John (Ted) Fairfax

June 27, 1933 – November 17, 2013

It is with great sadness that on we say goodbye to John (Ted)Fairfax.

Ted was a familiar face to many in Campbell River as he stood in front of the fire at his family’s Seawalk Coffee Bar greeting friends and strangers alike. He entertained everyone with his humor and stories he would share about his life.

He will be deeply missed by his brother Bobby ( Kaarina), sister Ilean “Tootsie”, wife Phyllis, son Dale and grandson Jonathan, daughter Kim (Harry) grandchildren Amber & Dalyn. Condolences to his CP Rail, BC Rail and Alberni Pacific Railway friends.

Please come join us for a potluck celebration for Ted at FoggDukkers Coffee Bar on the Seawalk on November 30th, 2013 beginning at 1pm. All are welcome.

I would like to extend a special thank you to our true dear friend Dr. Michael Meckin. Thank you for the borrowed time. It meant everything.

Life isn’t measured by the breaths we take

but by the moments that take our breath away.
