John Weston PICKERING

JOHN WESTON PICKERING

17 July 1931 – 21 March 2016

Eldest son of Jack and Kate Pickering, John is survived by Claire, his wife of 60 years; their children Mary, Jennifer, and Michael and their spouses Ron, Colin, and Catherine; his grandchildren of whom he was immensely proud, James, Patrick, Sam, David, Robbie, Josh, Annalise, and Olivia; his brother Tim; nephew Nigel; niece Sarah; and large extended family.

After a long and healthy life well lived and well loved, John died unexpectedly and peacefully at Salt Spring Island, BC, with Claire by his side.

John gave his family a charmed life. He deeply loved them and they loved him deeply in return. All his life, his priorities were his family, his friends, his church, and his community. He gave himself to all of them with generosity, good humour, and grace.

A celebration of John’s life will be held at All Saints Anglican Church, 110 Park Drive, Salt Spring Island at 2:30 on April 2nd, 2016.

In lieu of flowers, donations to the Salt Spring Foundation, the MS Society of Canada, or the charity of your choice would be appreciated.
