It is with profound sadness that the family wish to announce the passing of John Collier of Petawawa. He is survived by his wife of 54 years Dianne; sons Chris, and Trevor (Terry) and grandchildren Nick, Lexie, Sophie and Olivia. He is also survived by siblings, Judy, Thelma, Pam and Ken (Joan) all of Nova Scotia. As per John’s wishes he has been cremated. Due to Covid 19 there will be no wake or gathering. A family burial will take place at a later date. John always faced his medical challenges head on. His strength and determination defined who he was. He fought several battles but brain cancer was one he couldn’t win. Arrangements entrusted to the Murphy Funeral Home, Pembroke.
