GALLAGHER, John Robert

John Robert Gallagher, much loved son of Valerie Carder and the late Shannon Gallagher passed away in Syria on November 4, 2015.  He is survived by his sisters Erin Gallagher and Lily Gallagher and step brother Justen Carder.  Predeceased by his step father Ian Carder.  Blenheim Community Funeral Home entrusted with Funeral Arrangements.

This is Valerie.

First of all, I would like to thank everyone so much for their great show of support on Friday, as John Robert returned to Chatham-Kent. Thank you all very, very much. It was wonderful to see such respect and compassion. Thank you for the signs and pictures and flags; for standing on bridges, beside trucks, and in fields; thank you to the Kurdish community for accompanying him and to the people of Blenheim for receiving him.

There was so much organization involved and we would like also to express our sincere gratitude to the Canadian Heroes Foundation for making this happen. The expression of support we received from Canadians yesterday would not have been possible without them.

As a family, we now have the opportunity to have a little time with John Robert – to feel like he is home and to begin to process everything.

However, we do now also have a date for a celebration of life / funeral, to take place this Tuesday Nov. 24 in Toronto. It will be held at Liuna Local 183, from 3 – 6 in the afternoon.

The address is 1263 Wilson Ave., Toronto, ON M3M 3G3.

So much of our focus thus far has been to bring John Robert home, and now that has been accomplished, we would like to let everyone have a chance to say goodbye.

As you may know, Erin has set up an email so that anyone who is interested can share photographs or let us know if they are interested in sharing memories or stories on Tuesday. That email again is johngallaghersfamily@gmail.com.

Thank you again for the honour you have shown my son and for your support to our family.
