John you are a true love of Lorna.Your enthusiasm for life and your enjoyment for what was out there matched each others' hearts-though you skied faster and your golf handicap was out of her reach your strengths captivated her. John may you rest in the peace of all that you gave to others with your profession and within your family.My heartfelt thoughts to you my dear friend Lorna. fondly Karen from Markdale, the town John would bellow with laughter to say "oh ya, all roads lead to Markdale and it's 20 minutes from everywhere".

With sadness I say goodbye to a man I came to know through Lorna. John was always kind to my parents, (Aunt Alice and Uncle Bob), enthusiastically listening to their stories. He showed his warm appreciation of extended family by showing up at my daughter's house, new microwave in hand, to welcome her to her new home in Guelph. His kindness and thoughtfulness will always be cherished.

John could not have had a more loving or thoughtful caregiver in these last few months. I hope that you find solace in knowing that you brought him comfort when he needed it most.

It was with great sadness that I learned of John's passing. I would like to express my condolences to John's family and friends. When I first met John he impressed me as a very kind, sincere and unpretentious person with a wonderful sence of humor. Over the next 40 plus years when we met at dental meetings, class reunions or ski days in Collingwood that impression never changed. I know that all of our classmates were very fond of John and we will sadlly miss him whenever occaisions bring us together. Unfortunately I am not able to attend the services for John but my thoughts will be with his family and friends and the fond memories I have of John.
