Friends, family and football community mourn loss of Sandy Ruckstuhl - www.ottawacommunitynews.com/Tuesday, January 24, 2017
For Sandy Ruckstuhl, football was about the people — players and staff — above most anything else.
That’s the popular opinion among those who worked with Ruckstuhl through the Nepean-based Myers Riders Football Club.
For many, knowing the club’s former president professionally wasn’t much different than knowing him personally. On the field, in the office or on the phone, it’s the same story.
“Sandy was the kind of guy you could call if you were having a problem and needed to talk about it with someone,” said Scott Boxall, the club’s current president.
“Even if it wasn’t related to football, he would sit there and talk to you about it.”
Ruckstuhl died in hospital on Jan. 7. He was 72. Days earlier, he had stepped down as the club’s president after 37 years, nominating Boxall as his replacement and pledging to stay involved with the club as an adviser. Boxall started playing with the club when he was 15 and said he’d known Ruckstuhl for 32 years.
“I feel honoured that he chose me to take over as president,” Boxall said, adding that the club’s executive followed Ruckstuhl’s lead and voted Boxall in.
“That was one of those great honours.”
But when the unexpected...
Mother able to leave hospital to attend two daughters' funeral | CTV ... - CTV NewsTuesday, December 27, 2016
Station Road on December 9th. Their mother, Bernadette Muzaliwa, was airlifted to hospital with life-threatening injuries.
Elizabeth’s and Rahema’s funeral was held at the Bibleway Ministries in Nepean Saturday.
It was standing room only as more than 300 people came to say good-bye to the two sisters.
Among them, was the girls’ mother Bernadette who has been unable to leave hospital since the crash. With help of a wheelchair and a body brace, Bernadette joined her husband Kayamba Muzaliwa, and their son David to attend the funeral.
“I’m doing very well by God’s grace. I’m standing here surrounded by God,” Bernadette says. She wants people to “remember they are smart girls, intelligent, and friendly with everybody. Kayamba called his wife’s strength, “a testimony to God.”
The funeral included traditional Congolese song and dance. Kayamba Muzaliwa delivered the eulogy. He says he wanted the funeral to take place at Bibleway Ministries, where the family attended since they arrived to Canada from the Congo. “They were born in this church, baptised in this church, and served in this church,” he says. “I hoped that their bodies would be brought here for the last time for them to say goodbye to their home, because this is their home.”
A Go Fund Me campaign has been set up to help support the family as they deal with their grief.

Clark Davey, 1928-2019: 'The true journalist of journalists' - Ottawa CitizenWednesday, March 27, 2019
He was heartbroken after failing his medical, but an English teacher told him that people would pay him to write. So he enrolled in the first journalism degree course taught at University of Western Ontario, graduating in 1948 and joining the newsroom of the Chatham Daily News.There, he worked under Richard "Dic" Doyle, but moved to Kirkland Lake when the Thomson newspaper chain made him editor-in-chief of the Northern Daily News. His time there was brief, however, as his girlfriend, Joyce Gordon, issued him an ultimatum: Northern Ontario or me. He chose her: they married in September 1952.In the meantime, he joined the newsroom of the Globe and Mail, where his mentor Doyle had been working for a year.As a reporter with the Globe, Davey covered national and international affairs, including the Suez Canal crisis, the St. Lawrence Seaway project and the cancellation of the Avro Arrow program. During the 1957 federal election campaign, he recognized that Tory leader John Diefenbaker was gaining momentum and might actually win, and convinced his editors to allow him to stay with the Chief's campaign for 40 days.

When Doyle became editor of the Globe in 1963, he chose Davey as his managing editor, and, according to Mills, the two raised the broadsheet's reputation from that of a local paper to a national one. Davey was managing editor for 15 years before joining the Vancouver Sun in 1978. He was publisher there until 1983, when he took over at the Gazette. He was publisher of the Citizen from 1989 to 1993. He was also president and chair of The Canadian Press, and co-founder and president of the Michener Awards Foundation that oversees the country's most prestigious journalism prize."He was the true journalist of journalists," says Kim Kierans, journalism professor at University of King's College in Halifax and Michener Foundation board member. "He told me when I last saw him in November, ‘If we're not providing the encouragement for journalism organizations and journalists within them to do the journalism that matters, then we're in trouble as a democracy.'"He was also a lovely man, smart and sparkling … with incredible enthusiasm for the business and its future."According to Mills, Davey, who in 2002 led a protest on the steps of the Ottawa Citizen after Mills was fired for running an editorial critical of then-prime minister Jean Chrétien, was known as tough and gruff, "but deep down he was a really kind and thoughtful person, and a very good friend who was always fair to people. But if you didn't know him, he could be intimidating."And although he called the shots on the job, it was Joyce who ruled the home roost. According to son Ric, his father only stopped the presses twice - once while at the Globe, when Joyce called him to report that she and Ric thought they had just seen a UFO."That was the kind of pull she had over him," says Ric.Clark Davey is survived by his wife, Joyce; brother Kenneth George; children Ric (Rita Celli), Kevin (Margaret) and Clark Jr. (...
