It is with profound sadness that we announce the passing of John “Jack”
Cameletti, peacefully at Groves Memorial Hospital in Fergus, Ontario, on
March 29, 2017 at the age of 85. Loving and devoted husband to Joanne for
62 years. Cherished father of David (Ramona) of Guelph and daughter Cathy
(late Kim) of Bolton. Beloved grandfather of Faith, Kirk, John (JD) and
Carrie. Dear son of the late Guiseppe and Libera. Predeceased by brother
Fred (late Emily) and by sister-in-law Jackie (late Chuck) Anderson. He
also was a very special uncle to 10 nieces and nephews and a great uncle
to many more.

culminating as Director of Education for the Sault Ste. Marie Separate
School Board from 1978 to 1991. He also served as Councillor for the City

The family would like to thank Dr. Jafferjee and the staff of Groves

extended to the staff of Caressant Care Retirement Home, in Arthur, for
going the extra mile for John during his stay there.
