Obituary of John Surgeoner
John passed away in peace while in the presence of family on March 25, 2021, at the age of 74. Preceded in death by his wife Linda (2013). Loving father of Jay and Justin (Christine). Dear brother of Bill in California and Ron of Niagara Falls. Further survived by nieces, nephews, and many relatives throughout Canada and the United States. Born in St. Davids and an entrepreneur at heart, John operated St. Davids Auto Services Station for 30 years receiving the highest awards of excellence from Petro-Canada. John maintained a lifelong commitment to volunteerism serving 40 years as a firefighter, rising to the rank of Chief with Niagara District #2 and as a member of the St. Davids Lions Club. After his retirement, John and Linda moved to their cottage on Lake-of-Bays where they spent summers hosting family & friends. They would spend winters in Venice, Florida enjoying new-found friendships, NASCAR races, and of course his Buffalo Bills. A special thank you to the staff at Huntsville District Memorial Hospital and Hotel Dieu Shaver in St. Catharines. At John’s request cremation has taken place and arrangements have been entrusted with Essentials Cremation and Burial Services. A Celebration of Life will follow at a later date. In lieu of flowers and gifts, donations may be made to the Canadian Cancer Society. Online condolences may be shared on John’s tribute page found at EssentialsNiagara.com.
