O'BRIEN, Brendan, Q.C., L.S.M.
Peacefully at home in Dundas, Ontario, on July 13, 2007. Lovingly remembered by Beverley, his wife of 44 years, and his children Susie and Duncan, and their families Peter, Bridget, Thomas and Jamie MOUNTFORD, Marita and Josie and Brendan O'BRIEN. Brendan will also be greatly missed by his sister Geraldine (Charles BRADY) and many nieces and nephews. Brendan was pre-deceased by his parents, Florence (MILEY) and Donel, and by siblings Charles, Eileen (PHELAN), Laureen (WEILER), Edward, Miley, Elizabeth (Betty McGOEY,) and George. Brendan was born in 1909 in Toronto, and raised in Dixie, Ontario. He spent 96 of his 98 summers on Lake Joseph, most of those on his beloved Burnt Island. He had a long and distinguished career as a lawyer in Toronto, beginning as a junior with the firm of Phelan and Richardson after being called to the bar in 1932. He eventually became senior partner, before the firm merged with Aylesworth Thompson in 1986. He taught at Osgoode Law School in the 1950s and in the Bar Admission Course until 1959. In 1966 he was elected Treasurer of the Law Society of Upper Canada. During his term he made significant contributions, including outlining a plan which would eventually become the basis for the Law Foundation of Ontario. He remained an active participant of Convocation until the age of 96. In 2005 he received the Law Society Medal for his many contributions to the province's justice system. In 1979 Brendan became the first president of the Osgoode Society. His passionate interest in history inspired his authorship of two books, Speedy Justice (1992), and The Prettiest Spot in Muskoka (1999). A private family funeral will be held on Tuesday July 17, 2007 at Cattel, Eaton and Chambers Funeral Home, 53 Main Street, Dundas. Cremation has taken place. In lieu of flowers, donations to the Victorian Order of Nurses would be appreciated. www.catteleatonandchambers.ca

Shooting suspect found slain hours later
By Matt HARTLEY, Page A12
A man found shot to death in an underground parking garage in the north end of Scarborough Friday evening was responsible for the brazen daylight shooting death of another man just seven hours earlier, according to Toronto police.
It all started at 1: 22 p.m. Friday when 19-year-old Ryan HYDE was ambushed outside a plaza at the corner of Birchmount Road and Bonis Avenue in Scarborough.
Mr. HYDE was waiting inside a black four-door sedan for a friend who had gone into a restaurant to buy some pizza when someone opened the rear door of the car and started shooting.
He was shot several times and died of a wound to the abdomen a short time later in hospital.
Police say the gunman was 25-year-old Kennado WALKER of Ajax - also known as Weezy or Squeeze - who fled the scene with another man.
The pair apparently took off north across Bonis Avenue and disappeared into a townhouse complex.
At 8: 13 p.m., police were called to an underground parking garage at 5600 Sheppard Ave. East - just five kilometres away - where Mr. WALKER's body was discovered, riddled with bullets.
Police said he died as a result of a gunshot wound to the head.
"By all accounts it appears that Mr. WALKER was targeted for this shooting and executed in the garage," Toronto police Detective Stacy GALLANT said. "What we have are two individuals who were leading criminal high-risk lifestyles. They had an apparent dispute that led to both of them being killed on Friday."
Officers said both men were known to police and had a history of involvement with drugs and guns. However, police still have not given a motive for either killing. Det. GALLANT said neither man had an apparent gang affiliation, but that they did know one another.
"We'd like to find out what's happened and why Mr. WALKER would feel compelled to go and kill another man over what's gone on in the past," Det. GALLANT said.
At least nine homicide officers as well as the gun and gang task force are investigating the slayings.
Police have also arrested a 21-year-old man, Adrian McGOWAN, who was found attending to Mr. HYDE at the scene of the first shooting.
He now faces weapons charges.
