WILLIAMS, Margaret Ashwell (née CARSON)
Suddenly, at age 88, Margaret Ashwell WILLIAMS (née CARSON) at Belmont House, Toronto on Thursday August 18, 2005. Pre-deceased in 1994 by her husband D. Carlton WILLIAMS, Peggy leaves her daughter Catherine and her partner Austin COOPER of Toronto and son David of Abbotsford, B.C. Peggy was also the proud "Gran" of Carson (12) and Carter (10), whose many accomplishments brought her great pleasure.
Toronto born, she attended Bishop Strachan School on scholarship then the University of Toronto where she studied Library Science. It was at University of Toronto that she met a dashing teaching assistant named Carl who became her husband on November 20, 1943. Being wartime, Peggy was required to give up her job in the library. From then on, she devoted her considerable intelligence and energy to raising her children and supporting her husband's career as he rose through the academic ranks to become President and Vice-Chancellor of the University of Western Ontario in London. Lifelong patrons of the arts and cultural tourists before the term had been invented, Peggy and Carl never missed a season at Stratford and were frequent supporters of the arts in all of its diversity: symphony, opera, university productions, galleries and book groups. Peggy's intelligence and quick wit will be missed by book groups and at bridge tables in London and Toronto. We shall sorely miss her wise counsel in times of challenge and her unwavering sense of right and wrong. After cremation and a private interment, Peggy's life will be celebrated with a memorial service at First-St. Andrew's United Church, 350 Queens Avenue, London, Ontario at 3: 00 p.m., Tuesday, August 23, 2005. Peggy, and three generations before her, attended and served this wonderful church. For those unable to travel to London, a reception will be held in Toronto on Wednesday August 24, 2005 from 4 to 7 p.m. at the home of Judge W.E.C. COLTER, 9 Thornwood Road in Rosedale.

Homicide No. 13
By Kelly PEDRO, Free Press Crime Reporter
A Toronto-area man faces a second-degree murder charge after one man was shot to death and another injured in a pub parking lot early yesterday.
Dwayne PITTER, 23, of Vaughan, was charged yesterday with second-degree murder and attempted murder in connection with London's record 13th homicide.
PITTER is to appear in a London court today.
Joshua Kenneth WILLIAMS, 22, of the London area, was shot in the torso outside the Roxbury Pub and Grill at 1165 Oxford St. E. at 2: 20 a.m.
He died later.
Three people, including PITTER, were taken into custody. The other two were released, police said last night.
Detectives scoured the lot yesterday as they wrestled with a skyrocketing number of homicides this year.
Neighbours said they saw a crowd leave the bar about 2: 30 a.m., then heard screaming.
"I heard the gunshots and I saw someone go down. I thought it was firecrackers," said a woman who was standing outside the Roxbury near a variety store at the time. She did want to give her name.
"I heard two shots and I ran into the (variety) store."
Police said a dispute outside the bar led to the shooting.
Police and paramedics arrived to find WILLIAMS seriously hurt and another man shot in the arm. The second man was treated and released from hospital.
Police have recovered a handgun and are not looking for any more weapons, said Det. Andrew WHITFORD.
It's unclear whether WILLIAMS, the injured man and the three people in custody had just left the Roxbury when the shooting happened, WHITFORD said.
But there were about 40 people in the parking lot when a disagreement broke out, he said. Police are still probing the cause of the dispute.
WHITFORD said many witnesses: have come forward and bar staff have co-operated.
Roxbury staff declined comment yesterday.
Neighbours have complained of fights and loud noise after the bar's closing time.
"It's scary," said Brenda PARSONS, who lives in a nearby townhouse complex. "You don't need television to live in this neighbourhood. There's enough entertainment outside."
PARSONS said she thinks police should patrol the area more regularly on Friday and Saturday nights.
The parking lot is the same one in which Ryan VLAAD, 26, died after being punched in the head during an early morning brawl in July 2002.
Ward 3 Coun. Bernie MacDONALD said he's fielded complaints from neighbours who have had beer bottles thrown at their houses and on their property after 2 a.m. and have heard fights breaking out.
"This has been an ongoing thing with the residents," he said.
The concerns were passed on to police and MacDONALD thought the problems had been quelled until he heard about yesterday's shooting.
But MacDONALD said he thinks drugs are the "root evil" behind violence and shootings in the city this year.
"Until we cut the flow of drugs, we're going to see this and it's going to continue to rise," he said.
Police said they don't know whether drugs were involved in the fatal shooting.
Officers blocked off a large section of the strip mall, which also houses a Sport Mart, Goodwill, variety store, karate school and Tim Hortons.
A green Jeep and a black car also were taped off, though police wouldn't say why.
A shell casing and knife were visible at the scene.
A green camouflage hat, grey T-shirt, plastic beer cups, a cigarette pack and a lighter were strewn near what appeared to be a bloody stain near the black car.
Forensic detectives picked through the evidence and used a fire department aerial truck to photograph and videotape the lot.
An autopsy will be conducted today to determine the cause of death.

In loving memory of our dear mother and grandmother, Jean Louise (née BRADY,) who passed away January 22, 1996, nine years ago.
Mom Our lives go on without you
But nothing is the same
We have tried to hide our heartaches
When someone speaks your name.
Sad are the hearts that loved you
Silent the tears that fall
Living our lives without you
Is the hardest part of all.
You did so many things for us
Your heart was kind and true
And when we needed someone
We could always count on you.
The special years will not return
When we were all together
But with the love within our hearts
You will walk with us forever.
Until we meet again.
Your loving daughter, Monica Jean, Jeremy, and Brent

ROE, David McGregor (1930-2005)
David McGregor ROE passed away peacefully in his sleep on April 9, 2005 at the age of 74 years at 51°6' N 114°1' W.
Dave was born on July 24, 1930 in Toronto to Jean Maude YOUNG and Charles Robert ROE. He was close to his grandparents McGregor and Alice YOUNG (WILLIAMS) and his cousin Peter. Dave, known as "Rosie", attended St. Andrew's College and has stayed close to his classmates over the years, still carrying on the tradition of mischief they had all mastered as young men. He joined the Royal Canadian Air Force in the early 1950's. Dave's fondest memories of this period were when he was with 414 Sabre Squadron stationed in Baden Soellingen, Germany. Dave moved to Saint John's in 1958 to work for Canadian Marconi and spent long periods on the Distant Early Warning line in Labrador. In Saint John's he met the love of his life, Geraldine Mary KELLY, and they were married in 1960. He lived the next forty years in Newfoundland raising two boys David and Ian along the way. Dave was with the Signal Hill Tattoo, as well as being employed with Petro-Canada before his retirement. Known for his quick wit, sharp intellect, and easy going attitude, Dave loved telling stories about his world adventures (which often included a drink or three!). For Dave, life was something to be enjoyed, he made stress seem like a four letter word.
David is survived by two sons, David of Calgary and Ian of Vancouver, British Columbia; and grandchildren, Niall, Jean, and Tavin and step-sister Dee Dee.
He was predeceased by his wife Geraldine who passed away in 1997. Dave also leaves behind many great Friends in Saint John's, Calgary, Bali and other places around the world.
Cremation, no service to be held immediately. At David's request, a Memorial Service and party will be held in his honour in St. John's at a later date.
Forward condolences through www.mcinnisandholloway.com. In lieu of flowers, if Friends so desire, memorial tributes can be made directly to T.B.D. Tudball Memorial Fund, St. Andrew's College. In lieu of grief, smile and give someone a hug.

KUNST WILLIAMS, Adrian "Burke" (October 5, 1934-April 19, 2005)
Burke was born in Niagara Falls, Ontario, the son of Mabel and Frank KUNST WILLIAMS. He lived most of his early life in Ottawa where he attended Carleton University. He graduated from there with a B.Sc. and later went on to complete his C.G.A. Burke worked as an auditor for Touche Ross Bailey and Smart before joining the provincial government. His work with the Ontario government took him to St. Catharines, Thunder Bay, Brampton and Whitby, and ultimately to the Directorship of Sales Tax for the Department of Revenue, a position he held for several years. Burke was known as an excellent and respected manager, focused, knowledgeable and supportive of his staff. Retirement brought additional moves, to Calgary, Alberta, and finally to the Kitchener/Waterloo area.
Burke's death leaves his family with a gaping void,
for his wife of 46 years, Jennifer, his life companion and great friend, his beloved daughter Becky, his son-in-law Jim MIHELL, and his two wonderful granddaughters, Wendy and Erika. He was predeceased by his younger daughter, Pam. He will be sorely missed by his sister Jackie CAMPBELL (Al,) sister-in-law Peta TANCRED (Guy), his niece Jill and nephew Darin, as well as extended family members. For his family Burke was the great enabler, extremely supportive, patient, tolerant, helpful and kind, a Mr. Fix-It with a great sense of humour. He valued his Friends, and the times spent together. He lived in the present, honored the past but had his gaze firmly fixed on the future. He had plans! He loved travelling, nature, photography, computers and cars. Burke served as a Director for his condominium corporation, and was a member of Calvary Memorial United Church.
Friends are invited to share their memories of Burke with his family during memorial visitation at Calvary Memorial United Church, 91 Gruhn Street Kitchener Ontario on Saturday April 23 from 1-2 p.m. followed by the memorial service to celebrate Burke's life and faith at 2 p.m.
In Lieu of flowers and in Burke's memory, donations may be made to the Pamela Williams Memorial Award, Queen's University, Kingston, Ontario, K7L 3N6 or to the Manse Project at Calvary Memorial United Church and can be arranged through the Edward R. Good Funeral Home 171 King Street South Waterloo.

Passed away suddenly at age 77 in the early hours of April 25 after a quiet day at his home in 'his paradise' nestled in the hills of Mulmur. A graduate of Osgoode, 'The Silver Fox' practiced law for over forty years, much of it as a member of the prominent law firm 'Humphrey, Locke, Ecclestone and Kane'. He was a founding member of the Criminal Lawyers' Association of Ontario and served for many years on the board of Clifton House. He was a man of high principles who never turned a client away, often working 'pro bono'. Gord looked for the good in people and always brought out the best in them. 'Eccy's' brusque demeanour belied a warm, shy, loving man with a keen mind. He kept his renowned wit and good humour to the end, joking with those around him in his final moments. More comfortable in overalls than a suit, he was always the first to offer help to a friend or neighbour from digging a ditch to moving a dock. A loving husband, adored by his wife, Sue (née WILLIAMS,) his children and their spouses, Scott (Vicky,) Kelly (Garry), Dean (Elsbeth), Craig (Rebecca), Laurie (Victor) and his cherished grandchildren Victoria, Cassandra, Erin, Kalen, Liam, Kevin, Katrien, Tessie, Rowan, Ben, Sean, Nicholas, Logan and Sarah.

KLEMENT, Olga M. (formerly WILLIAMS, née HARGREAVES)
(April 23, 1930-April 27, 2005)
Olga slipped peacefully into the afterlife on Wednesday, April 27, 2005 at home surrounded by her family. Born in Audenshaw, Lancashire, England she was the only child of Harry and Ethel HARGREAVES. She attended the University of Manchester graduating with an Honours degree in Architecture in 1953. She and David WILLIAMS, a graduate of the School of Town Planning at Manchester were married in 1955; their daughter Claire Margaret was born in 1956. In 1958 they all emigrated to Canada. Her interest in the arts led her to join the Art Gallery of Ontario and became a life member. She joined the Toronto Heliconian Club, and served a term as president. After a divorce she became more heavily involved in the arts; she taught at the Ontario College of Art and Design, wrote for the Ontario Crafts Council publication, Toronto Life, and was the author of the entry 'Canadian Interior Architecture' for the 36 volume Dictionary of Art published by Gage. In 1979 she was one of the founding members of the Canadian Society of Decorative Arts/Centre Canadian des arts décoratifs and its first president. Olga wrote numerous articles for the society's publication The Bulletin, illustrated by photographs by her husband Miro C. KLEMENT. Mrs. KLEMENT's interest in social causes centred on C.O.R.E. (Centre for Opportunities, Respect and Empowerment), an agency first established in 1914 in Toronto to provide support for women whose husbands were fighting in World War I. At this time it was known as the Women's Sheltered Workshop. Olga became a board member in 1969 and served as president for a number of years. Her greatest joy was her family, the company of her daughter Claire OLANOW and granddaughter Meredith. Her life changed after she met Miro KLEMENT in 1979 - they were married in Osgoode Hall on December 30, 1999. They shared an interest in the history of architecture, in art, in music, in oriental art and Miro's passion for photography. The culmination of one of their most important goals was achieved in finding the suitable resting place for the material which relates to Miro's family in Prague during the 1930's and 40's. They are especially pleased that the family archive will remain in Toronto, at the Thomas Fisher Rare Book Library at the University of Toronto. A Memorial Service will be held on Saturday, May 7, 2005 at 11 a.m. at St. James Cemetery in the Chapel of St. James-the-Less, 635 Parliament Street, Toronto. Flowers are gratefully declined. If desired, memorial donations may be made to Sierra Legal Defence Fund: 131 Water Street, Suite 214, Vancouver, British Columbia V6B 9Z9 or to C.O.R.E., 11 Charlotte Street, Toronto, Ontario M5V 2H5.

WILLIAMS, Margaret Ashwell Williams (née CARSON)
Suddenly, at age 88, at Belmont House, Toronto on Thursday August 18, 2005. Pre-deceased in 1994 by her husband D. Carlton WILLIAMS, Peggy leaves her daughter Catherine and her partner Austin COOPER of Toronto and son David of Abbotsford, B.C.. Peggy was also the proud "Gran" of Carson (12) and Carter (10), whose many accomplishments brought her great pleasure.
Toronto born, she attended Bishop Strachan School on scholarship then the University of Toronto where she studied Library Science. It was at University of Toronto that she met a dashing teaching assistant named Carl who became her husband on November 20, 1943. Being wartime, Peggy was required to give up her job in the library. From then on, she devoted her considerable intelligence and energy to raising her children and supporting her husband's career as he rose through the academic ranks to become President and Vice-Chancellor of the University of Western Ontario in London. Lifelong patrons of the arts and cultural tourists before the term had been invented, Peggy and Carl never missed a season at Stratford and were frequent supporters of the arts in all of its diversity: symphony, opera, university productions, galleries and book groups. Peggy's intelligence and quick wit will be missed by book groups and at bridge tables in London and Toronto. We shall sorely miss her wise counsel in times of challenge and her unwavering sense of right and wrong. After cremation and a private interment, Peggy's life will be celebrated with a memorial service at First - St. Andrew's United Church, 350 Queens Avenue, London, Ontario at 3: 00 p.m. Tuesday, August 23, 2005. Peggy, and three generations before her, attended and served this wonderful church. For those unable to travel to London, a reception will be held in Toronto on Wednesday August 24, 2005 from 4 to 7 p.m. at the home of Judge W.E.C. COLTER, 9 Thornwood Road in Rosedale.

Predeceased by their daughter, Mary Kathleen (1965), she will be lovingly remembered and deeply missed by their 6 children Alfred and his wife Danielle FRENCH of Toronto, Margaret (Peggy) BRUNELLE and her husband Jean-Guy of Montreal, Eric and his wife Laura BAKER of Toronto; Caroline BRUNELLE and her husband Normand of Montreal, David of Cambridge and his fianceé Patricia POMAR and Martin of Woodstock.

She was a long-time member and warden of Old St. Paul's Anglican Church, Woodstock, where she also sang in the choir and was active in a variety of organizations.
Among her many leadership roles over the years, Imogene served as President of the Deanery of Oxford, President of the Anglican Church Women for the Diocese of Huron, member of the Board of the Corporation of Huron University College, President of the Oxford Liberal Association and President of the Arthritis Society of Oxford County. She was a frequent delegate to the Diocesan and National Synods of the Anglican Church of Canada and to various Provincial and National Liberal Party Conventions.

Imogene devoted herself to helping others. She will be sadly missed by countless fellow travellers who she served so quietly and faithfully over many years by driving them to church, delivering meals-on-wheels, leading aquatic therapy classes or just dropping by to provide some valued Friendship and cheer. Nor will she soon be forgotten by the families of many whose loved ones she nursed in their own last days.
We extend our heartfelt thanks and gratitude to Dr. SUGIMOTO and his team at the London Regional Cancer Centre and to her personal doctor, Dr. VU of Woodstock, for the care and attention they paid. We especially thank all those many family and Friends who helped to sustain her in these difficult years.

Week Of Remembrance: Charles WILLIAMS (1922-2005)
Tank commander fought his way across Normandy, Holland and Germany with the Sherbrooke Fusiliers and once dished out orders to a brigadier-general
By M.J. STONE, Special to The Globe and Mail, Monday, November 7, 2005, Page S8
Montreal -- He was a daring but lowly lieutenant who once gave orders to a brigadier-general. Charles Mecum WILLIAMS was a tank commander with the Sherbrooke Fusiliers in France, the Lowlands and Germany whose quiet, unwavering presence inspired those who fought beside him.
"Charles was a fearless leader whose courage had a greater effect on his men than officers of superior rank," said T. Garry GOULD, honorary Colonel of the Sherbrooke Hussars regiment.
The two men had been students at McGill University in Montreal. Both enlisted in the army in 1942 and met while training with the Canadian Armoured Corps at Camp Borden, Ontario
Mr. WILLIAMS, who had been taught to shoot at an early age by his father, quickly made his mark during target practice. At first, his sergeant instructor was unimpressed and told him to take better aim. As far as he could tell, Mr. WILLIAMS kept missing the target. "Sir, I couldn't miss that target," protested Mr. WILLIAMS.
The sergeant examined the target and discovered his student had repeatedly hit the bull's eye. As a consequence, Mr. WILLIAMS was immediately promoted to rifle instructor.
By the time they began their march across Normandy in June of 1944, he had swapped his rifle for a tank and was all about business. He was known for his ability to make split-second decisions under pressure, said Col. GOULD. One day, their tank came under fire from a German bazooka crew hidden in a ditch. "The tank's .75 millimetre gun refused to reload and its machine gun jammed, so Charlie, who was colour-blind and consequently was never fooled by camouflage, whipped out his .38 Webley revolver" and saved the day.
In August of 1944, Mr. WILLIAMS was part of Operation Totalize, an action during which Canadian, Scottish and Polish troops penetrated the fierce German defences of inland Normandy and advanced toward Falaise. He was wounded when concussion from a mortar round caused the tank hatch to slam closed on his hand. He refused to seek medical treatment, insisting that injured fingers were no excuse to the leave the battlefield, but when gangrene set in a few days later and spread up his arm, he was ordered back to a dressing station.
"A man of lesser courage would have sought medical attention immediately," said Mr. GOULD. His friend had been assigned to lead the squadron into battle, and anyone else would have used a mangled hand as good reason to turn over command.
Mr. WILLIAMS returned to England for surgery on his hand and was recalled to his regiment in December as a reconnaissance officer. One day in Holland, he found himself in the unusual situation of placing a brigadier-general under his command. He was commanding a brigade when Brigadier-General T.J. RUTHERFORD arrived from headquarters. Eager to see some real fighting, the brigadier asked the Sherbrooke's commanding officer if he could join a tank crew to the front lines for a day or two.
"None of the officers was too keen to volunteer, but Charlie remembered from his training days that the brigadier was an excellent gunner," said his son Dominick WILLIAMS. "He took the assignment, but only on the condition that RUTHERFORD agree to perform the duties of a trooper."
The tank rumbled off in the direction of the fighting with a brigadier for a gunner. Like the rest of the crew, he unquestioning took orders from Mr. WILLIAMS, who at that time held the rank of lieutenant. The hours ticked by and when the brigadier failed to return from the front, Headquarters became worried.
"When operations finally contacted Charlie's tank by radio, all protocol between the crew and the general had vanished," said Dominick WILLIAMS. " The radio operator was on such familiar terms with RUTHERFORD that he nudged the general in the ribs with his boots and said: 'Hey brig, you're wanted on the horn.' "
Overhearing the exchange, the situation proved too much for headquarters. The brigadier was recalled and so ended Mr. WILLIAMS' most unusual command.
In later fighting, Mr. WILLIAMS helped break through the Siegfried Line in Germany in February of 1945. He returned to Canada in 1946 and was discharged with the rank of captain.
After the war, Mr. WILLIAMS returned to McGill and in 1949 graduated as a mechanical engineer. First joining Consolidated Paper Corporation in Grand-Mere, Quebec, he moved to the United States and ended up at James River Paper Corporation in Richmond, Va.
He retired in 1987 and, with his wife, Jill, returned to Ontario.
Charles Mecum WILLIAMS was born on May 23, 1922, in New Jersey. He died of Parkinson's disease on September 15, 2005, in Niagara-on-the-Lake. He leaves his second wife, Jill, and his sons from his first marriage: Dominick, Andrew, Christopher and Sean.

GREENBERG, Leonard Herman B.Sc., M.Sc., PhD, and professor emeritus
The physics community lost a respected long time member and teacher on November 10, 2005. Len GREENBERG taught in the physics department at the University of Regina for 38 years, including 5 years as department head, retiring in 1990. Co-workers recall him as an extremely good physicist, instrumental in bringing the small department recognition as one of the best in Canada in the field of sub-atomic physics. Len's forte was writing, however, and his two books, "Discovery in Physics for Scientists and Engineers" and "Physics for Biology and Pre-med Students" have been called literature as well as science, and were translated into several languages. In his early career, Len was deeply involved in the development of the cobalt bomb for radiation in cancer therapy at the University of Saskatchewan in Saskatoon, and he worked for many years at the Allan Blair Memorial Clinic in Regina. Although not an astronomer, Len developed and taught the first astronomy classes at the University of Regina.
Len was born on October 5, 1925 in Calgary, Alberta, one of four children of Anna and Oscar, who had emigrated from Sweden. Len obtained his B.Sc. and M.Sc. from the University of Alberta and PhD from the University of Saskatchewan, Saskatoon in the mid-1950s. He moved to Regina in 1952, and lived there until 1972, when he moved to the village of Silton. Summers were spent on Kenderdine Island in Lac La Ronge, where Len found a retreat and idyllic environment for his writing.
Len was predeceased by his parents, his sister Evelyn and his brother George. Len will be sadly missed by Ann, his wife of 32 years. Len will also be missed by his sister Bernice CRAIG (Cameron) of Cranbrook, British Columbia and his first wife Joyce HENDERSON of Red Deer, Alberta. Len was an inspiration to his children Lynnea WILLIAMS (Bruce) of Regina, Pauline WATSON (Bob) of Oakville, Ontario, Sherrill BARKER (John) of Red Deer, Alberta, David GRONBERG of Regina, Ian GREENBERG (Sue) of Vancouver, Dan McKAY of Edmonton, Stephen McKERRACHER (Donna) of Drake, Saskatchewan. Len also leaves thirteen grandchildren: Notanee and Roshi (Regina), Kevin and Andrea (Oakville), Natasha and Nathan (Red Deer), Sarah (Scarborough), Chelsea, Eliza and Matthew (Victoria), Ayla, Sterling and Milan, and three great grandchildren. Len is already deeply missed by his dogs Suzy and Gus.
The funeral will be held at Speers Funeral Chapel, Regina, at 1: 30 on Tuesday November 15. In lieu of flowers, donations can be made to a bursary to be set up in his name, directed to the University of Regina, External Relations, 210 North Residence, S4S 0A2, Toll free 1-866-667-7500 in Canada or the United States.

Keith WINTERHALDER, Scientist (1935-2005)
Laurentian University teacher was a meticulous researcher but the epitome of the eccentric absent-minded professor at home, writes Sandra MARTIN. Importantly, he was the brains behind the greening of Sudbury, Ontario,
By Sandra MARTIN, Tuesday, November 29, 2005, Page S9
Sudbury was not a pretty sight when botanist Keith WINTERHALDER arrived to teach at Laurentian University in 1965. Logging, fire, smelter emissions from the International Nickel Company (Inco) and soil erosion had wiped out almost all of the vegetation in the area. The barren soil, lacking the normal mulch from leaves falling in the autumn, suffered from severe frost in the winter and overheated in the summer.
Inco had tried sowing grass seeds. They would germinate, but the roots would wither as soon as they encountered the contaminated soil surface. After years of experimentation, Prof. WINTERHALDER learned, in what came to be called the Winterhalder Method, that an application of ground limestone could detoxify soil -- not just in Sudbury but in many areas of the world where mining and other industrial applications have polluted the environment. He also discovered that if a sparse grass cover could be established on a rocky hillside that had been treated with limestone and fertilizer, seeds from the few existing poplars, willows and birches in the surrounding area would blow in, germinate and grow.
"He suggested a lot of different grasses and different soils and different amounts of lime and fertilizer we could use," said Tom PETERS, former head of the Agricultural Dept. at Inco. It was as though the land degraded by the smelter formed a huge open air laboratory. "We carried on talking as we did different things and he became quite involved after I retired [in 1984] in planting trees on the tailings," said Mr. PETERS.
Prof. WINTERHALDER served as chair of Sudbury's Vegetation Enhancement Technical Advisory Committee for more than 20 years, initially preparing an inventory and then producing a case study to show that the toxic conditions could be reversed. Beginning in 1978, the Sudbury region established ground cover on more than 3,000 hectares of barren land and cleaned up 1,000 hectares of dead standing debris. They also planted more than a million trees.
W.E. LAUTENBACK, now director of planning services for the city of greater Sudbury, was the staff person on Vegetation Enhancement Technical Advisory Committee. When the Earth Summit in Rio de Janeiro lauded the region for its environmental stewardship in 1992, Mr. LAUTENBACK compared the honour to winning an Olympic gold medal. Prof. WINTERHALDER was extremely important in the greening of Sudbury, Mr. LAUTENBACK said. "He was the guy who pointed the way [with his research] and he was also very committed to public service. It gave his knowledge back for the public good."
Prof. WINTERHALDER was also generous and patient with his students. "I learned more from him than any other professor," said biologist Peter NOSKO, who did a masters degree at Laurentian.
Although he was meticulous with his field notes and his research papers, he was the epitome of the eccentric absent-minded professor in his personal life. He also seemed to have a lucky angel sitting on his shoulder. "If he were late for a plane it would be delayed," said Karen GANDIER, a former math teacher and his partner for more than 25 years.
On an Asian field trip he was perched 30 metres above the ground in a Malaysian rain forest when he dropped his glasses off the platform into the tree canopy. The next morning he went down to the ground and found them. Another time, he couldn't shift his ancient car into forward gear, so he drove it backwards all the way home from the university. The only tricky part, according to Ms. GANDIER, was figuring out which side of the street to drive on after he turned a corner at the street lights.
A linguist who was proficient in a number of languages including Ojibwa and Russian, he was also an accomplished musician who sang choral music in a Sudbury choir and loved to play the bagpipes. Prof. NOSKO remembers working very late in a lab when he was a student and feeling sorry for himself until he heard the skirl of the bagpipes coming from the herbarium down the hall and realized that he wasn't alone. "It was comforting to know that Keith was in there working, too."
Keith WINTERHALDER was born in Burrington, Shropshire, near the border between Wales and England, the eldest in a family of four children. His father, Frederick Albert WINTERHALDER, was a sports fisherman and a policeman. Originally watchmakers from the Black Forest area near Switzerland, the WINTERHALDERs had emigrated to London four generations earlier. His mother, Ursula May (WILLIAMS,) was a descendant of a long line of Welsh singers and a housewife who, when Prof. WINTERHALDER was a child, kept a cow and chickens and churned her own butter.
He was six years older than Neil, his nearest sibling; 12 years older than his sister, Sandra, and 14 years older than his brother Robin, and he "grew up in beautiful countryside on a smallholding miles from the nearest village," with only a sheepdog as a companion, according to his sister.
After his family moved to Rhayader in mid-Wales, he attended local schools before going on to Llandrindod Wells grammar school. He was "a loved father figure" to his youngest siblings, because their father, who had joined the air ministry police during the war, "worked away" for most of their early lives.
"Rob and I were taken for frequent long walks in the old-fashioned pram through the beautiful Welsh countryside and Keith, even then, seemed to be able to tell us all about nature." He was head boy at his grammar school. "He was always ahead of his peer group at school and was really quite intellectual as a boy -- spending time in the local library reading when his classmates were doing the more usual boyish activities."
After Llandrindod Wells, he went to the University of Wales at Aberystwyth, graduating with first-class honours in botany in 1956 and winning a Commonwealth Scholarship to do graduate work at the University of New England in New South Wales, Australia.
For somebody so intellectually talented and passionate about his subject, Prof. WINTERHALDER lacked a conventional curriculum vitae. He studied and taught botany as a sessional lecturer at University of New England for six years (until 1962) before taking up a three-year posting as a research fellow in botany at the University of Liverpool back in England. In 1963, he accepted a job as a lecturer in botany at the newly incorporated Laurentian University and immediately on arriving he became curator of the university's newly formed herbarium.
He was promoted to assistant professor in 1969 and associate professor in 1980. After his retirement in 1999, he continued working at the University Herbarium as curator emeritus and founded his own company, Wintergreen Ecological Services.
A procrastinator who cared little for credentials, he only belatedly acquired a masters degree in science from University of New England in 1970 and he never completed the dissertation for his Ph. D. degree. The frequently told story is that all his data burned up in a fire in a lab while he was out in the bush doing field research.
Zoologist Vic CLULOW met him in 1968, three years after he arrived at Laurentian. "He could have got a Ph. D at any time, but he never did," said Prof. CLULOW, relating a story about Prof. WINTERHALDER being held in such high esteem by his academic colleagues that he was asked on at least one occasion to serve as an external examiner for a Ph. D thesis even though he didn't technically have the qualification himself. "He also helped a lot of undergraduates and postgraduate students with money, time and space without ever expecting anything back," said Prof. CLULOW.
"He was never boring, but often exasperating," said Ms. GANDIER. They met after Prof. WINTERHALDER rented a house in the early 1970s from a colleague who was away on sabbatical and found a note saying: "For plumbing or dogs, see Karen." They had mutual interests in skiing, dogs, music and the outdoors, but they always maintained separate residences.
"Neither of us could stand living with the other full time. Both of us were real loners," said Ms. GANDIER. Besides, she was a dog person and he was a cat lover. Prof. WINTERHALDER always kept a window open in his basement and stray cats and the occasional raccoon would come in to eat the food he left for them.
About six years ago he was diagnosed with scleroderma, a chronic connective-tissue disorder that is generally classified as an autoimmune rheumatic disease. It affected his hands and feet first, making the joints painful and inflexible, and then progressed to his lungs and compromised his breathing. He never complained, according to Ms. GANDIER. He continued to go on field trips and conferences, attending one this year in a wheel chair.
Keith WINTERHALDER was born in Shropshire, England, on April 14, 1935. He died in Sudbury, Ontario of complications from scleroderma on October 29. He was 70. He is survived by his partner, Karen GANDIER, and by three siblings.

SALMOND, Anthony Thomas
It is with profound sadness that we announce the passing of Anthony Thomas SALMOND, age 44, on Saturday, April 2, 2005. Never a quitter, his heroic journey with cancer was one he traveled with grace, strength and an incredible sense of humour. Tony was a loving husband and soulmate of Susan, adoring and proud father of Peter and Abby, beloved son to Florence and Peter SALMOND, cherished big brother of Leslie and Kathryn and her husband David SMITH. He leaves behind a loving mother-in-law Diane THOMAS, brothers-in-law Hugh (Maria) and Geoff (Caroline) THOMAS. Tony was the "cool" uncle of Michael, Amy, Erin, Sarah, and Christian. His Nana adored him, as did many aunts, uncles, cousins and a legion of loyal Friends. Tony enjoyed life immensely. He was known for his ability to make Friends and be grateful and happy for the company of them. He was a wonderful friend who combined rare depth and compassion with a razor sharp wit. Tony loved a cocktail party. He was gregarious, charming and extroverted, always a gentleman, and people loved to be around him. He had a sense of humour second to none. Tony lived in Newcastle close to the water, where he enjoyed sailing with his family; he was a peerless yachtsman. It was also a short drive to the family cottage, a place he loved to be with his family and Friends. Tony loved to work around his home as he was an unrivalled handyman. The family would like to thank Dr. Harvey WILLIAMS for his ongoing kindness and the "angels" at Lakeridge Bowmanville Hospital for making his journey one filled with love and support. Tony's family would also like to thank the generosity and kindness of Tony's Friends at Black and McDonald, Pullman Court in Scarborough who continued to support him throughout his illness. Family and Friends are invited to celebrate Tony's life on Saturday, April 9 with visitation from 2-3 p.m. and service beginning at 3 p.m. at the York Cemetery Chapel Reception Centre, 160 Beecroft Road, Toronto, 416-221-3404.

Noël YOUNG had vision for daycare
He wanted a seamless day for schoolchildren
'Incurable' optimist devoted life to youngsters
By Catherine DUNPHY, Obituary Writer
A playful, joyful giant of a man, Noël YOUNG dedicated his life to children, their care and their welfare -- even though it was all theoretical until the birth of his own daughter just six years ago.
Mieke was an amazing gift, he used to say, and this wasn't theory, nor just the words of the smitten father he was. Four years before she was born, he was diagnosed with a brain tumour and given a few months to live. Perhaps it was his sunny, optimistic nature, perhaps it was something else, but YOUNG married his partner, Canadian Broadcasting Corporation writer Ann JANSEN, after his diagnosis and New Year's Eve surgery, and lived another 10 years. He died March 8 at age 51.
"When he was first sick, we never thought (having children) was a possibility," JANSEN said. "But he stayed well and the desire to have children is a very strong one. "
And he was someone who had a very strong sense of possibility.
"Cancer wasn't the only thing Noël had that was incurable. His optimism was," said Geoff WILLIAMS, a friend from their high school days in Scarborough. "Until close to his death he rarely expressed frustration or spoke of being upset with having cancer."
What did concern him -- greatly -- was establishing a child-care program for school-aged children within a federally funded universal child-care system. His vision was a seamless school day for children, in which they could go to one place for school and daycare. He was a founding member of the School Age Care Association of Ontario and the author of a 1994 book Caring for Play: The School and Child Care Connection.
He was the sparkplug behind a conference in Toronto six years ago and the driving force behind the association newsletter "Exploring Environments".
"He was very involved in things for children, advocacy for children, not-for-profit children's care," said Martha FRIENDLY, who saw him the day after the federal budget was announced in February. He had been staying in the palliative care unit at Toronto Grace hospital since the beginning of the year and by then was having some trouble speaking, but he wanted to know if the budget included finally -- funding for child care.
FRIENDLY is chair of the University of Toronto Childcare Resource and Research Unit, but she was one of a group of parents starting up the Alternative Primary School in about 1982 when she hired YOUNG to help with its faltering daycare. "He was tall -- about 6-foot-4 -- with a big, bushy head of red hair and I thought he was just the cutest guy. I tend to make snap judgments. I thought 'Okay, here's the guy (we need).'"
YOUNG told the hiring committee he wasn't strong on administration and that became a running joke. He was a creative, compassionate, imaginative and inspirational child-care worker: he started an outdoor education program in which the daycare kids experienced overnight outdoor camping, he designed a school-aged child-care program that focused on what the kids were interested in, including Friday afternoon swim lessons, but he never could pull together a budget.
It was the same when he arrived in the early childhood education program at George Brown College in 1987, ready to shake things up at a school known for its focus on the infant and toddler stages. He envisioned school boards and child-care centres working together to provide the seamless day, and it now exists at the early childhood education program funded by the province and run by George Brown at Ryerson public school.
YOUNG also initiated an innovative Canadian social history project, collecting archival photographs and organizing them into stories of child care, health, women's work, poverty and racism he often shared with classes at the college.
"He was trying to engage students in a more meaningful way of learning about history, and for early childhood education students to understand why we have the health care we have," said Pam DOYLE, his friend and colleague at George Brown.
She worked on the project with YOUNG in 1998. "He once affectionately referred to me as 'his staff,'" she recalled. "It was a faux pas he didn't make again."
But it was also typical of YOUNG, who could talk his, mainly female, colleagues into helping out and usually into doing the majority of the detail work on the many projects, conferences and causes he believed in. He got away with it because of his infectious idealism, youthfulness and exuberance. Still his Peter Pan-like ability to have the women in his life look after all its practicalities had a female friend at George Brown threatening to make up T-shirts proclaiming "I'm not Wendy."
He grew up in a family of women. "When he was born, everybody was thrilled," said his sister Betty VEITCH. He was the youngest child and only boy, and his three sisters fought over who was going to take him to school on his first day.
His father was an Anglican Church minister, idealistic and often away administering to the needs of his parishioners, something that wasn't lost on his son. When YOUNG was about five, he disappeared one day. The family finally found him having milk and cookies at the home of the church organist who lived with her elderly sister. He told his frantic mother he was "doing visiting just like Dad does."
YOUNG began working with children at the former Bolton Camp for underprivileged children and at the Eastview drop-in centre in downtown Toronto while attending the University of Toronto. He graduated -- eventually. "This was typical of how he approached academia: he liked it in theory better than practice," said WILLIAMS.
YOUNG started up and lived in a number of communal houses in the city: "From the first house on Follis to the apartment above the shawarma shop on College, in the house that shook in high winds on Clinton, and during brief diversions to the foreign lands east of the Don Valley Parkway, Noël managed to bring groups of people together in various degrees of harmony," WILLIAMS noted.
YOUNG and JANSEN made their home in a co-op near University of Toronto and a Starbucks, where YOUNG used to take his plastic travel mug every morning for a fill-up. He got to know the staff there so well, one of them started babysitting Mieke and another signed up in George Brown's youth services program. "He was a natural mentor," his wife said.
When he moved into the palliative care unit, the Starbucks staff arranged delivery of coffee to him.
His surgery last fall wasn't successful, but it might have given him an extra month or so of life, which he put to use. His was a family devastated by cancer: both his twin sisters died of it (Gwen had breast cancer and Lorraine ovarian cancer). His father had died of pancreatic cancer and his mother died of leukemia. Only Betty VEITCH survived kidney cancer.
Trinity Hospice organized a care team for YOUNG that was soon overflowing with Friends.
Pam DOYLE was a team member. "He still had ideas to the end. He still wanted to get people to work on committees. He said the team was life-giving; we were in awe of him."
When he still could, he did paddling exercises in his bed because he was hoping he might be able to go on one more canoe trip to Killarney. With DOYLE, he worked out the details of the Noel Young Award, which will be awarded to a student in George Brown's early childhood education program who has shown a commitment to advocacy and action.
About 450 people attended his memorial celebration at Trinity St. Paul's Church last month. There were cards and condolences. One was from Martha FRIENDLY's daughter Abigail, now 25 and studying in London, England. She was one of the kids at that daycare in 1982 where YOUNG first worked. She used to pretend she wasn't feeling well at school so she could sit with YOUNG in the daycare. "I always thought you were a giant," she wrote.

KELLY, Norman Henry, B.A. (Hons.,) M.Ed., Cert. Guid. and Couns.
Died peacefully with his family at his side, at 62 years of age, in Toronto on Sunday, September 4th, 2005. Dearly missed and remembered as an amazing individual who touched so many lives, and for his quirky sense of humour, love of the theatre in all its aspects, pride of Canada, occasional constant flirtatious nature, and maker of industrial strength Caesar salads. Norm always loved a party and was often the last to leave. He took great joy in helping others grow strong and reach their full potential, and valued his role as mentor to many, many people. Dearly beloved and loving soul mate, partner and husband of Barbara DATLEN- KELLY for 26 years (back to 1979;) former husband of Mary Ellen JAMIESON; father of Sheila Anne KELLY; stepfather of James DATLEN (Dave CLEGHORN) of Brampton, Stephen DATLEN (Rachel) of Brampton, and John DATLEN (Jennifer) of San Francisco; eldest son of Dr. Norman KELLY and the late Helen KELLY née McCARTHY) of Toronto; brother of Robert KELLY of Toronto; eldest nephew of many aunts and uncles, and eldest of 22 cousins. He will be sorely missed by many Friends and former colleagues. A lifetime resident of Toronto, and graduate of De La Salle (Oaklands), York University and University of Toronto (O.I.S.E.), Norm was a classroom teacher for 12 years and then moved to guidance at the elementary, secondary and board levels in the former M.S.S.B. (now T.C.D.S.B.) for the next 23 wonderful years. He also taught a wide variety of psychology and counseling courses for Humber C.A.A.T., York University and the University of Toronto. The undisputed "Mayor" of University City, Norm was President of the University City Community Association, President of the Board of Directors of York Condominium Corporation No. 54 for 17 years, Chairman of the North York Secondary Plan Committee for York University, and was Master of Ceremonies for numerous Canada Day celebrations in University City. His theatrical experience included 25 years with T.C.D.S.B. Staff Arts as both a performer and technical producer and 8 years with Spotlight Music Productions as a performer. He set a shining example of courage by performing 8 different shows while confined to a wheelchair over the last 4 years. Norm fought a crippling Parkinson's Plus disorder, Multi System Atrophy, for 7 ½ years with grace, courage and determination. Norm's quality of life was greatly enhanced by a dedicated group of 15 Friends and neighbours who conducted speech therapy sessions with him on a regular basis for over 3 years.

Man on oxygen tank dies after explosion
Was smoking in his apartment
Police say victim pulled fire alarm
By Louie ROSELLA, Torstar News Service
A 57-year-old Mississauga man was killed yesterday morning after the oxygen tank he was hooked up to in his Bloor St. apartment ignited and exploded while he smoked a cigarette.
The victim, David GRIGHTMIRE, was hooked up to the oxygen tank because he had emphysema, said his younger sister Margaret FITZGERALD, who lived with her brother along with another sister, Betty WILLIAMS.
Neither FITZGERALD nor WILLIAMS was home at the time of the explosion.
Mississauga fire officials are still investigating the exact cause of the blast.
An autopsy yesterday revealed GRIGHTMIRE, a father of one son, died from lung failure.
Peel Region police said GRIGHTMIRE managed to pull the fire alarm after the explosion, alerting tenants to evacuate the building.
"Even when he was dying, he was thinking about saving other people," said FITZGERALD.
"He was a good man right to the end."
Mississauga firefighters and Peel paramedics were called to the apartment building near Havenwood Dr. around 9: 30 a.m. following a number of minor explosions on the sixth floor.
A firefighter discovered GRIGHTMIRE without vital signs inside his sixth floor unit.
He was rushed to Trillium Health Centre and pronounced dead shortly after arrival.
Fire crews remained on scene for several hours trying to clear smoke from the building.
GRIGHTMIRE, a security guard and Mississauga resident for 40 years, was a member and past master of the Mississauga Masonic Lodge 524 in Port Credit.
His favourite hobbies were reading and doing crossword puzzles, said older brother Thomas GRIGHTMIRE.
GRIGHTMIRE's death should serve as a reminder to oxygen-tank users to be careful, the elder GRIGHTMIRE said.
Ontario's Ministry of Health and Long-Term Care said people on an oxygen system "must take precautions because oxygen aids combustion."
The provincial government warns oxygen users to keep oxygen systems away from sources of heat or open flame and not to smoke or let anyone else smoke in the area where they use oxygen.
