It is with heavy hearts that we announce the sudden passing of John Alexander Dunbar of Fredericton.  At 67 years old, he packed more into life than most of us could ever imagine.  Moving out of his family home at a very young age, he became very self-sufficient and a master of many trades.  If you needed something, John was there with a solution and the items needed to fix your problem.  Being the son of the late Mavis Loretta MacFarlane, John had an independent streak that could sometimes produce some unique scenarios. We will all remember his dramatic personality with fond memories and more than a few chuckles. 

John's loves were split between playing hockey, riding his Harley, hanging out with friends and playing bingo. Being passionate about collecting antiques, many of John's friends would receive multiple calls and pictures expressing his excitement over his latest finds.  He was also known for his green thumb and his house was always filled with many kinds of plants. 

He will be deeply missed by his two daughter's, Selina Dunbar and Alexandria Carpenter-Dunbar and brother Roger. John is also survived by two nephews, Mark and Ryan (Sarah). 

Besides his mother, he was predeceased by his sister-in-law, close friend and bingo buddy, Lynn Dunbar.

A celebration of life will be held on Saturday, March 23rd from 1-3 PM at Bishop’s Funeral Home, 540 Woodstock Road.

Donations may be made to NBSPCA or a charity of your choosing.
