Obituary for John Barrie Corden

John Barrie Corden
August 18, 1943 - October 12, 2018

It is with sadness we announce the passing of Barrie on October 12, 2018, at the Brockville General Hospital at age 75. Barrie will be deeply missed by his wife Geraldine; daughters Karen and Debi (Rob Soria); granddaughters Kohl and Sarah; stepchildren Hugh, Keri (Gary Dayanandan), and Fraser; step grandchildren Kyle and Jade; sister Ruth Whiston, niece Fritha Fisher and her son Ben. He was predeceased by his parents Stanley and Marion; sister Amelia Corden; and aunt Ruth Low.

Born in Montreal, Barrie loved to play football and hockey and would spend summers at the family camp Birch Grove on Lac Quenouille. Barrie was a proud graduate of the Royal Military College of Canada, Class of 1965, and always spoke fondly of his time there and the friends he made. After graduation he was stationed in North Bay with the RCAF, earning the nickname Blast. He joined the private sector in 1969 and moved to Brockville with Jeri after his retirement. Barrie loved to fish, cook, read, tinker around the house, listen to music - especially Neil Diamond, and spend time with his family. We will miss his smile and hugs, his practical advice, those infamous lists, and of course that laugh.

The family wishes to thank the staff at the Brockville General Hospital ICU and Emergency departments for the compassion and care they provided during this difficult time.

Arrangements are entrusted to the Irvine Funeral Home, 45 James St., E. Following Barrie’s request there will be no funeral service and a private burial will be held at a later date. As expressions of sympathy donations to the Brockville General Hospital Foundation will be gratefully acknowledged. Send condolences or make a donation on line at
