Alleged victims at Ontario nursing home all thought to have died of natural causes - The Globe and Mail

Thursday, November 17, 2016

He was a tinkerer of all things,” said his long-time friend Sam Lamb. “He would fix anything.”Mr. Lamb often visited Mr. Granat in his small shop in Tillsonburg, a half-hour drive south of Woodstock, where he would work on his projects while smoking cigarettes he had rolled himself.“He was a real nice, happy-go-lucky guy, very easy to get along with,” said Mr. Lamb, a retired foreman and truck driver.Mr. Granat lived by himself in a flat close to his shop. When he lost the apartment, he took to sleeping on a cot in the shop, Mr. Lamb recalled.“He never had any money, he never had anything. I used to help him out a little bit,” he said.One of Mr. Granat’s granddaughters, who did not want to be named, said she was angry to learn that his death was an alleged murder. “He was a good person. Every time with him was special.”The next alleged slaying took place four years later, when Gladys Millard, 87, died on Oct. 14, 2011.She was a long-time member of Knox Presbyterian Church in Woodstock as well as other community groups.Born in Nova Scotia, she was the mother of two and her husband had passed away 14 years before her.About two weeks after Ms. Millard’s death, 95-year-old former schoolteacher Helen Matheson died on Oct. 27, 2011.A widow, Ms. Matheson lived on her own with help from her son until she became frail and began getting confused and moved to the Caressant home.She had been a lifelong member of the United Church in her village of Innerkip, about a 15-minute drive from Woodstock. She served on several committees and was a driving force of the women’s group, helping with fundraisers and serving lunches at funerals.“She was kind and gentle, petite, well-respected, a long-time presence in the village,” said Rev. Maya Landell, minister of the Innerkip United Church.Days later, there was another death. Mary Zurawinski was the oldest victim. She was 96 when she died at the Caressant home in Woodstock on Monday, Nov. 7, 2011.According to the charge sheet filed at the local courthouse, Ms. Wettlaufer is alleged to have administered the drug that killed Ms. Zurawinski some time between Sunday and Monday.The next alleged victim was 90-year-old Helen Young, who died on Sunday, July 14, 2013.Born in Edinburgh, she had served in the Royal Air Force during the Second World War. It was in London that she met a Canadian soldier, Peter (Sandy) Young.They married and moved to Calgary before settling in Woodstock. In the funeral notice, her niece, Sharon, described her as a “true sturdy Scottish lass, who did not hesitate to speak her mind on any and all subjects.”As for Ms. Pickering, the notice thanked “the caring and patient staff of Caressant.”Ms. Pickering died the year after Ms. Young.“She was a really warm, loving person, a really wonderful woman. It’s troubling that someone did this to her,” said a family friend who did not want to be named.The friend said Ms. Pickering had taken care of her ailing husband, Hubert, a former Bell Canada manager. They travelled despite his Parkinson’s. “She tried to make his life as fulfilling as possible.”The youngest victim was 75-year-old Arpad Horvath, who died Aug. 31, 2014, in London.Mr. Horvath, who once ran a tool and die company in London, was a big trophy hunter.Taxidermist Laurier Houle said Mr. Horvath had a room full of stuffed animals that he had shot during his travels around the world. Mr. Horvath and his late brother Frank came to Canada after the Hungarian revolutio...

Appeal ends, nearly $6000 raised - Sault Star

Thursday, April 12, 2018

Hunter Chamberlain and their son, Bentley, died last Tuesday. Their SUV, northbound on Highway 69 near Parry Sound, crossed the centre line and collided with a transport. The SUV caught fire. Ontario Provincial Police have not released the names of the deceased pending identification by Ontario Centre of Forensic Sciences. Whitehead's best friend, Rebecca Chapman, launched a GoFundMe appeal (https://www.gofundme.com/help-support-jodey-whitehead) on Friday to help Victoria's mother, Jodey Whitehead, pay for funeral costs. Her goal was $2,000. That target was exceeded by more than 50 per cent within 24 hours with $3,186 donated by 66 contributors by 10 a.m Saturday. By Sunday afternoon, the tally grew to $5,980 from 136 donors. In an update, Chapman thanked donors and said the appeal was finished. “As per request by the family, I will be closing donations and taking the funds to them,” she said. “They decided that this is an overwhelming, but very appreciated amount of support, and that they would like me to close the fund as we have reached nearly $6,000.”Many donors offered their condolences about the trio's death. “My heart goes out to anyone impacted by this tragedy,” said Danielle Heatley. “I can't imagine the pain of losing a child and grandchild,” said MaryClaire Wood in a post. “I pray you find the strength to deal with this terrible loss.“Thanks to everyone for their generosity,” said Jonathan White...

Brockville area joins in mourning - Brockville Recorder and Times

Thursday, April 12, 2018

Humboldt later this week. https://t.co/DvpAsm2Ybw#HumboldtStrong#PutYourStickOut#XBRpic.twitter.com/h2EyHhQjrj — City of Brockville (@BrockvilleON) April 9, 2018Organizations across Ontario were paying tribute to the victims of last week’s fatal bus crash.The bus carrying the junior hockey team to a playoff game collided with a semi truck in northeast Saskatchewan on Friday, killing 15 people and leaving 14 others injured.The fatalities included 10 young teammates, ranging in age from 15 to 21, and five team personnel. Like many people across the country, the Wilsons placed a hockey stick on their porch in what has become a universal tribute to the lost players.The book of condolences is the product of city staff’s collaboration with Brockville’s Irvine Funeral Home.The tragedy also hit close to home for Mike Galbraith, a funeral director at Irvine who helped coordinate the book of condolences.“As a hockey dad, as a parent, as a funeral director, I can appreciate the chaos that’s going on,” he said.“Sometimes, people need an outlet.”Signing a book of condolences is a small way of confronting the powerlessness one feels in the wake of such a tragedy, said Galbraith.“This one’s kind of near and dear to the heart,” he added.“If I had the means and the time, I would fly out there today on a plane and help them out.”The Brockville Braves plan on contributing one dollar from every ticket sold to Tuesday’s Game at the Memorial Centre to a crowdsourcing fund for the victims. Galbraith said another version of the book of condolences will be set up at the arena ahead of that game.“It will all be added to one and sent off at the end of the week,” he added.Some 30 people had signed the city hall book as of mid-afternoon Monday, as word of the tribute began slowly to spread.Some of the people signing came from out of town, including Prescott, Mallorytown, Delta and Kingston.All of the local signatures and messages will be conveyed to Humboldt city hall.Elsewhere locally, organizers of the Brockville Winter Classic Weekend used their Facebook account to post tributes to the Broncos and a link to the crowdsourcing page.Brockville Mayor David Henderson said the scope of the tragedy extends beyond the world of hockey.“I think it wa...

'They lost their goalie': Don Mills Flyers pay tribute to murder victim Roy Pejcinovski in emotional return to the ice - Toronto Star

Thursday, April 12, 2018

Flyers and Marlboros.  (Vince Talotta / Toronto Star)Pejcinovski was a promising prospect in next year’s Ontario Hockey League draft. “We remember him as a teammate and friend,” West said, urging the boys to “sit together, support each other, and keep playing the game.” And they did, but with a twist. The two teams tossed their sticks into pile at centre ice — with no discernible divide between Flyers and Marlboros. Players picked sticks at random, shuffling them like a deck of cards into two new teams.They then peeled their rival jerseys and put on new ones, black or white with a capital “R,” for Roy, in burgundy. The colour in the boys’ socks — orange and black for the Flye...
