CALICH, John (1928-2008)
John passed away on June 18th, peacefully and with his family by his side, as a result of cancer and heart failure. Beloved husband to Anita. Loving father to Norma (Bill), Mike (Adriane) and Rick. Dear Grandpa to Joel, Dean, Marta, Hannah and Andrew. John was a devoted family man who worked hard and lived simply, with honesty and integrity. Throughout his life, John worked with his hands. After many years in the sheet metal and air balance industries, he dedicated himself to a career as a self-taught craftsman and became renowned for his fine hand made briar pipes, which are treasured by collectors throughout the world. John will be remembered by those who knew him best, for his love of family, his talent, modesty, independent spirit, and especially his wry sense of humour. Telemarketers may now rest easier, knowing that John will no longer be answering the phone. The family wishes to most sincerely thank the many dedicated physicians, nurses and others who have treated John, including most recently Drs. BRADE, WAN and Andrea MOLCKOVSKY and the remarkable technicians at Princess Margaret Hospital; Doctors GUPTA, LE FEUVRE, SHARMA, PATEL, McISAAC, KING, TIU and MURTHY at the Trillium Health Centre and our longtime friend and family physician Doctor Bohdan MOLCKOVSKY. At John's request, there will be a cremation and private family ceremony. In lieu of flowers, donations would be gratefully accepted in John's name, to the Stephen Lewis Foundation, the Cancer Society or another charity of your choice. Funeral arrangements entrusted to Turner and Porter 'Peel Chapel' (905)-279-7663. Online condolences at: www.turnerporter.ca
