John Samuel Hartley


November 13, 1928 – April 14,2018

John passed away peacefully in his 90th year in the St.Catharines General Hospital. He will be greatly missed by Joan, his wife of 65 years and his children, JoAnn (Brian), Bruce, Janet (Scott) as well as his grandchildren Greg, Laura, Matthew and Brianna. John was predeceased by son Blake and sister Ruth Sturch. John was a lifelong resident of St. Catharines.  He designed and built the family home, with his usual meticulous attention to detail. John had an inquisitive mind and enjoyed his work, first as a toolmaker at Lightning Fastener and then at General Motors until his retirement in 1990. Afterwards he and Joan enjoyed travelling, the grandchildren, and woodworking projects. He was an avid birder, photographer, card player and craftsman as well as a square and round dancer.  His collections of tools are second to none. John’s family appreciates the wonderful care he received at Pioneer Elder Care. Expressions of sympathy may be made to Alzheimer’s Society of Canada. The family will receive friends at 10am Saturday April 21st at Silver Spire United Church, 366 St Paul St. Service at 11
