I am so sad John is no longer in our lives. He was a wonderful neighbor and very proud of his 2 daughters. I will so miss our chats while shoveling snow and doing yard work. My deepest condolences to Janet, Emma and Kate.

I got to know John through our mutual love of the music of XTC. (I live just across the border in Montana.) John was a kind, thoughtful, intelligent and incredibly funny man. I'm so sorry for your loss, and our loss.

Please accept our deepest sympathies on the passing of John. I first met John when his family moved to Majestic Crescent in Abbotsford. We attended the same elementary, junior and senior high schools. John was always kind, thoughtful and happy. May God comfort you and your family during this time of sadness and grief. I am so sorry for your loss. Leslie Smyth (nee Frego) and family.

John is dearly missed. It has been an honour and a pleasure to have known (if even only through internet) this kind, thoughtful and very talented man. He always had a kind word for others, encouraging them and showing that he cared. My deepest condolences to his family and all his loved ones.
