John Joe Wycesany

February 3, 1944 - April 10, 2013


It is with great sadness that we announce the sudden passing of John Joseph Wycesany, 69, of Nelson, BC on April 9, 2013.
He was born to Anna and Jimmie Wycesany on February 3, 1944 in Nelson, BC and graduated from L.V. Rogers in 1962.
John was a lover of classic cars, and as a member of the Road Kings you would often see him driving through town in one of his favorite classics.
John was also well known internationally as an artist. He would look forward to the opportunity to show off his works locally with one of his “Garden and Art Shows”.
He loved animals and was known to spoil Puck for Luck, his cocker spaniel, so much that he refused to go on Baker Street because they wouldn’t let Pucky there.
John will be sadly missed by all those that knew and loved him.
In lieu of flowers or cards, we are requesting that donations be made to the S.P.C.A. or the Kootenay Lake Hospital.

I am sad to hear of John’s passing.
Many fond childhood memories come to mind and I was happy to reconnect with John at L.V. Roger’s 35th High School Reunion.
May he rest in peace.

RIP, Johnny. You were taken a little early. I have tons of memories of all our get-togethers as children/teens playing hide-and-go-seek, baseball, birthday parties, making forts in the winter in the 1950s.

Relation: childhood friend

Sorry to hear of John’s sudden passing but I knew he had been ill for some time. Last spoke to him at the car show in Nelson last Sept. Don’t know if he has any surviving relatives?

I have many childhood memories of us. I still have the picture of us in his yard, the most beautiful flower gardens in Rosemont, sitting in a wheel barrow, holding kittens at the age of 4. I also have a picture of us at grade 10 initiation. And many fun times in between. Rest in Peace, Johnny!!

We are so sorry to hear about John’s passing. We always enjoyed reminiscing with him at the LVR reunions.

From: Steve and Patricia Goldsmith
Relation: neighbourhood friends

John and I , Arlene, Leana, Bob, Manfred, Joan, Grace, Faye, Jackie, and many others played ball on most summer evenings. John and I remained friends all through the years.

He was an enthusiastic collector of the 1960 cars, and had a fine collection.

Rest in peace my friend.
