Obituary of John Fitzpatick
JOHN C. FITZPATRICK
With great sadness we announce the passing of John Carrigan Fitzpatrick on Monday, July 30, 2018. He will be deeply missed by his wife, Maureen (O’Rourke); his sons, Sean and Michael Fitzpatrick; his daughters-in-law, Sherry (Cromaz) and Stacey (Callahan); his grandchildren, Cal, Arowyn, Greer and Riley. John was predeceased by his parents, John and Mary Fitzpatrick.
John grew up and spent most of his life in Toronto. Upon completion of his B. Comm. at Loyola University (Montreal), John returned to Toronto and began a very long and successful career at TD, where he retired as an SVP after 30+ years with the Bank. John was very active in the Toronto business community where he was a good friend, dealmaker, and mentor to many.
Outside of work, John had many passions which included the outdoors, squash with his Granite buddies, golf, and fishing, which took him on many great adventures across Canada and the U.S. John was also very community minded, as reflected by his years of work on the Women’s College Hospital Board, his (and Maureen’s) work with, and contributions to, Providence Healthcare, his time on the Granite Club Board, and many years coaching his sons’ hockey/soccer/baseball teams.
Most of all John loved his family and was a dedicated husband to Maureen and a great 'dad' to his sons Sean and Michael. John and Maureen shared a wonderful life together, having met in Toronto at the age of 16 on the night of Hurricane Hazel. Together they had a fantastic life, travelling the world and enjoying many a noisy dinner party with their friends. His warm and loving personality, and sense of humor will be dearly missed.
A celebration of John's life will be held in Blessed Sacrament Church, 24 Cheritan Avenue on Friday, August 3rd at 11:30 a.m. A reception will be held at the church immediately following the mass. Condolences, photographs and memories may be forwarded through www.humphreymilesnewbigging.com.
