It is with great sorrow that we announce the passing of Jon Finnigan. Surrounded by his loving family, Jon passed away peacefully in Toronto, on Tuesday, November 10th, 2020 after a short battle with terminal cancer. He will be sadly missed by his loving wife Jennifer Marinangeli. Jon was a loving father to his son Christopher and his wife Robyn and a cherished grandfather ("Gramps") to their children Devyn and Quinnlan. He was also a wonderful stepfather to Rachel and her husband Lehel.
Loving son of the late Albert Finnigan and the late Hildegard Meincke. Predeceased by his beloved brother the late Patrick Finnigan. He will be missed by his sister Tracy and her husband Colin (Geitzler), his sister-in-law Cathy (Finnigan), his niece Ashleigh and nephews Ryan, Michael, Robert, Marc and their families.
Jon grew up in a small lakefront community that became his first love, Crystal Beach, Ontario. His family moved to Ottawa during his teen years where he developed and maintained many friendships. Later on Jon met Jennifer in Toronto and moved there where he has spent the last 25 years.
Jon had many careers and interests throughout his life. He was an accomplished drummer and sound engineer in the Ottawa music scene from the seventies to the early nineties. Jon was an excellent carpenter leaving behind many decks - fences and other projects he built in southern Ontario over the years. He also became a high-end audio consultant while at the same time being a seasonal groundskeeper at some of Toronto's best golf courses. He loved animals - music - golf - baseball - hockey - travelling - skating on the Ottawa Canal - classic films - Seinfeld and a good cup of coffee. Jon left us much too soon - he will be greatly missed by his family, friends and colleagues.
A private family service has been held at Turner & Porter.
