SERVICE EXCELLENCE when you need it most.
It is with great sadness that the family of John Charles Strick announces his passing on September 19, 2017, at the age of 79 years. He will be lovingly remembered by his wife of 48 years, Donna, his children Laurie (Brian Parent) and Ross (Nadine) and his grandsons Michael, Trevor, and Brett Parent, and Douglas and John Strick. He is survived by his brothers Lorne (Eleanor), Edward (Beverley), and Ken (Halya), sisters-in-law Joan Strick and Gladys Hays, and many nieces and nephews. He is predeceased by his parents William (1994) and Lena (1997) and his brother Fred (1996). John was born in Stonewall, Manitoba. His love of reading and study carried him through a distinguished academic career. He earned a B.A. from the University of Manitoba, M.A. from Assumption University (Windsor) and Ph.D. from the University of Alberta before embarking on a distinguished career at the University of Windsor as a Professor of Economics from 1965 to 2001. John was known for his thoughtful manner and the quiet gentleness he showed to his family and the many animals he cared for. He cherished spending time with his children and grandsons. John served as a hockey coach for many years at Riverside Minor Hockey, first for his son, then for his grandsons. He will be missed along the walking trails where he was often found with his wife and his dog Ginger. He will also be missed by his golfing buddies at Beach Grove Golf & Country Club. Cremation has taken place and interment will follow in Winnipeg, Manitoba.
