We sadly announce John’s sudden passing on the evening of January 3rd, 2013 at his home. He was born in Ontario on July 15th, 1928. John is survived by one son, Jamie, and one granddaughter, Tianna; brothers: George and Pete; sister-in-law, Florence; sisters: Mary, Polly, Lucy, and Irene; and many nieces and nephews. He was predeceased by one brother, Mom and Dad, and his wife, Pat.

John was a genuine, honest, caring, and hard working man who took pride in everything he did and was concerned with everyone around him. He worked for many years in a sawmill and became a saw filer for Crown Zellerbach. He loved his family, fishing and hunting but camping was his passion. John loved his beautiful Lavington and his neat little farm which held his heart and soul. He lived and died where he enjoyed life the most – his home.

We will all miss you, Johnny.

May you rest in peace. God bless you.

The funeral service will be held at Pleasant Valley Funeral Home on Sunday, January 13th, 2013 at 12:00 noon with interment to follow in Pleasant Valley Cemetery.
