ROTHERNEL, Max
I would like to thank so many people who helped our family emotionally, financially, physically and your prayers. Thank you to Searra BROWN, students and staff at Wiarton High School; Kelso Villa, staff at Zellers, Owen Sound; T.G.I.F., Three Friends Cafe, Sheer Styles, Sears, Balloon Headquarters, Mysteeks, The Triangle Discount, The Bargain Store, all of Wiarton. Max has touched us all in so many special ways, either by those big blue eyes, or the many funny faces, or the language he spoke all the time that only he knew what it meant. The little games he'd play, like clear the table for mommy, or horsey ride with daddy or the smile on his face when mommie would get his favourite book, and they'd read it together - priceless. Then Max and dad on guitar, the pride in dad's eyes watching his son pick away. The biggest smile in the world and always opened arms. Max made everyday count and never left a toy untouched. If anyone ever had the privilege of meeting Max's parents, they would soon see why this little boy was so happy and full of life. Words cannot express just how this little boy touched my heart. But, I can thank my daughter Arryn and my son-in-law, Jim for giving us all such a precious gift. Although Max was with us for only 14 months, he gave me a lifetime of beautiful memories. He will always be my sunshine.
- Cheryl WATSON, Max's grandma.

Somewhere over the sunset, Where memories never die, You dwell in God's beautiful garden Above the clear blue sky. Tell us Lord does he make you laugh Does his big smile make you cheer, Does he make the sun shine brighter Like he did when he was here. We won't forget when we were small The times we spent together, The love and care you gave to us Will stay with us forever. You played a big part in our lives And now that you are gone, The memories and love we have for you Will always carry on. Please find the softest pillow, Lord To rest our Papa's head upon, Place seven kisses on his cheek And tell him who they're from. We love and miss you Papa.

In memory of our loving husband and Daddy, Jimmy, who passed away 5 years ago today, January, 10, 2001.
The angels of the Lord came down And whispered softly in your ear "Jimmy, it is time to go Your work is finished here." They took you on a journey Sailing through the sky, Looking over all your family To say your last goodbye. Your tears fell down from Heaven And gently reached the ground, As we stood sorely crying You didn't make a sound. You asked the Lord to hold us And watch us night and day, Your asked him to remind us Of you when we pray. You said "The love that's deep within me Shall reach my family from the stars, They'll feel it from the Heavens And it will heal their scars." So please watch over all of us Each time we fall asleep, And kiss our tears and sorrows Every time we weep. No verse, no tears, no words can say How much we miss you everyday. Forever loved and truly missed by your wife Joan and children Patrick, Ann Marie, (Nurno) and Jim (Cory). Also large family circle in Canada, Ireland and England.

What we would give her hand to clasp,
Her patient face to see,
To hear her voice, to see her smile,

Beyond the toil and strife,
And clasp each others hand once more,
In Heaven, that happy life.

HAWKEN, Verna Doreen (née STEPHENSON)
In her 84th year, with deep sadness, her family wishes to announce the passing of an extraordinary woman after a courageous battle at Hotel Dieu Grace Hospital on Thursday, July 13, 2006. Verna's life began on February 23, 1923 in Regina, Saskatchewan when she was born to the most wonderful parents, Verner and Edna Mae STEPHENSON (predeceased in 1969 and 1972.) In 1947 she married the late Jack Christopher HAWKEN, her knight in shining armour, with whom she enjoyed 52 years. In 1949 she gave birth to her cherished daughter Barbara Christine, who will never be the same without her Mom's strength, encouragement, and daily talks. In 1954 she gave birth to Jimmy, who she spent 27 years caring for (with never a complaint) until his death in 1981. Her energy and contagious laughter will also be remembered by her brother-in-law "Bobbie" and her sister-in-law Joan, as well as her nieces and nephews Donald, Robert, Randy, Susan, Chris, and Kathy, along with their children, and the late Jo Ann (1975) and John (1980) HAWKEN. She was also predeceased by her brother-in-law Bill and her sister-in-law Luella. She will also be missed by her son-in-law Bill BROWN and his dad Bill, mom Sophie, sisters Mary and Devon, and daughter Elizabeth. And we can't forget "Jackson", Bill and Barbara's 110 pound black lab who loved to visit in her backyard and chase the squirrels. A day did not go by without her Friends and neighbours who devoted many hours of their time to her needs, especially near the end. They will always be remembered as her guardian angels. In return she loved to cook and bake for them, which had always been her favorite pastime. As well, she loved to play the piano whether it be at parties, functions, Sunday School, or just for herself and her Friends and family. Verna's life was always full of activities, ranging from curling, politics, working as a secretary at Riverside High School, or traveling to Florida with Jack. She will be remembered and missed by everyone who knew her. A funeral service to celebrate her life will be held on Monday, July 17, 2006 at 11 a.m. at the Janisse Bros-Marcotte Funeral Home (519-253-5225), 1139 Ouellette Avenue. She will then be taken to London, Ontario to be buried at Mt. Pleasant Cemetery alongside her family. Friends and relatives are all welcome to join the graveside service there at 3 p.m. A tree will be planted in memory of Verna in the Janisse Bros-Marcotte Heritage Forest. A dedication service will be held on September 24, 2006. All are welcome. You may leave your online condolences at www.janissemarcotte.ca

SODERMAN, Eric Charles
Eric passed away peacefully at Lake of the Woods District Hospital, Kenora, Ontario October 30, 2006 following a courageous six year battle with cancer. Despite many setbacks Eric always maintained his quick wit and his resolve to share more time with loved ones. Eric was born in Toronto on November 16, 1953. He spent his early years in London Ontario, graduating from the University of Western Ontario with degrees in Geology and Education. Many summers growing up were spent in Minaki on the Winnipeg River and his passion for the north led him to fulfill his dream of raising his family there. Eric was a gifted teacher, musician, outdoorsman, hockey player, herbalist, dog trainer, craftsman and poet. He was a man that had the "common touch" accepting everyone he met. Eric taught in Ferland, Whitedog, Whitefish Bay, Rat Portage, and Kenora. His patience, story telling and humour made him a very special teacher who made a difference in many lives of both young and old. Known as Soddy, music was one of his passions. From teaching his children, to playing guitar in a succession of bands he always took his music and his audience seriously. He dressed for the occasion and gave each performance his all even in the midst of his painful illness. The most important thing in Eric's life was his family and their love sustained him. Eric was predeceased by his father Lawrence, and his step-father Gerry BROWN. He is survived by his wife Vickie (née TANNER,) son Kristopher and daughter Holly. Sharing their grief are his mother Carolyn BROWN (Paul ONDERWATER,) his brothers Mark (Sue) and Kristopher (Wendy) and a large extended family of relatives and Friends.

Maurie JORRE DE SAINT_JORRE was born on April 20, 1956 in Vancouver, British Columbia, died on February 14, 2006 in Wakefield, Quebec and will be missed every day by his wife Susan BROWN and his children Adrian and Ariel.

Maurie loved his family, Friends, cooking and entertaining, his garden in Chelsea, Quebec and baseball. Maurie's favourite pastimes were coaching Adrian's baseball team, which he did for many years, and driving all over Quebec from Mont Laurier to Fort Coulonge to Montreal to watch Adrian and Ariel play hockey, soccer and rugby. He had an incisive and irreverent wit, you were lucky not to get caught in the cross fire, counterbalanced by his enormous generosity and hospitality. Maurie was diagnosed with brain cancer in September, 2004, he fought his illness heroically and received outstanding and compassionate care from so many including neurosurgeon Dr. Lieu at Centre Hospitalier des Vallées de l'Outaouais, Gatineau, neurooncologist Dr. Fortin and nurse Marie Boudria at Centre hospitalier universitaire de Sherbrooke, Sherbrooke, all the palliative care staff at C.H.G.M., Wakefield and home care workers Karen and Ken of Casa Mia, Wakefield.

Kenneth MAXTED, Officer And Clergyman (1931-2006)
He was a soldier-turned-priest who brought a military bearing to the clergy, writes Sandra MARTIN. He loved ceremony and uniforms and, with a bristling moustache, always looked the part -- irrespective of vocation
By Sandra MARTIN, Page S11
There were uniforms, medals, honorary guards and the robust singing of hymns as the many parts of Rev. Ken MAXTED's life came together Thursday afternoon at Saint_James Cathedral. The church was packed for the service that Canon MAXTED had himself planned, even to the designation of who should give the homily. Don't talk about me, Canon MAXTED said in his written funeral instructions to Rev. Mark SARGENT, a Catholic priest: Preach the gospels.
A self-defined soldier-priest who served in Korea and then became an ordained Anglican priest, Canon MAXTED was a community activist, a traditionalist and a great burly fellow who loved a joke and knew how to tell a story. "There was never an atheist in a foxhole," said Charles SCOT- BROWN, a retired soldier and family friend, attributing Mr. MAXTED's dual vocation to his upbringing in a family that went to church and "believed in God and the King, and when the King blew the whistle you joined."
He loved ceremony and uniforms and he looked the part, standing 6 feet 5 inches, with flaming red hair, a bristling mustache and a booming voice. In the mid-1970s, in addition to his duties as a clergyman, a reservist and an elected school official, Canon MAXTED began working as a volunteer aide de camp for Ontario's Lieutenant-Governors. In the next 20 years, he served Pauline McGibbon, John Aird Black, Lincoln Alexander and Henry N.R. JACKMAN.
"Nobody stood as tall as he did in his scarlet uniform, with all the gold braid and piles of medals," said Mr. JACKMAN, remembering a time, in the early 1990s, when Bob Rae was premier of Ontario. Mr. Rae was explaining the parliamentary system to a group of schoolchildren and Canon MAXTED was standing to attention behind him, recalled Mr. JACKMAN. Afterward, one of the children was asked what he thought of the premier. "He looked magnificent, but he didn't say anything," the student said, complaining that "the little guy beside him did all the talking."
Major The Reverend Canon Kenneth MAXTED was born in Toronto, the elder of two children of Edward Kenneth (Ted) MAXTED (a professional soldier who had joined the Canadian army in 1921 at 12 as a bugle boy and retired 40 years later as a major) and his wife Mary Eileen Patricia HOWARD. Both sides of the family had served in the military going back at least three generations.
Canon MAXTED grew up in Toronto with his younger sister Patricia and attended Parkdale Collegiate. Too young to serve in the Second World War, he enlisted as a private in the Irish Regiment in 1948 when he was 17. "He was always an intense, energetic, mischievous kid," said Mr. SCOT- BROWN, who served with Canon MAXTED's father. "He could pull the craziest practical jokes, but his pranks never hurt anybody."
Canon MAXTED qualified as a reserve officer in 1951 and as an infantry officer in the regular forces the following year. A member of the now defunct Canadian Guards, he served in Germany with North Atlantic Treaty Organization Forces and in Korea with the United Nations forces in 1953 for a year-long tour of duty.
Before he returned to Canada, he gave a speech to the South Korean soldiers, deploring "the thousands of homeless and the hungry children begging for food" and the "rubble and shell-torn cities" and paying tribute to the people "of the Land of the Morning Calm" and their "never-failing determination to survive as a free and independent nation." In return, they gave him a South Korean flag. Forty years later, Mr. MAXTED gave the flag to his son Kevin to take back to South Korea when he taught English there for a year in 1996. The flag is now part of a display about the Korean War at the Royal Canadian Military Institute in Toronto.
Back in Canada, Canon MAXTED was stationed at Camp Ipperwash, about an hour's drive from London, Ontario One evening in September of 1954, he went to a dance at the London Arena. There he spotted a young Dutch immigrant named Hendrina VAN DER MOER. He asked her to dance and she accepted. Six months later, on St. Patrick's Day, he proposed. They were married on December 15, 1955, in a military wedding at Saint Paul's Cathedral in London. Three children followed: Pamela, Sean and Kevin.
Canon MAXTED, who had always been a devout Christian, decided to study for the ministry and enrolled in the Faculty of Theology at Huron College in the University of Western Ontario in 1960. "The military and the church were always entwined in him," said his wife, who was not surprised when her husband came home one day and said he wanted to leave the regular army and study theology.
One of his fellow students was retired Archbishop Terry FINLAY. "He used to lighten our studies by coming up with an occasional military term to keep our worship in order, but underneath all that, there was a strong commitment to the faith.
"As his archbishop, I found his approach much more conservative than mine, but we were able to work together," Archbishop FINLAY said, declining to elaborate on the specific issues, other than to confirm that Canon MAXTED was a traditionalist.
He was ordained as an Anglican deacon in 1963, and a priest in 1964. He served in a number of Toronto parishes as he climbed the ecclesiastical career ladder, including Saint Anne's, Saint_John's York Mills, St. Luke's in East York and historic Holy Trinity Church in the middle of downtown Toronto, adjacent to the Eaton Centre.
This appointment was controversial. Holy Trinity, one of the oldest surviving Anglican churches in Toronto, had a dwindling but radical congregation and was in danger of being overpowered by commercial development. The late Archbishop Lewis GARNSWORTHY decided to put himself in direct charge of the church in February of 1977. He appointed Canon MAXTED, who had served under him at Saint_John's York Mills, Vicar in May, 1977, in a move that many observers felt was autocratic and designed to make the church conform to traditional ideas of parish outreach. Five months later, Archbishop GARNSWORTHY issued a statement saying there were irregularities in the ministry, function, government and Anglican tradition at the church and announced he was setting up a commission to recommend corrective action.
Many parishioners were outraged, but Canon MAXTED proved an adept conciliator and "stabilized" the situation, according to Very Rev. Douglas STOUTE, dean of Saint_James Cathedral and one of the celebrants at Canon MAXTED's funeral. "He always had a military bearing and his immersion in military culture made him respect authority and hierarchy, but he never took it too seriously," said Dean STOUTE. " Behind his military facade, he was a gentle spirit and a man of great compassion. He had a huge sense of humour and was a wonderful raconteur."
A year later, he was named an honorary Canon of Saint_James Cathedral, an appointment that allowed a clever editor at The Globe and Mail to top a news story about a robbery at Holy Trinity in 1984 with the headline: "Canon weighs down thief." Apparently, Canon MAXTED had noticed a man grappling with a customer and an employee of the church's café and wrestled the suspect to the ground where he sat on him. "I'm a former infantry officer, so I knew what to do," the burly soldier-priest said. "I may be 52, but I'm still good for one round." After the thief was incarcerated, Canon MAXTED visited him in jail.
In addition to his duties to the Church (he was regional dean of Saint_James Deanery from 1980-1984 and chaplain of the Fort York Branch of the Royal Canadian Legion, the Royal Canadian Military Institute and 54 Division Toronto Police Services) and to the military, where he served in the reserves from 1960 to 1986, Canon MAXTED was a school board trustee in East York from 1974 to 1994 and chair of the East York Board of Education from 1986-92. He also acted in a senior capacity on a number of community organizations from the Metro Folk Arts Council to Toronto-Amsterdam Twin Cities Committee to the East York Cancer Society.
Speaking about Canon MAXTED's intense level of activity, his old friend Mr. SCOT- BROWN said this was typical of an infantry officer. "In the infantry, you were always taking care of your men. When something had to be done, you didn't look at it -- you fixed it. You got on with it."
Besides his service decorations, including the Order of Military Merit, he was awarded the Centennial Medal and the Queen Elizabeth Jubilee Medal. He was also an active member of the Royal Canadian Military Institute and an engaged and energetic family man, performing weddings and baptisms as his children grew and multiplied. And he started what many would consider a new career, as a member of three federal administrative tribunals, the Canadian Pension Commission, the Veterans Review and Appeal Board and the Canadian Forces Grievance Board.
About a year ago, he appeared to be suffering from laryngitis but it turned out to be non-Hodgkins lymphoma that had manifested itself in a tumour in his throat. He started chemotherapy last September, but his immune system couldn't stave off infections. "He liked to set goals," Ms. MAXTED said about her husband, mentioning that no matter how ill he was, he wanted to live long enough to celebrate their 50th wedding anniversary in December. Instead, she reminded him on St. Patrick's Day that he had made it to the 50th anniversary of their engagement. He died the next day.
Major the Rev. Canon Kenneth Edward MAXTED was born on June 23, 1931, in Toronto. He died of complications from cancer on March 18, 2006. He was 74. He is survived by his wife, Hendrina, his children Pamela, Sean and Kevin, two grandchildren, his sister and two nephews.

IWAI, Kenneth Takeshi
Passed away suddenly in St. Petersburg General Hospital, in Florida, on March 31, 2006 at the young age of 70. Beloved husband of Elaine who he so cherished. Loving father of Darryl (Jan), the late Dana (David BROWN) and Dean (Kelly.) Adored Papa of Michelle, David, Matthew, Kaitlin, Darren, Ali, Connor, Jake and Daniel, a new grandbaby due in April and many nieces and nephews. Ken's life was a life well lived. Although he left us much too early, the last 8 years of his retired life was solely dedicated to his family, particularly his 9 grandchildren age 2-17, and his many Friends and golf buddies both in Canada and the United States. Ken was born in Vancouver, British Columbia on June 23, 1935 and moved east to Toronto with his parents and older brother Tosh after the war. He began working in the energy sector as a young man in his early 20's, and at the same time started his family with his wife Elaine. He worked for Canada Iron in sales and later sales management in the gas and oil valve division for almost 25 years before starting his own manufacturing business at the age of 48 in Burlington, Ontario, with California based partner Bob LYALL. In 1988, Ken founded his own national distribution company, KTI Limited, with head offices in Aurora, Ontario and branch offices in Calgary, Alberta and Montreal, Quebec. KTI Limited currently represents several Canadian and U.S. manufacturers operating in the natural gas and electric industries. Shortly after the tragic passing of his daughter Dana in 1997, Ken decided to completely dedicate his life to his wife and family. He and Elaine traveled the world extensively and spent winter months in Florida enabling him to play golf and enjoy the company of many great Friends all year round. Due to his vibrant love for life and the people around him, he leaves behind many close family and Friends both in Canada and the United States. He was considered a gentleman by all and everyone that knew him will miss his gentle disposition and quiet sense of humour. We would like to express a special thank you to his many Friends and family for their outpouring of love and support during this difficult time. The family will receive guests at the Ogden Funeral Home, 4164 Sheppard Avenue East, Agincourt, Ontario, Canada, (east of Kennedy Road), on Thursday, April 6 from 2-4 p.m. and from 7-9 p.m. A funeral service will be held at The Aurora Trinity Anglican Church, 79 Victoria Street, Aurora, Ontario, Canada, (south of Wellington, east of Yonge Street), on Friday, April 7 at 11: 00 a.m. In lieu of flowers, please send donations in memory of Ken Iwai to the Southlake Regional Health Centre Foundation, c/o The New Regional Cancer Centre, at 596 Davis Drive, Newmarket, Ontario, Canada, L3Y 2P9, would be appreciated by the family.

Trying to reconcile a man's life and death
Friends are wondering how a college student from a good family ended up shot dead by police, writes Anthony REINHART
By Anthony REINHART, Page A11
Toronto -- Until a couple of weeks ago, anyone who knew the real Shelton McKENZIE would have expected to find him out clubbing last night, toasting his 21st birthday on some Toronto dance floor in smooth urban attire and a fresh pair of Jordans.
Instead, his Friends dressed for a visitation yesterday at a funeral home in his hometown of Ajax, east of Toronto, to file past Mr. McKENZIE's coffin and wonder whether they really knew him at all.
Specifically, they've been wondering how Mr. McKENZIE -- who came from a middle-class suburban family, who worked as a produce clerk through high school, who had young women lining up for his ever-respectful attention, and who took police courses in college just last fall -- wound up shot dead by police this month.
It happened just before dawn on Thursday, April 13, near an upscale home in the Thornhill community north of Toronto, where the THOMPSON/THOMSON/TOMPSON/TOMSON family had just endured a home invasion robbery.
York Regional Police arrived as Mr. McKENZIE and another person fled in the THOMPSONs' pickup truck. Officers opened fire on the truck, killing Mr. McKENZIE. The second man ran off and holed up in another home and was arrested within hours.
Ontario's Special Investigations Unit, which probes deaths and injuries related to police, is still examining the killing of Mr. McKENZIE.
But York police have linked the two men to five home invasions in and around Toronto since late February, including the gunpoint robbery of Sherry COOPER, chief economist at BMO Nesbitt Burns, and her husband, Peter.
As she squinted through the murk of predawn to find two masked men standing in her bedroom, Ms. COOPER felt surprised, bewildered and terrified on the morning of March 13.
Police say Mr. McKENZIE was one of the two mud-splattered men standing before her and her husband. The pair had broken into the COOPERs' ravine-side home in Hogg's Hollow, an exclusive enclave in North Toronto.
They bound the couple with duct tape, ransacked the house and fled with cash, jewellery, computers and BlackBerrys.
Their masks, and the shock that gripped the COOPERs, made them all but impossible to identify.
"We refer to the 'old guy' and the 'young guy' when we speak to each other, or the 'big guy,' Ms. COOPER told The Globe and Mail, "and we're not even sure we're referring to the same people."
Ms. COOPER, 55, was also caught without her glasses or contact lenses. "I'm not blind without my glasses, but it was pleasingly fuzzy, believe me. I didn't particularly want to be 100-per-cent conscious."
She was conscious enough, however, to talk her way to some relief after one of the men, armed with a gun, pinned her to the bed.
"He said he wanted jewellery and I said, 'Let me show you… where it is,' Ms. COOPER said. "So, fortunately, that got us to stand up and walk in there" to where her valuables were stored.
The couple were led downstairs and taped to a pillar. One man stood guard, pointing a gun at them, the other combed the house, selecting items to fill his backpack and tossing others to the floor.
Asked whether either man seemed like a novice, or a junior partner, Ms. COOPER had this to say about the one who stood guard: "Until the very end I would have thought that he was more nervous, and that he wasn't as aggressive, he wasn't a leader," she said.
"However, at the end, I managed to get myself out of the tape, and it was that stand-guard guy that saw me. And then he grabbed me and, you know, pulled me up the steps and told me, now he's going to have to hurt me, now he's going to have to shoot me, and he threw me down on the floor and said he was going to have to shoot me.
"And it was the other one who said, 'Take her back downstairs.' So they just retaped us."
"There wasn't, like, a good cop and a bad cop; there wasn't a leader and a follower," she said. "They were brutal. They clearly hated us, just [because of] what we had."
But for the people who knew or encountered Shelton McKENZIE, nothing is very clear. No one -- from coaches and former co-workers to Friends and the police themselves -- has been able to reconcile the way he lived with the way he died.
"I really don't know how or why he became involved," Detective Sergeant Fred MOFFATT of York's holdup squad said, adding that police have seen more young people from trouble-free backgrounds jumping "right into doing robberies."
Sometimes the goal is to win acceptance from a gang. Others are dragged in by underworld creditors, such as drug dealers.
"I don't know if that's the case here, so I would never say that," Det. Sgt. MOFFATT said. "We're still investigating and still trying to figure out exactly where he comes from. But yeah, it's a mystery."
Mr. McKENZIE's parents, who have requested privacy from reporters, are "just blown away" by what happened, said Lance BROWN, their pastor at Refuge City Pentecostal Church in Ajax. "I knew Shelton. He was a great kid," Mr. BROWN said.
At the No Frills on Kingston Road in Pickering, Tony CORNACCHIA recalled how Mr. McKENZIE "always asked for as many hours as I could give him" in the produce department, where he was the most experienced part-timer, until he left the job a year ago. "I left him in charge quite a few times, on evenings and weekends."
Mr. CORNACCHIA remembered driving the young man home to his parents' relatively new house in west Ajax, where he lived with an older brother, a younger brother and a sister. He described the family as hard-working and strict, particularly the mother, who insisted that her son help pay his own way.
"It seemed like they were a very disciplined family," he said, and when he heard the news of Mr. McKENZIE's death, "I was surprised just like everyone else."
Ms. COOPER had trouble squaring the wholesome image of Mr. McKENZIE with the man who caused her to feel such terror that morning, a terror that she said has changed her life forever.
"It is inconceivable to me that some normal, 20-year-old, good kid finds himself just accidentally in this kind of situation," she said. "I have a son who's not much older than that and, honestly, I just can't even fathom how you get yourself in that situation unless you've been… involved with some real bad people for a while."
If that's the case, Shelton McKENZIE kept his secret life well hidden.
At J. Clarke Richardson Collegiate, where he graduated in 2004, basketball coaches Steve DAWSON and Mike McFETTERS stood in the gym last week, puzzled.
"Whatever happened, we didn't see it coming," said Mr. DAWSON, a middle-aged man who traded easy, good-natured jibes with the popular all-star nicknamed Springz for his jumping prowess.
Mr. McFETTERS said his star rebounder avoided situations that looked like trouble and could take a beating on the court without losing his cool.
"He wasn't a violent kid," he said, but acknowledged he'd seen Mr. McKENZIE just three times, for a total of about 20 minutes, in the two years since he left Richardson. The last time was just before Christmas, when the young man dropped by the school after his first semester in the police foundations program at Durham College in Oshawa.
Mr. McFETTERS said Mr. McKENZIE was conflicted over whether to continue his studies, citing the cost and the commute as challenges.
"If he wasn't sure what he wanted to do, he didn't want to go [back to college] until he could figure things out," the coach said.
With that, he asked Mr. McFETTERS about his wife and daughter, and congratulated him on the impending birth of a second child.
With his death, "there's just questions that I don't know if we're ever going to get the answers to now," the coach said.
Similar questions are circulating among Mr. McKENZIE's Friends, 236 of whom are linked to his profile on hi5.com, a Web gathering place. Since his death, many have posted photos and comments, written in the vernacular of on-line chat.
"i cant begin 2 understand y USA did wat USA did," wrote one. 'it wasnt ur thing… it wasnt like u. buh im not tryna hold nothing on u. Ire gota 4give u… even tho now ur gone 4ever."
Several young women claimed Mr. McKENZIE as their dream man, and gave accounts of long telephone conversations, nights out dancing, tender moments and hopes for a future together.
In an interview this week, Jennifer VIEIRA, 19, said Mr. McKENZIE's attractiveness was no mystery when she met him after the 2004 Caribana parade in downtown Toronto. He was not only well-dressed, but also a gentleman.
"He said, 'I'll call you in a couple of hours,' and he actually called me back later," she said. "He was coming off real. He wasn't being fake at all."
What was real and what was fake is sure to cross the minds of many at Mr. McKENZIE's funeral this morning, inside the Revivaltime Tabernacle in Pickering.
But inside the church and out, it seems, God only knows.

BELL, Thomas Edward James (1941-2006)
After a valiant battle against cancer, our dad, husband, brother, and friend passed away Friday, June 30th at Sunnybrook Hospital. He was a loving husband and friend to Pam (née TAIT/TAITE/TATE,) a wonderful father and mentor to Catherine BELL (Kent BROWN,) Jennifer BELL (Jeff BURZYNSKI) and Kimberley BELL (Wes PARKER,) and a fabulous grandfather to John and Michael BROWN, Sidney and Grayson BURZYNSKI, and Keara PARKER. He was a cherished brother to Carolyn McLENNAN (Peter McLENNAN) and he loved and was loved by his nieces and nephews. Tom was predeceased by his parents, Tom and Lillian BELL. After completing his B.Sc. at McGill University, (fun filled years of fraternity and playing Redman hockey), Tom began his career in business. He was a seasoned marketing, sales, and operations executive who had a passion for entrepreneurial opportunities. Tom greatly enjoyed various challenging positions that took him across Canada and around the world. Tom had a sincere love of nature. His cottage at Big Gull Lake was particularly special to him. He was a keen observer and had a deep understanding of the natural world. He was happiest in the outdoors - at his lake or in the garden. Tom will be remembered by his daughters as the best dad ever - from hours spent teaching them how to water-ski to offering his wise counsel on life's more complex issues. He was patient, reassuring, and most definitely their greatest fan. For those who knew him well, he will be missed for his passion and fight for life, his genuine positive attitude, his twinkling eyes, and bright smile. We would like to thank Doctor BERRY and his team at Sunnybrook Hospital and Doctors KOCHA, REID, and LOGAN and their team at the London Health Sciences Centre for their exceptional efforts. Tom's care at both facilities was outstanding and we would like to express our gratitude and appreciation to all of the nurses involved in his care. In lieu of flowers, please send donations to the London (Ontario) Health Sciences Neuroendocrine Program, 800 Commissioners Road East, P.O. Box 5010 London, Ontario, Canada N6A 5W9. A memorial service will take place on Wednesday, July 5th at 1: 00 p.m. at Lawrence Park Community Church in Toronto.

John ORTON, Gunner (1918-2006)
After seeing fierce fighting in the Italian campaign, he made the army his career
By Buzz BOURDON, Special to The Globe and Mail, Page S7
Ottawa -- Growing up during the 1920s in rural Alberta, John ORTON lived an innocent, idyllic life where there was world enough, and time, to swim, take long walks, get to know his neighbours and learn about the wonder of nature.
Mr. ORTON, whose father was the Anglican clergyman of Saint Mark's Church, lived in Innisfail, a small prairie town of 1,200, which boasted more horses than cars. It was a world away from the cauldron of total war where he flourished 20 years later, winning the Military Cross.
About 30 minutes after reporting to the Royal Military College of Canada, in Kingston, Ontario, Mr. ORTON and the 41 other recruits of the class of 1940 learned that they were a "very low form of life." The upperclassmen, resplendent in their perfectly tailored uniforms and pillbox caps, were determined to turn those scruffy recruits into officers and gentlemen. Discipline could be harsh and the standards the newly minted gentlemen cadets were obliged to meet were high.
Mr. ORTON -- destined for the Royal Regiment of Canadian Artillery quickly adjusted to the frantic pace of life, which started at 5 a.m., finishing 17 hours later. With defaulters' parade, room inspections, sports, parade-square drill and classes, the class of 1940 was run ragged.
Canada declared war on Germany on September 10, 1939. By August, 1941, Mr. ORTON was in Britain.
He finally reached the fighting, in January, 1944, when he was posted to 2nd Field Regiment, Royal Canadian Artillery, in Italy. For the next 14 months, 2nd Field supported the infantry in chasing the Germans up the Italian peninsula in dozens of actions, both big and small. Mr. ORTON also acted as a forward observation officer with the 1st Battalion, Royal Canadian Regiment, a dangerous and solitary job that saw him direct artillery fire on enemy positions.
At Pontecorvo, in May, 1944, Mr. ORTON's 25-pounder guns fired 500 rounds per gun during the attack on the heavily defended Hitler Line. The Gothic Line was next, with the Germans mounting a "bitter and savage opposition," Mr. ORTON wrote. One day saw "4,000 rounds [fired] between 1600 hours and 2000 hours."
For his gallantry in action, Mr. ORTON was awarded the Military Cross on July 30, 1944.
Fighting a modern war as an artillery officer was mentally gruelling for him, since he was required to calculate complex fire plans to place his rounds exactly where they were needed. An error could mean his shells landing on Canadian troops. It was a long, deadly campaign -- made miserable with rain and mud -- as town after town fell to the Canadians.
At war's end, Mr. ORTON decided to stay in the army. In October, 1950, he was appointed second-in-command of 2nd Regiment, Royal Canadian Horse Artillery for its year-long tour of duty in Korea. For one memorable month, he commanded the regiment when the commanding officer was away. For his service, he was made a member of the Order of the British Empire.
Another highlight quickly followed. On June 2, 1953, Mr. ORTON along with three other officers from 2 Royal Canadian Horse Artillery -- formed a mounted escort in the Commonwealth contingent for the Queen when she travelled to Westminster Abbey for her coronation.
After commanding 3rd Regiment, Royal Canadian Horse Artillery in Canada and Germany from 1957 to 1961, Mr. ORTON was appointed base commander of Canadian Forces Base Shilo, Manitoba, in the late 1960s. He was also commandant of the Royal Canadian School of Artillery.
Carol SUTHERLAND- BROWN remembers her father as a social man who liked to help people. Since he was a gunner, he was also very organized. "My Dad believed any problem could be solved by plotting and graphing it. Whenever I had life challenges, he was there to plot and graph them out and take care of all logistics. My childhood memories were not so much of playing with dolls but of being taken [to see guns and tanks]."
Mr. ORTON finished his career in Turkey as Canadian military attaché. On one visit to Iraq, Mr. ORTON met the army chief of staff. Three months later, he went back and learned that the man had suffered two broken knees. His replacement was a young Saddam Hussein.
John Swaffield ORTON was born on June 19, 1918, in Innisfail, Alberta. He died of cancer on July 14 in Ottawa. He was 88. He leaves his daughter Carol, his granddaughter Marisa, his brother Fred and his sisters Molly, Joan and Ruth. His wife, Zelma, and his brother Tony predeceased him.

EISEN, Abraham
By Pamela GOLDFARB, Page A26
Doctor, father, magician. Born July 28, 1925, in Toronto. Died July 18 of leukemia in Toronto, aged 80.
Abraham EISEN was born the fourth of five children to an immigrant postal worker and a homemaker. Having lost his father while still in his teens, he worked and studied hard to fulfill his dream of becoming a doctor.
After graduating from Toronto's Harbord Collegiate Institute, he studied physics and biochemistry at the University of Toronto, and went on to its medical school. He graduated in 1951. He did an internship at Mount Sinai Hospital, followed by further study in Baltimore and New York. He never hedged about why he went to the United States: He said in those days in Toronto, it was nearly impossible for a Jewish doctor to get a post-graduate placement. When he returned to Toronto, he did a year of general surgery at Mount Sinai, followed by the opening of his private practice on July 1, 1956. My mother calculated that in his 43 years of practice in obstetrics and gynecology, he probably delivered 30,000 babies.
He was married in May of 1956. He had first met Joyce BROWN when she was a girl of 11, and he was a waiter at her father's Lake Simcoe resort. The place where he met his future wife offered him a chance to pay his way through school. Together they had five children in quick succession, bringing much joy and pride to Abe as he watched them grow into adulthood.
While he would miss family dinners, sporting events and many other aspects of daily life, there was never a time when he came home late (often he put in 18-hour work days) that he would not come into our rooms, wake each of us up one at a time, and spend five or 10 minutes talking and playing before putting us back to bed.
He was an avid sportsman and found his best talents lay in the game of squash. He competed in many tournaments, and in the late 1980s reached the semi-finals of the North American doubles in the 60-plus bracket. He liked to say that the only reason he made it that far was that other players of his vintage were either dead or disabled. That was his sense of humour; it would serve him in all aspects of his life. Whether it was at the squash club, on fishing trips or his monthly poker games, laughter was the gathering's theme.
He could do penny tricks that would leave children staring in wonderment, and never failed to make those little treasures appear out of the ears of his children and later his grandchildren. I thought this was his greatest trick: He came to my brother Paul and me one Saturday and announced that he was going to "magic" us lunch. We closed our eyes and wished for our food favourites while he recited his magic incantation. When we walked into the kitchen, there on the table was a peanut-butter sandwich for me and fried eggs for my brother. We were amazed. Later, we realized that it was pretty much our staple lunch diet, so for him the menu no trick!
His life was not only lived in Toronto, he was lucky enough to have a summer home in Muskoka. He taught all his children and grandchildren how to fish his way: catch and release. He got down on his hands and knees with the babies and taught the older kids to play gin and poker. By 2004, we were an immediate family of 21, and he loved to see every bed and couch taken (and possibly a tent set up) at the cottage so we could all be together.
My father taught each of us our life lessons well. He and my mother taught us what it meant to be in a true and equal partnership. They were always a united front. Very recently, my mother was having a bad day, and I jokingly suggested that we try to remember all the bad things about him so that it wouldn't hurt so much. "Well," I said, " he wasn't very tall, he could be a little moody, and he was never handy around the house." That is all that we could come up with, and I guess that says it all.
Pamela is Abraham EISEN's daughter.

Educator challenged status quo
Veteran trustee Mae WAESE rose to head 2 boards
Fought for breakfast clubs, English as a Second Language classes in '60s
By Amy BROWN- BOWERS, Staff Reporter, Page B2
She was Mae the mensch -- tireless, inspired and good. She got under your skin and stayed there. She made you mad, then won you over.
"She pissed people off, but more than likely she made them her Friends. She was an amazing woman," said Maria RIZZO, school trustee in the Toronto Catholic District School Board who first met Mae WAESE in 1982.
WAESE, an educational Don Quixote who fought for creative and inclusive educational reform starting in the 1960s, died of a brain tumour Wednesday. Friends and family gathered yesterday to remember and celebrate her life.
Friends don't know how old she was and her family won't say, but WAESE was known to enjoy the annual celebration of her 39th birthday.
"Mae was an advocate for making sure that all kids were served well by the system," said Councillor Howard MOSCOE (Ward 15, Eglinton-Lawrence) who met WAESE in the early 1960s.
"She said there are kids who can't learn by traditional methods and we need alternatives.... It was her dogged determination that changed education in North York in the '60s."
WAESE was a stay-at-home mom with three young children volunteering for the Home and School Association in the early 1970s when she decided to go back to school herself.
Her youngest child, James WAESE, remembers getting a letter from his mom at summer camp with her report card from Ontario Institute for Studies in Education tucked inside.
After earning a degree in adult education, she became a trustee in the North York Board of Education in 1978 and served as chairman of the North York board from 1983 to 1986.
At the same time, she was a member of the Toronto Metropolitan School Board and went on to become its chair from 1988 to 1992. She stayed as a trustee until the amalgamation of the school boards in 1998.
"She always challenged the status quo," said Jon FILION, former chair of the North York Board of Education, and councillor for Toronto's Ward 23 (Willowdale). "She was always pushing, pushing, pushing for improvement and change and to make things better for students."
FILION met WAESE when he was an education reporter for the Toronto Star in the 1980s and remembers watching her at board meetings speaking her mind even while other trustees tried to shut her down.
"They would just flatten Mae. They'd knock her down and she'd get back up," he said.
She fought for alternative schools when money was tight and she fought to keep schools open when others wanted to close them. She fought for the rights of English as a Second Language students and for the breakfast club that provides meals for hungry kids.
"We have a moral responsibility to support our children when they are in need of financial help," she said in a 1992 Star article. "You just can't teach hungry kids."
WAESE talked about diversity long before it was buzzword -- she was a founding member of the North York Race Relations Committee. Her political instincts and people skills meant that her ideas were heard and often implemented.
She was known as a skilled mediator and negotiator who kept the gears turning in the deeply divided North York board.
"The very first words that she said to me were, 'Do you want to win the battle or do you want to win the war'?" RIZZO said.
"Her skills with other people were really amazing. Her ability to understand other people and to work with them was really extraordinary," FILION added.
Besides work, WAESE was deeply involved in the Jewish community, had a full social life and was the centre of her family.
"She had the energy of five people and the enthusiasm of 10," FILION said.
"The serious truth -- she never seemed to sleep," James said. He remembers seeing her up late at night reading briefs so that she was prepared for the next day's meetings.

'I just want to see my son'
They can only see him after autopsy has been done
By Phinjo GOMBU, Staff Reporter
Linda and Frank BROWN were woken up by a 4 a.m. phone call from an acquaintance with chilling news that their son, Jermaine, had been shot dead.
But grief soon turned to anger and frustration as they spent a frantic day yesterday crisscrossing the city in a futile bid to view his body.
By day's end, the parents of 23-year-old Jermaine Lincoln BROWN, a high school high-jump champion and Humber College culinary arts student, were bewildered.
"All I want to do is see my son," Linda BROWN, a cafeteria supervisor for the Toronto school board said last night in her townhouse in the Bramalea Rd. and Steeles Ave. area of Brampton.
"I wanted to make sure that's the person they said is dead. I wanted to see his face before they cut him up and did whatever they want to do with his body."
The problem was that a girl who claimed to be their son's sister falsely identified herself as Nisha BROWN, went to 31 Division with an ex-girlfriend and identified his body.
BROWN was fatally shot Monday night on Grandravine Dr. in the Jane St. and Sheppard Ave. W. area. He had moved into an apartment there in December after being accepted by Humber College where he was training to become a chef.
Police at 31 Division told the BROWNs there was nothing they could do because their son's body had already been identified, and they would only be able to see him after an autopsy was conducted.
The BROWNs said they then drove to the city morgue on Grosvenor St. downtown where they were told they couldn't see the body because they could "contaminate" evidence.
"I really feel deprived of not being able to see my son for the last (time) the way he left this earth," Linda BROWN said. "I'm really upset. I thought the police were supposed to be working with the community and family members. Right now, they are not working with us."
The parents also said they are completely in the dark about what might have precipitated the shooting because police have yet to tell them or even officially notify them of the death.
Linda and Frank BROWN know, their son, the oldest of six children, as a kind-hearted, quiet young man whose passion was cooking.
"I can't swear for him," said Frank BROWN, who also works for the Toronto school board as an educational worker. "He's 23 years old. Anything can happen.
"In my house, I have strict rules and regulations they follow. I raised them the way I was brought up (in Jamaica) …to be sturdy. I gave him the best."
What they do remember, however, is a superb athlete who won the Ontario secondary school championships in high-jumping for Westview Centennial College on Oakwood Ave.
They said their son would always come home after work and cook up a storm for the family. Linda said his favourite meals were all things seafood: sometimes shrimp, other times lobster. He was also a fan of pasta dishes.
"He took after me," said Linda BROWN, a smile breaking out for the first time during the conversation. "He wanted to be a chef and own his own business. He loved gourmet cooking."
To fulfil his dream, she said, her son enrolled in Humber College in September for a two-year cooking course, after which he wanted to either work or open his own business somewhere in downtown Toronto.

Man killed during gunfight: Police
But uncertain if he was a shooter
Incident has 'some gang connection'
By Tracy HUFFMAN, Crime Reporter
Homicide detectives investigating a fatal shooting outside a North York apartment building believe the victim was struck during a gun battle, but they are unsure if he was a shooter.
Jermaine Lincoln BROWN, 22, was not armed when emergency crews arrived Monday night on Grandravine Dr. to find him suffering from multiple gunshot wounds.
While police continue to comb through evidence and interview witnesses, Det. Sgt. Randy CARTER, the lead homicide officer on the case, said the shooting has "some gang connection to it."
"I haven't been able to determine… fully yet whether or not he was himself shooting or whether or not he was just there," CARTER said.
Gunshots erupted in the west parking lot and moved to the front of the building where BROWN, who was studying culinary arts at Humber College, was found on the ground.
"I've received tremendous help from the community and I need that to continue," CARTER said. In particular, police need help finding a silver or green sport utility vehicle similar to a GMC Yukon or Envoy that fled the scene, near Jane St. and Sheppard Ave. W. One suspect with a firearm got in the front passenger seat after the shooting, he said.
"I'm still trying to piece together how many people were there, who was at what location when the shots were being fired back and forth."
One firearm was recovered at the scene and is undergoing ballistics testing.
BROWN, from Brampton, had been staying at the apartment building since December. He had contact with police in the past, most recently in 2005, when he was charged with sexual assault. The case was still before the courts when he became the city's 15th homicide victim.
On Tuesday, BROWN's parents, Linda and Frank BROWN, said in an interview they were upset that their requests to view their son's body prior to an autopsy were refused. They said someone who falsely said she was BROWN's sister, and an ex-girlfriend, identified the body.
Toronto police spokesman Mark PUGASH said protocol dictates that once a body has been identified, it cannot be viewed again until an autopsy is done to prevent evidence tampering.
CARTER said he apologizes to the family for upsetting them.
"I had enough information to believe that they were related to the deceased and that they could identify the person."

Peel, Durham slayings probed
Beaten Brampton man dies of injuries
In Oshawa, victim collapses near condo
By Gail SWAINSON and Amanda-Marie QUINTINO, Staff Reporters
A Brampton man found beaten with a serious head injury two weeks ago has died, becoming Peel Region's third homicide of the year.
And residents of an Oshawa neighbourhood were left asking questions about the safety of their community yesterday after a 31-year-old man was found dead Sunday, Durham Region's fourth homicide of Alan MOHABIR, who was found beaten June 15 in the area of Denlow Dr. and Verity Ct. in Brampton, remained on life support until he died at Saint Michael's Hospital on Thursday, Peel Region police said yesterday.
Homicide investigators are attempting to piece together the 20-year-old victim's last hours, but a paucity of information has left police appealing to the public for help.
"It seems like there was some sort of altercation that took place, but we are still trying to find out what exactly happened," said Const. Jennifer BRYER.
Anyone with information is asked to contact the Peel homicide bureau, 905-453-3311, ext. 3205, or Peel Crime Stoppers at 1-800-222-8477.
In Oshawa, the yellow police tape that surrounded the Centre St. S. crime scene where the region's latest homicide victim collapsed Sunday has left local residents worrying that the area has gone downhill.
"Eight, nine years ago, I was able to walk along the path alone late at night, but not anymore," said long-time resident Mike BROWN.
Durham police say emergency crews were called to a condominium building about 9 p.m. Sunday to investigate reports that a man had collapsed.
Sgt. Paul McCURBIN said the fatally injured man was found on a grassy boulevard at the corner of Mill and Centre Sts.
Homicide investigators say evidence found at the scene indicates he was killed on a paved pathway on the west side of Oshawa Creek running north from Mill St.
The spot is just behind the low-rise condo at the corner of Centre and Mill Sts. and within Storie Park.
"He was found with vital signs absent after receiving some type of sharp force trauma to his body," McCurbin said.
The man was rushed to Lakeridge Health Centre in Oshawa, where he was pronounced dead. Police are withholding his name until next of kin can be notified. An autopsy is scheduled for today.
The area has a mix of new and older homes and low-rise buildings. It is near the Motion Nightclub, where a 22-year-old woman was shot while dancing last February.
The woman didn't realize she had been shot until the next day, when an X-ray in hospital revealed a bullet lodged in her chest.

Victim, 22, well-known to police
By Betsy POWELL, Crime Reporter
There will be more room on the walls of Toronto's 13 Division police station after officers removed photographs of the city's most-recent homicide victim.
Kemar Phatado BROWN's mugshot was displayed throughout the station on Eglinton Ave. W., at Allen Rd., as a "safety precaution" for officers concerning a man who did not keep his dislike of police a secret.
The 22-year-old was pronounced dead at Saint Michael's Hospital after being shot twice in the chest at about 9: 30 p.m. Tuesday in a tiny room above a vacant store on Church Street, south of Dundas St. E. He did not live at the address.
An autopsy is scheduled for this morning.
Several witnesses: called police after hearing gunshots and seeing two figures in dark hooded sweatshirts run from the back of the building.
Homicide investigators are continuing to interview people who have come forward and review surveillance videotape from the area, Det. Sgt. Gary GIROUX said yesterday.
Police sources say while BROWN threatened police, he did not individually name officers, thereby avoiding any charges.
He had "an active criminal record for a substantial number of years," GIROUX said, standing beside an easel with a police photo of BROWN taken three weeks ago.
At the time, he was charged with assault with intent to resist arrest, assaulting a peace officer, possessing property obtained by crime and failing to comply with his recognizance, court documents show.
"His family is more than aware that he had a number of brushes with police and that was no surprise to them," GIROUX said.
BROWN was also facing an outstanding charge of assault causing bodily harm, which was laid on January 27. In April, he was charged with one count of possessing marijuana. BROWN had scores of run-ins with police and a long list of convictions for drugs and violent offences.
Police canvassed the area where the two men were seen running. Surveillance video at the rear of the building, as well as from a co-op building and the Ryerson University campus, might have captured the pair.
