John P. Urichuck
April 29, 1950 – August 16, 2019

We lost our dear friend TOAD, on Friday, August 16 at 6pm due to medical complications from lymphoma.

TOAD was an adventurous man, born in Montreal, QC.

He worked hard in his early years with his brothers and sisters in their mother’s bakery. He later moved and spent many years travelling the golden triangle, e.g. candy trail in the Middle East.

TOAD decided to settle down on Salt Spring Island, creating an amazing network of friends and the adventurous life of an artisan gypsy.

He was skilled at foraging and bartering, always tried to make a trade. His garlic, wines, fresh veggies, and amazing meals will be missed.

TOAD would make your days interesting and leave you smiling, and maybe with a wet dog licked cheek if you were lucky.

TOAD will be fondly remembered by his cherished cat Beauty, close friends and family.
