We are so sorry to hear of John’s passing. I worked at Lunenburg Foundry for a number of years where John was highly regarded and respected both for his friendly personality and for his enormous skill as a craftsman. With John and Creighton and the other foundry men the Moulding Room ran like a well oiled machine. It was a pleasure to watch them work and produce such high quality castings. John will be missed and thought of often. Our thoughts and prayers will be with you all during the days and months ahead.

Heartfelt condolences for each and every one of you in the loss of a very good man. John not only was your father, your loss will be missed by all who had any contact with him. His smile being infectious to all who encountered him. Watching him work so hard at the Foundry with his son Cody by his side, was a real pleasure. Watching the craftmanship of making anything from metal was simply beautiful. Watching pour offs with all the guys at the Foundry, was a real treasure.
God Bless all of you our thoughts and prayers are with you all evermore. May you find peace in knowing your father is thankfully no longer suffering. A good buddy of my husband’s Philip an awe-inspiring co-worker, studious worker amazing father and grandfather, John our friend you are deeply missed.

Condolence from Roland Walfield on March 2nd, 2017 8:50 pm

I worked with John for 10 years at ” the foundry ” . I remember him always with a smile on his face , ready to crack a joke and as a hard worker . I enjoyed yarning with him about hunting , fishing and three wheelers . I remember fondly
of a hunting trip we made to East Dalhousie with a co worker and shooting clays with him back the Mines Rd. in Camperdown. There are too many good memories to mention them all.
I am so sorry and sad to hear of John’s passing .

With deepest sympathy to his family,
Roland “Rollie” Walfield
