John Page

PAGE John Godfrey

July 8, 1924 – May 23, 2012

A devoted husband to his wife Ann of 47 years and a loving father to his sons Roy, Jeffrey, and Russell, his six grandchildren and great grand-daughter.

John served in the Royal Air Force from 1943 to 1947. Commissioned as Pilot Officer and later ranked as Flying Officer. Posted to 31 Squadron in Burma and later posted to Indonesia and then to Ceylon.

He immigrated to Canada in 1947 and was employed by the City of Edmonton as Supervisor of Surveyors until 1956 when he moved to Vancouver. There he joined the City of Vancouver Engineering Department until his retirement in 1983. John and Ann moved to Saltspring Island in 1988. John will be remembered for his honour and integrity, his compassion, sense of humour and especially his love for sailing. His ashes will be scattered at sea and no service by request. Also known as a warm and welcoming host it was his wish that his friends and neighbours join the family for an informal gathering at his home on Saltspring on June 1st at 2 p.m. Our heartfelt thanks go to Dr. Beaver, doctors, nurses and staff at Lady Minto Hospital for their excellent care and to the many friends who have given their support. In lieu of flowers donations, if desired, may be made to either the Heart and Stroke Foundation or Cancer Research.
