Edward (Ted) Hares Obituary

Edward Henry Hares

October 8th 1930 – November 13, 2023

With love and respect, we announce the passing of Ted Hares on November 13, 2023.  Ted passed away peacefully at Andy’s house in Port Carling, Ontario.

Loving husband of Janice for 62 years. Cherished father of Jodi and husband Rick Madden. Much loved grandpa to Nicholas Madden and Taylor and her husband Brad Currie.

Ted was the son of the late Walter and Madeline Hares and grandson of the original land settlers Henry and Elizabeth Hares who settled on 200 acres in Allensville in 1868 where he lived his last days.

Ted worked in the municipal field for 25 years, first as a clerk, treasurer and welfare officer in the Utterson area.  He then moved to the Town of Huntsville when district government was introduced, retiring in 1995.

Ted was predeceased by his sister Mary McKee (Ross) and his brother Bert Hares (Marilyn) and nephew David Hares.

He will be missed by his many nieces, nephews and cousins.

He will also be missed by his furry friends Zoe, Sylvester and Mavrick.

We send our heartfelt thanks to Closing the Gap and The Friends for their wonderful support teams, Huntsville District Memorial Hospital – Muskoka Algonquin Healthcare team, Dr. Andy MacMillan and Muskoka Paramedic Services.  The family expresses their deep gratitude to Andy’s House for the care and compassion shown to Ted in his final chapter.
