It’s is with great sadness we announce that John Bruce Colwell passed away peacefully on March 29, 2021, at the age of 70.
He was born in Wingham, Ontario and grew up and raised his family in Lucknow. He was predeceased by his parents Currie and Doris (Eadie) Colwell. He will be sadly missed by his wife Shirley (Reid) Colwell, his children Chris (Mary) Colwell, Tarrin (Evan) Poll, Gavin Colwell, Ainsley (Curtis) Duplessis and his Grandchildren, Kieran, Kendahl, Teagan, Ronin, Everett, Braeden and Adalyn as well as his Mother in Law Margaret Reid.
He loved his time with his grandchildren. He always took the time to teach them about nature, how to build and fix things, swimming, fishing, canoeing and hanging out in the gravel pit.
Wherever he is now we know that he is likely outside barefoot in his cutoff jeans.
