It is with great sadness that we announce the sudden passing of John Vegh, dear son of the late Esther and John Vegh of Montreal, at the Royal Victoria Regional Health Centre in Barrie, Ontario. John enjoyed every moment of life to the fullest with a positive outlook and passion for people, animals, music, and nature. John leaves behind his dear wife and best friend of 26 years, Sharon Vegh, his dear sister Linda Vegh-Balogh and brother in-law Chuck Balogh, his dear aunt Joan Csizmazia and beloved Picasso; his in-laws: Fred Ritchot, William Ritchot, Jerry Halas, Michelle Ritchot, Stefphany Cholakis and Wayne Taillieu; nieces Tammy and her husband Brent, Shelly, Jody and great niece Miya Taillieu and Kayla Kinakin and her husband Brandon and great nephew Brett Ferraro-Taillieu. John wished to send his appreciation for the care provided from his long-time family physician and the staff in Aurora, Ontario, Dr. Pravesh Jugnundan. John was predeceased by his loving parents Esther (Nagy) Vegh and John Vegh, his uncle Joseph Csizmazia, his mother and father in-law Patricia (Crump) and Fred Ritchot, sisters in-law Lynda Taillieu and Joyce Ritchot and great niece Destiny Taillieu. Those who so desire may make memorial donations in memory of John to the Ontario Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals (Ontario SPCA) or a charity of your choice. Beautiful John was memorialized at Steckley-Gooderham Funeral Home, 30 Worsley St., Barrie. Online condolences and memories may be left at John's many friends and family will be invited in the coming months to attend private celebrations of John Vegh's eternal soul in Barrie, Montreal, Niagara Falls and Winnipeg.

I will always remember John's warm smile and engaging personality. He was a free spirited person who loved life, adored his wife and appreciated his friendships. Having spent many days together in Finland over the years, he always filled the time there with laughter, great stories and life-long memories. You will truly be missed. RIP
