    I was sorry to hear of John’s passing. I was his neighbour for the last couple of years, and thoroughly our conversations. He was always upbeat, and had a good outlook on life. He enjoyed his morning walks, and babying his BMW. He will be remembered fondly. My condolences to his family.

  • Susan Volkmann says:

    I am saddened hear of the news of John’s passing. I will always remember him as a compassionate man, patient and engaging. He cared so much for his sister-in-law Sophie, who was so fond of him, and was so grateful for his attentive efforts. I count myself fortunate to be among those who became acquainted with John. I send my sincere sympathies to those close who loved him and will be missing him so.
