John was a wonderful husband and father who loved to teach his children to work with their hands and do things for themselves. He loved racing in everything he did whether it was berry picking , fishing , hunting snowmobiling or boating, He was an inventive man who could build anything from pontoon boats to long liners, houses to cabins , and picture frames to rocking chairs.
Dad fished for many years which was intercepted by a career with Newfoundland Hydro that he truly enjoyed.
John had two great loves in his life; one was his precious Lord and Saviour and the other was his wife.
