On Saturday, February 11th, 2006 JOHN EDWARD PEARCE ended his short but brave battle with cancer surrounded by his family. He will be lovingly remembered by his wife of 44 years Lana; three children, Rick (Rose) Stacey (Dorn) and Jody (Chris); sister Helen (Kelly), five grandchildren, Jenelle, Joel, Alexander, Christina and Laura as well as numerous other relatives and friends. John was born on March 16, 1939 in Ontario, he spent many years in B.C. at Surrey, Vernon and Prince George moving to Calgary in 1995. During his twenty-three years with the dairy industry he advanced through the ranks to achieve management status. He ended his working career in the security industry. Despite his professional successes he considered his grandchildren to be his greatest accomplishments. We will miss his great sense of humour and devotion to family. The family would like to thank the doctors and nurses of the Foothills Hospital and Tom Baker Cancer Centre.
