John Harrison Hough passed away peacefully after a courageous battle with pancreatic cancer on May 17th at Hospice Georgian Triangle, Campbell House in Collingwood. He was lovingly supported by friends and with family at the end. He is survived and loved by his wife Susan (McKenzie), daughters Jennifer Pappagallo (Marco Papagallo), Tricia Hough (Chris Edwards), grandchildren Olivia, Isabella, Gianluca, Charlie and William, stepsons Joe (Gill), Scott (Jacklyn) and Matt McKenzie, step grandchildren Alexandra, Cole, Parker and Charlie, brother Paul Hough (Nancy) and sister in law Rose Sloan. He was predeceased by his parents Elizabeth and Jack Hough and first wife Frances Hough with whom he spent 44 happy years.

John attended St. Andrew’s College in Aurora Ontario where he loved football and the pipes. He was a distinguished lawyer and spent his entire career at Faskens on Bay St. where he is remembered by his many colleagues. He spent his winters skiing fast at Devil’s Glen and summers golfing at Mad River to varying degrees of success.

A celebration will be held in Houghie’s honor at Devil’s Glen Country Club on June 8th from 3 to 6 p.m.

The family thanks everyone who cared for him over the last two years and especially Dr. Mark Quigg. In lieu of flowers, please consider donations to Collingwood General & Marine Hospital and Hospice Georgian Triangle.

I am John's cousin on his mother's side and while I haven't seen him in a few decades, we have corresponded a occasionally in the past few years especially regarding my genealogy project . John was quite a bit older than I and as such I didn't know him well but I do have some fond memories of him, such as driving our cousin Peter and I north to Haileybury for Christmas in our Aunt Helen's car when I was perhaps 4 .
