A lifetime resident of the Williamsburg area, Jole Austin McNalty passed away suddenly at home on Monday, March 6th, 2017. He was 22.
Jole was born at the Winchester District Memorial Hospital on March 21st, 1994 to his parents Julie Mitchell and James McNalty.
Jole attended Elma Public School, Maple Ridge Public School, Seaway District High School, North Dundas District High School and graduated from T.R. Leger in 2012.
After completing school he became a truck and coach apprentice at Mile One Mobile in Williamsburg. From a young age Jole spent many hours in the garage developing a love of mechanics with both of his dads.
He enjoyed travelling, fishing and snowmobiling. He was passionate about animals especially his dogs Jade, Rosco, Sheba, and Toby.
At any time of year Jole could be found working on the farm, fixing a vehicle or drinking beer with both his buddies and family. Summer days were spent starting water fights and swimming with his siblings both at home and at the Trout Pond. Jole was happy when sitting around a camp fire with friends and family, camping, and barbecuing. Monopoly, horseshoes, and the card game A**hole were some of his favourite games. Golfing at Cedar Glen Golf Course was one of his most loved outdoor activities.
His career led him to Klein’s Agra Services as an agricultural operator.
His true aspiration was to be a racecar driver and he achieved this goal by racing #99.
Jole is survived by his parents Julie Mitchell (Andrew Lewis) of Williamsburg and James McNalty (Vicki) of Finch, his siblings Jordan McNalty of Kemptville and Martina, Lilly, Kyra and Kloe Lewis of Williamsburg, his grandparents Mary Lou Mitchell (late Lawrence) of Norfolk, Ken McNalty (late Gloria) of Finch, Bill Lewis (Margaret) of Williamsburg and Betty Wheeler (late Desmond) of Chesterville. Jole will be fondly remembered by many aunts, uncles, and cousins.
