He is deeply mourned by his loving wife of 43 years Deborah, son John and daughters Michelle and Joanne, son-in-law Daniel, daughter-in-law Allison, and son-in-law Eric. John was tremendously proud of his grandchildren and he will be deeply missed by Michael, Emily, Isabelle, Connor, Mathieu, Sara and Dylan. John is survived by his brothers Gerald, Paul, Eddie, Barrie, Sean and his sisters Cavell, Valerie, Debbie, Tina, Marlene, Roxanne and Beverly and their spouses. John will be lovingly remembered by his brother-in-laws Don, Brian, Edward and sister-in-laws Lillian, Geraldine, and Sandra and their spouses; as well as numerous nephews, nieces, cousins, and dear friends. Originally from Bell Island, Newfoundland, John is predeceased by his parents Edward and Louise, and his brother George. John loved a good laugh, a bottle of beer and a game of cards. Family and friends were always stopping by for a visit and could often times find him organizing his shed or sitting on the couch watching political debates on television. Everyone who knew John has a story of his humour, kindness and loving nature. These memories will be cherished.
