Obituary

WEST, John Hamilton

Passed away peacefully on Thursday, August 26, 2021 at the age of 87.  Beloved husband of Shirley (nee Sturgeon) for 61 years.  Loving father of David (Susan) and Debbi (Jeff).  Proud grandfather of Mark, Luke, Brittany and Cameron.

John retired from Eaton's after 43 years of exceptional service and spent the next 28 years enjoying woodworking, hunting and fishing.  His years at the Little Beaver Hunting Camp at Crown Lake to his fishing trips in Temagami and Kipiwa were stories and memories he treasured.  He loved playing and watching lacrosse and was so proud that the tradition was carried on by his son and four grandchildren.  When Chaffey Fire Station #2 was opened and looking for volunteers, he began another chapter in his life.  Throughout the many years of service he formed lifelong friendships.

Special thanks to Dr. Trenholm, Huntsville Closing the Gap Healthcare, Hospital East Wing staff and Algonquin Grace for their dedicated care to John.
