Obituary of John Kilpatrick
Kilpatrick, John Charles - Passed away peacefully at Dover Cliffs with his family by his side, on Thursday, April 11th. In his 82nd year, he departed to join his honey, Ruth, who predeceased him in 2011. Loving, kind, caring father to Lynda Kilpatrick (Will) and Michael Kilpatrick (Christine). Grandpa will be sadly missed by his two sweeties, Camryn and Addison. Also predeceased by his parents, Charles and Katherine Kilpatrick, as well as his brother David Kilpatrick (Aunt Barb, Rob and Patrice). John worked at Port Dover Ivey's for most of his working life, but it was how he spent life outside of work hours that made him the man we aspire to be most like. He literally built life around him. He built our homes, much of the furniture in our homes, the boats on which we enjoyed summer days, and most of all he, together with Ruth, built one incredible family life. His fun loving, kind hearted nature touched many lives and he built solid friendships all around him. Oh, the stories! We invite you to join us in celebrating Dad's life at Knox Presbyterian Church in Port Dover on Friday, April 19th, at 1:00pm for Funeral Service, followed by interment at Port Dover Cemetery and reception. If desired, donations to the Port Dover Foundation would be greatly appreciated. We would like to express our many thanks to the loving staff at Dover Cliffs and other caregivers who touched Dad's life in his final days. Your kindness and compassion is unsurpassed and will never be forgotten.
