JOHN V. TRETHEWEY On Friday, May 11, 2007. Peacefully and with family at his side, John V. Trethewey in his eighty-third year, died at University Hospital, London, Ontario. Most recently residing in Middlesex Centre and formerly of London, Ontario and Montreal, Quebec, he was born in Stratford the youngest son of Agnes and Ernest Trethewey. Husband of the late B (Jacqueline Hider, May 18, 2003). John is survived by daughters Margaret of London, Elizabeth (William Robbs) of Lake Oswego, Oregon, and Nora (Gary Bezanson) and grandson Mark of Middlesex Centre, Ontario, as well as by his brothers and sisters-in-law Charles and Helen, George and Thelma, Elva Trethewey, and Norine Hider. He will also be missed by many nieces and nephews and their families, and fondly remembered as a Special Papa by Tina, Olivia and Quincy. Predeceased by his sister Anna and her husband Roy Strachan, brother Richard, brother Robert and his wife Enid, and brother-in-law William Hider. After serving in the RCAF in radio communications, John began his career in broadcasting at CJCS Stratford. In 1947, he joined CFPL in London as Staff Announcer and was heard regularly as the on-air voice for The Don Wright Chorus. On June 28, 1947, John married his high school sweetheart, B, and they began married life and raising a family together in London. In 1954, they moved to Montreal when John joined CBC Radio and, in 1958, launched his daily morning classical music programme "Concert Time" delighting a loyal and steady audience for eighteen years. John moved over to CBC's Radio Canada International in 1977 and kept listeners around the world up-to-date with the latest national and international news and events until his retirement in 1986. John and B returned to London in 1993 where they continued to enjoy their retirement years gardening, playing bridge, and volunteering their time and talents to Kiwanis and IODE projects. Recognition and deep gratitude go to Mary Ann Bennett, PSW, for her most professional and attentive care, for her patience and gentleness, and for all the laughs she shared with John in his last years. A memorial service will be held at St. George's Anglican Church, 227 Wharncliffe Rd., London on Saturday, June 9 at 11 a.m. Memorial contributions may be made to The John V. Trethewey Scholarship Fund, Kiwanis Music Festival of London, P.O. Box 50008, London, N6A 6H8. Online condolences may be sent to Cette adresse e-mail est protégée contre les robots spammeurs.
