Nellis, John Lincoln 

(July 4th, 2024)

July 21, 1969 – July 4, 2024

A misstep on a cliff culminated in the tragic loss of our beloved John.

Throughout his life he was consistently generous and willing to step up and help anybody at any time. He took great pride in his craftsmanship as a carpenter, safety officer, and foreman on major urban development job sites. Never one to shirk in his duties, he took exception to those who would ever take advantage of another or the system. Not having a mean bone in his body, this kindness was always apparent in his love of children and animals, and he took time for each. He was a sweet and gentle caregiver for his adoring Mother in her elder health issues, and a powerful supportive workmate in his Father‘s many creative projects.  His love of family was always near and dear in his heart. John’s humour and big heartedness will forever be missed!

He is survived by his parents, Richard and Sandra Nellis of Kaslo, BC as well as his sister Kristine Nellis of Kelowna, BC, as well as his loving aunts, uncles and cousins.

There will be a private remembrance celebration of John at a later date.
