It is with deep sadness that we announce the passing of Mr. John Brassington, at the young age of 65. Mr. Brassington was suddenly and tragically killed in a motor vehicle accident while driving on Highway 97 near Clinton, BC on Thursday, April 21.
Mr. Brassington epitomized what it means to be a true Juggler; he was dedicated, loyal, and committed to our school community for over fifty years, as a student (Class of ’69), an alumnus, and as a teacher (1979-2016). Some of his important roles at Notre Dame included: co-athletic director, coaching football, basketball (boys and girls), and track and field, and serving every team and club within the school as a faithful bus driver. He was an esteemed colleague, friend, and mentor for staff and students alike.
Mr. Brassington is survived by his wife, our very own Mrs. Eileen Brassington, and by his three children: CJ (Class of 2007), William (Class of 2009), and Samantha (Class of 2012).
When someone we love is in heaven, we have a little bit of heaven in our home.
