  9. Wow. What a loss. This will affect many friends and family. Had many motorcycle trips with this man and many laughs. RIP in peace buddy

  10. JP was the one who always called me ‘The Mouth’ from the time we met when I was about 10 years old and in return I called him ‘The Frog Prince”. He was like a brother to my dad, Al Ekman, and they spent many years together flying around the world, then after retirement, biking together. JP and dad always got together whenever dad went to the East Coast or when JP came to Ontario. Life was more exciting and colourful when JP was involved as he was always dreaming up some scheme or another. Remember back in the early 2000s when JP staged his own wake so he could enjoy the party? I still remember the pictures! Jeannine and family, our deepest condolences on your loss. JP will be missed but never forgotten.

  11. Condolences to family and friends on JP passing. I met JP a decade ago while biking in NS and when we talked about being Veterans, the bond was stronger. Going to miss that smile and the conversations we both had. RIP Brother, you will be missed!!!

  12. JP, you’ve done your last preflight and flight to the clouds. Rest easy brother knowing you’ll be missed. 💔

  13. I’m so sorry for the loss of JP. He was one of my Father’s friends in and out of the military. They worked together for many years. My Father, Allan Ekman will be sad with the news of his passing. JP even gave a speech at my wedding in 1981. He always reminded my sister, Patti and I that we had to “kiss a lot of frogs” to find the best one.
