It is with great sadness that we announce the passing of John A. Sibley, our husband, father, father-in-law, Grampa, brother-in-law and uncle, in his 78th year. He passed away peacefully at home on Wednesday August 24, 2022 with his family by his side.

Beloved husband of 34 years to Rose Mary. He will be deeply missed by his sons Jason (Amanda) and Jeff (Amanda). Saying goodbye to his granddaughter, Imogen, was the hardest goodbye for John. Wishing him peace are his sisters-in-law, Margaret (Mark) Bossy and Teresa Moore. Uncle John will be sorely missed by many nieces and nephews and their families. John was predeceased by his parents Bill (2015) and Hughian (2008), his brother Tom (2014), and many aunts and uncles.

John began his firefighting career at the Woodstock Fire Department in 1974. He moved up through the ranks, serving as Fire Chief for the last 12 years of his career; retiring from the Fire Department in 2004. He loved serving the community of Woodstock. For those who knew John, his passion was baseball. He loved playing the sport in his younger years, always in the position of catcher, for many fastball teams, to later in life watching his beloved Tigers.

Rose, Jason, Jeff, and family would like to thank Dr. Kocsis and his Staff for their compassion and caring. Special thanks to the PICOT team and all the services that were made available to John. Their kindness and compassionate care will be forever remembered.

In honouring John's wishes, a Celebration of Life will be held on Wednesday September 14, 2022 from 1 to 4 pm. at the Woodstock Navy Club, 959 James St., Woodstock, Ontario. Please join our family to celebrate John's life.
