In Memory of John B. Eccles
Suddenly, at home, Wednesday, January 19, 2022 with his wife by his side. John is survived by his wife Alma and children Jennifer (Kenneth) and Michael, as well as three grandsons, Payton, Lyam and Jackson. John is also survived by his sister June (Bob), brother-in-law, Reg (Maria), sister-in-law, Katherine and four nephews and their families.
As a professional engineer, bridge designer and long term employee of the former Regional Municipality of Ottawa-Carleton and the City of Ottawa, he was involved with the repair and restoration of many of the City’s historical bridges including Plaza Bridge and the War Memorial.
As per his wishes, cremation has already taken place and a celebration of life will be at a later date.
The family wish to thank the attending paramedics, fire fighters and police officers for their professionalism and courtesy, as well as the kindness of their neighbours and friends.
In lieu of flowers please consider a donation to the Ottawa Heart Institute in John’s memory. The family is forever grateful for the many extra years that they gave us with John.
