John Struthers Anderson

Thursday, September 11th, 1941 Sunday, April 4th, 2021.

It is with genuine sorrow that we mourn the passing of John Struthers Anderson on Sunday, April 4, 2021 in his 79th year at the Cornwall Community Hospital.

John was born and educated in Scotland. He served in the British Army and the British Naval Service discovering his lifelong love of travel. John eventually chooses to work, explore and reside in Canada. He resided in Edmonton, Alberta, Yellowknife, NWT before finally retiring happily in Cornwall, Ontario. Those who knew John enjoyed his good nature, ready humour and his passion for golfing.

Left to mourn John’s passing is Nancy Anderson, his constant friend and former wife of thirty-three years, stepson Ned Lockhart, Vernon, BC, stepdaughter Leslie Lockhart (Frank) and step-grandchildren; Connor, Chloe and Tea, all of Kirkland, QC. John was predeceased by his brother Neil Anderson, England. He will be sadly missed by his dear sister Agnes Hewitt, St. Catharine’s, ON, and by his dear brother Robert Anderson, England, and Robert’s family, Linda Anderson, Moira Anderson Hill, Brian Fraser and their families who loved Uncle John from afar and enjoyed his visits. He will also be remembered and missed by many friends from Edmonton, Yellowknife and Cornwall who knew John for his dedication, constant support, guidance and never-ending encouragement.

The family would like to thank those who have cared for John in this past year: Patrick Campeau, Nurse Next Door, Kerri Flaro and the Personal
Support Workers from Bayshore Homecare services, and the staff at the Cornwall Community Hospital.

As per John’s wishes, there will be no formal service.
