    My sincere condolences to John’s Wife and family. I fondly recall the times when John and I were both students at Western Canada High; the bowling team, school dances and great friendships, especially my close friendship with John’s sister Thelma Benny. I was so sad to read of her passing and regret having lost touch when I moved to Vancouver so many years ago.
