John Sarkady passed away on Tuesday, Sept. 10, 2002 at Chilliwack General Hospital at the age of 79 years.
He was born December 21, 1922 in Hungary and had lived in the Chilliwack area for the last 26 years.
John was loved and will be greatly missed by his ‘adopted’ family, Stuart and Shirley Vander Kooi; their children, Cindy (David) with granddaughters, Courtney and Morgan; Allan (Leanne) with grandson Brandt; Nancy (Chris); and Darin (Michelle). He will also be missed by his friends, especially Hector Cook.
John was a retired carpenter who still enjoyed puttering in the workshop, making homemade wine with Stuart, and entertaining friends in his gazebo. He liked Shirley’s apple pie, driving his old Cadillac and telling stories.
A graveside service will be held at Chilliwack Cemeteries on Tuesday, Sept. 17, 2002 at 3 p.m.
