Obituary

Retired Director RCCDSB
Former Executive Director of OCSTA and CCSTA
Peacefully at home, surrounded by the love of his family, faith and music on Thursday, July 23, 2020 at the age of 74 years. John Stunt of Pembroke, beloved husband of Marnie (nee Chisholm). Loved and cherished father of Meghan Rogers (Johnny), Andrew Stunt (Simone Keane), Elizabeth Stunt (Seán Stephens) and Katherine Brohart (Michael). Loving grandfather of Johnny, Molly, Emma, Sam, John Joseph and Elizabeth. Dear brother of Paul (Julia), Bill (Renata), Steve, Dean (Alison) and the late Howie Stunt. Son of the late Jack and Helen (nee Kelly) Stunt. John will be fondly remembered by his many nieces and nephews, friends and colleagues.

A native of St. Catharines, Ontario, John served as a teacher and principal at a number of Niagara area schools before relocating to the Ottawa Valley in 1981 to accept the position of Superintendent of Education at the Renfrew County Catholic District School Board. He was appointed Director of Education in 1989, a position he held for eleven years. He modelled servant leadership and was integral in the development of the board’s vision statement; a legacy that continues to inspire Catholic educators today.

He then held the position of Executive Director for the Ontario Catholic School Trustees’ Association (OCSTA) from 2001 - 2010. While John was honoured with many distinguished achievements, it was during this time he received the prestigious B.E. Nelligan award for exemplifying the noblest qualities of leadership in Catholic education. John completed his career as the Executive Director of the Canadian Catholic School Trustees’ Association (CCSTA) from 2011-2015.

John answered the call to serve on a number of boards, including nine years with the Ontario Catholic Health Sponsors of Ontario and most recently, he was proud to be appointed vice-chair of the Pembroke Regional Hospital Board.

In both his professional and personal life, John modelled “warmth, hospitality, good humour, and joy” acting as a valued mentor and friend to many. John was a lifelong learner, avid reader, music lover and sports fan. His actions in life were rooted in his unwavering faith and reflected his spirituality and moral compass. John’s steadfast love for his family and his wife of 48 years will continue to be his greatest legacy.

Friends are invited to share their memories of John with his family during visitation at the MURPHY FUNERAL HOME, 296 Isabella Street, Pembroke on Thursday July 30th, from 3–7 p.m. A Funeral Mass will be celebrated on Friday July 31st at 11:00 a.m. in St. Columbkille’s Cathedral, Pembroke.

Words cannot express the sadness I feel about John's death. A person like John can never be forgotten. He brought so many gifts and left a large imprint of his footsteps in the field of education. His work ethic, his kind and caring spirit are but a few of the many ways in which he made each day a little brighter. I admired his quick wit. His love of family was always uppermost in his life. I feel blessed to have known him. He taught me so much! May your hearts And souls find peace and comfort. Peace, prayers, and blessings
