John showed his keen interest in people by keeping in touch through phone calls and internet messages.

He was a good man, who always tried to do his best. Cremation has taken place and due to the current COVID situation a private family interment service will be held at Resurrection Cemetery.

  1. Hello Lizzie, Jim and Bob. Rarely do I look at obituaries in the Sarnia Observer. Obviously I did this morning and saw John's death. I am sorry. John had some challenging struggles and he dealt with them well. Lizzie I lost your e-address years ago when I dropped my computer and lost everything. I'd love to hear from you. I hope you are all well. My thoughts are with you.
