WHITE, John Douglas

It is with deepest sorrow that we announce the passing of John Douglas White. Born in New Westminster, February 20, 1941, passed away in the early hours of June 6, 2010, after a courageous year long battle with cancer, with his family by his side. A long time resident of Pitt Meadows, he leaves to mourn, Sally, his loving wife, daughter Joanne (Brent), son John Jr. (Nadia), five grandchildren, Cameron, Curtis, Sarah, Justin and Jaclyn. And more friends than most people could hope for. He served in the RCN for 9 years, then joined CP Air in 1970. He was the manager of line maintenance for many years. Predeceased by his father John (1952), sister Sharon (1999) and his mother Mildred (2001).

Big of heart, adventurous and gregarious, he touched many lives in his 69 years. A special Thank you to the staff at Mission Hospice and the staff at the McKenney Creek Hospice for all their care. A memorial service will be held at the Garden Hill Funeral Chapel, 11765 224th St. Maple Ridge, B.C. at 1pm, June 19th. In lieu of flowers a donation to the Ridge Meadows Hospice Society, or the Canadian Cancer Society would be appreciated.
