A diligent employee of 39 years at Bell Canada, John treasured time away at the family cottage on Muskoka’s Raven Lake. An enthusiastic if occasionally cantankerous golfer, John was also blessed with an encyclopedic memory for mostly tasteful jokes. He also used his legendary memory during his doggedly determined crossword solving. GO LEAFS GO (take that, Len)! Talented organ player and proud bearer of the Cunningham tartan, John was a devoted congregation and choir member at Knox Presbyterian of Waterdown since 1954.
The family’s sincere gratitude goes out to Doctor Randy Cross, John’s Doctor of the Soul and friend, Pastor George Robertson, and the deeply compassionate staff of Carpenter Hospice.
