<div itemprop="description">JOHN EGLI (1923-2017)<br><br>John passed away peacefully after a short stay at the Heart Institute, at the age of 94. He is predeceased by his brother Don (Joan) and his first wife, Mildred. He is survived by his loving wife of 28 years, Gerda, his stepchildren and his sister Beatrice (Ed). <br><br>John did many things in his long life, including serving overseas in WWII, running a chicken farm and most memorably as a teacher and principal: most notably at City View and Stephen Leacock public schools. To this day, former students and colleagues remember the kindness and consideration he brought to the job every day. <br><br>He was also the best uncle anyone could ask for. Having no children of his own, he and his wife Gerda lovingly filled in as grandparents for numerous nieces and nephews. He will be missed by all of us. <br><br>A special thank you to the nurses and doctors at the Heart Institute for professional and compassionate care. John supported a number of charities, and his family asks that donations be made in his memory to a charity that supports children or the Heart Institute or a charity of your choice. <br></div>
