Predeceased by his parents John Bates McLaurin 1952 and Mary Elizabeth McLaurin (nee Stillwell) 1983, his brother Peter Stuart McLaurin 2010, and his wife Dora Marion (nee Burgess) 2015. Will be missed by his children Megan Martha Grace (and best friend Caitlin Smith), John Burgess (Tamera) and Andrew Robert (Joanne).
At John’s request there will be no funeral. Many thanks to staff and caregivers at Whispering Pines and Royal Victoria Hospital, Barrie; Bethsaida Retirement Home and Headwaters Health Care Centre E Wing, Orangeville; Hawthorn Woods Care Community and Brampton Civic Hospital ACE unit, Brampton, for looking after our Dad, and also to Telecheck Dufferin for daily chats for over 10 years, much appreciated.
