John Russell Bailey

Passed away unexpectedly on September 11, 2012.

John was born in Widness, England on April 15, 1943. He emigrated to Canada with his family in 1955. He attended school in Fairbridge and Duncan and then later worked at the Crofton Pulp Mill for many years.

He married Margaret in October 1964 and they raised their family in the many houses John built over the years.

John was an avid hunter, fisherman and loved to entertain us with his unique stories about his many trips.

His sharp wit will be sadly missed by his family.

John was predeceased by his parents Jack (1999) and Nancy (2003) and his wife of 44 years, Margaret (2008). He leaves behind his sons David (Franne) and Brian; grandchildren Ethan and Victoria; sister Jackie and brother Richard.
