It is hard to imagine a time in life without someone who has been part of your life for all of it. John and Judy have been friends with my parents forever it seems. I remember being so excited as a child knowing we were going to the Hydrochuk's on a Saturday evening or they were coming to our house. Usually turned into a sleepover with Cheryl for me! We always had so much fun! There are times in life where we go months or even years without seeing each other but when we do see each other, nothing has changed. Old dear friends are just old dear friends. The Hydrochuk clan will always be forever friends to me! I will miss seeing John! He was a great man! My condolences to the whole family for their loss! - Posted by: Tracy Cosser (Forever Friends) on: Feb 23, 2021

I will always hold dear and never forget the memories and wisdom John has left with me. He was one of the hardest working men I’ve met with a heart of gold, John was an amazing boss who taught me a lot of life skills and gave me a career with fox insulation. John always had the answer to any problem, he would be there to help anyone he knew anytime to help fix something and definitely give advice. You will be deeply missed John (boss).

Growing up and spending countless hours with the Hydrochuk family made for many amazing memories. John abd Judy were always so welcoming, their home constantly filled to the brim with their kid's friends. I remember John to be a great father to his kids and always so kind to all of us! Sincere condolences to the Hydrochuk family. - Posted by: Laurie Borle (Friend ) on: Feb 20, 2021
