John had a great love of sports, particularly hockey. He played minor hockey in Edmonton, Junior A for the St. Albert Saints and the Sherwood Park Crusaders, and for the U of A Golden Bears while attending University. He coached Bantam AA and AAA teams in St. Albert and was an assistant coach with the St. Albert Saints. John also contributed to coaching as a father, coaching his two sons and daughter.
John was fair, competitive, and extremely positive. He was affectionately known as “the man with the big smile.” John defined success as simply hard work and perseverance, always emphasizing that hard work would take kids further than talent. He had a genuine love for children, a love for teaching and a love to see his students succeed — the perfect Coach!
