Our brother John passed away peacefully at the age of 82 on January 19th 2021. He was the second oldest in a family of 10 children. John was predeceased by Jane our youngest sister, older brother Mike and our Mother Sultana. John is survived by his two sons John Jr. of Toronto and Nicholas of California.
John worked alongside his father for many years in the family real estate business until Nick passed away in 1969.
Brother Nick and sisters: Elizabeth, Mary, Violet, Sylvia, Margaret, and Noreen, will miss your gifted unique character.
The many energetic long drives you made up from Toronto to visit Mother at the Golden Manor and brother Mike, to just hang out with him at The Rosedale in Matheson, these have become wonderful memories alongside the 4AM moose hunts Dad brought us brothers on.
I extend gratitude for the kind zoom call to me from my niece Tina who thoughtfully connected two brothers at the imminent time before he died, allowing me to share Christ with John, this became a short time of drawing back to our youth and our Christian home where our mother and father knew the importance of reading your Bible, striving in this world of distraction to follow the words of scripture.
We send our thanks to the kind caring staff at Extendicare, equally our Priest, Father Orlando of St Mary’s Romanian Orthodox Church.
The funeral service will be held on Monday, January 24, 2022 at 11am. You may view the service on the Lessard-Stephens Funeral Home Facebook Page.
