John McDONELL Obituary

McDONELL, John Francis johnfrancismcdonell
Passed away peacefully on the morning of September 26, 2012, in his 76th year, after a lengthy battle with Multiple Myeloma. Predeceased by his wife Shirley, father Leonard, mother Alice and brother Allan. He is survived by his brother Peter (Shirley) of Greenfield, and sisters Beth and Mary. He leaves behind four devoted sons - Ronnie (Leanne), Ian (Michelle), Glenn (Susannah) and Scott (Eryn) and seven beautiful grandchildren, whom Grampy doted on lovingly with encouragement, laughter and far too many jujubes. Kendra, Macy, Ainsley, Annie, Noel, Ryan and Cameron will forever cherish the many memories they created with their special Grampy - swimming in his pool during summer months, finding hidden eggs in his backyard on Easter morning, experiencing the Glengarry Highland Games with him or simply enjoying the warmth of his company. Born on January 2, 1936, John was raised in Glengarry and moved to Ottawa to begin his career as a heavy equipment operator. With the support and love of his wife Shirley, he proudly incorporated his own successful company, "J-M Crane Rentals Ltd," which he ran up until his retirement in 2008. John's greatest satisfaction was watching his closely knit family of children, daughters-in-law and grandchildren grow and succeed.
