John led a full, rich life. As the original manager of the Ontario Chicken Producers Marketing Board for 23 years, he was instrumental in leading this agricultural sector through positive development in Ontario and across the country. The first board chair of Tabor Manor in St. Catharines, Ont., John led with dedication and integrity for more than 25 years. John served as a leader on many boards and committees for Fairview MB Church and the Ontario, Canadian, and binational MB conferences. Family times included travelling, fishing, hunting, golf, and trips with his grandchildren to “Canadian Tire” (their code word for “Tim Hortons”). John leaves a legacy of service to God and his family, church, and community.
