Loving great-grandfather to Sofia. He will be greatly missed by numerous nieces, nephews and many dear friends.
He is predeceased by the love of his life Rose, wife of 63 years. John was proud of his heritage and a dedicated member of the Ukrainian community in Edmonton. He was a spiritual person and long devoted member of St John’s Orthodox Cathedral and Church Choir. John was a gentle soul with a good heart and loved by all who knew him. He did everything he could to take care of those around him and his final home at St. Andrew’s Selo.
