It is with great sadness and heavy hearts we announce
the unexpected passing of João Luis on August 20, 2016
at the age of 69. Predeceased by his wife Lucy and brother
Carlos, John will be lovingly remembered by his children
Gary (Karen), Tanya (Brendan), grandchildren, Mateo, Markus,
brothers Joe, Ed, sisters Grace, Eduarda, many other
family members and friends. John was the first child of Eduardo
and Josefa, and grew up in Santa Maria, Açores. He moved to
Canada in 1963, eventually calling Vancouver home. John
especially loved the ocean and was happiest when he was on
the water. John was a generous person, always loved to share
good food, good conversation, and stories of times gone by.
