Obituary of John Edward Tollar
It is with extremely heavy hearts we announce the passing of John Edward Tollar on Friday, April 15, 2022 at The Greater Niagara General Hospital at the age of 67. He leaves behind his sisters Isobel Shelton, Margaret Jones and Kathy Campisano, his many nieces and nephews and his long time friend Leslie Smith.
John enjoyed many years of employment at The Maid of the Mist. He was a maintenance man and doubled as a security guard. He was a very tall man and could look very intimidating, but he was a giant teddy bear. He loved to play cribbage and was a member of the Hanks Own Cribbage League for many years. He had also won numerous trophies for his excellent skill in playing darts at one of the many locations, the Chippawa House. John loved people and loved to joke. He was a social butterfly with the kindest heart. You could find John, everyday, driving his scooter to the Tim Hortons on MacLeod Road in Niagara Falls to get his large four by four and well toasted bacon biscuit. He was always up for a coffee and a chat. He will be terribly missed by all who had the pleasure of knowing him.
In keeping with John's wishes, cremation has taken place. Arrangements have been entrusted to Essentials Cremation and Burial Services (905 354 2133) A Celebration of John's Life will be held at a date in the near future. Please bring a memory to share! If desired, donations in John's memory can be made to The Walker Family Cancer Centre and would be appreciated by his family.
There are no upcoming public services scheduled or the service has occurred in the past.
