We all love you Dad and we all miss you. I can see that playful half smile now as you looked up to see if we "got it".

Got it and will never forget it.

I only knew John for a few years, but it was enough time for him to leave an ever lasting impression!!!! He was SO very funny, caring, and sweet... He loved his family so much, and was so proud of all of you. He will be missed dearly...xoxo

Sir John Bealy was a dapper dresser (shoes always polished) who took enormous pride in his family and who enjoyed the simple things of life. He sang funny songs, told great jokes and his generosity knew no bounds. One of his signature remarks: "I'll pay for it." He was first-class from start to finish. DRINK BEER, JOHNNY!

Today marks a week since Dad passed on and it has been such a comfort to read everyone's words and memories here. Dad was never the talker in the family but he brought a stability that was unshakeable. And while we all remember him for his crazy sense of humour, his ridiculous jokes, his joie de vivre, he did have a serious side, an ability to take in all sides of a conversation, quietly. And to be changed by it, quietly. He didn't need to convince anyone to come to his way of thinking nor did he need acknowledgment when he embraced a new way. I miss you, Dad. Love always.

Many of my favourite childhood memories revolve around Uncle John and Aunt Rita, and it does seem right for them to be together again, even though the loss is so difficult for the ones left behind. We are keeping you all in our prayers.

I have so many fond memories of both Uncle John, and Auntie Rita.
It really is the end of an era. He was the last of his generation in the Bealy clan. How hard that must have been for him.
Though Uncle Johnny’s passing makes me very sad, in a way it is nice that he is finally back with Auntie Rita. I have a hard time to think of them as separate. When I think of one, I automatically think of the other.
I will always remember Uncle Johnny crawling around under Nanny’s hedge with me, playing Barbie and Mr. Jiggs. He was the best uncle any kid could hope to have. Always fun. Always smiling and laughing. Always teasing, and willing to be teased. And the best hugger when you fell off your bike and scraped your knee. Everything a little girl could want in an uncle.
I will miss him. I will even miss his silly joke about “the dog at the bus stop”.
I know how hard this must be for you. It is very hard to become an “ orphan “, no matter what age you are.
My thoughts are with you all.
I love you,
Bernice

John was a man who seemed to enjoy life in his own quiet way. Anna May and I always visited he and Rita on our semi-annual trips to Montreal, whether it was from Toronto or Vancouver or Calgary.
He will be missed.
