COSTA o@ca.on.middlesex_county.london.london_free_press 2008-07-03 published
Friends until the end
By Joe BELANGER, Fri., July 4, 2008
Strathroy -- Dan MEDEIROS and Jon DESA did almost everything together, including graduating from high school last week.
Now, tragically, the two 17-year-olds -- best Friends -- will be buried on the same day.
Their joint funeral tomorrow will bring together family and Friends of the Strathroy teens killed in a two-car crash Wednesday night that sent two other people to hospital, including their 18-year-old pal Brian COSTA, who was driving the car in which the two youths died.
"They were just awesome young adults," said principal Dan HOWARD of Holy Cross Catholic secondary school, where a memorial service is scheduled today at 11 a.m. "Last week, I gave both of them their diplomas," HOWARD said. "This is a very good community and they were part of it."
Shock and sadness ripped through the heart of the tight-knit town of 12,000, as news of the tragedy spread.
The young men were killed instantly in a two-car crash on Hickory Drive near McEvoy Road about 10: 30 p.m.
COSTA, also of Strathroy, was in serious but stable condition at London Health Sciences Centre.
The other car driver, a woman whose name wasn't released, was taken to Strathroy Middlesex General Hospital and kept for observation. The cause of the crash is still under investigation, but Strathroy-Caradoc police said alcohol was not a factor.
It was raining heavily at the time, police said, when the east-bound COSTA car went out of control near a curve and collided with the other car, which was travelling west.
"You couldn't ask for two better guys," said Brad LALICH, who went to school with MEDEIROS and DESA and worked with MEDEIROS at a construction recycling company.
He described both his Friends as "very hard-working guys" who had after-school and summer jobs.
"Both were happy, happy guys," said LALICH. " Dan was always smiling, and if you ever needed to be picked up because you were having a bad day, Dan could do it."
Earlier, the three Friends had been at the home of Jonathan MONIZ, 15, and were on their way home when the crash occurred. "They were great guys -- amazing guys -- who lived life to the fullest," said a saddened MONIZ, 15.
HOWARD said counsellors were to be at the school today at 9 a.m. to help any students or staff.
"I can't say enough about those boys," he said. "They contributed to the school and the community. This is a very close community and everyone knows everyone and everyone knew these boys. They will be missed very much."
Teacher and athletics director Pat Moran, who taught both students in Grades 9 and 10, said they loved soccer and shop classes, such is auto mechanics and construction.
"It's a big shock to this community," said MORAN. " They got along with everybody."
DESA is survived by his parents, John and Lisa, and two sisters, Monique and Mackenzie.
MEDEIROS is survived by his parents, John and Darlene, and sister Amanda.
Visitation is at Denning Brothers Funeral Home, 32 Metcalfe St. W., today from 5 p.m. to 9 p.m., with a funeral tomorrow at All Saints Roman Catholic Church, 124 Front St. E., in Strathroy at 11 a.m.

GREGOR, Tibor Philip
Tibor Philip GREGOR, industry executive, passionate Rotarian, keen tennis player and a veteran of World War 2 service as a Czechoslovak in the allied forces attached to the British army, died at his home on Saturday, February 2nd, 2008. He was 88 years old. A proud Canadian by choice and a Torontonian for over half a century, Tibor was an irrepressible optimist. He was a bright, garrulous -- and willing -- public speaker who addressed countless groups around Canada and the world in multiple languages on subjects ranging from Haiti's water needs to the particulars of the soft drink industry, whose association he directed for 16 years after a career in the office equipment and sand and gravel businesses. Tibor's firm belief in community service, bolstered by help he, a penniless refugee, received from a Rotary Club in the London suburb of Watford, led him to join the Rotary Club of Millom, Cumberland in 1949. Over the next six decades he served as president of the Toronto Eglinton Rotary Club, a District Governor, a Director and Treasurer of Rotary International, and Trustee of the Rotary Foundation. He travelled the globe representing numerous presidents of Rotary International, and he proudly celebrated 50 years of perfect attendance at weekly Rotary meetings. Tibor also served in leadership positions at the Metro Toronto and Canadian Associations for the Mentally Retarded, was founding president of the Friends of the Royal Canadian Academy of Arts, a member of the City of Toronto Citizens Centenary Committee. He participated actively in the life of the Ionic Lodge, the Royal Canadian Military Institute and the Czech Legion in Canada. At home, Tibor was a fierce and able tennis player. (He played his final match last October at the Toronto Lawn Tennis Club, where he was a member for half a century.) He bolstered the growth of Toronto's art community in kinship with his beloved Helen, an internationally-known tapestry designer and the mother of their two children, Jan and Anne. After Helen's death in 1989, Tibor married Val COSTA, a dear friend and companion, who predeceased him. Tibor was seen constantly among Friends, emitting clouds of smoke from the pipes that were as much a part of Tibor as his blue eyes and wide smile topped by a narrow, bushy moustache. Against considerable evidence to the contrary, Tibor was convinced of the charm of his ubiquitous clouds of smoke. It kept pipe smokers 'calm, cool and collected,' he used to say as he railed about the growing opposition to smoking. This was the public Tibor. Close Friends and family will remember him as a loving and witty man, a tender father and companion, someone who spoke proudly of his worldwide circle of Friends from all generations. He communicated in the old style. Tibor was a prolific correspondent, a fast typist of thousands of missives. His recollection of high-school Latin was formidable, with Cicero and Cato close at hand for discussions. Tibor Philip GREGOR was born April 25th, 1919 in Levoca, a medieval town that looks up to the Tatra Mountains of Slovakia. An outstanding student, he attended the London School of Economics, but war intervened. His extensive army service included a landing on Day 3 at the Normandy beaches, followed by the hard battles of the Allied march across Europe. His arrival as one of the first allied military at the Dachau concentration camp was an experience he spoke of only in his later years. After the war he and Helen emigrated to Canada to build a new life with their children. Tibor is survived by his loving son, Jan Michael, his daughter, Anne Helena, his granddaughter, Martha Alice Helen ROSE and son-in-law, Frederick Barker ROSE and the countless Friends who visited and called, sent cards, emails and letters during Tibor's short illness. A memorial service is scheduled for 2 p.m., Friday, February 8, at Rosedale United Church, 159 Roxborough Drive, Toronto with a reception to follow at the Toronto Lawn Tennis Club, 44 Price Street. In lieu of flowers, the family suggests donations in his name to endow Czech language and cultural studies at the University of Toronto. Cheques should be made out to the University of Toronto and sent to: Office of Advancement, Faculty of Arts and Science, 100 St. George Street, Suite 2032, Toronto, Ontario M5S 3G3 or contact Monica Lin tel. (416) 946-5616 or email mlin@artsci.utoronto.ca
