It is with heavy hearts we an­nounce the death of John Michael Gromack who passed on Novem­ber 12, 2017, in the Glace Bay Hos­pi­tal.

John was born in Glace Bay, Fe­bru­ary 17, 1928, the son of Sam and Mary (Fi­olek) Gromack.

John is sur­vived by his wife, Genevieve of 66 years; sons, Greg (Debbie), Kevin, Rob (Gail); daugh­ter, Mary­beth (Blair); lov­ing grand­chil­dren, Aimee, John, Alina, Kalen, Bran­don, Matthew, Breagh, Jenna and Sa­muel; and great­grand­chil­dren, Rowan, Ben, Isaac, and Luke. John will watch over us with many angels in­clud­ing his son, John Michael (pre­de­ceased fol­low­ing birth 1952).

John was an ac­tive mem­ber of his com­mu­nity over the years; serv­ing as Coun­cil­lor and Deputy Mayor; ac­tive mem­ber of KOC and ac­tive mem­ber of St. Eu­gene’s Par­ish. John re­tired from NS Power af­ter 26 years of em­ploy­ment and worked 12 years with Syd­ney Steel Plant. A man with great strength and full of grace; a quiet de­meanour with lit­tle words but much wis­dom & love.
