71 of Duncan, British Columbia

Passed away on Wednesday, February 20th in Maui, Hawaii while on a snorkelling trip. John was born in Montreal, lived in Ontario most of his life and relocated to Duncan, British Columbia with his wife Barbara, for his retirement.

John was a fun loving man who had a talent and passion for woodworking. Through this, he created many beautiful pieces for family and friends that they will treasure for years to come. He enjoyed swimming, reading and snorkeling and through his love for snorkeling was able to experience many of the most beautiful dive sites in the world.

John was extremely proud of his two daughters, Tara Pollock, of Ladysmith, B.C., and Tanya Rosemarin of Toronto, Ontario, and his grandchildren Matthew and Joshua Rosemarin. He is survived by his loving wife, Barbara Altimas, of Duncan, B.C., and his two sisters Bridget Sparks and Nora Kavanaugh of Australia.

We will dearly miss him. We will miss his smile, his sense of humour and his love. We are comforted by the fact that he died doing what he loved. John will always be with us in our memories.

The family will be hosting a Celebration of Life at the Quw'utsun' Cultural and Conference Centre in the Quamichan room, on Saturday, March 9th at 3:00PM.
