deGRAAFF, John


April 10, 1946 – April 7, 2011

We are sad to announce the passing of our husband, father and friend after a brief but courageous battle with cancer.

John leaves to cherish his memory his darling wife Carol Anaka, his children Ronald, Shane, Desiree and Jordan, as well as his mother Nell, his brother Cory (Lynne), his nephew Colyn, son in law Dale and his finace Laura, his brothers in law Reg (Valerie) and Rob (Janet) as well as many friends.

In keeping with John’s wishes there will not be a funeral but a Celebration of his life will be held Sunday April 17, 2011 at 2:00 PM at the Rotary Performing Arts Centre, Okotoks, Alberta. Flowers gratefully accepted or memorial tributes in John’s memory may be made to a charity of choice.

    My condolences to the de Graaff family. I went to high school with John and we played basketball together through those years. They were the best of times. Of course we used to tease John about his jump shot….it was effective though. John was never lacking in a positive attitude.
    May your memories be your comfort.
