1931 – 2013
On Sunday, March 10, 2013, John Gnam passed away peacefully surrounded by his family at the age of 81 years.
Soft-hearted and humble, John devoted his life to his family, his God, and his fellow Jehovah’s Witnesses as a spiritual shepherd. John’s example of Christian service and integrity is a precious memory for his six children David (Judy), Dawn (Greg), Drew (Susan), Dae, Darren and Daniel (Charlene); twelve grandchildren, Jeremy (Kailey), Amber (Curtis), Ashley, Shane (Jade), Jenny (Aaron), Jared, Roxanne, Kyle, Bobby, Jacey, Jeorgia, and Joely and four great-grandchildren Mackenzie, Azaria, Phoenix and Isla. He is also remembered by his brother’s extended family, his sister-in-law Lorna DeBolt and her family, cousin Jean Ast, and David Seigo, husband of granddaughter Jacquelyn who died tragically one month ago. John was predeceased by his loving wife Lillian, his brother Frederick, and brother-in-law Roy DeBolt.
