SMIRNOFF, Wladimir, 2000 -- Died This Day
Monday, November 7, 2005, Page S8
Biologist and forester born in Russia on September 1, 1917.
After graduating as a forestry engineer from the Forestry Institute of the former Soviet Union he went back to school in 1941 and earned his doctorate in biological control. During the Second World War he fled the Soviet Union and by 1947 he was in Morocco working on the biological control of an insect that attacked palm trees. In 1957, he came to Canada for a meeting sponsored by the federal Agriculture Department and decided to stay, joining the Laurentian Forestry Laboratory Centre at Laval University that same year. He is best known for adapting the Bacillus thuringiensis (Bt) formula for controlling the spruce budworm, a caterpillar that strips trees of their foliage. For years it was controlled with chemical insecticides that indiscriminately killed other forest creatures, particularly birds. Bt, on the other hand, affected only a particular group of caterpillars, Dr. Smirnoff argued, and once drank a glassful of the stuff before a group of scientists and forest managers. Later, he developed a weaker and safer formula. In his final years he researched the effects of vegetation on air quality. He told The Ottawa Citizen in 1994 that he believed natural tree extracts could purify the air in badly designed buildings that are "hermetically sealed. Vapours from Christmas trees may help fight tuberculosis, he added. He stressed, however, it could never be considered and outright cure. In 1997, he was invested as a member of the Order of Canada.

We know you're looking down on us,
From the heavens up above
Your arms are reaching out for us,
To offer us your love.
We'll keep you close within our hearts, Each day that we get through.
And we'll remember the years you gave,
And be thankful we had you.
We needn't let go of the people we love,
When the time comes for them to depart
If we know the secret of giving each one,
A new lifetime to live in the heart
In memory of a loving wife, mother and grandmother, Wallace, Muriel, Frances and Ted, Olivia, Jesse and Holly, Jo Ann, Jim & Rose, and Rebecca.

A Tribute To Marion
(written by one of Marion's special Friends)
Such a special friend is so hard to find, and we were so blessed to call you "mine".
You cherished your family with love and pride, and graciously took each day in stride.
Together with Bruce you shared a wonderful life, you each chose so well for a husband and wife.
Your children you cherished, your precious grandchildren as well, with each new arrival your heart would swell.
Your gardens, your flowers you tended with care, your gifts and your talents you would unselfishly share.
Your quiet little chuckle, your beautiful brown eyes, your welcoming home, your meals and your pies.
As a wife, a mother, a daughter, a sister, a grandma, an aunt, a niece or a friend, you loved each and everyone right to the end.
In cards we were told we didn't play our hands, so we laughed and we chuckled and tried a new plan.
But trying to play like the men soon went amuck, because they really never had a plan.. just plain old luck.
A campfire, a New Years eve party, a visit... whatever, we always had such a great time together
We will cherish always these wonderful things, especially now that you've been given your angel wings.
We know not what the Lord has in His plan, so we will carry on bravely and try to understand.
Your journey has been such an incredible one, but far too soon, that journey was done.
Your reward in Heaven will be great I know, for your faith and your courage you would always show.
Some days like these in life it seems the pleasures are few, but we only have to recall what a pleasure it was to have a friend like you!

Remember him with a smile today

Of many happy years.

The way he laughed
Remember these instead.

Police lay murder charge
Slashed tires and a broken window were found at the home of a slain woman.
By John HERBERT, Free Press Reporter
A young London woman is dead and a London man she knew has been charged with murder in the city's first homicide of the year. Police did not reveal the identity of the woman, who was found dead at 4: 15 a.m. yesterday at her home at 875 Thistledown Way, Unit 5.
But neighbours say the body was that of Laura WILSON, a woman in her early 20s who had recently left her boyfriend.
James William VANDERSANDEN, 23, of 485 Castlegrove Blvd., is charged with first-degree murder, break and enter, criminal harassment, mischief under $5,000 and assault with a weapon.
Police would not say what their relationship was but did confirm they knew each other.
"They had an association," said Det. Sgt. John PARE.
Police would not identify the woman until after an autopsy was completed.
"We spoke to her family, but we can't release the name. It's got to be done the proper way," PARÉ said.
Police would not say what weapon was used.
A shocked neighbour said Wilson lived alone in her mother's condo in the quiet, mostly-seniors Rembrandt Heights condominium complex, just west of the intersection of Wonderland and Sarnia roads.
WILSON had been living with a boyfriend, but recently returned to her mother's place, the neighbour said.
The condo is for sale and WILSON's mother and a younger sister had already moved out, the neighbour said.
WILSON was planning to live in the condo until it was sold, then move in with her mother, she said.
Police confirmed the dead woman was living alone.
But another woman was in the condo at the time of the attack, PARÉ said.
She suffered knife wounds and bleeding, fled the condo and called police from a neighbour's place, police said.
VANDERSANDEN was arrested about 5 a.m. after a short foot chase that ended near the London Aquatic Centre, in the backyard of a home on Blue Forest Place.
Yesterday morning, a silver Chrysler Sebring was parked in front of the condo, with three of its tires slashed.
A large front window near the entrance to the condo was smashed.
"I'm very shocked. She was a very nice woman," said neighbour Dave ROBERTS.
"I heard ambulances about 4: 30 in the morning, but I never heard any noise until then. I looked out the window and all the police were here."
"Nothing like this happens around here," added shocked neighbour Michael GIBBONS.
There were five homicides in London last year.
The most recent victim was William Gordon (Bill) SMITH, who was found face down in gravel outside his apartment at 206 Clarence St. near Simcoe Street November 16.

SMITH, Robert " Bob" J. E.
So peacefully in the loving arms of his cherished wife and best friend Rhea JOY, and surrounded by the love and support of family and Friends, Bob SMITH left us to embark on a new journey January 8th, 2005.
Missing him yet celebrating his ascension are many. His beloved Rhea and children Kerrie and Bepin ZEKA, Li and Dan PRESSEY and Scott & Gloria SMITH will continue to put into practice the lessons learned through his boundless unconditional love, guidance and mentorship. With his love in their hearts forever, his grandchildren, Sarah, Kevin, Niki and Caroline will hold close their memories of storytelling, long walks and conversations about nature, play times and endless snuggles. His sister Evelyn WATRAL will always cherish the strong Friendship that bound them and their families throughout the years and mutual support dating from rural Wardsville, Ontario to present day. He spent many of his most treasured times with his nieces and nephews, Susan and Steve SIZE, Carl and Laura WATRAL and Rob WATRAL. With years of fond memories they will continue to be mainstays of care and support which bind a family together. A large extended family of cousins, sisters and brothers in-law, nieces, nephews and their children can be assured that Uncle Bob cherished our reunions and revelled in watching the children (and adults) play while he caught up on everyone's latest news.
Amongst the many family and Friends welcoming Bob to heaven are his Mother and Father Margaret and Glenn SMITH, Mother and Father-in-law Caroline and Harold THOMPSON/THOMSON/TOMPSON/TOMSON and Brother in-law Walter (Pop) WATRAL. In addition to being a tireless advocate, volunteer, lay minister, faithful and enthusiastic supporter of his church and helper to anyone in the community in greater need than he, Bob was immensely proud of his career at the once Huron and Erie Trust Company, later to become Canada Trust. Starting as a bank teller, Bob rapidly rose through the ranks to become a most respected senior executive. After his “retirement” he utilized his accumulated professional experience to assist his niece Sue at Thorne Property Management Ltd. Following that he embarked upon a third career; that of caregiver, friend, music teacher and chauffeur to his grandchildren.
Special thanks to Dick and Kathy WARREN for their selfless contributions to our family's healing and Pastor Paul BROWNING for his visits and support. To our fellow campers at Sugarbush Campground, Bayfield, Ontario, our family extends our gratitude on behalf of Bob for the many years of friend-ship and fun. To his Trinity United Church family, it was important to Bob that you know how much he appreciated you and that he felt all of your prayers. The caring staff of the Oncology Unit, London Health Sciences Centre Westminster Campus 7th floor, Tower 2 has indelibly etched in our minds what giving is all about.
At his request cremation has taken place and a celebration of Bob's time here will be held at Trinity United Church, 76 Doulton Street (at Hale St.) in London, Ontario, on Saturday, January 15th at 1 p.m. with Pastor Paul BROWNING officiating. A reception will be held in the lower level of the church following the service, in the hope that family and Friends may gath-er for a time of fellowship and remem-brance. Robert James Emiel SMITH wishes that in lieu of flowers, donations in his memory be made to Trinity United Church. Arrangements entrusted to Needham Funeral Service, 520 Dundas Street London.

Our mother was a special gift
One we thought would always stay
We never thought the day would come
That she would have to go away.

When we were all together
But with the love within our hearts
You walk with us forever.
We still miss you. Your daughters Doreen and Stan, Mary and Alvin and their families.

Behind-the-scenes activist left legacy of advances
By Randy RICHMOND, Free Press Reporter
A cross-section of London's civic life -- politicians, bureaucrats, journalists and activists -- will crowd into a London bar tomorrow to celebrate the life of a longtime, behind-the-scenes mover and shaker. Mary ZELINSKI, who died January 31 at 58, was many things to many people.
To reporters, ZELINSKI was a sharp-eyed critic of local politics with great news tips and gossip.
To entrepreneurs and community groups, she was a valuable ally in the federal government.
To politicians, she could be either a pain in the butt or a best friend.
"She has done a lot of good for the community," although few ordinary Londoners know it, said longtime friend Terry FENN.
The two became Friends in the early 1970s when FENN was running for school board trustee.
He was on stage at an all-candidates meeting and ZELINSKI was a community activist in Northbrae.
"She proceeded to chew up a candidate pretty good. I was the next speaker and I was sweating bullets."
But FENN passed ZELINSKI's credibility test and the two became Friends.
The pair realized half the city was not represented on the school board in citywide elections and over the objections of many in the old guard, got the ward system in place.
ZELINSKI worked for the federal government's Community Futures program, helping community groups get funding for their projects.
"We were helping people get back to work. Mary was a great collaborator. She leveraged money with other partners, municipal governments and other federal departments, school boards," FENN said.
In the 1990s, ZELINSKI moved to Industry Canada, providing loans to new business projects, including Chatham-Kent's ethanol-from-corn plant.
"Middlesex County owes her so much," county chief administrative officer Bill RAYBURN said. "Yet probably very few people knew her name."
ZELINSKI approached RAYBURN on his first day on the job to say Middlesex wasn't getting its share of business loans.
"Mary was the kind of person when she recognized an injustice in the system, she would work with people to make amends."
ZELINSKI worked with everyone, regardless of political stripe, trading information with reporters and politicians alike, seeming to know exactly whom to contact to get things done, said friend Anne SMITH.
"She saw the big picture," FENN said. "If you wanted to do something that wasn't right, she wouldn't let you get away with it."
ZELINSKI's health suffered the past few years, but she remained a keen critic of city hall affairs, fighting most recently over London's loose heritage policies.
"She's up in heaven now, doing her knitting and shaking her head at all the politicians everywhere, RAYBURN said.
ZELINSKI leaves her husband, Peter, and son, John.
A memorial service will be held tomorrow at 3 p.m. at Chaucer's, 122 Carling St.

In loving memory of our father and grandfather, David Russell SMITH who passed away February 10th, 2004.
He knew that you were suffering,
He knew you were in pain,
He knew that you would never
Get well on earth again,
He saw the roads were getting rough
And the hills were hard to climb,
So He closed your weary eyelids,
And whispered "Peace be thine".
Loved and sadly missed, Barb, Scotty and your grandchildren.

Wishing you were here to share them with us.

The moment that you died
Our hearts were split in two
The one side filled with memories
The other died with you.
We think of you in silence
We always speak your name
For all we have is memories
And a picturein a frame.
We often lay awake at night
When the world is fast asleep
Remembering you is easy
We do it every day
But missing you is a heartache
That never goes away.
Gone but not forgotten. Always loved and sadly missed. Mom and Dad.

HARRIS built steel empire
Milton HARRIS, a London native, died after a battle with cancer. He was 77.
By Marissa NELSON, Free Press Reporter
From his father's London scrap metal business, he built an empire. Milton HARRIS, 77, died Saturday after a short battle with cancer.
The London native, who launched his business in 1954, was the founder, chairperson and chief executive officer of Harris Steel Group.
The Toronto-based steel maker -- the largest manufacturer of concrete reinforcing steel in North America -- has annual sales of more than $600 million
Ellis-Don Construction co-founder Don SMITH was the Harris company's first customer.
Yesterday, SMITH remembered HARRIS as a close friend.
He recalled a time the steel wasn't correct and he called HARRIS to complain.
"He said, 'Fix it and send me the bill. If you say it's wrong, it's wrong,' SMITH recalled. "Any time I needed help with a charity, I'd call him."
HARRIS was a local Liberal, a former member of the London board of education and a prominent member of the Canadian Jewish Congress.
SMITH said there were few people he'd rave about like HARRIS.
"He'd stick up for the underdog," he said. "I only have two photos in my office -- one of my family and one of me and Milt (HARRIS.)"
In 2003, HARRIS gave $200,000 to the London Young Men's Christian Association to make sure less fortunate children could have the camp experience he cherished.
He saw first-hand, he told The Free Press in 2003, how the experience turned around the lives of many Depression-era children in the Forest City.
HARRIS went to the Silver Beach Camp, a one-time camp on Lake Erie.
"He had some great memories from the 1930s," Shaun ELLIOT/ELLIOTT, chief executive of the London Young Men's Christian Association, said yesterday.
"He was very generous and always remembered he got his start in London."
All HARRIS -- who came from a humble background -- wanted from the Y for his donation was a list of the children who had been helped -- a list now numbering more than 200.
Elliott said he spoke of how, even back then when he faced anti-Semitism in many places, the Young Men's Christian Association was a welcoming, non-discriminatory place.
"He was a very direct man. He wouldn't suffer fools gladly."
The Young Men's Christian Association tried to hold an event to recognize HARRIS for his generosity but he wouldn't allow it.
A news release from the company said HARRIS was diagnosed with cancer recently. His nephew John HARRIS has been appointed chief executive officer of the firm.
"Milt was a modern-day renaissance man with a special genius for commerce. I believe his greatest talent in business was to empower and mentor so many of us," John HARRIS said in the release.
Geno FRANCOLINI, a Londoner and director of the company for 12 years, said his longtime friend was heavily involved in the local Liberal scene, drawn to it by his belief in Canada and desire for it to excel.
HARRIS was part of a group of local Liberals who helped Judd BUCHANAN capture the Conservative stronghold of London West. BUCHANAN was another director for the company that went public in 1967.
"I respected him very, very much. I loved him very, very much," FRANCOLINI said.
Both HARRIS and FRANCOLINI sat at one point as directors of Air Canada -- fired when Brian MULRONEY came to power.
HARRIS was educated at St. George's school and Central collegiate in London before going to the University of Toronto. He served on the University of Western Ontario's senate.
He was made an officer of the Order of Canada in 1986. He is survived by his wife Ethel and children Judith, Naomi and David.

Canoe victim called avid angler with a big heart
By Kelly PEDRO, Free Press Reporter
A Parkhill man who drowned in a weekend boating accident was an avid angler with a big heart, his spouse's sister said yesterday.
"He was a caring and fun-loving guy," Mary SMITH said of her brother-in-law, John WATSON, 43, whose body was found in the Parkhill Conservation Area yesterday morning.
"He had a big heart and would do anything for anyone. He loved his family and Friends."
WATSON and his partner, Sharron WIECHOWSKI, both of Parkhill, were canoeing in five metres of water Saturday about 11 a.m. when their boat capsized.
WIECHOWSKI tried to save WATSON, but couldn't, police said. It was all she could do to swim to shore in the icy water and yell for help.
A passerby heard her and called police.
The canoe carried life-jackets, but police said WATSON and WIECHOWSKI weren't wearing them when they were thrown into the water.
Though police said WATSON couldn't swim, he was an avid angler, SMITH said.
"This is why we're all blown away," she said.
Ontario Provincial Police are still trying to pinpoint why the canoe capsized, said Sgt. Dave REKTOR.
"With a canoe, they're so tippy, and if you're not an experienced boater and you're not comfortable on the water, it can make someone very nervous in a boat that size and the chances of capsizing are enhanced," he said yesterday.
WIECHOWSKI, who would have celebrated her two-year anniversary with WATSON next weekend, is devastated, police and her sister said.
WATSON was excited about the anniversary and making big plans for it, said SMITH.
An autopsy will be done to determine the cause of WATSON's death, REKTOR said.
Ontario Provincial Police divers searched for WATSON late Saturday and all day Sunday before finding his body just before 10 a.m. yesterday.
Recovery efforts were hampered by murky water and the fact that the reservoir -- which used to be farmland before it was flooded has many trees and stumps on its bottom.
REKTOR encouraged anyone using a boat to wear a life-jacket at all times.
"All it takes is a second for someone to slip and fall and hit their head on the boat before they go over," he said.
"If you're conscious and you're a swimmer, great. But if you're unconscious, then you've got some problems. The only thing that's going to save you is a personal flotation device that will keep your head above water."

Second boy dies in swim mishap
By Cassandra SZKLARSKI, Canadian Press
Toronto -- A Toronto family's tragedy deepened last night after the second of three brothers died in hospital following an ill-fated swim in a converted quarry near Fergus.
Calvin LE, 7, died yesterday at Toronto's Hospital for Sick Children after he had been admitted in critical condition Sunday.
His brother, Larry LE, 9, was pronounced dead Sunday at Groves Memorial Hospital in Fergus.
Their brother Anthony LE, 8, was in fair condition yesterday at Hamilton's McMaster Hospital.
Anthony LE was pulled from a pond at the Belwood Lake conservation area Sunday after someone spotted him in the water. The boy's mother was apparently in such shock that she momentarily forgot about her two other sons who had also slipped under the water.
Bystanders said they frantically searched for about 10 minutes before someone spotted the other boys and brought their limp bodies ashore.
The tragedy has prompted a review of safety measures at 12 southern Ontario swimming areas, the conservation agency responsible for the park said yesterday.
Provincial police said it was not clear whether the boys had entered an off-limits area that plunged up to 4 1/2 metres from a depth of just one metre near the shore.
"They were found just offshore, which isn't that far out, but there is a real deep drop shortly after the rope that's out there," said Const. Jennifer SMITH.
She called the accident "preventable" and said police were investigating whether the boys knew how to swim.
The brothers' deaths occurred a little more than a week after a 15-year-old boy drowned at an unsupervised reservoir in Cambridge run by the same conservation authority that oversees the small Fergus beach near Belwood Lake.
The teen's death June 3 spurred officials to question whether enough was being done to keep visitors safe, said Dave SCHULTZ, a spokesperson for the Grand River Conservation Authority.
None of the agency's natural swimming areas have patrols, but they all include signs warning beachgoers to supervise children and to obey buoys marking deep waters.
"We are going to do a general review of all the safety procedures at our beaches," SCHULTZ said.
"We're going to look at the signage, we're going to look at the buoy line, we're going to look at emergency procedures."
The deaths of the Toronto brothers came after a 28-year-old Kitchener man drowned Saturday night at a private quarry near Guelph.
SMITH said the man wasn't a strong swimmer.
"It's unusual," she said of the accidents. "But it's an unusually warm June, as well. The heat and the humidity are sending people to bodies of water. We just have to use water safety."

We still laugh, smile and shed tears

Because that day in July, you slipped away.

Don't think of Katie as gone away,
Her adventure has just begun,
Our lives hold many dimensions,
Life on earth is merely one.
Remember Katie smiling,
As she is today,
Knowing only our sadness,
Can truly pass away.
Think of her forever alive,
In the hearts of those she touched.
No one loved is ever lost, and Katie is loved so much.

In loving memory of Deborah (Debbie). God you saw you getting tired, When a cure was not to be, So he closed his arms around you, And whispered, come to me. A golden heart stopped beating, Your gentle hands at rest, God broke our hearts to prove to us, He only takes the best. In tears we saw you sinking, We watched you fade away, Our hearts were broken, You fought so hard to stay. But when we saw you sleeping, Peacefully and free from pain, We could not wish you back, To suffer that again. So keep your arms around her Lord, And give her special care, Make up for all she suffered, That seemed to us unfair. So many times we've wanted you, So many times we've cried, If our love could have saved you, You never would have died. One year ago today. We love you Deb and miss you so much. Mom and family.

Migrant workers killed by car while biking to Delhi in dark
By Monte SONNENBERG, Special to The Free Press
Otterville -- Investigators probing a collision near Delhi that killed two migrant workers and left a third with serious injuries are probing the role vehicle speed and the absence of bicycle reflectors may have played in the crash.
William BELL, 54, Desmond McNEIL, 39, and Fred SMITH, 35, were cycling on Highway 59 northwest of Delhi about 7: 50 p.m. Tuesday when they were hit from behind by a car, Norfolk Ontario Provincial Police said.
BELL and McNEIL were killed. SMITH was taken to London Health Sciences Centre.
BELL, McNEIL and SMITH were part of an eight-man crew from Jamaica working at the Kwan farm near Otterville.
"This morning, before they started their work day, we took some time and said some words about the injured and killed and had a moment of silence," Arthur KWAN said last night. "It's at a time like this when it really hits you because you realize they're not coming back. It was a total shock. I watched last night as they rode out the lane."
The men were riding toward Delhi in the dark on bicycles when they were hit by a car near the intersection of Mall Road, police said.
The car suffered extensive damage. Its driver, Chris MORRIS, 26, of Simcoe, was admitted to Norfolk General Hospital in Simcoe for observations after showing signs of distress, police said.
BELL had been employed on the Kwan farm for the last eight years. The farm near Otterville specializes in growing Chinese vegetables.
KWAN described BELL as a hard worker who was always seeking extra hours to support his large family.
"He was always a good-natured guy," he said. "You could always joke around with him. He was a dependable, go-to guy who did his best in the field."
McNEIL often spoke of a woman in Jamaica, but never shared her name, KWAN said.
He frequently rode into Delhi to call her because she was worried about him.
McNEIL went into Delhi Monday -- the day before he died -- and bought his sweetheart a fancy necklace. KWAN said McNEIL was likely cycling into Delhi to call her again when the collision occurred.
The KWAN family and the rest of the Jamaican crew travelled to London last night to check on SMITH, who is expected to recover.
The Jamaican Liaison Office took possession of the affected workers' belongings yesterday. They will be held in trust pending their return to next-of-kin. The liaison office is arranging to fly the bodies back to Jamaica.

Woman dies days after jail release
By Jane SIMS, Free Press Justice Reporter, Wed., October 5, 2005
A woman convicted of aggravated assault in connection with a bizarre homicide a year ago has died, days after her release from custody.
Tina MICKLOS, 35, was released from jail Thursday.
She died Sunday at her parents' London home of a possible drug overdose, London police said.
MICKLOS had finished the last 45 days of an 18-month sentence for aggravated assault in the case of Dennis GODMAIRE, 44, who was found dead in his Bathurst Street apartment on October 5, A manslaughter charge against her was dropped.
MICKLOS was one of three people with GODMAIRE during a drinking binge. A day later, GODMAIRE's body was found in his blood-spattered kitchen under an office chair, a 20-inch television set, a smashed oven door and a Canadian flag.
At her sentencing after pleading guilty, the court heard the binge turned violent after GODMAIRE made derogatory comments about MICKLOS and grabbed her shirt.
MICKLOS admitted she cut off GODMAIRE's pant legs, hit him in the head with a beer bottle and helped trash the kitchen.
Robert SMITH was sentenced in July to two years less a day for his part in the crime.
Another man is awaiting his day in court.
MICKLOS had a criminal record, but none of the convictions involved violence.
At her bail hearing last spring, she told court she was living on social assistance at the time of her arrest and suffered from post-traumatic stress disorder and depression.
She said she found jail "very traumatic" before she was released with her sister acting as surety.
At her preliminary hearing two months later, MICKLOS's bail was revoked and she was returned to custody, remaining there until her release.

SCOTT, Donald " Don" Clayton
A well known sportsman and business executive pass away on November 3, 2005 of cancer in his 78th year. Don had many ties with London and the University of Western Ontario. He entered Western in 1945 having won a Sir Arthur Currie Memorial Scholarship awarded by the University of Western Ontario for proficiency in academics and athletics. He played both football and basketball with the Western Mustangs and graduated with a degree in Honours Business Administration. On graduation in 1949 he moved to Toronto and joined Clarkson Gordon (later became Ernst and Young) and a year later married Eilleen SMITH of London. He also found time to play for the Toronto Argonauts for three years. In 1950 he was a member of the championship team that won the Grey Cup in the infamous "mud bowl" game and was named the "Team of the Half-Century." He retired from Ernst and Young in 1987 after spending the last 8 years as Chairman and Chief Executive Officer of that firm. Following his retirement he was active with a number of activities including assisting the Ontario government in setting up the newly legislated Ontario Insurance Commission where he served as Commissioner for three years. During the years, he participated on many charitable and business boards and committees but he never lost his ties to Western. For many years he was a member of the Advisory Committee to the Ivey School of Business. He also served on the Cabinet of the Renaissance Campaign and President of the Alumni Advisory Committee. He is loved and missed by his wife, Eilleen, his children and grandchildren. The family will receive Friends at the Humphrey Funeral Home - A.W.

SCOTT, Donald " Don" Clayton
A well known sportsman and business executive pass away on November 3, 2005 of cancer in his 78th year. Don had many ties with London and the University of Western Ontario. He entered Western in 1945 having won a Sir Arthur Currie Memorial Scholarship awarded by the University of Western Ontario for proficiency in academics and athletics. He played both football and basketball with the Western Mustangs and graduated with a degree in Honours Business Administration. On graduation in 1949 he moved to Toronto and joined Clarkson Gordon (later became Ernst and Young) and a year later married Eilleen SMITH of London. He also found time to play for the Toronto Argonauts for three years. In 1950 he was a member of the championship team that won the Grey Cup in the infamous "mud bowl" game and was named the "Team of the Half-Century." He retired from Ernst and Young in 1987 after spending the last 8 years as Chairman and Chief Executive Officer of that firm. Following his retirement he was active with a number of activities including assisting the Ontario government in setting up the newly legislated Ontario Insurance Commission where he served as Commissioner for three years. During the years, he participated on many charitable and business boards and committees but he never lost his ties to Western. For many years he was a member of the Advisory Committee to the Ivey School of Business. He also served on the Cabinet of the Renaissance Campaign and President of the Alumni Advisory Committee. He is loved and missed by his wife, Eilleen, his children and grandchildren. The family will receive Friends at the Humphrey Funeral Home - A.W.
