Oct 14, 1940 – July 31, 2015
Our hearts are heavy as John leaves to experience the next dimension. John lived life as his own man to the end. He inspired so many to be more than what they thought they could be. He leaves his wife, Jan, daughters Kathleen Higgins of Calgary, Cindy Gordon of Victoria and Kristina Higgins of Boston, USA, grandchildren Rachel and Andrew Gordon, step-daughters Elizabeth Traer, Janice Hernandez, step-sons Peter and David Provan. His extended family and wide circle of friends across Canada, the USA and Europe will grieve his passing, but please wish John bon voyage as he starts on this the next great adventure. Thanks to the palliative care team of Moog House and Dr. Barkhuisen for their help and care. No service at John’s request… just take a moment to remember your time with him. Drink a little whiskey and sing a little Willie or Waylon, Gordon or Ian or maybe even some Leonard to bring back memories of good times together.
