Obituary: John Bruce Trelford – August 18, 2022

John Bruce Trelford peacefully passed away on his own terms, on Thursday, August 18, 2022 at the age of 67, after a courageous battle with cancer.

Beloved father to Lindsay Hall (Nathan). Best friend and partner to Susan Pierson. Son to the late Bob & Faith (nee: Sutter) Trelford of Southampton. Caring husband to his late wife Karen. Much loved brother to Elaine (Doug) Shannon, Terry, and Tim Trelford. Proud “little papa” to Mikhaela Moore and Tyler Allison.

He will be fondly remembered by all his extended family and friends for his wit, big hugs, firm handshakes, and his generosity as a great neighbour. John was a long-time employee of Coca-Cola, and passionate about his adventures on his treasured Harley Davidson. He will be greatly missed by his fur babies Chase, Frannie and Chance.
