John had a rewarding career of 35 years, with School District #9, as a teacher and principal, in the Castlegar and surrounding areas.
He spoke often of the many joys and challenges he had while he worked as an educator.
In retirement years, John, enjoyed many pass times, including hanging out at the Castlegar Bookstore and Chances Casino, where “he was always going to win the big one!” John did win the big one, in life!
He touched many peoples’ lives, and he will be remembered for his quick sense of humor and his infectious laugh.
Rest in Peace John, we will forever remember you and keep you close in our hearts.
