John always worked hard to support his family and passed on to them his strong work ethics. He enjoyed his employment at Maple Leaf Dairy, Valewood and being the owner operator of the Golden Eagle gas station, Queen Street Taxi and Miller’s Custom Cabinets in Renfrew. He was an excellent cabinet maker who built many beautiful pieces of furniture. John enjoyed the simple things in life like playing cards with his wife and family, hunting and family fishing trips. He especially enjoyed the annual fishing tournament where he took great pride in his frequent trophy winnings. He will be deeply missed.
