John was born in Hamilton and completed post-graduate studies at McMaster and Queen's Universities. He served with the Royal Canadian Engineers 1940 - 45 in Canada, Great Britain and Europe following which he was employed in business and industrial accounting in Hamilton.

He enjoyed travel with good friends and life with family at the cottage. He was also an enthusiastic gardener, and spent countless hours beautifying the Vineland Station home he shared with Dorothy. John's last years were spent at the Vineland United Mennonite Home where he received the best of care. He was eventually joined there by Dorothy and until she passed away in April 2005 she was never far from his side. John loved life and had many friends, but his struggle was long.
