John Trischuk, retired McGill Physics Professor and beloved husband of Miriam Cooper, died after a lengthy
illness. John was the son of the late William and Nellie Trischuk. He was born in Kamsack, Saskatchewan, grew up in Edmonton, Alberta, and attended McGill University and the California Institute of Technology. John is survived by his son David Trischuk; his adopted daughter Bonnie Galvin; his step children Sean and Heather Lafleur; his grandchildren Michelle Ford, Esme and Sebastien Lafleur, Gretchen and Cecily Heller; his brothers Ernie and Ron Trischuk; his sister Janet Crane; his nephews William, Ken and Stephen Trischuk; his niece Christine Romeo. The family is grateful for the loving care and devotion John received from Nurse Beryl Morris during the last three years of his illness. Special thanks also go to care-givers Omar Richards and Victoria Moraes. We commend the members of the staff at St. Margaret Residential Centre for their excellent service and care. In memory of John, any contributions to The Faculty of Science Dean's Impact Fund of McGill University would be greatly appreciated. Internment private.
