PILFOLD, Joseph Henry (April 24, 1920-August 7, 2007)
Joseph Henry PILFOLD was born a true cockney in Bermondsey at the South end of Tower Bridge in London in 1920. His mother and father were once elected Pearly King and Queen. His handsome looks and flaming red hair which remained until very late in life made him stand out, as did his ability as a crooner, soccer player, dart player and jovial wit. At nineteen he saw active service in the British army in West Africa, catching malaria. He volunteered as a gunner on merchant ship convoys crossing the Atlantic and was torpedoed twice on the same day in the Bay of Biscay in two different ships, surviving 36 hours in the water before being rescued.
Near the end of the war he was assigned to the entertainment unit. He met a beautiful war widow with two young children, Amy SUCH (née GUNTHORPE) while performing at the Adelphi Theatre and they married in Christmas of 1948. Amy and Joe opened up a florist shop then immigrated to Toronto, Canada in 1953. There, Joe worked in real estate, at one time opening his own business before being appointed the sales manager for Pitney Bowes. He and Amy spent their life moving back and forth between Canada and the United Kingdom several times before settling in British Columbia some 20 years ago. He is survived by his wife Amy, step-sons Lionel and Peter SUCH, their wives Alice SUCH and Joyce KLINE grandchildren Lionel, Kerry, Stephanie, Luba and Julia and great-grandchildren Spencer, Stirling, Morgan and Tuesday. A celebration of Joe's life will be held at First Memorial, 1155 Fort Street in Victoria, on September 8, at 3.00 p.m.

Neighbours left in shock following murder-suicide
By Rob LAMBERTI, Sun Media, Thurs., October 18, 2007
Toronto -- Neighbours are stunned and shaken, but they understand Ed and Jessie KLING were suffering.
"It was unbelievable shock. I still don't want to believe it happened," next-door neighbour Jim PATSAKOS said.
"You would never think this would happen to these people. It would never cross your mind."
Jessie, 81, who was bedridden and suffering from cancer, which claimed her sister this past summer, was found shot to death in a bedroom Tuesday night.
Her husband, Ed, 83, a Second World War veteran and retired teacher who was suffering from a heart condition, was found dead in the garage of a self-inflicted gunshot wound.
Jessie's body was found by a daughter and police found Ed. The couple had three daughters and a son and several grandchildren.
One daughter, Susan, committed suicide about 20 years ago, said one neighbour.
The Klings were known for their colourful blooms in the small but well-kept flower beds, but neighbours said Ed didn't seem to take care of his precious flowers this summer as well as he did in summers past.
Neighbours didn't know anything about the long barrelled shotgun and handguns Toronto Police took out of the red brick bungalow.
Police also took a blood-soaked patio chair out of the garage.
"How are you going to survive when everything hits you?" asked a neighbour. "You can only feel sad for them."
But when they were well, they lit up the neighbourhood, say area residents.
"They were always out there in their garden and talking to everybody who walked by," PATSAKOS said.
But they were slowing down, the neighbour of 20 years said. "They were both failing."
PATSAKOS said he spoke with the couple's son Barry, of California, during Thanksgiving, who said his elderly parents were "going downhill pretty quick."
Nevertheless, there was no indication of a pending tragedy, he said.
