Upon retirement, John and Helen moved to Abbotsford. As a family provider, John was very committed to his wife and children, providing them with a loving and secure home. He was also committed to helping those around him and was a witness to the Lord in all areas of life. During his life he joyfully carried on the gift of visitation, first as a youth, conducting Union Gospel Street Meetings, and later doing home and hospital visitations. John’s hobbies included photography, camping, and reading his Bible. He and Helen travelled throughout Canada, Europe, Australia, and the southern U.S.A.
