John is lovingly remembered as a devoted husband for almost 60 years to Lois, who passed away last year; a loving father to sons Brian (Laurie), Kelvin (Toshi), Murray (Shannon), daughters Tracy Scott (Tom) and Dawn Brummitt (Gordon); a proud grandfather to Marie, Lauren, Elyse, Sarah, Derrick, Curtis, Clea & Atticus.

John was born & raised in Blumenhof, Saskatchewan, and came west to Vancouver as a young man. After working a few jobs he settled into a position at B.C. Crossarms; which eventually became Delta Cedar Products. John became a partner in the sawmill and forged a successful company and cherished career. Following retirement in 1991 he & Lois settled into a new home at Cultus Lake and became immersed in the community. John enjoyed golf, curling, sailing & card games over many years with family & friends. His extensive travels included annual snowbird trips to the south with Lois, as well as visits to many other international countries. A Celebration of Life for John will be held in the spring, where his family looks forward to sharing memories with extended family & friends.
