Obituary of John David Colyer

Please share a memory of John to include in a keepsake book for family and friends.

With broken hearts, we announce the death of John David Colyer on Friday, November 25th, 2022. Proud father of David (Renee), doting Grandpa to Lincoln.

He will be lovingly remembered by his sister Beverly Roy, his nieces and nephews Robyn, Marnie, Jayme, Janet, Stephen, Jenny, Jessy, Emily, Kelvin, and their families.

John will be fondly missed by his many friends in North Bay & Ottawa.

He was predeceased by his beloved wife Linda, his parents Joan & Milton Colyer, and his brother Jim Colyer.

John spent many years living and working in Ottawa, but his “Happy Place” was the cottage on Trout Lake and boating in his Scout. He was a man of few words, an artist and craftsman.

John’s family extends an invitation to all that knew and loved John, for a time of fellowship and refreshment at 770 McLaren Street, on Saturday, December 3rd, from 2:00-5:00 PM.


He will be missed.
