<div itemprop="description">PRENDERGAST, John Patrick <br>Peacefully on November 21, 2016 in Burlington, ON. Survived by daughters Susan (John Avis) and Martha (Mark Welch) and granddaughter Lindsay. Predeceased by his wife of 62 years, Carol, parents Joseph and Nora, sister Katherine and son Bill. Dad always responded to the plea “Daddy” and was quick to come to the aid of his children with a shoulder to lean on, a drive to the hockey game or loan on next week’s allowance. Dad was often described as a “true gentlemen”, a kind and honest man who loved to sit and chat with strangers and listen to their stories. He loved to reminisce about his school days in Montréal and was blessed with lifelong friends Paul and Alan who helped to make the stories even grander! His career in the transportation industry working for Hercules Canada, Provost and Matlack brought him great satisfaction. Retirement provided great pleasure by driving around the Niagara escarpment with Carol, enjoying picnics by the lake, playing golf and spending time with Granddaughter Lindsay. We would like to thank the Crown Derby staff of Billings Court Manor for the love, care and kindness they extended to dad and the family. Dad always said “they take good care of me here” and indeed they did. Cremation and private burial have taken place. Donations to The Salvation Army of Burlington would be appreciated. <br> <br> <br></div>
