In Celebration of

John Wegener

December 21, 1939 -  April 11, 2019

John passed away peacefully in his 80th year with his family by his side. He leaves behind his beloved wife and best friend Aniko Vargha Wegener; his children Debbie (Jim), John, Robert (Jennifer), Nancy (Dave) and Chris (Kristy); grandchildren Andrew (Brandi), Adam (Emily), Amy (Matthew), Cole, Rachel, Katie, Carly, Jake and Paige; great grandchildren David, Evelyn, (Madeline) and Jack; and niece Sue (Sylivie).John grew up in Chambly, Quebec, later moving to Toronto to build a distinguished career as an executive at Pratt & Whitney, RJ Reynolds, and CIBC Wood Gundy, before forming the Gordian Group, a successful facilities management company. He will be lovingly remembered as an engaging storyteller whose wit and warmth could melt hearts. He treasured Aniko and the great love story they shared. He also cherished time spent with family, especially the grandkids and great grandkids. A life-long golfer, John embraced the camaraderie of the game and the many friendships made on the links. He also loved to travel, cooking classes in Tuscany being a highlight. Special thanks to the wonderful staff at Sunnybrook Hospital’s trauma centre for their compassionate care. Very special thanks to dear neighbours and friends Melissa, Heather, Madolyn and Michele and cousin Debbie. Visitation will take place on Tuesday from 6 to 8 p.m. at Turner & Porter Butler Chapel, 4933 Dundas Street W. Etobicoke (between Islington & Kipling Aves.). A Celebration of Life will be held in the Chapel on Wednesday April 17th, 2019 at 11:00 a.m. Donations may be made to the Hurvitz Brain Sciences Centre at Sunnybrook Hospital or to Camp Oochigeas.
