Obituary for Tyrone Edward Johnston

JOHNSTON, Tyrone Edward Peter

January 6, 1942 - September 24, 2019

Tyrone passed away peacefully at the age of 77 after a few years of failing health. Tyrone is survived by his two children, daughter Celine (Chris) Pereverzoff of Squamish, B.C. and son Tyrone Patrick (Trish) Johnston of Dublin, Ireland: five children; Chadd, Isabelle, Sophie, Nicole, and Chloe: Brothers; Carr (Suzanne) of St. Catharine's, ON and Rory of Halifax, NS along with many nieces, nephews, cousins and friends. Tyrone was predeceased by his parents Eddie and Lorraine (MacDonald), his brothers Clair and Greg and his first wife Judy (Marchildron). Tyrone was born in Winnipeg, MB and grew up in many Canadian and US cities, but he spent the majority of his years in the Greater Toronto Area. He built his dream house on Conc. 12 in the shape of a barn in 1973 where he happily raised his family for several years in Perkinsfield. He has fond memories of snowmobiling, fishing, drinking and partying with family and friends. His final years were enjoyed close to his grandchildren in Squamish, BC and Dublin, Ireland.

Tyrone was passionate about many things; his family, travel/road trips, telling stories, his outstanding 30 year sales career at Pitney-Bowes, Blues music and Blue Cruises.

A second Funeral Mass will be held at St. Patrick's RC Church Perkinsfield, Tiny, ON October 26, 2019 at 11 a.m., with a burial and reception to follow.
