Oesch, John David

May 6, 1922 – May 31, 2012
at the age of 90 years

John passed away in the Shuswap Lake General Hospital on May 31, 2012 at the age of 90 years.

He  was born at Spritwood, SK, moving to Alberta and then BC working as a truck driver and in Golden at Evans Forest Products up to 1982.  He met and married Mickey; they both retired and moved to Salmon Arm in 1985.

John was an avid hunter and fisherman.  He & Mickey enjoyed many camping trips throughout western Canada.  His heart was always in Saskatchewan.

He enjoyed a good cup of coffee; visiting all the local shops to socialize with all his friends.

He is survived by his wife Mickey, brother Walter (Alberta), daughter Faye (Enderby), grandchildren Robert (Creston) Brenda (Airdrie), Blair, (Golden), great grandchildren Katie (Airdrie), Christopher (Airdrie), numerous nieces, nephews and their families.

John recently enjoyed a wonderful 90th birthday bar-b-que with family and friends.  No funeral service by request. Should friends desire, memorial donations in John’s name could be made to the Shuswap Lake Hospital Foundation, Box 265, Salmon Arm, BC, V1E 4N3.


  1. I am sorry to hear that Uncle John has passed away. Even though I have not kept in contact and have not seen him since I was young, I still remember him and I remember Mom talking about him.


  2. Our thoughts and condolences go out to Mickey and family in the passing of John.
    We’ll miss those mall chats with John, as he was waiting for Mickey, in these final years. Mickey we hope to see you soon.

    Anna & Clement Maisonneuve
