This day, January 19, 2020, is a very sad day for us, the family of John Mossop of New Victoria, as God took him home today.
John was born in New Waterford on November 20, 1929. He was a son of the late Clem and Sarah Elizabeth (Harker) Mossop.
Da spent all his working days in several coal mines. When Da wasn't working, he would take his family and friends to his favorite place, his cabin in Framboise, where many good times were spent. He enjoyed hunting, fishing and going on long rides in the country. Da will be remembered most of all for his Great Sense of Humor.
