    Hello, I also worked with John at MT&T….in what was PBX. There was a lot of laughter..I remember those days fondly. My maiden name was Vickery….then Boswell….
    If I could turn back time…those were the best of my working days . John had such a dry sense of humour. Take care Sharon, thinking of you,

    Jeff, Shannon and Sharon, my deepest condolences on the passing of Uncle John. I will always remember him fondly for his contagious smile and laugh. I know he loved you all very much. It was especially obvious whenever he spoke of his lovely grandchildren, who clearly brought him great joy. My heartfelt sympathy to the entire family.

    Dear Sharon & Family,
    I was so saddened to hear about John’s passing. John was just one of those Blessed individuals that just left a lasting impression on everyone he encountered. I can still remember his wolf man jack routine . I had the pleasure of working with John for many years at MT&T Sales and then our paths crossed again at Commissionaires NS , “Johnny G… as I referred to him, just made it a pleasure to come to work,even on those not so good days .. His personality was infectious . John spoke so often about how proud he was of his son and daughter and especially his Grandchildren, his heart and his soul.
    We have lost a very kind hearted person…. but we know that our Lord and Saviour has another mission for him . God Rest Your Soul.
    Family , Please know that You are in my thoughts and prayers .

    John’s family, It is with a heavy heart that I write this, we have lost a fine person with John’s passing. I also worked with John at Northbrook school with CPIC, I was on Watch 2 he Watch1. I always loved it when John would relieve us off our last nite shift, big smile, so funny. always early. His shenanigans, dancing, the way he would tell stories. Rarely was John in a bad mood, very rare, but I know its only human to have bad times too.John was trained by Monika and I helped, so we always were laughing, what a character. He loved his time with his granddaughters, never missing a story about them and his girls. Please accept my condolences, John will be remembered.

    Dear Family, I was saddened to hear this news today and wanted to offer my condolences. I would have worked with John when he was a PBX and LArge Systems Sales Exec. at MT&T in the ’90’s. John was always very kind to me and was a bright light in our hearts. He would treat us with a big smile each day, and I remember his references and impersonations of Bugs Bunny characters. I’m thankful that I knew him and truly sorry for your loss. With sympathy, Vicky & Michael Craig – Halifax, NS. (TSR/BSR back in the good old days). RIP Johnny G
