August 15, 1945 – March 25, 2019
It is with sadness that we announce John Edward Coone passed away at home suddenly on March 25, 2019 at the age of 73. But, it’s with joy that he was born to us August 15, 1945 in Winnipeg, Manitoba, the day Japan surrendered to end World War II. Predeceased by his ex-wife Barbara and parents John and Marguerite, he will be forever loved and missed by his family, bridge family and friends. Cherishing his memory are his son Brian (Patricia) and daughter Christina (Shane). He is further survived by his grandchildren Brendyn (Quinn), Brianna, Lynden, Lauren, and Kiana. Dad led a simple but full life by his standards. He was appreciative of each day as a blessing in recent years and cherished his family, friends, and of course playing duplicate bridge that allowed him to know and touch the many that met him in his travels. Many thanks to those in the past year that assisted him with selfless kind gestures. It was Dad’s wish that there be no service and that he be cremated. We will plan a Celebration of Life in Vernon B.C. in the coming months. May heaven receive his soul and he enjoy eternal peace.
