JOHN ALEXANDER STRUTHERS John Alexander Struthers died at his home, surrounded by family, in Toronto, Ontario July 1, 2021, from cancer, at the age of 67. John was a native Torontonian born to Georgina Dell Struthers (nee Switzer) and James Alexander Struthers. The love of John's life, Beth Fanjoy, was his life anchor during the progression of his disease. He was a devoted brother to Mary Richardson, uncle to Sarah, Michael and Emily and great uncle to Lucas, Nyla, Lily and Sofia. John's 33 year career was dedicated to education and Seneca College where he taught and was Chair of several departments. After retiring, John embraced his many interests including wood-working, playwriting, and travelling. He was a ruling Elder of Beaches Presbyterian Church where he volunteered much of his time. John will be forever remembered and loved for his many acts of kindness, generosity, loyalty, good humour and quiet thoughtfulness. Special thanks to the oncology team at Sunnybrook Hospital and the nurses at SE Health, in particular Hillary. The family asks that donations be made to Sunnybrook Research, Lymphoma Society or Messages of condolence can be left at

It was always a pleasure to work with John, who was a most kind and generous colleague. We were on a committee together earlier this year, and it is such a shock to hear of his untimely death. Please accept my heartfelt condolences. He will be sorely missed by his family and friends.

John was a thoughtful and kind person, devoted to his students when he taught and teachers when he chaired. He will be missed and I'm sorry for the family's loss.
