Condolence from Harry Brightwell on July 3rd, 2012 10:00 PM

I was a practicing veterinarian in Stratford from 1958 to 84. I have many fond memories of John – but I am sure we called him Jack. Over the years with his graduation year being in synch with mine but 15 years earlier, we would meet at Class anniversary celebrations.
I had great respect for his professional ability and his humour.
I will contribute to a Community Foundation Endowment in his memory.
He is a big part of of my practice memory.

May all those good memories bring smiles for years to come.

Condolence from Kim (Helm), Krista (Evely) and Shirley Snell on July 4th, 2012 12:00 AM

Dear Janet, Jane, Tyler, Kate and families,
We were sorry to read of John&&single&&s passing in the London Free Press. Krista and I both worked for him and Marian cleaning and doing odd jobs around the house when we were teenagers. He was great to work for. I still remember the time he asked me to thin the carrots in the garden and I went a little bit too far. He didn&&single&&t get mad though. He just laughed it off. When Dennis and I got married he let us use his old cars to ride in from the church to the Van Egmond House for pictures. If I remember correctly he also let me borrow his car to try for my license up in Clinton. He and Dad were in the Lion&&single&&s Club together. Dad thought a lot of John. These are the things I remember. Hope they help.

Condolence from Paul and Joan Spittal on July 4th, 2012 6:00 PM

WE just got back from Ottawa and heard about John. I remember as a kid having a very sick dog and he came at 4:00 in the morning to help. He was always a lot of fun and and will be missed by all. Our prayers are with all the family.

Condolence from Ben & Arlene van den Akker on July 7th, 2012 11:00 PM
