We Remember


June 11, 1958 — September 26, 2022

It is with great sadness that we announce the passing of John Hempseed. He passed away on September 26, 2022, at the young age of 64. He leaves behind his daughter Kelly (Ola), his son Shane, and the mother of his children, Corinne. He also leaves behind his grandchildren Capri, and Romeo and his beloved pup Izzie.

John was a great family man, who loved his children with all of his heart.

Born in Kelowna, BC, John moved to Vancouver, BC, in the late 70’s. He had a long career with Coast Mountain Bus Company and enjoyed his Deep Cove life.  John was lucky to retire at an early age, and travel the world. He had a deep affection for the Okanagan Valley and moved back to Kelowna in 2016. John’s favorite hobby was golf. You could find him at a local golf course, or enjoying the lake in his boat.

Family and friends will honour John, each in their own way, if you golf – go play a round and think of him.  No formal service will be held at John’s request.
