John Barton Findlay: September 24, 1956 – April 12, 2021
It is with great sadness that after a short, hard & courageous battle with cancer/covid 19, John passed away April 12, 2021, at Michael Garron Hospital in Toronto at the age of 64. John is survived by loved wife Michele, loving son Nicholas of Toronto, & sister Terry Anne Findlay of Peterborough. Predeceased by parents Don & Eileen Findlay. John was born in Peterborough & lived in Bridgenorth until he finished high school & college in Peterborough. He then moved to Toronto & worked at CBC for 35 plus years until his retirement. For years he enjoyed weekends & holidays with the family at their cottage at Jack Lake in Apsley. There are no words to express how much he will be missed by family, friends, and his shadow Tank. If so desired memorial donations can be made to the Cancer Society and online condolences may be left at

John has been our neighbor for over 30 years in Toronto. He was quiet, minded his own business, but friendly. He always had a hello and a wave. My son Michael would reach out to him about the lawn mower or car advise and he always helped him out. Michael would come in and say "that John is so nice".
We are very saddened to hear this news. Our deepest sympathies to the whole family.

Lynn & Michael

I was so shocked and saddened to hear this news about John. For as long as I have been part of the CBC family it seems he was there. Helpful, reliable, quiet in an industry that too often confuses that with nothing to contribute. John had plenty to contribute, and did. time after time after time. There is not one of us who worked with him over the years who did not benefit from his experience and his kind touch. He made each of us better and he will be sorely missed. My condolences to his family.

John was a real pro. Always keen to get the best shot,
to do that little bit extra to make everyone look good.
It was a pleasure to know and work with him, sad that
he is gone so soon. Sincere condolences.
RIP. Mike Duffy
