John Leger, passed away on January 27, 2019, at the age of 51 years. John was born in Niagara Falls in 1968 and moved to Ottawa soon after. He grew up in a loving foster family and in 1992, John came to live at Christian Horizons. John will be forever remembered by his closest friends and roommates from Clearview Apartments – Robert, Chris, Maria, Sherry, Jobi, Susie and Rachael. He will be remembered fondly by all the staff at Christian Horizons, his colleagues, friends and staff at Grow Studios where he worked, and by his many friends and his wide network of supporters. John was a long time member of Bethel Pentecostal Church and Friendship Club. He cherished his independence and freedom, and was a relentless advocate for himself and all people living with disabilities. He enthusiastically served on committees of numerous organizations, including Bethel Pentecostal Church, Christian Horizons, Citizen Advocacy and Island Park Towers. John loved many activities including swimming and bowling and participated in Special Olympics. He loved to be out and around in the community and at Tim Hortons, and never missed a chance to be with friends at parties and gatherings. A Celebration of John’s life will be held at 11 am, on Friday, February 1 at Bethel Pentecostal Church, Ottawa. Memorial in memory of John may be made to Christian Horizons (www.christian-horizons.org).
