Obituary for John Joseph Collett

John Collett succumbed to cancer on Saturday June 8th, 2019 at 2:10pm. He had just turned 49 on June 6th.

His life’s love was his cooking (and man could he cook!!) closely followed by his love for his niece Rachel, his “parents” dog Montana, and the rest of his family. The memories he carried closest to his heart were his years in Corfu and working at Roda Oasis Hotel & Apartments. The friendships he made there were everlasting, the owners becoming like a second family.

His favorite things included his love of Eagles (specifically bald or screaming Eagles), his younger years playing lacrosse in New West & then Killarney, and his years in school playing soccer.

He is survived by his loving parents Lorne & Sybil Collett, his sister Arlene Collett, and his niece Rachel Collett.

At the request of the family, please do not send flowers (allergies). If you would like to do something in John’s memory, please donate to St Michael’s Hospice in Burnaby where they treated John so wonderfully, or donate to a charity of your choice.

Service Details:
Please note parking at church is limited. We recommend using the parkade located at 4th Street and Columbia. For those who are traveling by transit, Columbia Station (Expo Line) will be the closest SkyTrain station.

I lost a great friend, but the universe received a new beautiful star, may Johns soul fly high like an eagle. I am honored and blessed to have known you John, you where truly a blessing in many lives and I will miss you. I will surely miss the presence of a truly lovable and kind, compassionate person. Remembering his wonderful and gentle soul will forever remain in our hearts. After the tears have dried and the goodbyes have been said, all we have is memories that we’ve shared with our loved ones engraved in our hearts. A person that departs from this earth never truly leaves, for they are still alive in our hearts, through us, they live on.
My condolences to Johns family and friends. May our Lord bless and comfort you during this time of grief.
