Remembering Francis Wheildon

From: Lyle and Donna Thompson

Francis was a wonderful man. I enjoyed my time spent with Francis and Brad, talking Cardinal and Blue Jays baseball. Loved playing ball for coach Francis. We had a lot of laughs.

From: Jennifer Mackey

So sorry to hear of Francis passing. I have many fond memories of music in our kitchen, laughter and fun. His love of baseball was clear when Scott joined the Chatsworth cardinals! Our deepest sympathy Mary Lou and Tom

Tom, Janet, Mary Lou and families, Sad to hear of your dad's passing. I enjoyed getting to know Francis and his lovely wife Aileen. Now they are together. Francis was very talented and always a gentleman. My sincere condolences, Paula Gurney

From: The Comber Family

Sad to hear, but what a life he lived! He was such a great friend, neighbour, and craftsman! When I graduated from grade 8 he asked me if I would like a summer job, and I spent most of that summer working on the buildings mentioned. It was my first real paying job, and he was such a gentleman to work for. Many good memories. Our condolences to the family.

From: Bill Walker
Dear Tom & Janet, Mary Lou and families, May it help to know friends are thinking of you. I will always have fond memories of Francis coaching Chatsworth fastball against me when I played for Clavering Miller Farms and/or the Thomas Norris Busmen. He was always a first class gentleman and it was a pleasure to joke with him from 3rd base as he was in the coaches box trying to distract me and get me to stop talking, lol   You played the game of life long and well Mr. Wheildon! May fond memories provide you comfort and strength, now and in future.
With Sincere Condolence, Bill Walker #16

From: Wayne & Dee Hatten

Our most sincere condolences on the passing of a Chatsworth icon. Our deepest sympathy to Mary Lou, Tom & Janet. I felt that many parts of my life seemed to cross paths with Francis. From my early years, whether it was at St. Paul's Anglican Church, or the thousands of encounters through our mutual connection to the construction industry. It was an honour to have had so much affiliation with Francis.
