C Ward Hargreaves

August 22, 1944 ~ May 21, 2021

It is with profound sadness and broken hearts that we announce the sudden passing of C. Ward Hargreaves, our beloved husband, father and poppa.
Ward is survived by his loving wife of 51 years Judy (Merrett); his daughter, Kori, son-in-law Mike Guglietti; his son, Kyle, daughter-in-law Renée Francis. He was the very proud Poppa of Tyler, Breanna, and Marcus Guglietti.  He is loved by his two sisters-in-law Norma Hargreaves (Kingston, Ont.) and Sabrina Merrett (London, Ont.).  Ward was loved by his many nieces and nephews.  Ward was predeceased by his adoring parents Gordon and Violet (nee McCullough) Hargreaves, his loving brother Doug Hargreaves and brother-in-law Paul Merrett.

Ward was born in Sault Ste. Marie, Ont., where he began his banking career. He moved to Bolton in 1975 to open the Toronto Dominion Bank in the Bolton Country Market where he helped to build the Bolton community to where it is today.
He will be fondly remembered for his infectious laugh, wonderful sense of humour and caring heart; he was literally a huge teddy bear.

Our hearts are broken and anyone who had the pleasure to know him would understand what a loss this is; we will be forever sad.

Private funeral service will be held in the chapel of the Egan Funeral Home, 203 Queen Street S., Bolton (905-857-2213) on Wednesday morning, May 26 at 11 o’clock.

Donations in Ward’s memory can be made to the Heart and Stroke Foundation

Our deepest condolences to Judy and the entire family of our dear friend Ward. I have been blessed to have had the Hargreaves family and especially Ward involved in my life since high school. The time spent with them has been wonderful and fulfilling. When I think of Ward I will have tears for awhile but then I will always have a smile.
He could always get me laughing.
Love you all.

I am very sorry to hear the sad news about Ward. You couldn’t meet a nicer man or a nicer family. I have fond memories of your parent volunteer help at Ellwood Memorial P.S. You were always so cheerful and supportive of all the students.

Condolence from Bob Moore on May 22nd, 2021 8:15 pm

My sincere condolences to Ward’s family. I don’t know you but here’s a respectful reminiscence of Ward. I attended SCI and played basketball with him. In 1961 we represented our school in Galt Ontario with his brother Doug coaching us. When we entered the gym with Ward to play the championship game, the opposition literally gasped at our centre’s height. Nonetheless they killed us in that game. But to compensate for this humiliation, the car trip down and back was so memorable for all of our team, as it was led by Ward’s wonderful humour. It remains a trip I still recall whenever the 6O’s best music is played. He was truly a gentle giant and so respected at Sault Collegiate. One Friday night at a gym dance after a game, Ward introduced the newest dance to all the kids in the crowd, the “Twist”. He brought it North. You see, everyone of us make an impact on so many, an impact that family may never know. I wanted all of you to know he impacted my young life tremendously. I’m truly saddened for your loss. Bob Moore

Condolence from Janet McCormack on May 22nd, 2021 8:31 pm

Judy and Family,
Our condolences to you and your family. I travelled with Ward for 4 years to downtown Toronto. He always got our group of 4 guys into laughter and joking around and made the trip down and back go very fast. He will certainly be missed.

Condolence from Mona Borneman on May 23rd, 2021 3:39 pm

Judy, Kori and Kyle- I send my sincere condolences to you and your extended family. I did not know Ward well but through many conversations with Michael I be came to know him as a wonderful family man with a great sense of humour. You will miss him forever but
please know that he will always be with you, guiding and protecting you. Heaven has welcomed another beloved Angel.

Condolence from David E Coutts on May 23rd, 2021 5:34 pm

Judi, Kori, Kyle. and Ward’s extended family.
It was with profound sorrow that we received the news of Ward’s sudden passing, I enjoyed so much my “little” cousin on the all too few times, due at times to distance and then to busy professional and family lives, that we were able to get together. From early years he always seemed to be my “big” cousin. This was not just due to his size, which was impressive all right, but more so to the fullness of life and laughter and just plain kind huge presence he always presented.
Although he was my younger cousin, he would grant me no seniority, give me no unearned respect, and I enjoyed his humorous digs immensely. I tried to match his wit but there was really just no matching Ward’s humor nor his kindness.
We had really hoped post covid, that we could once again see Judy and Ward, unfortunately that will now not occur. I really needed after all this social; distancing, to have some one make fun of me again, like only he could. My five kids, who all remember him, and my two sisters and cousin Priscilla Sargent all express their own sympathies through me. to you all. Peace to you my cuz, you are family, and I give you the last word, even though we may not hear you. I am sure you are laughing.

Condolence from Anna Petrole on May 23rd, 2021 6:51 pm

Deepest Condolences to Judy and family. I worked for Mr Hargreaves at the TD Richview Square branch for many years. It was a wonderful time.

Condolence from Joanne Courneya on May 23rd, 2021 7:19 pm

Judy, Kori and Kyle so sorry to hear about Wards passing. My deepest sympathy to you all. He will be
With you always.

Condolence from Gay Littlefield Gartshore on May 23rd, 2021 8:06 pm

As friends from your past, our hearts go out to you, Judy. To lose both your brother and husband in a short amount of time is incredibly heartbreaking. So glad that you had so many good years together; hopefully your children and grandchildren will help to ease your sorrow. Just know we are thinking of you, Rick and Gay Gartshore

Condolence from Bob Leask on May 24th, 2021 8:12 am

Judy and family. Having known Ward from age 4, I treasure the opportunity I had to visit with him just before Covid. We shared many memories of sports, school and many friends. Rest In Peace big guy.

Condolence from Barbara Mcnulty on May 24th, 2021 1:17 pm

Sincerest condolences to Judy –as the Irish say “he was a lovely man”. My deceased husband very much enjoyed Ward’s company and both were very proud of their association with the Toronto Dominion Bank. Ward will be missed by many. God bless him. Barbara McNulty

Condolence from Milan Kacer on May 24th, 2021 2:16 pm

On behalf of my wife Linda and myself, I would like to extend our deepest condolences to Judy, Kori, Kyle and their families. I have known Ward for more than 40 years. I have so many wonderful memories…the many Christmas’s and Thanksgivings we spent together….the weekly basketball games at Ellwood Public School when we were still agile enough to play…the fun we had going to the movies just to hear Ward laugh…our weekly lunch meetings where we would analyze every recent football and basketball game, as well as try and solve all the world’s problems. I loved Ward like the brother I never had. He was my best friend. Linda and I will miss him very much.

Condolence from Pattie Lovett-Reid on May 24th, 2021 2:16 pm

Mr.Hargreaves as he was known to me, was my mentor, coach, manager and friend. He taught me how to be resilient, respectful, how to be tough yet kind at the same time. And so much more.

I’m so sorry to hear about your loss. He was a great man who was never confused about what mattered to him the most in the whole world -his family.

He will be missed so much and yet I know the great memories you have of him will live forever.

He has left behind a wonderful legacy.

Pattie Lovett-Reid

Dear Kori, Mike, Tyler, Breanna and Marcus,
Armando and I were so very sorry to hear of your beloved father, father-in-law and poppa’s passing. He will always be in your hearts, and memories of him will bring tears to your eyes, but they will also bring smiles to your lips. From all I’ve heard he was a wonderful man, and I’m sure has already received his Angel Wings. Kori please give our condolences to your mom and brother.
It’s hard to lose someone you love, one who’s been such a special part of your life…and your world. Thinking of you all at this difficult time.
Armando and Sas

Very sorry to hear of Ward’s passing. I was an early friend of Ward’s before we even went to school living across the street from him on Coulson Avenue. My deepest sympathy to all his family.

Condolence from Darcy Hilliard Franke on May 24th, 2021 7:21 pm

My heart is filled with sadness but also some great memories. As a teenager you trusted me to watch your children.

All my love to Judy, Kori & Kyle & families.

Our sincerest condolences to Judy, Kori, Kyle, and to the whole family. He was always so friendly when he came to visit Kyle in Kingston, and would generously take some of us out shopping or to the A&W. He and Judy generously hosted me one Thanksgiving, and I learned of his interest in the U.S. Civil War, his tales of the Soo, and his pride in community and family. I know he will be missed by all who knew him.

Condolence from Patricia Duffy on June 6th, 2021 3:54 pm

Judy – when I read the notice of Ward’s passing, I was saddened, of course – but then I smiled. I remembered our drives together to the Toronto Civil War Roundtable many, many years ago and how much fun he made them. He was witty, smart and a lovely man. My condolences on your tremendous loss.

Condolence from Patrick Muise on June 9th, 2021 1:04 pm

Susan and I were very sorry to hear of Ward’s passing. We have always been grateful to him for arranging a small personal loan for us when we were young, had no resources to speak of and were trying to get settled in Bolton. Other bankers looked only at the bottom line, but Ward looked at the people involved.
