John “Johnny” Robert Lussier
August 7, 1967 – September 11, 2021
It is with great sadness that we announce the sudden passing of our cherished Johnny.
John was born on August 7, 1967 in Oakville, Ontario to Frances “Fran” (nee Higgerty) and John Lussier. They relocated to Ottawa in 1975.
John is survived by his beloved mother Fran Lussier, brother Frank, adored niece Lauren, and sister-in-law Kim (nee Potterton). He also leaves behind his devoted girlfriend Margaret (Sell) and her family, and will be missed by Eastyn, Winnie, and Grandma. Many members of his extended family, including aunts, uncles, and cousins also mourn his loss.
John attended Overbrook Public School, York Street Middle School, and Ottawa Technical Secondary School, graduating in 1995. This is where many long term friendships, memories, and life skills were made and learned.
John was highly fun-loving, found joy in the simplest things in life, and was always laughing and smiling. Growing up, he played hockey with the East Ottawa Voyageurs and lacrosse with the Gloucester Griffins and later coached Midget-level hockey teams. He enjoyed spending his time fishing, hunting, golfing, and with family and friends. His loss will be felt by all who met him.
