He was a wonderful man!
One of my favourite memories is of John visiting and, while happily ensconced in a comfy chair with drink in hand watching sports on the television, he earnestly looked up at me and enquired, “Is there anything Donna can do to help?”. I smile every time I think of it. He will be missed greatly.

Claire Graves and I, Doug Steele express our condolences to the Greenlaw Family. It has been some time since we have visited with John and family but his memory remains strong in our minds.
It is sad, that he is not present with us today and we are happy he had such a long life and created so many pleasant stories for us to store in our memories.
