Jon was born and raised in Lindsay and moved to Toronto in 1972 where he attended Uof T for 5 years. He continued to live in and enjoy his life in Toronto for many years. He owned and drove his own cab for more than 20 years and then switched to a more technical career after attending George Brown College. More time passed and he decided to return to Lindsay where he lived until he passed away. He fought an amazing battle with pancreatic cancer for over 8 years. Jon was a volunteer driver with Wheels of Hope, driving cancer patients to appointments in various hospitals throughout southern Ontario.
Jon wished to thank the many health care workers involved with his care while at Princess Margaret, UHN, Lakeridge Health and the Ross Memorial Hospitals and all of the staff that worked hard to help him fight his battle. Also the community care nurses and PSW’s who came to his home to help him. Also, to the many people that worked with hospice who offered him support and comfort. And also Dr. S. Hainer and his staff. Jon greatly appreciated all those who in any way helped with his care.
