From Joanne Crombie:

Dear Nancy and Family. I found out about the heartbreaking news of John’s passing.  He seemed like the kind of man who would live forever.  He was my friend and mentor and I hope I was the same for him.  He was such an amazing soldier, cook and most of all human being.  I know from all the years we worked together that above all else his family was most important to him.  I’m so glad I took the time to have a coffee with him last time I was in town.  I will be thinking and praying for you and your family during this difficult time.
