John Drake Obituary

John Henry Drake (83) of Bridgetown, Nova Scotia passed away December 8th 2023 in Kentville, NS with family and loved ones nearby after a short but aggressive battle with Cancer.

John was born July 22nd 1940 to parents Ernest and Agnes "Jean" Drake of Shoal Lake, MB and grew up on his family's farm. John enjoyed farming and growing his own food as well as the outdoors. He moved to BC and lived there until 2021 when he moved across the country to Nova Scotia. John was a professional truck driver for many years along with a few other jobs along the way.

 John was predeceased by his loving wife Karen Drake and survived by his partner Ethel as well as many family members and friends across Canada. Ethel and John spent the past year exploring Nova Scotia together. John was known for his kind and caring personality and excellent sense of humor. He loved spending time with family and always valued time more than "stuff". "It's just stuff, it's replaceable" he would say, "time and memories aren't".  John enjoyed spending time writing, reading, perusing garage sales, wood carving and visiting his grandkids. 

A Celebration of life will be held at his home in Bridgetown on January 27th from 1pm-3pm. Friends and family are welcome.
