Have good memories of John, having travelled several times with him on business. We always had a few laughs and made the best of every situation. Respected, he will be missed. Our very best wishes and condolences to Joan and Roberta.

We met Joan and John during the summer of 2013 when we moved in to our new home on Calder Rd., they are both the kindest and wittiest neighbors anyone can ask for. Both are quite avid readers and are well versed in world travels and affairs. At times Joan would ask for some help with little household handyman chores and once completed I usually took some time to sit and enjoy a nice cold beer and chat about just about everything, from the Calder neighborhood to the places they’ve seen and traveled to. We have since moved from Calder and we do live close by however I still consider that neighborhood my home, and Joan & John made it feel that way.
