I am saddened to read of John’s passing away in the Swan River Star and Times. I have good memories of the last time I saw him when I was home visiting my Mom in Swan River after my Dad (his uncle) had passed away. He also was home visiting family and he dropped in to see my Mom. We spent a lovely day looking at old family photos and had lunch together. He was there with his camera taking pictures. I also have even older memories of him being at our Bowsman farm visiting and hanging out with my brothers when we were growing up. He was always so friendly, warm and kind.


So sorry to hear of your loss. I dealt with John many time when I lived in Ft McMurray. Great individual.

Debbie and Ken Grey

John was a great neighbor, always ready to lend a hand, offer a cold beer or talk politics. We are so sorry for your loss Amanda.

He may have been 72 but there was that little boy inside that never got over his loss of his Mom at 11. I like to think he is getting those momma hugs he misses for so many years. Love ya Uncle – more like my big brother. I shall miss you until we meet again.

Good memories are on our wedding
