Norman Percival “Percy” Armstrong
Norman Percival “Percy” Armstrong passed away suddenly on Fri., April 28, 2017 in his 88th year.
He was the loving husband of June, and the dear father of Rae (Cecilia) of Oakville, Judy (Dennis) Hunter of Morrisburg, Samantha Armstrong of Toronto, and Dean (Robin) of Cambridge. He will be fondly remembered by 10 grandchildren and eight great-grandchildren.
Born and raised on a farm outside of Inkerman, Percy grew up to be an accomplished athlete in several sports (playing five years with the Inkerman Rockets), an operator and station agent with CPR for 42 years, and an active member of every community he lived in (Inkerman, Kemptville, and Winchester). Percy dedicated his life to his family, his church, and his community. He tirelessly raised funds for Winchester District Memorial Hospital, the Heart and Stroke Foundation, and the Winchester United Church. He was recognized for his reliable, energetic, and outstanding contributions by being named, along with June, “Senior of the Year” by the Township of North Dundas in 2001. His energy, sense of humour, enthusiasm, and leadership made him a unique and memorable person who inspired and touched the hearts of everyone who knew him.
Family and friends paid their respects at the Winchester Chapel of Hulse, Playfair and McGarry Funeral Home, 472 Main St. in Winchester on Mon., May 1 from 4 to 9 pm. The funeral service was held at Winchester United Church on Tues., May 2 at 11 am with Rev. Christine Lowson officiating.
