John Beerman Obituary

BEERMAN, John Edward Born December 4, 1947-November 22, 2023 Aged 75 years

John (Johnny) Beerman went to be with his Lord and Saviour on November 22, 2023. Left to mourn his passing are his two sons: Brent (Nathalie) and Ryan (Coralie); seven grandchildren: Hailey, Levi, Sawyer, Heidi, Sadie, Elianna, and Jake; and his two sisters: Lenore and Brenda.

John was born in Russell on December 4, 1947 to Jack (John) and Anne Beerman. He was raised on the family farm in the Makaroff district along with his sisters, Lenore and Brenda, and his brother, Brian. John met his wife Mary (née Boliziuk) as a young man and they were married on September 5, 1970. Their sons joined them later; Brent was born in 1971 and Ryan was born in 1978. After having spent some time in Calgary working, John and Mary returned to Roblin to raise their boys and to work and live in the community. He was predeceased by his wife Mary in December of 2004, his parents Jack and Anne, and his brother Brian. John was a solitary man, but one who was immensely proud of his two sons, their hard work, and the lives they created with their own families. Earlier in life, he enjoyed creating special memories with his grandchildren as his health allowed. Later in life, he enjoyed birthday and holiday celebrations as he watched his grandchildren grow up. John discovered a love of small dogs as he would dog sit for both families. He spent countless hours driving around town with a dog in his truck or sitting at home, cuddling a lonely dog in his lap. John showed his love by doing things for his family and often did so by putting others first. Even in his last hours, he offered to sleep in the hospital room chair, in case Ryan would have preferred to take his bed. Ryan convinced Dad he was fine with the chair and that he should rest in his own bed. In his life, John faced many health issues including being run over by a tractor, Cancer, two heart attacks, COPD, and Dementia. Despite his health issues, John will be remembered for being a man who loved others by showing up to help out and for his great pride in his family.

 The family wishes to thank the staff at the Roblin Health Centre and the staff at the Grandview Personal Care Home for their countless acts of kindness to John. Your compassion helped John transition and cope as his health deteriorated so rapidly. We appreciate your thoughtfulness in the final days and hours of John’s life.  

Private Family Graveside was held November 29 at the Roblin District Cemetery with Pastor Randy Moffit officiating.
