It is with heavy hearts that we announce the passing of John (Jean) M.G. Tremblay on November 13, 2019, at the age of 93 years. John was born on June 9, 1926 in Granby, Quebec. He moved to SK, with his family, at the age of two and spent most of his years farming in the Radville area. At the age of 17, he attended welding school. John was an accomplished welder and, during WWII, worked on ships in Prince Rupert and on tanks in Montreal. In his 20’s, he custom combined in the southern U.S. John was always an optimistic and progressive farmer. He actively farmed until his 89th year and completed 77 harvests. Education was extremely important to John and he passed this belief on to his children and grandchildren. John will be lovingly remembered by his children, Jacqueline, Bernard, Michael (Margaret), Sharon (Murray), Marilyn (Peter), Rhonda (Kim) and 11 grandchildren (Eric, Janelle, Sarah, Lisa, Deanna, Marcel, Clare, Tess, Jessica, Selena and Alyssa) and brother, Albert.
