  7. Aunt June. I have very fond memories of Uncle John and our many fishing adventures. Broken down snowmobiles, falling through ice and meeting up with bears. A tireless worker and as hard as steel.
    A true role model. He will forever live in our lives and be missed.

    Love
    Kranjec Family

    Dear Junie; Our heartfelt condolences on the passing of your beloved John. I have so many wonderful camping and fishing memories with yourself and John over the years. David, Zoe and Andrew were fortunate as well to have had a similar experience. I know you will miss Johnnie deeply, but take comfort in that he is at peace and no longer suffering with his many ongoing ailments. He will be missed.

    Love The Walkers; Cheryl, Vince, David, Zoe and Andrew.
