The son of a minister John moved from one small town to another throughout South Western Ontario. John spoke fondly of his summers spent at Lake Baptiste as a councilor at Camp Panacka. His love for the outdoors remained, his favourite place included sun, a chair and his headphones. After high school John attended the Normal School in Stratford where he earned his teaching certificate and met Joan. The two began teaching in the London area. In 1978 John obtained his Masters of Education from the University of Western Ontario. John was a proud and loyal Educator with the London Board for 35 years.

John touched the lives of many staff and students. After retiring John began his second career as a court clerk where he joined his other principal friends. He found this so interesting and always had a chuckle when former pupils crossed his desk as having a ” brush with the law”. Whether it was camping at Lakewood trailer estates for 13 summers, soaking up the splendor at the cottage in Kettle point or in his later years enjoying Florida with his wife Barb, John made connections with others and was always well respected and admired. Thank you Dad for being a wonderful role model and friend. Be free to wander.
