A fine fellow who will be missed. Although we lost contact ever since he left the alpaca farm , we still remember many conversations of our Maple Leafs and Church matters from our times together at St Paul's here in Warkworth. We still have a prized picture of our daughter with the infamous alpaca named Violet when she helped at the Rural Ramble at the farm many years ago. We want to send our condolences to all of John's family, and know that our thoughts and prayers are with all of you.
