    Sydney and family, My prayers go out to you and your family for the loss of your husband and father. I have many fond memories of Con coming to the bank and chatting with me. Then every once and awhile an envelope would come with many printed jokes in it..(I just found one the other day).Con was a great man and really was one of my favourite customers. I am sure he will be missed by everyone.

  8. Sydney and family please accept my condolences on Con’s passing. He was a joy and a great guy and one of the “old group” of oil scouts. I will be out of town for the celebration of life but will be thinking of all the good times spent with Con and the Texaco crowd. May he rest in peace.

  11. To Mrs. McGinnis, Ken and family. So sorry to hear of Con’s passing. I still remember him as one of the best sports Dads in the neighborhood. Always made me laugh, the funniest memory was him driving Ken and I to an early morning hockey practice. We saw an unfortunate paperboy with all his papers loaded up on his bike and witnessed the wipeout and the papers scattering all over. Con pulled over immediately rolled the window down and offered the paperboy his help. That help was ” pick ’em up kid” , and he then drove away, I remember my laughter did not stop all the way to the rink. Funny funny man and fiercely loyal to his family and friends. He will be missed by everyone who knew him.

    Although I haven’t been in contact in the last few years due to cancer in the family I
    sure thought of Con.

    Please accept my sympathies Danny

    Sydney and family,
    We are so saddened to hear of Con’s death. Ron and I would run into him from time to time at church and he never failed to catch up with us and ask about the well being of the family. My memories go back much farther when both families helped out at the hockey rink and the community association. Mom is not well herself but I know she would want you to know how she treasured your friendship over the years.
