1938 - 2022

It is with deep sadness and great memories our family announces the passing of John on October 25, 2022 at the age of 84.
John was predeceased by his wife (Linda) and daughter (Michelle). John will be deeply missed by his son Michael (Debi); grandchildren, Sara, Devon (Sarah), Alexandria (Jason) and Trent and the many loving nieces and nephews who fondly recall their Uncle John.
Born and raised in Winnipeg as a young man, John enjoyed motorcycles and motorcycle racing, being a member of the Winnipeg Roughriders, Winnipeg Motorcycle Club and the Manitoba Motorcycle Club in the 1950s to the 1970s. John worked most of his life as a master mechanic for the Carter Chev Olds Dealership. During this time, John became a coach/manager and Provincial registrar for the Manitoba Amateur Wrestling Association. Many a weekend was spent with Mr. Wilson driving the Kelvin wrestling team to events in his black van. John, Linda and the Wilson family spent many happy times at the "Lot" out in Lac du Bonnet with friends and family.
He will be very missed by all, a true Irishman, husband, father, grandfather, uncle and friend.

Rest well Dad.

Thank you for all your kind wishes. The family will have a private celebration of John's life.
