Andy served in the artillery and was commissioned from WO1 while overseas during World War 2. Returning to the United Kingdom Andy reclassified to Infantry due to Officers being in demand, proceeding to Italy where he joined the Seaforth Highlanders of Canada, and stayed with them until a year after the War ended. Remaining in the Netherlands after the conclusion of the conflict, his gregarious personality fostered Friendships that have weathered the decades. After the War he married SSgt.

As an original 2 Princess Patricia's Canadian Light Infantry officer he took the advance party over to Korea. Andy had a successful career in sales and marketing that took the family to Ontario in the 60's. In his spare time he taxied boys to soccer pitches, untangled fishing tackle, golfed, curled and mentored his five boys. Tired of the snow, when he retired he returned to his roots in British Columbia. He married Doris DENNISON on April 17th 1993 and they were blessed with many happy years of love and companionship. At Andy's request there will be no funeral service. A family service of remembrance will be held in Toronto at the Cathedral Church of Saint_James (St. George's Chapel) on Friday, February 22, 2008 at 5: 30 p.m. A celebration of Andy's life will be held in Vancouver at 5455 Balsam St. in Kerrisdale, on Saturday, March 1, 2008 at 3: 00 p.m. In lieu of flowers donations in Andy's honour may be made to a charity of your choice.

Three die in weekend shootings
By Unnati GANDHI, Page A12
Three men are dead after three separate shootings over the long weekend, police say.
In the first incident, Toronto police responded to reports of a robbery at a grocery store on Yonge Street, near the Davisville subway station, on Saturday evening.
Shortly before 8: 30 p.m., they located a 28-year-old man, who witnesses: allege had been drinking and brandishing a knife, in nearby Oriole Park.
An altercation with police ended with the man being shot, the Special Investigations Unit said.
The provincial agency probes cases of serious injuries and death during dealings with police.
The man, whose identity has not been released, was taken to Saint Michael's Hospital in critical condition and was later pronounced dead.
A postmortem examination was scheduled for yesterday, but no details were released.
Two officers were injured in the confrontation, but they were able to drive themselves to hospital. Police last night would not comment on either the officers' conditions or the shooting, citing the Special Investigations Unit probe.
In the second incident, a man was shot and killed at an all-night house party in Scarborough early Sunday morning.
Police had cordoned off Dunsfold Drive, near Neilson Road and Finch Avenue, for much of the day after neighbours reported hearing several gunshots around 6: 15 a.m.
A 23-year-old man's body was found in the snow between two houses. A postmortem determined Tristan WRIGHT of Toronto died of multiple gunshot wounds to the head.
Detective Terry BROWNE, who is leading the investigation, said last night he believes that Mr. WRIGHT never made it inside the house where the party, attended by a much older crowd, was being held.
Homicide investigators last night continued their search for a small, white, four-door car seen leaving the area at the time of the shooting. There may have been three or four people in it, and police want to speak to them. Police do not know if they were simply attending the party and left, or if they were involved in the shooting.
Meanwhile, Peel police were investigating the region's fourth homicide of the year after a Malton man was shot outside a nightclub early yesterday.
Police were called to Trilogy Night Club, on Kennedy Road South in Brampton, for a shooting just after 2: 20 a.m. They found the 26-year-old man suffering from life-threatening injuries in the parking lot.
Andre Alexander HARRISINGH died in hospital. A postmortem is scheduled for today.
Investigators are appealing to any witnesses: who may have seen a small white vehicle leaving the club at the same time as a green sport utility vehicle that night.

ZIMMERMAN, William " Bill" Martin
Born 1930 in Winnipeg, died in Vancouver March 29th, 2008. A graduate of Kelvin High School and the University of Manitoba (M.S.W./56), Bill was an athlete, an actor (MTC; U of M) and a social worker in Winnipeg and Ottawa. As a probation officer at Winnipeg's Juvenile Court, Bill found delinquent youth were the invariable result of families lacking access to services he thought communities should provide. When he moved to Ottawa with his own family, he joined the city's Social Planning Council to help address those needs. He soon discovered that stronger financial support was required by Ottawa-Hull United Way agencies. As director of the United Way for 13 years, he believed strongly that its funds should be determined by the communities' needs rather than by donors' choice. Privately, as a jazz fan and a sports enthusiast, he was expert in the arcana of both. In his retirement in Sechelt, British Columbia, Bill found a fellow sports buff in Gilbert Joe, an elder with the Sechelt Indian Band, whose memory he chose to honour by assembling a unique collection of photos of aboriginal athletes, now a permanent exhibition at the town's Kinnikinnick Elementary School. Bill's positive personality, which found humour even in dialysis units and hospital wards, sustained him to the end. Bill is survived by his wife Sheila, and their children Kate, John and Frances, sons-in-law Ron SHEWCHUK and Peter FINDLAY, and four grandchildren, Zoe and Jake SHEWCHUK, Audrey and Georgia FINDLAY, as well as his sister Betty ZIMMERMAN. He was predeceased by his brother, Jack. Among those who will miss him are his sisters-in-law, Elspeth NICKERSON, Catherine MONTROSE, Ann YOUNG, Hellie WILSON and Florence BROWNRIDGE. A memorial for Bill is planned for this July. Condolences to the family may be sent to billzimm2008@gmail.com
