    Heaven has gained a very large angel. I have some very fond memories of Uncle John, he truly was a gentle giant with a great sense of humour. The times we spent at the farm and especially at the famous “Chicken Rodeo” are memories to be treasured forever! We wish we could have made it there today but unfortunately we could not. Love and hugs!

    Nancy and I were deeply saddened to hear about John. I always looked forward to my visits with him, and of course you, Mary, at the farm. We always had such great talks and discussions. John had a heart to match his stature. Although he is gone, he’ll be cherished in our memories forever.

  6. I remember him from when I worked at the bank in Crossfield. Always a smile, time for a chat, interested in how you were. A huge smile and a warm heart. My deepest condolences to Mary.
