It was with great sadness that Hospice Quinte learned of John Williams’ sudden passing.  We had the honour of working closely with John over the past year as he Co-Chaired our Heart & Home Campaign in support of the new Hospice Quinte Care Centre.

Executive Director Jennifer May-Anderson says, “John was extremely passionate and committed to the project, realizing a great need in the community for such a facility.  He led the campaign charge, along with his Co-Chair Ross McDougall, with great enthusiasm and determination that was matched by few others.”

John was instrumental in raising over 50% of the $9.5M campaign goal in well under a year – a true testament to his powerful personality and willingness to be wherever, whenever and do whatever it took to ensure success.

Board President Bill MacKay says, “Hospice Quinte found a true friend in John and we are honoured to be joining the many other legacies he has left our community. We will be forever grateful for his willingness to take a leadership role in the Heart & Home Campaign.”

Funeral arrangements are through Rushnell Family Services.

If desired, donations to Hospice Quinte (Heart & Home Building Campaign), Eastminster United Church, or Camp Quin-Mo-Lac would be greatly appreciated by the family.
