Peacefully, surrounded by family, John M. Fancy passed away on Sunday May 21, 2017 at The Ottawa Hospital General Campus, following complications from surgery in February. He was predeceased by his wife, Hope, in January 2007. John was father of Sharon (Gilles) Roy, Keith (Michelle), John (Cheryl), and Susan (Ken) Lester. He was particularly fond of his nine grandchildren: Jason, Skye, Clayton, Curtis, Alyson, Bryan, Colin, Shawnee and Sophie and his one great-grandchild, Ilyas. He was a special friend to Joy and Robbie Bisson, Marg and Evelyn. Visitors will be received at the Garden Chapel of Tubman Funeral Homes, 3440 Richmond Road, Nepean (between Bayshore Dr. and Baseline Rd.) on Thursday May 25th from 4-7 p.m. and again on Friday May 26th at Knox United Church, 25 Gibbard Ave., at 10am until time of memorial service at 12noon. A lunch will take place downstairs immediately following. Please join the family and enjoy a good chuckle while remembering John. What a character he was! John’s family want to extend their sincere gratitude to all the staff in the ICU and on 5NW. Such kindness and caring – just amazing. There were some very special individuals who made a significant difference over these most difficult three months: Dr. Breau, Sadia, Courtney, Grace, Nick, Stephanie, Kristen, Paddy, Julie and Chris. John’s family will not forget any of you. For those who wish to make a donation in lieu of flowers we would like to suggest Bladder Cancer Canada. Condolences, tributes or donations may be made at
