Michelle and Kelly, I learned of "Uncle" Johnny's pasting by a cousin in Toronto who saw the obituary in the paper. I want to express my deepest condolences to you both. Your father was a very special man with the most incredible loving heart. I have many happy memories of our families together from my childhood. He will always be Uncle Johnny to me. God rest his soul and God Bless you and your family.

I would like to pass a few memories I have of John.
I moved to Brampton in 1973 and wanted to get involved in sports and I contacted the city regarding base ball, they sent me to a park and ask for two guys. I approached
one and said I'm John chapman and the city sent me to play ball.
The guy was John LONSDALE and the rest is history.

I also had the thrill of playing golf with John when he scored a hole-in one. It was a thrill and a half

John was an great guy and he will be missed 😥

We are so sorry to hear about John's passing. I remember John way back as being part of T.N.O.B. We did share some good times playing hockey and baseball together as well as several trips up to the hunt camp. I found John to be a very welcoming person, always with a smile.
While our paths haven't crossed too much lately, he will be missed by all those who knew John.

Sorry to hear about John and our condolences to the family. John and I played baseball against each other and also played together in an old timers league. Many great memories as John was also a neighbor for a few years, and one night after we had competed against each other, we both had our teams back to our homes, John lived across the road from us. John's party ended before ours and he and some others came over and joined our group. Gives you an indication of the friendship in the league and us. Sorry I won't be able to be there for a send off to a great friend and competitor.
All the best to the family.

We first met John back in the 1980s. Wayne had thé great fortune of playing hockey with John and his other buddies. We went to the TNOB family picnics where John would entertain all thé children by dressing up as a clown. Lots of love and laughter and hanging out in social events as well. John was always a kind and loving friend and we cherish our memories of those days. John Thank you for being a true friend. We love you and we honour you. Rest in Gods arms and enjoy your family who went to Jesus before you.
Wayne and Colleen Charlton.
