COULL, John Robert

Bathed in the warm hues of the rising sun, our beloved John Coull slipped peacefully from this life into the next, following a stroke.

John was born on February 17th, 1951 to parents Margaret and Robert Coull. He grew up in Scarborough, along with his two younger siblings, Doug and Sandra. John discovered a love for music and golf early on, and both passions stayed with him his whole life. In particular, it was jazz and big band that captured his heart strongest; John’s “working music” at home was usually Arturo Sandoval, Maynard Ferguson, or Dizzy Gillespie, at maximum volume.

While John was often busy with work or playing trumpet with Toronto big band The Skyliners, he found time for golf as often as he could. Son Colin shared John’s love for golf, and the two played together as often as they could. John loved the annual “Guys’ Golf Trip to Myrtle” with Colin, Doug, and a few of their friends, spending a week golfing in autumnal Myrtle Beach.

John and Brenda (nee Burke) married in 1974, and had two children: Colin (Tori; Kingston and Kenzie) and Cheryl (Jasen; William). John always made time for his children’s activities, including Colin’s Scouting activities and Cheryl’s many dance competitions; he was always an enthusiastic cheering section! When his grandchildren came along John was just as excited, taking them to playgroups and parks, out for Timbits, and learning everything he could about what they enjoyed. He learned a great deal about superheroes (Kingston), princesses (Kenzie), and Star Wars (William), listening happily to everything they taught him.

After a career with the Toronto Police Service and the Ontario Fire Marshalls office, John spent the final years of work with Origin and Cause, Inc. Always eager to solve the mystery, John’s police skills and fire investigation skills kept him curious and determined, eager to apply what he knew to the pursuit of justice and answers. John retired in 2016, making even more time for his greatest passions: his family, his trumpet, and his golf.

While we are all brokenhearted to say goodbye, we are thankful for the time we had together, and all the beautiful memories. Ever in favour of a morning round of golf, John no doubt had an early tee time the sunny morning he left. Hit ‘em straight! We love you.

GREGG, Barbara Ann

It is with heavy hearts that the family of Barbara Anne Gregg (nee Wilson) of Toronto and formally Sundridge announce her passing on Wednesday February 17, 2021 at the age of 88 years.

Barbara was our beloved wife, mother, grandmother, great grandmother, sister, aunt and friend. She will be lovingly remembered by her children, Penny (Rick), Judi, Jeff (Kris) and Bev. She will also be remembered by her grandchildren, Dylan, Liam, Katie and Julia, as well as her brother Gary (Lynn), her great grandchildren, and all her nieces and nephews. Barbara was predeceased by her ever loving husband of 64 years, Harry James, her sister Eleanor and her first born grandchild, Jenna Chrystine.

Barbara was born in Sudbury and grew up in London, Ontario. She met her husband Harry in Sudbury while staying with family. She went on to become an elementary school teacher and loved her career. Barbara and Harry had four beautiful children also born in Sudbury and later moved the family from Garson to Scarborough. After raising their kids Barbara and Harry moved up north to Sundridge where they embarked upon a new style of life which included The Castle Restaurant, a family endeavour. Being an active board member of the United Church and participating in both the church and community choirs were some of her favourite things along with baking for social events. Another was being surrounded by all of her family, not only during the holidays, but always.

Due to Covid, the family will have a small, private service at Jubilee United Church in North York and a Celebration of Life will be held at a later date.

The family wishes to send a special thank you to the staff at Providence Healthcare for their care and compassion.
