COPE, Arthur (Art) Cope April 27, 1928 - June 17, 2019 Heaven had better watch out! By now Art will be drinking a vodka martini, listening to Frank Sinatra, and to quote John Prine, "Smoking a cigarette that's nine miles long." On Monday, June 17, 2019, Art passed away peacefully at Albright Manor, surrounded by his loving family. His wife of 67 years, Geordie, was by his side. Art and Geordie met when they were 14, dated, and married in 1951. Together they raised five girls, Cyndi (Don Duncan), PJ (Bill Romyn), Georgann (Cam Watson), KC (Jarvis Scott) and Johnna (Kevin McChesney). He was the proud grandfather of twelve grandchildren and five great-grandchildren. Art was fun. He loved a good party and he had many friends. Family events at the lake house made lifelong memories for his children and grandchildren. His grandpa tractor rides for the kids were legendary. The family would like to thank all the staff at Albright Manor for their compassionate care and their enduring sense of empathy and humour. Donations to McNally House in Grimsby would be appreciated in lieu of flowers. Arrangements entrusted to STONEHOUSE-WHITCOMB FUNERAL HOME, GRIMSBY, 905-945-2755. www.smithsfh.com
