July 25th, 1933 – October 6th, 2014
It is with great sadness we announce the passing of our dearly beloved husband, Dr. Patrick Johnston on Monday, October 6th, 2014 at the age of 81.
Pat spent the last few months of his life at Nelson Jubilee Manor where he passed away peacefully in his sleep after many years of significant health problems.
Pat was an intelligent, insightful and caring person who used his talents to help others. His love of life and gift for humor brought much joy into the lives of those around him.
There will be no funeral by request.
After cremation, his ashes will be taken to New Zealand where a memorial service will be held in Wellington to honor a much loved husband, father, brother, grandfather, uncle and great uncle.
The family would like to thank the many doctors, nurses and care-givers who attended to Pat at Nelson Jubilee Manor and Kootenay Lake Hospital also the staff at the Thompson Funeral Home.
