John Armstrong, superlative human being, everyone’s favourite uncle and resident died on February 13, 2020 at ninety-one years of age.
John worked hard his whole life as a logger, road construction worker, tire guy, and propane truck driver. He owned C&S Tire Shop in Williams Lake from 1961 to 1975. Hethentook his family on a year long adventure to New Zealand and upon returning to Canada settled in Lac La Hache to live in the house he and his friends Kon and Dean built. Lac La Hache was where the fish beckoned summer and winter, and many great slalom skis were to be had on the lake. Dad’s last move was to Kamloops where he carried out his retirement plan to serve the church. Dad’s faith was everything to him, he took deep solace in the prayers and communion, and served his faith community to the best of his ability.
He was predeceased by his wife Bernice, and is survived by his daughters June and Susan.
Prayers will be recited on Thursday, February 20, 2020 at 7:00 p.m. in Our Lady of Perpetual Help Catholic Church, Kamloops BC. The Funeral Mass will be celebrated at OLPH on Friday, February 21 at 11:00 a.m.
