REEVE; John Norman

Born January 2, 1933 in Regina, Saskatchewan and died peacefully on November 15, 2015 in Surrey, BC. With sadness but with peace, we share the passing of John Norman Reeve into glory with the Lord. Heaven’s gate opened wide for him. John’s life exemplified the love, grace, wisdom and humility of Jesus. John was the beloved husband to June for 59 years and beloved father to Ken (Brenda) and Kim (Brian), loving grandfather to Lindsay (Anatoli), Jeff (Ava), Jordan, Justin and Jessica (Darrel) and great-grandfather to Yuri, age 5. John loved his family and friends, his neighbours and colleagues. He made connections with people quietly but easily. Always willing to help others, he supported many ministries, and was active in their church. John enjoyed motor-homing, travel, and was known as a “dog-whisperer”. John played some professional hockey in earlier years and remained a lifelong fan of the game. John spent many years in the building industry as a contractor and consultant. Our family wishes to thank the doctors, caregivers and volunteers of Peace Arch Hospital and White Rock South Surrey Hospice Society for all their care and concern for John. A Celebration of Life will be held in memory of John on Sunday, November 29 at 3:00 pm in the afternoon at Peace Portal Alliance Church, 15128 – 27B Avenue, South Surrey (southwest corner of King George Boulevard and 152nd Avenue). In lieu of flowers, donations in memory of John may be made to White Rock South Surrey Hospice Society or Parkinson Society British Columbia. We will miss John but he is with the Lord he loves. Faith in God comforts us, for we know that we will see him again in eternity. Psalm 116:15
