You take with you the last living memory of a war that never needed to be fought. Regardless, you served and no one anywhere has the right to say you didn't serve well and that you didn't contribute to making this a better world.
John Babcock did all of that.
With condolences and respect to his family and friends. 146th Overseas Battalion, Canadian Expeditionary Force and The Royal Canadian Regiment.
The last surviving Canadian veteran of The Great War 1914 - 1918.
Died of natural causes at the age of 109 years.
