John Gerald Aldrich

May 21, 1915July 11, 2011

Mr. John Gerald Aldrich Born May 21, 1915, peacefully passed away July 11, 2011 at Lions Gate Hospital in North Vancouver B.C. John is survived by his wife Ruth Julia, sons Philip and David, daughter Jane, four grandchildren & seven great grandchildren. John was a devoted husband whose greatest joy was his family. His passion was to understand the workings of the world, and act as the catalyst to his children’s exploration of life. A long time resident of West Vancouver, the closest he could get to heaven was strolling the beach at Ambleside, or hiking the local mountains. His soul remains in the woods, and in the hearts of those who had the privilege to be a part of this exceptional man’s life. A Celebration of John's Life will be held at Hollyburn Funeral Home on Thursday, July 14, 2011 @ 2:00 p.m. For those wishing to share a memory of John, please visit www.hollyburnfunerals.com.

Hello Ruth And Jane!

Today is the 18th Of July, and I just received the notice of you husbands/father's passing. What a pity that I could not have met him. But I have an idea what he was like from my times spent with you Jane, and at least now I have had a chance to see him courtesy of your shared photos. I am glad for you Ruth that you were allowed to have him in your life for so long. Cherish all your memories---even the less pleasant ones---for they all form the tapestry that was your life together with him.
You folks are always in my prayers. Much love and hugs,

Gary N. Jackson
