It is with the deepest sorrow and grief that we must announce the passing on Friday, December 7, 2007 of our incredible and wonderful husband, father, grandfather and great-grandfather. His dearest devoted and beloved wife and best friend, Mary, was by his side, as always. Everyone who knew them admired their truly remarkable and precious love. They had been in love, devoted and inseparable since childhood. A rare, exceptional and remarkable love, one to be greatly admired and emulated by all. David was the most adored and treasured father, friend, mentor and first love to daughters Betsy FRUITMAN and Lynda WINE, and a most admired and loved father-in-law and friend to Lou FRUITMAN and Fred WINE.

David was a gentleman and gentle man, filled with love, compassion and integrity. He touched everyone in his life with his kindness. He was admired and loved by all who knew him as an exceptional husband, loving father, grandfather and great-grandfather. He was a dedicated and devoted family man. We loved him so very much and we were so proud of him, that to describe our loss and to express how much we will miss him is just not possible. As our family's guiding light, he will truly shine in our hearts and memories forever.

MINETT, E. Everet (February 23, 1918-september 5, 2007)
Letting go when he was at peace, feeling the love of four generations of family. As a boy and a young man, Everet exhibited extraordinary gifts. He was a brilliant student. He attended University of Toronto Schools where he excelled in classics, languages, science, and music. He later studied math, physics, and chemistry at University of Toronto (Trinity College) and subsequently did graduate work in physics at Massachusetts Institute of Technology. At age 8, Everet assumed a large measure of family leadership when his father died. Everet discovered his perfect love at age 15 when he saw Alice Caroline PARKER as an angel in a Christmas pageant at St. George's Church in Guelph, Ontario. They were married in 1941 and raised a family of 5 children as they traveled with extended stays in Norwalk, Connecticut, Oak Ridge, Tennessee, Bryn Mawr, Pennsylvania, Rochester, New York, and Toronto, Ontario, where Alice currently lives. But Everet's and Alice's lifelong geographical passion was Cognashene, Georgian Bay. Along with his wife and young children, Everet fashioned a magical summer paradise. The 40's, 50', 60's, and 70's were exciting times for a gifted scientist in the business world. Everet played significant roles in the Manhattan Project (40's), in the development of RCA's ENIAC and Remington-Rand's UNIVAC computer systems (50's), in senior positions at Xerox (60's), and as director of University of Toronto's UTLAS (70's). In addition, during the 70's and 80's Everet and wife, Alice, worked side by side at their own import and distribution venture in Toronto, The Canadian Tumbler Company. Everet loved us all and was an inspirational mentor. He taught us about fulcrums and levers, and that anything was possible. His children will never forget that inspiration: Peggy WILLARD and her husband, Joe; Charles MINETT and his wife, Nina; Doug MINETT; Jane MINETT and her husband, David KEITH and Bill MINETT and his wife, Teresa. Everet's grandchildren and great-grandchildren will also miss their loving grandfather: Doug WILLARD and his wife, Lorri, and their son, Owen; Suzanne WILLARD; Charlie MINETT; Arthur MINETT; George MINETT; Elizabeth MINETT; Ben MINETT and his wife, Stephanie; Hannah MINETT, her husband, Mike VANSTONE, and their sons, Quinn and Oleh; Alice KEITH; Andy KEITH, Chris KEITH and his wife Sue FRASER, and their children, Ellie and Gillian; Karina KEITH and her husband Brian THOMPSON/THOMSON/TOMPSON/TOMSON, and their children Sydney, Kira, and Adam; and Bill MINETT and his wife, Teresa, and their children, Everet, Wesley, and Sean. The family wishes to thank the caring and wonderful staff of Saint Michael's Hospital, Toronto. In lieu of flowers, donations to Saint Michael's Hospital Foundation: www.smh.toronto.on.ca or 416-864-5000. Calling hours at Morley Bedford funeral home, 159 Eglinton Avenue West, Toronto on Sunday, September 9th from 7 p.m. to 9 p.m. and on Monday from 7 p.m. with service to follow at 8 pm.

WILLIAMS
In memory of our son Bob.
Through years hurry by, and distance seems longer,
Yet our yearning for you has never dimmed.
Things that you did and said, keep cropping back.
Fond memories of joys, and trials we shared.
Not many things are left now, except fond memories.
And Bobby-Jo who was a spitting image of you as a baby.
We thank God, that at least in his providential care
He left something of you for us to share.
We still miss you very much,
Bob, even though it’s been thirty-one long years that you left.
Someday we’ll share in glory, the things you see now.
Where no parting will be felt, but bliss forever more.
(Written by his father Stan WILLIAMS, deceased in 1998)

WILLIAMS
In memory of a brother and a friend, Robert (Bob) John Charles WILLIAMS - October 8, 1953- May 30, 1976.
At twenty-two, your mind was clear, your life so full of joy.
With the body of a grown man and the heart of a little boy.
You earned your way, you laughed and sang, and when the work was done,
You relished life and knew no bounds that could contain your fun.
You fell in love, you lived your life unabashed and unashamed.
You made us laugh as your spirit soared like an eagle’s heart untamed.
You knew our God, and felt his love, when quiet moments came,
And He knew of you, and blessed your life, in Jesus precious name.
And then you fell into his arms, and as He drew you to his chest.
He whispered softly in your ear, the Father knows what’s best.
Now in our lives we feel a void and at times feel so alone.
We shed our tears for the loss we feel, because God took you home.

Crash victims cling to life
Five people die in crashes in a devastating weekend on Southwestern Ontario roads.
By Kelly PEDRO, Sun Media, Tues., June 5, 2007
Two people were clinging to life in a London hospital yesterday after a deadly weekend on Southwestern Ontario roads claimed five lives.
The weekend deaths were among 11 lives lost on area roads in the past 17 days.
"It's been a very devastating weekend for the officers investigating the crashes, as well as the families left behind to deal with the tragedies," said Western Region Ontario Provincial Police Sgt. Dave Rektor.
"The worst part is, it's all preventable."
In the most recent death, a 44-year-old London man was killed when the motorcycle he was driving collided with a pickup truck near Saint Marys.
The pickup was travelling south on the 15th Line when it collided in the intersection with the motorcycle travelling west on Zorra Road 92 about 6 p.m. Sunday, said Oxford Ontario Provincial Police.
The intersection is controlled by stop signs on the 15th Line, police said. Roads were dry and clear at the time.
Other weekend deaths:
- Joel SCHILLER, 55, of Tecumseh died after the all-terrain vehicle dune buggy he was driving on Northville Road south of Port Franks, rolled into a ditch Sunday afternoon. SCHILLER suffered fatal head injuries. Ontario Provincial Police are investigating.
- April JILLSON, 22, of Corunna and Jennifer SEABROOK, 33, of London, were killed after the car they were in collided with another vehicle at Littlewood Drive and Carriage Road Friday afternoon. JILLSON and SEABROOK were travelling west on Littlewood, south of London at the time. The intersection is controlled by stop signs on Littlewood, Ontario Provincial Police said.
- Three hours later, Judy Mae ABRAM, 51, of Muncey died after the car she was driving failed to stop for a stop sign on Jubilee Drive and Muncey Road and collided with an embankment. Two passengers, Marie GROSBECK, 47, and Morgan WILLIAMS, 23, also of Muncey, were in critical condition in a London hospital yesterday.
Though the Ontario Provincial Police have increased visibility and public education efforts, the safe-driving message seems to be falling on deaf ears, Rektor said.
"Unless the public buys into this message that they need to change their driving, then they could be next," he said.
"If people felt that way, they might reconsider the way they're driving every day."

From cub reporter to managing editor, BRIGLIA did it his way
By Joe MATYAS, Sun Media, Thurs., June 14, 2007
In the lexicon of old-school reporters and editors, it was "30" for Anthony John BRIGLIA on Tuesday.
It was the end of the story for a man known to colleagues at The London Free Press simply as "Jack."
BRIGLIA died at 81 at Mount Hope Long Term Care Centre in London after what his family described as "a heroic struggle" with Parkinson's disease.
For about four decades, BRIGLIA worked as a reporter, editor and columnist at The Free Press, topping off his career as managing editor from 1978 to 1985.
He started, at age 16, as a part-time sports stringer.
Although it was an era of rough, gruff editors, the young scribe with the compassionate, gentle nature wasn't deterred from a newspaper career.
But he did it his way.
After earning a journalism degree at University of Western Ontario, BRIGLIA obtained a master's degree at Columbia University in New York City.
Degrees in hand, he returned to The Free Press.
A reporter with a master's degree was "unusual" in the 1950s, said Norm IBSEN, a colleague who made his mark as an Ontario legislature reporter and editorial page editor.
Newspapers were then full of people who worked their way up from the bottom, IBSEN said.
BRIGLIA differed from the old school as an opera lover, said IBSEN, adding he was also an avid baseball fan.
Ivor WILLIAMS, managing editor before BRIGLIA, remembered him as "a gentleman. He carried himself with a lot of dignity. Everybody liked him."
At the peak of his career, BRIGLIA served on the Ontario Press Council for seven years, was vice-president of the Canadian managing editors association and chair of the editorial division of the Canadian Daily Newspapers Association.
He was also The Free Press's ombudsman from 1985 to 1991, appointed to represent the concerns of readers.
Gord SANDERSON, who succeeded BRIGLIA as reader's advocate, said "I respected his love of the business and dedication to high standards of journalism that he displayed as ombudsman."
BRIGLIA believed editors should be held accountable for what's published in the newspaper and he frequently sided with readers' complaints.
"He was a fair, thoughtful fellow," said SANDERSON.
BRIGLIA and his wife, Mary, were parents to five children -- all of them adopted, his son John BRIGLIA said.
"Mom and dad were devoted parents," he said. "We certainly had a sense of family."
John Sr. was "an elegant, loving, caring, humble man," he said.
"He loved opera, music and baseball, especially the New York Yankees."
Although he suffered with Parkinson's for the last five years of his life, he never lost his sense of humour, said John.
"He had a strong faith. He didn't talk about it much, but it was a source of strength and comfort to him."
Friends of BRIGLIA will be received by his family at the Millard George Funeral Home on Ridout Street in London from 2 to 4 p.m. on Friday.
A funeral mass is scheduled for 10 a.m. Saturday at Saint Martin of Tours Catholic Church at Cathcart Street and Duchess Avenue.

Gator kills elderly London woman
By Randy RICHMOND, Sun Media, Sat., October 13, 2007
An elderly London woman dragged to her death by a 2.4-metre alligator at a resort community in Georgia was "a lovely lady," a longtime neighbour here said yesterday.
The body of Gwen WILLIAMS, 83, was found in a lagoon on Skidaway Island, 19 kilometres southeast of Savannah, a week ago.
"She was a lovely lady," said Heather STANTON, who grew up across the road from WILLIAMS in London. "It is an unfortunate accident."
Another neighbour, Glen Cornish, said WILLIAMS's family is "doing fine."
He declined to say more, adding WILLIAMS's children did not want to comment.
WILLIAMS lived on her own, a friend said.
Georgia police would only say this week that WILLIAMS was originally from Wales and lived in Canada about 55 years.
WILLIAMS was housesitting for relatives at The Landings, an exclusive gated resort community on Skidaway Island.
WILLIAMS was last seen a week ago Friday in the afternoon.
Police learned later residents had heard someone shouting for help but couldn't find the source, Savannah news media reported.
About noon Saturday, a couple walking a resort golf course found her body -- missing its left arm, right hand and right foot -- in a lagoon about 150 metres from the house, Savannah police said.
Police searched the home and area for evidence of foul play, but found only that WILLIAMS's patio screen door was unlocked.
An autopsy Tuesday revealed wounds consistent with an alligator attack and ruled WILLIAMS bled to death.
A trapper for the Georgia Department of Natural Resources found and shot the alligator Tuesday night, in a lagoon about 30 metres from where WILLIAMS 's body was found.
Tests showed the alligator was responsible for WILLIAMS's death.
"This is the first alligator attack fatality since 1980," Jim Simmons, a senior biologist for the department, said in a written statement.
"We are saddened by this tragic loss of life."
There's no evidence WILLIAMS did anything irresponsible, such as feeding the alligator, to provoke the attack, wildlife officials said.
But the death underscores the need for everyone to avoid feeding alligators, because they become habituated to humans and more aggressive, Simmons added.

LISTER, Mary
Sister, friend, vintner. Born November 12, 1929, in Toronto. Died February 9 in Toronto of complications after a fall, aged By Joan WILLIAMS, Page L8
When my sister was born, the doctor predicted she would not last a year because she had cerebral palsy. Stubborn from birth, she proved them wrong.
Mary attended a school for disabled children. When she left she met a wonderful lady who taught her how to weave; it changed Mary's life. She became an exceptionally talented weaver and her fabrics won many prizes at the Canadian National Exhibition.
Mary attended a workshop, now known as Corbrook, where she worked for 56 years. Along with her weaving she did any task she was assigned.
She had excellent hearing, sight and understanding. Her left side was affected by her impairment, but her big problem was an inability to speak. She communicated with notes and gestures, and many people took this as a sign of a lack of intelligence. Yet she immensely enjoyed the theatre, the ballet and music concerts.
As a teenager she swam with the Gus Ryder Lakeshore Swim Club. She took dancing lessons at Arthur Murray Studios, never missing a chance to be out and about. Each summer she spent time at a camp for disabled children in Collingwood.
Her spirit of adventure took her far. Early on, Mary's parents started "tripping" with visits to Canada's east and west coasts, Bermuda and England, Europe and Asia. Mary even kissed the Blarney Stone in Ireland. At 70, she went to India and climbed a mountain at Kathmandu in Nepal. While canoeing with Outward Bound, she spent a night alone in Algonquin Park. On a trip to Asia, Mary visited Kowloon, our mother's birthplace.
She saw the Tattoo in Scotland, cruised the Caribbean Sea and Greek Islands, and sailed Lake Ontario and the North Sea off the Netherlands. Aboard the KLM flight, Mary sat with a Canadian Broadcasting Corporation producer who was filming the trip. The group was in first class and the drinks were flowing freely. When questioned about her drinking Mary replied, "People with cerebral palsy can drink a lot because you can't tell the difference between their sobriety or their inebriation."
Mary had a friend with whom she produced homemade wine. No one turned down a bottle, for it was always very good.
She spent her entire life in the family home, living independently the past 30 years with some community help. She was a common sight in her east-end neighbourhood, shopping or walking to church. She was known to our seven children and 14 grandchildren as "Aunt Mary."
Her many Friends gathered at her memorial service; for this, her last trip, a floral arrangement read: Bon Voyage Mary. We hope her story will inspire others to do things that seem impossible and to make the best of what life hands you.
Joan WILLIAMS is Mary's sister.
