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!

Smith Rev. JohnSMITH, Reverend John Albert - Peacefully surrounded by family on Wednesday May 23, 2018 at Campbell House Hospice, Collingwood in his 71st year, John went to be with the Lord.

John of Wasaga Beach, beloved husband and best friend for 51 years to Brenda (nee Hallman).

Loving father of Richard Smith (Bonnie Ford) and Andrea Smith (Regan Trolley).

Cherished grandfather of Mitchel Trolley, Justin and Trenton Smith and Ashley Phillips and two great grandchildren Marceline Trolley and Divonne Phillips.

Dear brother of Reta (Ed Main) and the late Dwight Smith.

John will also be missed by his mother-in-law Myrtle Hallman, brother-in-law Robert Hallman and sister-in-law Carolyn Shea and his many nieces.

John is predeceased by nephew Warren Shea.

John was blessed to have touched many lives during his almost 71 years and through pastoring of many churches. He made friends easily, shared his wonderful sense of humour openly, loved the peacefulness of the outdoors where he enjoyed hunting, fishing and a round of golf. He loved wintering in Texas where he played guitar with his many friends.

He was happiest when surrounded by friends and his family. He will be deeply missed.

Friends will be received at the Carruthers & Davidson Funeral Home, Stayner on Friday May 25, 2018 from 7 to 9 p.m. and on Saturday May 26, 2018 at the Stayner Evangelical Missionary Church, 202 Ontario Street, Stayner from 10 a.m. for the Funeral Service at 11 o’clock. Reception to follow. Private interment.
