  • JP taught a lot of us young bucks about the milk business and more so, about a good work ethic and carrying yourself well. And of course the best memories of bonfires and good cheer at Husavik. Those were the days …. Rest well Johnny. - Posted by: Larry Weremiuk (Friend) on: Jun 08, 2023

  • Extending my deepest sympathy to Mike, Trish and family. I am very sorry for the sudden loss of your brother, Mike. My heart goes out to you and Trish at this very difficult time. It is never easy to lose a loved one and it is so much harder when it is unexpected. Thinking of you. - Posted by: Cathy Taylor (Friend of John's brother) on: Jun 04, 2023

  • You would have a hard time finding another person whose entrance into a room changed the complete vibes like John could. His belly laugh, his stories/true or not, the song in his voice. John was a special person. We were honoured to have enjoyed many family gatherings when John was there he was so dynamic. Our condolences to Trish and Micheal and family, we send a message of love from our family to yours. Aunty Joyce and Your Most Favorite Uncle Don - Posted by: don and Joyce Sobering (friend) on: Jun 03, 2023

  • Uncle John was my dad’s best friend. He and Auntie Mel have been part of my sister’s and my life since we were born. He was one of the funniest, most caring people I have ever met. Visits to their house was always a highlight, as were shared vacations. Dad and Uncle John would phone each other every Sunday morning to solve the world’s problems, a tradition I tried to keep up at least once a month after dad passed away. I will miss his laugh, his honesty, and everything about him. He will be missed. Condolences from myself, my mother Diane and my sister Jennifer. - Posted by: Kevin Peden (Family friend) on: Jun 03, 2023

  • So sorry to read of John's passing ... heartfelt condolences to his family and friends ... Barbara and I were classmates at Aberdeen Jr. High School and later at Tec Voc ... very much enjoyed seeing him again at the Tec Voc 60th celebration in 2011 ...
