It is with great sadness that the family of John Peter Vereschagin announces his peaceful passing with his loving family by his side at the age of 74. John was predeceased by his wife Dawn (nee Phillips) in 1996, his parents Peter and Dorothy Vereschagin and his brother Harry Vereschagin. John leaves to mourn his passing, his sons, Peter (Julie) Vereschagin and their children Stoya and Saulanna of Lethbridge and Ken (Lisa) Vereschagin and their child Logan of Drumheller and many family members from both the Vereschagin and Phillips family. John worked for the City of Calgary at the Water Treatment Plant until his retirement in 2009 for a total of 27 years of service. John enjoyed watching football and hockey and he always cheered for the Montreal Canadians and the Calgary Stampeders. John could often be seen enjoying a cup of coffee with his buddies at McDonald’s and jujubes in his candy jar at home. He was lovingly referred to as The Snack King among his family and could always be counted on for bringing the best treats to a family get together. Over the last decade, John enjoyed nothing more than spoiling his grandchildren with the neatest, noisiest knick knacks and toys, the more required assembly the better. It was part of John’s unique sense of humour. Although John is no longer with us, we take great comfort in our memories and laughs that we have all shared over the years. In lieu of flowers, the family would like people to donate to a charity of their choice.
