1923 – 2013
It is with great sadness that we announce the passing of our dear loved one, John.
He passed peacefully in his home surrounded by the love and support of his wife Win and his daughters.
He had been coping with cancer and surprised us all with his strength and his display of affection and gratitude to all who came in his company – from his family, to his friends and his caregivers.
John is survived by his loving wife Win, of almost 57 years, his 3 daughters Colleen (Lincoln), Tammie (Tim) and Rhonda (Drew), and his 5 grandchildren Jacob, Matthew, Raven, Mitchell and Koeye.
John and Win had a wonderful partnership in life and in business. They had several successful businesses together beginning in California and ending up in Manitoba. While running the businesses, he also had a long running career as a butcher. He was well-known and appreciated for his personal service and attention to detail.
John lived a full life and was especially proud of the beautiful family he had created. He was grateful for all of it and shared openly how he loved us all.
We will miss him with all of our hearts.
Rest in peace, dear one.
Special thanks to the VIHA team, Dr. Trevor Shoesmith and his staff, Hospice volunteers and friends. A Memorial Service will be held on Saturday May 4th, 2013 at 1:30 pm from St. Peter’s Anglican Church in Comox.
In lieu of flowers, donations may be made to Comox Valley Hospice Society or Canadian Cancer Society.
