John (Big John) Edwards, beloved husband of Frances, loving father of Bill, Kathy & Brian and Pat & Brad, all of Bancroft and the late Harriett, loving grandfather of Cassandra, Shannon, Stewart Jr., Bradley, Jonathan, Julie, Chelsea, Chaela and Liam and great grandfather of Clare and Julia. He will be fondly remembered by his niece, Rosemary Rallison. John and Frances immigrated from Ireland together and made their home here where he ran a very successful real estate business for many years. His retirement has been a very happy time for John having spent it tending to his hobby farm, raising his ducks and geese, looking after his own little golf course and simply enjoying his property.

John was Always a good neighbour, generous with his help and unafraid to ask for help when he needed it. His Irish music tapes could be heard across his fields, and his sense of humour had a definite lilt to it. He is missed.

Its many years since I was in Uncle John’s home but I remember himself and Auntie Frances fondly. They treated all of us visiting Irish like royality.
Sincere condolences to all the family, and of course to my Rosemary too. Xx
