  1. Michelle Bainbridge (Villemaire) :

    My deepest sympathy goes to the family. We knew John through Kevin D’Costa and through my brother, Roger, who worked with John years ago. Unfortunately, I lost my brother, Roger, to suicide 12 years ago and at that time, John was saddened. We had a great heart to heart with John at the time. No words can soften the blow for the survivors of suicide but just know keep the good memories close to your heart always – that will get you through the tough roads ahead. Again, my deepest sympathy for his family.

    My sympathy, prayers and love are with the family and friends of John. I know not what it is to have a brother but the loss of one must leave the rest of you with a vacant spot in your lives and hearts. God’s blessings and love to you all.

    To the Tavares family:
    I was greatly saddened when I received word that John had passed away. We had a great many talks when John worked for me. Both about work and life. I just feel great sorrow that John didn’t feel he could come and talk to me. Our last conversation was a couple of weeks ago and it was about John possibly coming back to work for me. I wish he had taken me up on the offer. Donna and I would like to offer our sincerest condolences to your family. John will be missed.
