BLAKELEY, Stanley - On Tuesday, July 26, 2022, Stanley Blakeley passed peacefully, in his ninety-seventh year, at Credit Valley Hospital.
Stanley was predeceased by his wife, Connie Blakeley (neé Pomeroy) in 2005.
Connie and Stanley were wed on May 20, 1960.
Brian Blakeley and spouse Marianthi Ioannou of Toronto and Patricia Blakeley of Mississauga will dearly miss dad's warm humour and love of life.
Stanley will be also missed by sister-in-law, Donna Pomeroy of Hamilton, Ontario; and his many nieces, nephews, grandnieces and grandnephews in Canada, Northern Ireland, Scotland, England and Australia.
Stanley, born on July 13, 1926, was the last living child of the ten children born to Joseph Henry Blakely and Anne Eliza Blakely (neé Kingsmore) of Dunmurry, Antrim, Northern Ireland.
Following in the footsteps of his brothers, John, David and Bertie, Stanley enlisted in the armed services of the United Kingdom in September 21, 1943 and served as a gunner's assistant in the Royal Marines until December 30, 1946.
There will be a private service as per Stanley's wishes.
We thank the doctors, nurses and staff for their professional care and kindness to our dad in the final difficult days of his life.
In lieu of flowers, donations to Trillium Health Partners Foundation would be appreciated by the family.
