I fell deeply honored to have known John and to have walked beside him at a New Democratic convention (Winnipeg). We will all miss John's quiet humour and steadfast character!
I will miss seeing John at the JdF Seniors Centre. My condolences to you, Chris, and the rest of the family. I hope your memories of John will help you through your journey of grief.
So sorry for your loss Chris. We always counted on John to keep us up to date on the neighbourhood news and of course gardening tips were invaluable. We too will miss seeing him on his daily walks, always equipped with a bag to gather treasures along the way. Yes Rockwell not be the same. Our hearts go out you Chris. Jan and Harold
We were very influenced by John, Chris. I remember him befriending Erinne when she was just a little toddler - and now she is 16. I remember his endless fascination and joyful enthusiasm for all things grown. I remember his fierce commitment to community and politics. It must be such a tremendous loss for you. Remember I'm just across the fence. John and I shot the breeze many a day over the years. Maybe I'll see you (and him) out there sometime! Wishing you a gentle transition to your new life and loving, nourishing memories of your life partner. He will be missed. Julia, Erinne, Brian and Aimee
My deepest condolences Chris. I will miss John very much. I always enjoyed our conversations at the club. He was a kind gentleman. Gisèle
We will miss seeing John out walking along the Gorge. Rockwell won't be the same without him.
Sorry Chris for your loss. I met John on a couple of garden tours, including his own garden. Always helpful, always experimenting and sharing his knowledge from a long and varied life. Great guy who has moved on to a new sphere of influence. Best of luck John.
So sorry to hear of John's passing. He was a great fellow. As I would tease him, BPOE stood for the best people on earth. He always agreed.
Our sympathy to Chris and the rest of John's family.
Well done thy worthy & faithful servant. We will miss your direction & wisdom & laughter John & thank you for being a great Elks Brother to us. You will not be forgotten.
