Obituary of John Hayward Lown
John "Jack" Hayward Lown passed away December 12 at his home in Apsley where he had been recovering from surgery. He had been visiting Apsley since 1970, and in 2013 moved here permanently. He and his wife, Helen, very much enjoyed all Apsley had to offer - coffee shops, get-togethers of all kinds, and looking after their property. Jack very much wanted to give back to Apsley, and since he was an artist, his way was to draw cartoons for the Apsley Backroads. In addition to being an artist, Jack was also a musician, and very much enjoyed all creative pursuits. He had also been an actor at the "Curtain Club" in Richmond Hill, and in a number of CBC television productions. All of us loved that he was very intelligent, and as per his brother, had a "giant brain"! Jack was very family-oriented and close to all of us, including the next generation - his nephews, nieces, and great-nephew. He was a mild-mannered, gentle man, and was taken too soon. He is greatly missed by his family and friends. A Celebration of Life may be held at a later date.
