Posted on Thursday September 20, 2018
It is with great sadness and heavy hearts that the Township of South Glengarry has lost a longtime Volunteer Firefighter and retired employee. John Hugh Munro passed away unexpectedly on September 19, 2018.
 
John Hugh has been a Volunteer Firefighter with the South Glengarry Fire Service for 34 years out of the Williamstown Station. Following his retirement from Kraft, John Hugh joined the Township’s Roads Department, where he worked for 10 years until his recent retirement this summer.
 
“Our Department is brokenhearted,” stated Fire Chief Dave Robertson, “John Hugh was not only a dedicated member of our Fire Service, but also an avid community volunteer and dear friend to many. He will be missed by the Department and community.”
 
“On behalf of Council and all Township employees, I extend our deepest condolences to John Hugh’s family,” stated Mayor Ian McLeod, “We have lost a valued friend and colleague. Our community is a better place because of his many contributions and he will be sorely missed.”
 
All Township flags have been lowered to half-mast today in John Hugh’s honour.
