I am so saddened to hear of John's passing. John and I were pen-pals since he began his search for a new RV. He explained he had no internet capability, so it was my pleasure to correspond with him via snail mail. He expressed his appreciation for receiving my handwritten letters, that it was a lost art form... to which I agreed. We sent many letters back and forth over the past year. I hoped to meet him one day. Please know my thoughts and prayers go out to all who loved him, as he had an extremely positive impact on me. Much Love, Carolyn
Johnny will be missed by many!
So Sorry to hear that John has passed away. All your family will be in our prayers.. Frank & Lori Lemna

We send our condolenscences to the Hearn family. I will miss Johnny as I remember the conversations we had while waiting for our patients at the TBCC. He was a very giving person and his patients always came first.

On behalf of the entire Canadian Cancer Society, Alberta/NWT Division, please accept our sympathy. I met with Johnny a few times and quickly realized that he had a giant heart. There was nothing he wouldn't do for a cancer patient–he drove hundreds of patients to treatment and logged thousands of volunteer hours and miles in the fight against cancer. Given the 16-year duration of Johnny's volunteer driver work, and the adoration that he so rightly earned, we will always remember Johnny as a cancer fighter and community icon. We will miss him deeply.
From Dan Holinda, Executive Director and all of your friends at the Canadian Cancer Society Alberta/NWT Division

My Deepest Condolence to the family.
I will cherish the memories that Johhny and I shared for the last 15 years as he drove for the TBCC.
Johhny was a Special man that was always there for anyone,anytime.
He will be missed a great deal by many.
Johnny once told me that in the war during a particularly bad battle, he made a promise to himself that if he survived that day that he would spend the rest of his life smiling and laughing – anyone who knew Johnny knows that he kept that promise!
Headstrong, independent and not letting his limited education hold him back (he would proudly say that he only made it to grade 5, and look at what he accomplished!), Johnny spent his life serving his country, working hard to support his family, and helping countless strangers with care, compassion, and of course a smile and a laugh. I am very proud and honoured to have known, admire and love him for the past 14 years.
I know Johnny through the cancer center. He was a great man. I loved his stories. He will be deeply missed. My thoughts are with you and your family.
Grampa Johnnie, be at peace. You served well. Sandra and Bob Baker
Johnny, you were my "volunteer inspiration". I learned so much from you about giving back. God bless you.
We are very sorry for your lost. We always enjoyed John's visits to Wisconsin. We enjoyed some great card games, stories and war history with him.
Your family is in our thoughts and prayers.
Blessing to your whole family.
