Inseparable in life and death
The boys' mother, Shauna BROCK- HOWARD, has created an award in their memory to be given annually.
By Randy RICHMOND, Free Press Reporter, Wed., June 28, 2006
Blair HOWARD, left, and his brother, Byron, shown fishing in Florida last summer, died when their car hit a tree in Roswell, Georgia., last Thursday.
Last summer, Byron HOWARD decided to stay in Georgia for a while because his big brother, Blair, needed him there.
This week the two brothers returned home, each in his own casket, each holding a photograph of the other.
Their mother, Shauna BROCK- HOWARD, placed the photographs in the caskets before the trip home from Georgia to London, finding some solace in the fact her eldest sons are still together.
"They were best of Friends right from the beginning," BROCK- HOWARD said yesterday.
"I believe God made the decision to take both boys because of how close they were. If he had taken only one, the other one&hellip " she said, unable to continue.
Blair, 24, and Byron, 22, were killed in a single-vehicle crash about 4 a.m. Thursday in Roswell, Georgia., police there said.
Their 1994 Honda Accord left a curve in the road and struck a tree. Alcohol was not a factor, police said.
Their mother returned to her Oakridge home yesterday morning after arranging for the bodies to come home, distraught at the thought the caskets were separated for a while in Toronto.
Her sons' paths were separate but always intertwined, she said.
"Blair was born with a pencil in his hands. He was a talented artist."
In Grade 4, he went to Lester B. Pearson School for the Arts. He played the piano, played violin with the London Youth Symphony Orchestra and sang in the Amabile boys' choir.
"He was a little uncomfortable with his artistic side. It wasn't manly enough, so to balance that he was an avid hockey player, lacrosse player, soccer player," BROCK- HOWARD said.
After high school, Blair's artistic and "manly side" combined into a love of carpentry.
"Carpentry chose him. He loved working with wood," BROCK- HOWARD said.
Blair headed down to Georgia in 2001 with a friend on vacation and met a master carpenter who began teaching him.
"And then he met a girl and he fell in love. So he found ways to stay."
Meanwhile, Byron was making his own way.
Where Blair was born eager and intense, wiry and artistic, Byron was laid-back, not as artistic, but more solid physically.
Blair was the kind of kid who played left wing in hockey; Byron loved defence.
Like his older brother, Byron played just about every sport going.
The two led the younger three children in the family, Olivia, Brodi and Bryer. They also are survived by their father, Philip HOWARD, and stepfather Chuck CHAMBERS.
Blair was the authority.
"You will listen to your mother," he used to tell the other children.
Byron had a different way to keep the peace, BROCK- HOWARD recalled.
"Just tell her what she wants to hear," he would say.
As adults, the two sons loved to watch sports, and fish and see Friends together.
"They were opposites, but they complemented each other," BROCK- HOWARD said.
Byron went to Georgia for a short visit with his brother last summer.
But just then, Blair's relationship with his girlfriend collapsed. Byron decided to stick around his older brother.
"He stayed to look after his brother," BROCK- HOWARD said.
Her sons settled in Alpharetta, a community of about 30,000 people northeast of Atlanta. They were enjoying the good and easy times of young men free from school and financial worries.
Her sons were coming back this summer. Byron was returning to school for his electrician's papers. Blair was coming for a visit and, his mom hoped, to find work here.
Because of how her boys are coming home now, BROCK- HOWARD has decided to keep alive the way they once were.
With the help of family and Friends, she has established the Blair and Byron Howard Spirit Award, to be given annually to a student at the boys' old high school, Sir Frederick Banting.
"They were good kids. It is a crying shame," said Vicki MILES, a teacher at Banting.
"They were always in the front hallway, laughing. They were well-rounded, characters."
That is the kind of student BROCK- HOWARD wants to help.
"I would like it to be a child who isn't the smartest or most athletic or the best at anything, but honest and caring and with strong family values. This might be the thing that helps them go forward."
The award will resurrect the spirit of her sons, and her faith in life itself, BROCK- HOWARD said.
"Two of my boys are gone," she said. "I will believe in the child who gets this award."
Funeral arrangements at Westview Funeral Chapel had not been set at press time.
Donations to the Blair and Byron Howard Spirit Award can be made at Westview or with the Thames Valley Education Foundation, a registered charity affiliated with the Thames Valley District school board.

Two drown after falling through ice
Cellphone, candles save one man's life
By Robin MacLENNAN, Monday, January 30, 2006
A 22-year-old Barrie man who fell off the back of a dirt bike as it plunged into Lake Simcoe early Sunday morning pulled himself out of the water and used his cellphone to call 911.
He then sat on the ice for about four hours, waiting for help.
His two Friends who were driving the bikes when they hit a four-foot pressure crack in the ice at about 4 a.m., however, drowned in the deep water between Snake Island and Fox Island.
“I think he was just a little closer to the ice when they went in, and he was able to scramble out,” said York Regional Police Det. Rod RAMAGE.
The man, who was travelling with a survivor kit including a flashlight, candles and a cellphone wrapped in plastic inside his backpack, lit a fire on the ice to keep warm while waiting for rescue workers.
He was found by Innisfil firefighters at about 7: 45 a.m. and transported to shore in an air boat.
He was treated at Royal Victoria Hospital in Barrie for hypothermia, and police said “he'll be perfectly Okay.&rdquo
Emergency crews searched the lake near Innisfil unsuccessfully for about four hours, struggling to locate the man.
“Phone reception in the area wasn't that good and he didn't know exactly where he was,” South Simcoe Police Sgt. Brian MILLER said. “It was pretty dark out there and difficult to find him.&rdquo
The bodies of the other men were recovered by York Regional Police divers at about 3: 30 p.m., and identified as Brian DWYER, 22, of Innisfil and Randal HILTS, 22, of Bradford.
Police said the men left an Innisfil home at about 3 a.m., eventually venturing out across the ice after “joy-riding” along the shoreline.
“The surviving witness was uncertain where they went out onto the ice because they had been riding up and down the shore area for quite a while,” said Det. RAMAGE.
Riding motocross motorcycles without headlights, RAMAGE said the three “were doing the typical things that 22-year-old boys do when they get out on their motorcycles in an area where they don't have to worry about other vehicles.
“They were all over hill and dale,” RAMAGE said.
“It is my understanding they were doing their motocross activities in around the shore, on and off the ice in the shallow area, for about an hour before they decided to head across the lake.&rdquo
The trio of Friends was riding tandem across thin ice between Fox Island and Snake Island when their vehicles went into open water, police said.
They were “going for a drive around the area there, and had no specific plan to go anywhere.&rdquo
Investigators cautioned residents not to drive onto unsafe ice.
“You have to be aware of the conditions that exist and the thickness of the ice and if you're not familiar, don't go out,” York Regional Police Inspector Norn MILES cautioned. “Unfortunately, we've had a lot of these incidents over the years and they're tragic for everyone.&rdquo
Onlookers gathered at the shore off Innisfil Beach Park, straining to watch rescue efforts happening a few kilometers out in the lake.
“It's too bad; you hate to see it,” Bill ANDREWS said. “Probably young guys doing something foolish.&rdquo
Police said alcohol may have been a factor in the drownings.
Ice conditions in the area are described as unsafe because of recent warm temperatures and rain. A steady downpour drenched rescuers and those who watched from shore Sunday, as water pooled on the lake, turning ice into slush.
“I wouldn't go out there for anything right now,” ANDREWS said, shaking his head. “Just look at the conditions.&rdquo

JONES, (Annie) Angus (née McEWAN)
Peacefully, on March 19th, 2006, at her residence at Chateau Gardens, London, Ann joined her beloved husband of 71 years, Ira Elbert JONES, who predeceased her on January 3rd, 2006. Annie Angus McEWAN was born to Charles Baskerville McEWAN and Mary Lachlan ANGUS on November 23rd, 1915, in Dundas, Ontario. Her Scots heritage on both sides of her house was a continuing source of pride to her that is shared by her children. Ann was the eldest of four siblings. Two have predeceased her: Marjorie (Donald) POWERS and Gordon McEWAN, both of London, Ontario. One surviving brother, John (Jack) McEWAN, lives in Vernon, British Columbia. Ira and Ann were married on June 1st, 1934 at the Reorganized Church of Latter Day Saints in Chatham, Ontario. Ann and Ira's six children remember her with great love and pride: Ira Gordon (Pat) JONES, Waterloo, Ontario; Elbert Angus (Zibby) JONES, Bayfield, Ontario; Marjorie Ann CUNNINGHAM, London, Ontario; Dorothy Louise (Luca) RICCIO, North Vancouver, British Columbia; Douglas Murray JONES, London, Ontario and Janet Mary (Helmut RIEGGER) JONES, London, Ontario. Fondly remembering their Grandmother are twelve grandchildren: Carolyn (David) KINGSTON of Ottawa; Clark (Karen) JONES of Mississauga; Evan (Kayo) JONES of Yasu City, Shiga, Japan; Matthew (Annette WEERES) JONES and Michael (Karen NOBLE) JONES of Stratford; Linda (Tim GOODALL) CUNNINGHAM, Lisa (Ben MOOGK) CUNNINGHAM, of Toronto; Sarah (Dan INNAMORATI) CUNNINGHAM of Vancouver; Nadia MOUSSEAU of Kingston; Silvia RICCIO and Davide RICCIO of North Vancouver and Hazel MILES of London. Gifted with a prodigious memory well into her eighties, Ann continued to acknowledge family anniversaries, birthdays, graduations and other milestones. Great Grannie Annie particularly enjoyed marking special events for the youngest ones, sending cards for Easter, Hallowe'en to her seven great grandchildren: Julia KINGSTON of Ottawa; Selena JONES and Colin JONES of Mississauga; Sean Ira JONES, Yasu City, Shiga, Japan; Leah JONES of Calgary; and Clara Ann GOODALL and Cameron McEwan GOODALL of Toronto. Ann and Ira resided at various times in a number of Southwestern Ontario locations: Chatham, Dresden, Hamilton, Dundas, Walkerton, Brantford and London. Prior to moving to the Longworth Retirement Residence in 2003, they lived for many years on Glenrose Drive in Byron. In 2004, she and Ira moved together to Chateau Gardens Long Term Care Residence in London. Ann was a member of the Woodfield Branch of the Community of Christ, in London. We remember the continuing pride and admiration in which she was held by Ira, for the courage she displayed during World War 2, when she held their family together, a dedicated mother to their children, managing all the while to be cheerful and resourceful, despite her concerns for Ira's safety overseas. Most of all, we will remember a cheerful, generous, selfless woman who spent a lifetime putting others first. We love her and we are sad to see her go but we take solace in the knowledge that Mom and Dad are together again, the way it has always been and the way they would want it to be forever. Cremation has taken place. Visitation in the Needham Funeral Chapel, 520 Dundas Street, London, on Saturday, April 8, 2006 from 2: 00 p.m. until 3:00 p.m. Service from the chapel at 3:00 p.m. In lieu of flowers, a donation in Ann's honour to your favourite charity would be greatly appreciated.

MILES, James Edward
Dr. James Edward (Jim) MILES passed away peacefully on October 19, 2006 at Lions Gate Hospital, North Vancouver, British Columbia after a brief illness. Jim will be sadly missed by his wife, Gail; children Stephanie MILES (John SHERSTOBITOFF), Peter MILES and Hilary MILES; step-sons Brent (Tracy) PARKER and Michael (Tamara) PARKER. Jim was a devoted and loving grandfather to Laura, Kelly and Sara SHERSTOBITOFF, Rebecca and Jackson PARKER and Alaina PARKER. He will be much missed by his brother Garry (Barbara) MILES of West Vancouver and sister Marilyn MARTIN of North Vancouver and many nephews and nieces. Jim was born November 6th, 1928 in Victoria, British Columbia, the first child of Edgar and Winona MILES. He spent his early years in Victoria, Vancouver and Kamsack, Saskatchewan. Jim attended the University of Saskatchewan in pre-med, where he obtained his Bachelor of Science. He completed his medical degree at McGill University in Montreal. After a number of years as a successful family physician on the North Shore, he decided to pursue his interest in psychiatry, moving his young family to Kent, England for a year where he finished his training at Maudsley Hospital. Jim had a long and distinguished career in his new field. He became a full professor and head of the Department of Psychiatry at Shaughnessy Hospital in 1976 where he developed the Affective Disorders Clinic, now the Mood Disorders Association of British Columbia. Five years as the head of the Department of Psychiatry at University of British Columbia began in 1985 where he mentored many of Vancouver's currently practicing psychiatrists. During this period he held positions on many boards, committees, and panels contributing to his favorite occupation, his profession. He was instrumental in establishing a research Chair in Schizophrenia at University of British Columbia and psychiatric outreach programs in the interior of the province. Jim published many academic articles in various medical journals and of late, some very humorous pieces as well. After retiring from University of British Columbia as a Professor Emeritus, Jim established a private practice in North Vancouver. At the age of 76 he retired permanently, bringing to a close a career where he had given so much to so many. Jim had an abiding devotion to his family and had many interests including owning and training thoroughbred horses, sailing, reading, Bridge, history, art and doing cryptic crosswords. He had recently taken up oil painting and what he may have lacked in technique he more than made up for in speed, proudly dashing off one canvas after another. He was a man of great wit, intelligence, charm and presence. Jim will be lovingly remembered and greatly missed by his family and his wide circle of Friends. The family wishes to offer profound gratitude to the staff at Lions Gate intensive care unit for their kindness and support. A celebration of his wonderful life will be held on October 29 from 3 to 6 p.m. at Capilano Golf and Country Club, 420 Southborough Drive, West Vancouver, British Columbia. In lieu of flowers a donation to the Mood Disorders Association of British Columbia, #202 -- 2250 Commercial Drive, Vancouver, B.C., V5N 5P9, or the charity of your choice, would be appreciated.

2 motorcyclists die in icy plunge
Survivor drifts on Lake Simcoe ice
Officials warn about unsafe conditions
By Robin MacLENNAN, Special To The Star With files from Astrid POEI
Innisfil, Ontario -- An Innisfil man spent four terrifying hours drifting on Lake Simcoe's treacherous ice overnight yesterday after the two Friends he was with plunged through a pressure crack on their motorcycles and drowned.
The 22-year-old survivor struggled to light candles and use a flashlight and keep in touch with police using the cellphone he'd brought along in an emergency survival pack, but rescuers said it was nip and tuck.
"Phone reception in the area wasn't that good and he didn't know exactly where he was," South Simcoe Police Sgt. Brian MILLER said, speaking of the challenge facing rescuers in locating the man.
"It was dark and difficult."
Police said they were not sure if the survivor, a passenger on one of the bikes, managed to jump off as it hit the metre-wide pressure crack in the ice at about 4 a.m. He might have climbed out of the water.
The drivers -- Brian DWYER, 22, of Innisfil and Randal HILTS, 22, of Bradford -- went down with their bikes and drowned in the deep water between Snake Island and Fox Island. Their bodies were later recovered by York Regional Police divers.
Police and fire officials have cautioned residents to stay off the ice on area lakes and rivers, especially with the region's recent cycles of thaws and freezes.
"You have to be aware of the conditions that exist and the thickness of the ice and if you're not familiar, don't go out," York Regional Police Insp. Norn MILES cautioned. "Unfortunately, we've had a lot of these incidents over the years and they're tragic for everyone."
Police said the survivor, who was travelling with a survivor kit and cellphone wrapped in plastic inside his backpack, attempted to gain some warmth by lighting candles while waiting for rescue workers. He was found by Innisfil firefighters at about 7: 45 a.m. and transported to shore in an airboat. He was treated at noon at Royal Victoria Hospital in Barrie for hypothermia, abrasions and bruises, and police said "he'll be perfectly Okay." The identity of the survivor has not been released.
Emergency crews searched the lake near Innisfil unsuccessfully for about four hours, struggling to locate the man on the lake's frozen expanses.
Police said the men left an Innisfil home at about 3 a.m., eventually venturing out across the ice after "joy-riding" along the shoreline.
"The surviving witness was uncertain where they went out onto the ice because they had been riding up and down the shore area for quite a while," said York Regional Insp. Rod RAMAGE.
The three, who RAMAGE said were riding motocross motorcycles without headlights, "were doing the typical things that 22-year-old boys do when they get out on their motorcycles in an area where they don't have to worry about other vehicles.
"They were all over hill and dale, probably doing doughnuts and popping wheelies along the way," RAMAGE said. "It is my understanding they were doing their motocross activities in around the shore, on and off the ice in the shallow area, for about an hour before they decided to head across the lake."
The trio of Friends was riding tandem across thin ice between Fox Island and Snake Island when their vehicles went into open water, police said.
They were "going for a drive around the area there, and had no specific plan to go anywhere."
Onlookers gathered at the shore off Innisfil Beach Park, straining to watch rescue efforts happening near the middle of the lake.
"It's too bad, you hate to see it," said Bill ANDREWS. " Probably young guys doing something foolish."
Police said alcohol might have been a factor in the drownings.
Ice conditions in the area are described as unsafe because of recent warm temperatures and rain.
A steady downpour drenched rescuers and those who watched from shore yesterday as water pooled on the lake, turning ice into slush.
"I wouldn't go out there for anything right now," ANDREWS said, shaking his head. "Just look at the conditions."
