JOHNNY CANUCK

Nov 9, 1941 – Jun 15, 2012

Pathfinder, country person and citizen. Artist, steward, defender of land, community and country. Dancer, sage, friend.

Founding father of many farm organizations, and source of inspiration for many. Passionate lover of life, gentleman and clown.

John Daniel Wilcox’s legacy is vast and deep and bright. He devoted his life to service to his country, countless volunteer hours doing his duty as citizen and organic farmer to create a vision that sustains all life. He always led by example, by his good sense of what was right and by showing what hard work and hard play gave to make a man shine. And shine he did!

Surviving him are his brother Jim Wilcox, daughter Lisa Wilcox, first wife Judith Stuart, daughters Samantha Wilcox and Emma Rubatscher (Jon), second wife Lynda Wilcox, stepson Dan Brooke (Erica), granddaughter Megan Brooke, partner Sue Earle, stepson Eland Bronstein and daughter Ella Bronstein.

A celebration of his life will be held at the Fulford Hall on Canada Day, July 1, starting at 3 pm, dancing and howling at the moon to follow.

For those who wish to make a personal farewell, John will be at the farm today between 3 pm and 5 pm. Bring something with which you wish to toast him. Try to carpool. Drop off area up by the house.
