October 18, 1960 – June 29, 2020
With great sadness we announce the passing of John Vincent Donahue. Johnny will always be loved by his parents, Howard and Stella Donahue, sisters; Wendy Harker (Brent), Judi Clarke (Dave), Kelly Eddy (Mike), brother Jim Donahue (Deb), his nephews and nieces, as well as our large extended family. John’s deepest love was for his kids and leaves behind his son Jesse and daughter Sarah. John loved his children profoundly and was so proud of them and always had them in his thoughts.
Born in Duncan, BC, John spent his childhood growing up at Caycuse camp on Cowichan Lake. After attending high school in Lake Cowichan, John moved to Fort St. John, and there he met Cindy. John and Cindy started a family and had two beautiful children. John so much enjoyed life with his family of 4 with hunting, camping and many more outdoor adventures in the north with their move to Mackenzie, BC. Life was good for so many years, creating many special memories with his children that they will have to remember their dad by.
Sometimes in life, other forces take over, which lead to John being on his own and eventually, he found his way back to Duncan to be close to his parents and family here. His health took a turn and he was diagnosed with cancer in the last month.
A family gathering will be held at a later date. John loved hunting and the outdoors and will be deeply missed every fall on hunting trips with his mom and dad. We know his spirit will be pointing the way.
Johnny, you left us too soon and there will be a missing piece in our hearts until we meet again.
