It is with great sadness that the family of John Thomas Poole announces his tragic passing on April 30, 2013 at Shuswap Lake, BC at the age of 59 years. John was born in Toronto, Ontario on April 27, 1954 to his loving parents Thomas and Edith Poole. He travelled to the West and made Calgary his home in his early 20's. John lived his life to the fullest extent, with a positive attitude and a caring heart. John will be forever loved and deeply missed by his loving wife Jamie; stepchildren, Jared, Tara (Jeff), Josh (Jiselle), grandson Julian, sister Susan Annett, nieces and nephew, Jodie (Paul) Chris, Julie (Trevor) and their children Maddie, Reed, Jackson, Addison, Georgia and Maeson. John was predeceased by his mother Edith Poole in 2012 and his father Thomas Poole in March of 2013. John will be remembered for his infectious laugh that could be heard from miles away, his bright smile, and his kindness extended to all. He will forever be in the hearts of many who knew him, and those that crossed his path, but only for a moment. In John's (JP's) words, after reading this, his comment would be "That's the second best obituary I've read all day". A Celebration of John's life will be held on June 2, 2013 at the Lake Sundance Upper Hall, 63 Suncrest Way S.E., Calgary, AB, from 1:00 p.m. to 4:30 p.m. John expressed himself in vibrant colors, and Hawaiian shirts, so please feel free to dress as he would, for his Celebration. In memory of John (JP), donations can be made to the John Poole Memorial Fund at any Royal Bank Branch within Canada, proceeds of which will be used to support future underwater recovery efforts. Online condolences can be sent through John's obituary at www.bowersfuneralservice.com.
