June 26, 1935 - March 17, 2021

It is with great sadness that we announce the passing of John Choptian, at the age of 85.
He will forever be remembered by Evelyn, his loving wife of 64 years, his son Eric, son Ralph (Therese), daughter Sandy (Paul); his favourite barber granddaughter Lindsay and his many other grandchildren.
Dad had a 25 year career in the Armed Forces as an IE technician. After he retired, he continued his skill with Perimeter Airlines and Goulet Aircraft Supply.
He had many hobbies which included barbershop quartet singing, the church choir and woodcarving. Dad shared many of his carvings with family and friends. When we look at these, we can only think fondly of him.
We love you and miss you dearly dad.
In lieu of flowers, a donation can be made to any animal rescue of your choice, as dad was a true animal lover.
