Robert Gracey

Robert Gracey It is with great sadness we announce the passing of Robert (Bob) Gracey, a long time member of St. John's.

OBITUARY
On Saturday, March 23, 2019, Robert (Bob) Gracey, loving husband, father, grandfather and great grandfather, passed away at age 89. Bob was born on October 29, 1929, in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania to Robert and Hilda Gracey of Northern Ireland. He married Alywn Jones and they were very proud to have two sons, Mike and Terry. Bob had a life long passion for music; playing the trumpet, the piano and the accordion. He entertained at dances, weddings, scouting events, school events and at the church. In more recent years he played for seniors at the hospital. He was an entertainer at heart, whether music or storytelling he was his happiest interacting with people. Bob was a master cabinet maker, learning these skills from his father in Northern Ireland. He loved to design and build and enjoyed special requests that required he use all of his skills to design and create. Bob’s Irish charm was evident in his quick wit, infectious smile, and hearty laugh. He will be remembered for his kind and compassionate spirit. Bob was predeceased by his wife Alwyn, his parents and his brother Raymond and sister Valerie. He is survived by his son Mike (Joyce) and his son Terry (Miriam). He was blessed with grandchildren Christina, Joshua, Emily (Blaise), Elliott (Kathryn), Erin and Evan. He also has two great-grandchildren, Abilene and Sophie. Public visitation is from 6 – 9 pm on Tuesday, March 26, 2019 at McKersie-Kocher Funeral Home, 114 Main Street E., 905-878-4452, Milton, ON L9T 1N5. As per Bob’s wishes, there will be a private family funeral on Wednesday. The family will host a celebration of life at a later date. As expressions of sympathy, memorial donations in memory of Bob to the Milton District Auxiliary would be appreciated by the family.

Giving With Grace

Five years ago the Anglican Diocese of Niagara launched "Hands Across Niagara", a shared annual appeal with the Anglican Church of Canada. Since its inception many creative justice and servant ministry initiatives have been supported at all levels of our church through the incredible generosity of Anglicans in Niagara.
Going forward, we have made the decision to channel the resources of "Hands Across Niagara" towards the national church’s annual appeal called "Giving with Grace", formerly known as the Anglican Appeal. We do so for an important reason: the "Anglican Healing Fund" is coming to the end of the resources generously provided for its work. In response "Giving with Grace" seeks to replenish its funds to help us continue to foster community-based healing projects.
The Bishop and Primate invite you to redirect your Hands Across Niagara contribution to this important Giving with Grace annual appeal.
Learn more about "Giving with Grace" here.
