In Celebration of
John Ahrens
February 5, 1945 –
June 4, 2021
John Ahrens passed away on the evening of June 3rd, following a severe stroke suffered six weeks earlier. He was 76-year-old and left peacefully, with his wife by his side. Despite this painful loss, his family takes comfort in the fact that he lived a happy life, surrounded by loving family and close friends.
John was an avid reader, as well as a music lover whose eclectic record and CD collection covered all genres and numbered in the hundreds. He was also an athlete who could excel in any sport:
swimming, squash, and soccer. His passion, however, was tennis, a sport he enjoyed at the Baie-D’Urfé Tennis Club with his many tennis buddies. In addition to being an accomplished tennis player, John was President and then Treasurer of the Club, and was particularly proud of having been instrumental in remodeling the tennis clubhouse and ensuring its successful completion in 2002. Another love of his was found through the lenses of his many cameras. Capturing and discussing the ultimate photo was another of his life-long passions.
During his working years, John was involved in a number of mining projects through his company Lambda Research. He was also interested in the economy and had an exceptional understanding of the stock market. His training as a mathematician and his scientific mind were reflected in many aspects of his daily activities: his search for the perfect version of a song, his efforts to perfect his photography techniques, his continuous improvements of his tennis serve, and often his choice of words in a philosophical debate.
John was also a globetrotter, whose business travels took him to India, Australia, Europe, and Northern Canada. Recently, his preference tended towards more leisurely trips at southern resorts, where he could enjoy the ocean and the rum. In March 2021, he would have enjoyed a ten-day trip to Cuba, were it not for the havoc wreaked by Covid and the ensuing halts on travel. He was anxiously waiting for normal life and travel to resume, not just for Cuba, but for a long overdue trip to Germany, to visit his sister and extended family.
John leaves behind his wife, Nadia, his three sons, Andreas, Martin, and Thomas, his sister, Maria, his nephews, Thomas and Kai, and his nieces, Nina, Anne-Marie, and Michelle. He also leaves a solid circle of long-time friends, with whom he shared many events and adventures over the years. He is sorely missed and fondly remembered. Rest In Peace, John (aka Johnny, Johann, and Dad).
