The Association of Ontario Land Surveyors is sad to notify you of the death of John R. Hiley, OLS# 818
John passed away at the Ottawa General Hospital on December 28th, 2019.
Predeceased by his wife Isobel in 2017. Loving father of John, Richard, Margaret (Frank Fantauzzi), Bernard and Collin (Pam). He will be missed by his grandchildren, Jaymie, Jason, Emilia, Saija, Nicholas, Robyn and Shane.
John graduated from the Civil Engineering program at the University of Toronto and following his Articles was commissioned as an Ontario Land Surveyor in 1953.
After spending his early years in private practice he joined the Regional Municipality of Ottawa Carleton and then the National Capital Commission.
Cross Country Skiing and Marathon Canoeing were John’s passions and he continued with these well into retirement both as a participant and volunteer.
The family would like to thank the Hazeldean Gardens Retirement Residence, John’s close friend, Geri Anderson and the many others who made his time there so very special.
Respect and kindness were of utmost importance to John and these will be his legacy.
