John William

July 15, 1954 ~ February 3, 2009

Now at peace, sweet brother.

John was born in Toronto, grew up in St. Laurent, Quebec and among other places lived in Edmonton, Alberta, California; and Comox Valley. He was a mechanic and a gifted artist in woodcraft. He loved music. John was one of those gentle souls to whom children and animals gravitated.

John was predeceased by his father Frank and is sorely missed by his mother Tommy, sister Kathy (Roy Duperron), brother Joseph, nephews Jeremy, Benjamin and Christophe and niece Logan. Friends and family are invited to a lunch in John’s memory to be held in the Comox Legion Hall on Saturday February 21, 2009 from 1:00-3:00pm.

In lieu of flowers please make donations to the S.P.C.A.

As dark as it may be, there’s always something to see.”
