John Quiring


John Quiring died Oct. 24, 2008. He was born Oct. 12, 1911 in Laird, Sask. to John and Margaret Quiring. When the family lost their farm in Dalmeny, Sask. in 1929 they moved to Vancouver, where John worked at several different jobs. In 1940, he married Louise Klassen and they attended Vancouver MB Church, where John was baptized. In the years following, John and Louise were active members of the newly formed Fraserview MB and Killarney Park MB churches. John worked as a truck driver, but found time to build a house for his family, play the guitar, garden, take photos of family and road trips, and surf the internet. He will be remembered as a considerate, intellectually curious, hard-working man whose faith was evident in his life. John is mourned by Louise; children Jeanette (Joseph) Jones, Frances (Gerald) Friesen, Don, and Dan (Monique); 14 grandchildren; 18 great-grandchildren; 3 siblings. The memorial was Oct. 31 at Fraserview MB Church, Richmond, B.C.
