Kimberley Health Centre Chair passes away

John Iacobucci was with the Kimberley Health Centre since its inception in 2002.

John Iacobucci may have only lived in Kimberley a little over ten years, but every minute of that time was spent engaged in the community, for the most part as Chair of the Kimberley Health Centre Society, says Mayor Ron McRae.

McRae announced Monday morning that the longtime Chair had passed away over the weekend.

“John was with the Health Centre since its inception,” McRae said. “He was one of the original board members and took over as chair in the first year. It is a credit to John that the Kimberley Health Centre became a reality. It’s a big loss for our community.”

McRae said Iacobucci came to Kimberley for the same reason many others do, one of his children lived here.

“He lived here for ten plus years,” McRae said. “But he became engaged in the community quite quickly. It’s really sad.”
