Saturday, May 25, 2019My wife, Nicky and I were blessed to have Poppy stay with us in Edmonton AB in 2013. Nicky was posted to 1 Hq and Sigs in CFB Edmonton while I was at 1 PPCLI. We had a blast of a night, and in the morning, Nicky organized and brought him through one of the best signal museum tours at her unit as well as tours through the signal lines. An unbelievable experience, I thought I’d share. He loved it beyond my expectations, and yes.... he put us young drinking bucks to shame the night before, a true Sargent Major. He was a best friend. A best grandfather. What a man. Miss you Poppy.

Thursday, May 16, 2019My heart goes out to all who loved this wonderful man. His very presence brightened any gathering and he was an amazing dancer. I was privileged to meet him over thirty years ago and if I were forced to describe him in one word, it would have to be Loving. He was a man of integrity and the world has been robbed of a beautiful spirit and to his family: words seem so inadequate to comfort you and all I have to offer you is this I lost my Mom two years ago and I can promise you the pain will ease as the good memories flow in.

Saturday, May 11, 2019To the greatest Uncle a little girl, or a big girl, could ever have. Everyone who knew him was a better person for having met him. His loving hugs said everything to me. I knew he loved me without condition or demands. His positive attitude toward life helped me in ways he never knew. I will miss his laughter, his big warm smile, his kind heart and his wit. My world is a smaller place without him, I love you Uncle John..
