LOCKHART: E. Earl of Toronto Formerly of MacTier

Posted by on May 31, 2017


E. (Elmer) Earl Lockhart (who always went by his middle name) passed away on Sunday, January 8, 2017 in his city of residence, Toronto, Ontario. He was 86, just two weeks shy of his 87th birthday.

He passed in his sleep of sudden cardiac arrest after a prolonged period of illness due to diabetes, Alzheimer’s/dementia and congestive heart failure.

Mr. Lockhart is survived by his wife of close to 60 years Helen Lockhart (nee O’Connell) of Toronto, his daughter Laurie Lockhart of Toronto, his son Joseph Lockhart of Guelph, ON, four Lockhart grandchildren, Nathaniel (Toronto), Evan (Powell River, BC), Claire and Connor (Kitchener, ON), five brothers (all in Ontario), Bob of Ajax, Arnold of Bowmanville, Connie of Oshawa, Brian of Renfrew and Tim of Spanish and four sisters (all in Ontario), Doreen (Mrs. Russell Johnston) of Pickering, Joyce (Mrs. Albert Chisholm) of Chelmsford, Colleen (Mrs. Glen Tait) of Cannington and Heather (Mrs. James Mahon) of MacTier. He was predeceased by sister Linda (Mrs. James Mahon) of MacTier on July 30, 2011, and three infant brothers, Freddie in November 1929, Ronnie in September 1933 and baby boy in 1946 (whose new ground marker, acknowledging all three children titled LOCKHART, was commissioned and put in place by Earl in Foot’s Bay Cemetery in Ontario in 2008).

Earl Lockhart was born on January 21, 1930 in MacTier, Ontario, Canada. He was the oldest child of hard working parents Joseph Samuel Lockhart and Eliza Gertrude Lockhart (nee Watkinson). His father was an engineer for Canadian Pacific Railway (CPR) and his mother was a homemaker and postal carrier, both working out of MacTier.

Mr. Lockhart struck out on his own (as to spare his parents of another mouth to feed) at an early age, first going to live with his Aunt Ruby Cochrane (on his father’s side) in the east end of Toronto.
He eventually met Helen and they were married on November 16, 1957 in Toronto, and in 1961 they settled and raised their family in a house in the area of Toronto called Weston (where they lived until his passing and where Helen still lives today).

He worked hard and provided for his family by working at Canadian National Railway (CN) until he took an early retirement in September 1989 (he worked at CN since November 1951). Through the years he was active in many additional pursuits such as, since 1957, serving in the Canadian Army reserves (headquartered out of Toronto’s Denison Armoury at 3621 Dufferin Street, north of Highway 401) for 28 years (receiving rank of Warrant Officer, CD) and was a continuous member of the Royal Canadian Legion for 53 years (receiving his 50-year pin in September 2015). He also took an interest in auctioneering (earning a certificate) and of course boating (was a member of the power squadron).

His love for his native Muskoka however, never left him (MacTier was always called “up home”), and his Irish ancestry was a source of pride and the reason why in his retirement he spent every spring and summer in his beloved community of Severn Bridge (just south of Gravenhurst), Ontario. This is the area where his great-grandfather Joseph Lockhart lived in when he emigrated to Canada from Ireland (1850s) and where you can find his great-grandfather’s gravestone today in Symington Cemetery on Highway 11 at Kilworthy Road, Severn Bridge.

There will be a memorial service for Earl Lockhart on Saturday, June 3, 2017 at 11:00 a.m. at Trinity United Church in Gravenhurst, Ontario. Later in June, as per Earl’s wishes, there will be a private interment of his ashes in Symington Cemetery in the grave of his Irish great-grandfather.

Peter’s life ended peacefully in his 77th year at The Royal Gardens in Peterborough on August 6th, 2016. Beloved brother of Bill (Sandra) of Oakville.

Peter was born and educated in London, Ontario and at Trinity College School, Port Hope. He held management positions with various trust and investments companies in Toronto, London, and Chatham, and then became a banker in Bermuda. This period was a very fulfilling time for Peter. He became an enthusiastic scuba diver, cyclist and sailor. His scuba colleagues became life long friends, with regular reunions held in any of three countries. He retired to his self designed home in Woodview (Stoney Lake) where he honed his skills as a wood carver and furniture builder. His creations are exquisite. Peter micro-managed the Community Road Association. He strolled ‘The Road’ everyday with his adored canine companion “Pieja” and regular road pals. They would hold endless discussions on nature, politics, the road care and maintenance, new cottages being built and settled all International issues, over and over again. Peter loved the four seasons and the opportunities to observe native animals, birds and water fowl in their seasonal habitats. Always a gentleman with a quiet subtle sense of humor, he will be missed by many friends and family. Out family wishes to thank Dr. Natalie Whiting and the dedicated nursing and support personnel on the 3rd floor at The Royal Gardens for their compassionate care.
