TRAYNOR, John Bernard


Peacefully at the Sault Area Hospital on Thursday, January 23, 2020 at the age of 77.

Son of the late Joseph Francis and Reta Gwendolyn Traynor (nee Wilding), Brother of Veronica Nyman (late Carl), late James Vincent Traynor, late Joseph Francis Traynor and the late Rita DeGasparro. Uncle Bernie to Lisa Langille (Chester), James A. DeGasparro (Sheila), Mark Nyman, Eva Nyman (Ilius Cagiannos), Eric Nyman (Sarah), Christa Nyman (Naval Agarwaal), Kyna Traynor and Melissa Traynor.

We all hold dear the fondest memories of time spent with our uncle Bernie at Havilland Bay, playing his guitar, singing and taking part in everything that the outdoors had to offer. He could light up a room with his personality, was quite a jokester and was always willing to lend a helping hand. He will be deeply missed by family, friends and all that knew him.

Special thanks to the staff at the SAH for the wonderful care that Bernie received.

Friends may visit the Arthur Funeral Home – Barton & Kiteley Chapel (492 Wellington Street E. 705-759-2522) on Tuesday, January 28, 2020 from 1:30 pm until 2:30 pm. Interment Holy Sepulchre Cemetery.
