Obituary of Bill Tolton

William (Tub) Wilson Tolton On Saturday June 1st, 2019 at Chartwell Wedgewood Retirement Residence Brockville, Ontario.  Born October 12, 1930 in Guelph, Ontario.  Son of the late Wilfred David Tolton and Viola Olga Wilson.  Predeceased by his wife of 62 years, Ruth Anne Thompson.  Father to David (Heather), Lesley and Christopher.  Proud grandfather of Benjamin (Victoria) Tolton, Matthew (Kate) Tolton and Cameron Tolton. Bill grew up in the Guelph area with a strong background in agriculture and machines.  After earning his Bachelor of Science in Agriculture (Agricultural Engineering) from the Ontario Agricultural College (OAC ‘53) he worked with Cockshutt and Caterpillar before establishing a Massey Ferguson dealership, Tolton Equipment Ltd, in Barrie, Ontario.  In 1967 he and his family moved to Front of Yonge Township (Eastern Ontario) to enjoy the 1000 Islands.  He obtained a Teaching Certificate and many Brockvillians will recall him teaching science for many years at Brockville Collegiate Institute.  Outside of work and family, Bill had a variety of interests that included skiing, sail and power boating, auto restoration and financial investments.  He and Ruth Anne also kept busy with numerous volunteer organizations such as Meals on Wheels and Impact Residential Services.  They were also big fans of travelling the world on their own and with friends.  For many years they spent time each winter in their beloved Kauai.  His great sense of humor and quick mind will be sadly missed and we trust that he has moved on to a place filled with joy and comfort.

Visitation will be at Barclay Funeral Home, 137 Pearl St. East, Brockville on Sunday June 16, 2019 from 2:00 to 4:00 and 7:00 to 9:00pm.  A funeral service will be held at 11:00 am on Monday June 17, 2019 at St. Lawrence Anglican Church, 80 Pine St. in Brockville.  In lieu of flowers, donations to the Brockville and District Hospital Foundation or The Lung Association would be appreciated.  Messages of condolence may be sent on line at www.barclayfuneralhome.com
