Obituary

It is with great sadness we announce the sudden passing of John David Grieve on August 14, 2020 in his home at 72 years. Cherished son of the late David and late Violet. Beloved husband of Maureen Grieve (nee Suddard) of 53 years. Devoted father of Kelley (Frank), and Denise (Sylvain). “Pop in” Poppy of Lindsay, Connor, Peyton and Rhylee. Fun loving great poppy of Sutton. Adored brother of Iris, Gary, Pat, Darlene, Philip and the late David. John will be dearly missed by his many friends, his golfing buddies, his colleagues at Mills Motors and the crew from Double M trailer park. There will be a little less laughter in the world with the loss of John and his quick wit.

“A Life is Like a Round of Golf”
By Criswell Freeman
Life is like a round of golf
With many a turn and twist
But the game is much too sweet and short
To curse the shots you’ve missed

Sometimes you’ll hit it straight and far
Sometimes the putts roll true
But each round has its errant shots
And troubles to play through

So always swing with courage
No matter what the lie
And never let the hazards
Destroy the joy inside

And keep a song within your heart
Give thanks that you can play
For the round is much too short and sweet
To let it slip away

Moe & family. We were shocked to hear of John's sudden passing. I only heard the sad news on Thursday, Aug. 20,2020 from Kyle at Mills. I will probably lose a few pounds now that the baker has gone to greener pastures in the sky. :) I am looking forward to seeing you at Mills on my rounds in the not too distant future. Thoughts & prayers are with you & your family. R.I.P. John.
