John Andrew Swinderman

December 22, 1944 - June 3, 2017


It is with heavy hearts we announce the sudden passing of John Andrew Swinderman on June 3, 2017 at his home in Winlaw, BC. John was born on December 22, 1944 to parents James and Mary Swinderman in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania. He moved to Canada in his 20’s and began a long fruitful career with Canada Post until his retirement after many years of service. John was granted Canadian Citizenship, a fact he was very proud of and truly encompassed what it meant to be a Canadian. He was a beloved brother, uncle and friend to all who knew him. He will be greatly missed and forever remembered by his surviving family; sister Lorraine Brown and husband Junnie, nephews Leo, Buddy and Andrew Gaertner as well as 6 great nephews.
May God bless him and keep him.
There will be no public service held in accordance with his wishes. Cremation has taken place.
