John served with Campus Crusade for Christ, Canada (now Power to Change Ministries) for 30 years. In 1999 John was diagnosed with prostate cancer. It remained contained for a little over three years and began to spread. He joyfully went to meet his Master face to face on Sunday, November 24, 2002. Shortly before his passing, the prayer room in the Campus Crusade for Christ national headquarters was renamed in John’s honor. His legacy of prayer lives on.
