It is with great sadness that we announce the passing of John. He was called home on February 13th, 2010 at the age of 75. John was a hard working proud logger, and in later years was a welder for ESCO. He had a love of nature and the great outdoors, where he spent countless hours fishing. John’s love of his life, soul mate, and wife of 50 years, Nadyne, cared for him after his much needed kidney transplant on January 30th, 2001. He felt very fortunate to once again be able to enjoy his family, friends and of course fishing. John was very proud of his two sons, Leonard (Kathi) and Garth, and was very supportive and held a special pride for his grandsons, Scott and Thomas. He will also be deeply missed and forever in the hearts of his sisters, Ellen, Jerry, Frieda, Marge, Wanda and Pauline, brothers Keith and Chester and their families, as well as many lifelong friends. A Celebration honouring John’s life will be held in the spring of 2010. In lieu of flowers donations may be made to the Kidney Foundation or a charity of your choice.
