February 22, 1927 – May 3, 2009
We regret to announce the passing of John on May 3, 2009, at Gateby Care Facility. He leaves Jean, his loving wife of 55 years; son Brian (Debbie), grandchildren Craig and Danielle; daughter Brenda Norrish (Randy), grand-children Jonathan, Jenica and Carly, all of Vernon; one brother Peter (Dorothy) and family in Alberta.
John lived his early life in Kerrobert, Saskatch-ewan, then moved to Vernon with his parents. He was employed for 35 years as parts manager at Capital Motors and Parkside. He was an avid golfer and curler all his adult life.
John was a very kind and thoughtful person, a selfless man. He will be sadly missed by family and friends.
The family would like to extend special thanks to all the staff at Gateby and to Dr. Long for the care and comfort they gave to John.
A Memorial Service will be held on Sunday, May 10, at 1:00 p.m. at Pleasant Valley Funeral Home, with Mr. Brian Jackson officiating. A tea will follow.
In lieu of flowers, a donation to a charity of your choice would be appreciated.
Arrangements are in the care of Vernon Funeral Home
