It is with a heavy and grieving heart we announce the passing of our beloved Father, Grandfather and friend to many with the courageous battle of cancer.
John enjoyed living a simplistic life. He devoted his time helping other especially in the AA community. His thoughtfulness and kindness will never be forgotten and will forever be in the hearts of those he touched.
He leaves to mourn his daughter, Kathy (Doug) James; grandchildren, Elizabeth and Jonathan Brookes and Katarina James; brother, Paul Lynch of Quebec City, his son Gary and family; nieces and nephews, Linda, Sharon, Luke, Paul, Steve and many extended friends throughout Quebec, Ontario and Alberta. Special friends of John are Ray A, Rick K, Hugh D, Dion B, Wayne D, Wayne H, Mark P, John G and Moe
John was predeceased by his wife Millie (2006) and son Pat (2015. A celebration of John’s life will follow at a future date. In lieu of flowers, donations in John’s memory are gratefully accepted to the Canadian Cancer Society, The Children’s Stollery Hospital and the Alano Club Wetaskiwin.
