With sad hearts we say goodbye to our beloved, Son, Dad, Brother, Uncle and Gramps. John was predeceased by his beloved wife Helen of 43 years. He will be sadly missed by his mother Jenny, Uncle Carl "Toby", his sons; Bill, David (Kate), and Dan (Yvonne) and Grandchildren, Kylie, Penny, Ayden and Addison, Kaeden, Jackson and Luke; sister Fay (Bob) and nieces Serene (Rachel) and Andrea and all of his wonderful extended family here in town, Ontario, Australia, New Zealand and the UK and many friends.
John grew up in Quebec until he was 14 years old then the family moved to Vancouver, BC. He met the love of his life Helen in 1963 at the Kerrisdale skating rink, married in 1965 and moved to the Pemberton Heights in North Vancouver where they raised their three boys and built many long lasting friendships.
After serving his apprenticeship as a sheet metal worker John went into roofing. In 1981, John started his business Halmac Roofing with his Uncle Carl. Over those many years he was proud to have had many lasting working relationships based on respect and the quality of his workmanship.
