In lasting memory of Herman Jardine who passed away peacefully at the age of 90 in Toronto, Ontario.
Herman is predeceased by his parents Mary (Menezes) Jardine and John Francis Jardine, and by his brothers John and Joseph Jardine. He remained a faithful and loving husband to his wife Mary Jardine until her passing in 1995 and subsequently to wife Zobeeda Jardine until her passing in 2009. Loving father to Rhys Jardine, father-in-law to Gail Jardine and grandfather to Ryan and Kevin Jardine.
Born and raised in British Guiana, South America, he left as a young man to work on cargo ships that took him to many different areas of the world. He eventually came to Canada and graduated from Ryerson Polytechnic Institute in 1967, establishing a career as an information management specialist at Ontario Hydro until retiring in 1987.
He enjoyed spending time with family and simple things in life, such as working around the home and garden, until facing increasingly complicated health issues over the past decade. Like everything else in life, he handled the health challenges put before him with strength and perseverance.
May his soul rest in peace.
