John Q. Penner

John Q. passed away in the afternoon of May 9th in the Royal Columbian Hospital. He was predeceased by his wife Eileen in 2010 and is survived by three sons; Jim (Elaine), Wayne (Margaret) and Grant (Margaret) along with 5 grandchildren and 9 great-grandchildren.

John was well known as the Owner of Royal Oak Realty in South Burnaby for many years. Early retirement allowed Mom & Dad to enjoy 30 plus winters at Venture Out RV Park in Mesa, Arizona, where they made numerous friends and enjoyed life.

John was a fisherman, a woodworker, and a volunteer and he touched many lives. He was a true “people person” who always had something to say.

A Celebration of Life will be held on Saturday, July 14th @ 1:00 pm at Northview Golf Course, 6857 168th St., Surrey. In lieu of flowers, donations to The War Amps or Canadian Cancer Society would be appreciated.
