John was a working family man. He enjoyed travelling and driving. He made a living being a truck driver most of his life in Calgary, Alberta and Winnipeg. He raised his children in Calgary. In later years John moved home to Hollow Water to work as a medical van driver and one term as a band councilor.
John had love and respect for elders and he always made time to visit them. He liked to joke and tease family and friends. Many will remember his smile and quick humor. He showed love to children, teenagers or anyone he met.
Pallbearers are Borden Moneyas, Justin Moneyas, Vincent Moneyas, Jonathon Marsden, Alvin Marsden, Skylar Moneyas and Lionel Moneyas.Print This Obituary & Condolences
