HERON, George Joseph   -   "I rejoiced when I heard them say, let us go to the house of the Lord."  Psalm 122:1


George Heron, 98, of Ajax, ON, passed away January 1, 2023.


George, son of Albert and Florence Heron, and loving husband of his wife, Olive (predeceased), passed away quietly at Ballycliffe Long Term Care.

He is survived by five children, Chris (Simonne), Susan (Tom) Kennedy, Jan (Larry) Noonan, Greg (Laurie), and Pat (Rose); 15 grandchildren; 21 great-grandchildren; and 3 great-great-grandchildren. He was predeceased by his brothers, Bobby and Bill; and is survived by his sisters, Jean Witherspoon and Lucy Jordi.


George's Roman Catholic faith and his childhood years during the Great Depression of the 1930s both left an indelible mark on his nature and character. During WWII, at 18, he enlisted in the Canadian Army. He landed in France on June 13, 1944, and crossed the river into Germany on his 21st birthday.


George worked for the City of Toronto as a plan examiner, and later as a building inspector. He will be greatly missed by his family and friends.


Visitation will be held at McEachnie Funeral Home, 28 Old Kingston Rd., Ajax, on Monday, January 9, 2023, from 4-8 p.m. Funeral Mass will be held at St. Francis de Sales Roman Catholic Church on Tuesday, January 10, 2023, at 10:30 a.m.
