DEMERS

DEMERS, JEAN WILFRED (JOHN), died peacefully on April 8, 2017 at the age of 64 in Nelson, B.C. after a brave battle with cancer. He spent the better part of his life in the Nelson area where he could indulge his passion for geology and prospecting. After working on the maintenance crew for the C.P.R. for several years, he was finally able to wander the hills and mountains of the interior of B.C. John collected semi precious gems and other interesting rocks which he polished and turned into jewelry. During those years, he held various positions with several mining companies and spent a winter with the Diavek Diamond mine in the NWT. Less than a year ago, John travelled to Iceland where he fulfilled a lifelong dream to explore the volcanoes and unique geology of that country.

Although he enjoyed a mostly solitary life, John still had time for his many friends and family both in and around Nelson and in Lethbridge where he was raised and received his schooling. He had the soul of a philosopher and the heart of a mountain man and will be missed by his sisters; Louise McTaggart (Don) near Edson, Alberta; Jocelyne Edwards of Lethbridge, Alberta; and Carole Demers (Wade Hutchins) of Fort Macleod, Alberta. He is also survived by many nieces, nephews and cousins as well as aunts and uncles. John was predeceased by his parents, Andre and Jeannine Demers and his brother George Demers, his grandparents and many aunts and uncles.

There will be a celebration of John’s life in both Lethbridge and Nelson at later dates.
