Mr. John Connell, “Candyman”, late of Abbotsford, passed away on June 25, 2004 at the age of 54 years at MSA Hospital.

He is survived by his son Jesse (Roxana) Connell, loving girlfriend Helen, loving mother, father and sister, and other family and friends.

John, or as many people knew him as the Candyman, was a great man. He touched many hearts and lit up the room wherever he went. He was the type of person that would always lend a helping hand. Truly an Angel on earth, John was a big man with a soft heart who always forgave. He will be deeply missed but will always be in our hearts. He rests with our Father in heaven, Jesus Christ, his Lord and Saviour!

A gathering to celebrate John’s life will be held on Friday, July 2, 2004 from 6 – 9 p.m. at his home, 306-32124 Tims Avenue, Abbotsford (Buzzer #22).
