Missing teacher's body identified
Bill YATES had gone missing January 8 from his home that backs onto the Thames River.
By Joe BELANGER, Sun Media, Mon., March 17, 2008
Bill YATES was a teacher of children, a mentor of teachers and a volunteer who cared for strangers.
That's how YATES, 61, was remembered yesterday after London police confirmed it was his body found Saturday in the Thames River near the Richmond Street bridge.
YATES had been missing from his Hamilton Road home, which backs onto the Thames, since January 8, when the river was running fast and high.
"As a teacher, he was a loving and compassionate man, a real pro," said Bruce TRAVNICEK, who taught with YATES at C.C. Carrothers school for three years in the late 1990s and remained Friends after YATES retired.
"He had such a great way of showing us (young teachers) how to show the children we cared."
The cause of his death has not been determined, police said, although a post mortem was to be conducted yesterday.
London police and a firefighter marine unit pulled YATES' body from the river just east of the bridge where Richmond Street turns into Carfrae Crescent about 12: 30 p.m.
Friends searched the area for days after YATES disappeared and even posted a reward.
TRAVNICEK's wife, Wendy, said she's hoping to convert any money collected for the reward fund into a trust for a student bursary in YATES's memory.
YATES taught Wendy TRAVNICEK, 47, when she was a Grade 7 student at Woodland Heights school.
"He was an amazing, wonderful man," she said.
"And he was an amazing teacher. We all knew he cared about us."
Bruce TRAVNICEK said YATES knew which children were having trouble and how to help, even it meant bringing some extra food, handing it to them discreetly.
"If one of his students had trouble, he'd spend hours searching for the right book, going through row after row of books in the library, to find just the right book to help them read," Bruce TRAVNICEK said.
"As a teacher, he would look at the big picture."
YATES, a private man who lived alone, was discovered missing when he failed to show up for his regular shift delivering Meals on Wheels.
YATES was an animal enthusiast and spent a lot of his time training his own dogs and judging at shows.
It was a shared love of dogs and cats that led to a bond between YATES and Arthur SKINNER, 64, a registered practical nurse who met YATES soon after moving to London in the early 1980s.
"Bill was honest, you could trust him and I admired that. He was a kind, gentle spirit. And there was great depth to his mind. He was very intelligent. I'm going to miss him."

BOYD, Richard Norman, M.D., F.R.C.S.
(June 5, 1944-March 29, 2008)
It is with overwhelming grief that the family of Doctor Richard BOYD announces his death at age 63 on Saturday, March 29, 2008 after a heart attack and a stroke. Rick took his last breath held lovingly by his family and close Friends Doctor Frank DEMARCO and Doctor Tom ELSDON. Rick deeply loved, and was loved by, his wife of nearly 40 years, Jane (JOHNSTON,) and cherished his sons David Richard and Andrew Macartney. Rick adored his beautiful 'daughters' Kristen (SKINNER) and Lindsay (GRAY/GREY.) He was predeceased by his loving parents Doctor Norman and Barbara BOYD, and father-in-law Robert 'Mac' JOHNSTON. He will be profoundly missed by his mother-in-law Olive JOHNSTON. Left to mourn are his sisters Judy MANNING, Mary HOPKINS (Ed DAVEY) and Heather MUNRO (Bob,) his aunt Dorothy SEARLE, brother and sister-in-laws Dick and Jane JOHNSTON, cousins, nieces and nephews, and a legion of Friends. He was predeceased by his loyal Bichon Frises, Bijoux and Beaumont. Doctor BOYD graduated from the University Of Western Ontario Medical School in 1968. He obtained his Specialist Fellowship in Urology from the Royal College of Physicians and Surgeons in 1976, and has since then practiced Urological Surgery in Windsor. He previously served as Chief of Surgery, and was currently head of Urology, at the Windsor Regional Hospital. He was one of the founders of the prostate cancer Bracytherapy programme at the Windsor Regional Cancer Centre. In recent years he has also served the community as a Provincial Coroner for Essex County. Rick was a member of the Alpha Kappa Kappa medical fraternity. An athlete, Rick ran 27 marathons around the world with a personal best of 2: 48 in Chicago. He curled in the Ontario Medical Association bonspiels, and was an avid golfer and scholar of golf history. He was a member of the Donald Ross Society. He was currently the very proud President of Essex Golf and Country Club. Rick was a skilled clinician and diagnostician, and a gentle man who exhibited great kindness to his patients. He had twinkling blue eyes, a mischievous smile and a wonderfully wicked sense of humour. Rick's prize orchids are especially beautiful this spring. Our family thanks the medical community, both doctors and nurses, who supported Rick in area hospitals over the years, and especially Ruth Anne PIETTE and Staci LEMIEUX who loyally kept his office organized in spite of him. We thank the doctors and nurses at Windsor Regional and Hotel Dieu Grace Hospitals who so valiantly tried to save him: Doctor Rob WOODALL, Doctor Anthony GLANZ, Doctor Hash PATEL, Doctor Natalie MALUS and Doctor Balraj JHAWAR, who over five difficult days demonstrated extraordinary skill, as well as great compassion and love to our family. Thank you to Carol DERBYSHIRE and Steve BRENNAN from the Hospice of Windsor; Pat BEST, Paula DEEHAN- SCHMIDT and Chaplain Joyce JARDIN from Hotel Dieu Grace Hospital; Kim VAN ALLEN and Bishop Bob BENNETT from All Saints' Church; and our community for enveloping our family in love and prayers as we ran with Rick on his last marathon. Always one to put others first, and ever the healer, Rick has made four gifts of life. His two corneas will go to enhance sight, and, ironically the "perfect urologist kidneys" will give life and hope to two patients. In order to give back to our community which Rick so loved, we ask that in lieu of flowers, donations be made to organizations that were so a part of his life: Hospice of Windsor for care of men with prostate cancer; All Saints' Anglican Church; Windsor Regional Hospital for a Cystoscopy suite; Windsor Regional Cancer Centre for the Prostate Brachytherapy Program; and Essex Golf and Country Club for a croquet pitch and garden in his name. Visiting will be held at the Walter D. Kelly Funeral Home and Cremation Centre, 1969 Wyandotte St. E. On Monday and Tuesday from 1-4 p.m. and 5-8 p.m. The Funeral Service will be held at All Saints' Anglican Church, 330 City Hall Square on Wednesday, April 2, 2008 at 11: 00 a.m. Cremation to follow. Online condolences and audio messages may be left at www.mem.com
