John Edwin Chaplin, age 86, passed away September 20,2023 in Halifax, NS. John was born on January 23, 1937 in London, England to Horace and Elizabeth (Hayes) Chaplin.
He is survived by his wife Laraine (Stross), children Andrew (Michelle), Gilly, and Jonathan, grandchildren Adam (Nathalie), Sophie (Richard), Max and Sam, great grandchildren Ruby, Iverson and Kinsley and his twin sister Jean Brown.
John began his advertising career in London, England working in media and researching for major advertising agencies such as Dorland Advertising, Leo Burnett and the Thomson organization. He met Laraine when she was reporting on one of his presentations and the rest is history. She was a package deal with three small children and John bravely jumped into fatherhood. They immigrated to Canada in 1975 where he was Vice President of Foster Advertising and then President of PMB Print Measurement Bureau in Toronto. He was also the chairman of the Canadian Advertising Research Foundation. In later years they were adventurous and moved back to London with JD Power and lived near the Globe Theatre where they took in many performances, then on to Panama where they spent nine marvelous years and finally a last move to Halifax to be close to family.
We wish to express our appreciation for the kindness of the staff at Arborstone Nursing Home. A celebration of life to be held at a later date.
