Very sad to hear the news of the passing of John.
We will miss his visits to Singapore, catch up beers at Muddy Murphys and the fun filled lunches and dinners. Always something to look forward to, now we will treasure the memories. He was an amazing man, full of wisdom and wit, it was such a pleasure to enjoy his company, and compete for the jokes.
On 31st May we will also raise a glass or two in Celebration of his life, remembering how lovely it was to have known him.
Our sincerest condolences to all the family.

Beverley and Robert: Gary and I would like to express our sincerest condolences to all your family on the passing of your father and grandfather. When we were neighbours in the condo building, we spent many evenings together with John and Sarah. He was a wonderful story teller and had quite a sense of humour. We had many laughs together for sure. They were absolutely wonderful people and Gary and I thought so much of them. Both John and Sarah were great people and wonderful neighbours. When we moved, sadly we lost touch with John and Sarah but they were and always will be in our hearts.
Take care and God bless.
We were saddened to hear of John’s passing.. John has been our neighbor at Stoneleigh Condominiums for the past few years. John was always friendly and positive and he will be missed.
Condolences to all of the Winsor family.
Bev, very sorry for your loss. Condolences to you and all the family.
Bev, so sorry to hear of your dad’s passing and sincere sympathy to all your family. We had lots of fun working together at Anthony Insurance many years ago.
Uncle John’s sharp mind and amiable, cheerful character made for great conversations and many good laughs around a dinner table. He always took such interest and consideration into my life, and my brother’s, growing up. Going to Uncle John and Aunt Sarah’s house in SJ always felt warm and inviting, no matter how long I was away. The world will miss his spark. I was so sorry to hear of his passing and my condolences to the family.
Very sorry to hear the news of Uncle John. He and Aunt Sarah were familiar voices on the phone, calling often to speak with mom and dad to say hello and get caught up on how everyone was doing.
Going to town will never EVER be the same. We climbed mountains, hiked 100s kms of trail, ate alot of food together and drank the odd libation. And we laughed….we laughed alot. If you weren’t the first to show up for a party at Paddy Dobbin, you were the last to leave. Rest easy my dear dear friend.
Linda and Peter
Robert, Lois and families.

Bev and Robert : Grateful to have the privilege to have known Uncle John for over 40 years.. My first memories of him were at the Sundance where he embraced Peter and his friends from the North. Entertaining executives didn’t cause him to shy away from us, most would. Karma brought many salt water ducks over the years the last being only a few months ago. Rest in Peace my friend.
Very sorry to read of John’s passing. We have known John for about 10 years as unit owners at the Stoneleigh Condo. He was a great neighbour, a fine gentleman, and will be missed.
Bev, so sorry to hear of your father’s passing, deepest condolences to you at this sad time.

Beverly, Robert and families,
