CLOUTER, Albert Horatio
The winds of time
Sound very happy chime.
They chime and they chime
As they pass you by,
Like a warm, soothing bath
They shower gentle breezes in your path.
Your face does not show
All the years that you know
And those sweet breezes,
They continue to blow
They leave over you
This beautiful glow.
And now we know, why your face is aglow.
And of course, that is why
All your years don't show.

City loses a 'favourite son'
By Scott DUNN, Sun Times staff, Tuesday, July 31, 2007
Bill GEORGAS cross-country skiing at the Owen Sound Golf and Country Club in February, 2005. Photo:
The end came unexpectedly for Bill GEORGAS, a man so physically impressive that at 89 he shoveled snow off his roof, in-line skated and skied.
Though small in stature, Mr. GEORGAS' remarkable physical stamina, strength and cheerful spirit were extinguished after his wife found him fallen on the stairs about 4 a.m. Monday. A post-operative examination late Monday suggested he had a heart attack that caused him to fall.
People who knew him heaped superlatives on a man Owen Sound Mayor Ruth LOVELL called a "legend," an "outstanding citizen," the "epitome of a person who loved his community," and an Owen Sound "favourite son."
Marg CAPEL, who selected Mr. GEORGAS as the feature of a "roast and toast" event in June, called him Mr. Owen Sound. She also called him a "wild man on skis."
He visited the city's 150th anniversary homecoming Meet and Greet tent Sunday for a multi-faith church service in the afternoon, then for the evening concert. His family didn't leave with him until about 10 p.m. because Mr. GEORGAS was enjoying himself, talking with people the whole night, his eldest daughter Betty GRAHAM said.
Mr. GEORGAS was the second-oldest among 10 children, all of whom were born in Owen Sound. He attended Northern Business College as a young man but he had always worked in the family movie houses, the Classic and the Savoy theatres.
When those closed he moved to another Famous Players theatre, The Roxy, as a projectionist and retired from there about 20 years ago. His daughter Betty said her dad loved life and was single-minded about things he got interested in, be it golfing, skiing, in-line skating or piano playing. He saw the good in people, as his own dad did, and was a hard worker, she said.
Freda GILLSON, Mr. GEORGAS' sister, said: "He was a very cheerful person and (was) loved by everyone who knew him. He offered encouragement and joy wherever he went."
Younger brother Jimmie GEORGAS, himself a senior champion duathlete, said "He was my mentor."
Mr. GEORGAS loved life and taking chances. When the snowbanks were high he would ski off his roof on top of them. When he was 85 and skiing alone on the West Rocks, he fell through a crevasse but managed to find a way out. He returned the next day to put down boards to protect other skiers.
He skied downhill at Blue Mountain last winter and in-line skated just a couple of weeks ago. A couple years ago he skated to Shallow Lake and back. He would head out, saying little of his destination and not carrying identification because, as he would say, everybody knew him.
In fact, he has fallen a lot and has told people he should have died 20 times over, his daughter recalled. It drove his family crazy, his daughter said.
Mr. GEORGAS's parents were Christ and Sadie GEORGAS, who were born in the Greek town of Sparta. They bought a house in Owen Sound in 1923, which still stands across from A and P.
Mr. GEORGAS was honoured by the city and by the province for his accomplishments as a volunteer. His house is full of awards and honours he received over the years. Pictures of him, usually while cross-country skiing, often appeared in The Sun Times.
In 2003 he told a reporter he'd raised about $180,000 over 23 years in the Rotary Club's annual Winterama cross-country skiing and snowmobiling fundraiser based in Wiarton.
One year he received the Rotary club's prestigious Paul Harris Award. He was inducted in the Owen Sound Sports Hall of Fame in the early 1980s for skiing.
Mr. GEORGAS played piano in local seniors' homes, jumping around excitedly as he played standards of the 1940s. His wife, Helen, would sing and invite men to dance. They did this almost daily in nursing homes around Owen Sound.
Mr. GEORGAS was also a religious man and, in April, he carried the cross for a few steps in the Good Friday procession to city hall. He admired Benny Hinn, the television preacher who claims to heal people of incurable illnesses. Mr. GEORGAS particularly admired Hinn's work to help orphans, Betty GRAHAM said.
"He had a deep compassion for underdogs and for poor people," GRAHAM said of her dad. He was known as "Bible Bill" in his youth and he believed God wanted him to do good in the community. He was a life member of the Brotherhood of Anglican Churchmen of St. George's Church in Owen Sound.
LOVELL saw Mr. GEORGAS most mornings as she walked her dog past his house. He would always ask her how she planned to keep fit that day. He once taught her to downhill ski in the Beaver Valley and left her exhausted by morning's end, while he went up and down the hill the rest of the afternoon.
"Honestly, everybody has a story because he had incredible energy, absolutely incredible energy. He defied age. The years weren't important to him."
William Christopher GEORGAS leaves his wife Helen, and their children Betty Jane and her husband Pete GRAHAM, Christopher GEORGAS and Katherine and her husband Keith McCOLL, grandchildren and great-grand children, nephews and nieces.
Visitation takes place Wednesday from 2 p.m. to 4 p.m. and 7 p.m. to 9 p.m. at Breckenridge-Ashcroft Funeral Home. The funeral service will take place at St. George's Anglican Church Thursday at 11 a.m. Interment is to take place in Greenwood Cemetery.

Crash kills London mother, daughter
Their car hit a median on Highway 401 and was struck by a transport truck.
By Randy RICHMOND, Sun Media, Wed., September 12, 2007
Grim scene: The driver of this transport truck died yesterday morning when he rear-ended a tractor trailer on Highway 401 near Colonel Talbot Road that had slowed for a police roadblock to divert traffic around an earlier fatal accident. (Derek RUTTAN Sun Media)
A London mother and daughter dedicated to helping victims of self abuse were killed yesterday in a Highway 401 crash that led to the death of a third driver hours later.
B.J. THOM, 52, also known as Elizabeth, and her daughter, Ashley GARROD, 22, were killed after their car hit the median in the east lanes of Highway 401 between Colonel Talbot Road and Wellington Road, spun out of control and was hit by a transport truck during heavy rain about 4 a.m., police said.
The driver of the tractor-trailer faces several charges, including leaving the scene of an accident causing death.
A second crash occurred just before 11 a.m. at the roadblock where police were diverting traffic from Highway 401 to Colonel Talbot Road.
A transport truck slowed down at the roadblock and a second truck slammed into it, killing the driver of the second truck.
Killed in the second crash was Timothy McDERMOTT, 50, of South Woodslee, Essex County.
The three deaths bring to nine the total killed on area roads the last 11 days and the carnage is exasperating police, said Const. Doug GRAHAM of Middlesex Ontario Provincial Police.
"Every accident on Highway 401 and 402 in the past few days was preventable. We are very concerned about all these deaths," he said.
Some drivers aren't getting the message to slow down in bad weather or at night, to leave room between vehicles and to wear seatbelts, GRAHAM said.
"That is is what is so disturbing."
Friends of THOM and GARROD expressed horror yesterday at the news the pair had died.
THOM and GARROD ran Self Abuse Finally Ends in Canada, a London-based group that helps people who hurt themselves.
THOM had successfully fought self abuse, said Trix VAN EGMOND, mental health public educator with the Canadian Mental Health Association of London- Middlesex.
"She gave help back and she did it in a personalized way. She was very funny and irreverent, I think, from going to hell and back herself."
GARROD was driving the car when the crash occurred, Ontario Provincial Police said.
Police learned of the accident from a motorist who noticed headlights from a vehicle in the south ditch along the east lanes.
Officers arrived to find the two women dead and the car "extensively damaged," GRAHAM said.
They also found a headlight at the scene.
"From the impact and from the evidence left at the scene we were able to determine it was a tractor-trailer we were looking for," GRAHAM said.
It appears the car hit the median and spun enough that the truck hit the passenger side, GRAHAM said.
Police searched area truck stops for a damaged tractor- trailer missing a headlight. They found a truck parked at the back of the Flying J truck stop south off Highway 401 near Highbury Avenue about two hours later, GRAHAM said.
The driver was inside the truck, he added, and at first refused to leave the cab, .
"He made no effort to contact police or return to the scene," GRAHAM said.
Stefan FOGIEL, 61, of Acton, has been charged with two counts of failing to remain at the scene of an accident causing death, resisting arrest, failing to maintain log books and failing to have a pre-trip inspection, Ontario Provincial Police said.
FOGIEL made a brief court appearance before Justice of the Peace Patricia HODGINS yesterday.
White-haired with glasses and wearing a white T-shirt with a Bass Beer logo, FOGIEL told HODGINS he wanted a Polish interpreter for his court appearances.
Assistant Crown attorney Brian WHITE/WHYTE ordered FOGIEL be kept in custody. He is to make a video court appearance today.
The second crash yesterday occurred only minutes after police had removed the London women's crumpled blue car from the scene of the first incident.
"The lead transport truck was slowing down. The one behind slammed into it. It was quite an impact," GRAHAM said.
The driver of the first transport, Harpreet PANNU, 29, of Brampton, suffered non-life-threatening injuries.
There was no reason for the collision, GRAHAM said.

Fanshawe student aimed to help others
Ashley GARROD, killed in a Highway 401 crash, was studying for child, youth work.
By Daniela SIMUNAC, Sun Media, Thurs., September 13, 2007
Ashley GARROD seemed destined for a career helping others.
Working alongside her mother to help those struggling with self abuse, the 22-year-old Fanshawe student was in her second year studying to become a child and youth worker.
The mother and daughter were killed Tuesday after their car was hit by a transport truck in the east lanes of Highway 401 between Colonel Talbot Road and Wellington Road.
It was the first of two deadly 401 crashes that day.
The driver of the tractor-trailer faces charges, including failing to remain at the scene of an accident causing death.
GARROD was described yesterday by her peers as being "extremely bright," "always smiling" and "creative."
Her mother, 52-year-old B.J. THOM, also known as Elizabeth, was executive director of Self Abuse Finally Ends in Canada, a London-based group that helps people who inflict pain on themselves.
"It was such a shock when I heard," said Mary GRAHAM, the founder of Self Abuse Finally Ends. "B.J. was a very kind and caring person. She was just amazing."
THOM, a Toronto native, took over the group from Graham in 1998. She battled with self abuse for years, GRAHAM said.
Fanshawe College spokesperson Jeff SAGE said students and staff who knew the mother and daughter were deeply saddened by the news of their deaths.
"It's a huge loss to the social services community."
Students can meet with counsellors and chaplains at the college to help them with their grief, he said.
Only hours after GARROD and THOM were killed, a second fatal crash occurred where a roadblock had been set up to divert traffic from the scene.
As a transport truck slowed down for the roadblock, a second transport hit it.
Timothy McDERMOTT, 50, of Essex County, driver of the second transport, was killed.
Western Region Ontario Provincial Police report there have been 10 fatal crashes in September, resulting in 12 deaths, many which could have been prevented.
"This trend is very distressing," said Const. Doug GRAHAM of Middlesex Ontario Provincial Police. Speed, following too closely and not paying attention appear to be the major factors, he said.
"If people are in a hurry, they drive aggressively," said GRAHAM, adding that following too closely and driving too fast were factors in McDERMOTT's death.
"Thousands of other cars had made that merge into the road closure without a collision," he said.
"He paid the ultimate price for driving incorrectly."
Highway Safety Tips
Calling the recent spate of deadly crashes on local roads "distressing," Ontario Provincial Police offer the following safety tips:
- Slow down.
- Leave about four car spaces between your vehicle and the next.
- Concentrate on your driving.
- Leave 10 minutes early so you won't be as tempted to rush if you come across traffic delays.
- Drivers who see a collision on a highway should pull over to a safe place and offer assistance when it's possible or get to the next exit and call police.

London man dies in fiery crash
The identity of the victim in the fatality near Lucan has not been released.
By Joe BELANGER, Sun Media, Wed., October 10, 2007
Fatal: Doug GRAHAM, media officer with Middlesex Ontario Provincial Police, examines the burnt wreckage of a pickup truck at the scene of a collision that happened at 11 a.m. yesterday on Highway 4, just north of the Clandeboyne curve. The driver, and sole occupant of the pickup, which witnesses: say swerved into the path of an oncoming cement truck, was pronounced dead at the scene. (Susan BRADNAM Sun Media)
A head-on crash near Lucan between a pickup truck and a cement truck early yesterday killed a London man when the pickup exploded in flames.
The crash followed a deadly long weekend on Southwestern Ontario roads, with three people killed and another left fighting for life in hospital.
witnesses: to yesterday's crash along Highway 4, and its aftermath, painted a picture of sudden horror.
"There was lots of fire," said Londoner Gavin DOUCHERTY, who passed by the scene moments after the crash.
"There were (vehicle) parts everywhere along the road. They were trying to put the fire out with small extinguishers," he said.
An unidentified driver of a second pickup truck said he was following the cement truck shortly before 11 a.m.
"There was a huge burst of dust and a loud bang. I saw a pickup sliding across the road and then the cement truck rolled to a stop ahead of me," said the unidentified man.
The victim -- a man in his 20s, whom police hadn't publicly identified died instantly, Middlesex Ontario Provincial Police said. [The victim was subsequently identified as Ivan STIMAC.]
The cement truck driver, John DICKSON/DIXON, 42, wasn't hurt.
The crash occurred about eight kilometres north of Lucan and Mooresville Drive.
The northbound pickup crossed the centre line and collided with the southbound cement truck, Ontario Provincial Police said.
The impact appeared to have happened unexpectedly at full speed, with no tell-tale skid marks suggesting braking by either truck.
A kilometre-long stretch of highway was closed for hours as police investigated and road workers cleaned up.
The unidentified man from the second pickup said he went to check on the cement truck driver after the crash.
"I could tell (the pickup driver) was gone, so I went over to the cement truck and helped (the driver) get his door open and helped him from the cab. He was okay."
About 100 metres of highway was littered with debris from both trucks, a large tire from the cement truck thrown into a field 20 metres away.
The pickup, almost unrecognizable, was charred and torn, and the road badly scarred.
The Lucan-Biddulph fire department put out the blaze.
Meanwhile, a 30-year-old Bayham Township man was fighting for his life in hospital yesterday after the pickup he had been driving went out of control and rolled before hitting a tree Monday night.
The name of the victim, thrown from the pickup, wasn't released.
Elgin Ontario Provincial Police said the crash occurred about 11: 40 p.m. near the intersection of Talbot Line (Hwy. 3) and Hacienda Road in Malahide Township.
Police said it appeared the truck hit two road signs before rolling and hitting the tree.
Malahide Fire Department and Elgin-Saint Thomas Emergency Medical Services raced to the scene and found the driver, suffering "severe" trauma.
Taken to Saint Thomas airport, he was flown to London Health Sciences Centre where he was in critical condition.
Earlier Monday, a Sarnia man was killed after he lost control of his car and was ejected from the vehicle.
Phillip KREMER, 30, of Sarnia, was driving north on Brigden Side Road near Confederation Line about 6 p.m. when his car went into one ditch, crossed the road and ended up in another ditch. Kremer was pronounced dead at the scene.
Huron Ontario Provincial Police said a 19-year-old woman was killed at 3: 30 p.m. Monday when her car rolled on Goshen Line in South Huron.
Jolene UNWIN, of South Huron, was thrown from the car and killed.
In another crash, Friday at 6 p.m., an 81-year-old man died from a medical condition after a two-car crash on Goderich Street in West Huron.
Deborah DILLON of Huron East is charged with failing to yield from a private driveway.

John's dedicated care of Edith in her battle with Alzheimer's disease was inspiring to us all and touched our hearts deeply. John taught us the importance of laughter and the value of family and Friends. Hoping to "live to be as old as his jokes" was a favourite expression of his and we are proud that he did just that. His kindness and gentle sense of humour will be greatly missed and his memory cherished. Genevieve Schneider's kindness to both John and Edith in recent years has been greatly appreciated by the family.

WAINWRIGHT, Audrey Beatrice (née JACKSON)
Mother, grandmother, volunteer, bridge player, singer. Born August 5, 1903, in Toronto. Died September 17 of natural causes in Vancouver, aged 104.
By Deborah K. WAINWRIGHT, Page L6
In the end they were still there: that incredible sparkling smile in her bright blue eyes, and a song. At 104, my grandmother was singing and sparkling to the end.
Audrey Beatrice JACKSON began her journey in 1903. Her mother, Elizabeth GRAHAM, was fifth-generation Canadian. Her father, Herbert JACKSON, an immigrant from the United Kingdom, worked at The Montreal Star.
His love of words helped foster her voracious reading habit. Her longevity can only be chalked up to stubbornness.
Although the family lived in Montreal, Audrey's summers were spent at Ontario's Sparrow Lake. Photographs show her and her pals on the running board of a Model T Ford and in a cedar strip canoe.
In the 1920s, she pushed the gender barrier while working as assistant to future supermarket mogul Theodore Pringle Loblaw. (Her future husband would command her to leave that job.)
Handsome British ex-pat Charlie WAINWRIGHT won her heart. In 1932, they were married and moved to Windsor, Ontario, where Charlie worked at the Canada Life Assurance Company. They had three children; two boys and a girl.
Audrey could never sit still and volunteering became her passion. She played a major role in Toronto's Parent Teacher Association.
Raising three kids during the Great Depression and the Second World War was a great challenge but one she faced with determination and pride.
A special memory passed on to me was the VE Day celebration when Audrey took her children to the candy store and told them they could buy anything they wanted - a big extravagance marking the importance of the day.
In 1947, Charlie was transferred to Vancouver, and there Audrey found ways to feed her volunteer enthusiasm. In the late 1960s, now a widow, she became a Meals on Wheels volunteer and continued to do this well into her 80s.
When she moved into a retirement home, she continued to volunteer, helping new residents get settled.
Audrey played both lawn bowling and bridge with a fierce competitiveness. Her bridge club met every Tuesday for more than 50 years. Audrey cheated like a criminal.
Five years ago, Audrey was the matron of honour at my wedding. Escorted down the aisle by two of her eight grandchildren, she smiled at me as I said my vows and held my hand as I signed the register.
And in all these years she sang: Roll out the Barrel, Don't Sit Under the Apple Tree, Hey Good Lookin', words forgotten replaced by words made up.
The day before she died we sang together.
Deborah K. WAINWRIGHT is Audrey's granddaughter.

Doctor won Military Cross for bravery in a raging tank battle in North Africa
Trained in Toronto, he was seconded to the British Army to become a battalion medical officer at Tobruk, writes Sandra MARTIN. He was captured and spent the rest of the war treating PoWs
By Sandra MARTIN, Page S12
Shy, smart and athletic, Allen GRAHAM graduated from medical school a few months before Canada entered the Second World War. Less than two years later he had exchanged his intern's whites for a khaki uniform. As a member of the medical corps, Lieutenant GRAHAM was not supposed to be directly involved in fighting the enemy. Instead, he was expected to provide medical services when soldiers fell ill, and to care for the wounded. Instead, he was decorated for bravery in North Africa, captured by the Germans and spent most of the war behind enemy lines treating the sick and dying in prisoner of war Camps.
Allen Frederic GRAHAM was born in the middle of the First World War, the third of four children of Doctor Joseph and Eleanor (née BOYD) GRAHAM. On his mother's side he was the grand_son of Sir John Alexander BOYD, a very prominent lawyer and judge in the late 19th century. After Allen's father died when he was 11, the bereaved boy's godfather, J.P. BICKELL, the millionaire mining executive and part-owner of the Toronto Maple Leafs, provided the funds to send him to St. Andrew's College in 1927.
Boxing Champion
In his six years at the boarding school for boys located in Aurora, Ontario, Allen excelled both academically and athletically. He played cricket and was on both the first rugby and hockey teams and was the boxing champion in June, 1932, according to the school's records. He was also a prefect and won the Old Boy's Medal in math when he graduated in 1933.
After St. Andrew's, he went to the University of Toronto, graduating in medicine in 1939. He had served in the General Reserve of Officers Royal Canadian Army Medical Corps (R.F.) while he was at university, and was an intern at the Toronto General Hospital when the Second World War broke out. On July 1, 1941, he enlisted as a lieutenant in the Royal Canadian Army Medical Corps. He was quickly seconded to the Royal Army Medical Corps and shipped to England for training and then to Cairo. The British got a bonus in Lt. GRAHAM, according to his family, because he introduced his cricket-playing colleagues to the North American game of baseball.
He probably first saw action with British Forces at Tobruk, the heavily fortified and strategically located fortress in Libya that was hotly contested by Axis and Allied powers. But it was his courageous actions at the Gulf of Sidra, a body of water on the northern coast of Libya, that earned him promotion to the rank of captain and the Military Cross "in recognition of gallant and distinguished service in the Middle East."
The citation, which was published in the Canada Gazette on November 5, 1942, stated: "During the attack on El Sidra on 5 June 1942, this officer [Capt. Allen Frederic GRAHAM] was the battalion medical officer. He followed closely behind the attacking tanks, but realizing that a smokescreen put down by the enemy obscured his view, he brought his un-armoured vehicle to the forefront of the tank battle. There, in his truck or on foot, despite the battle raging around him, and the intense artillery and machine-gun fire of the enemy, he calmly proceeded from one damaged tank to another, evacuating the casualties and rendering first aid. He showed complete disregard for his own personal safety in the execution of his duty and his bravery was responsible for saving many lives."
Capt. GRAHAM was captured during the offensive led by The Desert Fox, German Field Marshal Erwin Rommel, and his Afrika Korps Panzer tanks on Tobruk in May and June of 1942. (Tobruk remained under Axis control until the Allies re-took it after the Second Battle of El Alamein in November, 1942). After his capture, he continued working as a doctor, but tended to Allied prisoners of war from all over the world.
He was sent first to Italy "in such a dilapidated aircraft that he doubted they would reach their destination," according to an account written by W.G. Cosbie in his book, The Toronto General Hospital 1819-1965: A Chronicle, and then to Lamsdorf in Poland, the notorious Stalag VIII-B (later renumbered Stalag-344) that had been the site of PoW camps since the Franco-Prussian War of 1870-71. It was there that the Germans had incarcerated Polish PoWs after invading Poland in 1939. Approximately 100,000 Allied PoWs eventually spent time in this over-crowded camp.
After having been incarcerated in Lamsdorf for nine months, Captain GRAHAM was moved to Stalag Luft III, a primary PoW camp for Allied officers in Sagan, about 170 kilometres southeast of Berlin. This camp was famous for the number of times PoWs attempted to flee their captors, including the major break from the British compound on March 24, 1944 that was the basis for the book and the movie entitled The Great Escape. Of the almost 80 prisoners who crawled out of camp through a tunnel 102 metres feet in length, dug nine metres below ground level, only three made it to neutral territory. The rest were recaptured, and 50 of them were executed.
Death March
Capt. GRAHAM's main job, according to an interview that he gave to The Globe and Mail on his return to Canada in June, 1945, was taking care of prisoners "who were unable to march." As the balance of power shifted after the D-Day invasion of Normandy in June, 1944, and Allied forces moved eastward through France and westward from Russia hoping to join up west of Berlin, the Germans began evacuating some of their PoW camps by forcing their prisoners on "death marches," or by cramming them into box cars on railway lines. Capt. GRAHAM's patients were the PoWs who were too weak or sickly to be transported.
Like many veterans, Capt. GRAHAM didn't like to discuss the horrors he had seen and experienced, but he did tell his daughters how frustrating it had been to try to treat PoWs when he had virtually no medical supplies. He was always performing triage and making horrific decisions about who was likely to die and who might survive with a dose of his paltry drugs. When the first Red Cross parcels, containing the miracle drug penicillin, arrived late in the war, he was jubilant.
The Russians liberated Capt. GRAHAM's camp in March, 1945, and he finally began his long trek home. He told his family later that the Russians separated the officers from the enlisted ranks and fed them a meal of pigs' feet slathered with sour cream, washed down with vodka. It was far too rich for men accustomed to nothing more nutritious than black bread and water. Capt. GRAHAM was so nauseated that he went outside to be sick and fell head first into an open grave.
Many of the troops and the other PoWs began looting German houses, but all that Capt. GRAHAM wanted was a knife and a fork and a napkin ring - symbols of the civilized life he had left behind three years earlier. The GRAHAMs still have that "liberated" napkin ring, dated 1576.
Along with other Canadian PoWs, representing 48 different ranks, he travelled with Russian troops by box car, bicycle and on foot through war-devastated Poland and Ukraine. The Canadian PoWs embarked by ship from Odessa on the Black Sea. Capt. GRAHAM arrived at Union Station in Toronto on June 12, 1945, where he was greeted by his widowed mother and by a reporter and a photographer from The Globe and Mail.
Two months later, on Victory over Japan day in mid-August, 1945, he met Helen HAWKER at a celebratory party at his mother's big house on St. Clair Avenue in Toronto. Ms. HAWKER, who had arrived with another man, noticed tall, skinny Capt. GRAHAM sitting alone on a sofa under the stairs. Wondering who he was, she asked her friend, James GRAHAM, the veteran's name. "Oh, that's my brother, Allen," he replied, according to a well-told family story. "He's just back from the war. Don't pay any attention to him. He's boring." Ignoring this caution, Ms. HAWKER introduced herself and spent the rest of the evening by Capt. GRAHAM's side - while her date finally went home alone.
Elopement
Five months later, they eloped to New York, where they were married on January 28, 1946. This past January they celebrated their 61st wedding anniversary. Together, they raised two daughters, Shari Graham FELL and Annabel GRAHAM.
After Capt. GRAHAM was demobilized, he returned to his medical studies, qualified as a specialist in internal medicine and became a Fellow of the Royal College of Physicians (Canada) in the late 1940s. Doctor GRAHAM had privileges at Toronto General Hospital for many years, and saw patients at his offices in the Medical Arts Building at St. George and Bloor Streets in midtown Toronto for more than 50 years.
The GRAHAMs summered at Goodcheer Island in Georgian Bay and spent winters and weekends at "Hawksprings," their home in the Hockley Valley. Doctor GRAHAM finally retired when he was 80. After a long, healthy life, he fell ill last month with interstitial pneumonitis, a disease that is not usually responsive to antibiotics and causes a progressive shortness of breath.
Allen Frederic GRAHAM, M. C, was born in Toronto on October 2, 1915. He died in Toronto General Hospital on Wed., October 24, 2007. He was 92. Predeceased by his three siblings, he is survived by his wife Helen, his daughters Shari and Annabel, four grandchildren, two great-grandchildren and his extended family.

Police fatally shoot man in Kitchener
By The Canadian Press, Page A7
Kitchener, Ontario -- A man was fleeing with stolen prescription drugs when he was shot and killed Tuesday night by a Waterloo regional police officer.
The death of Trevor GRAHAM, 26, of Kitchener marked just the second time in 30 years that a local officer has killed anyone with a service pistol.
Mr. GRAHAM was leaving a Shoppers Drug Mart store at about 9: 30 p.m. when two uniformed officers responding to a robbery call met him in the front vestibule between two sets of doors.
There was a brief exchange before one of the officers shot Mr. GRAHAM once in the chest.
Frank PHILLIPS, a spokesman for the provincial special investigations unit, couldn't say if Mr. GRAHAM was armed or if there was a struggle before the fatal shooting.
"I don't know that for sure," he said. "We have to find out exactly what led the officer to draw her pistol and fire."
The special investigations unit, which looks into all police incidents in which civilians are killed or seriously injured, has assigned five investigators and three forensic technicians to the case.
The constable who fired the fatal shot, a five-year police veteran, remains on active, front-line duty.
"There's no reason to suspend her," Inspector Bryan LARKIN said. "There's no reason to reassign her."
