I am so saddened to inform you of the passing of Brother John ‘Long Gone’ Connor this morning, at home in Ottawa. His beloved Sweetheart, Pam, was by his side, as she has been for the best years of their lives, and especially during his confrontation with cancer.
As most of you know, John was diagnosed in December 2015. As a medical professional of over 40 years, he knew the challenges, he knew the protocols, and he knew his own mind & body. He chose the path less travelled. A more indomitable spirit you will never encounter.
I applaud his courage, I salute his journey, and I cherish his Brotherhood & Friendship.
Do not go gentle into that good night,
Old age should burn and rave at close of day;
Rage, rage against the dying of the light.
