It is with profound sadness that we announce the passing of our beloved brother John F. (Ooge) Carrothers in his 61st yr at Bluewater Health Sarnia.
John was the loving son of the late Joan and Gerald Carrothers of Sarnia, he is survived by his siblings, Joan (Andrew) Ross of Ottawa, Bill (Lorenda), Dave (Jeanette), Matt (Sandy), Cathy (Tony) Pavli, Carol (Dave) Reid, and Mary (Mike) Fitchett.
John was a favourite uncle to many nieces, nephews and great-nieces and nephews, all of Sarnia.
For any that we're fortunate to know John can best describe him as a happy guy that had a laugh and an infectious smile that could light up a room, John had a special way of leaving a warm spot in your heart just for him.
At John's request, there will be no funeral or visitation, a private family ceremony will be conducted on Wednesday, November 18, 2020, at 11am with Heather Jennings officiating. With so many in need during these difficult times, any donations in John's memory can be made to the River City Vineyard.
