John Mark Spann (23 Feb 1957 - 6 Jan 2018)

Funeral Service

Emmanuel Uniting Church 92 Laurel Street Enoggera 4051
23rd Jan 2018

In loving memory of John Mark Spann who sadly passed away on 6th January 2018

SPANN John Mark “Wal” “Gone Fishing”

Originally from Brisbane and lately of Lae, PNG and Mitchelton; John passed away peacefully in the Royal Brisbane and Women’s Hospital surrounded by the love of his family on Saturday 6th January 2018. At the time of his passing he was just 60 years of age.

John will be sadly missed by his loving wife and soulmate, Michele, and his close family and friends, each of whom remember him as a kind, generous and loving handy man, who could fix anything no matter who asked him.

I am sure that wherever John is, he will be surrounded by his children that never took breath, family members and his adoring dogs, with a line in the water waiting for the big one to bite. Consequently, it is fitting that we should remember the fisherman’s prayer
God grant that I may live
To fish until my dying day.
And when it comes to my last cast,
I then most humbly pray
When in the Lords safe landing net
I’m peacefully asleep.
That in his mercy I be judged
As good enough to keep

Michele, I am convinced that no one better than God, understands the depth of your pain and can help you cope with your disquieting thoughts. I hope that in due time your family receives God’s peace that excels all thought, so that it will guard your hearts and your mental powers by means of Christ Jesus. God is called the Father of tender mercies and the God of all comfort, who comforts us in all our tribulation. Rest assured that he cares for all his creatures and he would never bring us suffering. A soothing scripture I like is Psalm 34:18 which reads: “Jehovah is near to those that are broken at heart, and those who are crushed in spirit he saves.” He promised that in the Paradise, we will have the prospect of enjoying life without end, free from all problems, accidents, and sickness. Even our dead loved ones like John will be resurrected. (Psalm 37:9, 29; John 5:28, 29) With all my sympathy for the loss of someone so cherished.
