Dr. John died peacefully in his 88th year on Thursday, March 8, 2018 at Glen Stor Dun Lodge, Cornwall following a courageous final few years living with Alzheimer’s disease.  Loving husband of 64 years and very best friend of Nancy (nee Semple).  Wonderful and dearly loved father of Elizabeth (Neil) McGregor of Kanata, Susan Loree (Neil) of Gananoque and Peggy (Jim) Reid of Caledon.  Beloved Grampa of Erin, Taylor, Wyatt, Jennifer and Brendan.  Also survived by dear brother Bill, loving niece Dierdre (Linda) and several cousins.  Predeceased by his parents Frances (nee Jordan) and Ellis Taylor. 



John practiced dentistry in Cornwall for over 50 years and was a strong proponent of preventive dentistry.  He loved his work, especially his appointments with children.  He found time to play tennis, golf and badminton and to fish and hunt with his friends, but his greatest lifelong interest was singing which he enjoyed in the Centennial Choir and in Trinity Church for many years.  John also was a keen grower of tomatoes and made sure the groundhogs didn’t get to them first.  In the community he was a founding member of the local Heart & Stroke Foundation and supported the Relay for Life through all kinds of weather.
