He leaves behind a legacy of quality workmanship and hand built homes across the west side of Vancouver. After John retired, he split his time between his family in Qualicum and his daughters, family and friends in Vancouver. John enjoyed watching football, dinners out with his family and friends, gardening, walking, and taking cruises. Though he experienced some health struggles, John was always smiling and positive. He was a kind, gentle, humble family man and his loss is deeply felt by all who had the pleasure to know him.
