John Carl Lundquist 1937 — 2018

John Carl Lundquist

December 6, 1937 – February 14, 2018


John Lundquist, also known as “J.C. or Mitzi” to his friends in Winnipeg and Kamloops, passed away on Wednesday, February 14, 2018. He was born on December 6, 1937 in Winnipeg, Manitoba. John was raised in Winnipeg and developed an appreciation for Nice Cars and a love of pets and wildlife. John was a long time member of the LGBT community, and was proud to hear a “Public Apology” in the House of Commons last fall over issues that had impacted many in his generation as well as himself.  John worked for many years in the Pipeline Industry for a variety of companies.  He had a passion for politics, and was active in the Liberal Party for many years. John was well respected and will be dearly missed by all of his colleagues that worked with him on the many mainline pipeline projects he worked on across Canada. There will be a Celebration of life in the spring/early summer when his ashes will be spread. His insight and witty intellect will be fondly remembered.

He was a beloved brother to Lily Gibson, her children William, John and Ingrid, and is also survived by his niece and nephews and his Special friends Jim Kane and Arnie Stefaniuk.  John was predeceased by his parents, sisters Shirley and Ingrid and brother in-law William Gibson.

    John’s quick wit and generosity will be missed. He taught me how to be proud and to
    Fight for what I believed in.
