Wylie Augustus Coon, 89, passed at St. Lawrence Lodge on January 29 2021 where he resided for more than 2 years. His Family residence at 300 Coons Road off Hartsgravel Road is in Elgin. Wylie was the son of the former Wylie Ormond Coon and former Daisy Elizabeth Coon (nee Henry) a well known family to the area. Wylie was married to and predeceased by his wife Irma Audrey Halladay Coon, although Irma died at the young age of 47, Wylie never remarried. They had 6 children together, Mary Jacques (Ron), Cathleen Bateman (Grant), Cindy Wood (Mark), Rodney Coon (Sandra Raison), Norm Coon (Eva Illigan) and Orm Coon (Sarah Massey). Wylie had four sisters and one brother, Gwen Murdock (Gordon), Joan MacRow (Donald), Margaret Emmons (Gerald), Linda Sly (Henry) and Eric Coon (Doreen Hyde) predeceased by sister Joan and brother-in-law Gerald. Survived by 20 grandchildren, 23 great-grandchildren and 2 great-great-grandchildren, also several nieces and nephews. Wylie worked and retired from Dupont Canada, Kingston Ontario, while operating the farm. From the Family, Anyone that knows Dad, Grampa knows family came first, and he always gave a home to anyone that needed one, He was a generous and a kind person that way. He loved our Mom and family dearly, the home was full of hustle and bustle never a dull moment as families were, having large gatherings and the annual Coon’s Picnic were highlights of his life. He cherished these moments with pride. The Coon family were important to Elgin and the area and Dad always upheld his name and the heritage he was proud of.
Wylie when a youngster drove the milk to the cheese factory and his mother to the store with a horse and cutter and loved telling these stories. He loved the sales barn and the stories there. When he was young he broke a tooth and his Father had it capped in gold for which he was forever known. He never ever complained not even once he was never afraid of hard work. He was a well respected man who seemed to know everyone and loved to chat up the stories with a nod of his head and a smile from ear to ear always walking on the outside of a sidewalk. He was quiet by nature but still had his own thoughts when asked. He was called “Wylie The Great” by his grandchildren. The last Patriarch of this Family will be missed by all that knew him...

God Bless You Wylie...when we were very young, maybe 5 and me 7, on our way from school you invited me to your hiding spot (to get away from the girls) There wasn't a ladder and you went up that wall like it was no problem at all. Needless to say I didn't follow. Lorraine M. My deepest sympathy to you family

Mary, I remember spending fun times at your house on Hartsgravel Road. That was when we went to Coons school, a one room schoolhouse that was just down the road. My sincere condolences to you and your entire family on the loss of your father.
