Steven Maurice Catt

Death:  January 5, 2019

Steve M. Catt, in his 58th year after a long and courageous battle with cancer, peacefully passed away surrounded by his loving family on Saturday January 5, 2019.

Steve was the beloved husband of Lynne (Ronholm), and will be greatly missed by his second love Kiera.  A loving father to his three sons, Joshua (Neanna) of London, Jeremy (Christie) of Sarnia, and Justin (Kayla) of Kitchener.  Proud Papa of Jordan, Jackson, and Julia.  Cherished son of the late Shirley (Paulitzki), Ron (Garrity) and Douglas Catt.  Dear brother of Ray and Cheryl Hamel of Langton. 

He will be sadly missed by his nieces Becky (Cole, Stacey) of Barrie and Rachael of Calgary along with all his Aunts, Uncles, Cousins, Extended Family and his many Friends and Co-Workers.

Steve’s life was his motorcycle and his joy was riding it as often as possible. 

He was passionate about so many things such as Camping, Fishing, building Model Cars and loved being creative. He was never afraid of trying something new and always happy to learn something new. His biggest joy was talking with his friends and when meeting new people.

Steve spent the past few years trying to fulfill his bucket list and was fighting right up until the end to have the ability to ride his motorcycle once again and continue on his journey. We never completed all his dreams but we had one heck of a time trying and he loved every minute of it.

Steve will be very sadly missed but forever in our hearts and we love him always. Rest easy my love.

A huge thank you to the staff and volunteers at Von Sakura House for making Steve’s last few hours on earth peaceful ones. The compassion and caring was greatly needed and appreciated.

Cremation has taken place.

In lieu of flowers and gifts a donation to the Salvation Army, The Terry Fox Foundation, or to Von Sakura House would be greatly appreciated by the family.

I was saddened to hear about Steve Catt, a former student of mine years ago at Parkview Public School in Sarnia. Sadly we often lose touch with people over the years! As a Grade 7/8 teacher, I remember Steve's great smile, and fun, cooperative spirit. Although I do not know Steve's family, and those dear to him, know he made his mark on people. He was a great kid, and it sounds like he never changed! My sincere condolences!

John Gordon Craig
Birth:  January 17, 1942
Death:  December 21, 2018

As many fondly knew him, “Gord” passed peacefully at home and completed his Journey here with us.

Being a native of Hamilton, Ontario, he has left a legacy behind to Tillsonburg that is unique and one of a kind (just like Gordon).  We will ALWAYS feel his presence as he is the essence of the MILL TALES INN.


Even though he was always ready with a smile to the multitudes of guests visiting Mill Tale Inn, Gordon was a private man who loved to be at home, working of course, building and creating. But his greatest passion would be sitting on a tractor; he said he felt peace with the fresh smell of earth being cultivated.


He is terribly missed by our second Family - the Crew at MTI - who carried the Mill alone during the holidays and trying times these past few weeks. Gordon and I are so blessed and proud of them.

Gordon will live on forever in the hearts of his sons Michael and Krissie and their children Colton and MacKenzie; John Gordon Jr. and his children Connor and Ashley; and in the hearts of Gordon’s step children Nicole and John and their children Madelyn and Jordyn; Justin and Jamie and their children Tristan and Jaylyn; Natasha and her son Jack; and Lindsay and Dani.

Remembered by his closest pal and partner in building crime, Bob Foutre, and by his best 4 legged girl Shanti who was by his side to the end.

Lastly there was me, Lauralee (Laura), his wife, his business partner, and best friend. You took my heart with you when you gave me your last embrace. Our hearts and souls are intertwined forever, until you come to take me with you….I will be waiting.

Until then we will ALL carry on your legacy you have left behind. You have touched so many lives with your spirit, your talent, and just being YOU!!


Gordon’s wishes were to be cremated with no funeral Services.

The family and staff family will be having a time together on his upcoming birthday.

Gordon did not want any flowers but memorial donations to the Tillsonburg District Memorial Hospital are appreciated…he felt they best needed money.


Thank you all for supporting our staff, our family, and our family run business. We want you to know that when you come to the Mill, Gordon is never far from us and will always be there with a whisper of “thanks for coming”.

Lauralee Craig

Wayne & Lynda Sykes

Our heartfelt condolences to you and your whole family, including the staff at Mill Tales Inn. We have been customers of Gord's since the days at Craiger's Cove in Port Burwell - best fish dinner anywhere with the most scrumptious scalloped potatoes. Our brother-in-law looked enough like Gord to be his brother, and we always had a good laugh whenever he would see us in line for dinner, as it was like the two of them looking into a mirror. Gord always had a warm smile and a kind word for everyone. He was always thankful for your business, and he never failed to tell you so. He has left all of the Tillsonburg and surrounding area residents with such a wonderful legacy in the Mill Tales Inn - a classy and first rate dining establishment. We are going to miss his smiling presence at the table next to "the post." We always looked for him there. We are going to miss him. So sorry for your loss, and for ours, too. He was such a nice man.

Janis Hamilton

Heartfelt sympathies to you Laralee and families including Mill Tale family. Shocking news. Great loss for Tillsonburg area as well.

Yes, his Spirit lives on in the many establishments he created in Port Burwell as well as charming unique Mill Tale Inn. Thank you GORDON for touching our lives. Blessed Be.
