It is with a heavy heart that I learned of the sudden passing of John Macklem on Wednesday.

John had a long and accomplished political career, as a former Councillor for Ward 1 in Kawartha Lakes, Reeve of Laxton-Digby-Longford and the last Warden of Victoria County, prior to amalgamation.

Beyond his commitment and dedication to public service, John was a tremendous supporter of the Historical Society and the Old Gaol Museum.

I am fortunate to have known John for several years, and have long admired his passion for helping those in our community.

At this difficult time, my thoughts go out to John’s wife Darlene, his family and friends.

His passing is a loss for our entire community and his contributions and passion will be sorely missed.
