McAughey; John "Jack" Andrew
It is with a heavy heart that we announce the passing of Jack McAughey,  on May 16th, 2023, in his 82nd year.
Jack is survived by his beloved wife and best friend of 61 years, Lois, and his deeply loved family - his son Jim, daughter-in-law Sandra, and his two grandchildren, Emily, and Sam. He cherished his sisters Mabel (Glen) and Joyce, and all his nieces and nephews.
Jack was a well-respected Toronto businessman and entrepreneur. He had partnered with Roger Shorey in 1971 to join Standard Mechanical Systems Limited. The two partners established a highly successful mechanical services and construction business, which now operates in 35 service offices across Canada.
Jack loved his weekends on the farm and had a passion for Polled Hereford cattle. Medonte Highlands Polled Herefords has grown into one of the top purebred breeding operations in North America.
In all of Jack’s business and personal endeavours, he was led by his strong moral compass. A dear friend described Jack as the most honest and ethical man he had ever known.
A very sincere thank you to his healthcare team Sherri, Jill and Sara, who cared for Jack throughout the years. The family is so appreciative of your expertise and loving touch.   A tribute to Jack’s life will take place at Mundell’s Funeral Home in Orillia at 11am on Tuesday, May 23rd.    For those unable attend Jack's Celebration, you may click on the following link and register your device to watch via Livestream.
