It is with profound sadness that we announce the passing of our husband, father, grandfather, and great-grandfather on December 24th, 2019 at the age of 87. The anchor of John’s life was his steadfast faith in Christ Jesus as Lord and Saviour. Today, Dad truly rests in peace. John was born to Peter and Katie Driedger of Kingsville. Dear husband of Jean (Fox) for 63 years. Beloved father of Jennifer Freeman (Bill), Jeffrey Driedger (Sandy), David Driedger, Paul Driedger (Betty-Sue), and Diana Humphries (Duane). Proud Papa to Greg Freeman, Pamela Bedard (Rob) and Jarrod Freeman (Amanda); Naomi Pol (Tyler), Katie Burns (Dan) and Afton Driedger; Brittany Johnstone-Levesque, Kyle Driedger (Elisa) and Jordan Driedger (Shelby); Rachel, Rebecca and Ryan Driedger; Bailey and Ty Humphries. Proud Great-Papa to 15 great grandchildren. Predeceased by granddaughter Christie Freeman (1989) and great-grandsons Joseph and Andrew Bedard (2013). John was a long time employee of Transit Windsor. Following retirement, John dedicated more than 20 years as a volunteer at Leamington District Memorial Hospital with his wife Jean. He was an active member his whole life of First Baptist Church in Kingsville. Dad was the rock of our family and will be truly missed.

Jean and family, we’re so sorry to hear of John’s passing. John was a very kind man who always reflected the love of Jesus through his words and actions. We remember the many happy times spent together over coffee, often after a Sunday evening service at First Baptist. We pray you will be comforted and experience peace knowing John is now with his Lord and you will one day be reunited with him. Henry and Lynn Dyck

Jean - our thoughts & prayers reach out to you and your family in this, the most difficult of times.
I have many memories of our days and years at Transit Windsor - too many to mention here. Safe to say that they are all fond memories which have been and will be cherished for a life-time.
Yow were a wonderful and well respected member of the transit family. You will be missed by friends and family. Rest In Peace.

To the Driedger family. John was very instrumental to me attending the Baptist church as a kid. He would often pick me up and take me to church. He was also the one who encouraged me to get baptised and he actually picked me up and took me for that as well. He was very encouraging and the Driedger home was a safe place on Oak street. Thank you John for your inspiration during my childhood years. My you rest in peace. My condolences to all of you.
