Defence wants eight years Bacon’s sentence looms for cocaine conspiracy Vikki HOPES Abbotsford News

BLACK PRESS FILE PHOTO

Jarrod Bacon is pictured during a 2009 appearance in Surrey provincial court. He was found guilty this year of drug conspiracy and will be sentenced Friday in B.C. Supreme Court in Vancouver. after an undercover operation in Abbotsford by the Combined Forces Special Enforcement Unit. Much of the sentencing hearing focused on how much weight Justice Austin Cullen should place on the gravity of the offence. No drugs ever changed hands, and the bulk of the Crown’s case was based on wiretap evidence collected by a police agent, a truck driver who was a friend of Scott’s. The case involved a “reverse sting” in which police created a fake drug-buy situation and

used the agent to negotiate the sale of 100 kg of cocaine. Ray argued that the fact no drugs made it into the community reduced the gravity of the crime and should be considered as a mitigating factor in sentencing. “There was no potential whatsoever of any of these drugs being distributed in the community … What you’re punishing Mr. Bacon for is taking advantage of an opportunity presented to him by police,” he said. LaPrairie said Bacon did not know the plan was made up,

Facing prison in road-rage trial Monique TAMMINGA Black Press

Two years to the day after 21-year-old Silas O’Brien of Abbotsford was killed in a road-rage incident in South Langley, the man convicted of causing his death was caught driving 45 km/h over the posted speed limit on the same road. The shocking revelation came in New Westminster’s B.C. Supreme Court Friday, as Brent Parent, 43, sat in the prisoner’s box with his head down, while prosecutors argued for a driving ban, citing Parent’s 64 driving infractions. Crown is seeking an eight-year jail sentence and wants Parent to be prohibited from driving for 15 years. O’Brien died in the early hours of March 13, 2008. Earlier this year, a judge ruled that Parent, who was driving a diesel Ford F350, became enraged when

he thought that the Chevy Silverado O’Brien was riding in had deliberately flashed its high beams at him. Parent forced the pickup carrying O’Brien and his friends – who were on their way to the airport to start a Hawaiian vacation – off the road in South Langley and into a ditch. He then returned to the scene, where he ran down and killed O’Brien. On the second anniversary of O’Brien’s death, the Langley man was pulled over by police on 16 Avenue after driving 105 km/h in a 60 km/h zone. Parent, who was convicted Jan. 19 of three road-rage-related charges, has racked up 27 speeding tickets and has had his licence suspended several times. He was also convicted of careless driving in 1993. Continued on A4

A B.C. Supreme Court judge will decide this Friday how much additional jail time Jarrod Bacon will serve, following his conviction earlier this year for conspiracy to traffic cocaine. At Bacon’s sentencing hearing last Friday in Vancouver, Crown counsel Peter LaPrairie said Bacon should receive a 21-year term for being the “operating mind” behind the conspiracy. Taking into account double credit for the time Bacon has already served, this would leave him with 15 to 16 years more years behind bars. LaPrairie also recommended that Bacon be ineligible for parole for 10 years and that his co-accused Wayne Scott – described as the “middleman” in the operation – receive a sentence of 13 to 15 years. Bacon’s lawyer, Jeffrey Ray, said a more appropriate sentence for his client would be eight years – or an additional three years and two months in prison after time served is factored in – and no time frame should be set on parole eligibility. Defence submissions for Scott have been adjourned, and a new date will be set on June 8. His lawyer, Jeremy Guild, did not make a sentencing recommendation on Friday. Bacon, 29, and Scott, 56, were each convicted in February, following their trial, of one count of conspiracy to traffic cocaine. They were arrested and charged in November 2009

and he fully intended to proceed with the purchase of the cocaine, with plans to distribute and profit from it. “The fact that it (the drug deal) never came to fruition should not affect sentencing,” he said. LaPrairie said the judge should consider that Bacon was on parole for weapons charges at the time of the undercover operation and was under “stringent bail conditions.” He also had eight prior convictions, including illegal possession of a prohibited weapon (brass knuckles) in 2002 and production of a controlled substance in 2006, for which he was given a six-month jail term. “By his own admission at trial, he is a criminal and an enforcer who wears a bullet-proof vest,” LaPrairie said. He said Scott, the maternal grandfather of Bacon’s young child, was the “go-between” who was well aware of Bacon’s criminal history and allowed his house to serve as a meeting place for discussions about the purchase of the drugs. He also made arrangements for the drop-off of the $30,000 that was to be exchanged for the first 10 kg of the drugs, supposedly coming from Mexico. That transaction never transpired, and police called a halt to the operation. Bacon has been in prison since his arrest in November 2009, while Scott, who has no prior criminal record, has been out on bail.

Walking for water $10,000+

Students make haul from MEI to Mill Lake and back Michelle WATRIN Contributor

Trying to replicate the plight of girls in Ethiopia for the upcoming Run for Water in an “Empathy Walk,” a dozen MEI Grade 9 students took the day off from school on Friday and set off for Mill Lake with empty jerry cans. They filled the cans with water from the lake, and made the second part of the trek back to MEI bearing the weight of the water on their backs, fronts, shoulders and even on their heads. “You had to keep shifting the weight and changing positions,” student Kassy Kasdorf explained. The 21.6 kilometre endeavor took five and a half hours. Moments after they returned to MEI, they stood together patting each other on the backs and taking pictures, much like a sports team that had just won a match. The periphery of their hair was covered in sweat, and their legs, arms, shoulders and backs were aching, but their

Their comments showed they had gained a new appreciation for what Ethiopian women endure. “It is HARD work.” “How easy we have it.” “[Walking to gather water] is really, really intense.” “Water is heavy.” The group giggled at the last answer, but agreed all the same.

“It’s not fair,” Paul Cazan said. “Guys don’t have to walk for water [in Ethiopia]. They work in the fields and some go to school. I would take working in the fields any day over walking that long for water.” “And the water isn’t even clean,” Indiana Letkemann added. “After all that walking, it is for dirty water. Mill Lake’s water is not clean drinking

water, but neither is the water the girls in Ethiopia walk for every day.” The fact many girls walk all day to gather water for their family that is full of germs and disease hit home through the experience, she said. The students realized their many breaks for food and water (out of water bottles) during the trek would be considered luxurious to the

girls in Ethiopia, who do somewhat similar treks every day. They also acknowledged their athletic shoes, parental support, and mild temperatures made their trek much easier. “People in North America use about 82 gallons of water a day,” Samantha Schroeder said. “[People in Ethiopia] only use about four gallons a person. You get a whole new respect for them, and realize how easy we have it here.” Jodi Tilitky agreed. “Now we know why we are running for water. We only did this for one day; they do this every day.” Most of the group plans to run the 10K run on May 27th at Mill Lake Park. After their experience, running a 10 k should be a breeze. “We wanted to see what it was like to walk for water, and now we really care about this cause,” said Kaitlyn Burkinshaw.

City ordered to address safety

Kevin MILLS

Abbotsford News

Abbotsford will now provide flag people at the Vye Road railway crossing. The move comes after Transport Canada issued an order to the city to maintain a flagging crew there until public safety can be ensured. The city received the notice on April 19, which indicated a risk to public safety due to excessive road traffic, ineffective traffic control and traffic ignoring posted stop signs. The order states Abbotsford must either provide traffic safety measures at the crossing through traffic control flagging, Monday through Friday from 8 a.m. to 4 p.m., or completely close the crossing during the same time period. City manager Frank Pizzuto said the flagging crew costs the city $500 per day.

“Flagging it is a really short-term solution,” he said. A more cost-effective solution is being sought, including the installation of railway crossing arms which would alleviate many safety concerns. Pizzuto said there is a cost-sharing program for railway arms which the city has applied for. The Vye Road crossing has been an ongoing concern for years. A proposed overpass has been on the city’s priority projects list for years, but funding has never become available. Pizzuto said another option being discussed for the future is to open up McConnell Road, by Costco, north of Vye Road. Railway arms could be placed on both roads and, potentially, one road could be open if the other was closed. “The railway intersection would have to be reworked.”

Free enterprise struggles Is the B.C. electorate truly drifting to the left? The results of two byelections last month might seem to indicate a rise in support for the NDP. But it’s just as likely to be a symptom of resistance to the right-of-centre options offered in the province today. It’s no secret the public is disenchanted with the BC Liberal brand. Where once the party name alone was deemed a sufficient selling point, they have been falling over themselves to remind us that they are “a free-enterprise coalition.” This weekend’s departure of party executive director Chad Pederson and director of communications Jehnifer Benoit to pursue opportunities in the private sector – no matter how vociferous their parting good wishes – can only be viewed by a jaundiced public as further symptoms of the BC Liberals’ slide. The B.C. electorate is angry – angry as much as anything else with a lack of leadership choices. Policy

advisers should recognize that when the public blood boils, it’s not a time to expect calm or rational decisionmaking. Lecturing, or hectoring, the electorate will likely only raise the temperature in the kitchen. It’s not just a B.C. problem. The “Occupy” movement achieved traction internationally because of the unpunished excesses of a group of economic looters. Avarice – and corporate and governmental double-speak – has led to a climate of suspicion surrounding all freeenterprise capitalism, a climate that must be overcome by responsible leadership. Many still recognize that soundly based business success is crucial to the economy, the only sure source of jobs, a proper living wage, and the money to adequately fund muchneeded social programs. It is likely that many British Columbians still support free enterprise. It’s just free-for-all enterprise they have a problem with.

Tragedy taps the memory bank Mark

Rushton On the

Other Hand The horrific hang gliding accident near Harrison Mills this weekend brought back a lot of memories. Back in 1974 an acquaintance of mine began rhapsodizing about the thrill of hang gliding, the freedom to soar like a bird. He was convincing, and that winter he and I set off for Calgary to take lessons. There the manufacturer of what was then the leading “kite” not only offered basic lessons, but levels that allowed one to assume the title “instructor.” We took the advanced training, though in hindsight it was little more than a few extra “flights” down the slopes of a downtown park followed by a few more quick trips off the little hill outside his home in Cochrane. While the training was rudimentary,

the hang gliders at that time were even more so. Fashioned of thin aluminum tubing supporting a triangle of nylon fabric, they were fragile units. And unlike the harnesses now used to connect the rider (we preferred “pilot”) to the kite, all we had was a narrow wooden seat suspended like a child’s swing from the framework by 3/8ths inch nylon rope. Fortunately, there was also a little seat belt that kept your backside attached to the board. In their day they were state of the art. In reality they were death traps. But we flew them anyway, and in the winter/spring of 1975 I was one of the first hang gliding instructors on the Lower Mainland. We used the slopes above where Abbotsford’s Sandy Hill Elementary now sits, and the south-facing hills just west of Mission, for training. Those who “survived” the bumps and broken wrists of crash landings were taken for high-elevation flights off Vedder Mountain and eventually off the large mountain to the east of Osoyoos.

Carried over from my earlier days skydiving was the mandatory instruction that before every take-off, you had someone else double check your kite, and your attachment to it. Unlike the tragic event this weekend, no one ever fell from their wing.

In their day they were state of the art. In reality they were death traps. Unfortunately, though, crashes and fatal accidents did happen. Once in Grand Forks, a kite collapsed in mid-air. On another occasion off Mount Hope, a friend launched into the downdraft created by the mountain’s shadow, and died in Silver Creek. That, and a few crashes of my own, including flying into a wind shear over

an irrigated alfalfa field in Osoyoos that caused the ground to come up very quickly, caused me to reassess my thrill seeking. After a couple of years, my kites were hung up, so to speak. There still rests within my barn a few wing spars from my old hang gliders, and a Canadian flag has flown proudly in front of my house for decades, suspended from an aluminum tube that once carried me aloft. But despite the near misses those many years ago, and even hearing about the young woman who plunged to her death, every time I watch a duck swoop into the pond out back, or seek a hawk gliding gracefully over the fields, I get the urge to “fly” again. At least today, if you are careful, and there’s no equipment failure, the sport is relatively more safe, and the adrenalin rush is incomparable. Then I remember how important it is to see the sunset each day, and relegate back to memory those sometimes chilling, but always exciting, experiences of flight. markrushton@abbynews.com

Introducing

Mayors deserve support in pot decriminalization It is good that a coalition of eight mayors is asking for the decriminalization of marijuana. While there are those who oppose this move on the grounds that pot is a gateway drug to more dangerous drugs, here is my opinion as to why they are both right, and wrong. If pot were a gateway drug then a large percentage of those over 50 would be either dead from overdose, criminally supporting a habit or just totally wasted each day from their addictions. That is my argument against the “gateway” concept. On the other hand, with pot as an illegal

substance, the only way to obtain it is through the criminal element, the pusher. The pusher, like any good salesperson/entrepreneur, will try to up-sell you to a more addictive and higher profit product, because the pusher’s only interest is making money. That, then, is my view supporting the idea that, yes, pot is a gateway drug, but only if it is illegal. I hope the mayor’s initiative will spread to other mayors, MLAs, premiers and MPs throughout the country, bringing an end to the madness. Gary Huntbatch

Fight ozone with transit It’s hardly surprising that ozone pollution continues to rise in the Lower Mainland (front-page headline, April 26, 2012). When sunlight hits vehicle exhaust, we get ozone. Since we are a car-dependent society, what else would we expect? And why would we want to point the finger at off-shore sources? Oh, wait – I get

it. Blaming someone else will get us off the hook when it comes to providing alternatives to the private vehicle (an example of which – the West Coast Express – has proven to be mightily popular). We now hear that the promised transit link over the Port Mann Bridge may come to naught. We also know that taxpayers pay plenty when it comes to gas taxes and carbon

A11

taxes. And then we read that southof-Fraser municipalities are talking about joining forces. If that happens, I expect there will be even more gas taxes. I sincerely hope that those taxes will go to providing transit alternatives for commuters. Unless, of course, we’re keen on continuing to breathe compromised air. Regina Dalton

What if ? What would happen if you died tomorrow? Let us explore this “what if ” question. Daily we prepare ourselves to live but we rarely prepare ourselves to die. If you died tomorrow, would your family be prepared to make funeral arrangements? Do they know what your wishes are? Are they documented somewhere? Is your family financially able to make these arrangements? Everyone should have his or her final wishes documented, just as everyone should have a will. Unfortunately, this is not the case. When tragedy hits then we are faced with the reality of not being prepared. We would like to introduce two new products that can help alleviate the financial burden of a funeral. For example, prearranging for someone age 50 years can cost as little as $16.00 a month. For someone age 60 it can cost as little as $19.00 a month. These plans are affordable and they will relieve the financial burden on the family while freezing escalating funeral costs. Today, there are many choices available to you. Prearranging is a responsible decision. It provides peace of mind, protects your loved-ones from having to make important decisions at an emotional time, and it helps to create a celebration of your life. We are offering a complimentary Dignity Memorial Personal Planning Guide to help you begin. In addition, we will extend a 12% savings on the HST for entrusting us with your funeral prearrangements. This will be in effect until May 30, 2012.

BACK BY POPULAR DEMAND!

A new ground-based critical care paramedic team is operating in the Fraser Valley. Based in Langley, the BC Ambulance Service (BCAS) Critical Care Transport (CCT) Program provides specialized, pre-hospital and inter-facility treatment and transport for critically ill or injured patients across the province. The new unit will primarily transport patients with life-threatening conditions who require constant monitoring and support from hospitals in Abbotsford, Chilliwack and Langley to major medical centres throughout the Lower Mainland. Most of their calls will be transporting patients

to a higher level of care, but when they are not assigned to a critical care transport, they will be available to respond to pre-hospital 911 calls. “When we reviewed the types of calls that paramedics in the Fraser Valley were doing, we found that more and more of their work was transferring patients to higher levels of care outside the local area,” said BCAS chief operating officer Les Fisher. “Adding a dedicated critical care paramedic team in the Fraser Valley will enable us to provide this specialized service in a more consistent manner and allow the local crews to be more available in their primary response areas.”

Workers volunteer to protect airfield from debris Contributor

Screwdrivers, luggage tags and even raspberries are just some of the strange items that find their way into the engines of planes at Abbotsford International Airport. But a couple dozen volunteers took to the city’s airfield last Thursday to clear the foreign object debris – or FOD – littering the premises and posing a danger to planes. “We’ve been very lucky not to have had any major FOD issues at this airport, but this is more of a proactive team-building exercise,” the airport’s operations director Parm Sidhu said. Abbotsford Airport’s first-ever FOD walk drew about 40 workers, including luggage handlers, WestJet employees and members of guest services. After spending a few hours cleaning litter, volunteers capped off the day with a barbecue. Sidhu said he plans to get as many as 200 people to help with the efforts to clear the airfield next year since the impacts of the debris can be far-reaching. “FOD costs billions of dollars damage annually (across the globe) – directly and indirectly – to this industry,” he said, adding the litter damages jet engines, which in turn causes flight delays. He said this most frequently occurs when either wind or a plane’s tire picks up errant trash and sends it zipping into the aircraft. Sidhu said Abbotsford’s location makes for some unique FOD problems not faced by other airports. “(Debris) associated with agriculture is some-

thing other airfields don’t find,” he said, noting berries often make it onto the runway before getting caught in a plane’s engine. Facilities such as Vancouver International Airport have been doing similar FOD walks for years, but Sidhu said not many small airports like Abbotsford’s are involved in these cleanups. “Our number one goal is to run a safe airport and our tenants have the same safety policies,” he said.

City staff have compiled a list of priority infrastructure projects which could be pursued if funding becomes available. At the top of the list are improvements to the capacity of Riverside Road at an estimated cost of $14 million. The plan calls for an overpass across the Canadian Pacific and Southern Rail tracks on Vye Road. Traffic frequently backs up all the way to Highway 11, which leads to the U.S. border crossing. Currently, flaggers man the crossing to ensure safety. Second on the list is a $35 million partnership proposal with the YMCA to create a new community recreation centre and swimming pool. The idea is to construct a 65,000square-foot facility which would be owned by the city but operated by the YMCA. Third on the list is a new municipal waste

diversion initiative ($1.1 million) that includes an organic waste curbside collection program, including two new collection vehicles. The remainder of the wish list includes: Q Urban Trail ($3.3 million); Q Brownfield remediation (Riverside site, cost to be determined); Q Cannell Lake water treatment ($10 million); Q UV treatment at JAMES plant ($3.8 million); Q co-generation (electricity from biogas) at JAMES plant ($3 million); Q tourism destination and/or public market or cultural facility (no information on costs or concepts are currently available); Q police headquarters expansion â&#x20AC;&#x201C; project has yet to be developed; and Q Essendene traffic redesign ($1.6 million) Council was scheduled to debate this list yesterday afternoon.

Heat battle Marlies in second round

Locals shine as volleyball provincials take over Tradex Dan KINVIG Abbotsford News

Abbotsford’s Tradex building was the hub of the B.C. volleyball scene on the weekend, as 137 teams and approximately 1,500 athletes converged in pursuit of a provincial club championship. It was wall-to-wall volleyball at the local facility, with 19 courts hosting matches in the U14, U17 and U18 age groups. When the dust had settled, two local teams had earned gold medals. The Fraser Valley Volleyball Club’s Agoge U18 boys team made a dominant run through their draw, going undefeated without dropping a single set. They capped the tourney with a straight-sets win (25-20, 2624) over the Victoria Volleyball Association. The FVVC roster featured a trio of Abbotsford athletes – Yale Secondary’s Kristof Schlagintweit, and Jeremy Lieuwen and Caleb Konrad of Mennonite Educational Institute. “We have a crazy team,” marveled Schlagintweit, who was a first team all-star while splitting his time between the setter and outside hitter positions. “All six of our starters are playing for Team B.C., and our average height is 6’5”. “We thought we could do well (at provincials), and we were playing around with our identity. We’ve realized we’re a team that’s really good at blocking, so we can’t miss any

serves.” If the results in the U14 boys division are any indication, the future appears bright for perennial high school powerhouse MEI. Altruista Black, a club helmed by Eagles Grade 8 coach Jeff Gamache, won the Tier 1 gold medal, knocking off the Focus Blazers in three sets (23-25, 25-12, 15-7) in the final. Altruista Silver, coached by Eagles junior bench boss Brad Knodel, won bronze in the Tier 2 draw. Of the 25 athletes on the two Altruista teams, 22 attend MEI, which has won eight of the last 10 provincial AA senior boys titles. “The group that’s in Grade 8 and 9 right now is probably the strongest group of volleyball players that we’ve ever had at the school,” said Gamache, whose club side didn’t lose a match all season. “It’s very exciting. They’re awesome guys to work with.” A third local team climbed the podium, as FVVC Blitz won bronze in the U18 girls draw, finishing behind the Thunder Storm of Vancouver (gold) and the Coquitlam Ducks (silver). Other provincial champions included Air Attack Gold of Richmond (U17 girls), Seaside Surf of Surrey (U14 girls Division 1 Tier 1), Nanaimo Express Blue (U14 girls Division 1 Tier 2), Stars Red (U14 girls Division 2), and BCO Red of North Vancouver (U14 girls Division 3).

Clothes that work.

The Abbotsford Heat will meet the Toronto Marlies in the second round of the Calder Cup playoffs, beginning tonight at Toronto's Ricoh Coliseum. The match-up was set on Friday, when the San Antonio Rampage knocked off the Chicago Wolves 3-2 in double overtime of Game 5 of their best-of-five first round series. The Wolves, the Vancouver Canucks' affiliate who came into the playoffs as the third seed in the Western Conference, are done. The No. 5 Rampage move on to face the No. 1 Oklahoma City Barons, while the No. 2 Marlies battle the No. 4 Heat. Goals figure to be at a premium, as Abbotsford and Toronto are two of the AHL's top defensive teams. The Toronto Maple Leafs’ farm team surrendered a league-low 175 goals in the regular season, while the Heat were sixth-best, allowing 201. Both teams are coming off first-round sweeps. The Marlies beat the Rochester Americans in three games, while the Heat broke out the brooms against the Milwaukee Admirals. The complete series schedule is as follows (all times Pacific): Game 1 – Tuesday, May 1, Abbotsford at Toronto, 4 p.m. Game 2 – Thursday, May 3, Abbotsford at Toronto, 4 p.m. Game 3 – Saturday, May 5, Toronto at Abbotsford, 7 p.m. Game 4 – Tuesday, May 8, Toronto at Abbotsford, 7 p.m. *Game 5 – Wednesday, May 9, Toronto at Abbotsford, 7 p.m. *Game 6 – Saturday, May 12, Abbotsford at Toronto, 12 p.m. *Game 7 – Sunday, May 13, Abbotsford at Toronto, 12 p.m. *if necessary

Cards split with Cannons Dan KINVIG Abbotsford News

The Abbotsford Cardinals’ offence showed up in the nick of time on Saturday, exploding in the back half of a doubleheader to salvage a split against the Vancouver Cannons. The local B.C. Premier Baseball League squad fell 5-2 in the first game of the day at DeLair Park, as Cannons starting pitcher Connor Noble turned in a dominant outing. He struck out 10 Cards batters while scattering five hits over seven innings. Abbotsford bounced back with an 8-1 win, led by a big game at the plate from third baseman Adam Revel, who went 2-for-3 with three RBIs. Luke Cooke, Riley Salter and Zach Cardoso also notched a pair of hits apiece, while Jesse McGowen went the distance on the mound, allowing just seven baserunners (six walks, one hit). The Cards sit in seventh place with a 4-5 record, and head coach Corey Eckstein noted his team is still in the thick of things with the BCPBL standings being as tight as they are. “I’ll feel much better once we get above .500,” he said. “Adam Revel had a great day at the park (on Saturday), both offensively and defensively.” The Cardinals are on the road for the next two weeks, and their next home games are on Sunday, May 13, when they host the North Shore Twins in a doubleheader at DeLair Park (12 p.m. and 2:30 p.m.).

Joe (Joseph) October 7, 1926 - April 28, 2012 The Lord called our father, grandfather, great grandfather, brother, uncle and friend home to be with Him at the age of 85, with his devoted children by his side.

Joe was born and grew up in Sneek, Friesland, The Netherlands. During World War II, and continuing after the liberation, Joe worked in the water utility office in Sneek until he was drafted by the Dutch Army, as a Sergeant, in Indonesia engineering the construction of bailey bridges. In 1951, Joe married Tina Wester and immigrated to Canada, settling in Vancouver, BC, where he worked at various jobs including Simpson-Sears in shipping and receiving. After Joe accepted a position with Matsqui Water Works, Joe and Tina moved to Matsqui Village. As this was part-time work, Joe also worked for Ray Bonn, surveyor. Joe and Tina then built a house in Abbotsford, where they raised their four children. Joe moved on in his career as well, and accepted a position with BC Hydro - Gas Division, where he worked as a planner for over 30 years until his retirement in 1986. With a selfless servant’s heart, Joe served his community by volunteering with dedication and grace for: former Ebenezer Home Society, Abbotsford Christian School Society, Councils at Gateway and Living Hope C.R.C., Chairman for various committees, former Neighbour Link, Master of Ceremonies at numerous weddings and celebrations, school crossing guard. The family gives a heartfelt “thank-you” to Menno Home; for they served and cared for Joe with compassionate hearts during the past three years.

Born September 26, 1930, in Ottawa, Ontario, and passed away on April 20, 2012, at Abbotsford Regional Hospital. Predeceased by his parents and seven siblings. Survived by one sister, Vivian; three children: Clifford and Debra (Robert) of North Bay, Ontario, and Kathy (Marcus) of London, Ontario; and four granddaughters and two great granddaughters. Reg grew up on a family farm in the Ottawa area and went on to a career in the Royal Canadian Airforce and later Transport Canada as a radar and aviation control systems technologist. His career and an interest in travel took him to locations throughout North America including the DEW Line as well as postings to RCAF bases in Germany and France. Reg enjoyed sports and the great outdoors, in particular fishing and canoeing, and he remained active to the end of his life. Reg will be remembered by friends and neighbours as an avid gardener. He loved the many varieties of plants and flowers supported by the temperate climate of the B.C. Lower Mainland. Cremation will be followed by a private ceremony and gathering of family in North Bay. The family would like to express sincere thanks to the staff and physicians of the Emergency Department of Abbotsford Regional Hospital.
