John Malcolm Turriff

Jun 17, 1929 – Feb 16, 2018
John Malcolm Turriff – Born June 17, 1929 in Winnipeg, Manitoba, passed away February 16, 2018 in Trail, British Columbia.

John’s working career took him from Manitoba to California and back to BC, working for the railroad, RCMP, and as a police officer; however, most of his career was in sales.

He enjoyed golfing with 4 holes in one, was a mason, and one of his greatest joys was family gatherings which frequently broke into song.

John is survived by his loving wife Blanche Turriff of 65 years, children: John (Wendy), Rhonda, and Brad (Rosa), 5 grandchildren, and 8 great-grandchildren.

He was predeceased by his father Malcolm, mother Louise, and sister Vera.

The family would like to thank the staff and care-givers at Rosewood Village, and at Kootenay Boundary Regional Hospital, for their great care.

At John’s request, there will be no service. Bill Clark of Alternatives Funeral and Cremation Service has been entrusted with arrangements.
