Standoff ends when police find body
Highway 21 blocked for about eight hours
By Scott DUNN, Tuesday, June 28, 2005
People who knew Frank KUNKEL were shocked to learn he was found dead, apparently by gunshot in his home, after a lengthy standoff with police that began Sunday evening.
The standoff also forced dozens of Allenford residents to wait for hours behind roadblocks at both ends of the village Sunday night. They went up about 4: 30 p.m., blocking the busy provincial highway, and stayed up until about midnight, by one estimate.
About 50 people waited in the parking lot of Drifters Restaurant Sunday evening for news. There was speculation that KUNKEL must have shot himself, though police have not confirmed his death was suicide.
The Ontario Provincial Police issued a news release saying police responded about 4: 19 p.m. Sunday to a report of an armed, barricaded person on Elizabeth Drive. Ontario Provincial Police negotiators attempted to negotiate with KUNKEL, police said. The Ontario Provincial Police tactics and rescue unit entered KUNKEL's home about 10: 59 p.m. and found him dead “of what appeared to be a gunshot wound,” the statement said.
KUNKEL's body was removed Monday morning from the white stucco two-storey house at the northwest corner of Elizabeth and Highway 21 in Allenford. Forensic investigators attended the scene later in the day.
The Special Investigations Unit, a civilian police investigation agency, is involved because the area was secured by the police at the time, the police news release said.
Two Special Investigations Unit members were at the house Monday morning. Bruce Peninsula Ontario Provincial Police detachment commander Mario BARTENS referred all media questions to the Special Investigations Unit. No one from the Special Investigations Unit returned a call from The Sun Times Monday afternoon.
People in Allenford said Monday the 59-year-old KUNKEL they knew smiled easily, always waved and was a “happy-go-lucky” fellow.
KUNKEL, who had worked performing winter maintenance along Highway 21, lived in the house with his wife, Marilyn. They have three grown children, two girls and a boy. Neighbours didn't think the children lived with their parents. One son and one daughter were believed to be among those waiting in the parking lot at Drifters Sunday night.
Neighbour accounts help piece the story together.
Allenford lawyer Richard EVANS lives east of the KUNKELs, about one block away by the United Church. Some time around 2 p.m. or so, he heard what he believed was a gunshot.
Fran GORDON, a realtor, was showing the house next door along Highway 21 to potential buyers about 4 p.m. They were standing on the back deck around 4: 30 p.m. when a neighbour came over and asked them to leave because of a family emergency.
GORDON said it was quiet and all appeared Okay, until she saw Marilyn KUNKEL, whom she's known all her life. “I did see her sitting at the side of the road. And she was hysterical. I saw that.” A neighbour took her away and GORDON left just before police arrived.
One neighbour who spoke to The Sun Times but wouldn't give her name, said KUNKEL drove by on his all-terrain vehicle just 30 minutes before police arrived, waving at his neigbours. “That's why everyone's so shocked because he seemed all right when he came by.&rdquo
She said the KUNKELs “kind of kept to themselves.&rdquo
GORDON said the KUNKELs helped out an elderly neighbour whose house GORDON is selling. The KUNKELs shoveled her snow and kept an eye on her. One of the KUNKEL daughters is due to be married in about one month, GORDON added.
“It's so unexpected, it threw everybody. But I guess you never know what goes on inside, behind closed doors,” said GORDON, who had spoken to the KUNKELs the day before in their yard.
At Drifters on Monday, Pat and Fred DAWSON said they knew the KUNKELs well. Marilyn worked at the restaurant for five years until she quit in March. They dined together and Frank KUNKEL often ate breakfast in the restaurant, at the eastern edge of Allenford.
Fred called Frank KUNKEL “happy-go-lucky” and considers his death “off-the-wall.” KUNKEL was a hunter who owned guns, Fred said. The KUNKELs recently bought all-terrain vehicles and the couple would go four-wheeling with family and Friends. Summers were spent in a trailer at Dreamaker Family Campgrounds, east of Allenford. The KUNKELs seemed at ease, the DAWSONs said.
“When we found out it was them, we were puzzled and a little confused because we just never thought it would be something like that,” Fred said.
Police took over the restaurant as their command post Sunday night. Negotiators used the empty store adjoining the restaurant.
Police officers, including some wearing camouflage with faces darkened with makeup, came and went from the restaurant while about 50 residents waited for hours in the parking lot, in their cars or on the grass across the highway.
About 300 people live in Allenford and many had been out Sunday afternoon. Police told people they couldn't go home because of some unspecified concern involving firearms.
Police helped people who were forced to wait behind the roadblocks.
One Allenford man with a heart condition told police he might need his medication at home. Police offered to go to Owen Sound to get him a new prescription, though it turned out not to be necessary. Police also snuck around Allenford to the back of one house to check on a teenaged girl home alone and found her all right, residents said.
Some people tired of waiting and found their own way home, sometimes on foot through a farm field.

BLOIS, Dorothy J.
In loving memory of Dorothy J. BLOIS who passed away August 14th, It broke our hearts to lose you
But you didn't go alone
For part of us went with you
On the day God called you home.
Your resting place we now visit
And place flowers there with care
But no one knows the heart ache
When we turn and leave you there.
No matter how we spend our day
No matter what we do
Before we close our eyes at night
We always think of you.
You are always in our thoughts, love Stephen and Rebecca BLOIS, Judy and Larry JEFFERY, Carol and Steve EVANS and Kenneth MacDONALD.

MOWAT, James Rodman
The children of James Rodman ('Rod') MOWAT would like to advise longtime Friends of his death, on Tuesday, April 12, 2005 in Santiago, Chile. Dad died peacefully, with his devoted wife of 25 years, Graciela Poblete DE_LA_CERDA ('Piti') by his side. He leaves his children - Anne, (Susan RISK,) of Regina, Saskatchewan Becky, of Charlottetown, Prince Edward Island; David, (Lina), of Ottawa, Ontario; Vicki, (Claude LEGER,) of North Bay, Ontario and Kati, of Ottawa, Ontario. He is also survived by his many grandchildren: Norah, Natalie, and James PENDERGAST in Charlottetown Austin, Bridget, and Cameron MOWAT in Ottawa; Alexandre and Eric LEGER in North Bay. He also leaves his sister, Nancy McLATCHIE (Bob,) of Skead, Ontario; niece, Barbara SNOWDEN (Ken) also of Skead, Ontario; nephews, Stuart McLATCHIE (Jo-Anne) of Sidney, British Columbia; and John McLATCHIE (Barbara BAILEY,) of Toronto. Dad was predeceased by his first wife, Marjorie Esther EVANS, of Fredericton, New Brunswick; and their daughter, Norah Patricia ('Patti'). He is also survived by his second wife, Mary Kathryn (WALSH,) of Ottawa, with whom he lived for many years. Dad was a strong and compelling man, whose sense of personal destiny was matched by a dry sense of humour and determination to live on his own terms. A mining consultant for many years, he joined the United Nations Development Program in 1968 to assess and develop base metal mining operations, primarily in Chile and Colombia. Eventually, he decided to retire to Chile, where he had fallen in love with Piti, and the spectacular beauty of the country itself. Until recent years, when his health began to fail, he and Piti travelled home to Canada often, visiting Friends and family. Born January 13, 1925 in Campbellton, New Brunswick, to Isabel Annie ('Nan' WETMORE) and Earl Porter MOWAT, he earned a B.Sc. in Geology from the University of New Brunswick, and later became a Professional Engineer in the province of Ontario. Dad felt he was a self-made man of the old school, driven to achieve in his career. In this, he succeeded. In many ways, Dad was a paradox: he called himself a 'citizen of the world' - anticipating the global village long before the internet. But he was pulled back to his roots in the Maritimes often to enjoy lobster feasts by the sea with his Canadian family and Friends. An intense and challenging man, he could be charismatic, charming, witty, and stimulating. He loved to engage others in deep conversations about politics, business, and history in two languages. Although he spent most of his life far from his children in Canada, he nonetheless exerted a powerful influence on us. A memorial celebration of the life of Rod MOWAT will take place in his beloved New Brunswick, however, the date has not yet been set. Friends and family may contact Becky by Email at mowat@eastlink.ca, or by telephone at (902) 569-9120, if you are interested in receiving an invitation to this gathering. In lieu of flowers, the family would appreciate donations made to the Heart and Stroke Foundation of Canada, 2360 - 2nd Avenue, Regina, Saskatchewan S4R 1A6, (306) 569-8433, in memory of James Rodman MOWAT.

EVANS, Victoria -- Dispatch:
By Oliver MOORE, Saturday, May 7, 2005, Page M4
Champion pie-maker Victoria EVANS sold the restaurant she ran with her husband more than 30 years ago, but her baking skills were remembered long after that.
Ms. EVANS's daughter, Dena NICOLOFF, recalls her mother working in the basement of Ted's Restaurant in East York, surrounded by mounds of flour as she made batches of pies, 60 at a time.
"My job when I would help her would be to take the fork and prick the pie crusts," she says, adding, "If you see me, you'll know that I also had lots of pie."
She wasn't the only fan of the pies, as several hundred people turned up at the funeral to remember her. It "was surprising because my mother's been ill for about 11 years and she's been out of the community," Ms. NICOLOFF says. "But a lot of people came because they all remember Vicky's pies."
Ms. EVANS died on April 19 at the age of 81, many years after having been diagnosed with Alzheimer's disease. Her recipe for pogacha, a Macedonian version of sweet egg bread, was handed out at the funeral home.
Born Victoria TENEKEFF in Toronto in 1924, she was a first-generation Macedonian Canadian who met her immigrant husband, now 91, while both were working at Eaton's. He was employed under the name Ted EVANS because he had found it too hard to find a job with the name Metody Gelentsoff IVANOFF.
The couple married in 1944 and opened the restaurant at Pape and O'Connor four years later, giving Ms. EVANS the chance to hone the baking skills she had learned from an uncle.
She won acclaim by snagging an honourable mention at a restaurant contest and by picking up awards from Black Creek Pioneer Village and the Robin Hood Bake Festival at Harbourfront.
"She loved her desserts," Ms. NICOLOFF says. "Even in the nursing home, if you couldn't feed her anything, she always liked ice cream or some kind of sweet."

Toronto jazzman played in legendary 1953 concert
Canadian Press, Thursday, June 16, 2005, Page S11
Guelph, Ontario -- Hartland WHEELER, who played with bebop giants DIzzy Gillespie, Charlie Parker, Bud Powell, Charlie Mingus and Max Roach at a legendary jazz concert in Toronto in 1953, died on Friday in Guelph, Ontario, of prostate cancer. He was 83.
Mr. WHEELER was born in Toronto but had lived in Guelph since Mr. WHEELER's mother bought him his first instrument -- a clarinet when he was 15. He mastered the clarinet and the tenor saxophone, his signature instruments over his 60-year career.
One of his greatest moments came on May 15, 1953, when he played with Mr. Gillespie and company in a now-legendary Massey Hall performance.
His career took off in the late 1940s when he was featured in Ellis McClintock's band.
Until he became ill in recent months, Mr. WHEELER continued to travel across Ontario in Jim Galloway's Wee Big Band and the Canadian Glenn Miller Tribute Band, of which he and lifelong friend Gordie EVANS were founders.

Bill LAFORGE, Hockey Coach: 1951-2005
He was a coach with good intentions, but his 'goon hockey' Ontario Hockey League methods were not suited to the National Hockey League. He lasted only 20 games behind the Vancouver bench
By Danny GALLAGHER, Special to The Globe and Mail, Saturday, June 25, 2005, Page S9
Toronto -- If you played for Bill LAFORGE, you loved him. If you were an opposing player or coach, you hated him. If you were a league commissioner or president, you would wince at his methods to win games.
His legacy is mayhem hockey. More often than not in any game in which he was involved, the gloves came off and the penalty minutes soared. It was a successful tactic that won games in the Canadian major junior ranks. The bad-boy coach extraordinaire of his era, Bill LAFORGE and his boys were fabled for physical play, brawling and instilling fear in the opposition. It was called goon hockey.
Yet, his coaching also produced explosive offensive talent. Among his proteges were such future National Hockey League players as Keith Primeau, Mark Habscheid, Gary Leeman, Garth Butcher, Brad May, Tony Tanti, Rob Brown, Lyndon Byers, Shayne Corson, Ken Daneyko and Doug Bodger -- not to mention Barry Trotz, who has been head coach of the National Hockey League's Nashville Predators since their inception.
Mr. LAFORGE's success at the junior level led to a failed experiment as head coach of the National Hockey League's Vancouver Canucks. That, however, is not his legacy.
"His legacy is his success in junior hockey and how he loved his players and how his players loved him back," said Garth Butcher.
As a teenager growing up in Edmonton, Bill LAFORGE was like a lot of youngsters and enjoyed playing all sports. What made him different was that he excelled at hockey and football -- with a decided preference for the latter. As a bruising fullback, he starred for both Archbishop MacDonald High School and the Edmonton Huskies of the Prairie Junior Football League. He dreamed of suiting up in the Canadian Football League. In 1974, he seemed set to join the Calgary Stampeders. But he failed a physical at training camp.
"Bill had gotten hurt not long before while working on a construction site when he was hit in the head with a piece of concrete," said his cousin, Pat LAFORGE, the president of the National Hockey League's Edmonton Oilers. "That's why he didn't pass the physical."
His playing career over before it had really begun, Mr. LAFORGE plunged, instead, into coaching recreational hockey in Edmonton and at nearby Enoch, a Cree reserve where he was sports director. He must have been doing something right because a few years later, Sherry BASSIN, general manager of the Ontario Hockey League's Oshawa Generals, came calling. Mr. BASSIN had been searching for someone to replace Paul THERIAULT as coach for the 1980-81 season and knew something about a junior coach from Alberta who possessed winning ways. He returned home to Ontario and announced he had hired a no-name coach, something unheard of in the junior hockey world. Thus began Mr. LAFORGE's tumultuous career behind the bench.
"It was great perception on Sherry's part to see something in Bill," said Stew MacDONALD, who at the time was working for the Generals as an intern and as assistant to Mr. BASSIN.
"I had never heard of Bill until he sent us a letter with a resumé that wasn't that fancy," Mr. BASSIN said. "The resumé was half blotted out. So I met him in Vancouver when I was on business. His team had won a junior C championship somewhere in Alberta and I found him to be extremely enthusiastic."
All things considered, with an unknown calling the shots, no one expected the Generals to make the playoffs. To everyone's surprise, they did -- largely because of Mr. LAFORGE's tough-guy tactics. As the regular season wore on, his aggressive strategy earned a number of short suspensions for him and his players. But nothing compared to what happened one night in March of 1981 during the first round of the playoffs against the Peterborough Petes. It was in that series, one game specifically, that the LAFORGE legend began to take shape. In the pre-game warm-up, a shoving match developed on centre ice between Oshawa and Peterborough players. Dave DRYDEN, the Petes coach, tried to restore order. Mr. LAFORGE shot out of his office to investigate and discovered his opposite number among the players.
"Keep your hands off my players," he bellowed at Mr. DRYDEN. Within seconds, the two men were poking at each other's chest and screeching back and forth like two roosters at a cockfight. Not surprisingly, their behaviour did nothing to cool the players' tempers. Mr. LAFORGE was later reported to have had an altercation with Peterborough player Doug EVANS; but, as Mr. MacDONALD tells the story, the two coaches never actually traded blows.

Robert Gordon BELL, Physician: 1911-2005
Pioneering doctor who almost didn't make it through medical school turned a chance involvement with alcoholics into a life's calling to treat all manner of addictions
By Stephen STRAUSS, Special to The Globe and Mail, Thursday, June 30, 2005, Page S11
Toronto -- After word got out that Robert Gordon BELL, known to those who knew him as Gordon, had died at 93, an e-mail was sent to his family from a former patient. In it, the feelings of not just the writer but the tens of thousands of people whom Dr. BELL and his treatment had helped escape from addiction was summarized in a mental health koan.
"I learned from him that, yes, I was an alcoholic, but to be an alcoholic didn't mean I was a bad person," the man wrote.
It is something that the Ontario farmer's son, who turned a happenstance involvement with Toronto alcoholics in the 1940s into a life's calling to treat addictions of all sorts, would undoubtedly have relished. His personal motto, and one that he repeated daily to patients, was "it has been a privilege to have been of service."
What wasn't said, but implied, were the added words "when others find it such a privilege not to serve you."
The social context in which the ever-courtly Dr. BELL helped revolutionize the treatment of addiction in not just Canada but around the world was a medical disdain bordering on repulsion.
"He was a courageous pioneer, because he took on an area of medicine almost nobody at the time wanted to deal with," said Frank EVANS, long-time colleague and secretary of the Canadian Society of Addiction Medicine. "Doctors were both revolted and disgusted at a problem which they saw as self-inflicted. In what he did, Dr. BELL was almost the addiction equivalent of Father Damien, who provided an understanding and haven for lepers on the Hawaiian Island of Molokai."
Dr. BELL would later write that part of his sympathy for an addict's personal failures came from his own difficulties in becoming a doctor in the first place.
Born into a Scots Presbyterian family in the Southern Ontario town of Saint Mary's, Dr. BELL was inspired by his industrious Uncle Charlie -- a doctor who once held the North American record for the number of babies delivered in a year -- to go into medicine. But he was an indifferent student, and he failed medical school after his third year at the University of Toronto. While working in a smelting plant, he experienced what he would later call a transcendental release from fear of failure while watching the sun rise over Lake Erie. "I lost my fear of not being able to succeed, and I acquired a sense of direction in personal fulfilment," he would write in an 1989 autobiography.
He might have become self-assured, but he also had to struggle mightily to convince the University of Toronto to readmit him after a dean bluntly informed him: "Can you not appreciate that you have neither the intelligence nor the emotional stability to graduate in medicine and succeed as a physician." In a way, that set the tone for his subsequent dealing with authority -- he refused to leave until a second opinion was obtained from someone who saw the good doctor lurking within the previous failure.
Dr. BELL's first entree into social-psychiatric medicine came during the Second World War when he worked in the Canadian Army with soldiers traumatized by their war experience. Having found this interesting, and sure that his lack of an obstetrics background would doom him in general practice, he opened up a clinic in his home for -- in his words -- the "emotionally disabled."
At the time, he assured his wife, who already had given birth to two of his five children, that "the worst we could expect would be three or four nervous old ladies as guests. I had no idea at the time our only patients would be alcoholics." Not only that, but among them would be one who returned to the house after going on a bend with the express purpose of beating Dr. BELL to a pulp.
Reflecting a Canada in which alcoholics were viewed as the bane of a medical practice, Dr. BELL quickly found that there was almost nothing in the medical literature describing how you dealt with people who drank too much. Out of the personality jumble of the patients who came to him -- business successes, failures, the violent, the passive, the neat, the messy -- grew the notion that, to treat addiction, you had to treat the whole person in a caring community. A singularly important feature of this, and one that went against the thinking of the time, was that an alcoholic was an alcoholic for life and there was no possibility of going back to social drinking.
To this was grafted what were, for the time, revolutionary alcoholism drug treatments, most notably Antabuse, a medication that made anyone sick who drank alcohol afterward. To ensure they would truly be of service to their patients, Dr. BELL and another physician first tried the substance on themselves. The result was a near overdose wherein Dr. BELL's blood pressure and pulse rate fell to almost zero and he came close to dying. Later, he and a fellow doctor would invent and again self-test Temposil, an anti-drinking drug with fewer side effects. They also came up with a body-weight scale that allowed you to estimate how much you could drink without getting drunk.
Dr. BELL's interest in addiction -- he had soon learned that many of his alcoholic patients were addicted to barbiturates and other drugs -- led him to found a number of clinics and hospitals in the Toronto area. The establishment of these facilities was viewed by the authorities of the day with considerable suspicion. Indeed, so wary was the Ontario Medical Association of his activities that it secretly sent a couple of doctors to check out his clinic. In the words of one of the investigators, the Ontario Medical Association suspected that Dr. BELL was "some kind of medical racketeer out to make a fortune by sobering up wealthy drunks."
Making money would have surprised both his bank managers and his family. "He always paid himself last," said Ron BELL, one of his sons.
Soon, Bell clinics in their various incarnations were seen as the best places in North America for people to have a chance at least to stop being alcoholics. And rich Americans, notably Henry Clay Ford, grand_son of Henry Ford, and Harvey Firestone Jr., of the Firestone tire family, soon arrived for treatment. They both ended up sitting on the board and contributing money toward the operation of the Donwood Institute, the first public hospital in North America specifically designed to treat addictions.
Of particular pride to Dr. BELL was the more than half-a-million dollars contributed by former patients -- the "hopeless characters," according to those who turned them away -- to the Donwood. The success in Canada spurred the development of similar institutions in the United States, one of which treated Betty Ford, the wife of former U.S. president Gerald Ford. It became the template for the Betty Ford Center in California.
But life's accomplishments don't always capture the character of a man. Dr. BELL was, say those who knew him, someone who transcended his background. The child of the old Protestant Ontario embraced in his practice the multiplicity of the multiculturalism of its present. "He was very ecumenical," said University of Toronto professor Harold KALANT, who had known him since medical school.
As an example, Toby LEVINSON, a psychologist who worked with him since the 1960s, reported the reaction of a native woman when Dr. BELL took his family on a tour of the Donwood. "Dr. BELL was here with his family; he came right over and talked to me. Can you imagine Dr. BELL talking to a drunken Indian?" she asked in amazement.
His final accomplishment may have been the incorporation of his children in his vision of a caring community for addicts. Both his daughter Janice and his daughter Linda ended up working at Bellwood Health Services, a residential centre he helped found to treat not only drug and alcohol addictions but also gambling, sexual manias and eating disorders.
In the end, Gordon BELL's life finished in a full circle. He was buried in the graveyard of the church in Saint Mary's where he had worshipped as a child, and where his childhood minister had emphasized the need for lifelong learning. What killed him was a heart attack, which he diagnosed to a caregiver even as he was dying. "A good clinician to the last," said Ron BELL.
Robert Gordon BELL was born in Saint Mary's, Ontario, on November 11, 1911. He died of a heart attack in Toronto on June 15, 2005. He was 93. He is survived by daughters Janice HAMBLE, Linda BELL and Mary BELL- PLOUFFE and by sons Ronald and Brian. His wife, Mary, died in January of 1994.

EVANS, Brian
"Free to Soar"
He is not dead -- but only flying higher,
Higher than he's flown before,
And earthly limitations will hinder him
No more,
For he is universal,
Like courage, love and hope,
And all free sweet emotions,
Of vast and godly scope,
So all loved ones, dry your eyes,
Yes, it is wrong that you should grieve,
For he would want you to believe,
He is not dead,
You should have known,
That he is only flying higher,
Higher than he's ever flown.

RADFORD, Joanne
Passed away at home on December 15th, 2005. Born on May 29, 1946 in Winnipeg, Joanne also made Montreal her home before moving to Toronto in 1972. While in Montreal, Joanne met her life partner and husband, Walter NOE, who deeply mourns the passing of his "Jo-Jo". A vibrant and unique personality, Joanne attacked life with equal parts flamboyance and keen intelligence. She was well suited in her work, first in theatre, then as political activist and later as Executive Director. Many on the "other side of the table" found her to be a formidable adversary. In addition to managing Federal and Provincial election campaigns from Nova Scotia to British Columbia, Joanne was instrumental in founding two professional associations. She was intensely interested in and supportive of her family and many, many Friends. Even the challenge of failing health over the past ten years, which she coped with gallantly, couldn't extinguish her ability to meaningfully engage in the lives of others. Joanne is predeceased by her parents, Norman and Joan RADFORD and her brother, Gerald. She will be greatly missed by her step-mother T. Joan RADFORD, her Uncles Leonard RADFORD (Shirley) and Trevor WEBER, her cousins Carole CLARK, Moira EVANS (George), Ken WEBER (Mary), Douglas RADFORD (Bev) Allison LOGAN (Art,) her sisters-in-law Esther NOE and Linda MARSCHALL, her Nephew Zack RADFORD, and by Dr. Janusz DUKSZTA. Cremation has taken place, and at Joanne's request, there will be no funeral service. Instead, a celebration of Joanne's life will be held in January. Donations can be made in her name to Amnesty International.

Stabbings kill woman, 62, injure daughter
Neighbours watch in horror through patio door as woman attacked
By Patrick EVANS, Staff Reporter
A Toronto family that spans five generations has to find a way to go on without their "Nana" after she was stabbed to death in an incident that also left her daughter critically injured.
The man who attacked them was shot dead minutes later by Toronto police.
Just before that, a teenage girl described by family members as the dead woman's granddaughter escaped death when a group of neighbours fought off the attacker's attempt to drag her back inside a townhouse at 1898 Sheppard Ave. W. near Jane St.
Pandora WHITE/WHYTE, 62, was killed late Friday in her home by her adoptive brother, Ucal LAUZON, 34, family members and neighbours said as they gathered outside the home yesterday.
"We lost the major link to a chain, the major source to a family that stays together," said Kathleen MILLINGTON, a family member who spoke to the Star outside the neat townhouse where WHITE/WHYTE lived with her granddaughter, Rochelle.
Horrified neighbours watched shortly after 10: 30 p.m. Friday as the man they identified as Lauzon, described by family members as an adoptive brother, stabbed WHITE/WHYTE's daughter Marcia ALLYNE, 37, just metres away on the other side of a glass sliding door.
A neighbour who wanted to be identified only as Kevin said he couldn't see a knife, but Lauzon struck Allyne repeatedly with an object.
"(Allyne) fought (back)," Kevin said. "I really respected that."
Minutes later, Lauzon was shot dead by police officers who arrived on the scene, neighbours said. He was pronounced dead at Sunnybrook hospital early yesterday.
Neighbours in the townhouse complex said they heard officers shout to Lauzon to drop his weapon several times before he was shot.
The provincial Special Investigations Unit, which probes civilian deaths involving police, is taking over the investigation.
A press release from the Special Investigations Unit said police officers arrived at approximately 11: 02 p.m. and found Allyne lying outside the house with "serious stab wounds."
"A Toronto Police Service officer was involved in a confrontation with a 34-year-old man, resulting in shots being fired."
Allyne is in critical condition at Sunnybrook Health Science Centre.
MILLINGTON told reporters WHITE/WHYTE was a "law-abiding citizen" and said the incident had nothing to do with drugs or any other kind of crime. "... I want that stated," she said.
Neighbours said Rochelle was in the house when the violence started and tried twice to get out.
The first time Lauzon dragged her back inside in front of horrified onlookers.
When she escaped a second time, she was taken inside the home of neighbour Zolikha WARDAK, whose family phoned 911.
"She was (covered) in so much blood, I thought she was hurt, too," WARDAK said.
Rochelle told her she had been in her bedroom when she heard an argument downstairs, WARDAK said.
The teen said she ran down to find WHITE/WHYTE on the couch, covered in blood.
Rochelle told WARDAK she had blood on her because she ran to WHITE/WHYTE and hugged her.
The teen told WARDAK that Lauzon was there and she tried to get away from him.
A neighbour who asked not to be identified said he was in his yard when he heard Rochelle screaming.
"I saw her come out," he said. "She came to us... She was trying to slide behind us."
He said Lauzon came out after her. "She started running. He was trying to grab her."
Rochelle tripped and fell, he said, and Lauzon dragged her inside.
"Moments later, she ran out again. So this time, we defended her."
He said that about half a dozen men from the neighbourhood formed a barrier between Lauzon and Rochelle.
Lauzon gave up and went back into the house, he said. Some of the men ran to WHITE/WHYTE's door and tried unsuccessfully to get inside.
WHITE/WHYTE was a registered nurse who worked with senior citizens, said Annette WALTERS- MILLINGTON, one of her three daughters.
WHITE/WHYTE also leaves her mother, 77, five grandchildren and three great-grandchildren.
WHITE/WHYTE had lived in the community for more than 20 years and was loved by everyone, said a distraught Annette WALTERS- MILLINGTON, WHITE/WHYTE's daughter.
"Anybody that knows her calls her Nana...," Kevin said. "That's what we called her, out of respect."

Victoria EVANS, 81: Baker left a recipe to savour
Vicky EVANS was known for her fresh pastries
Ran restaurant with her husband for 20 years
By Catherine DUNPHY, Obituary Writer
At Victoria EVANS's funeral on April 25, her daughters passed out her recipe for pogacha, a Macedonian egg bread that won her a first prize at a long-ago Robin Hood Bake Festival and which she always gave out to all her Friends and relatives every Easter and Christmas.
But both Dena NICOLOFF and Gina EVANS say it should have been the recipe for one of their mom's pies, especially her fat and filling apple pie, which won her a first-place ribbon, this time from Black Creek Pioneer Village.
Vicky, as she was often called, was known all over East York and beyond -- for her pies. With her husband, Ted, she owned, worked in and lived above Ted's Restaurant, which anchored the corner of Pape Ave. and O'Connor Dr. for 20 years until it was sold in 1969.
She was up every morning before 5 a.m. to open the restaurant, a cheery morning person who greeted her regulars with a big smile and a steaming pot of coffee.
At 7, when her husband came down to take over, she went upstairs with breakfast for her kids. "Seven bells," she'd say to John, Dena and Gina as she served up dollar-sized pancakes, or French toast, or poached eggs, always garnished with fruit, little touches of her artistry.
The kids off to school, she'd clean up the apartment, throw in a load of laundry and head back downstairs by 9: 30 a.m. Often she would go straight down to the basement where she'd hand roll pastry.
Ted's Restaurant was known for Ted EVANS's steak and kidney pies, but it was famous for Vicky EVANS's apple, cherry, lemon meringue, raisin, coconut cream, banana cream, cherry cream with peaches, blueberry, blueberry cream rhubarb and pumpkin pies.
But especially the coconut cream and apple pies.
A supporter of her Macedonian culture and of every Macedonian church in town, she would always bake an extra 20 or 30 pies for their church bazaars.
"People would wait for her to enter with her pies and they would start buying them before she had even reached the bake table," NICOLOFF said. "There would be shouting: 'I want one of Vicky's pies!'"
An uncle who was a chef as well as a fruit grower in the Niagara Peninsula taught her how to make pies, but EVANS was creative, always experimenting with her recipes. Neither daughter has figured out how to replicate their mother's winning formula.
"Because they were in the restaurant business, the recipes were in quantity, calling for things like three bushels of apples and 20 pounds of sugar," said Gina EVANS.
She is searching for a computer program that reduces recipes appropriately so she can collect her mother's recipes that made 60 pies at a turn, amend them and make a book out of them in her memory.
"I want to call it 'Victoria's Table,'" she said.
There were always dozens, fresh and fragrant and ready for the lunchroom rush.
When word got out that the EVANS were retiring and selling their restaurant, a group that called itself "the morning gang" presented Vicky EVANS with a large, engraved trophy.
"To Vicky," it read. "The sweet gal/who lights our day/The best of luck/In every way."
Ted EVANS loved the restaurant business, was a good cook and "believed in filling the plate," NICOLOFF recalls, but he was never a people person.
"It was because of my mother we had customers," Gina EVANS said.
When they were younger, the children worked in the restaurant too. They all started out washing dishes, cutting the eyes out of the potatoes before throwing them in the cutter, scraping leftovers into the slop pail -- which went to a local farmer and the fat from the grill into a container which was sold to a company that manufactured cosmetics.
John, who is a lawyer, was a waiter and a short order cook; Gina, who has an M.B.A., also waited on tables, but Dena, who became a teacher, stayed in the basement operating the potato peeling machine and helping her mother with the pies because she was always too shy to talk to the customers.
It was a hard life. Family time was in the pre-dinner lull at 4 p.m., when both parents would retreat upstairs to the apartment. Ted EVANS would doze in his chair, Vicky EVANS would iron, the girls would watch The Edge of Night and The Secret Storm before starting their homework and practising the piano.
Their mother's day was usually over, but Ted EVANS stayed up every night to close the restaurant at 2 a.m. and drive his staff home. The restaurant was open from 7 a.m. till 2 a.m. every day of the year except for Christmas Day.
Victoria "Vicky" TENEKOFF met her future husband, then known as Metody GELENTSOFF, when both were working at Eaton's. When he couldn't get a job, GELENTSOFF changed his name to Ted EVANS and got hired to dye shoes. They married in 1944 and opened Ted's Restaurant four years later.
In the beginning, Ted's was nothing more than a counter and two tables at the front. Vicky EVANS took an accounting course and typed all the daily menus and the specials and the restaurant grew to seat 60, with booths and a family dining room at the rear.
Sometime before 1992, NICOLOFF realized something was wrong with her mother.
Her mother was entertaining guests and went to prepare the food. When NICOLOFF went into the kitchen, she found her mother standing in the middle of the kitchen unsure of what to do.
Victoria EVANS was diagnosed with Alzheimer's disease two years later.
Bedridden for the last five years, she had been unable to talk, although her daughters and daughter-in-law were always at her side, playing her favourite Macedonian folk songs.
In the 10 days before she died at age 81, the woman who lived up to the credo that you honour your guest with food could neither eat nor drink herself.

Boyfriend charged in toddler's death
Toddler found dead in wooded lot near Cambridge
Mother's boyfriend charged with first-degree murder
By Nicolaas VAN RIJN, Staff Reporter
The desperate search for a little boy just shy of his second birthday has ended with the discovery of his body in a wooded lot on the outskirts of Cambridge and the arrest of a man on a charge of first-degree murder.
Police found the body of 22-month-old Donny CLUBB in a wooded area between the Grand River and the Whistle Bear Golf Club early yesterday, but would not say what or who led them there.
"Those human remains we believe to be that of Donovan CLUBB," Waterloo regional police Insp. Bryan LARKIN told a news conference, adding an autopsy must still be done. "We're in the early hours of investigation at the crime scene."
The discovery left the little boy's parents devastated.
His mother, 21-year-old Courtney CATTON of Chatham, was in disbelief, her sister Britney said.
"It isn't real," Britney CATTON said. "It's one thing to lose your baby, but to lose him to murder is another thing. It's unexplainable. The only break that my sister had in so long was her kid. He's never gone from her side, ever."
Matt CLUBB, the boy's father, was in shock. "I can't believe this is happening," said CLUBB, 21. "It's like a bad dream and I'm waiting to wake up. But I can't.
"I don't want to believe that this has really happened, I just miss him so much."
CLUBB said police "won't tell us much... if he was buried or not... because they don't want it to interfere with their investigation."
Pam CLUBB, the boy's grandmother, was overcome with grief. "I have a picture of him in a bathtub, he looks so beautiful.... I've been looking at it and all I want to do is hold him, but I can't."
Donny, who had been the subject of a seldom-used province-wide Amber Alert after his mother reported him missing Thursday, was last seen a week ago, when his mother's 35-year-old boyfriend took him on what police believe was a fishing trip in Simcoe, where he has connections.
"Donny's mother was well aware that Donny was going to go away for a period of time," said Chatham-Kent Insp. George FLIKWEERT.
"What they did there, we're not 100 per cent sure, but they were there for several days."
Casey PETERS, who lives next door to the Kitchener house sometimes used by the boyfriend, said she saw a little boy she believes was Donny in a car with the man Monday.
"The kid looked content," PETERS said.
The fishing trip was to have ended Wednesday, and the boy's mother went to bed that night thinking he was back home.
When she found Donny missing Thursday morning, FLIKWEERT said, she called police, who began a missing person investigation at 10: 48 a.m.
Donny's mother told police her boyfriend returned home to their Chatham residence late Wednesday night, and told her that her son was sleeping in the basement of their home.
The man left at about 5: 30 a.m. Thursday, but when CATTON went to look for Donny later that morning she couldn't find him, and called police.
After the boyfriend was arrested in Kitchener on Canada Day, he was interviewed by detectives with the assistance of members of the Ontario Provincial Police's behavioural sciences unit.
"The investigation revealed the circumstances surrounding the death of Donny," Deputy Chief Jack CHAMBERS of Chatham-Kent police said.
Neighbours of CATTON said she had been living with Donny and her boyfriend on Edgar Ave., a quiet street on Chatham's south side.
Rosaire STERLING and his wife Ruth, who have lived on Edgar for 37 years, recalled seeing the energetic child playing in front of their home.
"He used to play right on the road, but my three granddaughters played in the back," Sterling said. "I used to holler at the mum to pull him in. It's a calm street, but there's still a bit of traffic.
"These people didn't cause any rumpus," STERLING added. "They were good people."
Neighbours and other well-wishers began placing flowers in front of CATTON's house, roped off with yellow police crime scene tape, shortly after the news of Donny's death broke yesterday.
Among those paying their respects were Brenda McKINLAY, her young son Zack and boyfriend Bob.
After she placed a single red rose and a small stuffed teddy bear in front of the house, her boyfriend paused and considered the little boy standing beside them.
"Zack's the same age as little Donovan," said Bob.
"It kind of hits home."
Donny's father, meanwhile, was struggling to cope with his loss.
"He was an energetic little boy, always moving, always smiling, always full of life," CLUBB said. "I'll never have the chance to see him grow up and be with him."
Donny's grandmother, too, thought of the good time that will never come again.
"When he would cry, I would take him to the kitchen window and he would look outside, and he would laugh, but that will never happen again," Pam CLUBB said.
Charged with first-degree murder is Shawn Tyler PALMER, who was arrested Canada Day on a warrant charging him with abduction.
He is to make an audio court appearance in Chatham on Wednesday.

Blood trail in slaying
By Jim WILKES, Staff Reporter
A bloody trail along more than 100 metres of carpeting shows how a Mississauga man ran for his life after he was stabbed in the fourth-floor hallway of an apartment building Wednesday afternoon.
Peel police are hunting for the killer of Lamar PHILIP, 22.
Homicide Insp. Jennifer EVANS said the dead man didn't live in the nine-storey building next to the Erindale GO station at Rathburn and Creditview Rds.
A trail of blood runs the length of the hallway through two sections of the complex. Larger bloodstains outside some apartments suggest the victim may have sought help as he fled.
Police believe the killer might also have been injured and may be seeking medical help.
Yesterday, police were canvassing apartments and searching the GO parking lot and nearby fire station property.
Hundreds of commuters were delayed Wednesday as police looked for the killer among the crowd of GO passengers.

'Big Lou' played hoods to the hilt
Comedian became familiar face on Canadian television
'Always a cigar in his mouth, like a gangster': Brother
By Patrick EVANS, Staff Reporter
As a professional wrestler, he made his opponents scream in pain. As a comedian with Wayne and Shuster, he made Canada scream with laughter.
Louis " Big Lou" PITOSCIA, the ultimate cigar-chomping bruiser, died peacefully last Thursday at the age of 76. His career saw him move from professional wrestling in the Maple Leaf Gardens of the 1940s to playing tough-guy roles in movies and television.
But he's best remembered for decades of sketch comedy send-ups of gangsters, hoods and prison inmates as a regular on Johnny Wayne and Frank Shuster's Canadian Broadcasting Corporation television show.
With his trademark fedora and cigar, PITOSCIA lived his bully image to the fullest. "Oh, big cigars he smoked. Always a cigar in his mouth, like a gangster," said his brother James, 78.
But PITOSCIA had no problem playing against type if it got a laugh. The men on Wayne and Shuster's show used to dress up in drag as an all-female band. The camera would cut to PITOSCIA on the piano, wearing a black dress with a frilly collar and brooch, a grey wig tied back in a bun -- and, of course, a cigar in his mouth.
At the funeral home yesterday, he lay in the casket with a rosary and a fresh cigar in his hands.
PITOSCIA was born to Italian immigrant parents in Toronto on November 11, 1928, one of five children. When he hit his teens, he was, as James put it, "a lot of trouble. He didn't take crap from anybody."
PITOSCIA figured out at a young age how to land a punch.
"I know at school he used to beat the kids up," James said. "Then the schoolteacher gave him a strapping. He stopped after that. He turned out to be a good guy."
During his wrestling career, PITOSCIA adopted a bad-guy persona in the ring. It was a good rehearsal for the series of hoods and gangsters he would play in his four decades as an actor.
When he retired from wrestling in the early 1950s, he weighed 280 pounds, had a 60-inch chest, a 48-inch waist, and a 19.5-inch shirt collar.
In a 1960 interview with the Toronto Star, PITOSCIA said his inspiration for leaving wrestling for show business was Mike Mazurki, a wrestler who jumped ship for Hollywood. In 1951, Mazurki invited PITOSCIA to Los Angeles. On that visit, PITOSCIA landed a bit part in the movie My Favorite Spy, starring Bob Hope and Hedy Lamarr.
For Big Lou, there was no turning back. "I was sort of a hood in it. I got killed," he told the Star. "Anyhow, that experience gave me confidence in my hidden talents, see."
But Hollywood couldn't seduce PITOSCIA. His family says he was determined to make it as an actor with Canada as his home base. It was something he had in common with Wayne and Shuster, who turned down offers in the United States, remaining defiantly Canadian throughout their careers.
PITOSCIA's work with Wayne and Shuster, including some appearances on The Ed Sullivan Show, led to more roles on television and commercials.
"The time I was on The Ed Sullivan Show," he said in 1960, "I had to get knocked through a lousy brick wall. Out of my pay, they took 53 bucks tax. Fifty-three bucks they charge to let you fall through a crummy wall."
PITOSCIA never worried about being typecast. "He was happiest when playing the godfather roles," said his niece, Rosemary CORRENTE.
It was a role he loved to play, even when the cameras stopped rolling. CORRENTE remembers as a young woman bringing a date over for dinner. She laughs at the memory of Uncle Lou sitting down with the young man and pulling out a switchblade.
"He started cleaning his nails with the switchblade and said, 'So, what are your intentions with my niece'?" CORRENTE said. "He never came back for dinner, that guy."
Relatives remember PITOSCIA for his hulking mass, booming voice and devotion to family. "As tough as he was, he had a big, soft heart," CORRENTE said.
Rosanna PICCININNI- FERRONI, another niece, said as a little girl she was always excited when Uncle Lou visited. "He would pick me up with one hand," he said. She would perch there on his giant open palm.
"He never had kids," she said, explaining why PITOSCIA showered a father's love on his nieces and nephews. "We always knew if we were in a bind, we could go to Uncle Lou."
PITOSCIA married in the 1960s. His wife Jill died about 30 years later. After she was gone, he wouldn't let anybody use her rocking chair. "Anybody who sat in it, he would say, 'Hey, that's my wife's chair,'" James said.
Back in 1960, when he finished that interview with the Star, PITOSCIA ordered the reporter back for one more word.
"You newspaper guys are always spelling my name wrong," he said. "It's P-I-T-O-S-C-I-A. It ain't Pistachio like you're always writing. That's a nut."
In addition to his brother James, PITOSCIA leaves a sister, Lucy PICCININNI. A funeral service will be held at 10 a.m. today in the chapel of The Simple Alternative Centre, 1535 South Gateway Rd., in Mississauga.

An 'unbelievable' loss
Families try to cope with gun slayings of two young men
Summer weekend began with a wedding and ended in death
By Henry STANCU and Patrick EVANS, Staff Reporters
More than 1,000 people are expected at an Etobicoke mosque this morning to mourn the deaths of two young men killed early Monday and to pray for Toronto's gun violence to end.
Loyan Ahmed GILAO, 23, and Ali Mohamud ALI, 19, will be honoured in a 9 a.m. service at the Khalid Bin Al Waliid mosque on Bethridge Rd. near Kipling Ave.
Last night, throngs of people visited, telephoned and emailed the two Friends' families in Etobicoke and Richmond Hill.
Mohamed GILAO, a prominent member of the Somali community in Toronto, described his son's death as "unbelievable" and the outpouring of condolences as "overwhelming."
"Every week, we had set aside one day to communicate as father and son, but lately Loyan has been busy; we didn't have that opportunity in the seven days before he died. That's the sad part," he said, weeping.
"My wife (Ayan OSMAN) is very strong for me and we are leaning on each other."
GILAO, a third-year York University commerce student, and ALI were celebrating with a group of Friends Sunday, the day after serving in the wedding party at a friend's marriage.
The two were gunned down after a night out at the Phoenix Concert Theatre on Sherbourne St. They were with a group of six to seven men, standing at the corner of Homewood Ave. and Maitland Place after leaving the nightclub.
A man walked toward them on Homewood and, without any words, pulled out a handgun and fired several times toward the group, police said.
ALI died from a gunshot wound to the head and GILAO died from a gunshot wound to the chest, an autopsy showed yesterday.
GILAO had been planning to announce his engagement to his girlfriend Zainab ALI in the coming months.
The elder GILAO, who has travelled several times on peace missions to his homeland, is a respected figure in both the Somali community and across Greater Toronto.
He was praised as a major "touchstone" in a community that transcends culture, religion and politics. Friends said the elder GILAO was given the Queen's Golden Jubilee Award two years ago and honoured with a Young Men's Christian Association Peace Medallion for helping people in his adopted community and homeland.
The couple, who immigrated to Canada from Somalia in 1990, have four daughters, 8 to 20.
In Richmond Hill, ALI's grieving family received relatives and Friends at their house. ALI's uncle, Ahmed JAMA, said that since Monday as many as 500 people had come to pay their respects.
About two dozen mourners stood outside the home last night, talking in small groups and keeping a quiet watch on ALI's father, mother and three sisters. Visitors pulled up in a steady stream of cars. Neighbours came on foot.
ALI's father, Mahamud JAMA, said his son moved to Vancouver eight months ago to chase his dreams. He said ALI dreamed big, with all the energy and optimism of a 19-year-old man who had just begun to make his way in the world.
"He had a lot of ambitions," JAMA said. "He was planning to open a business, his own trucking company. He would say, 'Dad, this is what I'm planning. I know I need to work hard.'"
JAMA said ALI came back two weeks ago for the wedding.
He made a full vacation out of his Toronto visit, arriving just in time for Caribana two weekends ago, spending time with his family and attending the wedding on Friday. JAMA said ALI's holiday was almost over when he was killed. "He had a rental car due Monday."
JAMA said his son wasn't involved in any gang or criminal activity. "My kid has never been with any gang," he said. "He was not violent. He had no record with the police."
The gun violence in Toronto has cost JAMA his only son, and he's furious about it.
"Get rid of the thugs who are killing innocents," he said. "We are grieving now. Every day another family is grieving. The city has to clear this sort of thing up. We have to get rid of these guns."
ALI was born 19 years ago in Hargeisa, Somalia. His family came to Canada when he was 2.
Police are seeking a man in his 20s, 5-foot-10 to 6 feet and 150 to 160 pounds, with black braids and a goatee. He was wearing jeans, a black T-shirt and a blue do-rag.

Born January 22, 1920 in Hamilton, Ontario, John EVANS passed away peacefully on December 8, 2005 at age 85. Predeceased by his loving wife of 58 years, Marguerite, and brothers Roy and Philip.

Survived by sister Win (husband Ed) and sister-in-law Kathryn (husband Roy). John began a 25 year career with the Royal Canadian Air Force in 1940 training on Gypsy Moth biplanes at Mt. Hope Airport where he graduated at the top of his class. Following his commissioning as a Pilot Officer, he served as a flying instructor before a tour of ops as a fighter pilot with the 418 Mosquito Squadron in England in 1943-44. John earned an Ace designation with this night intruder squadron which became the Royal Canadian Air Force's top scoring squadron in World War 2. After the War, he attended the University of Toronto graduating in Aeronautical Engineering in 1949. He returned to the Royal Canadian Air Force with postings at Namao, Alberta; Winnipeg, Manitoba; Royal Military College, Kingston; Greenwood, Nova Scotia and National Defence Headquarters, Ottawa. Following integration of the services in 1967, he took early retirement and joined Northwest Industries, a division of CAE, in Edmonton becoming their Vice President, Technology. In the last 8 years of his working career, he served as Dean of Science and Technology at Georgian College in Barrie where he and Marg spent many enjoyable times sailing on Lake Simcoe. Not one to retire completely, C.J. (as he was known) designed and built his own lakeside home near Picton, Ontario where they lived until moving to Toronto in 1986 to be closer to their kids and growing numbers of grandchildren. He continued to fly until age 75 and maintained a close association with his beloved 418 Mosquito Squadron buddies. In his own words, John "had a marvelous life."

Veteran reporter mourned
By Patrick EVANS and Amy BROWN- BOWERS, Staff Reporter
He was an old-school newspaper man who never got the hang of the tape recorder -- not when his hands moved fast as light, filling up notebook after notebook. But as hard as he went after hard news, there was always a touch of elegance in the words he wrote.
Journalists are mourning and sharing memories of Glen ALLEN, who died this week after a career that spanned decades and won him newspaper awards for his treatment of issues like human rights and suicide.
ALLEN, 65, was reported missing Monday from Toronto East General Hospital where he was being treated for depression, which he struggled with for decades. His body was discovered the next morning near some train tracks by Leslie St. and Lake Shore Blvd.
He was "a reporter of all trades," said longtime friend Carl MOLLINS, former executive editor at Maclean's magazine. "He could do... politics in Ottawa, (or) travelling around, just finding things that made a story of interest to other people, and then explaining it very well."
MOLLINS recalled a Maclean's series where ALLEN travelled across Canada in search of details to bring the inhabitants of different regions to life for his readers. In one town, "he got acquainted with a woman mail carrier, and he just followed her around. She talked to him about the town and the people and what they did," MOLLINS said.
"He had this incredible sympathy and compassion for the underdog," said ALLEN's brother, Gene.
MOLLINS said he and ALLEN met for coffee regularly, but the last time they were scheduled to meet, ALLEN didn't show. ALLEN said he was struggling with depression.
ALLEN, a reporter who always found the right words, was devastated that he was losing his vocabulary after a stroke.
"He had told me in some of our meetings that he was having trouble thinking of words," MOLLINS said. "I used to tell him I'm an old person, it happens to me all the time. But his was different and you could tell from the email that he was having trouble with language."
ALLEN worked for the Toronto Star in the late '60s before travelling to Chile. He spent a decade working sporadically for the Montreal Gazette and taught for two years in China. ALLEN worked at the Kingston Whig Standard and the Saint John Telegraph Journal then moved back to Toronto where he taught English as a Second Language classes until his death, MOLLINS said.
He had three children.

Star vet balanced tech, people skills
Heart attack strikes long-time employee at age of 69
Helped evolution from bulky computers to programming
By Patrick EVANS, Staff Reporter
Innovative, witty, full of love. It doesn't matter whom you ask, everyone describes Glenn EVERINGHAM the same way.
He thrived in an atmosphere of change. His legacy as a 30-year Toronto Star veteran was in bringing the circulation department up to speed in the age of technology, automating systems that hadn't changed in decades.
EVERINGHAM died of a heart attack December 14 at age 69 after receiving a clean bill of health from his doctor a few days before.
Born in Toronto on August 4, 1936, EVERINGHAM attended Givens Public School and Central Technical School. He kicked off his career at the Star in the payroll department in the mid-1950s. Those were low-tech days, when the office was full of cash and guarded by a man with a gun.
But when the first computers arrived at the Star -- lumbering giants that filled rooms -- he was fascinated by the possibilities they offered. He mastered the new technologies and moved on to a job in the data processing department as an information technology worker. But EVERINGHAM wanted to do more.
"He worked hard days and weekends at the Star, and he was working nights becoming a certified general accountant," said his second son, Adam, 43. In those years of working while going to school, EVERINGHAM's days were long. He would often sleep at the Star.
But the work paid off. He moved into the circulation department in the mid-to-late '70s and as controller in the department he revolutionized it with new technologies, said his oldest son, Mark, 47. EVERINGHAM brought in the Star's first subscriber database. He also brought in a computer program in the mid '80s that could tally how many papers had been sold. Prior to that it was all done with pen and paper, based on information the paper's truck drivers brought back at the end of their day.
Former colleague in circulation Martin THALL said small luxuries newspaper subscribers take for granted -- calling to suspend subscription when going on holiday -- were all new in EVERINGHAM's time. The technology he spearheaded made these things possible.
When he retired from the Star in the mid '80s, EVERINGHAM kept active as a computer programmer. In the months before his death he was still busy writing programs for the payroll department in Adam's business.
Another former colleague in circulation, Dave STEWARD/STEWART/STUART, recalled EVERINGHAM. " The man would sit there almost in silence at a meeting. You'd swear he'd fallen asleep, and then he'd suddenly come out with a profound statement that would send the meeting in a completely different direction."
But for all the technological savvy, co-workers and family remember him most for his humour and heart.
"He taught me the importance of respecting the people who work with you. That was more important than browbeating them," STEWARD/STEWART/STUART said.
Adam recalled a family friend with no relatives and no money who developed Alzheimer's disease. "My dad took care of him," Adam said. EVERINGHAM paid for the man to be in a home until he died almost five years later.
There was a lot of love in EVERINGHAM's life.
He met his wife, Tracy, in the mid '50s when, as a favour for a friend, he picked up Tracy and her mother in his car when they arrived in Canada from England. EVERINGHAM and Tracy said they fell in love at first sight and their relationship deepened throughout a 48-year marriage. "My mom used to sit with my dad every morning and have a tea before he went to work," Adam said.
Besides his wife and sons Mark and Adam, EVERINGHAM's leaves daughter Alison, 35, and five grandchildren.
The family shared memories of EVERINGHAM at a small service Tuesday.
