 John Heinrichs

1973 – 2022

John Heinrichs died on Saturday January 29, 2022 at the age of 48 due to an unfortunate snowmobiling accident. He was a loving husband to Susie for just under 24 years. He was also an amazing father to his two sons, Steven and Dustin.

John was born on April 17, 1973 in Paraguay to David and Helena Heinrichs. He grew up in a Christian family with his three brothers and four sisters and worked on the family farm for most of his early life. He accepted Christ at a young age, and got baptized in Mary 1996. He found the love of his life and married her in 1998. They moved to Canada three years later. Shortly after the move, he started working at Parkside as a salesperson. Over the last 19 years he worked his way up to become General Manager where he excelled at solving problems. He was passionate about his relationships with all the staff and proceeded to become part owner. He was always ready to listen and not quick to speak. He was a prominent member of the Zion Mennonite Church and loved to teach children in Sunday School about the love of Jesus. He enjoyed spending time with his family and doing anything from dirt biking to gardening. He will be remembered as being a loving husband and father; a person who always lent a hand where needed and did the best he could to always do what was right while having a smile on his face.

He is survived by his wife, Susie, son, Steven and his wife, Esther and his son, Dustin. He was predeceased by his father, David. He will be dearly missed by his family, many friends and colleagues.
