TYM, Graeme
Paterfamilias, pioneer, sailor, friend. Born March 8, 1921, in Ashton-under-Lyne, England. Died December 20, 2007, in Oakville, Ontario, of heart failure, aged 86.
By John W. CLARKE Jr., Page L8
Graeme TYM's life was touched by both serendipity and significant challenges.
He began life fortunate his father had a job in local government, which meant the family was relatively financially secure during the 1920s and 1930s.
Graeme's luck changed, however, in 1940 when an incendiary bomb landed in his backyard during the German Blitzkrieg on London. While he was attempting to pour a bucket of sand over it, the bomb exploded, blinding him in one eye at the age of 19.
Graeme's strong personality and determination were forged during his long and painful recovery in hospital. In spite of his disability, he served as an electrician in the Royal Air Force for the rest of the Second World War.
Soon after his recovery, fortune again touched Graeme when he met Ena SMALL at a dance. They married in 1942 and remained devoted to each other for the next 65 years. They had four children: Jane, Geoffrey, Peter and Diane.
After the war, Graeme and Ena decided to move to Canada. Graeme obtained a job at Burlington Steel (later Slater Steel) in Hamilton, where he remained for the next 25 years, retiring as production manager at age 54.
Graeme and Ena made a life that revolved around family and Friends. He always made time to take his family on camping trips and Sunday picnics. He was also an avid sailor and delighted in taking his children, and later the grandchildren, sailing on Lake Ontario and in the Florida Keys.
Graeme possessed a colourful and fascinating personality; he could be strong and opinionated but also shy and reticent. He held opinions that could sometimes appear inflexible and antiquated, but such shortcomings were balanced by an overwhelming generosity and altruism toward Friends and family.
Many years ago, when one of his grand_sons was suffering through a "dark night of the soul," Graeme sent him a card of encouragement and support. When his grand_son opened the card, a small, folded piece of paper fell to the floor. On it was typed Invictus, William Ernest Henley's poem:
It matters not how strait the gate,
How charged with punishments the scroll,
I am the master of my fate
I am the captain of my soul.
During the last year of his life, Graeme suffered a series of small strokes. Until the end, he retained his sharp wit and sense of humour, and bore his failing health with stoicism.
The roles he most cherished, and for which he will be best remembered, were those of husband, father, grandfather, great-grandfather and friend.
John W. CLARKE, Jr. is Graeme's grand_son.

Innocent victim dies from gunshot wounds
By Lisa PRIEST, Page A10
Toronto police are investigating the homicide of a 22-year-old man - in what is believed to be another tragic case of an innocent bystander killed by gunfire.
Shawn McLEAN died in hospital after being shot three days earlier in the neck at the Jane Street and Chalkfarm Drive area.
"Wrong place at the wrong time," Sergeant Norman SMART said yesterday. "It's one of those things, he's just there and there was an altercation and unfortunately he was hit."
Paramedics managed to revive Mr. McLEAN, who was found unconscious with a gunshot wound to the neck Tuesday night. He died on Friday, after being on life support.
Police said Mr. McLEAN, who is the city's fourth homicide, was not affiliated with gangs and had no criminal record.
Security camera footage shows he had been at the North York Sheridan Mall before he was shot on Tuesday; he was last seen walking to his mother's home.
This is the third murder involving guns.
John O'KEEFE was shot in the head January 12 after gunfire broke out on Yonge Street, near the Brass Rail Tavern. Five days later, a stray bullet killed another innocent bystander, Hou Chang MAO, outside a Chinatown market on Gerrard Street East near Broadview Avenue.

Commemorating the tragedy that history forgot
The water was calm when officers set out for a Lake Simcoe patrol on June 7, 1958. But a hellish storm swept through that night, taking five lives in the worst single-incident death toll in Royal Canadian Mounted Police history
By Barry WARD, Special to The Globe and Mail, Page A12
It was the largest single-incident loss of life in the 135-year history of the Royal Canadian Mounted Police, which stretches from the skirmishes of the Northwest Rebellion to the slaying of four officers near Mayerthorpe, Alberta.
But history has largely forgotten five officers who drowned 50 years ago this weekend on a stormy Lake Simcoe night in what should have been a routine patrol of the "dry" Georgina Island Indian Reserve. As with recent Royal Canadian Mounted Police tragedies, the officers were young - four had less than two years of service - and the ensuing controversy reached Parliament Hill. The incident led to changes in Canada's boating regulations.
The Royal Canadian Mounted Police will take a step toward rectifying the oversight with a ceremony at the Newmarket detachment tomorrow. Family members of the dead Mounties are expected to attend, along with the last living member from that ill-fated patrol on June 7, The deaths still haunt Murray SMITH, 69, now retired and living in Victoria Harbour, Ontario In a last-minute decision, Mr. SMITH gave up his seat in the boat to another officer.
"I think about it an awful lot," Mr. SMITH said. "I've had a lot of close calls but never that close. It makes cold chills go up your back."
Two weeks after graduating from training, Mr. SMITH was part of a team patrolling the lake in a 14-foot, cedar-strip boat with a 35-horsepower outboard motor. The officers made several arrests for liquor infractions. After supper, the Mounties decided to make one more run from Paradise Beach, west of Jackson's Point.
"I was in the boat, the motor was started and, for some reason, a member came down to the dock and walked right up to the boat and said, 'Smitty, you've been in the boat all afternoon, how about letting me go?' Well, it didn't matter to me, so I got out and he got in and I pushed the boat off and went back up and sat in the police car all night."
That was about 10: 30 p.m., and the lake was calm. After midnight, "a hell of a storm" swept through the area. Mr. SMITH and another Mountie, Ron McDONALD, began to worry. "We kept saying, 'They'd be on land by now, they should be okay.' But we couldn't understand why they didn't call us on the radio."
Mr. SMITH and Mr. McDONALD went to a nearby marina for help. A search party headed out at first light, quickly finding the boat, submerged except for its bow, running lights still on. They also discovered the body of Corporal Herbert SMART, 33, of Toronto, the officer in charge. It was apparent he had been trying to get into a life jacket.
Constables Glen FAROUGH, 22, of Stockton, Manitoba, Maurice MELNYCHUK, 21, of Prince George, British Columbia, David PERRY, 19, of North Burnaby, British Columbia and George RANSOM, 21, of Melville, Saskatchewan., were missing. All were good swimmers, but little hope was given for their survival. None was wearing a life jacket and the water temperature was determined to be 11 degrees on the surface and much colder a few feet down.
After the accident, justice minister Davie FULTON defended the Royal Canadian Mounted Police in the House of Commons, saying all rules were followed, the boat had the necessary equipment and was not overloaded. However, a few days later it was brought to his attention that the maximum load for 14-foot boats was 740 pounds, and the five officers weighed a total of 860 pounds.
Within two weeks, before the lake had given up another body (all eventually were found), an inquest was under way at the town hall in Pefferlaw, Ontario, newly painted for the occasion. It included a re-enactment of the patrol with five similar-sized men in the recovered boat. When the men jumped into the water, none of them could use the standard life jackets and cushions. The five-member jury concluded that the boat was likely swamped by 1.4-metre waves, perhaps when one of the fuel tanks ran dry. The jury also found the boat was overcrowded and overloaded, the standard life jackets and cushions were unsatisfactory in emergencies and the metal plaque listing the boat's capacity at 950 pounds was ambiguous.
Royal Canadian Mounted Police officials testified they believed the weight to exclude the boat's motor, which weighed 129 pounds. Officials from the government, boat manufacturers and boating groups said the motor was included, although they agreed the wording was subject to different interpretations. The five Royal Canadian Mounted Police officers also had about 100 pounds of equipment on board.
By the last day of June, Mr. FULTON had told the Commons he would implement the jury's recommendations, including new rules to clarify capacity. On July 1, the Transport Department announced new wording for load-warning plaques, making it clear the specified weight limit included everything in the boat, including motor, gear and people.
The Royal Canadian Mounted Police announced it would set up a board to examine the risks of water patrols. A week later, the last body, that of Constable RANSOM, washed up on shore.
A memorial service was held on Georgina Island that September. The incident then disappeared into history. Corporal Marc LaPorte, an Royal Canadian Mounted Police media relations officer, said the initiative to mark the 50th anniversary came from the force retirees association.
"Why it took 50 years, I'm not sure," Cpl. LaPorte said. "Most people are unaware of it."
The event will begin at 11 a.m., when a plaque will be unveiled. Mr. SMITH will be there, reading Psalm 46, which refers to troubled water. He is glad the deaths are finally receiving some recognition.
"We lost four members in Mayerthorpe, Alberta., and the media picked up that that was the worst tragedy that had ever happened," Mr. SMITH said.
"Although the four members were shot, I can't think of a more tragic death than drowning in ice-cold water in the middle of the night."
Mr. SMITH spent 32 years in the Royal Canadian Mounted Police, retiring as a staff sergeant from the Hamilton detachment. He has a son and daughter who are police officers.
In a final twist, Mr. SMITH ended up being posted to Orillia to replace one of the dead officers, where one of his duties was patrolling Lake Simcoe. "I used that boat for the next two years," he said.
