Jon is survived by his loving wife Brenda Walker-Handy and his children Bryan Handy (Julia), Heather Handy (Jeremiah) and Ashley Handy (Donnie). Much loved grandfather to Blair, Tucker, Miah, and Brielle. Jon is also survived by his devoted and caring siblings Penny Stokes (Rob), Peter Handy (Barb), and David Handy (Brenda), and much loved by many nieces and nephews. Jon is predeceased by his mother Hazelann and his father Colin. He is also predeceased by his brother Richard Handy.

Jon so loved his work at TMI Climate Solutions in Pointe Claire, Quebec, where he worked as a CAD programmer, and befriended all he met. Jon enjoyed the game of golf with his brothers Pete and David, and his buddy Brendon Hunt. Jon also loved playing his Joe Satriani guitar, camping, cycling and kayaking. Many thanks to the Walker family for the rigorous training program. Jon loved every moment of it! Special thanks to Brendon and Karen Hunt who took Jon on as a little brother, in the Big Brother program 48 years ago and strong. Everlasting love xxxooo.

A private celebration of Jon’s life will be attended by family and close friends at Lahaie and Sullivan Funeral Homes West Branch, 20 Seventh Street West (613-932-8482).

Dear Uncle Jonny,

You were a caring and loving and selfless man and I am honored to have known you even if it was a short time. It pains me to think of you gone but yet you are still with us. We were not blood related, but I still called you uncle and I shed tears for you. For your wife. For your children and grandchildren. For your siblings and in-laws. For your friends. For all of those who were honored to have known you. You will be heavily missed.
Rest in Power
Xoxo
Love Chelsey

I've always considered Jon was a good friend. Unfortunately we lost touch many years ago when he moved away for a couple of years and I began to work further away in Montreal and Toronto. I've worked with him on two occasions. First at Richmond Die Casting and later in Montreal. We used to commute together for over two years, taking turns with the driving. We worked side by side very day and used to chat a lot. Jon even showed me how to use the CMM back in the Richmond days. He was always so pleasant. We used to have a lot of fun together. We used to go out to bars, ski, and play hockey. On occasion, we would go to Montreal to see the Habs play if we were lucky enough to get tickets. I shall miss him.

We are crushed and devastated by Jon’s recent illness and passing. No words can convey the sense of loss of such a fine person.

Having known Jon since I was matched with him through the Big Brothers program when he was a boy of 12, we share a long history. We experienced firsthand his kindness and concern for others as he progressed through high school, then off to college, eventually starting his successful career, and building his own family throughout the years.

Many of my close friends and relatives, all of whom have the fondest of memories of Jon, have called or reached out to me in these last few days recalling many instances and stories experienced with Jon. He was not just someone who I saw for a few hours each week, but rather he was, throughout the years, woven into the fabric of my own family and friends as well; and in so many ways formed an integral and everlasting part of my family.

Know that our thoughts are with Brenda and the family in this devastating time, and that Jonny will always and forever hold an important place in our hearts. Gone, but never forgotten.

Jonny, I have many wonderful memories of our happy times we spent together. From our family gatherings in Martintown and Apple Hill and your visits to Alberta, they were the best of times. We braved the gale force winds of the prairies as we camped, scaled the peaks of the Rocky Mountains and enjoyed nature at its best. Your good nature, honesty and integrity made you the fun loving and well loved man we admired. I will remember forever your contagious laugh and big smile. Rest In Peace my brother.

Dear brother, I will miss our conversations, your visits, the laughter. I wish you had had more time with your children and grandchildren, lots more golf games, and many more camping trips with your wife who loved you so. Lots of love, your big sister xoxoxo xoxoxo
