Jean and family, I am sorry to hear of Johns passing, I have many fond memories of pool parties at our house in Valleyview where John always had a smile and was ready to share a laugh and perhaps a pint or two. Deb Winiski (Carlson)

Psalm 90:10 says that the days of our years are 70 years, And if because of special mightiness they are 80 years.
May the memories of the wonderful times you shared together bring a smile and joy in your heart.


We are so saddened to hear of Johns passing. When someone you have known for years is so vibrant and full of life, its difficult to believe that they are no longer among us. John was certainly someone all of us would do well to emulate; spending his retirement years actively enjoying the outdoors, travelling, and in service to his community.

Sorry to say goodbye , John. We go back a long, long way.(Beeston 1942 ) Just regret we weren't able to see each other at all in the last few years. But I will be remembering you always.

Our thoughts and prayers are with Jean and family during this difficult time. I have many fond memories with the Crowe family, skiing at Tod Mtn. Regards John and Murielle Carlson

I last saw Johnwhen he, Jean and the kids came to England for John's brother-in-laws funeral a few years ago and was pleased to be able to see them all again. My children always referred to him as John the Scarecrow and we still remember him by that name. He was a wonderful...

John was truly an outstanding person whose zest for life and family was a model for others.His word was his bond. We are sad to see his passing but look back at a great life.

Jean and family, I am so sorry for your loss. It was a pleasure to know John and work with him on a number of Rotary projects, (remembering the Christmas floats). As a fellow Brit, we shared a passion for British cars and were able to share a number of "car stories". A life well lived.
