Thank you will never be enough words to all the Healthcare Doctors, Nurses and their staff, Brooklin Medical Centre, Lakeridge Health Oshawa Hospital, Toronto General Hospital, St. Michaels Hospital for these past 19 plus years, that made it possible to keep him with us, though his Rheumatoid Arthritis Disease, Heart Disease, Vascular Disease and Pulmonary Fibrosis Disease and his many surgeries.
The care and compassion he and his family received these past 4 months from The HealthCare Services, to enable us to keep him at home is beyond words.
Palliative Care Doctor McAllister and nurse Amber, they were both here within minutes of his passing, we will forever be grateful.
John so enjoyed his time with the Auxilary Whitby OPP Detachment in the late 60's, a member of Oshawa Bowling leauges for many years, coaching kids in Youth Bowling, Glen Stewart Park hockey and baseball teams, his many hunting and fishing trips to Northern Ontario with his (late father-in-law Elmer Treen) and brother-in-law Norman Treen.
We both looked so forward when sister Patti would call and plan our trips up North to Haileybury, Niagara Falls and the Casino's.
