John held many positions during his lifetime. He was a member of Union 115 Operating Engineers, had worked at Cominco, was a guard on the Trail Bridge, worked on the Robson Ferry, drove a Zamboni and was mostly known for his years of service as a rakerman in the paving industry.
While he was young he enjoyed playing ball and had a love for fishing his whole life. In his mid years, he was best known for knocking over the Christmas tree. And what about those chaotic family spaghetti dinners every Sunday for years!!!
He was a collector of clocks and bells. His favourite pastimes included garage sales, gardening, sleeping, joking and eating. And he loved his Vancouver Canucks.
He will be dearly missed.
