He was an avid hockey player for half his life and was admired by his teammates and competitors for the way he played the game. His efforts were rewarded with his induction into the Newfoundland Amateur Hockey Hall of Fame in 1995. John and Jean traveled around the world but they really enjoyed their annual trip to Newfoundland each summer to visit with family and friends and enjoy the beautiful scenery and weather. John had a long list of lifetime friends and never forgot a name or a face of people he befriended. He was respected for being a true gentleman. He was a man of faith who believed in the goodness of people. The family wishes to extend its grateful appreciation for the staff of Hospice Eckstein Center and the home care staff for their exceptional care and support for John.
