Sadly we announce the death of John Wilson, at home in Oshawa after a long illness.
He will be remembered lovingly by his father, Jed Wilson (Sally), and sister Carolyn Wilson, and was predeceased by his mother, Jane Wilson.
John spent a long career as a work leader at Dupont Canada and especially enjoyed working outdoors managing train deliveries to the plant.
John treasured the friendship of many people from his childhood, work and outdoor activities.
Many thanks to John Czepek; Barbara, Eileen and Margaret Egerer; Gary and Sue Heron; Brian Kot; Greg Kroetsch; Eldon Smith; Les, Patricia and Thom Waters; and Dave Verwoerd for years of good times and later support to allow John to stay in his home.
The gracious, respectful assistance of PSWs Michelle and Denise will not be forgotten. In place of a funeral, a private celebration will be held.
Those who knew John are welcome to contact those mentioned here for details.
Donations to the Humane Society of Durham Region would be appreciated.
Arrangements entrusted to the OSHAWA FUNERAL HOME, 847 King Street West, (905-721-1234).
