Condolence from Muriel Cairns on July 5th, 2020 9:16 am

Bonnie and family..While it has been years since we were together (at Linton School) , your brother Allan told me about your husband’s death and I want to send condolences to you . The Mactaggarts are actually related to the Cairns so there is a distant connection . It is hard to lose someone who has been a big part of your life but I hope all the memories of your times together will help the smiles through the tears…all the best to you . Muriel (Goltz) Cairns

To Bonnie, Laurie and Dan, and Heather, I have taught with Bonnie for several years and we are sorry to hear about the loss of John. Although I have never met John, he sounds like a brilliant guy I would have liked to have met. The Mactaggarts are one of the most prominent families in the Nobleton area. Our thoughts are with you.

Condolence from bob early on July 5th, 2020 11:19 am

To John’s extended family; Sorry to hear of his passing. Can’t believe it. I would meet up with John at one of his many sites on delivery, we got along great, and he liked how I looked after his delivery requests. He was always full of questions. Is it tea time yet John ? It is time to rest. Bob Early.

Condolence from Klaus Kubetz & Marianne Kostic on July 5th, 2020 3:49 pm

We are saddened of John’s sudden departure. We will miss his sense of humour and his great”know-how” in marketing. His unique approach and positive thinking – all challenges in today’s work environment – will be in our memory for ever!

Our condolences to John’s Family. John was a fixture in our home. Walking in asking ” coffee on?” in the mornings. Throwing a bag of peas at us in the spring with a promise to return for a snack in June. John was a wonderful mentor and friend. We will miss him greatly. Neil, Karen, Joshua, and Aleisha Richards.

Condolence from Lynn Sirove on July 7th, 2020 8:01 pm

I worked with John for many decades in Toronto and Midland. One could never keep up his pace for life and business. He knew his business inherently and had a guide to success which he demonstrated over many years. His zest for the good life may have contributed to his current demise; but I can assure you that John would not have done it any other way.
Our world just became a little smaller; We will all miss John!

Condolence from Jean Claude Poree on July 9th, 2020 7:05 am

Very sorry to hear of John’s passing; He was my boss for many years and we visited customers together in France/Europe.
John had a great company vision ,was at the top in the business negotiations and I appreciated his sense of humor.
My condolences to the family

I am very sorry to hear of John’s passing. I learned a lot from John, an awful lot. He was very demanding, but he gave you everything you needed to meet those demands. I have many pleasant memories of my time with John that put a smile on my face.

‘Ted Milner, 102, Ted 102’.

Condolence from PHILIPPE BARDELLE on August 5th, 2020 10:12 am

‘Dr John’ and I first meet in Ottawa; This is winter 1994-1995, John has a vision for ELCAN. John is a quick decision-maker, our collaboration starts shortly thereafter.
I learnt a lot under John’s leadership during our 12-year collaboration and success story.
In many ways John has influenced my life; his mentoring initially has survived until today.

We resume our close relationship after a while, as I attend John’s retirement party at ‘the farm’.
Later, as he kept travelling the world, John would seldom miss the opportunity to stop in Paris/France to visit us.
My kids have grown up yet they do recall “Dr John” and his fancy Christmas ties and superb Hawaiian shirts (not worn simultaneously though !)

So is John; A unique, smart, sensitive, good-hearted being. John is very dear to my heart, he will not be forgotten.

From us all : Our thoughts to Bonnie whom we had met on a few occasions, as well as to all of John’s close.

Philippe (Bardelle)
Wife Natalie, children Oriane, Délia & Amaury
