John was an active member of the Turin and surrounding Orford Community, and was often found at a rink or a diamond anywhere around Ontario supporting friends and family. John “Whipper” McFeggan was a member of the Bothwell Slo Boys hockey team and wore the number 35 for the Die-Hards baseball team for many years. He was involved with both local and international plowing matches. John worked for Bell Canada, Thamesville and Bothwell Hydro and was a lifelong farmer.
