Obituary of John Conrad Migneault
John Conrad Migneault (Johnnie Conn, Migs) left this world on his own terms on Sunday, January 5th, 2020 after a valiant fight with cancer.
He leaves behind his loving wife of 52 years Val, his daughter Tara (Will) grandchildren Brennan, Jordan, Brady, son Justin, grandchildren Phoenix, Ryker, Amayah, son Trevor (Gail) grandchildren Baylie and Keagen. His siblings Brian (Dianne), Kevan (Cathie), Shane (Diane), Jason (Carmel) and sister Desi (Bernie) and sister-in-law Jan (Doug) Banks. Also left behind to cherish his memory are Shawna, Naava numerous nieces, nephews and many good friends. Predeceased by his parents John and Bette, older brothers Monte, Mick and Kim. Sister in laws, nieces and nephews.
Anyone who knew John knew his world revolved around hockey. From his professional career to rec hockey it encompassed his whole life. The HABS performance of late had given him great frustration causing him to refer to them as the Horrible HABS. He had many talents, unbeknownst too many was his gift for writing. His carpentry skills are evident in the home he built for Val and himself, taking pride in its beauty. His passion for gardening shone in its glory when you came to his home, and as close friends know he always said, “Stay off my Grass!”.
John always referred to his home in Kimberley as “God’s country”. He’s now gone on his new journey to reunite with his family, friends and beloved dog Gebeau that also had passed over the years.
Special thanks to Russ, Sydney, Dorina and Shaelyn for your love and support. Also many thanks to the wonderful care he received from the Kimberley Medical Clinic, Dr. Lunge, Dr. Buddo and Nigel Kitto. Homecare nurses Cathy, Nuala and Talia.
