Mr. John Gerald Aldrich
Born May 21, 1915, peacefully passed away July 11, 2011 at Lions Gate Hospital in North Vancouver B.C.
John is survived by his wife Ruth Julia, sons Philip and David, daughter Jane, four grandchildren & seven great grandchildren. John was a devoted husband whose greatest joy was his family. His passion was to understand the workings of the world, and act as the catalyst to his children's exploration of life.
A long time resident of West Vancouver, the closest he could get to heaven was strolling the beach at Ambleside, or hiking the local mountains.
His soul remains in the woods, and in the hearts of those who had the privilege to be a part of this exceptional man's life.
A Celebration of John's Life will be held at Hollyburn Funeral Home on Thursday, July 14, 2011 @ 2:00 p.m.
