John Barry Sitter

John Barry Sitter passed away December 23, 2014, at his home after his courageous battle with cancer. John was born

December 24, 1941 in Moose Jaw, Saskatchewan. Sadly, he was a day short of his 73 Birthday. Predeceased by his partner, Sheridon Armstrong; his cherished mother, Doris, his father John and his special nephew, Kent. John will be greatly missed by his three children with Donna Taylor-Sitter; Susan, Scott (Brenda), John aka JB (Letitia); his nine grandchildren, Jeffrey, Taylor Anne, Sarah, Paul, Claire, John, Rosalie, Alexandra and Sophia. John was the oldest of five, Gary, Sharyn, Anna Marie (Gordon), and Eloise (Jim). His 10 nieces and nephews will all miss and remember the fun times every summer at Nana’s. John will be lovingly remembered by many relatives and friends. A special mention to his cousins Susan and Jimmy, whom he adored. John spent a successful career in radio, starting with CHAB in Moose Jaw. He moved often with the parent group of Moffat Communications and kept a trusted colleague close by. He was an athlete playing professional hockey in his younger days and once owned the Moose-Jaw Canucks. He retired in Sooke, BC, a picturesque community but longed for the wide open spaces of his beloved prairies. We would like to thank the staff at Victoria General Hospital, Sooke Hospice and a special thanks to the QR nurse, Janet. Without their calm competent assistance, Dad would not have been able to return home. His family will be forever grateful.
