John Millar Buick
January 20, 1930 – March 21, 2015
It is with great sadness and heavy hearts that we announce the passing of John. Although John’s last few months were very difficult, he is now resting peacefully.
John was very proud of and loved his family deeply, including; his wife Ruth, his children James (Donna), Gordon (Debbie), Murray (Diane), Marilyn (Gerry), and Joan (Troy), and his 11 grandchildren and 2 great grandchildren.
He leaves to mourn his sisters Lillian Simcock, Beth Burley and brother in law Bill Cameron, as well as extended family and friends. He was predeceased by sister Jean Calder (David) and sister Margaret Cameron.
John was born to Lizzie and William Buick in Rossland BC, and grew up with his four sisters. He married Ruth in 1952 in Rossland where they started their family. Eventually they moved to Prince George, where their other children were born. In 1971 the family moved to Courtenay.
John will be remembered by many people from the years spent behind the counter at the Willemar Grocery Store. He then went on to enjoy many years of retirement where he was able to pursue his hobbies of curling, golfing, gardening and walking.
All family and friends are invited to a celebration of his life at the St. George’s United Church in Courtenay on April 25th, 2015 at 2:00 pm.
Flowers graciously declined. Donations in John’s memory may be made to The Sonshine Lunch Club, c/o St. George’s United Church, 505 6th Street, Courtenay BC V9N1M5.
