John Hill

It is with great sadness that we announce the passing of (Herbert?Arthur) John Hill on July 9, 2012.  Born on May 25, 1927 in England, John spent part of his life with the NAAFI, moving to the Rolls Royce Company where he proudly displayed their logo on everything he owned, including his latest set of wheels – his walker!  John and June immigrated to Sooke in 2002 and fell in love with the town and the people.  John had a carefree way about him and attracted new friends wherever he went.  He will be missed by his brown eyed soulmate June, son Martin (Janice) Sooke BC, daughter Alison (Nigel) England, sisters Mary and Nancy, England, grandchildren Ryan (Whitney), Kerri, Timothy, Ben, Sam, Chris, and great grandchildren Alexa, Tyson, Kaleb and Toby. We would like to thank Dr Saunders and his staff for the care and compassion given to John over the past decade, and the staff at Ayre Manor for making the past four years his home.  In leu of flowers, donations can be made to the Heart and Stroke Foundation or to the Sooke Seniors Centre.  A celebration of life will be held at Ayre Manor on August 8, 2012 from 2:00 pm to 4:00 pm. Special thanks to the nurses of Victoria General Hospital, 6C North for their care. Condolences may be offered to the family at www.mccallbros.com.
