John Paul BAN

John Paul Ban

Feb 1, 1968 – May 27, 2016

John is remembered by his sister Katarina Rothe and his many friends as a high-spirited, adventurous and loyal brother and friend.

In his earlier years, John lived in Alberta and Kamloops, but found his true home when he moved to Saltspring Island in 1996 and started his hair styling business. He formed warm, loyal and dependable friendships with the people around him; he often bonded with people over a mutual joy for outdoor adventure. With his patient and mindful manner, he became an amazing nature photographer, portraying his love of the environment and outdoor activities. His easy going, agreeable and non-competitive nature made him easy to be around and fun to spend time with in the outdoors. Nature was his religion. The true business hours of his salon were ‘all cloudy days’ because during most of the sunny days, he would be found on the slopes of Mount Maxwell or somewhere out there on his bike or in his kayak. He will be sadly missed by all who knew him.
