Connor, John

John passed away on September 1, 2015 in Agassiz, BC. He was born July 27, 1923 in Lethbridge, AB. He is survived by his children David, Louise (David J), Scott (Cindy), Maggie (Jim), Julie (Michael), grandchildren Matthew, Jessica, Ben (Kristen), Anna May (Tim) and great grandchildren Avery & Conner. He is predeceased by his dear sister Mary, his daughter Mary and his wife Toni (Adeline Larochelle). In John’s words, I have lived a charmed life… filled with great love and joy, deep sorrow and loss, hard work and success and always an “idea” that he was working on which sparked many projects over the years. John retired from a successful career in commercial art in 1979 and returned to his first love, painting. His drawings, oil paintings and watercolors will be his legacy leaving his family and friends with lasting memories. A private family celebration of life will be held in November when we reunite John with his loving wife of 55 years, Toni. His family would like to express their gratitude to the many kindhearted people who supported dad in his home well into his 91st year and the caring staff and residents at the Glenwood Care Center for their kindness in his last few months. In lieu of flowers donations can be made to the Canadian Mental Health Association in memory of John. On line tributes and condolences may be offered at Henderson’s Funeral Home in care of arrangements,
