Obituary:

Died at home in Ancaster, on May 6, 2008, in his 92nd year. Beloved husband of the late Elizabeth Janet, father of Lawrie (Tom) and Julia (Justin), and Grandad of his adored grandchildren, Jane, Alex and Chris, by all of whom he is missed and lovingly remembered.

Jock was fascinated with electronics and his lifelong hobby was amateur radio from age 13 when he got his first amateur radio licence for code, to his later experiments with amateur T.V. He graduated in Electrical Engineering from the University of Toronto, and was President of his Class of ’39.

During the Second World War he served with the Royal Canadian Signals Corps in Italy and the Netherlands, retiring as a major at the end of the war. He was a Life Member of the Royal Canadian Military Institute.

His working life was with Canadian Westinghouse, notably, managing the Turbine and Generator Division, and retiring as Assistant to the President.

Jock’s community involvement included serving as Church Warden for St. John’s Anglican Church in Ancaster, and membership on the Board of Directors of St. Peter’s Hospital, Hamilton, where he was intimately involved in the major building projects undertaken by St. Peter’s during his tenure. With Janet, he volunteered enormous time and effort over many years to the Art Gallery of Hamilton. He headed the building committee of the “new” Art Gallery of Hamilton, now a pillar of cultural life in Hamilton and environs, as well as serviing as President and Chairman of the Board of Directors.

He bequeathed to his childrean and grandhcildren enquiring minds, a fascination with science and nature, and a love of life and fun.

Jock was able to have his wish of remaining in his home of 54 years because of the fond and able care of Tammy Carlson, her family, and Richard Bell. He also benefited from wonderful medical and personal care from Dr. Michael Stephenson, the staff at CCAC (Hamilton), and many others.

In lieu of flowers, a donation in memory of Jock to your favourite charity; the Art Gallery of Hamilton, 123 King Street West, Hamilton L8P 4S8; The Military Communications Museum, P.O. Box 17000, Station Forces Kingston K7K 7B4; or St. John’s Anglican Church, 272 Wilson Street East, Ancaster L9G 2B9, would be appreciated.

A memorial service to celebrate Jock’s life will be held on August 23, 2008, at 11:00 a.m. at St. John’s Anglican Church, Ancaster, Ontario.
