Sault man killed in hit and run on Walpole Island
By Marissa NELSON and Jonathan SHER, Free Press reporters
A man walking along a road on Walpole Island was killed early yesterday when he was struck by a van whose occupants got out after the collision, then drove away, police say. Elvis SWANSON, 37, of the Sault Ste. Marie area, was pronounced dead at the scene of the hit and run, Lambton Ontario Provincial Police said.
A 22-year-old Walpole Island woman has been charged with criminal negligence causing death and failing to remain at the scene of a collision.
She was being held in custody yesterday awaiting a bail hearing.
The woman was arrested after she told Walpole Island police the van had been stolen, a claim that proved false, police said.
witnesses: told police they saw at least four people get out of the silver van after the crash, then get back in before the van took off.
"They got out and realized what happened, then sped away," Lambton Ontario Provincial Police Const. John REURINK said.
SWANSON was walking on Altiman Road, near South Creek Road, when he was hit just before 2 a.m., police said.
There are no sidewalks on the rural road.
A van matching the description of the one that hit SWANSON was found in a cornfield five kilometres away.
Forensic investigators are doing tests on the van, REURINK said.
Walpole Island police have enlisted the help of Lambton Ontario Provincial Police, Ontario Provincial Police technical traffic collision investigators and the forensic identification unit.
Last year, Lambton County racked up 21 traffic deaths, up from the usual 13 to 15 a year.
"Last year, it was bad," REURINK said. "It was a spike, but most could be attributed to driver error, alcohol or drug use. It was one of those years."
REURINK said despite yesterday's tragedy, he hopes the pattern doesn't repeat itself in 2005.

FROST, Richard Matthew
After a courageous battle with cancer, it is with great sadness, that we announce the passing of Richard Matthew FROST at Princess Margaret Hospital on June 28, 2005. Matthew was the beloved husband of Lorena (SWANSON,) cherished son of Richard and Nancy, dear brother of Jonathan and Carolyn (Jeff). Matthew was born in Hamilton, but spent most of his youthful years in Brampton. In 1989 he moved with his family to Winnipeg, where he attended Kelvin High School followed by graduation from University of Manitoba in 1994 (Political Studies) and 1998 (Recreation Studies). Matthew loved sports in any form. Throughout his life, he played hockey, baseball, golf, football and swam competitively. Always a passionate sports fan, he spent his professional life doing what he loved best - working first for the Manitoba Moose and then for the Toronto Maple Leafs. Matthew was full of dreams and aspirations with plans to ultimately build a career in sports journalism. He also took great pride in his wife Lorena and was able to celebrate the completion of her requirements for the C.M.A. designation a few days before he died. In the words of his brother, Matt's life was filled with love, success and the companionship of great Friends. It's not the story that's sad, just the ending. Matthew will be missed by his grandfather and wife, Walter and Helen ALLUM and his grandmother, Agnes FROST. Matthew was loved by his many aunts, uncles and cousins, particularly, Ryan and Sean JACKSON. Matthew was predeceased by his grandfather, Lorne FROST. We thank our family, many Friends, and Matt's colleagues for their support over the past 5 months. We want to also acknowledge the effort by the medical professionals at Princess Margaret Hospital.

(December 10, 1924 to April 14, 2005)
It is with heavy hearts and deep sorrow that her family announces the passing of Mavis Maxine Joyce SWARBRICK. After a life of sickness and operations and then cancer in 1999, she passed away in Mount Sinai Hospital. Beloved wife of the late Harry SWARBRICK, March 11, 1923 to May 11, 1989. The second youngest daughter of the late Juanita Violet (SEDDON) and John JOYCE of Toronto. Mavis survived all of her siblings, brother James Henry "Marlow" JOYCE, and sisters "Wynne" Florence Amelia Joyce GILCHRIST, Juanita Valerie Joyce HARRIS, Joan Yvonne JOYCE, and Coral Dawn "Blossom" Joyce POLLOCK. Survived by her daughters Heather SWARBRICK and Valerie and son in law Ralph MacKENZIE. Special thanks to Louise ATKINS and Elka RUDOLPH for their visits and kindness, over the years. Manuel and Sandy who brought such happiness to her sister Blossom and herself, your visits and calls brightened her days. Thank you also to her Friends and neighbours in San Diego. I know that you were all sad to see her leave San Diego last summer, she was just as sad to leave and give up her home and happy memories there. Thank you to the doctors and nurses in the emergency department and those on the 12th floor of Mount Sinai Hospital for your kindness (Sunday April 10, 2005 to Thursday April 14, 2005.) Mavis' father was a fireman for the city of Toronto and she seemed to meet firemen wherever she went and at the end it was firemen who carried her to the ambulance that took her to the hospital. She felt comfort in that it was like her father was carrying her as he had so many times when she was a sick child. So, to those gentlemen and the paramedics - thank you. Before her marriage Mavis worked for the Steel Company of Canada to aid the war effort and was a long distance operator for Bell Canada. Mavis was a stay at home Mom, who always put her family first. She had a beautiful voice and loved to sing, especially to her family. Mavis was a kind and caring person who helped everyone in any way she could. She had a gift for writing beautiful letters to people to ease their sorrows or brighten their days. Many young people have called her Mom over the years. We are comforted in our sorrow knowing that she is with her beloved Harry and family. She will be missed by family and Friends who knew and loved her. As per her wishes there will be no funeral service. The cremated remains of Harry and Mavis will be laid to rest together in Riverside Cemetery. A memorial service will be held at a later date. Those wishing to, may make donations to the Heart and Stroke Foundation or the Cancer Society.

DESANTIS, Gloria Ann (née SWARTMAN) (1936-2005)
At the age of 69 years, Gloria joined her mother Margaret, father Eldon, and brother Gary into Glory on Saturday, October 22, 2005 at the Sarcee Hospice in Calgary, Alberta. Born on March 7, 1936, Gloria grew up on Bleeker Street in Toronto with her brothers Norm, Ron and Gary. This home was full of a whole lot of fun and love. The Swartman residence was the place to be for the kids in the neighbourhood, always enough room for one more at dinner. As Gloria grew into a stunning young lady, she began an exciting social life; she loved to dance, sing, and enjoy the resort life at the lakes in Northern Ontario. During Gloria's travels in the fifties she had many adventures, created lifelong memories and met a group of Friends that would remain throughout her life. Gloria worked as a Receptionist for much of her life, but for quite a few years worked in Classified Sales for the Mirror (Scarborough) with a group of amazing women. Gloria moved to Calgary in 1993. She continued her passion for the outdoors frequently hiking and camping in the mountains. She began a new career with ING Insurance and retired in 2001. Gloria is survived by her son Carl; his wife Beverley; and their daughters, Brittany, and Maddison. Her youngest son Larry lives in Sunderland, Ontario with Kim and their sons, Kyle, Tyler, and Adam. Gloria will also be missed by her extended family, Wendy Ayres, Morgan, and Wade. Gloria's family gave her the most pleasure; to watch them succeed, excel and enjoy life gave her the greatest joy. Gloria was a pillar for her family; providing them with unconditional love, pride and support. When her grandchildren competed in any event, Gloria always attended and was their "Number One Fan." Gloria will be laid to rest with her mother and brother in a private ceremony at the Mount Pleasant Cemetery in Toronto, on Wednesday, October 26, 2005 at 1: 00 p.m. If Friends so desire, memorial tributes may be made directly to the Canadian Cancer Society, or to the Salvation Army.
