John Norman OGILVIE

John Norman Ogilvie

April 12, 1937-September 3, 2012

The stage lights just got a little dimmer, center stage just a little more spacious, the music missing a rhythm guitar and vocals. Country music just lost a very special performer and entertainer. It is with great sadness and heavy hearts that we announce the passing of John Norman Ogilvie, on September 3rd, 2012, in the Regina General Hospital. John was liked and well known by many, and always had a very soft spot for animals and children, especially dogs and horses.  He always had a guitar by his side and a tune on his mind to share. His jokes, infectious smile and laugh will forever be missed.

John is survived by his step Daughter Leanne (Thoreson) and her son Ethan Ulph. His former wife Judith (Hector) Ogilvie. Brothers, George (Marlene Rose) Hubert (Joan) and sister-in law Alice (Pete) Ogilvie.

John was predeceased by his father Rugless, his mother Maggie and his son Blair. His sister Katy, and brothers Pete, William (Mickey) and Fred. His Brother in law Asbjorn Hvomb and his Sister in law Dorris (William).

The Celebration of life/ Memorial Tea for John will be held on September 15th from 2-4 pm at the Cadillac Community Hall, in Cadillac Saskatchewan.  Memorial donations will be used to help pay for the ceremony, as well as the remainder going to a trust fund for Leanne’s son Ethan. You can mail Donations to Leanne Ulph, Box 116 Neville Sk, S9H 1T0. Flowers gratefully declined you may wish to make a donation in John’s name to a charity of your choice.
