JOHN ADRIEN EUGENE JEANNOTTE
Peacefully, after a courageous battle with Alzheimer’s; it is with deep sadness that we announce the passing of our beloved husband, father and grandfather on Tuesday, December 9, 2014, at the age of 87 years.
Left to forever cherish John’s memory are his loving wife of 61 years, Shirley; their four children, Cheryl (Trent), Ken (Heidi), Michael (Irene), Leanne (John); 13 grandchildren; three great-grandchildren; siblings, Pete (Rita), Lorraine (Henry), Terry, Aline (Mike), Gilbert (Julie), Patsy (Bill), Josette, Mariette, and Vivianne; brothers-in-law Ken (Margaret) and Wayne; as well as many nieces and nephews. He was predeceased by his parents Patrice and Marie; brother Giles (age 18 months); brothers-in-law, Len, Jack, and Gene.
John worked for Arlington Builders for 19 years before trying his hand in the hardware business in Treherne, Manitoba, where he became a charter member of the Kinsman Club, serving in the capacity of Vice President, and then President. John returned to Winnipeg to work for the Province of Manitoba in Government Services as project manager for 21 years. He loved nothing more than a big family get together where everyone was having a great time. There were many nights where brothers and sisters would get together for a good ol’ fashioned family ho down.
