Remembering Duncan Councillor John Horgan

City of Duncan Councillor, John Horgan, passed away on Monday, June 18, 2018. The City benefited from his thoughtful, measured approach to decision making since he was elected to Council in 2014.

Councillor Horgan owned and managed Discovery Honda for over 20 years before he was elected to City Council. He was a respected businessman and a dedicated community volunteer. While on City Council, he participated on the City’s Tourism Committee, Totem Sub-Committee, as well as numerous other regional committees, boards, and societies.

He served as the President of the South Cowichan Rotary Club, the President of the Duncan Day Break Rotary Club, the President of the Cowichan Golf & Country Club, Board Member and Chairman of the Board of Governors of Queen Margaret’s School, Board Member of the Community Options Society, and Assistant District Governor for Rotary International, USA and Canada.

“John loved the City and always worked for the benefit of our citizens,” said Duncan Mayor Phil Kent. “He was a caring, considerate person. He will be greatly missed.”

UBCM extends condolences to family, friends, and the greater community that will all miss his friendship and service. There will be no service at the request of Councillor Horgan. Those so desiring may make a donation in his memory to the Cowichan District Hospital Foundation, #101- 5822 Garden Street, Duncan BC, V9L 3V9.
