Obituary for John Hamilton Rintoul

Rintoul, John Hamilton
It is with great sadness that we announce the very sudden passing of John on Friday, October 23, 2020 at the age of 67. John was the beloved husband of Sylvia Glazer of Cobourg. He will be forever missed by his daughters Laurie, Robin and Suzanne (Dan) and brothers David and Robert. John was a proud grandpa to Michaela, Delaney, Charlotte, Tristan, Nora, and James. He is predeceased by his parents Arthur and Evelyn Rintoul.
John will be remembered as a fun-loving and generous man who always saw the lighter side of life and could bring good humour to any occasion. He was a lover of the outdoors, and an avid camper and fisherman. After a long career with Ontario Power Generation, John was enjoying his retirement. He was respected and loved by his family, friends, and coworkers.
Cremation has taken place, and due to COVID restrictions, the family will hold a Private Funeral Service at Dods & McNair Funeral Home, Chapel & Reception Centre, 21 First St., Orangeville. Webcast of the Service will be available at 2:00 p.m. on Sunday, November 1, 2020.
Face coverings must be worn during all events in the funeral home.
In lieu of flowers, friends planning an expression of remembrance are asked to consider St. Michael’s Hospital Foundation and the Northumberland Humane Society.
A tree will be planted in memory of John in the Dods & McNair Memorial Forest at the Island Lake Conservation Area, Orangeville. The next annual dedication service will be held on Sunday, September 12, 2021 at 2:30 p.m. Condolences may be offered to the family at

Harvey and I were saddened to hear of John's passing. He brought many happy memories and laughter to the Rintoul Reunions. John had a great sense of humour and loved sharing time with others. Know that you are all in our thoughts and that we care. Ree & Harvey Rintoul

I worked with John on shift at Bruce A. With his wit and sense of humour he was always a pleasure to work with. Gone way too soon.

My thoughts and heart are with the Family. John was a co-worker and a friend His laughter and smile made training a joy. His friendship and conversation made life so much brighter. When I look up, I will think of you John.

Our sincerest condolences for the Rintoul family. John's humorous outlook on life and cheerful disposition will be missed. John was one of the key trainers who trained and qualified myself at Darlington when I transferred from Pickering, his training sessions were always enjoyable and full of great information. Later, when I became a trainer myself, Joh was a huge help in creating training video's and helping me go after more detail oriented training. John was an incredible person and instructor who truly loved helping others. Rest easy John, till we meet again.
