Founder of region's Big Brothers organization dies
Sailor, Canadian Football League player player, husband, teacher remembered
By Michael GENNINGS, The Connection, Page 17
A former Georgian Triangle man who served his country in a time of war, enjoyed a brief Canadian Football League career and went on to become a passionate teacher and founder of the local chapter of Big Brothers, died last month in Saskatchewan.
John PENNOCK died November 15 in a Saskatoon hospital following injuries he received three weeks earlier when a car making an illegal left turn hit him.
He was 81.
"His death leaves a large hole in the lives of a lot of people," close friend John LIOTTA of Collingwood said Monday. "Everyone I've spoken to has felt a real sense of loss. People loved John and that feeling was reciprocated."
PENNOCK's wife of 58 years, Myrt, in a telephone interview Monday, said the car struck him during an afternoon walk near their apartment in the prairie city.
The Regina native came to the Georgian Triangle in 1968 to become the principal at Stayner Collegiate Institute. By that time, however, he'd already had an impressive career.
He spent four years in the Royal Canadian Navy during the Second World War, serving as a seaman on a ship that hunted German submarines in the North Atlantic.
After the war PENNOCK returned to dry land and finished his high school studies in Regina, meeting and marrying his wife in the process. Around the same time he played for just over a year as a guard with the Saskatchewan Roughriders.
"He was a very good athlete. He played sports the whole time growing up. It was something you could do in those days even if you didn't have a lot of money."
PENNOCK left the Canadian Football League to attend McGill University in Montreal, where after three years he earned a bachelor of science degree in physical education.
He subsequently went to the University of Manitoba for a year, where he took further education courses.
After he taught for two years in Saskatoon and then rejoined the Navy as a lieutenant-commander. He would again serve his country for seven years. PENNOCK returned to the military because the couple struggled to make ends meet after his university studies, his wife said.
When he left the service it was back to teaching, this time in Stoney Creek, Ontario PENNOCK was a physical education teacher until he came to Stayner Collegiate as principal.
PENNOCK and his wife lived in Wasaga Beach when they were in the Georgian Triangle.
His idea to start Big Brothers in the Georgian Triangle came in 1969 following a church convention the couple attended in Pennsylvania.
"We both came home with the same idea -- that something like this was needed," she said.

Big Brothers founder dies
John PENNOCK was a lot of things in life but his legacy is no doubt founding an organization locally that provides young children with a role model
By Michael GENNINGS, Page 1
A former Georgian Triangle man who served his country in a time of war, enjoyed a brief Canadian Football League career and went on to become a passionate teacher and founder of the local chapter of Big Brothers, died last month in Saskatchewan.

When he left the service it was back to teaching, this time in Stoney Creek, Ontario PENNOCK was a physical education teacher until he came to Stayner Collegiate as principal.
PENNOCK and his wife lived in Wasaga Beach when they were in the Georgian triangle.
LIOTTA, the head of guidance at Stayner Collegiate when PENNOCK was principal, said that his friend always had an open door policy at the high school.
"Every decision he made was based on what is good for the person involved," LIOTTA said, adding "We shared a lot of times together, our wives became Friends and we visited one another."
PENNOCK's wife made similar comments.
"He was totally committed to education, his community and family," Myrt said. "He really liked young people."
His idea to start Big Brothers in the Georgian Triangle came in 1969 following a church convention the couple attended in Pennsylvania. Myrt recalled that while in the United States the Big Brothers program was one of the topics discussed.
"We both came home with the same idea -- that something like this was needed," she said.
PENNOCK got the ball rolling by writing a letter to Big Brothers of Canada. The organization put him in touch with the Orillia chapter, which helped him get Big Brothers of South Georgian Bay off the ground.
The founder didn't limit himself to the administrative work that came with getting Big Brothers operational. A history of the local chapter, compiled by staff, notes that PENNOCK himself helped paint and paper the first office at the old King George School in Collingwood.
He also spoke to area service clubs to drum up funds.
"John's passing is a real loss to our community," Debbie KESHESHIAN, the current executive director of Big Brothers-Big Sisters of the Georgian Triangle, said Friday
PENNOCK left Stayner Collegiate after seven years to work as a superintendent with the Simcoe County Board of Education and finally retired in 1983.
Still, his wife said, they didn't really put their feet up. After retiring the couple went to Japan for a year where he taught English.
Once home PENNOCK continued helping the community volunteering with the Easter Seal Society and the Red Cross, Myrt said.
The couple also "traveled all over the world", she added.
Her husband's other interests included collecting stamps and jazz music.
Almost six years ago they decided it was time to be closer to family Myrt explained they moved to Saskatoon, where their son Dan lives. Another son, Michael, lives in Victoria, British Columbia, and a daughter, Jorja WEISS, is in Guelph.
Moving to Saskatoon wasn't a hard choice, his wife said.
"John was always a prairie boy at heart," she said.
As such PENNOCK was cremated and his ashes spread on the prairies. Along with his wife and three children, PENNOCK is survived by five grand_sons.
