Sept 24, 1929 – July 11, 2019
Peacefully, on July 11, 2019 John passed away at the age of 89. He will be lovingly remembered by his wife Susan; daughters Helga (Hans), Hedy (Wayne), Anita (Chris); grandchildren David,
Evan (Stacey), Keith, Caley and great-grandson Kiptyn.
John was born in Mariental, he fled to Holland and then to Paraguay with his family during the
war. It was in Paraguay that he trained his beautiful horses he was so proud of. He met and
married Susan in Paraguay in 1956. Together they immigrated to Canada in 1958. He worked at
Canadian Bronze for 32 years, he was a master craftsman of bronze and aluminum castings.
There was nothing dad couldn’t fix or build tirelessly working and always willing to lend a
helping hand. He meticulously cared for his home and garden and, looking at his bare driveway
you wouldn’t know it was winter. He enjoyed his daily walk for the newspaper without our knowledge with our dog Max at times. Dad loved visits with his grandchildren, always sharing his chocolate stash. Dad, your humour and big smile will forever be missed by all. Rest in peace.
We would like to express our gratitude for the exceptional care and compassion dad received
from the staff at West Park Manor.
A private family service will be held.
Nos plus sincères sympathies à la famille et aux amis de John Quiering Thursday July 11th 2019..
