Police identify murder-suicide victims
Kathryn KNUDSEN and Douglas James BROWNE had a tempestuous 18-month relationship.
By Jennifer O'BRIEN, Sun Media, Fri., September 14, 2007
The man and woman killed in a murder-suicide in a Sarnia park this week had a rocky relationship for about 18 months, police said yesterday.
They were identified as Kathryn KNUDSEN, 41, of Sarnia and Douglas James BROWNE, 60, of St. Clair Shores, Michigan., but originally from Simcoe.
Autopsies showed both KNUDSEN and BROWNE died of gunshots, police said.
The shootings took place in daylight Tuesday in a busy parking lot at Centennial Park on Front Street, just hours before a scheduled concert.
Police released few details about either person, but Const. Bill BAINES said they had "an on again, off again relationship."
Police have wrapped up the investigation, he said, but are trying to figure out more about the weapon that was used and where it came from.
He said police don't have much information on the family life of either BROWNE or KNUDSEN, who moved to Sarnia two or three years ago. BROWN had lived in the U.S. since 1981.
KNUDSEN lived in a Front Street apartment building and didn't work, police said.

GALPIN, Doctor Richard Robertson
Was born in Vancouver, British Columbia, on May 29, 1915, first child of his parents Alfred and Louise GALPIN. His father worked as an official with Canadian Customs and Immigration, his mother maintained their home. Richard was the third generation of the family born in Vancouver. He was joined in a few years by his beloved sister Esther Louise (who later married C.G. (Bud) KILLAM. They are survived by their children, son Richard (Veronica), daughter Nancy SINCLAIR (Richard,) and son Michael (Lynette) all of Vancouver). He grew up in Vancouver, attending public schools. He graduated from Kitsalino High School, and attended the University of British Columbia, where he received his Bachelor's degree. When he spoke about this time in his life, he remembered the Friendships he had, and the love of his family. During this time he held many part time jobs that shaped his outlook on life, including working as a lumberjack, streetcar motorman, and on the railroad. As a young man, he enjoyed sailing, music and the outdoors, and played rugby for the Merelomas. His love of music has always been central to his life, and started with piano lessons as a boy. While attending University of British Columbia, he was introduced to a friend of his sister's, Helen STEVENSON, who he courted and married. After graduating from University of British Columbia, he attended Medical School at McGill University, and received his doctorate in 1943. After graduation, he was immediately assigned to service aboard the HMCS Waterford. He served through the remainder of World War 2 in the Canadian Navy and saw combat throughout the Atlantic Theater as a ship's surgeon. His decorations include: The Battle of Atlantic Medal, Normandy Star, Defense of Britain Medal, and the Victory Medal. He continued to have an affiliation with the Canadian Navy until his death, rising to the rank of Rear-Admiral (Reserves). He relished this connection to the navy throughout his life. He was particularly proud of his Honorary United states Naval Insignia, including Surface command, and Naval Aviator (U.S.S. Nimitz). He was also an honorary member of the Detroit Navy League. In 1949 Richard emigrated to the United States to begin his Pediatric training at Henry Ford Hospital in Detroit. He completed this and became Board Certified and a Fellow of the American Academy of Pediatrics. He joined Doctor Lloyd Kemp in his office at the corner of Brown and Southfield, and joined the staff at Beaumont Hospital when it was a single building lying on the outskirts of the city. He went on to practice pediatrics in the same location for over thirty years, caring for multiple generations from the same families. During his clinical practice he became especially interested in early childhood development. With his belief in the importance of nurturing this special period of a child's development and through the strength of his efforts, he founded the Neuro-Education Center at Beaumont Hospital. From early shoe-string budgets, he shepherded the center through it's early years, and maintained an interest in 'the Center' for the rest of his life. It has now become the Center for Human Development at Beaumont Hospital. He and Helen had four children Kenneth, Peter, Lindley and Sheila. The children were raised in Birmingham. During this time Richard and Helen were involved in many community affairs from the Birmingham Jazz Festival, the Birmingham Kite Festival to the origins of the Birmingham Bloomfield Art Center, and were members of Christchurch Cranbrook. During this time he was an avid competitive sailor, a Member of Crescent Sail Yacht club. He passed on his love of music and sailing to his children. Helen and Richard divorced in 1970. In 1973 he was introduced to Maxine RICH by mutual Friends. They courted for two years and went on to be married in 1975. The marriage lasted until their deaths. As a couple they were inseparable. As well as traveling, they loved to entertain at Maxine's house in Orchard lake, were avid ballroom dancers and enjoyed boating on Cass Lake. Richard is survived by his first wife Helen GALPIN of Comox, British Columbia and son Peter (Nina) and their twin children Akira and Mikiko, daughter Lindley (Carey) and her children Karen and Amy, Father-in-law to Mary BODO (Kenneth,) daughter Sheila MEREDITH and her children Thyra and Nedra, and their children Walter, Ella and Daniel. Stepchildren, Tina BROWNE (Charles) and their children, Paul, Theodore, and Isabel, Todd RICH (Denise) and their children P.J. and Zachary. In lieu of flowers the family and Doctor GALPIN request donations to either Mariner's Church Music Fund, 170 East Jefferson, Detroit, Michigan 48226 or the Center For Human Development, Beaumont Hospital, 1695 West 12 Mile Road, Suite 120, Royal Oak, Michigan. While the world may seem a darker place without the light of his smile, his skill as a raconteur and his joy at the piano, his contribution to the world has been great, and we carry him with us always.

HALL, Oswald, PhD, LLD, F.R.S.C. (18 January 1908-31 August Born in Lily Plains, northern rural Saskatchewan, and one of nine children, Oswald came to be one of the early members of the sociological profession in Canada. He studied at Queens, McGill and Chicago, and taught at Brown and McGill where he served 16 years, many as chairman. Following a visiting professorship at Tulane University he joined the faculty at the University of Toronto in 1956.

After retiring from the University of Toronto, he held sessional appointments with the University of British Columbia, the University of Calgary, the University of Waterloo, the University of Guelph, Trent University and Memorial University.
He enjoyed a rich and rewarding career of teaching and research in the early years of what was then an exciting and new area of academic endeavour.

Predeceased by his wife Florence HALL (née TANNER.) He is survived by his sister Kathleen HAMILTON, his son Frank, daughter Mona (BROWNE,) granddaughter Christina HALL, and many nephews and nieces and their children. His intellect, presence and humour are now gone, and it has created a void.
