John passed away in the early morning hours of Sunday, January 7 at the palliative care unit of the MUHC. John was an ever proud Londoner, a consummate story teller, an eternal optimist, and the proudest dad ever.
He was loved by many, but by no one more than his wife Karen, with whom he shared his life for the last thirty-seven years, and his beloved daughters, Simone and Mara. He also leaves behind his sister Pat and her family, sister-in-law Nora, son-in-laws Joshua and Tarek, and many friends made over a long life, well-lived.
A celebration of John’s life will be held in the spring, but in the meantime, contributions in his memory can be made to the Cedars Cancer Foundation.
Rest easy John and breathe freely now – we will love you always.
