It is with profound sadness that we announce the passing of our warrior John on Sunday, May 17, 2020 at the age of 74. He is survived by his beloved wife Daisy (Lynne) of 50 years, cherished daughter Jennifer (Dan Fuciarelli) and proud Grandad of Lucy.

Son of the late Fred and Doris Ayling. Admired brother of Christine (Bill) Bunn, Joan (Rick) Reed as well as his niece, nephews, great niece and nephew. Adored son in law of Jean (late Kenneth) Nuttall.

John fought Parkinson’s with grace and dignity for over 25 years, but the Covid-19 was just too much for him.

John’s career spanned over every division of government including Local, Provincial, Federal and finally the job he loved as Executive Director of Business Development for Halton Region.

He will be forever remembered in the hearts of his family, and friends for his strength and determination. He enjoyed life to the fullest doing the things he loved the most, spending time with family and friends, fishing, enjoying good food and travelling.

He will be remembered for his great smile, quirky wit, being constantly reminded to pull up his pants, and being a true gentleman but most of all for being an amazing husband, father and friend.

In lieu of flowers please make a donation to a charity of your choice.

A celebration of life to follow at a later date.

The years go by so quickly but the memories will last forever. We had some great times golfing, fishing, playing bridge and just enjoying each other at the cottage. You were such a fighter and never complained. You are at peace now. John was such a proud person and kept to himself in his final years as his health worsened. We miss you John and will share a toast at our next dinner party with Daisy.

Dearest Daisy and Jenn,
We have many fond memories of John from the last 35 years or so. John was such a gentle person, never had a bad thing to say about anyone. He loved his sweets and could not pass them up! John loved being up at the cottage, fishing off the island and getting the knots out of his fishing line. John handled his Parkinson’s diagnosis and progression without a complaint. We will miss him, but we know he is at peace now. His last few years have been rough, but he took everything in stride. Daisy and Jenn, you have so many wonderful memories of this wonderful man, John Ayling.
You are in our hearts and thoughts.
Mickey and Mary Bailey

Daisy and Jenn,
You are all in our thoughts and hearts. I have so many wonderful memories of John - Sunday football and hockey games with my Dad and all of the great times our families have shared. Always smiling and ready for a good laugh - a big kid at heart. It was an honour for Paul and I to have him speak at our wedding. Looking forward to being able to give you both a big hug in person.
Love, Erin, Paul, Clare and Paige xoxox
