To the Zenko family,
Our sympathy to you on the loss of your Dad, Grandfather and Friend. He was a very genuine man who always took time to have a conversation whenever we met. We remember him as a county counsellor as well as a dedicated school board member who was very interested in the education of children. When we bought our acreage in his neighbourhood he told us how delighted he was to have us as neighbours. May you keep all the good memories close to your hearts and may he rest in peace.

From: Jim Hawkins and Sheila Thompson
Relation: Friend

We would like to convey our condolences to Deb and the rest of the family. In 1976 when we moved to our place near Elk Point, John was one of our very first visitors. We sat in our kitchen and had a cup of tea as he welcomed us sharing information about the community. He was that kind of guy. We are sorry for your loss.
