Loving father, grandfather and great grandfather, John Georg Alsch, age 94 was born April 6, 1927 in Heinzendorf, Germany passed away in Roseview Manor on Monday, July 26, 2021.

He worked at several jobs from bush worker to mechanic after arriving in Canada, finishing his working career with his own company, John’s Saw Sales. He loved fishing & woodworking and puttering with all things mechanical.

John’s entire family would like to thank all the nurses and PSW’s that looked after him the last few years. He always enjoyed teasing all the nurses and PSW’s who tended to him at home, St. Joe’s, the hospital and especially the staff at Roseview.
