Fondly remembered by Ellery Butula and John Fahie. Uncle John to Sue and Russell Revie and their children Cameron, Tara and Gillian. Also missed by his many nieces and nephews. He was awarded the Canadian Forces Decoration for his many years of service as a piper to the Toronto Scottish Regiment and then the 48th Highlanders of Canada. John lived a wonderfully long life. It was not without its trials and lost loves, but he lived it on his terms. Right to the end he enjoyed a good book, smoked his pipe, drank some wine and told a great story. He will be especially missed by his nephew Stephen.
