HALE kept busy with electrical shop, family and golf
By Paige AARHUS, Sun., July 6, 2008
A gentle giant described by Friends as larger than life, longtime London businessperson Bev HALE died last month following a lengthy illness.
He was 75.
An avid golfer, HALE was a fixture at the Highland Golf and Country Club, where he was a member for 38 years.
"You couldn't have found a better person in the world to golf with. He was a single-digit handicap for years," said friend Mike SILVER, the Professional Golfers' Association Canada golf director at Highland.
"He was so steady and he didn't make very many mistakes."
HALE was a steady businessperson as well, operating family-owned Hale Electric for 40 years after taking over from his father, William.
Hale Electric was London's first electrical contracting service, and many new electricians got their start with an apprenticeship at HALE's shop.
"He was an excellent business man and incredibly honest. His customers were very loyal," said HALE's widow Marilyn.
Standing six feet six inches tall, HALE earned his "Big Bev" nickname -- proudly displayed on his vanity licence plates -- early on.
"That's how people knew him, he was Big Bev. You could always see him coming and he could light up a room," said Marilyn.
Marilyn met her future husband in high school, and they were married in 1954.
The lifelong Londoners found a welcoming community in the city's south, and Marilyn said they never considered moving elsewhere.
"He loved this city and he had so many Friends here. Everybody knew Bev," she said.
Although he was busy with the day-to-day rigours of owning and operating a bustling business, Marilyn said her husband made time for family, Friends and, of course, golf.
He also played drums in a local big band, the Moonlighters, practising and performing at the golf club for years.
His stature, fun-loving personality and signature gin and orange juice made HALE a favourite at Highland.
But he was perhaps best known for being so well known, said SILVER.
"Everyone knew Bev and he knew everyone. He could walk into a room and within an hour, he would know everybody's name," he said.
"He only made the people around him happier, he was that type of guy. Over the years, as a pro at the golf course, you sort of make many acquaintances and some Friends. He was a great friend of mine."

Farmer's death a cautionary tale
By Paige AARHUS, Thurs., July 24, 2008
A safety expert is warning older farmers to exercise caution after a 66-year-old man was run over and killed by a combine Tuesday night.
At about 7: 30 p.m., Carl LEACH/LEECH/LEITCH of Middlesex Centre was combining a field on Fourteen Mile Road with other area farmers.
The group packed up after it started raining, but as the combine was moving back to the barn, LEACH/LEECH/LEITCH was caught under the wheels.
"The combine was in the process of starting and moving into the barn, and the operator called out to see if anybody was close, and didn't hear any reply, and started out," said Ontario Provincial Police Const. Doug Graham. "The combination of weather, noise from combine and not getting any response resulted in a death, unfortunately."
LEACH/LEECH/LEITCH was transported to University Hospital in London by Middlesex London Emergency Medical Services and he was pronounced dead on arrival.
Catherine Isaacs, national co-ordinator of the Canadian Agricultural Injury Surveillance program, said runovers are difficult to prevent.
"We have seen no decline in the number of run-overs a year," she said. "Unfortunately we see the children and elderly people killed far more frequently in the case of bystander run-overs."
According to the injury surveillance program, seniors are more likely to be involved in farm accidents because of reduced hearing and agility.
Between 1991 and 2004, 601 adults age 60 or older were killed in agricultural accidents. Of those, 74.2 per cent of the deaths were machine-related.
The leading causes of fatal agricultural injuries in older adults were machine rollovers (24.5 per cent) and machine runovers (22.3 per cent).
Isaacs said people should never walk next to or near running farm machines, even though that's common practice on many farms.
"Standard practice gets a lot of people killed… It's not good practice from a safety point of view," she said.
Farmers exposed to high levels of noise should also wear headphones or earplugs to protect their hearing and prevent accidents, Isaacs said.
