It is with great sadness and heavy hearts we announce the sudden passing of our loving husband, father and grandfather. John was born in Chipman, NB, September 25, 1951 and left this earth far too early on November 29, 2017 at home in Kelowna.
Memories of his incredible life will be forever cherished by Gloria, his best friend and beloved wife of 47 years. His strength will live on through his sons John Edward (Lisa) and Jeff Girvan, and his grandchildren, Madeline Elise and Liam Girvan.
He will be lovingly remembered by his siblings, Diane (Keith), Ross (Doreen) and Ricki (Laurianne), his sister-in-law Elise, brother-in-law Ray, his Uncle Huey, and his best friend Ron (Elaine).
John was a fiercely devoted family man and many hours were spent sitting around the kitchen table with those he held dear talking and playing cards. He was most at peace on a small lake with a fishing rod in his hand and his wife and dog at his side.
John and Gloria, along with their youngest son Jeff, operate a successful local business, Fraser Urethanes. John took immense pride in his quality work and often spoke fondly of his many clients and colleagues whom he considered friends.
Although he is gone he will never be forgotten.
