A truly "jolly", friendly gentleman who was lots of fun and enjoyed family, friends and curling. He will be missed by all who knew him. My sympathies to you, Jane, Anne and Gord, Libby and Mark, Blair and Ann and your families. Remember the good times!

Hi Jane
So sorry to hear of John's death. I did see him not to long ago at our Probus meeting.

Bill Herridge of Herridge/Duncan enterprises.

I'm not sure if you remember George & myself but we were the janitors that would come & do the cleaning. I'll not forget

the morning we showed up early & the two of you thought it was a break in [John came rushing down to see what was happening]

many great times were spent with you two having coffee and shooting the breeze.

Very sorry to hear of John's passing. He was a friendly and helpful colleague. Unfortunately we are out of the country and so cannot attend his party.
