He worked at MacMillan Bloedel, Copper Canyon division, for most of his working life and was a member of Mount Brenton Golf course for many years. Johnny was in the Royal Canadian Engineers during WW2 in Europe and a member of the Chemainus branch of the Royal Canadian Legion. A true gentleman, he was blessed with a memory like no others and never ran out of new things to tell everyone. Always with a smile !! He took great pleasure in his family, his many friends and all of their children over the years. He watched most sports, loved to garden and loved and cared for his dog, Bandit, who was his constant companion. He also had a lifelong love and great knowledge of airplanes and recently enjoyed spending the day at the Comox Air Show. The family would like to give a special thank you to his homecare giver, Lanna, and to the girls from We Care, who cared for him so well over the last few years.Thank you also to the nurses and staff at CDH who cared so well for Johnny.
