We've lost another great koi friend.  More will be posted here as it becomes available.

ENNALS, Dr. John March 19, 1940 - March 31, 2014 Husband, father, grandfather, relation, Veterinarian, friend and neighbor. John died surrounded by love. He traveled his 6 year journey with cancer the same way he lived his personal and professional life: positive, practical, humble, proud, selfless, with compassion, kindness, dignity and absolute integrity. John is so dearly missed and will be celebrated and tenderly held in our hearts forever. For all who knew him, may his beautiful qualities and values serve as a place for gentle, loving remembrance and strength. On behalf of the family, deepest gratitude and appreciation for the love and compassionate care provided by everyone at Victoria Hospice. At John's request, there will be no formal service. A gathering of family, close friends, and colleagues will occur at a later date. In his memory, we invite you to donate to Victoria Hospice in honor of our beloved: Dad, Fish Papa, Grandpa, Papa J, Husband, Prince - John Ennals. - See more at: http://www.legacy.com/obituaries/timescolonist/obituary.aspx?n=john-ennals&pid=170473299#sthash.rdb3aFKS.dpuf

2003 Convention in Canada - with "the Queen"

John Ennals 3/19/1940 – 3/31/2014

 

John Ennals, husband of Lindsay, Father, Grandfather, and retired Veterinarian    March 19, 1940 – March 31, 2014.  John died surrounded by his loving family, after a six years journey with cancer. 

 

He fought it the same way he lived his personal and professional life; positive, practical, humble, proud, selfless with compassion, kindness, dignity and absolute integrity.  John is dearly missed and will be celebrated and tenderly held in our hearts forever.  For all who knew him, may his beautiful qualities, values, and gentle love be remembered.

 

John’s family gives their deepest gratitude and thanks for the love and compassionate care provided by everyone at Victoria Hospice.

 

At John’s request, there will be no funeral service. However at a later date there will be a gathering in John’s memory.  All are invited to donate in John’s memory. Donate to the Victoria Hospice in honor of our beloved Dad, Fish PaPa, Grandpa, PaPa, Husband, and the Prince, John Ennals.  Lindsay told me yesterday, she called him her Prince because she kissed quite a few frogs, before she found her prince.

 

After dating for two years, and cohabitating for 15 years, they were quietly married on May 23, 2008.  They then sold their great home with an indoor and outdoor pond on acreage in the woods, outside beautiful Victoria.  They bought a home right on the water, with only a road separating them from the ocean.  With the need for space and a place to park their cars on the property, they then built the new koi pond out of a septic tank.  It has worked out very well, especially with the worst predators being strong otters. 

 

I don’t know anyone who could ever say a bad word about John.  He was certainly one of a kind and precious to all who knew him.  A lot of John’s description was taken out of the obituary two of his sons and Lindsay wrote and was published on April 5th and 6th, 2014 in the Times Colonist Victoria BC obituaries.

 

Just remember, everything is or was bright yellow, especially Lindsay, from head to toe, her baseball cap and her bright yellow shoes.  Don’t forget her bright yellow pickup truck.  Every time I see one of these bright yellow trucks, I always look inside for Lindsay or John. 

Who knows!!!!

Sally J Karo, Fish and Personal friend of John and Lindsay
