You were so full of life and compassion for everything you did. I remember how excited you were giving bibles away in Cuba!!!
You also had such a passion for singing. Perhaps you can do a duet in heaven with your dear friend Sahir.

God rest your soul. Godspeed John.


This was quite a shock and I have been praying for you since I received the news. You remain in my prayers. God bless you.

Dear Ann,
I have heard the sad news (Nicole Bélecque) of John’s passing away.
Even though time shall heal the hurt it is not easy to let a companion of so many years go.
We shall remember John’s funny jokes more over his generosity and he was always ready to help the other.
A flash is coming to my mind: he was always looking for the right page at choir...!
I wish you all the strength and blessing.
My sincere condolences,
Anne Lefier

So sad to hear of John’s passing. He was a happy, outgoing, generous man who truly brightened the world wherever he went. John was always eager to lend his great baritone voice to our many musical projects over the years and could be counted on to lighten rehearsals with his infectious love of life and unfailing good humour. We will all miss him.
Ann, our deepest condolences to you and your family.

I have such fond memories of cousin John -- full of mischief, unable to resist a corny joke, deeply committed to his family.
To Ann and family, please accept my condolences.

I am very sorry to hear of your loss and please accept my heartfelt condolences. I worked with john for many years and he was always a very kind and gentle soul. His delight in life and his family and that twinkle in his eye were never absent.

I was 14 or 15 when I first met John. Jane and I had slept at Ann’s apartment on Gloucester Street and we met John for breakfast on a Sunday morning then went for a walk on the Byward market. My first impression was he was that he was a tall guy with big hair and a deep voice. The first thing he asked me was what my favorite band was. I was embarrassed because I didn’t know much about music so I said Chris de Burgh because Ann had one of his albums. He approved. To Ann, I offer my deepest sympathies, I love you like a sister Annie.

Danielle, Chantale and Sophie. I am the youngest of a family of three daughters. I remember when I lost my dad 25 years ago. That was without a doubt, the saddest day of my life. Hugs to you ladies.

My husband Patrick also sends his condolences to the family.

I will miss how he used to introduce me to people as his baby sister.
