  • Rest In Peace John. - Posted by: Maurice Catellier (Cousin) on: Jan 21, 2023

  • Jean was a good neighbour and friend to my parents Ike and Jessie Feenstra in Dufrost for many years. I remember the Wednesday morning coffee around the kitchen table at my parents when Jean would bring the doughnuts! He became our good friend as well, often calling Alex with a window job lead and after my parents were gone stopping by our lot in St. Malo just to say hello. Jean's outgoing personality definitely left a big impression on many lives. Our condolences to the family, Betty and Alex Andrushko - Posted by: Alex and Betty Andrushko (friend) on: Dec 28, 2021

  • To my dear relatives, cousins, Marcien let me know about Jean's passing yesterday. It is always a bit jarring to receive news of a close relative passing. I am sorry this passing is so close to Christmas for all of you especially Susan and her family as well as the late Tracy's family. My condolences to all of you and may his beautiful full life be remembered with joy and peace. Lovingly Carmen - Posted by: Carmen Catellier, snjm (cousin) on: Dec 21, 2021
