Dr. Lee Luciani, fitness buff and devoted dad, dies suddenly at age 49 - Windsor StarThursday, January 12, 2017
Madeline to soccer.
Luciani, a devoted family man, was on Round 2 this week when he suffered a heart attack and died. He had just turned 49.
Luciani was a partner in walk-in clinics in Essex and Tilbury. On Tuesday, he worked at the Tilbury clinic, picked up his Madeline, and headed to his parents’ home in Tecumseh for dinner before his daughter’s soccer practice.
During dinner, he fell ill. He died soon after.
“There is nothing anyone could have done,” Christine said through tears Thursday. She said the response time from paramedics was quick, but the damage was irreversible.
As a family physician, Luciani would counsel his patients to make good lifestyle choices — eat right, exercise, drink in moderation and don’t smoke.
He walked the talk. He was trim and fit, a runner who would work out at the gym regularly.
Dr. Gary Ing, chief of staff at Windsor Regional Hospital, was in Luciani’s on-call group when Luciani first set up a family practice in Windsor in 2000. He called Luciani a good role model for his patients.
“It’s hard to imagine this happening,” Ing said of Luciani’s unexpected death.
“It’s very scary,” Ing said. “We see it from time to time in young people. You hear about it with athletes. They can have hidden heart problems that don’t declare themselves until it’s a major catastrophe.”
Christine said he...
Belle River crash victim remembered as 'kind and caring guy' - Windsor StarFriday, September 09, 2016
George Willms, a 67-year-old Lakeshore man, also died in a crash on Morris Rd., near Tilbury early Monday morning.
Marchand, known as Mike to his friends, was an employee of 401 Mack for the past three years.
“Mike was always a kind caring kind of guy. His family and friends meant everything to him,” said Colin Geoffroy.
“He never thought twice about helping someone else even if he was busy with his own things,” he added. “Even in school he would go out of his way to help someone in the class that didn’t quite understand what was being taught and teach it to them in a different way.”
Geoffroy said one of his favourite memories of Marchand was when he convinced a bunch of buddies to call in sick and spend the day fishing.

Even though the day didn’t go as planned Geoffroy said it’s a time that still stands out.
“It was one of the best times I ever had with him. To this day I look back on that day and thank him for convincing me to call in that day,” he said.
Danielle Renaud, another close friend, said Marchand was blessed with an infectious smile that could lift up others, even when they faced serious worries.
“He was especially supportive to me during my pregnancy, while my fiance was still in Calgary and I had fears and doubts about becoming a mother for the first time,” she explained. “He was always reassuring and distracted me with some hilarity that came out of his mouth.”
With his ready jokes and willingness to help others, Marchand’s death has left his friends feelin...
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. (...
