John was predeceased by his wife of 60 years, Elizabeth(Boldt) in 2016, his daughter Linda Grigg in 1985, and his granddaughter Alison Koop in 1996.
John was also predeceased by his parents Peter and Sarah Wall, his sisters Hilda Vogt, Frieda Hubert and brothers Werner and Neil. Survived by his brothers Eric, Peter and Rudy and sisters Louise Krahn, Anne Reimer, Sally Ens, and Kathy Guenther.
John came to Canada from Paraguay with his parents and siblings in 1956 and settled in St. Catharines, Ontario. He built a house on Rochelle Drive, where he and Elizabeth lived until 2015. Many family memories centered around their home where friends and family were always welcome. John worked in construction until his “retirement” at age 65, passing the business on to his son, Ron. He could be seen on the job site for many years after, still helping out because he loved working alongside his son and grandsons passing on his knowledge and skills.
In 2018, John found love again and married Frieda Friesen. They had three wonderful years together sharing their love of playing games with each other and with their friends. They also travelled up north a few times before Covid 19 restricted their travel. It was evident they truly enjoyed each other’s company. The family would like to thank the wonderful, professional and compassionate staff at the Hamilton General Hospital for the care they gave John in his last two weeks.
The family will receive friends at the Vineland chapel of Tallman Funeral Homes. 3277 King St. On Monday, August 2 from 6:00 – 8:00pm. Memorial service will be held on Tuesday, August 3rd 10:30am at Central Community Church. 240 Scott St., St Catharines. Private family interment at Victoria Lawn Cemetery prior to the service. If desired memorial donations can be made to Mennonite Central Committee or Hospice Niagara.
Nos plus sincères sympathies à la famille et aux amis de John
