Peacefully at home on Salt Spring Island, loved and supported by Dorothy and his close family, John passed away on May 11.

Born in England in 1933, and a BC resident since 1956, John was a Spitfire pilot in

Hong Kong, round-the-globe aviator with the RCAF, Trans Canada Airlines and Air Canada, and dedicated sailor and navigator.

But most of all, he was a matchless husband, father, grandfather, brother, uncle and friend.

For information on a celebration of

John’s life, please contact

In lieu of flowers, donations in John’s memory to 135 Squadron Sponsoring Committee,

Royal Canadian Air Cadets,

would be appreciated.

Address: PO Box 46896, Station D,

Vancouver, BC V6J 5M4.
