God saw you were getting tired,
And a cure was not to be.
So He put His arms around you
And whispered, "Come to Me."
A golden heart stopped beating,
Hard working hands now rest.
God broke our hearts to prove to us
He only takes the best."
John REID, born in Dutton, Ontario, passed away in London on April 15, 2005 in his 75th year. John is survived by his beloved wife of 52 years, Myrtle Helen REID (née WHYTOCK.) He will be dearly missed by his four sons and their wives, Rob and Barb REID of Princeton; Scott and Sandy REID of London; Greg and Marianne REID of London; and Chris and Pam REID of London. "Grandpa" will remain in the hearts of his 7 grandchildren, Heather, Liz, Kayla, Jake, Bryce, Allison and Adam. He will also be missed by his siblings, George and Isabel REID, Jeanette HILLS, Mary and Tom DOWNIE, Leonard and Dani REID, and sister-in-law Sandy REID, and his brothers/sisters-in-laws Jim and Joan WHYTOCK, and Muriel and Claire EVERITT. John is predeceased by his parents Clifford and Bella Maria (ENABELLE) REID, his sister Beverly ZOLLER, and brother Jim REID.
John lived a full life, spending most of his working life in the foundry business, with George White and Gudgeon Brothers. He was a member of the Masonic Temple for almost 50 years. John will be remembered for working with his hands and willingly helping others fix and repair things - there wasn't much that he couldn't take apart and put back together. He had a love for being outdoors and took great solace in gardening. John also received much joy from his parrot, Hawkeye. Having battled with lung cancer, John and his family would like to extend a special thanks to all of his caregivers who did so many things to help. Those wishing to pay their respects may do so on Sunday from 2-4 and 7-9 p.m. at Forest Lawn Memorial Chapel, 1997 Dundas Street East (at Wavell), London. Funeral service will be on Monday, April 18, 2005 at 11 a.m. In lieu of flowers, donations to the Victorian Order of Nurses Canada or Hospice of London would be gratefully appreciated.
