It's with sadness that we announce John's passing at age 87. Predeceased by his wife Margi and son Grant, survived by daughter Dianne, son Paul and grandson Geoff. John was born and raised in Kerrisdale. In 1959 he moved his family to the wilderness of Blueridge, North Van, where he was known for his perfectly manicured lawn.
John enlisted in WWII and remained during the occupation. A mechanic by trade, he loved classic cars and fast boats. John had wonderful memories of fishing trips with his buddies.
Father, grandfather and friend - he will be missed.
Many thanks to the staff and volunteers at Lions Gate Hospital Palliative Care and North Shore Hospice for their kindness and support. A family memorial will be held at a later date. In lieu of flowers, donations to North Shore Hospice would be appreciated.
