John Webber Saturday, 03 Oct 2020
With much sadness the family said their final goodbyes to John on October 3, 2020. He is survived by his loving wife of 50 years, Peg, his son Scott and daughter in law Stacey, his two very cherished granddaughters, Madi (Brad) and Ali, and of course Charlie his much loved dog. Also lovingly remembered by his sister in law Barb (Brian,) niece Lacey (Ryan) and their two very talented boys, Taylor and Jesse. John also leaves two sisters, Jan and Karen (Fred) as well as nephews Jamie and Haakon.
John and Peg with their young son Scott came to Merritt in 1976 from White Rock and built their home in Petit Creek. They purchased Merritt Dairy which gave John the nickname “Noca John” that stuck with him for many years. Mar-King Sales evolved which was John’s dairy products delivery business. Eventually becoming Mar-King Logistics Ltd. hauling fresh and frozen food products between BC and Alberta with tractor trailer units and multi-temp refrigerated trailers. Scott and his young family moved back to Merritt from Alberta to join his Dad in this new venture. Mar-King Vac Truck Service was next. John was then known as the “Auger Guy.” He valued all his customers and would go out of his way to help everyone with whatever problems they were having. Always going that extra mile.
John enjoyed fishing and snowmobiling with the Post crew and spent many hours helping work their beloved property out in Petit Creek. He could always be counted on to help all of their neighbors and spend any free time he had with his family. Many summer BBQ’s spent around the pool that he and Peg hosted. His famous breakfast pancakes and turkey dinner gravy will be sorely missed. John’s last year was spent fighting cancer in his own calm and private way. The family would like to thank Nicola Valley Home Care, Dr. Lyttle, Dr. Fenrich and all of the staff at the Nicola Valley General Hospital ER.
In lieu of flowers, donations can be made to the BC Cancer Agency.

Peggy, Scott & Family,
We were saddened to hear about John. There are many fond memories dating back to the 1980's when he was our "milkman" for the abc restaurant, a good friend & many a times, early morning golfing partner with Jim & a few others.
Our condolances to all of you, Sheila & Jim West.
