury is more common than sometimes realized, said Constable WOODFORD, a traffic veteran who has encountered many such instances in the often-hectic summertime commute to and from cottage country.
Separately but also on Hwy. 401, two people were charged with impaired driving Sunday night in a pair of collisions.
When emergency crews were called to a spot near Renforth Drive for a car accident, one of the drivers was found to have fled the scene. Police pursued a suspect, caught him and charged him with impaired driving.
But as firefighters were attending the accident scene, another car crashed into their fire truck.
That driver was charged with impaired driving. He also sustained serious injuries.
"We've got two separate collisions here in the span of a half an hour involving alcohol," Constable WOODFORD said.
"There's far too many people dying on the highways. Enough is enough."
