We Regret to Announce That We Have Had to Discontinue

For years, we have posted regional death notices as a free public service, while taking on the complete cost of publishing ourselves. We can no longer do so.

Without participating Funeral Centres, Cemeteries, Monument Suppliers and Local Businesses advertising with us, we can no longer run this website at a financial deficit.

We have received dozens of emails by folks upset at the discontinuation of our daily updates, and we apologize.  We also love this site, and considered it a great service to the public by accumulating and listing all Regional Obituaries in one spot.

Also, we appreciate the privacy to not contact the families of friends for funeral arrangements who may be shortly passing, as well as, friends not having to frequently check all local funeral centre websites for service information.

Sponsors are welcome to participate and support SimcoeObituaries.com by advertising (i.e., local funeral centres, cemeteries, monument suppliers or local businesses, ...we would also include your Banners and Direct Links to your websites) – please contact us !

Participating Funeral Centres will be prominently Featured; within their Region, and within the Obituary Notices, including Links redirecting viewers to your Websites.

We are continuing to publish notices to DurhamObituraies.com …  and also for now, TorontoObituaries.com and HaltonObituaries.com

Thank you for visiting our website.

We plan to have the 9 other Regional Websites back on-line soon!

Harvey JimHARVEY, James 'Jim' Andrew - At age 76, died peacefully at his home in Oro-Medonte on Friday, February 9, 2018.

He left this earth to reunite with his dear parents Andrew and Gladys Harvey.

Jim is survived by his loving sister Lorna Shaw, his 4 children, 10 grandchildren and 7 great grandchildren.

Jim had a true entrepreneurial spirit. He owned several businesses, but most enjoyed his years as a Tennis Court Contractor, working all across Ontario.

Jim had many skills, most self-taught. He truly enjoyed sharing his knowledge and experience with others. He thrived on helping people, and fixing things. Jim always saw potential where others did not.

He was a true outdoorsman - he loved cutting firewood and maintaining his farm.  His Massey Ferguson tractor was an extension of himself, and operating it was one of his greatest joys. Always with a joke or a memory at the ready, Jim was an exceptional story teller. He loved life, and had fun.

Jim lived fearlessly, and stood up for what he believed. As an environmental activist, and determined protester of Site 41, he devoted much time advocating for the protection of our most precious resource; clean water.  Jim was one of a kind. He was well known in the Elmvale area as “Mr. Greenpeace”, and was easy to spot driving his truck that was customized with environmental and polar bear decals.

Jim’s most significant accomplishment is the legacy he’s left his family, one of selflessness, resilience, a strong work ethic, and a true zest for life.

Jim will be dearly missed by the many friends and family members who were blessed to have known and loved him. His memory will be cherished always by the light of his life, his great granddaughter Journey – a.k.a. “Stormy”.

Cremation has taken place. 

Memorial donations to Greenpeace or Scouts Canada would be greatly appreciated.
