It is with great sadness that the family of John K. Lockwood announces his passing at the Grass Nursing home on April 18, 2024. Born in Moncton, he was the son of the late John (Truin) and Thelma (Smith) Lockwood. 

John was a retired engineer for the Moncton Foundry and Machine. He was a member of St. Bernard's Catholic Church and the Knights of Columbus.  John and Diane enjoyed travelling together to many places over the years and spent many winters at their home in Florida. He enjoyed sailing and golf. In 1971 he built a 34-foot sailing yacht solo, which was one of his proudest accomplishments. He was also an avid Ham radio operator and most nights the call sign VE9KC would be on the air. 

John was the last surviving member of his immediate family. Aside from his parents, he was predeceased by his wife Diane (Letterick) Lockwood and Brother James (Jim) Lockwood (Annette), sister Mary (Harold) Bailey, and brother-in-law Carl Steeves.

He will be missed by sister-in-law Bonnie Steeves, Nephews Gregory (Margaret) Steeves, Geoffrey (Mary) Steeves, and Niece Tracey (Ralph) Steeves, in addition to great nieces and nephews. 

The family would like to thank the staff of Grass Nursing Home for their excellent care over the past year. In lieu of flowers, donations can be made to Harvest House or a charity of the donor's choice.

A time to celebrate John's life and share memories will take place on Monday, April 22, 2024 at 2:00 pm at Cobb's Funeral Home & Cremation Centre 330 Whitepine Road Riverview, NB  (506-869-2007). Online condolences can be made at
