Woman's actions save boy in crash
By John MINER, Mon., June 2, 2008
Seaforth -- In the last few seconds of her life, Ronalee ALLEN did what she had spent a lifetime doing -- trying to save a child.
ALLEN was killed Friday on Highway 4 in a crash with a truck north of Hensall.
Her family said they've been told by police she tried to avoid the truck, but was trapped by a guard rail. Still, her move to hit the guard rail kept her minivan from crashing into the truck full on, saving her one-year-old passenger from being killed with her.
"If they had hit head-on, the baby wouldn't have made it," said Ronalee's mother, Lorraine SAINT_JOHN.
The child remained in critical, but stable condition in a medically induced coma at London Health Sciences Centre yesterday.
Police have charged the driver of the truck with careless driving.
The day of the tragedy had started as one of jubilation for ALLEN.
Her eldest daughter, Breezey, had received a call from her mother with the news that the family would be able to adopt the child they had been caring for since September -- the child who was injured in Friday's fatal crash.
Ronalee, 42, then drove from their home in Seaforth to Exeter to tell her husband, Shawn, vice-principal at Exeter public school.
It was on the way home from delivering the news that ALLEN was killed.
"She always said she wanted to die fast and for a purpose and she did," said Breezey, 20.
Sitting around their kitchen table in Seaforth yesterday, her husband and four children emotionally remembered the mother who had taken in more than 150 kids -- many of them as foster kids and others who needed temporary shelter -- and rushed to help other people.
"She would say, 'If we don't do it, who will?' She lived her faith," said Shawn.
"Each child that moved into our house was not considered a visitor, not considered a guest or a foster child. They were considered part of our family."
She wasn't satisfied with helping only the people she could directly reach. The fridge in their home is still covered with the faces of children she had sponsored in foreign countries.
"It wasn't a tithe or an obligation -- she genuinely cared about them," said her son, Josiah, 17.
Word of ALLEN's death prompted dozens of tributes on the social networking website Facebook, with many remembering the direct woman with a big heart.
"She was in a lot of people's lives whether you liked it or not," said her mother.
Breezey said while "People always say that someone comes in and out of your life and you forget them… you can't forget my mom because she kind of hits you like a train. She is a very blunt person."
Ronalee is also survived by son Makaylie, 15, and daughter, Olivia, Shawn said it took him years to appreciate his wife's special sense for helping people.
"It's like in hockey where there are fabulous players who can go into the game, survey the situation, understand the whole setup and flow and go and get a goal.
"She could see a person, a situation and know exactly what the future could be. She would go in and work on making the preferred future happen," he said.
She also had an infectious sense of humour that drew people to her, both young and old, her family said. Her campfire at Fair Havens Christian campground near Orillia, where she worked summers, was always a popular spot.
"All of my Friends would go there and they would be hanging out with my mom," said Breezey.
The family has rented the Seaforth Community Centre for a memorial service Wednesday at 2 p.m. People are advised not to wear formal attire, but to be in their pyjamas, something ALLEN wore everywhere, including when she dropped her kids off at school.
That's what their mother wanted -- she warned them she'd haunt them if they attended her funeral in black, her children said.
Shawn said his wife of 18 years wasn't a soft-spoken women.
"You knew how she felt, you knew what she thought. Everything she did was from the heart, making things right."

BILLES, Alfred Robert George
(November 21, 1959-June 1, 2008)
After collapsing suddenly at his cottage in Minden, Alfred died peacefully at the Southlake Health Centre in Newmarket with his wife and best friend by his side. Loving, passionate husband to Susan, devoted father to Eliza, Stephanie, A.J. and Nicole, cherished son of Barbara and the late Fred BILLES, responsible older brother to Heather, Deirdre (Chris), Maeve (Greg) and Garth. Best buddy to Layne MINGIE. Friend to many. Alfred believed life was a joyous adventure to be lived fully with love and laughter. He grew up in Toronto and spent a happy childhood in the Bayview Yorkmills neighbourhood playing with Friends and embarking on adventures in Wilket Creek. Alfred attended Crescent school from grade 2 to 12 where he formed some of his closest Friendships. He spent his last year of high school at the Canadian Junior College in Lausanne where he fell madly in love with Susan ELLIOT/ELLIOTT. Alfred and Susan married 2 years later. Alfred lived life fast and fully. While in his 20's he proudly became the father of four beautiful children. After graduating from the University of Waterloo, Alfred worked with his father at the Canadian Tire store at Yonge and Davenport for 7½ years. In the early 90's he ran the Hardie Corporation. For the past 13 years he and Susan have owned and operated the Once Upon a Child Store on Bayview, building it into one of the most successful stores in the chain. Alfred was a large, loud, gentle man, full of exuberance for life. He loved rock and roll, cars and boats, his dogs James and Dakota and diet coke with lime. He especially enjoyed playing backgammon and cards, (gin and hearts) and long, hard fought battles of Risk. Most of all, Alfred loved people. He never put off spending time with those he loved. He was a happy, positive person who saw good all around him. He considered himself a very lucky man and smiled and laughed almost every day of his life. He will be sadly missed by all whose lives he touched. A special thanks to the wonderful people at Southlake, especially nurses Matt and Steve on the 5th floor and social workers Pat EDWARDS and Pat MILLER. Visitation will be held at the Jerrett Funeral Home, 6191 Yonge Street (2 lights south of Steeles), Toronto on Wednesday June 4th from 2-4 p.m. and 7-9 p.m. Friends please join us in a celebration of Alfred's life on Thursday, June 5 at 11 a.m. at the Jerrett Funeral Home Chapel.

Three Friends who perished in watery crash were ‘full of life'
By Anthony REINHART and Sarah BOESVELD and Matthew CAMPBELL, Page A1
Minett, Ontario, Toronto -- Peninsula Road is worth taking slowly, if only for the postcard-pretty views of the Joe River, as the locals call it.
On Friday, where the road curves before crossing the river, cottage-bound travellers slowed to take in a starkly different sight: 20 metres of metal guardrail ripped from the ground, a pine tree shorn at a point as high as a basketball hoop, and various bits of the Audi S4 that literally flew through here and into the river on Thursday evening, killing three young men inside.
A fourth occupant, a young woman, survived somehow.
Ontario Provincial Police identified the dead as Tyler MULCAHY and Cory MINTZ, both 20 and from Toronto, and Kourosh TOTONCHIAN, 19, of North York.
The Audi belonged to Mr. MINTZ, but Mr. MULCAHY was driving when the car crashed into the lake.
Friends and family said Friday that the young men were “full of life” and loved to have a good time up at the cottage while on a break from their university studies.
Mr. TOTONCHIAN's father, Ali, said Friday that his son was “a great boy” who was finishing his second year of business at the University of British Columbia, and had dreams of becoming a lawyer.
“He was a people person. He could always charm his way through anything, ” Mr. TOTONCHIAN said.
Ryan SILVERSTEIN, who had known Mr. MINTZ for seven years, said the young man was starting an acting career and was seeking an agent. He had finished his first year at the University of Western Ontario in London and was living in his mother's boyfriend's cottage on Peninsula Road during the summer while running his own boat-detailing business.
“He wasn't just a best friend, he was my brother, ” he said of Mr. MINTZ. “He was a hipster guy, liked to party, wore tight jeans, listened to cool music.&rdquo
A family member said the group was driving home from Cory MINTZ's cottage at the time of the accident.
Mr. MULCAHY attended Upper Canada College and had completed his third year at the University of San Diego. Friend Andrew REBURN described him as “fun guy to be around. He had a great sense of humour and always seemed to be happy.&rdquo
Nastasia ELZINGA, 19, of Toronto escaped the wreckage and was taken to South Muskoka Memorial Hospital in Bracebridge, where she was treated for minor injuries and released. Friends say she attends McGill University in Montreal and is “athletic and very bright.&rdquo
“I don't know how she walked away, ” Ontario Provincial Police Constable Skeeter KRUGER said of the 7 p.m. accident, “but she said her Friends were still in the car” as the first of many emergency workers arrived.
The car came to rest on the rocky river bottom with its passenger side down and the badly damaged driver's side protruding less than 30 centimetres from the water, Constable KRUGER said.
Police, local volunteer firefighters and bystanders scrambled down an embankment of granite boulders and waded into 1.5 metres of water to retrieve the young men. They tried to resuscitate them, but to no avail, Constable KRUGER said.
The wrecked car, leaking fuel, was pulled from the river afterward.
On Friday, driver after driver pulled over, some with bouquets and all with sober expressions, off the winding road, which has a posted speed limit of 80 km/h.
Ontario Provincial Police traffic investigators were not ready to discuss the speed of the Audi or who was driving, but it was clear that the car left the road at substantial speed, given the length of ripped-out guardrail, the tree broken four metres above ground, the strewn debris and a set of curving skid marks that indicated a failed attempt to cling to the yellow centre line.
Herwig SCHROTH, 71, a resident of nearby Port Carling, said that every summer he sees vacationers in high-performance cars, speeding. Last year's example, which he witnessed near Bala, involved “two cars racing at at least 150 km/h; one a Corvette, one a BMW. They were just chasing each other, ” Mr. SCHROTH said at the roadside, where a pine scent wafted from the snapped tree.
“It's the kind of thing that happens every year, ” said Alf MORTIMER, 84, a lifelong Muskokan who owns the marina in Port Sandfield, a few kilometres south of the crash site. “But this is a bad accident.&rdquo
Beyond the obvious loss to the young men's families and Friends, Constable KRUGER said, the deaths unnerved colleagues. The Bracebridge Ontario Provincial Police detachment has now seen six deaths in four incidents in recent weeks -- three on the roads and one, last weekend, on the water.
“Having to do [death] notifications is one of the worst jobs we have to do, ” he said. “There isn't one person who goes home at the end of the day and doesn't take a piece of this with them.&rdquo
Autopsies were scheduled for today; subsequent toxicology tests will determine whether alcohol played a role.
In the meantime, Constable KRUGER said, “there has to be higher respect for our roads and our waterways across the province. We continue to educate people about making good driving decisions, and it would be great if some of those messages would get through to people.&rdquo

'I just want my big brother back'
Mourners say goodbye in funeral for third crash victim in tragic Muskoka accident
By Sarah BOESVELD, Page A10
Nastasia ELZINGA laid both hands flat on the wooden casket decked with white and pink lilies yesterday as she gave her final goodbye to boyfriend Tyler MULCAHY.
As she leaned over the casket, she wasn't crying, but smiling, perhaps because so many loved ones gathered to honour Mr. MULCAHY, who died in a horrific car crash in Muskoka along with two other Friends last Thursday.
Ms. ELZINGA was also in the car and survived.
Hundreds gathered to pay tribute to Mr. MULCAHY at Grace Church on-the-Hill yesterday afternoon. Before a crowd of people crammed in the pews and lining the walls, the 20-year-old was described by his Friends as an anchor, by his sisters as a protector, and by his father as a reason for living.
"Tyler is the reason we hurt so much," said his father, Tim MULCAHY. "We hurt because he loved us and we loved him."
Mr. MULCAHY motioned toward the pews where Alan MINTZ and Ali TOTONCHIAN, fathers of Cory MINTZ, 20, and Kourosh TOTONCHIAN, 19, who also perished in the crash, were sitting. He thanked them for their support and for phoning to console him after the tragedy.
"Alan MINTZ said we were in a club. When I reflected upon the club, I realized it was the most expensive club in the world, but one nobody wanted to join," he said.
Mr. MULCAHY recollected the early-morning phone call to his hotel room last Thursday in Italy, where he was on vacation. It was the police reporting the unthinkable. He returned to Canada and the scene of the crash on Peninsula Road in Muskoka, where the Audi his son was driving missed a turn and crash-landed into Lake Joseph.
Yesterday, the Ontario Provincial Police confirmed that speed and alcohol were factors in the fatal collision. Autopsy reports confirmed the young men drowned. All were wearing seatbelts, police said. Ms. ELZINGA wrestled her way out of the car and made it to shore.
Tyler MULCAHY's younger sister, Chanel, recalled her brother's merciless teasing, but also how he was always there for her. She said he revelled in the time they spent together and he would never pick up his cellphone if it rang during one of their weekly lunches.
"Tyler was so brilliant, I don't know why he got into that car," she said. "I just want my big brother back."
Shaya MULCAHY highlighted four things she remembers about her brother: the hoodies he wore, his basketball talent, the flamboyant hats he sometimes modelled for laughs, and the joy he brought to so many.
"Without a doubt, Tyler was the happiest person I've ever known," she said. "Tyler knew how to live life."
Mourners wore round white buttons handed out before the service that read "Tyler MULCAHY 1988-Forever" and pictured a blue Converse shoe with Cory and Kourosh's names etched into the sole.
Friends said Mr. MULCAHY was a teacher, a rock and someone who excelled at everything he put his mind to, especially sports and his studies.
Lorne GREENBERG remembered Mr. MULCAHY's ability to make Friends with virtually anyone. He recalls walking in Yorkville with Mr. MULCAHY and hearing voices behind them yelling "Tyler, Tyler, Tyler!"
"Sure enough, two homeless guys come running toward us," he said. "Tyler didn't care about who you were Friends with. Tyler just cared about who you were, and that's something very rare and very special."
Choral music and the scent of lilies wafted through the church full of tearful people young and old. Mourners sang the traditional Upper Canada College hymn, Praise, My Soul, the King of Heaven, after tributes were given to the young man, who attended the prestigious school before spending a year studying arts at the University of San Diego.
