C. John passed away peacefully, at home and surrounded by caring family, the morning of December 26, 2005.
Born February 22, 1909, in Jangaon, India, John came to Canada an orphaned immigrant after the first world war. Predeceased by his oldest son Daniel in 1998, John is survived by Anne, his loving wife of 63 years, their remaining five children (Edith, Anne-Marie, Frieda, Alice and Paul) and many grandchildren. In addition to the close friends and family John held special influence over in his nearly 97 years here, there were many school children and remote BC communities that benefitted from the compassion and knowledge John shared as a school teacher, his life-long profession.
John will be missed, but his legacy will not. To a successful journey Grandpa, may you find peace in our Lord’s arms.
A memorial service will be held Wednesday, December 28, at 2:00 pm at Grace Community Church.
