It is with heavy hearts, that the family of Cecil Claude Hartford announces his passing. Cecil passed peacefully at Glen Hill Strathaven on October 17, 2020 at the age of 87. Cecil leaves behind his beloved wife of 51 years, Ruth Hartford (nee: Saunders). Cherished Father to Douglas (Frances), Alan (Jennifer) and David (Tammy) Hartford. Treasured Grandfather to Alec, Theo, Jumah, Matthew and Liam. Cecil leaves behind an extensive family of brothers and sisters (Leo, Rupert, Al, Bill, Lowell, Eunice, Jake, Mary, Maddie). Cecil is pre-deceased by his brothers Tim and Doug, sister Lenna and nephew David.

Cecil will forever be remembered for his loyalty and love of his family, his dedication and work ethic as a hydro lineman for 40 years and his simple pleasures in life. Nothing gave him more joy than to be surrounded by those he loved and respected. The family wishes to thank the staff at Glen Hill Strathaven for their care and kindness to Cecil.

A visitation will be held at the Morris Funeral Chapel on Friday, October 23, 2020 from 10:00am to 12:00pm. Due to the circumstances surrounding the COVID-19 pandemic, those in attendance will be required to wear face coverings at all times, as well as provide their name and phone number to the funeral home. A private family service will be held at 1:00pm. In keeping with Cecil’s personality, the family welcomes anyone in attendance to please dress comfortably and casually. In lieu of flowers, donations to the Heart and Stroke Foundation or the Alzheimer’s Society of Canada would be greatly appreciated.

Dear Ruth and Family- We are so sorry that Cec has passed away. Our memories of him are so very fond.. He was a true gentleman and so friendly. His garden produce was superb especially his cantaloupe. He sure loved his crossword puzzles. We wish all of you much strength and may the love of your family help you through this difficult time. Most sincerely, Dennis and Emily
