Cook Southland Funeral Chapel - Moldon(2018)

John Allan Moldon passed away suddenly in Medicine Hat, Alberta on Wednesday, May 2, 2018, after a long struggle with mental illness. He was born in Charlottetown, PEI on July 5, 1970, grew up in Dartmouth, NS and Ottawa, ON and worked in Ottawa and Medicine Hat in the restaurant and trucking industries. John was kind and generous with a quiet and witty sense of humour. He will be missed greatly. Treasuring their many happy memories are his parents, Ruth and John Moldon of Dartmouth; his sisters, Margaret, Cheryl and Bess and the many other family members and friends whose lives he enriched. A memorial with family and friends will be held at a later date.

    Dear John and Ruth
    I was saddened this morning to read of your son's death and am thinking of how sad it is to lose one's child. Parents are not supposed to have to bury their children. Please accept my deepest sympathy and condolences.

    Very sorry to hear of John's sudden passing.

    John was a frequent visitor to the Medicine Hat Public Library. We'd talked on several occasions about his previous lines of work and how he was hoping to get on at Subway for something different to do.

    John was always pleasant and quite clear on which internet computers were the best to use and which patrons to keep an eye on. He will be missed.
