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.

MARTENS, Margaret Louise Eleanor (née HOUSTON)
Of Regina
With great sadness, the family wishes to announce the passing of Louise, dear mother and grandmother on Sunday January 6, 2008 at the age of 92 years, with her grand_son at her side, after a brief illness and her half-century-long battle with osteo-arthritis. Her memory will linger in our hearts forever. Louise was predeceased by her husband Ernest Allen MARTENS in 1953 (b. family homestead, Main Center, Saskatchewan,) her parents, Kate Matilda GARDINER in 1960 (b. family farm, Westbrook, Ontario) and Arthur Russell HOUSTON in 1966 (b., family homestead, Starbuck, Manitoba,) her maternal grandparents, Charlotte Eleanor LEONARD in 1916 (b. Westbrook, Ontario) and Jacob James GARDINER in 1923 (b. family homestead, Westbrook, Ontario,) her paternal grandparents, Margaret McBURNEY in 1943 (b. Beverly, Ontario) and Robert HOUSTON, Sr. in 1934 (b. Lesmahagow, Scotland). A true Canadian with deep roots here, Louise is a descendant of a family (Leonard/Chilton) who came to North America in 1620 on the Mayflower, and she is also a descendant of another family (McDonell) of United Empire Loyalists. She is survived by her sons Geoffrey of Westport, Ontario, and James (Lorena May BLONDIN) of Regina, and her grandchildren, Robert and Miranda. Louise was the daughter of a Canadian Pacific Railway station-agent and was born in the station-house in Perdue, Saskatchewan, in 1915. Her early schooling was there, and her piano-lessons only a short ride away over the rails to Saskatoon where she subsequently attended the University of Saskatchewan (Home Economics), and later on, business school in London, Ontario. With a young family to support, Louise returned to work (Government of Saskatchewan), finally retiring in 1982. Where did the time go? She will be remembered for her independence and her dedication and generosity to her family, Friends and co-workers. She loved Rachmaninoff; but despised country-music. She was her own woman to the end. A memorial service will be held at Speers Funeral Chapel, 2136 College Avenue, Regina, Saturday, January 12, 2008 at 1: 30 p.m.; coffee and tea to follow at the Family Centre.

BURGESS, Reverend Harold N., B.A., B.Div. (1915-2008)
It is with great sadness that we announce the passing on July 20, in hospital, of a very special man who met all of life's challenges in a positive way. He was a caring husband, father and grandfather who gave generously of his time and energy. In his ministry, he contributed greatly to society as he counselled, encouraged and comforted his parishioners. Harold played a pivotal role in the establishment of blood donor clinics in Ontario in the early '50s. He quickly became a regular blood donor himself and encouraged others to donate too. He was a pioneer in religious radio and television. In later years, he served on the religious advisory board at CTV. He will join his beloved wife of 61 years, V. Gwendolyn (2003, née BECKEL) and leaves behind his loving daughters, Joan VAN HOUTEN and Elizabeth SCHUERMANN and her husband John. Harold was a proud and cherished Grandpa to Kirsten VAN HOUTEN and Kristofor SCHUERMANN and his wife Elaine. He leaves his brothers Gordon (Laurel) and Doug. He is predeceased by his sister Kathryn. Harold was born in Giles, Ontario. He served the United Church for 44 years, with charges in Cressy, Oak Lake (Man.), Thomasburg, Athens (Ont.), Cornwall, Toronto and Etobicoke. Harold had a great wit and sense of humour. He spent many happy hours on curling rinks and golf courses. He thoroughly enjoyed performing marriage ceremonies and did so until the age of 92, first in his churches and then in the chapel at Mississauga City Hall. Harold was an avid reader, preferring a good mystery above all else. He will be greatly missed. Friends may call at the Turner and Porter 'Peel' Chapel 2, 180 Hurontario Street, Mississauga (Hwy 10 North of Queen Elizabeth Way) from 12 noon until the time of the service at 1 o'clock on Friday July 25, 2008. For those who wish donations may be made to Doctors Without Borders (MSF) Canada #402 - 720 Spadina Avenue, Toronto, Ontario M5S 2T9.
