“ALIVE FOREVER IN OUR HEARTS AND MEMORIES”
My sympathies to the familly. I worked for John at Coronet Card Shop. He was an amazing boss. RIP John
Aunt Ellie, Lyn, Carol, and Bonnie. Condolences from the Cassidy’s. So many great memories over many decades with Uncle John, Ellie and the cousins. While sad news, it is comforting to know he is now at peace. Janet often reminds me of where my obsession over cars and sound systems came from. Thank you Uncle John and may you Rest in Peace.
Mes sympathies à toute la famille. Vous êtes dans mes pensées.
Ellie, Lyn, Carol and Bonnie and the Olscamp family
John was one of the nicest men we have ever had the pleasure of knowing. We have so many wonderful memories, first in Tracadie as the Babin children then as adults. Louis and I were always so happy to see John drive in to the camp “up-river” before continuing on to the Olscamp “lodge”, always with a great hug and invitation to join his gang for a cocktail once they were set up. He was a gentle man as well as a gentleman. John was a stellar person. Louis joins me in extending to you all our deepest condolences. Our thoughts are with you. May he Rest In Peace. Gale Babin
