ATKINS, John Bertram - Passed away on Friday, February 19, 2021 at Mackenzie Health Hospital surrounded by love and prayers from his family at the young age of 84.
He suffered a heart attack and other complications (non-COVID related).
He is deeply loved and will be forever missed by his beloved wife Cathy. He was a loving father to Christina (Patrick), Wendy (David), Joanne and Tracy.
He was predeceased by his son Steven.
He was a dear “Grandpa” to Taylor (Devon), Spencer, Mallory, Jacob, Maxx, Joshua and Alexandra. As well, a large extended family and circle of friends will also miss him.
The thing closest to his heart and his greatest joy was time with family.
Every year he would spend a week at Sauble Beach with his entire family enjoying the water, the sun and the togetherness.
He was fun loving, supportive, logical, responsible, positive, and proud of his loved ones. John was always giving accolades. His calm demeanour was an inspiration to all who needed perspective, even if only for a moment.
Unfortunately, due to COVID restrictions, only a private family service will take place.
Per John’s wishes, in lieu of flowers, donations in memory of John may be made to the CNIB.
The family thanks you for your thoughts and prayers at this time.
