    I only now saw John’s obituary. I knew John as a result of his collaboration with me and my colleagues at the University of Calgary. John always was a wonderful professional and a gentleman. My sincere condolences to John’s family at the passing of their loving husband and father. He was a credit to his profession, his family, and our community.

    Sincerely,
    Charlie Webber
