December 18, 1945 – May 12, 2020
elevated XvHRJ It is with great sadness that we announce the passing of John Alderdice on Tuesday May 12th, at the age of 74. Beloved husband of Judy McIlhargey. Dad to Mark (Allison), Hal (Karen) and Stephanie (Jamie). Gramps to Victoria, Steven, Lauren, Maya, Daniel and Charlie. He is survived by his siblings – Joanne (Fred), Joyce (Rod), Lori and Hal (Carol).
elevated XvHRJ John had a larger than life personality. He had a smile for everyone and was loved by anyone he met. He was the type of person who held on to, and nurtured friendships, with the longest being 69 years. And was more like a brother to his cousins. He enjoyed squash at the Valhalla Club in Etobicoke, with hydration at the Valhalla bar after the game. John was an active member of the Taverners Golf group, and enjoyed many games with his close friends. He will be missed by his morning coffee buddies, who have been meeting since the ‘70’s.
elevated XvHRJ Johns final days were in ICU and Palliative care in Oakville Trafalgar Hospital. Our thanks to the nurses for their caring service, and to the cleaners and food servers for the patience and kindness they showed.
