Chris and family, Our thoughts are with you at this time and always. John made such an impact on us in the time we knew him. He was such a 'real' individual who had such wisdom and humour to add to life. We will miss the energy he brought to this world.
Love and hugs, Lori Denny and Owen

I recently thought of some of CSAO's retirees and John had come to mind. He was a good man who loved his family. My sincere condolences.
