We Remember


May 29, 1937 — August 22, 2013

Left to mourn are his wife Jane of 48 years; children Gavin (Andrea), Troy (Mel), Leanne (Dean), his wonderful Grandkids who he adored, sister Sylvia (Bob), many nieces and nephews.  Predeceased by his Mom (Ella), Dad (Andy) and brother (Les).

John was born and raised in the Westbank/Peachland area and began his career in Kelowna, volunteering and living at the Kelowna Fire Dept for many years. He went on to further his career as an electrician serving the Okanagan area for decades.  John was a good man who touched many people whether it was from his long time commitment to sports, his shop, woodworking or his family and friends.  As much as he was our biggest fan and cheerleader, we were also his.  John made his TSN turning point and peacefully moved on to play his next game.

“We wish we could have just one more thing to say, but Dad, you went so Peacefully, we wouldn’t want to have it any other way”

In lieu of flowers please share a moment with someone who means as much to you as John did to us.
