I had the pleasure of knowing John as a friend first and then as a boss. He was much admired in both capacities and I extend my deepest condolences to the family. I was able to visit John occasionally in the last few years and the cheerfulness never waivered. We've lost a good one, Rest in Peace my friend.

For many years John was a volunteer Board Member and Treasurer for the Chatham-Kent MS Chapter. He was also a great influence in raising funds for the Chapter; especially with our annual Walk which Lori Coordinated for several years. John loved his computer and taught me how to use one.

John also taught me that although his life wasn’t exactly what he had envisioned for his Golden Years he wasn’t about to complain.

John you lived a good and productive life, you will be missed.
