1940 Wishaw, Scotland

2020 St. Albert, Alberta


It is with great sadness that the family of John Mason announces his passing on Friday, December 4, 2020 in St. Albert, Alberta.


Our John, Dad and Papa will be lovingly remembered by his daughter, Lindsay (Clint) Torok-Both; grandchildren: Kyle, Colin, Katherine and Keiran along with many friends and previous co-workers at the Toronto Dominion Bank.


John was predeceased by his beloved wife, Moira and parents, James and Isabella Mason.


He was a lovely man with a fun-loving spirit, positive disposition and true gentleman who adored his family and treated all with kindness and respect. Our heartfelt gratitude to the caring staff at St. Albert Retirement Residence, Sturgeon Hospital and Youville home who despite overwhelming pandemic stress and workload were always kind, gentle and helpful.


A Celebration of Life will be held at a later date when we can all gather to raise a glass of single malt, share stories and celebrate the wonderful man who touched so many. 


Memorial donations in memory of John may be made to the Alberta Cancer Foundation, 710-10123 99 Street NW, Edmonton, AB, T5J 9Z9 or Covenant Foundation (Youville Home), 3C60-11111 Jasper Avenue NW, Edmonton, AB, T5K 9Z9.


Many thanks to Dad’s long time family physician Dr. Allan McDonald and specialists Dr. Simon Turner, Dr. Blair St. Martin and Dr. Gerrit Winkelaar for their compassion and excellent care extended to John over the years.
