THORPE, John James Charles It is with much sadness that we are announcing the sudden passing of John James Charles Thorpe on Monday, August 6, 2018. Beloved son of John (Jack) Lyle Thorpe (deceased) and Helen Jane Thorpe. Deeply loved by his partner, Paulina Cadena, his sisters Lori Anne Thorpe, Tracey Jane Thorpe-Krejcir, their families and John's many friends. John was a University of Toronto graduate in Chemical Engineering. He was a true athlete who loved competing in triathlons, playing hockey and was a superb skier. He was an avid traveler who enjoyed being outdoors in natural settings. He loved listening to jazz, playing his guitar and, like his father, renovating his homes. His love of animals and his sensitivity to those less fortunate was endearing. John's greatest joy was using his keen sense of humour to make someone else laugh. To say we will miss him forever is an understatement. John, we love you and hope your next journey is a peaceful one. In lieu of flowers, his family would kindly request a donation to CAMH or a charity of your choice.
