Gone Fishing

John (Tiny) Daniel Rimell

After a brief battle with cancer John left this life to start his greatest fishing adventure ever.

For all those who knew John you will remember his passion for fishing and family and for all the wonderful and crazy stories he told. No one could take a common everyday occurrence and spin a complete tale around it the way he could.

Left to celebrate John’s life and memories are his wife of 35 years Mary, 5 children Sheila (Jim), Lisa (Brett), Danelle (Rob), Chris (Caitlin), and Jessica, seven grandchildren Corissa (Stefan), Connor, Donald, Eli, Jazmin, Gracie and Cassandra, older brothers Phil (Barb) and Bill, nephews and nieces Diane(Gerry), Dan (Tanya), Kathy (Tony), and special nephew Dave (Tia) who he helped raise as a child as well as many extended family members and friends.

Special thanks to Dr. Adamarie Steyn for her compassion and caring especially over the last month.

No service as requested. In lieu of flowers should you wish donations can be made in memory of John to the B.C. Cancer Agency or B.C. Heart and Stroke Fund.
