Information on John Schleppe's Memorial for any interested.It is with sadness that I share the passing of John Schleppe, who passed away on January 7, 2020 after a short but valiant battle with cancer. He was described by his son Michael as a brilliant engineer, skilled archer, avid outdoorsman, and beloved brother, father, and grand father. What our members may not realize is that it was thanks to John's tireless work that we were able to host so many of the amazing events that we did over the last 20 years. John gave tirelessly to our club through events, range upkeep, our Board and countless hours of generous mentoring. We are sad to loose such a wonderful member of our archery family.
John's memorial service will be held at Park Memorial Chapel - McInnis & Holloway Funeral Home located at 5008 Elbow Dr. S.W. on Tuesday, January 14, 2020 at 2:30 and all are welcome to attend. ... See MoreSee Less
It is with profound sadness and heartfelt condolences to Vickilynne and family on the passing of John Schleppe of Calgary. John along with his family were long time members of Calgary Archers. His contribution to the archery world in Calgary, Provincially and Nationally was immeasurable. He worked tirelessly to support his wife, children and countless others involved in the sport in the Calgary area. He was always the first person at the range and last to leave. John always had kind words of support and encouragement for anyone who asked. He would tell you what you needed to hear. His presence will truly be missed by many. "Shoot straight" friend.
