John Constantine Petryshen passed away peacefully at his home in Bearspaw on Sunday, April 8, 2007 at the age of 66 years.
John was born in Moose Jaw, SK on September 17, 1940 and was schooled there graduating from STI in 1962. He moved to Calgary, AB soon after, where he spent all of his working years. John will be missed by many friends and associates from those years. John enjoyed camping, biking, flying and many other outdoor pursuits. If it had wings, wheels or a motor, it captured his interest and made him many friends during his lifetime.
John is survived by Dianne; their two sons Keith and Kyle; and John’s sister MaryAnn, of Moose Jaw.
