John Victor Kastelic

April 23, 1960 ~ July 3, 2017 (age 57)

Peacefully at Headwaters Health Care Centre, Orangeville at the age of 57.  John Kastelic moved from Toronto to Erin with his soul mate Marilyn in 1993. Together, they built a beautiful life for his three children, Luke, Risa, and Katrina. His fierce kindness was a gift to all who knew him, enriching his family, church, and community. His smile was able to light up a room until his last breath. He died surrounded by a loving and grateful family on July 3, 2017.  John is survived by his brother Frank Kastelic (Stefne) and their children Karlie, Jakob and Tess and his sister Ottilia Lockhard (Peter) and their children Carson and Tara.  John is predeceased by his parents Victor and Ottilie Kastelic.  John will be fondly remembered by all his extended family, his business associates and his dear friends.  The family would like to thank all the Doctors and Nursing staff at Headwaters Health Care (F-Wing) for their kindness and compassion at a very difficult time.
