Deaths-John-KlassenJohn enjoyed curling, football and golf throughout his life. He spent much of his career in sales and enjoyed interacting with others through stories. In his later years, John visited those who were ill or shut-in. His Lord and his family were the centre of his life. John was diagnosed with progressive supranuclear palsy in 2013. Despite illness, he continued to bless others with his sense of humour, even in the palliative care ward.
