elevated YbhfQ It is with heavy hearts that we announce the passing of James Heffernan at Michael Garron Hospital on September 20, 2022 at the age of 97. James passed peacefully surrounded by loved ones. He was the youngest and last surviving member of 10 siblings. He is survived by the love of his life, Frances, (nee Hayes), his wife of 73 years. Jim will be fondly remembered by their children Larry (Louise), Mike (Anita), Rick (Helena), Joan, and Linda (Kelly), as well as grandchildren Noel, Danielle (James), Peter, Kevin (Nicole), David (Nadia), and great-grandchild Mathew. Fiercely independent, James lived at home with Frances until the last two days of his life. James enlisted in the Airforce during WWII, later transferring to the regular army where he was in boot camp at the end of the war. Following the war, Jim gave decades of loyal service to the Toronto Transit Commission and upon retiring, he and Frances enjoyed travelling throughout North America as well as spending quality time with their children at the family cottage. The visitation, funeral mass, and reception will all take place at Holy Cross Catholic Funeral Home on Monday, September 26, (entrance at 211 Langstaff Road East). Visitation will begin at 10 am.
