John Henri Van Goor
February 28, 1940 – February 13, 2021
Dr. John Van Goor passed away peacefully on a Saturday afternoon in Victoria, BC.
He enjoyed a rewarding career as a general physician for 53 years in Calgary, retiring so he could help care for his ailing wife, Linda (predeceased 2016). As a dedicated physician, he worked tirelessly for his patients. Being a doctor filled his life with purpose and he was grateful for the role he played in caring for the lives of others. When he was not working, he enjoyed travelling, fishing, playing chess, backgammon and smoking his cigars. Dr. John Van Goor is survived by his children Fred (Stacy), Raelene (Craig), Katherine (Allan) and John (Bobbi) as well as six grandchildren.
He will be missed by his family, friends and patients. Please pass on any thoughts or condolences to - firstname.lastname@example.org. In lieu of flowers, please make a contribution to your local SPCA.
