BIFFARD, John Edward went to be with the Lord on September 2nd, 2010 peacefully at his home at the age of 78. After a long, hard fought battle with cancer, he is now without pain and smiling down on us. John is survived by his loving wife, Sadie, and daughter, Jodi (Floyd) Ryan. He also leaves behind his two grandsons, Reese and Ayden Ryan, who will miss all of grandpa's superhero comic stories. Also left to mourn are his siblings: Wilmer (Loretta) Biffard, Jean (John) Johnson, Jim (Ailene) Biffard, Betty McFarlane, Ruby Baker, and Bill (Brenda) Biffard, and numerous nieces and nephews. He had a passionate love of country music and a very witty sense of humour. In many Kelowna hearts John will be known as the "Best Santa EVER". A small, private graveside service was held on September 8th, 2010 at Lakeview Memorial Gardens Cemetery. "I have fought the good fight, I have finished the race, I have kept the faith." Arrangements entrusted to Valleyview Funeral Home, Honoured Provider of Dignity Memorial (250) 765-3147.
