It is with heavy hearts that we announce the passing of Karl-Johan Stenberg. Surrounded by family on Wednesday, April 17, 2019, he passed away in Hudson, where he called home for 43 years. Johan was born in Vissefjärda, Sweden, to the late Gurli (nee Petersson) and Erik Stenberg. He was the youngest brother of Kajs-Mari (Tom), Karl-Erik (Ulla), Karl-Gustav (Stina), and Ann-Charlott (Anthony).

Johan is survived by his son Matthew (Ayse); daughters Melinda (Mike) and Lenora (Andrew); their mother Lois Stenberg (nee Marcotte); his beloved grandchildren Kyla, Lukas, Erol, Lilly, Erik, Eva, and Markus; his in-laws the late Frank and Rita, Donna, Bill (Faye), Steve (Geri) and Nina; his nieces and nephews; and his great nieces and great nephews.

Johan enjoyed spending time in nature walking, running, kayaking, biking, skiing or on his motorcycle. He was a talented potter and cabinet maker. His creativity and attention to detail is evident in all his work. Most dear to Johan’s heart was his family. He was a devoted son, brother, father and grandfather who taught his children and grandchildren the value of traditions and the importance of family. He was a true friend, who will be remembered for his sense of humour, bright smile, and genuine compassion. Loved dearly by family and friends, he will forever be remembered.

A celebration of Johan’s life will take place at the Stephen F. Shaar Community Centre (394 Main Road, Hudson), on the 11th of May 3:00 pm to 5:00 pm.

The family wishes to sincerely thank the staff and volunteers at the Palliative Care Residence in Hudson, for their exceptional care and compassion.

In lieu of flowers, donations can be made in Johan’s memory to The Vaudreuil-Soulanges Palliative Care Residence.
