John will be fondly remembered by Wyatt, Cole & Lindsey, his several  aunts, uncles, nieces, nephews, cousins , god children and friends.


John was a quiet and wise man known for his kindness, compassion and sense of humor. He volunteered for many years at Nepean Minor Hockey and Trend Arlington Community Center. He had a great passion for the outdoors, fishing, cottage life, travelling to Cuba and music.  He loved spending time with family and friends.  

John worked as a Welder, Computer Systems Technician (JDS Uniphase) and most recently Medical Gas Technician for 16 years at The Ottawa Hospital, where he retired two years ago at the age of 65.


When someone you love becomes a memory, the memory becomes a treasure.  John left this world a better place and will be deeply missed by many.

Our family would like to thank everyone for their kind words, support and condolences.
