John was predeceased by his parents Howard and Audrey Heibein and his great-niece Hallie Romans. He will be missed by his many nieces and nephews, in-laws, extended family and his furry friend, Baxter.

John was a kind spirit, gentle soul and a kid at heart. He graduated from both Eastwood Collegiate and the University of Waterloo. John loved his job as an Education Assistant at KCI where he spent many years impacting the students and the staff around him. John was a devoted sportsman. He was an all-Ontario athlete, competing in many sports, including track, hockey and of course, golf.
