Stray bullet kills Toronto man
By Omar EL AKKAD with a report from JENNIFER Lewington, Page A1
John O'KEEFE just happened to be walking down Toronto's busiest street on a Saturday night. That's all it took to cost him his life.
The 42-year-old Toronto resident and health-food store manager became the city's second homicide victim of 2008 when he was killed over the weekend. Mr. O'KEEFE, an avid environmentalist and father of a nine-year-old boy, was hit in the head by a single bullet that police believe was never meant for him. Two men now face first-degree murder charges in connection to the killing.
"The deceased was struck while he was basically just walking down the street," said Toronto police homicide detective Graham GIBSON. "He was just walking."
At around 1: 15 a.m. on Saturday, police were called to the Brass Rail Tavern, a strip club at 701 Yonge Street, just south of Bloor Street. Two men had just been kicked out of the club after acting up. After being booted from the tavern, both men began walking away, but only got a few metres before turning around.
"They did leave, but they didn't go far," said Det. GIBSON. " They took exception with security [at the Brass Rail]."
Upon returning, one of the two men allegedly pulled out a handgun and fired a single shot. Last night, police said the gun was registered to one of the suspects. Police believe it was aimed at members of the security staff outside the club.
Instead, it hit Mr. O'KEEFE in the head. The victim was pronounced dead at the scene.
Mr. O'KEEFE's partner described him yesterday as a wonderful human being who loved the environment.
"Johnny was a great guy; he really was," said Susan BANAHAN. "He loved to recycle - you couldn't throw a tissue in the garbage when he was around."
Mr. O'KEEFE had a nine-year-old son from a previous relationship. Together with Ms. BANAHAN and her child, they formed a family.
Ms. BANAHAN said Mr. O'KEEFE worked as a health-food store manager at the downtown Exchange Tower. In his spare time, she said, he liked to walk around the city - the Don Valley was one of his favourite spots.
At the time of his shooting, Mr. O'KEEFE was likely walking to the subway from the Duke of Gloucester, his favourite watering hole, Ms. BANAHAN said. Like the Brass Rail, the bar is located near the corner of Yonge and Bloor.
After the shooting, both suspects allegedly ran away, heading south on Yonge Street for a few metres before turning onto Charles Street.
But within 12 hours, police had two men in custody.
"We had excellent witnesses: and support from civilians and community members and people inside [the club]," Det. GIBSON said. As a result, police had the first suspect in custody by 11: 45 Saturday morning, and the second suspect a couple of hours later. Edward PAREDES, 22, and Awet ZEKARIAS, 23, both Toronto residents, are jointly charged with first-degree murder and attempted murder. They made their first court appearance yesterday morning at Old City Hall.
Saturday's killing bore eerie similarities to another shooting that rocked Toronto in December of 2005. Mr. O'KEEFE was killed just a few blocks north of where a brazen shootout claimed the life of 15-year-old Jane CREBA. Both victims were never the intended targets of the bullets that hit them, yet both were the only ones to die in each incident.
Ms. BANAHAN was devastated by the news of her partner's death - she spoke to a reporter yesterday just as news of Mr. O'KEEFE's killing played out on her television set at home.
"I'm just so sad that he won't be around any more," she said.
Last night, two of his best Friends, in shock over the fluke of their friend being in the wrong place at the wrong time, remembered him as a gentle, funny man, "brilliant at darts" and devoted to his young son and network of Friends.
"As a father, he showed his son Toronto's every ravine and heritage building," recalls Andrea ASTER, a friend for the past 20 years. "He was an ardent environmentalist whose only wish was that his son would grow up to be an environmental warrior."
She said that Mr. O'KEEFE, a 6-foot-2-inch man with "piercing blue eyes," had a way of making and keeping Friends.
"The people who were his Friends were his Friends for life," she said.
Another long-time friend, Brian EATON, 43, met Mr. O'KEEFE when they attended the same Scarborough high school. Mr. EATON said his younger brother, Tony, 42, who was in the same high-school class as Mr. O'KEEFE and remained close Friends, had invited him to the family cottage in Huntsville this past weekend. But Mr. O'KEEFE declined so that he could go skating with his son.
"I wish he had gone to the cottage," said Mr. EATON.
For the past 15 years, he said Mr. O'KEEFE was a weekly regular at the Duke of Gloucester pub, where he played darts.
"When I heard of the shooting I thought to myself I hope that was not Johnny because he was my one friend who might be walking down Yonge Street because he goes to the Duke," said Mr. EATON, adding that his friend's violent end was the opposite of how he lived.
"He wouldn't know anyone who has a gun or practices violence," said Mr. EATON.
"He was a responsible father, a responsible friend, the kind of guy that everyone loved and every kind word you would think of, you would apply to him."
Meanwhile, police are looking for witnesses: to a shooting Saturday night at Rosemary Lane in the Forest Hill neighbourhood. An unidentified man in his 20s suffered serious injury when he was shot once in the stomach near Bathurst Street and Eglinton Avenue, but is recovering in hospital, Toronto Police said yesterday.

LEWIS, Linda Diane (née HAGGANS)
Suddenly, as a result of a household fall with complications, on January 14, 2008 at age 67. Dearly beloved wife of Douglas Grinslade LEWIS of Orillia. Mother of Justin (Larissa) of Sydney, Australia; Matthew (Lorraine) of Oakville; Gillian (Danny) EATON of Vasey; Susan (Shawn) McGRAW of Orillia; mother of recently deceased Penelope Diana McKENZIE (Perrie) and Claire Louise and Graydon predeceased. Grandmother of Sydney and Meagan LEWIS, Zachary and Mickayla EATON, Gabriel Vasilaros LEWIS, and Dexter McGRAW. Sister-in-law of Diane (Herb) LETSCHE, Claire (David) VAN LOON, and Elaine (Meldon) SCHNIEDER/SNIDER/SNYDER. Loving aunt to many nieces and nephews. Linda was the rock of the LEWIS family and we will all miss her. She supported and raised the family and then watched over us as she went about her remarkable careers. As well as acting as wife and mother she made a contribution in two careers, as a public health nurse and a lawyer. Once she had raised the family she entered law school at age 51 and was called to the bar in 1994. She was probably the most active legal aid lawyer in Orillia or Simcoe County as she had the ability to empathize with her clients as a result of her public health career. Her client's cause became her cause. At the same time she continued to volunteer in such varied fields as Quota, the Murf Committee, Orillia Association for Community Living and the Soldiers' Memorial Hospital Board of Directors. Her husband Doug revered her as his wife, best friend, interested critic and always best supporter. She will be missed by all she touched. The late Linda Diane LEWIS will rest at the Mundell Funeral Home, 79 West Street North, Orillia, with visitations on Wednesday 7 to 9 p.m., Thursday 2 to 4 pm.. and 7 to 9 p.m. Then to Saint Paul's United Church, 62 Peter Street North, Orillia, for a funeral service at 2: 00 p.m. on Friday, January 18th, 2008. Private Interment at St. Andrew's - Saint_James' Cemetery, Orillia. If desired, memorial donations to Soldiers' Memorial Hospital Foundation would be gratefully appreciated. Messages of condolences are welcome at www.mundellfuneralhome.ca.

DEMONT, Eric Gordon, Q.C.
80. Died in his sleep at his winter retreat in Hilton head Island Thursday, March 6, 2008. Born August 29th, 1927 in Glace Bay, Nova Scotia, he was the second of three boys born to Clarence and Mabel (née MacKEIGAN) DEMONT.
Eric is survived by his wife of 51 years, Patricia (née ROWE) and his three children, Christy (Toronto,) Frank (Robyn EATON) (New Glasgow) and Richard (Montreal) and his two beloved grandchildren, Isobel Ruth and Campbell Eric, along with his brothers Earl (Rea) of Glace Bay and Russ (Joan) of Halifax.
Eric graduated from Glace Bay's Central High School and from Acadia University, where he lettered in Rugby and Basketball and had great success in track and field. He then attended Dalhousie Law School (Class of 1956). It was during his days at Law School that Eric was introduced by brother Earl to Pat, a teacher and also a basketball player, who would become his bride the day after his graduation. During his articles, she supported him, and kept on doing so for the next 51 years. She taught him how to drive and how to be social at parties, with varying degrees of success.
Eric was a member of the Nova Scotia and Ontario Bars and practiced law with Rutledge MacKeigan in Halifax before moving to Toronto where he became Regional Counsel for CP Rail. In 1978 Eric left CP and his office on Front Street in Toronto for an office on Main Street in Wolfville, Nova Scotia where he worked until retirement in 2000. He traded his Central "Y" membership in for a "gym pass" at Acadia where he played basketball with the noontime crowd until well into his 60's. A long time member of the Rotary Club of Wolfville, Eric was a Paul Harris Fellow and a past-president of the Club. He left the Club, and Wolfville, in 2005 to relocate with Pat to Halifax.
Eric was known to his Friends and family as the quintessential arbiter of fairness. He would enjoy knowing that his children think of him as the ultimate reasonable man - as he would have it, the man on the Clapham Omnibus. (Although if one ever attributed that to him, he might give a brief dissertation on the test as set out in Hall v. Brooklands Auto-Racing Club.).
He was a keen swimmer and his favourite place to be was the "Bonavista Cottage", the family vacation home at Melmerby Beach. Exiting the sometimes frigid waters of the Northumberland Strait, he always had the same refrain, "the water is great!". At 80, he was still improving his tennis game, reading the latest magazines on how to hit the topspin backhand that continued to elude him. A lifetime non-drinker and non-smoker, he was the self-proclaimed coffee connoisseur of the family, and his ongoing quest to brew the perfect cup was well-known to all his Friends.
His interests were wide and varied and included his painting and photography alongside his computer and web surfing. As a fan of Charlie Rose, he was obviously a night owl. An aficionado of the movies, Bob Newhart, and the Marx Brothers, Eric was always ready to laugh, and to make others laugh too. He was an avid cruciverbalist and enjoyed working away at the New York Times Sunday crossword puzzle each week.
A life long sports fan, he was delighted to watch his grandchildren play hockey, but didn't mind that the basketball games provided considerably warmer places to sit.
Eric will be remembered for the funny stories about "back in the day" playing "foot-n-a-half" and chewing tar! With prosperity as a lawyer, he traded in the tar for the more acceptable black licorice. Eric has gone back to his personal "Mira" where he enjoyed his youthful summers in the 1930's and early 40's.
Eric's legacy of fairness and laughter lives on in his children and grandchildren. He will be remembered at a memorial service at a later date. Eric would want all to remember the words of Groucho Marx, "time flies like an arrow; fruit flies like a banana!".
Memorial donations can be made to The Coady International Institute, at St. Francis Xavier University, (902 867-5264, www.coady.stfx.ca).
Condolences can be sent to Pat and the Family at file@ca.ns.sympatico.ca.
