CFL Alumni John Stuart Trainor Passes Away
It is with profound sadness that we announce the passing of John Stuart Trainor, on December 20, 2017 with his love Rita by his side. He fought a brave and short battle with lung cancer. He was 70 years old, born March 18, 1947.
He was born in Bangor, Ireland and at the age of 6 came with his parents John and Elizabeth to Toronto. Raised in the beach area, he attended Malvern Collegiate, before going to Tennesse Tech on a football scholarship. On returning to Toronto he played offensive end for the Toronto Argonauts and Montreal Alouettes. He later worked in the film industry in Los Angeles and Toronto. Well travelled, a ferocious reader and talented writer, he was great company and a true, loyal friend. He leaves behind brother Norman (Wendy), their children Ryan, Sloan, Shauna, his partner Rita and her daughters Lisa and Megan (Casey) and their children, Rachel, Rory, Eva and Conor. “May the road always rise up to meet you. May the wind always be at your back. May the sun shine warm upon your face, until we meet again.”
