So sorry to hear about John’s passing. He was always so helpful to my Mom, Theresa Wright when he was still living down the street from her in Coronation subdivision. I enjoyed my talks with John and all his good advice. He will be missed but I’m sure he will be glad to join his beloved Marg. Thoughts and prayers to you all.

Danny (I have always known you as - fondly). My deepest condolences to you and family. Raelyn let me know (I am not on FB) about Uncle John’s passing. My heart is filled with such beautiful memories of the truly wonderful man your dad was to us all. Fond memories of when he brought Jake out to the farm to ride his dirt bike - Braden giving Jake his bucket of Rescue Rangers. Your dad helping me refinish a dining room table. The most important is the love he had for you Danny (as you know) - your mom and him always so so proud of their son. Such love!! Their hearts overflowing with the joy of you their son. I let Daniel (my bro) know as well he is in Nova Scotia now. Danny - sending so much love for you - and the wonderful loving father (and mother). They are together now - as they have always been in spirit. XO

John was the very first person I met when I moved into the building. He was a lovely sweet man. He was so kind and friendly when he saw my dog; always taking time to speak with her and give her a pet. He will be missed.
