It is with great sadness we announce the unexpected passing of John David Killen, age 69, of Springhill. John passed away at home on Friday, October 20th, 2023.

Born in Springhill, NS , he was a son of the late Angus Frank and Dorothy May (Kitson) Killen.

John used to work for a siding company many years ago before he fell and hurt the discs in his back and could no longer work. John's loved to go for drives into the country areas to look at the scenery. He was also one who enjoyed dancing and partying with his friends. 

John made friends wherever he'd go, everyone who knew him loved him. He was a very special person who judged no one and was always helping others. He could always put a smile on anyone's face, followed by laughter when they felt their world was falling apart. He had the gift to make a person feel special. John loved his family more than anything. He will definitely be missed by all who knew him.

John will be dearly missed by his niece, whom he considered his daughter Leanna Killen-Leblanc (Mathieu), Tammy (Darren Coates) DiMichele, his great nephews Nicholas, Nolan, Travis, Dominick, Justin, Jeffrey, Brandon, Jarett, and Cameron. Nieces Olivia and Alexis(Nigel) Gallant. Sister-in- law Leah Killen. As well as several cousins. 

Besides his parents, he was predeceased by his brother Leonard Killen, his nephew Lee Killen, his dog Keno and his uncle Gerald. 

We love you Papa John!! Xoxo
