    I grew up with John and was very close to him and his family for most of my childhood years. I lost touch with him after I got married and only saw him occasionally. However, he will always hold a special place in my heart and I will never forget all the experiences we shared. Rest well my dear cousin until we meet again. Carlo Pacentrilli and Family

    To John’s Family
    I and my family share in your loss . Many people where touched by Johnny’s music . I’ll miss his monthly visits to the store , where we would have lunch, talk Flames hockey, old times, and play Accordion together. It’s hard to believe how fast time has passed since we first met in Bridgeland School at a talent contest in the 60’s . Johnny was my friend and I will miss him !!
    Jim Klippert and family

    So sorry to hear of John’s passing. I will always remember him during our school days and the family gatherings on Sunday nights. Always the smartest kid in school with a wicked sense of humour. He will be in my thoughts and prayers.
