In loving memory of John Mark Spann who sadly passed away on 6th January 2018
SPANN John Mark “Wal” “Gone Fishing”
Originally from Brisbane and lately of Lae, PNG and Mitchelton; John passed away peacefully in the Royal Brisbane and Women’s Hospital surrounded by the love of his family on Saturday 6th January 2018. At the time of his passing he was just 60 years of age.
John will be sadly missed by his loving wife and soulmate, Michele, and his close family and friends, each of whom remember him as a kind, generous and loving handy man, who could fix anything no matter who asked him.
I am sure that wherever John is, he will be surrounded by his children that never took breath, family members and his adoring dogs, with a line in the water waiting for the big one to bite. Consequently, it is fitting that we should remember the fisherman’s prayer
God grant that I may live
To fish until my dying day.
And when it comes to my last cast,
I then most humbly pray
When in the Lords safe landing net
I’m peacefully asleep.
That in his mercy I be judged
As good enough to keep
John’s family and many friends are invited to attend his celebration of life ceremony that will be held at Emmanuel Uniting Church, 249 South Pine Road, Enoggera with parking behind the church at 92 Laurel Street, Enoggera on Tuesday 23rd January 2018 commencing at 11.00am, with refreshments to follow.
