Arthur Bycroft

~~~~~~~~~~~ It is with great sadness that we announce the passing on May 19, 2020 of Arthur Bycroft, in his 101st year. One of the few surviving members of “The Greatest Generation”, Art was a World War II veteran. His hearing was permanently damaged during the battle of Ortona, when Canadian troops were victorious against those of Nazi Germany. Art’s hearing impairment did not prevent him from leading a very successful life. The last several years were at Delmanor Retirement Residence in Oakville, where he was adored by both staff and residents. His prowess at euchre was legendary and his absence at the table will be keenly felt. Art was predeceased by his beloved wife Annie (Greer) Bycroft, affectionately known as “Aunt Nan” to many nieces and nephews. He will be sadly missed by his daughter Carla DiFranco (Stephen Heaney), granddaughter Shelby DiFranco (Gianni Busseri), great granddaughter Madalynn, several nieces and nephews, as well as extended family and friends. Due to the COVID-19 restrictions there will not be a funeral visitation or service at this time. A memorial service to celebrate his life will be held at a later date. Please send a message of condolence or share a special thought of Art on the Memory Wall above. Thank you.
