Beloved father to his daughters Kryn and Chelsea (Stanley). Survived by his sister Lori (Stanley). Will be missed by brother in-law Sean Murphy (Brooke Delong) and sister in-law Lisa Murphy (Rick Waller). Fondly remembered by nieces, nephews, aunts, uncles and cousins. Devoted Great-Uncle to Izzy, Petra and Paisley Blackmore. John battled cancer like he drove his Vintage Dirt Modified race car: hard,courageous and always strong. The “Superman” will be incredibly missed and forever remembered by his Dirt Modified Nostalgia Tour family and friends both on and off the track. John was happiest driving his vintage race car around on many different Canadian and American tracks.

Also, a very generous thank you to KHSC Cancer Centre’s dedicated nurses, doctors and staff. A very generous thank you to all home nurses from CBI; you always made John’s days brighter and easier.
