"MYH" 2008 Obituary


MYHAL o@ca.on.york_county.toronto.globe_and_mail 2008-07-10 published
After 87 years of a very full and robust life, John MYHAL passed away at Saint_Joseph's Lifecare Centre on Sunday July 7th, 2008. He is survived and forever rejoiced in by his wife Doris, his children Cheryle OLDROYD (Laurie), Beverly GRENVILLE- MYHAL (Allan HUTCHINSON/HUTCHISON,) Gregory MYHAL (Hoa,) and Denise PARRY (Roger,) as well as by his sisters Helen MANTON and Pauline BONYUN. He was a favourite 'Grandad Johnny' to his many loving grandchildren and great-grandchildren. Predeceased by his sisters Kay ROPER, Anne BARNES, and big brother Mike MYHAL. John attended Brantford Collegiate Institute and served in the Royal Canadian Air Force during the war. After 1945, he returned to Brantford and began his cabinetmaking career on Richardson Street where he created his woodworking masterpieces for the next 60 years. Examples of his superb craftsmanship grace numerous homes and businesses throughout Brant County. In the summer, when not 'at the shop', John could be found perfecting his other passion on the local golf fair ways. He was a formidable opponent, but always a more generous friend and playing partner - he achieved his treasured 'hole in one' late on in his career at the Burford Golf Links. John will be loved and remembered by all for his bighearted spirit, his corny sense of humour, and always 'being there' for family and Friends. Please join our family in celebrating John's modest, but still remarkable and exemplary life. If a man's life can be measured by the firmness and warmth of his handshake, then John had no equal. Visitation will be held at McCleister Funeral Home, 495 Park Rd. N. Brantford, on Friday from 7-9 p.m. And Saturday from 3-5 p.m. A Memorial Service will take place in the Chapel on Saturday at 5: 00 p.m. As expressions of sympathy, donations in John's memory made to the Grand River Conservation Foundation would be appreciated. McCleister 519-758-1553
