John Patrick LeGrow

The family of John Patrick LeGrow is deeply saddened to announce his sudden passing on June 2, 2018.

John is survived by his loving partner, Carolyn, his brothers, Lynn (Sue) and Dan (Lana), his sisters, Sharron and Laura, his three children, Justin, Jeff, and Kristel, his two grandchildren, Dylan and Scarlett and many nieces and nephews that he loved dearly.

John was born in Toronto on August 29, 1948, to the late Audrey Dewey and Osborne LeGrow. He had a passion for travel at a young age and got to see a lot of the world before settling down. In 1975 at 27 years old he married who would later become the mother of his children (Dagmar). He began working for Loomis Couriers in 1981 after he moved to Nanaimo and stayed with them until he later retired.

John’s friendly, outgoing and gentle nature brought stimulating conversations to whoever was fortunate enough to meet him. His smile, wit and contagious laughter will be greatly missed by his family, friends and the community that surrounded him.

An open house to celebrate John’s life will be held Saturday, June 16th, from 1:00 p.m. – 5:00 p.m. at 1012 Thunderbird Dr. Nanaimo, BC.

In lieu of flowers, we request you make a donation to Doctor’s without borders, a charity that John regularly supported.
