James Paton Heron Fund

Why this Fund was created

In memory of his late father, James Paton Heron, James R. Heron has established this fund to be a legacy of giving to the local community. Since bringing his young family over from Scotland, James Paton and his wife, Elizabeth, instilled a love for Canada and for the Halton community into their children. And with James Paton’s kindness, warmth, and giving spirit as a model for the family, this Fund stands as one symbol for generations to come of James Paton’s mark on the world.
