Heroic Husband and Father lost saving family

Jeff Mavor was a loving father of 6, husband, son, brother and friend. His passion for flying led him to Orillia where his dream of starting and raising a family with his loving wife Kathy began. With Kathy by his side he was able to open up his own business doing what he loved.... flying. Jeff successfully opened and operated Lake Country Airways where he also managed Orillia Aviation where a majority of the planes maintenance was done. 

Jeff was very much involved with his church community and cherished by anyone who crossed paths with him. He was kind, soft spoken and a hard worker. Jeff was known to always have a project on the go but never hesitated to stop and help a friend. But If you knew Jeff it was family first! He adored his wife and children and always had one or two of the kids tagging along. 

On Sunday August 4th 2019, Jeff and Kathy decided to spend the day with 5 of the kids and the family dog, they packed sandwiches and loaded up Jeff’s plane then took off for another day of fun at their remote cabin. Unfortunately, there was an unforeseen plane accident. Due to Jeff’s heroic act all 5 kids and Kathy got out with minor scraps and bruises in the process sadly him and their life long dog , Pal did not make it.  

Jeff leaves behind his beautiful wife Kathy and his 6 wonderful children who will dearly miss him and never forget their Hero! they will remember as Dad. 

We are asking for donation to help Kathy and the kids through this devastating time. 
We hope that you can find it in your hearts to donate in memory of Jeff Mavor.
