Obituary

John passed away peacefully on November 10, 2020, in his 87th year. Devoted husband of Carole (King) for 65 years. Supportive father of Robert, Karen, and Paul. Predeceased by his parents Andrew and Zuzi, sister Kay (Victor) Barnett (2009), and brother Andy (2011). Survived by in-laws Louie and Joyce King, Allan and Jackie King, Sister-in-law Sandra Repko, 5 nieces, 4 nephews, and numerous lifelong dear friends.
John started school at the Albertville schoolhouse. When classes began in the basement of the current St John de Brebeuf Church, he attended school there, until the new elementary school was built across the street. He completed one year of high school then left school to help his father in the fields. He continued to farm for the rest of his life. He started with tobacco and was proficient at climbing the rafters in the kiln. He then moved into growing handpicked tomatoes and pickles for Heinz. Meanwhile, he also grew acres of corn, wheat and soybeans. For several years, he also grew a small patch of pumpkins that were sold at the roadside. He was thrilled when he could afford to buy an Allis-Chalmers tractor that had a cab with air conditioning and AM/FM radio. In the “off season”, John enjoyed hunting and fishing. The family always included a dog and a cat. His love for the outdoors has been passed onto his children. John was able to enjoy decades-long friendships with several schoolmates, church friends, hunting friends, and neighbours. Saturday evenings were spent attending church and then playing cards with his in-laws.
Cremation has occurred. Visitation will take place at Kendrick Funeral Home (Kingsville) on November 18 3-5pm and 6-8pm. Those wishing to attend visitation are asked to visit www.Kendrickfuneralhome.com to book an appointment under John’s name. Only those with an appointment will be allowed to visit with the family and masks are mandatory. Funeral Memorial mass at St. John de Brebeuf Catholic Church on November 19 at 10am. Interment entrusted to Kendrick Funeral Home at Kingsville Memorial Gardens.
In lieu of flowers, we ask that you make a donation to a charity of your choice. Memories can be shared with the family at www.Kendrickfuneralhome.com

Moose Hunted with John for several years, until the Amherstburg crew parted ways with the Kingsville crew. Loved hunting with John, and he even loaned me one of his atv's one year. I hope that God has a Moose season in Heaven John. Rest in Peace.
