Obituary of John William Muir

MUIR, John "Jack� William

Dad passed away peacefully in Toronto on Sunday, April 10, 2005 in his 85th year. Jack was born in Vancouver to John G. and Kathleen B. Muir. Dad will be sadly missed and lovingly remembered by his six children John, Kathleen, Tom, James, June and Jocelyn and their spouses and partners. Grandpa Jack was loved dearly by his ten grandchildren Emma, Graham, Lauren, Christopher, Katie, Jennie, Mutesi, Musinga, Brooke and Bret. Dad will also be greatly missed by Gretchen McDowell and June Muir. In the last years of his life, Dad experienced declining health. However, he maintained his good spirits and ability to rejoice in life. To the staff of both Sunnybrook & Women�s and Seniors Health Centre who so lovingly cared for Dad, we are profoundly grateful.
