Remembering Councillor John Horgan

It is with deep sadness that the City of Duncan reports the passing of Councillor John Horgan on Monday, June 18, 2018. The City has benefited from John’s thoughtful, measured approach to decision making since he was elected to Council in 2014.

John owned and managed Discovery Honda for over 20 years before he was elected to City Council. He was a respected businessman and a dedicated community volunteer. John served as the President of the South Cowichan Rotary Club, the President of the Duncan Day Break Rotary Club, the President of the Cowichan Golf & Country Club, Board Member and Chairman of the Board of Governors of Queen Margaret’s School, Board Member of the Community Options Society and Assistant District Governor for Rotary International, USA and Canada. While on City Council, John participated on the City’s Tourism Committee, Totem Sub-Committee, as well as numerous other regional committees, boards and societies.

“John loved the City and always worked for the benefit of our citizens,” said Mayor Kent. “He was a caring, considerate person. He will be greatly missed.”

On behalf of City Council and staff, we wish to extend our condolences to John’s family, friends, and the greater community that will all miss his friendship and service.

At John’s request there will be no service.  Those so desiring may make a donation in John’s memory to the Cowichan District Hospital Foundation, #101- 5822 Garden Street, Duncan BC, V9L 3V9.
