Warm, friendly, supportive, John's presence was a constant in my career at P.C. Through the mostly good times and the occasional bump on the road, he was there, and such a friend leaves an indelible mark. I never said 'Thank you' enough.
My deepest sympathy to the family

I remember John we’ll from St.Joseph Teachers College in Montreal.
Then our paths crossed again at Pierson Union in Kirkland and once more at Pierrefonds Comprehensive High School.
John was such a nice fellow and so
funny.
My sincere sympathies to the entire Zawada family.

Louise and family,
Our deepest sympathy to you in the loss of John. He was a great person and such a strong and determined sportsman. We enjoyed the times that the Glengarry runners spent with him and both of you. We're thinking of you and hope that all of your wonderful memories of him give you comfort and strength.
Sincerely, Bruce and Lynn MacGillivray

Louise and family please accept our condolences. Having lived across the street from you we have many memories of John. Two at the forefront is John running every day and his Mercedes. He was a great guy and will be missed by his family and friends.

You, me, his many relatives and friends, have lost a truly kind ,caring, intelligent and fun loving man who put his family first ;someone like John is rare to find these days.
