    My heart and prayers go out to your family in the loss of Johnny. I have very fond memories as a child growing up with your family and how Johnny would love to tell me jokes. My dad told me tonight that when they brought me home from the hospital to Tobermory to my grandma’s home that Uncle Burt came with them. I haven’t seen Johnny in many years but I have thought about him often and the time we spent together as a child. We used to live beside your family and my sister Connie and Mouse would always seem to get into trouble. My Mom (Aunt Patsy) and Dad (Uncle Dawn Fulford) send their condolence to the family. Hugs to all.

    Love Louise Fulford Rose and Uncle Dawn and Aunt Patsy Fulford

    To Connie, Betty and the Kaus family: My deepest sympathies to all of John’s family. I first new Johnny when I was just little, as he and my brothers went to school together. I will remember him as kind, caring and very much a gentleman. Johnny’s love of music and song, and his smile and love of telling a cute joke or story will never be forgotten. Rest peacefully Johnny.

    I am honoured and blessed to have known your Brother. He was truly a blessing in my life and I will miss him. May fond memories of your dear Brother bring you comfort during this hard time in your life. My heart and prayers go out to you and your family. I enjoyed seeing him a few years ago while at the Chinese Buffet in Owen Sound with My Mom and Dad (Dawn and Pat Fulford). I have many fond memories of your family from when I was a small child, and often think of John, he was such a kind soul. He will always remain in my heart. Love Connie (Fulford) Bowie

    Farewell to a very dear friend. I cherish every moment I was blessed enough to share with Johnny. John will be missed dearly by all his friends at Community Living Meaford and his wonderful stories and many jokes. My condolences to his loving family, he talked often and fondly of you all. He proudly shared photos in his wallet oh his family members and shared many tales about his adventures with you. I will truly miss the times I have shared with him. I am deeply saddened with Johnny’s passing but know he is in a better place and been received with open arms. Johnny was always the best part of my day. ❤️

    We have many fond memories of Johnny .He read to my kids and played with them when they were young. I have a great picture of him at a birthday party. He was always cheerful .I know he will be missed. Your family is proof of the value of love. He would never have lived to be 66 yrs. old without a very loving family.
