Died peacefully and comfortably, surrounded by family, after a very brief battle with cancer at the Palliative Care Unit of the Jewish General Hospital in Montreal, Quebec. Survived by his loving wife of 58 years, Mabel (Acres) and his children, Richard, Tim and Donna (David Smith) and by his beloved grandchildren Heather, Ian & Katherine Giles, Ryan and Samantha Smith, Jordan and Danielle Thompson, as well as his brother, Bob (Jan) of Calgary. Predeceased by his daughter, Susan (Dan Thompson) and his sister, Lorna (the late George Kirby). John was always active in his community having served 49 years as a volunteer firefighter in Lachute, Quebec as well as 15 years with the volunteer fire department in Wentworth Quebec. He was involved for many years with Scouts Canada, The Lachute Residence, The Rotary Apartments, Meals on Wheels and was Past President of the Brownsburg-Lachute Rotary Club (Paul Harris Fellow) to name but a few. John was an avid fisherman and curler and enjoyed his life time of summers and in later years, winters, spent at Lake Louisa, Quebec. At his request there will be no visitation or funeral.
