John McLellan

The family of John J. McLellan is heartbroken to announce his passing on Sunday, May 28, 2023 at age 82. He was surrounded by his family and a room full of love.

John was born on February 10, 1941 in Halifax, Nova Scotia and grew up in Montreal, Quebec.

He also began what was to become a 34-year career at Campbell Soup Company. He retired in 1999 as an Area Manager.

John will be lovingly remembered by his wife of 34 years, Sherry; daughter, Mindy Corr, and son-in-law, Ed Corr; and the sunshine in his life, his granddaughters Emily and Sarah. He is also survived by sister-in-law, Jean Viegas, and brother-in-law, Bob Viegas, and many nieces and nephews.
