Passed on: September 16th, 2015

John Patrick Tobin passed away peacefully at the age of 84 on the morning of September 16, 2015 in Kamloops, BC. It was not with a weak heart, but with a heart full of love, warmth, compassion and courage in which he left this Earth, content in knowing he had fulfilled his life here. Our dad was a true Newfoundlander, fiercely proud of his roots. He loved fishing, he had a wonderful sense of humour and he stood up for what he believed in. Predeceased by his wife Gloria Tobin (1992), son Johnny Tobin (1977) and son-in-law Ben Uri (1988) and survived by his 10 children and their families: Helen Prouse (Dan) and children Steven and Kerry; Joan Taylor and children Christian, Life and Namaste; Tom Tobin (Marlene) and children Jim, Tina and Jacob; Peggy Tobin and children Dylan, Seth, Swanee, Bailey and Keadon; Debbie Tobin and children Callie and Landon; Gertrude Uri and children Katie and Luke; Colleen Tobin and children Natasha, Tyrel, Sheldon and Keosha; Chris Tobin (Chelann) and children Nathan and Tanner; Pam Tobin (John) and children Tara, Ryan and Kamille; Michael Tobin (Caren) and children Taylor and Dallas and 38 great-grandchildren. Our dad overcame many great challenges and lived to write a memoir of his legacy to forever remain with his family. With the words of an old Irish verse: "May the road rise to meet you, may the wind be always at your back; may the sun shine warm upon your face, and the rains falls soft upon your fields, and until we meet again, may God hold you in the palm of His hand." A celebration of Jack's life will include prayers on Sunday, September 20, 2015 at 7 pm at OLPH Church, 635 Tranquille Road; Funeral Mass and graveside service on Monday, September 21, 2015 at 11 am at OLPH Catholic Church with a reception to follow.
