The Township of South Glengarry is mourning the loss of John Hugh Munro, a prominent Williamstown resident who was killed Wednesday in a tractor accident. Mr. Munro had been a volunteer with the South Glengarry Fire Service for 34 years.

Following his retirement from Kraft, he joined the township’s roads department, where he worked for 10 years until his recent retirement this summer.

"Our department is brokenhearted," stated Fire Chief Dave Robertson, "John Hugh was not only a dedicated member of our Fire Service, but also an avid community volunteer and dear friend to many. He will be missed by the department and community."

"On behalf of Council and all Township employees, I extend our deepest condolences to John Hugh's family," stated Mayor Ian McLeod. "We have lost a valued friend and colleague. Our community is a better place because of his many contributions and he will be sorely missed." All Township flags have been lowered to half-mast today in Mr. Munro's honour.
