Predeceased by his parents Ellsworth and Kathleen Rogerson (Jack Fitzallen), his in-laws Margorie and Stan O’Farrell and his brother-in-law, Art Hinton. Born in London in 1945, John was an all-around athlete who played tennis, baseball, hockey and football with passion. He was a beloved member/board member of the Highland Country Club and was a respected jeweller who was an integral part of downtown London business community. He loved spending time at both the family cottage in Port Franks and golfing with the guys at Saddlebrook in Florida. He was the strong silent type with a unique sense of humour. John was a gentleman and a "gentle man" whose generous spirit led to involvement with many charities including the Boys and Girls Club, The Round for a Reason, and Cystic Fibrosis Foundation.
