Passed away peacefully at Groves Memorial Hospital in his 83rd year. He leaves behind Margaret, his loving wife of almost 63 years, as well as his children Graham (Anita), Caroline, Paul “Moose”, Anthony “Snoop”, and Michael (Joanne). Also mourning their loss are 11 grandchildren and 10 great grandchildren. John was born in England and raised on a farm in Gloucestershire County. As a newlywed in 1958, he emigrated from England to Elora, where he continued in the farming business for the rest of his life. He was an enthusiastic skydiver and in his younger days had over 200 parachute jumps to his record. He found great enjoyment in playing a match of squash or tennis, but nothing gave him more joy than to watch his children and grandchildren playing sports at many different arenas and sports fields throughout Ontario. There will be a private family service held with his casket, which is being buried at the Elora Municipal Cemetery. A celebration of John’s life will be held later in the spring.
Arrangements are entrusted to The Graham A. Giddy Funeral Home, 37 Church Street East in Elora. As an expression of sympathy, the family would appreciate donations being directed towards the Kidney Foundation of Canada. (519)846-5352

Dear Margaret,
I (John Sealey), have only recently received an email from my son Adam who lives in Sydney, Australia, informing me of the sad loss of John. It is lovely to hear a little about our extended family!
My daughter Jane has kindly assembled a set of photos of the Somerset side of the Sealey family, the Farm being Redlands.
The older folk are (from left to right): George Sealey, Philip Sealey, John Sealey (me), and Hannah Sealey (George Sealey's daughter).
The younger folk are (from left to right): Jane O'Gorman (my eldest daughter), Kate Chambers (my youngest daughter), and Adam Sealey.
John does remind me of my other brother Michael who died in December 2015!
All our best wishes,
John Sealey and Family
(Appletrees, Long Street, Galhampton, Somerset)

Our sincere sympathies go out to Margaret and to the Sealey family at this time of loss, following their committed care of John through stern health challenges.
John is fondly remembered by my family. Together with Snoop, John and Margaret's home has been a welcome oasis from urban life - in particular for 'Buzz' and Alan; my Dad and brother. Far ranging conversation, home baking and HNIC enlivened these occasions since the 1970's. That my brother has been celebrated and valued unreservedly by John, Margaret and Snoop has been a wonderful gift - seeing well beyond his developmental disability.
We long have appreciated and benefitted from John's generosity of spirit and action. For example, we won't forget how we counted on him to blow out and guide us up our country lane, no matter the strength of winter storm or time of day - a great friend to all of the Neal family - Godspeed John!

With Love, David Neal, Leanne Styles and Family
