February 6, 1944 – January 11, 2021
Passed away peacefully, on January 11, 2021 at St. Joseph’s Hospital in Hamilton, with wonderful staff who gave him the greatest of care. Loved by his wife Camille Iversen, children Debbie (Steven), Gaynor, Sarah (Alex) and Denise and proud grandfather to Chelsea, Kiara, Joshua, Bram, Arianna and Talia. John was also loved by his family in Denmark the Iversens and the Smalls in Canada and Guyana. John was born in Fredericia, Denmark as the second child to Annalise Schjodt and Erik Iversen and moved to Canada as a young man but also lived in Guyana and Belgium for some time. John was a skilled bricklayer who enjoyed his work. As a young man he was a member of the rowing club and played cricket for many years. He was an adventurous man with a passion for travelling, good food and conversation. But above all, John was a family man proud of his children and grandchildren. He thoroughly enjoyed all family gatherings, big and small, in Hamilton or Toronto, as well as taking his children and grandchildren to Sunset Villa to share in his Danish heritage. John was a believer in Christ and faithfully attended Victory International Church. It is his faith and fighting spirit that helped him to overcome various illnesses. Unfortunately, COVID would be his last fight. Cremation has taken place. A private family Funeral Service will be held on Saturday, January 16, 2021 at 1 p.m. and will be livestreamed through Facebook on the Donald V. Brown Funeral Home Facebook Page. The service will also be available just below, at a later date. Notes of sympathy and condolence may be left at www.donaldvbrown.ca
John Iversen will continue to live in our hearts and will be dearly missed.
