The Guest Book is expired.
Born on a farm in the Dutch countryside, he immigrated to Canada in the 1950's. He found work and sent for his childhood sweetheart to join him and they married in Lachine, Quebec in 1956. John was a long time and much valued employee of Dominion Engineering where he worked as a Production Planner. After raising their family in NDG, John and Jet fulfilled their dream of becoming home owners and moved to a quiet street of Pointe Claire in the 1980's. John soon became a fixture in the neighborhood endearing himself to his neighbors. He was quick to lend a hand and will be dearly missed by all. He has been reunited in death with his beloved wife and is survived by his children; Peter (Monique Lacas) , Timothy and Ellen, and his granddaughters Haley and Claire Svehla. The family wishes to thank their many friends for the support given to them during this difficult time. Please join us for a Mass and Reception at St. Edmond's of Canterbury Church in Beaconsfield, Quebec on Friday, October 11th at 1pm. In lieu of flowers donations to reCreation+ would be appreciated.
