JOHN FREDERIC FAUSAK
NOV.6, 1951 – MAR.22, 2022
Born into a family of nine – seven girls and two boys, John captured the “big brother” prize. He had a huge heart which made it nearly impossible for him to refuse a request, especially from his mother or multitude of sisters. Raised on a farm, the peace and quiet of the home place was where John retreated on his days off from his work for Esso at Rainbow Lake, and where he retired as his health declined. He welcomed visitors from his place at the end of the kitchen table, though he’d be the first to admit he preferred his own company. John loved his westerns and police dramas, often joking that his poor memory was a blessing as even re-runs were great to watch as he couldn’t remember them anyway. Although a car accident in his youth caused John physical trauma throughout his life, each person he encountered knew they mattered, and he made us laugh with his razor sharp wit.
When diagnosed with cancer, John’s desire was that he be allowed to spend his final days at home, and he did, passing quietly in his own bed with family around him, tearfully sending him from this life to the next, to meet his Mom and Dad, sisters Helen and Fern who predeceased him.
Missing John and cherishing his memory are sisters, Maureen (Bob), MaryBelle (Mark), Valerie, Faye, Geneve (Henry), brother Floyd (Donna), and brother-in-law, Al, as well as many nephews, nieces and their families.
A very special thank you to Faye, Max and Abi and their families for the love and care given to John during his illness, as well as to Crystal Kaminski and her Home Care nursing team who, through their expert care, enabled John to pass at home.
As per John’s wishes, a private graveside ceremony will be held.
