John enjoyed spending his leisure time fishing or at the Legion, the Elks and the Welcome Inn.

A funeral service was held on Friday December 30 at 2:00 p.m. in the Nunes-Pottinger Funeral Chapel, with the Rev. Ray Turner, officiating. Burial in the Oliver Municipal Cemetery followed.

From: Diane Young
Relation: I worked for John for several years

A kind and thoughtful man. I remember one Christmas, he had me prepare several food hampers from the vast array of product. He then took them to town to drop off to families he knew who were struggling. I always remembered that. He had a temper, but he was a marshmellow inside. I’ll miss him, he was like my other dad. Rest in peace John.
