CANADA: Ontario Deaths, Ottawa to Ontario County

These records are arranged by location where people died or are buried if different,  beginning in the North then from the Eastern region of the counties within the Province, then moving towards Toronto, and south to the US border. Older county names are used,  not current ones. Boundaries changed over time so check records before and after the county location of your interest. Townships were moved to different counties. 

Some location names are duplicated between a County in one part of the province and a Township in another, with considerable distance between them. So “Perth” is a Village in Lanark County in the Eastern Regions of the Province, but also a County in the South Western area.  

Spelling on records is not changed, and may appear incorrect for today, but common in earlier time periods.

Cliff coped so gracefully through his seven years of dealing with Lewy Body Dementia and Parkinson’s Disease. Never letting the disease define him, he truly was one of the most kind and gentle souls there ever was. Cliff had a strong faith in the promises found in the Bible of the resurrection of the dead and the peaceful new world. When asked what message he would like to pass on to people, he would often say “tell them to keep on, keeping on!” In his honor, a virtual memorial was held on zoom on Saturday, May 15, 2021 at 2:00pm.

Paul Gillespie  passed away peacefully on June 20, 2021 in his 73rd year in the thoughtful care of Crown Ridge Long Term Care Home in Trenton, Ontario. Beloved husband of Sherry French , dear son of the late Bob and Kay Gillespie and brother of the late Ron and Joan Gillespie. Remembered by his niece, Genevieve French and nephew, Alex French and their families and many cousins. He will be greatly missed by residents of his Brighton By The Bay community. Never shy about giving of himself, Paul volunteered many hours on local committees and as a driver for Meals On Wheels in Brighton. He was an avid geographer, incorporating his love of maps, atlases and his inquisitive mind into the many travel destinations that he and Sherry visited over the years. Keenly interested in cars and car races, Paul loved hearing the sounds of the roaring race cars around the various tracks of the NASCAR, Formula One and Indy circuits. Visiting out of the way restaurants and appreciating food and décor offerings were included in Paul’s list of passions. Paul and Sherry spent many years at their Gloucester Pool cottage where Paul put his handyman skills into practice and social gatherings abounded and where Paul himself as the perfect host. Memorial donations may be made to Parkinson’s Canada. A private service to honour Paul was held..
