John is predeceased by his parents Rev. William J. and Kathleen Audrey Macluskie, his past wife Doreen, his son Mark and his brother Wilfred (Donna). He is survived by his wife DonnaLee, his son Kevin (Cynthia), grandson Mark, brother Rev. Ron (Dannita) and sister Kathleen McAlister (Ian) as well as many nieces and nephews.
John had three loves…his Lord, his family and anything motorcycle…especially his red Honda Gold Wing and trailer! The sound of any type of motorcycle would make John come alive no matter where he was or what he was doing.
He was born in Wetaskiwin Alberta and then his parents took him to their first pastorage in Shaunavon Saskatchewan. From there they moved to pastor in Nanton Alberta. After several years, there they moved to Nanaimo BC and lived in the Cedar area.
He then sold Life Insurance and Investments for about 30 years. His dad had said to him “John, you never say much at home and yet you are making a living talking to people.” John always grinned about that, he had such a good sense of humour.
We are here to remember the gentle, kind, ever patient person that John was and how he could always make us laugh.
Galatians 5:22 NLT
