John Leonard MacDonald

Born In: Mount Stewart, Prince Edward Island, Canada
Born: July 20th, 1935

Passed in: Toronto, Ontario, Canada
Passed on: April 26th, 2019

On April 26, 2019, Leonard died in Toronto at the age of 83. He was the youngest of the ten children of Jack Pius and Jeanette MacDonald of Mount Stewart, Prince Edward Island. As a young man, Leonard came to Toronto where he worked at the Toronto Star until he retired. Fiercely independent, firm in his beliefs, well read, and fully engaged in current events, Leonard did what he wanted, which included summers in PEI, trout fishing in his secret spots, very long walks, playing cards, feeding foxes, and weekly trips to the St. Lawrence Market. Leonard is remembered dearly by Eileen Gillis of Charlottetown, the last surviving sibling of their family, and his many nieces and nephews and their families. His other siblings, now deceased, were Pius, Helen Driscoll, Boyd, Howard, Marion McLaughlin, Ronald (“Foncie”), Charles, and Estelle Fisher. There will be a celebration of Leonard’s life in Prince Edward Island later this summer. He will be buried with his family, the MacDonalds of Allisary, at St. Andrew’s Cemetery in PEI. In lieu of flowers, donations can be made to the Friends of St. Andrew’s Chapel (PO Box 1864, Charlottetown, PEI, C1A7N5) or the charity of your choice.
