John “Jack” Notman
A resident of Morrisburg for over 50 years, John “Jack” Notman passed away at the Winchester District Memorial Hospital on Sat., June 29, 2002 at the age of 79.
Mr. Notman was the loving husband of the late Jean Notman (nee Stubbs) and the dear father of Jack (Joanne) of Mariatown and Jim (Donna) of RR 1 Morrisburg. He will be sadly missed by grandchildren Brad, Jaime, Bartt and Jenna Notman, and by many nieces and nephews. He was predeceased by a brother George and a sister Violet Bessant.
The love of his wife, Jean, brought him to Morrisburg and the love of the community kept him there. Whether your memories of Mr. Notman go back to the RCAF in the Second World War, or are of him as the owner of Notman’s Fina in the “old town”of Morrisburg, or Notman’s Shell in the “new Morrisburg”, everyone’s memories of him are special. Perhaps some recall Mr. Notman from his time working at Rohm and Haas or his years at the St. Lawrence Parks Commission – all memories to cherish as the family urges those who knew Mr. Notman to relive their memories and celebrate his life.
Respecting his wishes for privacy, there was no formal wake or funeral service, rather a quiet private family gathering was held, followed by interment of cremated remains at St. Lawrence Valley Union Cemetery, Long Sault. The family would appreciate any donations made in Mr. Notman’s memory to the Winchester District Memorial Hospital. Arrangements were entrusted to the Marsden and McLaughlin Funeral Home, Williamsburg.
