He was born in St. Boniface and attended school in North Kildonan, MB, following which he eventually moved to Vancouver where he met Carol at G.H. Wood & Co. where they were both employed. They were married October 11, 1969 in Vancouver. Following the birth of their oldest daughter, they moved to Carbon where they resided for the next 42 years. John worked for John Deere in Carbon, Drumheller and Trochu. He was the farmers favorite parts man as it seemed no computer was needed when he was behind the counter.

He leaves to mourn his wife of 47 years, son Steven and family (Aberdean, Sask.), daughter JoAnne (Three Hills) including three grandsons (Cole, Daniel and Kyan) and 1 granddaughter (Karma), sister Judy and family (Stratford, Ontario).

In lieu of flowers, donations may be made to the Carbon Fire Dept or the Kneehill Ambulance Service, in his memory. Sunset Funeral Service is looking after him and at his request, there will be no funeral service. A family/friend get together will be held at a future date.
