July 20, 1930-May 24, 2007
It is with great sadness that we announce the passing of John. After a short but courageous battle with lung cancer he passed away peacefully in his sleep with his loving family by his side.
He will be greatly missed by his wife of 46 years, Helga and his children, Rosemarie (Wade), Robert, Margaret, and Stephanie (Mark), and extended family and friends.
John was a unique character, friendly to all he came across, and known for his exceptional humor and his big heart and hands. A commercial fisherman and logger for over 40 years, John was a devoted family man and excellent provider who also took great pleasure in his hobby farm.
A Memorial Service will be held on Saturday, June 2 at 3pm at the Kingdom Hall of Jehovah’s Witnesses in Port McNeill.
A special thank-you to the Victoria Hospice Society and the palliative caregivers. Thank you to all our friends and family for all their support.
