John was born in Montreal on August 12, 1935 the son of
Patrick and Mabel (Mayall)
John’s life began in Montreal; he then moved to New Brunswick
where his life was changed forever. He found his Lord and
Saviour and also met his wife, Betty. Betty was a
christian who had a way of not judging people; she and John had a very
special relationship. They worked together at Camp L’Allee
Verte which was a christian camp for young people. John
would want everyone to know, if the Lord could help him, he can help
anyone. His testimony was from the heart as he touched many
people’s lives when he shared his life’s story. He was an
active member and Deacon of the Lower Cape Baptist Church.
He loved to sing and belonged to the Silver Chords and the Men’s
Choir. He was committed to helping the Elizabeth
Fry Society and volunteered countless hours at the Karing
Kitchen. John and Betty were avid bowlers and
belonged to a bowling league for many years. John was also a
member of the Hillsborough Seniors Club. He was a true
Montreal Canadiens fan. He loved to laugh and tease and have
fun; he was always carrying on with
everyone. John felt blessed to have been taken in,
not only by Betty but by all her family and extended family.
He thanked God everyday for the way his life was turned
around. His message would be clear today, life is not always
easy but when you turn to the Lord, life can be great.
Prayer changes things- Believe.
