<p>John had an interest in insects at an early age and studied agriculture at the University of Manitoba (BSAH '64), followed by post-graduate study in entomology at the universities of Manitoba (1964-1965), Wisconsin (MS,'68), and McGill (PhD,'82). He practised as a Professional Agrologist in Manitoba (1973-1974), Ontario (1985-2007), and British Columbia (1984-1985, and 2007-present). With the OIA Ottawa-St. Lawrence Branch, he was President for two years (2006-2007); with the BCIA Okanagan Branch, he served as Director-South (2008-2010, 2013-2014), and as Vice-President and President (2014-2015). As a member of the Entomological Society of Canada, he chaired the Insect Common Names Committee and Book Committee, and he co-edited the compendium "Diseases and Pests of Vegetable Crops in Canada" (1994). He served on Penticton's Agricultural Advisory Committee for six years (2008-2014), and on the Board of Governors of the AIC Foundation (now the Canadian Foundation for Food and Agricultural Education; 2014-present). In 2009, he established an under-graduate summer research award at the University of Manitoba's Faculty of Agriculture and Food Sciences.</p>
