"HEG" 2006 Obituary


HEGARTY o@ca.on.york_county.toronto.toronto_star 2006-04-18 published
FOLEY, Christopher Columba
Passed away at home, on Good Friday, April 14, 2006, at the age of 80, in the High Park neighbourhood where he lived for more than 40 years. Christopher was born in Kells, County Meath, Ireland on May 10, 1925. He was the beloved father of Margaret FOLEY and devoted husband to his late wife, Anne Teresa, née CLIFFORD. He is survived by his loving wife Marie Terese, née BONENFANT. Christopher was known affectionately as Christy by his wide circle of Friends, many of whom shared his passion for Irish culture. His was a life marked by a devotion to those institutions that nurtured the values he held dear, among them, the Catholic Church, the St. Vincent de Paul Society and numerous Irish social organizations. Although he moved away from his native Ireland as a teenager, Christy carried his roots with him wherever he went. He flew to Canada in 1948 on one of the early trans-Atlantic flights in search of greater opportunity. It was in Toronto that his enterprising spirit rose to the fore. Christy worked for C.N. Rail and the Royal York Hotel. Saving enough to buy his first home within six months, Christy turned it into yet another opportunity - becoming a landlord and giving other young Irish men a roof over their heads. He worked with the Metro Toronto Waterworks Department for 30 years and continued a close relationship with fellow retirees through the rest of his life. Family, work and his many community activities filled his days. Sickness did nothing to quell his stubborn streak nor dash his great love of travel. Christy will be sorely missed and fondly remembered. He leaves behind his cherished sisters-in-law Margaret HERRING, Evelyn FOLEY and longtime family friend, Mildred CREGAN. He is also survived by his loving nephews and nieces and their families: Ray FOLEY, Ann PALEN, Brian and Thomas HEGARTY, Thomas CARROLL, Peter, Gerard and Michael O'LOUGHLIN and Angela BYRNE. Christy, the youngest of six children born to Margaret SMITH and Thomas FOLEY, is predeceased by all his siblings, Kathleen, Gerty, May, Lily and brother Paddy. Special thanks to his doctor, Eckhart SCHWEIHOFER and Margaret GORECKI, the home care worker who became such a good friend. Visitation for our beloved Christy will be held Tuesday, April 18 and Wednesday, April 19 from 2-4 and 7- 9 p.m. at the Turner and Porter Yorke Chapel, 2357 Bloor Street West, Toronto, at Windermere Ave., east of Jane subway. Funeral Mass will be held Thursday, April 20 at 10: 30 a.m. at Our Lady of Sorrows Church, 3055 Bloor Street West. In lieu of flowers, donations in the name of Christopher Foley to the St. Vincent de Paul Society or ShareLife would be much appreciated.
