Obituary for John Falgan Groenestein

John Falgan Groenestein
July 23, 1944 - February 2, 2024

John went to his Heavenly Home at the age of 79.

John was born in England and emigrated to Canada in July 1967. He worked for the Manitoba Telephone Company before leaving the "Frozen North" for Toronto.

He graduated from the Universities of Toronto and York and continued his working life as a teacher and finally an Addictions Counsellor.

John loved his dogs - especially Nipper and Skye. He was a teller of jokes and a fan of Monty Python. His motto was "Always look on the bright side of life."

At John's request, Cremation has taken place. A Celebration of Life will be held at a later date.

As an expression of sympathy, donations to Innisfree and Lisaard House would be appreciated by the family (2375 Homer Watson Blvd., Kitchener N2P 0E9) in John's name.

Arrangements entrusted to the Henry Walser Funeral Home, Kitchener, 519-749-8467.
