Ewart was involved with many organisations over his lifetime as well as working for
Mornington Township and the Town of Listowel. During those times he made many great
Ewart had such a positive attitude and outlook on life. He put together a memoir called A
Grateful Life. In it he said his working years were most fulfilling but his family life brought
him the most enjoyment. He hopes we can draw on his positive outlook to get us through
those tough days. The last line of his book reads “ I am grateful for a long and Grateful Life”.
A big thank you to all the staff at Freeport Hospital, Grand River Terrace Palliative Care Unit.
