October 22, 1935 – February 23, 2012


It is with great sadness that we announce the passing of John Joseph Newman.  After a courageous battle with cancer, John passed away peacefully in his sleep at Kelowna Hospice House.


John is survived and lovingly remembered by his wife Joyce, son Jay of Toronto, sister Elsa (Peter) of Toronto.


We are thankful for the time we had with him and are comforted that he is no longer in pain.


John had been an international horseshow judge for in excess of 25 years.  After his retirement from the show ring, he continued to coach on a private basis.


We would like to thank the wonderful staff at Hospice House for their care, attention and compassion, also a special thank you to Dr. Rachel Carver.


A celebration of life will be held on Tuesday, February 28th at 1:00 pm at Springfield Funeral Home, 2020 Springfield Road, Kelowna, BC.  In lieu of flowers, memorial donations may be made to the Central Okanagan Hospice Association – Hospice House, 2035 Ethel Street, Kelowna, BC, V1Y 2Z6.
