So sorry to hear of your loss. John and I go way back to our high school days and somehow agreed that we were distant cousins given our respective family name "Chenier". I think of him and our many respective close high school friends often! He will be missed in our hearts and minds!

My most sincere condolences!

I remember John from our times in my teen-age years, in the Mountain Park section of Hull. He was fun to be with, charismatic and hung out with my boy friend at the time. His girlfriend was pretty cool and gorgeous...and to this day we still keep in touch. It was a great time to be in the 60's!
My sympathy to John's family....70.... way too young!

I was so sad to hear of John's passing. I worked with him at Sykes. He woulds always stop to talk to me and we are not suppose to chat on the floor. He was a rebel, and said..."What are they gonna do , fire me" I dare them, haha. He had a wonderful smile and a fabulous wit. We will miss him so much. He was loved by all at work. I will miss my hello man !!!
