Please share a memory of John to include in a keepsake book for family and friends.
It is with great sadness that we announce the passing of John Ryan MacTaggart on March 16, 2023, at age 44. Born in St. John’s, Newfoundland, he was the son of John and Teresa MacTaggart (Buote). John Ryan is survived by his parents, John and Teresa; brother Nathan; stepmom, Seble Afework; half-brothers Mathias and Noah as well as many aunts, uncles, and cousins. John Ryan loved sports, especially Football, Hockey and Baseball. If there was a game on tv then he was there cheering on his favourite team. He also enjoyed discussing cars, those that none of us could ever afford. John Ryan lit up the room whenever he entered. He always sported a huge smile and was full of his brand of dry humour. John Ryan loved spending time with family and his best friends Roxane and Glen. A private family viewing to celebrate John Ryan's life was held between 4 p.m. and 6 p.m. on Monday, March 20, 2023, in T.J.
