The Venerable J. David Stanway B.Sc., M.A., M.Th., D.Min.

June 30, 1941-March 3, 2024

The family announces the passing of John David Stanway in his 83rd year. Best friend and dearly beloved husband of Judith Mackenzie Stanway. Loving father to Heather (Mark Ross), Beth (Tom Klemmer), and John David (Danielle Bennett). Much loved Poppy to Jacob and Suzie Klemmer, Beatrice and Lionel Stanway, and Adele Bennett. Survived by his brother Ted (late Judy). David was predeceased by his first wife, Suzanne des Trois Maisons Stanway.

Born in Montreal QC, David was a graduate of Sir George Williams University (B.Sc.), McGill University (M.A.) and Montreal Diocesan College (M.Th.) and had an earned doctorate from Seabury-Western Theological Seminary (D. Min.). An Anglican priest, ordained in 1966, David worked as a parish priest in the Diocese of Montreal and the Diocese of New York. In 2003 he was appointed Archdeacon of the Richelieu. After his retirement in 2006, David moved to Ottawa, although he continued to spend summers at his beloved cottage in St. Anicet. In retirement David spent many hours working on his model railroad setup – a source of great pleasure for him and for his grandchildren.

There will be a visitation at St. Aidan’s Anglican Church, 934 Hamlet Rd, Ottawa at 10:00 AM on Friday, March 8th, 2024. The funeral will follow at the same location at 11:00.

In lieu of flowers, contributions can be made to the Suzanne Stanway Arts Haven at the Nesin Cultural Arts Centre, or to any local Alzheimer’s Society.
