LOVE, John Isaac - John, a long time resident of Muskoka, and more recently of Woodstock, ON, was called to be with his Lord on Tuesday, February 12th, 2019, in his 92nd year. John, with his brother Paul, grew up in the summer resort business. They were the sons of Lambert and Alice Love, initially at Elgin House and later at Glen Home Hotel, both luxury resorts on Lake Joseph. John was married to Jessie Irene Blair and they had one daughter, Lynda (Wright). John was a founding member of the Christian Business Men’s Committee of Muskoka. He was also elected Governor of the former Ontario Bible College and Seminary (now Tyndale University), serving actively for 15 years. He later entered the field of education on a full time basis by becoming Business Administrator of the Bracebridge Board of Education. When school boards were amalgamated by the Province, he became Superintendent of Business Affairs with the Muskoka Board of Education, a position he held until his retirement in 1989. During his career, John served as a Director of the Ontario Association of School Business Officials, and was a proud recipient of their highest honour, the McCordick Award. He was also a founding member and Governor of the Ontario Association of Administrative Officials. Through the years John and Jessie made their home in Glen Orchard, then after celebrating the 50th wedding anniversary in 2001, decided to move to be closer to Lynda and John and so in 2003 they moved to Woodstock. A memorial service will be held for John at a later date. If desired, memorial contributions to S.I.M. Canada (Sudan Interior Missions), would be appreciated and may be arranged through the Brock and Visser Funeral Home, 845 Devonshire Ave., Woodstock, 519-539-0004.Online condolences at

I have many fond memories of my uncle John from boat rides on the Muskoka Lakes to working at his Glen Orchard home to sharing stories about his father and the resorts he built (Elgin House and Glen Home). In recent years we shared meals together with my aging father, Dan Love, which were important to us all.
John's information was very helpful in putting together a book on the Elgin House. It was a shared effort.
I am very sorry to hear of his passing and wish to offer my sincerest condolences to Jessie, Linda and John.

Kind regards,

Ray Love
