This is evident in the family he has left behind. While I am saddened by his passing, I’m confident you have many good memories that will carry you through this difficult time. I will always remember him for his cheerful outlook and a smile on his face.

    We will miss John – we became friends with him through the Alberta Gold Prospectors Association many years ago. He shared so many amazing gold stories and so much wisdom with us over the years! We regret that we were out of the country and not able to make it to his service in July. Please accept out sincere condolences. Sincerely, Troy & Lesli and family
