Windsor Spitfires captain RENAUD dies
Calgary Flames' draft choice was 19
By Allan MAKI, Page S1
Family Day was supposed to be fun and relaxing for the Windsor Spitfires. Instead of practising, the players were scheduled to appear at the Windsor Arena throughout the afternoon and skate leisurely with Friends and fans of the Ontario Hockey League team.
Spitfires captain Mickey RENAUD, 19, had decided to have a few teammates over to his family home in Tecumseh, Ontario, for breakfast before heading to the arena known affectionately as the Barn.
But in the midst of an enjoyable morning, something went horribly wrong. RENAUD began convulsing, then passed out. An ambulance was called while efforts were made to revive the stricken teen.
By the time he was taken to the Windsor Regional Hospital, it was too late. The 6-foot-3, 220-pound centre was gone and a family, a team and corners of the hockey world were thrust into mourning.
"We're in a state of shock," said Tom WEBSTER, a family friend who twice coached the Spitfires and was responsible for getting the National Hockey League's Calgary Flames to draft RENAUD in the fifth round in 2007. "I don't know how to describe it. Just seeing the guys at the rink, the staff, everyone in the organization, it's really difficult to deal with. I feel just like I lost a son."
Spitfires team physician Roy DIKLICH outlined yesterday's medical efforts in a statement that said RENAUD was "absent of vital signs" when the player reached hospital. "All attempts were made at resuscitations and were unsuccessful at the emergency room."
According to a family contact, an autopsy was planned for last night to try to learn what happened to the seemingly healthy young man renowned for his character as much as his ability to play hockey.
RENAUD was in his third season with the Spitfires and beginning to assert himself as a leader. It was that trait that had the Flames looking fondly to the future.
"He was a guy who gave you a little of everything - penalty killing, he could play on the power play, he could hit," Flames scout Todd Button said. "The thing that struck me was his leadership, especially with a young team. He got the job done."
Moe MANTHA, who signed RENAUD to play for the Spitfires, recalled RENAUD's smarts, how good he was with and without the puck. MANTHA said he could tell RENAUD came from a hockey family.
"He was a very good athlete in very good shape and we were looking for that to help turn things around," MANTHA said. "I met with his mom and dad before training camp. The apple didn't fall far from the tree. They're a first-class, genuine family. I feel so badly for them."
Mark RENAUD played 152 games in the National Hockey League, most of them with the Hartford Whalers, as a solid defenceman. Mark's brother, Chris, played in the American Hockey League and was coached by Webster.
"I can't say enough good things about this young man," Webster said of Mickey. "I compare him to Adam Graves. In '88, we went to the Memorial Cup with Adam. Mickey could have been that way next year or maybe this year. He always came to the rink with a smile on his face."
RENAUD's death was felt in Uniondale, where New York Islanders head coach Ted Nolan, whose son, Jordan, plays for the Spitfires, wasn't behind the bench for the first period when his team played the San Jose Sharks. Nolan needed time to talk to his son and compose himself.
"He was my son's teammate and good friend, and it was tragic," Nolan said. "Sometimes there are a lot more important things than a hockey game."
The Spitfires are supposed to play host to the Plymouth Whalers on Thursday. There was no news yesterday whether the game will be played and when a memorial service for RENAUD will be held.
"I'd like to go pay my respects," said former teammate Mitch MAUNU, who now plays for Lakehead University. "To hear about him passing, it's heartbreaking. He was such a great guy, so full of life and energy. He had so much in front of him.
"It's incomprehensible [that he's gone], that's the best word to describe it."
RENAUD had attended the Flames' training camp last September and had scored 21 goals and 20 assists in 56 games this Ontario Hockey League season. He was in the lineup on Sunday when Windsor defeated Owen Sound 4-1.

RENAUD is a local hero
By Allan MAKI, Page S3
Mickey RENAUD touched the hearts of many people in his short life, none more so than Akim ALIU.
The two were Ontario Hockey League rookies with the Windsor Spitfires in 2005 when ALIU was attacked in practice by teammate Steve DOWNIE, who cross-checked ALIU in the mouth and knocked out three teeth.
Though just 16, RENAUD reached out to ALIU, who was shunned by several Spitfires to the point where he eventually had to be traded. Little wonder news of RENAUD's sudden death on Monday shook ALIU, who now plays for the London Knights.
"He was unbelievable to me," ALIU said. "I had all my pregame meals at his house. I knew his family, his brother and sister. He helped me so much. It's such a tragic thing."
ALIU described RENAUD as "one of the nicest kids I know" and recalled how the two would talk to one another even during games.
"We talked about how we were doing, if we were playing well, that kind of stuff," said ALIU, who also chatted with RENAUD during last year's National Hockey League draft when ALIU was selected by the Chicago Blackhawks and RENAUD by the Calgary Flames.
An autopsy was conducted yesterday on the 6-foot-3, 220-pound Spitfires captain, who collapsed at his home and died en route to the Windsor Regional Hospital. The preliminary results were passed along to the RENAUD family, but medical officials said they may need months to determine the cause of death.
The Spitfires announced they were cancelling tomorrow night's home game against the Plymouth Whalers and that RENAUD's funeral service is scheduled for Friday at Saint Anne's Church in Tecumseh near Windsor, Ontario
Windsor head coach Bob BOUGHNER, a former Flames defenceman, said the players have been spending time together and with members of the local victim services.
"We spent a night at a billet's home with a dinner," BOUGHNER said. "We had a chapel service at the local high school. The kids have spent every moment together. They're going to dedicate the season to Mickey RENAUD."
While BOUGHNER was not with the Spitfires during the nasty DOWNIE / ALIU clash, he was aware of how RENAUD did all he could to pull together a fractured team.
"There were a lot of issues," BOUGHNER said. "Mickey was one of the players instrumental in befriending Akim and settling the whole thing. He was a guy who was always in the coaches' room, never about himself, always about a teammate. He made sure everyone was taken care of. He was a local hero."
The Spitfires will not appoint a captain to replace RENAUD. Every player in the league will wear a commemorative 18 sticker (RENAUD's number) on his helmet.

O'BRIAN, Edith Jean (née BEATTY)
(October 5, 1919-July 1st, 2008)
In Toronto at the Salvation Army Meighen Manor Alzheimer and Dementia wing, in her 89th year. Edie was pre-deceased last year by her beloved husband of 65 years, Peter, and previously by her twin brother Richard BEATTY, her sisters Ottilie BEATTY and Graeme RENGERS, and her lifelong Friends Marcia WOOD and Joy MacDONALD. She is dearly missed by her sister Barbara SPEARS, her sons John St. George O'BRIAN (Helen) and Peter Beatty O'BRIAN (Carolyn BENNETT,) her grandchildren Melanie, Amy, Meghan, Jack and Ben (all O'BRIAN) who knew and loved her as 'Dede', her nephew Douglas SPEARS, and her nieces Jean PODOLSKY (George,) Buffy ASH (Bill,) and Kit RENGERS. She is also remembered with love by her brothers-in-law, James O'BRIAN (Anne) and Liam O'BRIAN (Barbara). Edie grew up in Toronto on Cottingham Street and Ava Crescent, the third daughter of lawyer Percy BEATTY (Fraser and Beatty) and Marjorie. She attended Bishop Stachan School and Hatfield Hall and spent summers at Nares Inlet, Georgian Bay, where she first met Peter in 1936. During World War 2, she sailed to England to join 'Pete', who was serving overseas in the Royal Air Force, and they were married in London at Saint Martin-in-the-Fields in December, 1941, returning to Toronto in 1959.

She delighted in her family life, her dogs, Chelsea, Hollywood and Marley, long country walks and blueberry picking by canoe in the Georgian Bay. She was fiercely loyal and supportive to those she loved, and always sided with the 'underdog'. Edie's family is deeply grateful to the Meighen Manor for the loving care provided by its dedicated staff.

They want to 'win for her'
The midget girls squad, which lost a coach in a car crash, wants to play in the championship.
By Patrick MALONEY, Sun Media, Wed., April 2, 2008
The death of an Oxford County hockey coach has stunned her players, but it's unlikely to stop them.
Members of the Embro Edge midget girls squad, reeling from the death of assistant coach Carolyn PIETT, 23, in a crash Monday, were to decide last night whether they would play in this weekend's league championship in Vaughan.
"The girls want to go and win for her," said Michelle CRANDALL, who has a daughter on the team and two other children who grew up with PIETT.
"They said Carolyn would want them to play."
PIETT, of Embro, was killed on her way to work at Autodata Solutions in London when her car collided with a transport truck north of Thamesford at 8 a.m. Monday. The truck driver, Lloyd DEVEAU of Midland, wasn't hurt.
Several Friends yesterday remembered PIETT, who coached the team with her father, Ron, as a fun-loving person who was always happy.
"Always had a smile on her face," said teammate Leanne RENKEMA, 18. "She could be angry and she would have a smile on her face."
The loss has been tough for the small community where PIETT grew up with three sisters. CRANDALL knew the athletic, outgoing woman since PIETT was in kindergarten.
"You knew if she was in the room -- she was just that type," CRANDALL said last night.
PIETT's car was crushed by the transport truck at Oxford County Road 119 and Zorra Road 74, an intersection controlled by stop signs for east-west traffic.
The car was hit on the passenger side and pushed into the west ditch south of the intersection. Police closed the roads for about five hours while wreckage was cleared.
Although it was raining at the time of the collision, weather isn't believed to be a factor, police said.
Visitation is slated for tomorrow from 2 p.m. to 4 p.m. and 7 p.m. to 9 p.m. at Longworth Funeral Home in Woodstock. A funeral will be held at 11 a.m. Friday at Knox United Church in Embro.

TAILOR/TAYLOR, Thomas Laurence
Father, gramps, Dieppe survivor, PoW, humanitarian. Born March 3, 1914, in Calgary. Died June 22 in Ottawa of pneumonia, aged 93.
By Joanne OSBORNE, Virginia TAILOR/TAYLOR, Tom TAILOR/TAYLOR and Joann MAPLESDEN, Page L8
Tommy was a gentleman - he looked just as distinguished in a business suit as he did in overalls sitting on a tractor at his Beaver Valley, Ontario, farm.
Tommy was the second son of Edmund and Edna TAILOR/TAYLOR. At 12, he went to Trinity College School in Port Hope, Ontario In 1929 his father died suddenly; Tommy continued his education with support from the school and the parents of his roommates.
A natural athlete and leader, he captained hockey, football and cricket teams. He later became one of the school's life governors and was the first president of the alumni association he helped establish.
In May, 1933, Tommy began working for Manufacturers Life Insurance Co., calculating mortgages by hand. In 1940 he joined The Royal Regiment of Canada, and in 1942 was shipped to England as a lieutenant with the Second Division to begin training for Operation Jubilee - the Dieppe raid.
On August 19, Tommy led his men across the stony beach. Of the 35 men, he was the only one to survive the horrific climb to the top. He took shrapnel in his leg, and, out of ammunition, he and a group of artillery men took cover until nightfall and eventual capture. Tommy endured three years at Oflag VIIB, a PoW officers camp in Bavaria.
Back in Toronto, Tommy rejoined Manulife. He married Mary Helen RENNIE and had three children, Joanne, Virginia and Tom. Tommy was instrumental in expanding Manulife's real-estate portfolio throughout North America and England. He retired from the company after 42 years but remained active in the investment field with McLeod Young Weir Ltd.
The war years had a marked effect on Tommy; he worked through his demons by helping others. His years of compassionate contribution to Renascent House helped others who fought alcoholism.
Tommy always had a cheerful greeting for everyone. His later years were spent in his "beloved Beaver Valley," where he had an active social life and embraced his seven grandchildren. With a twinkle in his eye, he endeared himself to people.
After Helen's death in 2001, Tommy was cared for at the Perley and Rideau Veterans' Health Centre in Ottawa. He passed away peacefully with his children at his side. His ashes will be taken to France by his children and scattered on the beach in remembrance of the fallen war heroes.
Tommy, Gramps, Captain TAILOR/TAYLOR, will forever be our Canadian hero. He was brave, he suffered, he endured, but most of all he loved his family, his Friends, his school and his country.
Joanne OSBORNE, Virginia TAILOR/TAYLOR and Tom TAILOR/TAYLOR are Thomas's children, and Joann MAPLESDEN is his daughter-in-law.

RENNIE, Eleanora " Norah" Stuart (née SIMPSON)
Matriarch, gentle role model, quiet saint. Born around June 3, 1917, in Edinburgh. Died August 14, 2007, in Toronto of cancer, aged 90.
By Adam RENNIE, Page L6
In Edinburgh during the First World War, Marion Scott CUNNINGHAM gave birth to her 11th child. Unlike three brothers before her, the child survived - ach, she must be a strong one.
She was born Eleanora Stuart SIMPSON. By age 6, she and her family moved to Bolton, Ontario
Norah, as she was known, grew up and lived most of her life in Toronto's west end. Her father was a tailor and a strong role model. His views on parenting were clear: "Never hit your kids on the head," he told her, and she never did.
She remembered all the rites of passage: her first kiss ("which was after my first steak on a bun, and even better than the steak") and her first cigarette ("I discovered it was possible to be sneaky, daring, nauseated and have a death wish at the same time."). She married in her early 20s and had four boys - Jim, Rob, Ross, and Dave.
In 1954, hurricane Hazel swept through Toronto. The market gardens where Norah's husband, Andy, worked were flooded, so he was out of a job. She said he was never the same afterward. He and Norah eventually separated because of his increasingly abusive behaviour.
Norah's unplanned independence didn't daunt her; she maintained her calm demeanour. For a long time, she worked as a waitress at Simpsons. When she had too many tables to look after, Norah had a foolproof tactic. As soon as her customers started to look impatient, she would stop by and ask if they had been served yet. "You haven't?" she would say in shock. "Well, your waitress must not be paying attention. I'll just take care of you." They always tipped her a little extra for being so considerate.
Cunning aside, Norah's selflessness knew no bounds. For more than a decade she worked as a nurse's aide at a sanatorium for tuberculosis patients. Her dedication to the community seemed to grow with age - when she wasn't helping at a charity thrift shop, she was volunteering with her church group. When she wasn't knitting socks or a blanket for a new grandchild (hers or a stranger's), she was helping other people in her building with their grocery shopping.
Lying in her hospital bed with terminal cancer, Norah remained her indomitable self. When the doctor delivered the news that she didn't have much longer to live, she took his hand and said, "This must be very hard for you."
Norah compared her life with those of great women and thought it paled in comparison. She saw herself as a tailor's daughter who never had a proper education or career - not as the daring and independent role model that she was.
Adam RENNIE is Norah's grand_son.
