After studies at Trent University and the University of Toronto, he served the Presbyterian Church in congregations in Cochrane, Peterborough and Timmins, Ontario. John had many fond memories of these people and places.  John was a man with a strong faith in God and a genuine love for people.  A loving and gentle man, he found that caring for others was his greatest reward.  John had an inquiring mind and an adventurous spirit that led him to many interests such as:  Ham radio, beekeeping, army cadets, wilderness canoeing and hiking. With Carol, he travelled through the remotest parts of Northern Ontario, the Nahanni River in the Northwest Territories and Ellesmere Island in the Arctic.  After retirement, John returned to his home by the lake in Madoc and later to Hastings Manor.
