Friends mourn a man who was cheerful, selfless
Constable Rob PLUNKETT is York Regional Police's first fatality in the line of duty in more than two decades
By Timothy APPLEBY and Alan CAIRNS and Tim SHUFELT, Page A8
On the chilly February day nine years ago, when 78-year-old Katherine TOPPI's car skidded across a frozen lake and then plunged through the ice close to the retirement home in Markham where she lived, her prospects could scarcely have been more dire.
Ms. TOPPI had suffered a stroke and lost control of her vehicle, which now was submerged in a couple of metres of bone-numbing water.
Fortunately for her, a couple of uniformed guardian angels were on hand.
One was York Regional Police Constable Brent LUCKASAVITCH; the other his partner, Constable Rob PLUNKETT.
Together the policemen carried an inflatable boat out across the ice and paddled it out to the stricken car, the windshield of which Constable PLUNKETT smashed with his baton. They then scooped the shivering Ms. TOPPI to safety.
A cheerful, gregarious father of three and a star athlete who ran triathlons and excelled at half a dozen other strength-testing sports, Constable PLUNKETT won a bravery award for the rescue and would likely have said it was all in a day's work.
But the volunteer work he did, over and above a 22-year police career cut short early yesterday morning, set him apart.
And his particular passion was in working with mentally handicapped athletes.
"He had a tremendous impact; he's been a great inspiration for everyone who knew him. This is a huge loss," said Deborah BRIGHT, president and Chief Executive Officer of Special Olympics Canada. "He was just one of these good people you don't meet very often in your life."
When York Regional Police played host to the Ontario Special Olympics in 2000, Constable PLUNKETT chaired the bidding team, raising close to $1-million for the roughly 800 participants, drawn from almost 100 countries. Five events took centre stage: floor hockey, five- and 10-pin bowling, swimming and powerlifting.
As well, he was for many years instrumental in organizing the annual Law Enforcement Torch Run, since 1987 the favoured charity of Ontario's police.
"Rob was one of our top fundraisers for more than 15 years," Special Olympics Ontario president Glen MacDONELL said.
"He really believed in what the Special Olympics did for people with intellectual disabilities and he was really engaged in the community. It was in his nature to be that way and he was well thought of right around the world. He was recognized locally, provincially, nationally and internationally because he was one of the best."
Why did he do it? It was not because he had any vested interest. None of his three children - two sons aged 16 and 14 and an 18-year-old daughter - bore any of the handicaps shared by the people whose cause he championed.
"He didn't do this for any obvious reasons - he was just a great man, he loved doing things for other people," said Constable Alan RICHARDSON of the Timmins Police Service, the National Torch Run co-ordinator.
"He had no connection with the Special Olympics other than that he was a police officer and that's our charity of choice. He was just a great family man who loved sports. Everybody he touched and talked to and got to know held him close to their hearts."
Constable PLUNKETT spent several years with the York Regional Police tactical squad, one of the more hazardous police duties, before switching to undercover surveillance work.
"As a police officer you'd think that might be a safer job," Constable RICHARDSON said. "But you know, there is no safe job as a police officer."
In Constable PLUNKETT's small hometown of Midhurst, just north of Barrie, residents were reeling yesterday after learning their neighbour and friend was the fallen policeman they had heard about in news reports. One family friend broke into tears.
"He was a really lovely man, with a really strong family," she said, asking not to be named, before running to the PLUNKETT home. Constable PLUNKETT's widow, a school teacher, was "devastated," the woman said.
The PLUNKETT family sat on the front porch of their grey-brick house on what is normally a quiet street. Cars lined the tree-filled front yard as Friends and family gathered to offer support.
A spokesman for the family said they were too distraught to speak about their loss. A friend of the PLUNKETTs' youngest son said he went over to the family's house after hearing the news.
"He's upset, but it hasn't really sunk in," said 14-year-old Brian HUGHES. "No one wants to believe it's true."
By every account, the veteran officer was a well-liked, if private, neighbour.
Roland DEMPSTER, a 30-year community resident, was aware that Constable PLUNKETT was a policeman but only knew him well enough to wave from his yard.
Mr. DEMPSTER shook his head at what he said was a senseless crime.
"For an airbag? Does that make any sense to you?" he said. "It's sad our society's going that way."
The PLUNKETTs' oldest child, Amanda, is preparing to go to university in the fall, said Kay RADMAN, a co-worker at the nearby Sears department store.
"She's a wonderful girl; we just love her," she said of Amanda, who attended Ms. RADMAN's 50th birthday party last weekend.
In yesterday's wilting heat, flags at all city facilities in the City of Vaughan flew at half mast, as they did at Toronto police stations, to honour the slain officer. They will remain that way until Constable PLUNKETT's funeral.
"Our heartfelt sympathies and prayers are with his family," Vaughan Mayor Linda JACKSON said in a statement. "The full meaning of the police motto, 'To serve and protect,' is brought home to all of us today by today's tragic event."

Officer remembered as friend, athlete
'Affable manner and his Huron County charm made him a very easy person to get to know,' Chief says
By Sean Patrick SULLIVAN, Canadian Press, Page A10
Newmarket -- Thousands of police officers from across Canada paid tribute yesterday to slain Detective Constable Robert PLUNKETT, who was remembered at his funeral service as a dedicated family man with a personal motto of: "Go big or go home."
Det. Constable PLUNKETT, 43, a 22-year veteran of York Regional Police, was killed last week when he was struck by a car while attempting to make an arrest.
Officers in dress uniform were marshalled on a grass-covered slope before marching into the complex in this city north of Toronto, followed by a solemn stream of mourners.
The complex's 3,500 seats were filled, as was an overflow room. Some 1,500 other mourners - many of them uniformed police officers - listened to the ceremony from the parking lot in 30-degree temperatures.
York Regional Police Chief Armand LA BARGE praised Det. Constable PLUNKETT's athleticism and superb physical conditioning, which he said set the officer apart from others in his rookie year.
"Rob's affable manner and his Huron County charm made him a very easy person to get to know, and as a member of our police service, Rob distinguished himself as a very determined and a very gifted athlete," Chief LA BARGE said.
York Inspector Tom CARRIQUE said Det. Constable PLUNKETT's colleagues valued his ability to bring levity to a situation with a practical joke, often at the expense of an unsuspecting supervisor.
He recalled how "Plunk" and a few accomplices were once caught carrying a colleague's Austin Mini Cooper across a parking lot on their way to hiding it in a corn field.
Glenn MacDONNELL, president of Special Olympics Ontario, said Det. Constable PLUNKETT's love of sport - and his belief that policing is more than just law and order - prompted the enthusiastic officer to throw himself into organizing events for the group, including acting as chair for the Special Olympic Spring Games in 2000.
Det. Constable PLUNKETT received a number of accolades throughout his career, including one in February, 1998, when he was recognized for bravery in assisting in rescuing an elderly woman from the freezing waters of Swan Lake in nearby Markham.
He is survived by his wife Sonja and three children, Amanda, Matthew and Jeffrey.
The funeral comes one day after a charge against a suspect in Det. Constable PLUNKETT's death, Nadeem JIWA, 19, was upgraded from manslaughter to first-degree murder. Baseer YOUSAFZAI, 23, faces at least four lesser charges. Both suspects appeared in a Newmarket courtroom yesterday and will return to court later this month.

She is survived by her son, Rick, and her daughter, Lynne (Janet McDOUGALL,) as well as by numerous nieces, nephews, and Friends of all ages and stages in her life. Jean had lived with cardiovascular issues since her bypass surgery in 1976. Her determination, positive attitude ('I'm in pretty good shape for the shape I'm in') and zest for life, not only kept her going, but also made her a favourite of all who met her. She loved life and the people in her life helping others was her passion. She will be sorely missed by many. The family wishes to thank the staff at Cedarhurst Residence where Jean rediscovered the social world from which she had become distanced as the alzheimer's /mixed dementia progressed. In accordance with her wishes, she has already been cremated. We will welcome family and Friends at the Humphrey Funeral Home - A.W. Miles Chapel, 1403 Bayview Avenue (south of Eglinton Avenue East), from 7-9 p.m. on Friday, January 12th. A celebration of Jean's life will be held in the chapel at 3: 00 p.m. on Saturday, January 13th with reception to follow. If desired, donations would be appreciated to Ewart Angus Sprint Homes - Cedarhurst 2601 Bayview Avenue, Toronto M2L 1B5.

MacDOUGALL, John Frederick Fulton
Passed away at home after a brief battle with cancer on Sunday, August 12, 2007 at the age of 80 with his family by his side. John will be greatly missed and lovingly remembered by his wife of 50 years, Rosemary; sons, Jock (Jenny), Bruce (Darcy), Tim (Julia); daughter, Mary-Anne (Keith), seven delightful grandchildren: Stephanie, Anna, Clare, Miranda, Emily, William and Jack; brother, Richard and nephew Andrew (Candice). He was predeceased by his sister, Lael in 2001. He was a good friend to many and the family extends their heartfelt thanks to the many Friends who supported John during the last few months. Our heartfelt gratitude to Deserie Panaligan, Juvy Badua, Margarita Celso, Melanie Facun and Ronda Tuyp for the wonderful care they provided to John and the family during this very difficult time.
Born August 24, 1926 in Vancouver, British Columbia, John attended St. George's School, Brentwood School and Banff High School. He attended University of British Columbia where he earned his B.Comm. in 1947 and his California designation in 1953. He enjoyed a very successful career in the financial and investment industry built upon a reputation of intelligence, integrity and hard work. His retirement was filled with travel and enjoying time spent with family on Galiano Island. John will also be remembered for his sense of responsibility and care for others demonstrated in his support for the Pacific Assistance Dogs Society, Canuck Place, West Point Grey Academy, Stratford Hall School and St. George's School to name just a few. John was the co-founder of the St. George's School Hamper Drive as well as President of the St. George's Old Boys' Association from 1968-1974. John was a passionate supporter of the Toronto Maple Leafs and thought 40 years was too long to wait for another Stanley Cup victory! A memorial service to celebrate John's life will be held at Saint Mary's Church Kerrisdale, 2490 West 37th Avenue, Vancouver, British Columbia on Monday, August 20 at 2 p.m. In lieu of flowers, a donation may be made in John's memory to the Canadian Cancer Society or the Canadian Red Cross.
