Carter, John



June 10, 1927 – June 15, 2021

John passed away on June 15th, 2021, peacefully in the late afternoon at Trillium

Hospital, Mississauga. He was born in London, England and was the second youngest

of five children, all having predeceased him. As a WWII veteran who served in the

Royal Scots Desert Rats regiment of the British Army of the Rhine (BAOR), he

immigrated to Canada in 1949 where he worked briefly as a Survey Rod and Chainman

in Port Arthur/Fort William before finding work in Toronto in the grocery business. He

returned to school to further his technical education and embarked on a lengthy 30+

year career with Square D Electric (Toronto, Montreal, Edmonton and Mississauga) as

Plant Manager. He developed a love of watching Canadian hockey and football, spent

countless hours working on his stained glass lamps and other creations, enjoyed bike

riding, cross country skiing, travelling and lane swimming but most importantly spending

time with his family especially his grandchildren and great grandchildren.

John met his devoted wife Lucienna of almost 70 years at Marshall Manor in 1950 and

they married in August 1951 with Toronto as their first home together. He is survived by

his wife Lucienna (nee Thornton) and their three sons, Michael (Joanne), Keith

(Heather) and Richard (Gayle), six grandchildren, Steven and Jessica, Kelly (Adriana)

and Kevin (Chelsea), Amanda and Laura, and five great grandchildren, Sterling, Maelle

and Aoibheann, and Norah and Quinn. As per his wishes, cremation without service. In

lieu of flowers, contributions in his memory can be made to the Trillium Health Partners

Foundation for the care he received.
