Marcella, Richard and Rebecca, we are so sorry for your loss. We have been John and Marcella’s immediate neighbor down the street for 32 years and will miss John a lot! I have had many many conversations with this very accomplished man over the years! The most recent one, John had a good chuckle only a few weeks ago when we met at the end of his driveway, me with my four wheeler and he on his scooter. I challenged him to a race and he graciously declined with a huge smile!! Marcella, we are thinking about you during this very difficult time!
Shirley & Paul Shot
Marcella, Richard, Rebecca and families: It is with great sorrow that I learn of John’s passing. I know that no mere words can express the heart felt sorrow that you now feel, but maybe knowing that others share your pain with help ease yours. John will always be remember by those that knew him as an honest, fun loving, gentle man and a true friend. He helped so many people create happy memories during the square dancing years. His knowledge and patients was second to none. I pray now that he is dwelling in the house of our Lord and looking down on you and his friends.
So saddened to read of John’s passing in the CH this am.

Dear Marcella and family,
We were so sad to hear about John. We got to know him in the past 25 years of square dancing. In the last few years he put us through our paces in his garage, never missing a beat. We had so many laughs and when we made mistakes, he also took the blame, and it was always our fault. What good memories.
I’m so sorry to read of your Dad’s passing. He was blessed with a long life and a loving family. May God comfort and keep you and your family in this time of sorrow.
Sorry to hear about your Dad..give my condolences to your Mom and the rest of the family ..take care..Lynn

Dear Marcella and family , So sorry for your loss but so happy for all the love of 67 years together with John. I am thankful for having had the privilege of learning line dancing at the Milton school . I still have the papers from the classes. My friend and I used to do the ten step at the dances in the late 80’s. So much fun and you were so magical square dancing together at Milton as one class you gave an amazing performance . Hold onto the memories of such a meek and gentle soul. Prayers of comfort and may God bless you and yours at this difficult time ,Linda Williams

Hello Becky and family. Just arrived home from a week in USA and learned of your Dad’s passing. During the long drive I was telling Cassie and Maggie about the Christmas your Dad made the trick present and how mad Cassie got when we were all laughing and she got the scare when the box exploded. That is how I remember him laughing and enjoying the look of sheer shock on my face.
No words sound very wise at this time, I hope you will be comforted by knowing friends care. All our love Anita
Richard we are so sorry to hear about your Dad ,I am sure you have fond memories With deep sympathy Gary and Barb Goulden..
I just realized that John passed away. The short time that I worked for him was a real pleasure. Your life will be enriched with the many years of marriage that you had with him. My deepest sympathies goes out to you.
Penny and Warren Fisher
So sorry to hear that John passed away! We both were very fond of John and were so glad to see him in October before coming home. We enjoyed our visit with you both so much! It was always a highlight of our trip home to come and see you both! We will miss him greatly! Our deepest sympathy to you, Marcella, and all the family! We know that John was much loved by all of you!
I was so sorry to hear of John’s passing. He was a fine man… quiet and kind. My condolences to Richard and Becky.
John was a man of great integrity and character. I remember as a neighbour his generosity and help when as a child his kind demeanour was appreciated.
I will always remember this man and know he has walked many miles in great shoes….
