Condolence from Lois Wood on July 5th, 2020 8:05 pm

Lynda, Suzanne, and Family,

I am so sorry to hear the news about John. We knew him first from the dealership in King City, Kenn always thought he was the only honest car salesman in the region. Moving to Klienburg we were so happy to find John was our neighbor, he just about the best neighbor you could ask for: friendly and helpful, funny and kind. I was sorry to lose John as a neighbor, and I’m so much sorrier for the loss of his passing. Like many, I wish I could be there for you in person, but know that you are in my thoughts,

Lynda, Suzanne & Family,
We were so sorry to hear about John. You guys were such good neighbours to my Mom & Dad (Kenn & Lois) in Kleinburg. We always enjoyed our chats over the fence with John – had many laughs. He was such a great person and will be greatly missed. We are thinking of you at this difficult time.

Condolence from Doug and Betty Clarke on July 6th, 2020 2:31 pm

We are saddened to learn that John has recently p[assed away. John was responsible for me getting my first job in 1959 with the Bank of Montreal in Tilbury, Ontario. John’s dad, Dan Bowerman was the branch manager. I met John through my brother Gary Clarke. When John was first in the car business in King City with Laurie Veal Chev. Olds, I bought a new Oldsmobile from him. John was highly regarded in the automotive business and had so many generations of customers (even Lady Eaton of the Eaton Family)
I am sure he will be missed by everyone who knew him. Our condolences to all his family. May John Rest in Peace.

Doug and Betty Clarke Markham Ontario
