TO EILEEN AND CHILDREN AND FAMILY OF JOHN,
This message expresses our sympathy and condolences for the sad passing of John.
As you know, we have known John for many many years. We first met him as an Elk's Club member, then as a good friend and now very close neighbour. We will miss him very much. When he passed by our house, he was always friendly, never without a cheery smile and -without fail- had something pleasant to say every time we see him - exceptionally good natured. When we told John that Cedar Cottage Neighbourhood House needed a volunteer cook to lead the youth for a cooking activity, he happily accepted the job. He was outgoing, kind hearted & helpful and we, very sadly, will miss his warmth and special presence.
WITH OUR SINCERE CONDOLENCES,
FROM GERRY AND VERNA MAR AND FAMILY,

My biggest condolences to the Hoy Family. John touched many lives - including mine, when I worked as a volunteer for . He was so well-natured and whenever asked to do the exercise session, he will do it with gusto! his biggest asset was his sense of humour, we shared a laugh or two many times. John taught me the importance of keeping yourself in the present- he taught me that when you are older, the present is what you must value the most. thanks John! rest in peace and keep your smile wherever you are!
