On October 25, 2021, at the age of 86, John McKillop passed away at home, with his wife of 38 years Joann by his side.
John was born in Toronto, Ontario and was privileged to have lived in many great cities across the country before moving to Winnipeg, Manitoba.
John's love of adventure and travel, together with his quick wit and sense of humour, allowed him to forge many treasured lifelong friendships.
He was a terrific story teller, a poet, a voracious reader, a lover of all sports, a current affairs junkie, a BBQ master, a lifelong seeker of knowledge, a consummate entertainer who was dedicated to serving his community and the charities held close to his heart.
John's career in the lumber industry allowed him to travel extensively throughout Canada and the United States. The colleagues and cast of characters he met allowed John to expand his cultural understanding and appreciation for the diverse North American peoples and geographies.
John was the last of his McKillop clan in Canada. He has family in Manitoba, Ontario and Florida who are joined by terrific friends from coast to coast grieving his loss and recounting his jokes, stories and adventures.
The family would like to thank Dr. Joanna Webb for her extraordinarily kind and compassionate care of John and Joann throughout this chapter of his life journey.
At John's request, there will not be a funeral service.
In lieu of flowers, memorial donations may be made to a charity of your choice.

"I shall pass this way but once; any good that I can do or any kindness I can show to any human being; let me do it now.
Let me not defer nor neglect it,
for I shall not pass this way again."
- Etienne de Grellet
