It is with deep sadness that we announce on February 15, 2021, with his loving wife by his side, John Hydrochuk passed away at home after a courageous four year battle with cancer.
John leaves behind his wife Judy of 53 years, five children, Michael, Daniel (Cherryl), Joseph (Christie), Cheryl (Todd), and Nicole (Tom), fourteen grandchildren and one great-grandchild, and sister Shirley (Gary).
John was predeceased by his parents, William and Mary, and sisters, Marie, Jean and Judy, and his beloved dog Lady.
John shared many wonderful years with Judy at their cabin in St. Ambroise, where he was known to enjoy a cold beer around the fire. He also enjoyed travelling, fishing and playing the lotto. John loved nothing more then spending time with his family and all his grandkids.
John started his own business, Fox Insulation, 17 years ago. His family would like to thank all his staff and everyone who helped them succeed.
Also, a BIG thank you to Dr. Kim and all the staff at the Victoria Cancer Centre.

John you were a brave man
and so dearly loved

A Celebration of Life will follow at a later date.

  • It is hard to imagine a time in life without someone who has been part of your life for all of it. John and Judy have been friends with my parents forever it seems. I remember being so excited as a child knowing we were going to the Hydrochuk's on a Saturday evening or they were coming to our house. Usually turned into a sleepover with Cheryl for me! We always had so much fun! There are times in life where we go months or even years without seeing each other but when we do see each other, nothing has changed. Old dear friends are just old dear friends. The Hydrochuk clan will always be forever friends to me! I will miss seeing John! He was a great man! My condolences to the whole family for their loss! - Posted by: Tracy Cosser (Forever Friends) on: Feb 23, 2021

  • I will always hold dear and never forget the memories and wisdom John has left with me. He was one of the hardest working men I’ve met with a heart of gold, John was an amazing boss who taught me a lot of life skills and gave me a career with fox insulation. John always had the answer to any problem, he would be there to help anyone he knew anytime to help fix something and definitely give advice. You will be deeply missed John (boss).
