WALLNER, Joseph Peter " Joe"
Died peacefully, on March 2, 2005 at Wellington House Nursing Home in Prescott, Ontario, after several years of declining health, in his 88th year. Born April 11, 1917 in Hanover, Ontario, and a long-time resident of Ancaster and Burlington, Joe was known throughout his life as a fine gentleman who championed through his actions his belief in God, family, his country and the credit union movement. Active in credit unions from an early age, Joe joined the staff of CUNA Mutual in 1951 and travelled extensively in Canada, the U.S. and abroad to support the growth and development of credit unions, and insurance services for credit unions. In 1954-1955 he was president of CUNA (Hamilton) Credit Union. He established many lasting Friendships through his business travels, retiring as Senior Vice President, Corporate Relations, for CUMIS in 1982. He also was active in the Burlington Chamber of Commerce, serving as its president in 1976. In World War 2, Joe served first in the Merchant Marine and then more than three years in Ferry Command, delivering planes and equipment across the Atlantic. His patriotism was still evident years later when he organized a door-to-door campaign in Burlington to encourage families to proudly fly their country's flag on Canada Day. Dozens of families took part, including virtually everyone on Joe's street. Joe was a founding member of two Catholic parishes and was a founding director of St. Louis Parish Credit Union, which became Waterloo Regional Credit Union and where he retained membership for more than 50 years. He was a member of Saint John the Baptist Roman Catholic Church in Burlington for 37 years. The family express their deepest appreciation to Father John APPELMAN and the Pastoral Care Group at Saint Mark's Parish, Prescott, who supported Joe's faith in many kind ways in recent years. Joe's other great faith was in medical practitioners, from whom he received stellar care, particularly in his declining years. The family would especially like to thank the caring and compassionate staff at Wellington House, where he spent his last four years, as well as Dr. Maung Tun ZAW of Burlington and Dr. Gun BHATT of Prescott. Joe was the dear father of John WALLNER (Sheila) of Gatineau, Quebec, and Eloise COLEMAN (Tom) of Toronto and Brockville. He was predeceased by two loving wives: Audrey Mary BENINGER, (1981,) and Margaret WHITELEY, (1992.) He is survived by his sister Salome (Mrs. Dan DACEY) of Thunder Bay, and brother George WALLNER (Phyllis) of Guelph, and was predeceased by three siblings; Sister Mary SALOME, S.S.N.D.; Gertrude (Mrs. James DAVIDSON) of Kenora; and Flight-Sergeant John WALLNER of Hanover, who was shot down in action August 18, 1943, 15 months after serving as Joe and Audrey's best man. He was 23. Loving sisters and brothers-in-law include Rosemary TRAPLIN (Jack) of Kitchener, Elaine COUCH (Hank) of Calgary, Doris (Mrs. Tom) BENINGER of Orleans, Loretto (Mrs. Gerald) BENINGER of Belleville, Monique (Mrs. Len) BENINGER of Sorel, Quebec, Helen YEO (Kenneth) of St. Catharines, Irmgard (Mrs. Ralph) ROEDIGER of Hamilton and, deceased, Marguerite (Mrs. Lawrence) COLIGAN of Morrisburg, and Bernice MURPHY of Toronto. Joe was also very close to dozens of nieces and nephews. Visitation at the Smith's Funeral Home, 485 Brant Street (one block north of City Hall), Burlington (905-632-3333) Friday March 4th from 3 to 5, and 7 to 9 p.m. with Vigil Prayers at 8: 30 p.m. Mass of Christian Burial at Saint John's Church, Burlington (Brant Street at Blairholm) on Saturday, March 5, 2005 at 10: 00 a.m. Interment Holy Sepulchre Cemetery. In lieu of flowers, the family would be grateful for expressions of sympathy through donations to School Sisters of Notre Dame Mission Fund, c/o Notre Dame Motherhouse 1921 Snake Road, Waterdown Ontario L0R 2H0.

Shortly before, a suspect was seen running across the plaza, on Islington Avenue near Woodbridge Avenue. The suspect is described as white, clean shaven, with a thin build, wearing a green winter hooded coat and a tuque. The slaying of Mr. RACO marked York Region's first homicide of the year.

Four die in shooting at London family home
By Timothy APPLEBY, Tuesday, June 28, 2005, Page A7
A quiet residential street in downtown London, Ontario, exploded into violence early yesterday, a melee that ended in a shootout with police and a house fire that left four people dead and four police officers injured.
The house is owned by a long-distance trucker and his wife. Police were summoned by a 911 call placed by one of the family's three young children from a neighbour's house. Local media reported that the couple's nine-year-old daughter placed the call.
When police entered the house, the girl's mother and two siblings and the gunman were dead.
The province's Special Investigations Unit, which examines all deaths and serious injuries involving police, released no names. It was unclear who the gunman was.
Neighbours, however, confirmed that the modest Princess Avenue bungalow was occupied by John CZUBA, his wife and their children. The family emigrated from Poland several years ago, said Andrew KRALKA, who lives directly across the street.
The father was believed by local residents to have been driving through the United States when the family members were killed.
"It's all been a big shock for us; this is very tragic," Mr. KRALKA said.
Alerted at 2: 25 a.m. by the 911 call reporting an assault in progress, police arriving at the household were met by gunfire that struck two of the officers.
Police returned the fire, but authorities would not say whether the gunman, later found dead inside the house from a single gunshot wound, was killed by a police bullet or had committed suicide.
Both wounded officers were shot in the upper body but were wearing body armour, and both were released from hospital yesterday.
The couple also had a 13-year-old daughter and a five-year-old son.
London Police Constable Jeff ARBING would say only the 911 emergency call "came from a child, from a different location," adding that in 15 years of police service, "a homicide of this magnitude is something I haven't personally seen."
Neighbours recounted scenes of chaos. "I heard a quick 'Bang, bang, bang, bang' -- four shots. It sounded like firecrackers accompanied by a whole lot of police sirens," said David STEVENS, who was watching television at his home when the violence erupted across the street.
"Then there was a second series of shots, about five minutes later."
Amid scenes of shouted confusion, nearby residents retreated to their basements for safety.
During the 20-minute confrontation, a fire also broke out at the home, but it was unclear whether it stemmed from smoke grenades that tactical officers threw in, or another source. Two police officers were later treated in hospital for smoke inhalation.
"There was grey smoke just pouring out of the house," Mr. STEVENS said. Other neighbours described seeing police running down the street with children in their arms, carrying them toward waiting ambulances.
Both in their 40s, Mr. and Mrs. CZUBA owned the home and had lived there for several years.
Local residents described the family as courteous but introverted, spending time with other Polish-Canadians instead of their immediate neighbours.
Mr. CZUBA is often away and sometimes parks his rig on the street, Mr. KRALKA said.
"They don't really associate with people on the street," said another neighbour. "When we first moved here the kids were allowed to play with the other kids, but then they weren't, and the kids didn't go out any more.
"It makes me sad."
As to what triggered the violence, "That I'm not sure of," Constable ARBING said.
"That's an honest answer. I don't know what we have here."

Homicide toll climbs to 38 after weekend shootings
Four dead in separate incidents in the Greater Toronto Area within less than 12 hours
By Timothy APPLEBY, Monday, August 1, 2005, Page A7
Toronto's homicide total for the year climbed to 38 yesterday after three disparate gunshot slayings in different corners of the city within less than 12 hours.
And just north of the city, Peel Region police were investigating the Greater Toronto Area's fourth homicide of the weekend after a woman was found suffering "severe trauma" in a basement apartment in Brampton.
In Toronto, one killing occurred shortly before dawn, as thousands of post-Caribana celebrants milled on downtown Yonge Street, and was witnessed by a police officer who chased and captured the alleged gunman nearby. Panicked onlookers fled as the gunfire erupted.
The three Toronto homicides came on the heels of a blood-soaked 48 hours less than a week earlier, when seven people were wounded in six different gun incidents that were also apparently unrelated.
The weekend violence took place just days after Statistics Canada released its annual crime report for 2004, which showed that the Greater Toronto Area had the lowest crime rate of any major Canadian city last year, with an 8.6 per cent reduction over The number of murders in Toronto dropped by 3 per cent last year, dipping to 64, even as the rate rose nationwide. (In 1991, the Toronto figure was 89, a record high.)
Together, those seemingly contrary trends suggest that while the city overall may be safer than a few years ago, the opposite holds true within the underworld, where by every measure there are more firearms available than ever before, notably handguns smuggled in from the United States.
"The biggest concern is, the number of people out there who know people who are carrying guns," Staff Insp. Jeff McGUIRE, who heads the homicide squad, said yesterday. "We need people to come forward and work with us so we can get them off the street."
The first of the weekend's slayings occurred in North York Saturday afternoon, when police were summoned by a 911 call from a 10-year-old boy living in a high-rise apartment on Flemington Road, close to where one of last weekend's shootings occurred.
Inside the apartment was Leroy WHITTAKER, 46, shot dead by bullets fired through the closed front door, apparently after a knock.
Two men seen loitering in the corridor a short while before the shooting are being sought.
As to whether Mr. WHITTAKER was the intended victim, "we don't know because the shooters themselves would not have known who was on the other side," Staff Insp. McGUIRE said.
"We're simply fortunate that the 10-year-old lad was not in the way."
Next to die, shortly before midnight Saturday, was Umathevan THIYAGARAJAH, 26, found in the well-lit parking lot of a small strip mall at Finch and Warden avenues in Scarborough.
Mr. THIYAGARAJAH, who appeared to have had no previous dealings with police, had been shot several times and was pronounced dead at the scene.
Several men were spied near where his body was found. Police yesterday urged any witnesses: to come forward.
Finally, at around 4: 30 a.m. yesterday, came the gunfire at Yonge and Dundas streets, killing Dwayne TAILOR/TAYLOR, 21, of Brampton, who died later in hospital.
Ajine STEWARD/STEWART/STUART, 24, of Mississauga, was arrested soon after the shooting and faces a charge of first-degree murder.
In Brampton, police responded to a 911 call about 1 p.m. yesterday after a man who was seen walking naked in the Williams Parkway and McLaughlin Road area said a crime had been committed.
Officers later discovered a 21-year-old woman "suffering from severe trauma to the head" in a nearby basement apartment, Constable Jennifer BRYER said.
The woman died of her injuries in hospital.
Police are treating her death as a homicide and have arrested the man, but he has not been charged. They say the man and woman knew each other.
Staff Insp. McGUIRE stressed that Toronto's weekend Caribana festivities appear not to have had any connection to the violence.
While much of the crowd packed into Dundas Square had been celebrating Caribana, he noted, the festival itself was by then long over and was almost entirely trouble-free.
"This had nothing to do with Caribana, it's a very unfortunate incident, I'm sure the people associated with Caribana just shake their heads."

Neighbours are relieved arrest made
Police find human remains 100 kilometres from where Alicia ROSS was last seen
By Unnati GANDHI and Timothy APPLEBY, With a report from Oliver MOORE, Thursday, September 22, 2005, Page A17
Sitting around the kitchen table, four Friends of Alicia ROSS's family tried to calm their nerves with a cup of tea yesterday afternoon. They couldn't bear to be outside where lines of police tape surrounded the neighbouring home of 31-year-old Daniel SYLVESTER, who surrendered to police and is charged with second-degree murder.
"Why didn't he do it earlier?" asked Benny ARONOWITZ, who lives on Green Lane. "The family had to suffer so much."
One of Mr. ARONOWITZ's Friends, Nina REZMOVITZ, said her son, David, and Ms. ROSS were good Friends.
"We're all parents, and this is the worst thing that could happen to any of us," she said. "David and his girlfriend scoured the ravine for hours. He was so distraught."
Ms. ROSS, 25, was last seen by her boyfriend, Sean HINE, just after midnight on August 17 at the home where she lived with her parents. Police described Mr. HINE as a person of interest, but yesterday her next-door neighbour turned himself in.
Hours later, police discovered human remains in two locations. They said they're confident the remains are those of Ms. ROSS.
Ontario's chief coroner confirmed the remains were found near the town of Manilla, about 50 kilometres northeast of Markham, and near the town of Coboconk, another 40 kilometres north.
Bronte Road, the tree-lined street where the victim lived, was quiet yesterday except for the forensic investigators who were scouring the house next door, a home listed as belonging to Grant SYLVESTER since 1997. The best-selling author died in 1999.
His widow, Olga Mary, and son Daniel continued to live in the family home. The couple's other son, Robert, had moved to Mississauga.
Although Daniel SYLVESTER lived in the neighbourhood, he seems to have left little impression. Shown his photo, numerous local residents said they had never seen him. Two women who lived within 100 metres of the SYLVESTER home said working suburbanites invariably go from their car to their house, barely saying hello to any but the closest neighbours.
"I don't know the name of the person across the street," said Angela TORTI, who moved to the area 22 years ago when it was a new subdivision.
None of the neighbours lingering around the cordoned-off area claimed to have seen any of the SYLVESTERs much.
"Everybody today kind of goes their own way. When you have small children, you go out walking with them and you get to know your neighbours," Ms. REZMOVITZ said. "But once your kids are grown, often you don't know who your neighbours are."
Calls to the SYLVESTER home and to Robert's home, office and cottage were not answered.
Next door to the SYLVESTER residence, two posters with Ms. ROSS's photo were still taped to the back windows of an sport utility vehicle. A couple arrived to visit Ms. ROSS's family during the afternoon, but declined to comment afterward.
Around dinnertime, a police officer prevented a teenage girl from entering blocked-off Bronte Road. She left a plastic-wrapped bouquet at the barricade and lit a small candle.
Although some residents said they were shocked to hear that a neighbour had been arrested, they said they were nevertheless relieved.
"It's devastating to hear. It shows some degree of a conscience, turning himself in, but it's like humanizing a monster. This can't redeem him," said Marc FINKELSTEIN, who was jogging with his wife, Simone. "This has paralyzed the neighbourhood. It used to be such an active neighbourhood. It's nice to know all this is finally over."
Ms. TORTI said she had been unable to stop worrying about her daughter, who is living at home while studying at the University of Toronto.
"I don't go to sleep until she's in," she said. "She's 23, but honest to God, I don't go to sleep."
About 100 kilometres northeast of the neighbourhood, human remains that York Regional Police say likely belong to Ms. ROSS, were discovered.
Helicopters whirled overhead, police and Ontario Provincial Police tracker dogs scoured the bush and thick bull rushes over a wide area north and south of Highway 7. But the focal point of the search appeared to be just south of the town of Manilla bisected by Highway 7.
Near the intersection of Simcoe Street and the Seventh Concession, police tape surrounded a rectangle of thick, damp brush less than three metres from the roadside. Under a broiling sun, police with weed whackers cut thick grass and carried it to a York Regional Police forensic truck.
An officer said his colleagues had been there since early morning.
The seven-hectare (28-acre) property has been for sale since the beginning of the month, with an asking price of $139,900 and nobody was more surprised to see the flurry of activity than listing agent Audrey GRIFFIOEN.
"This is terrible, I can't believe it," she said, explaining that the property -- partly farm land and partly environmentally protected -- had recently had a conditional purchase offer.
"He's got to be a real sicko, the guy who did this," she said. "Killing is bad enough, but hacking up and spreading body parts all over the countryside.... I'll bet you he just stopped in his car and chucked it."
Also dismayed was 23-year-old Melissa NEWBERRY, whose parents own an 11-hectare (43-acre) parcel of dense brush just north of Highway 7, where more searching was under way.
"It's kind of scary," she said, recounting a recent incident in which she was jogging along the road. She said "some creepo in a yellow car," whom she described as a blond-haired man about 30 years old, appeared to be watching her.
She was advised to report the encounter to one of the numerous police officers in the area.

Cancer patient and father of two dies at 29 after months of battling eviction
By Timothy APPLEBY, Wednesday, October 5, 2005, Page A13
A 29-year-old Toronto cancer patient whose battle against eviction stirred a wide response from Globe and Mail readers this summer died Monday night in Sunnybrook hospital.
A tow-truck driver until testicular cancer struck a year ago, Tim ELLISON had been weakened by a bout of pneumonia, said his long-time friend, Jodi LUCK, who set up a trust fund for the many donations that were made. Other help came in the form of offers of accommodation.
With no savings and few resources beyond a monthly disability cheque for $959, Mr. ELLISON lived in a rundown Keele Street apartment from which his Thornhill landlady, Marsha SWITZER, had tried to evict him for failure to pay rent.
A father of two young children, Mr. ELLISON could barely walk and spent his last days on a regime of chemotherapy and morphine. Home nurses visited to bathe him, clean the intravenous apparatus attached to his chest and provide other care.
He was "overwhelmed" by the public response to a story in July outlining his plight, Ms. LUCK said yesterday.
"He would want everybody thanked. He was unbelievable right up to the end," she said. "I would never have thought a young guy like him could have faced up to something like this without whining about it. But he never did."

John Miles " Jock" APPLETON
By Mary APPLETON, Tuesday, August 23, 2005, Page A14
Environmentalist, agrologist, gardener, businessman. Born June 7, 1912, in Winnipeg. Died May 27 in Toronto, of old age, aged Our father was brave. We all saw this bravery when we were young, as children do. It wasn't until middle age, after we tried to walk some of the same paths, that we had an inkling of the real bravery required to lead such a long life. As a teenager growing up in the High Park neighbourhood of Toronto in the 1920s, he wanted to be an actor. His financially expert father, a journalist with the Financial Post and later secretary to an evolving association of insurance companies and banks, sternly persuaded him of the practical merits of business. While his drama became a passing hobby, he finished his master's degree in agricultural science in 1937 at the University of Aberystwyth in Wales following his 1935 undergraduate degree at the Ontario Agricultural College (now the University of Guelph). He emerged as an expert in grasses and their nutrient value for livestock and people.
As a young general manager of The Greenmelk Co in Wallaceburg, Ontario, he applied his knowledge of dehydrated grasses to the production of animal feed. Little was known about vitamins in the 1930s, but our brave father collaborated with a well-known authority on raising chickens from the University of Missouri, and American Dairies Co., to combine grasses and dried milk. This proved to be a huge advancement in animal nutrition, particularly when fed to chickens to encourage year-round egg production when previously they had produced only in warm months.
Jock also knew that grasses were important for maintaining precious soil nutrients. He courageously faced hostile and scoffing western farmers when he publicly challenged them to stop the wind and soil erosion caused by plowing. He became an outspoken conservationist long before it was a public issue. As president of the Ontario Agricultural College alumni in 1949, he and his fellow alumni executives organized a pivotal meeting on conservation that included business leaders and Canadian premiers. Shortly after this meeting, Ontario established its first conservation authorities.
He moved on to bigger agricultural business in the Peterborough-based Quaker Oats Co., then back to his Toronto roots at Maple Leaf Mills, from which he retired in 1977. Even after retirement, and well into his 80s, he continued to staunchly advocate for conservation and agricultural issues, writing letters in longhand (or typed by willing relatives). While not a religious man, he often referred to St. Francis of Assisi, patron saint of animals and the environment, for added inspiration.
Perhaps his bravest challenges were in his personal life. He married a smart, university educated woman then asked her to live on a farm and raise five children (David, John, Tim, Mary, Chris.) Monnie (Mary HILL, who died in 1996) made it her job to understand parenting until mental illness intervened. Jock's career aspirations were sidelined as he tried to maintain a home, put five children through university, and cope with an ailing spouse.
His refuge was the Sturgeon Lake cottage he had bought from his mother, where he produced spectacular gardens and trees from truckloads of imported soil; he continued to play tennis on the original dirt court. After retirement, he spent all the warm months here, where he watched his flowers and visiting grandchildren flourish. At 90, he endured the toughest role for any parent: burying his son Tim, a well-loved Anglican minister in Halifax, and father of four.
On May 27, Jock APPLETON's fight against the debilitating effects of old age came to a peaceful end. His ashes were buried in an environmentally friendly clay pot on June 10, three days after his 93rd birthday.
Mary APPLETON is Jock's daughter.
