John Winter

A note from Beverley:

To all our ‘woodturning’ friends,

Sadly……………….. John died on Wednesday at 4 pm August 30, with Medical Assistance. This means we did not wait for the illness to take him. Instead, we set a time and date of death and a team of Doctors and Nurses assisted him in dying.

John had a very aggressive and terminal cancer. We only had 6 weeks notice

There will be no service, no funeral………..Just your reminiscing some happy moments will suffice.

Beverley (& John)

    I am so sad to hear of John’s passing. An act of bravery by both of you choosing his path.
    He was a craftsman, an artisan, and one hell of a nice guy. He shared his skill and good humour with those lucky to know him. And I was fortunate to be one.
    With my deepest sympathy,

    My Dearest Beverley
    I am deeply saddened by the news of John’s passing. I appreciate the last six weeks have been difficult and challenging for you, John and your family. My thoughts and prayers are with you all.

    I have fond memories of John and his kindness in sharing his skill and knowledge. His love and devotion to you shone through him in everything he said and did. I know you will have your memories of him but I also know what a void has been left. May you find comfort in your family and friends.

    Please know that myself and Chris are thinking of you and will always be available to assist you in any way. Please to not hesitate to call.

    RIP John
    Chris & Neva

    I was shocked this morning when I read about John’s passing. I enjoyed talking to him at the meetings, and the stories he would tell when doing the project days at your house. His teaching of how to make the different tools has come in very handy. By coincidence , I just finished making a new one earlier this week and had been thinking that John wouldn’t be overly impressed with the job I did with the silver solder….but it would hold.

    My thoughts are with you.
