Relation: friend

An infectous smile,a willingness to tackle any kind of a job, a great businessman and a pleasant neighbour to talk to- those are just some of the things that John was to many of us who lived in the Willowbrook area- to Susan and Margit or deepest sympathy- Even though I now live over 7000 km away in Nova Scotia, the Laposa family will be fondly remembered- Jim and Barb MacNaughton , Margaree Centre, NS, formerly from Oliver BC
