It is with profound sadness that we announce the peaceful passing of our beloved brother Johnny with family by his side on Wednesday, December 9, 2020 at Health Sciences North at the age of 82 years. Born in Rouyn-Noranda, QC, he was the son of the late John and Therese Brkljacich (nee Frechette). Loving brother of Norman “Berky” (Jean), Susan (Bob), Silvio (Bernita), and Alice (Brian). He will be missed by many nieces, nephews, extended family members and friends. Johnny was a jack of all trades, he started his own business and was Dowling’s first ever garbage man, he was a truck driver for Day Construction in its early years, a school bus driver, and worked for the City of Greater Sudbury in the Dowling and Levack arenas. Johnny did a lot of plumbing for his friends and neighbors, repaired water pumps, and in his spare time he liked to collect stamps among other hobbies. He loved listening to country music, gardening and going to yard sales. In keeping with Johnny’s wishes, there will be no visitation or service.
