John K. Nolan

April 1, 1950 to November 17, 2019

Obituary

It is with deep sadness that our family announces the passing of the man we all loved, John K. Nolan, on November 17th, 2019 in his 69th year.  John leaves with love and cherished memories his loving wife of 47 years, Leady (Alethia Pynn) and their two sons and wives C.J. and Andrea, Adam and Sarah.

Poppy loved his six darling Grandchildren more than anything, he was devoted and committed in everything they did.  Nathan, Emma, Sam, Kate, Max and Piper will forever remember their poppy with love.

John will be dearly missed by his brothers and sisters: Joslyn Murphy (Gerald), Maurice Nolan (Frances), Sally Maclachlan (Dan), Sam Nolan (Maggie), Jim Nolan (Jima), Colin Nolan (Wanda), Ramona Nolan (Fox Jones) & Renee Nolan. His sisters-in-law: Myrtle Parsley, Ginny Dunn (Ed), Leslie Reid & Lori Pynn (Cliff).

Predeceased by his parents, Samuel & Mary Nolan, his sister, Ann Marie Nolan, his nephew, Mark Nolan, his parents-in-law, Lewis and Jean Pynn, sisters-in-law, Vivian Pynn & Sis Reid, brothers-in-law Chris Parsley and Ford Ryan.

John leaves behind a great legacy as a prominent businessman in the insurance industry for 50 years.  As the Owner and Chairman of Munn Insurance he was proud of the business he helped build and grow.  He viewed the insurance industry as a people business, and he took pride in the people of the Munn Insurance family who made Munn Insurance the company it is today. 

As a community leader he volunteered hundreds of hours as President & Executive member, coach, hockey and soccer dad and mentor to many at Mount Pearl Soccer, Mount Pearl Minor hockey and the Boys & Girls Club.  As a loving family man and wonderful friend, John enjoyed going to his grandchildren’s activities and golfing with friends at Bally Haly (St. John’s) & Stoneybrook (Sarasota).

The Nolan family would like to thank Dr. Paul Jackman, Dr. Joy McCarthy, Dr. Cheryl Hurley and all the staff at the Miller Center Palliative Care unit.  To all of his friends and loved ones who gave him and his family support during his illness, we thank you.

Relatives and friends are welcome to visit the family at Carnell’s Funeral Home, 329 Freshwater Road on Wednesday, November 20 and Thursday, November 21 from 1-4 p.m. and 6-9 p.m.  Funeral Mass will be held on Friday, November 22, 2019 at 11 a.m. from St. Patrick’s Church, Patrick Street, St. John’s. Interment to follow at Mount Carmel Catholic Cemetery, The Boulevard, St. John’s.  A Celebration of John’s life will take place at Bally Haly Country Club after the interment on Friday afternoon and evening.

Sorry for your loss. Your dads smile is something I remember from my childhood.

i just wanted to say how sorry I was to hear about John. He was a truly nice guy and I have a lot of good memories of playing baseball and hockey with him on Bell Island in our younger days. He always had a positive attitude and he will be missed.

CJ and Adam, I am sorry to hear about John’s passing. While I only worked with him for a short while, he left a lasting impression. You are in my thoughts.

CJ and Adam, I’m so sorry to hear about your dad’s passing. I only met him a few times but it was obvious how much he loved his family. You and your families are in my thoughts and prayers.

Hello Leahy, CJ and Adam,

I am writing you to say how sad I am to hear of John’s passing. My name is Barry Squires and I knew John through the Mount Pearl Soccer Assn. I remember going upto your house on my motorcycle in the mid-1980’s when I was 16 and involved in the Mt Peal Soccer Summer camps. John would just be home from work and would be so happy to see the two little boys running out to the door to greet him.. He would sign some cheques for me and ask me how things were going at the soccer hut. He always had a big smile, time for everyone and was someone I always looked up to and respected.

I wish I could be there to pay my respects for all the time he volunteered, spent with us at the soccer field and just generally being a great guy and role model to a lot of us growing up in Mt Pearl in sports. I am happy to see that a good friend, and fellow soccer player, Paul Jackman, played a role in his care. My sincerest condolences.

All our love, thoughts and prayers are with you. You’re a special family and we are so blessed to be counted among you as friends, and to have shared in the life of Mr. Nolan.

Paul, Melissa and the whole Preston Family

Leady and family, was soo sorry to hear of Sammy’s passing, it was just in June while visiting St.John’s that we had a coffee and spent a nice hour or so reminiscing about Bell Island and how life has been good to both of us. You could tell how proud he was of the boys, and that family meant everything to him. He enjoyed telling me about your golf exploits (the both of you) , he was soo optimistic about the future. He figured that his illness was just a minor set back .

Deepest sympathy and condolence.

Sincerely,
Owen Kelly

We shared many fun times and laughs over the years and I will always remember them with a smile. Take comfort in your memories of life , laughter and love with John and know he is smiling down on you today and always. Rest Peacefully John. You will be missed!

I met John Nolan in 2002, when I first joined the staff at Adjusters Inc. I was intimidated at first, as he had such a commanding presence about him. However over the years, I learned that he was a presence that commanded excellence from his staff so that Munn’s customers could have the best service possible. The intimidation I felt grew into respect. I also found that John had a sense of humor and always made me smile, even in the midst of work chaos. My heart goes out to Mrs. Nolan, CJ and Adam and the rest of the family. Cherish the memories.

On behalf of the Board of Directors, President and staff of the Newfoundland and Labrador Construction Association, we would like to express our heart felt condolences.

Adam and CJ I’m so sorry to hear of your Dad’s passing. Thoughts and prayers are with you and your families during this challenging time. In the days ahead may the good memories you hold close provide you some comfort.

Dear Adam, Sarah, & Nolan Family, you are in our thoughts & prayers, during this difficult time.
May your happy memories, along with the love & support of family & friends bring you comfort. Sincerely, Theresa & Dave

If you’re lucky , you meet someone in your lifetime that helps shape you in a positive manner. And John did that for me when we first met as young parents through our children enrolled in sports in Mount Pearl . John encouraged me to , as he did, to get involved through volunteering in community life . His leadership, guidance, support and confidence led me to a most rewarding lifetime of volunteer involvement for which I will remain forever in his debt.

Our chance encounter some thirty plus years ago has enriched the lives of not only myself and my family, but many others who have had the good fortune of getting to know John along the way.

Leady, C.J., Adam and family, … myself , Wanda , Melanie and Francis offer our most sincere condolences to you at this most difficult time .

Leady, Christopher, Adam and families,
We have been saddened since hearing the news of John’s death and been thinking of you and send you our sincerest sympathy.
We met at the bowling alley some 45 years ago, two couples who became good friends (mediocre bowlers!) as we bowled together for many years. During those years our children were born and we shared many good times together. As often happens, life took us in different directions but we always knew what was happening in each other lives (thanks to Facebook recently!) and we often reminisce about those times.
We know that you are a strong, loving family and will get through the challenging days ahead as you mourn the loss and celebrate the life of an amazing husband, dad, grandfather and much more to so many people. We wish we could be there to share this time but know that we are holding you in thought and prayer.
Love – Shirley and Henry

I am so sorry to hear about John’s passing. As a fellow Canadian and avid golfer, John and I connected at Stoneybrook and would often compare notes about what we were practicing on the range. He was a very sweet man who I always enjoyed speaking with.
To his family and friends: I hope you find strength in your memories. He will be missed and remembered fondly.

If you were fair to him he was fair to you and if you weren’t he sure let you know it in the nicest kind of way.

That is the kind of man he was and I will never forget his everlasting smile. May family and friends comfort you during this difficult time and continue to make him proud of you as I know he was. Rest in peace John.
