GIFFORD, John Marston 1916 - 2007 Died peacefully, courageously and with grace in his 91st year after a long series of illnesses at Kingston General Hospital on Thursday, May 31, 2007. Known as "Giff", "Poppy Giff" and "Grampa Giff", he was also husband to his pre-deceased wife, Barbara or "Cuddie" (nee Macnee) for over 47 years. He was a soldier, business executive, senior public servant and consultant. As a father his values, role model, people skills and humour will be carried forward by his sons, Tony (Nancy Mooers) with their daughters, Lee Simms (Mike), Sally and Kathleen, Andy (Leslie Denman), and Walter (Josephine Cumming) with their sons, Peter and Matthew, and daughter, Kate. As a Great-Grandfather he is survived by his two cherished great grandchildren, Charlie and Elspeth Simms. His family will remember and cherish his wonderful joke telling and laughter, his love of reading, music (especially jazz) and learning, his charity and community work, his attentively listening when we needed advice or a nudge to do the right thing. Deepest thanks are offered to the staff at Briargate Retirement Home and the doctors and nurses at Kingston General Hospital for their care, kindness and advice to John and his family. The family will receive friends at the Robert J. Reid & Sons Funeral Home, 309 Johnson Street, (at Barrie Street) Kingston on Sunday from 1-4 p.m. Funeral service will be held in "The Chapel the Corner" on Monday, June 4th at 11:00 a.m. In lieu of flowers donations to the Saint John's Ambulance Society or the charity of your choice would be deeply appreciated by his family.
