(Douglas) John McLaren
Jan 28, 1950 – May 7, 2017
After a multitude of medical problems, spanning many years, John met a challenge he couldn’t win, and lost a short battle with cancer in palliative care at the Brantford General Hospital. He leaves behind his best friend and loving wife of 47 years Candi (nee Goold). He will be greatly missed by his daughter Tracy Crabb (Kenny) and his son Mike McLaren. His adored Granddaughters Brooklyn and Avery Crabb and Emily McLaren will remember their papa fondly. John is also survived by his brother Bruce McLaren (the late Marsha) and their daughter Jennifer. Also left to mourn are many members of his extended in-law family and a large circle of friends. John worked for 32 years for the City of Brantford Works Dept. and was a longtime member of the Knights of Columbus where he enjoyed many hours playing euchre with his buddies. Friends and family are invited to visit the DENNIS TOLL FUNERAL HOME, 55 Charing Cross Street, Brantford on Wednesday, May 10, 2017 from 12:00 noon until the time of the service at 3:00 p.m. in the chapel. Donations may be made to the Canadian Cancer Society, The War Amps of Canada or a charity of your choice.
