He also leaves behind his two precious grandchildren Aaron and Emma Johnson, Ottawa, his brother Robert (Vina) Johnson, Coxheath, sisters Margie (David) Fowler, Lower Sackville, NS, and Florence Heather (Carl) Jardine, Ontario, also by numerous nieces and nephews who loved him very dearly.

As per John’s wishes, there will be no visitation or memorial service. Cremation has taken place and a private family gathering will be held at a later date. Arrangements have been entrusted to the W.J. Dooley Funeral Home, 107 Pleasant Street, North Sydney. Online condolences may be sent to the family at www.wjdooley.com.

Did you ever know that you’re my hero,

And everything I would like to be,

I can fly higher than an eagle,

For you are the wind beneath my wings.
