"ODW" 2007 Obituary


O'DWYER o@ca.on.york_county.toronto.globe_and_mail 2007-07-11 published
O'CONNELL, John F.X., P.Eng.
"I am full of wonder at what is coming next… it's gonna be powerful"
Peacefully on Monday, July 9, 2007 at Credit Valley Hospital, following a long illness borne with integrity, humility and courage. Predeceased by his beloved Ange (née Angela McGOWAN) in 2000. Forever missed by his children Tish (Letitia O'CONNELL,) Dan with fiancée Diane O'DWYER and Kate O'Connell MAYFIELD. His grandchildren John, Clare and Daniel Barker and Michael Mayfield will always be inspired by their beloved Gramps. Also missed by sisters Pat BARLETTA and Joan MULROONEY, sister-in-law Joan O'CONNELL and many nieces and nephews. Predeceased by sister Jean and brothers Jim and Bill. Born in Brooklyn, New York in 1930, John was recruited out of his graduating class at Brooklyn Polytechnical Institute to come to Toronto to help build its new subway. Throughout a long career in design and construction he was a leader on many projects that shaped Southwestern Ontario. He was fiercely proud of his Irish heritage and citizenship, and lived by the motto, "American by birth, Irish by the grace of God."Possessed of an inquiring and discerning mind, his quiet, perspicacious and slyly mischievous nature endeared him to many. He was a man of deep faith, selflessly devoted to his family, a wise father who taught by quiet example and a model of integrity to his children and grandchildren. He will never be forgotten. The family will receive Friends from 6-9 p.m. on Wednesday, July 11 at the Ward Funeral Home, 52 Main Street South, (Highway 10), Brampton. Mass of Christian Burial at Saint Mary's Roman Catholic Church, 66A Main Street South, Brampton on Thursday, July 12 at 10: 30 a.m. followed by interment at Mount Calvary Cemetery in Trenton.
