You will be so missed. I have some wonderful memories of you and I will never forget them. Sending love to your family. Rest in peace good sir.
I am so sorry to hear about John. Please accept my deepest condolences to the whole family.
My deepest condolences to Sylvia and her girls. I’m so glad he had you all in his life. Although we haven’t seen each other in many years Jackie, you’re still my Father, and I loved you. Rest in peace Dad.
Very sorry to see a friend and work companion go. Very proud to say we knew john and will be always remembered.
I met John in 1979 in Surrey B.C. We had a special kind of bond even my own brothers didn’t have. Not one bad word was ever spoken between us. John helped everybody, friends, family and even strangers in need. I never knew a person ever that had a bigger heart than John. He was so much fun to be with, I could go on and on about big John. Half my heart is gone now, and I cant bring myself yet and believe he is gone. My heart goes out to Silvia his great wife, the one he loved the most in this world. Silvias daughters who he loved as his own. My love to you Silvia and the family
