John M Klassen

Klassen, John M.

Jan 16, 1915 – Aug 25, 2003

It is with great sadness we announce the sudden passing of our father. Though he had many medical conditions he continued to amaze us with his perseverance, dignity, and spirit for life. Just recently he was swimming in the pool with his grandchildren, traveling by train to Victoria to visit with his daughter and grandson and standing on a chair to pick blackberries for his jam. . .

It is through such memories that his spirit will continue in all of us. . .

Blessings to you, Dad.

Love you forever,

Your Family
