Predeceased by his parents, Gus and Marion (Lake) Lawlor; brother, Gus and sisters Marie Gurrieri and Joan Kavanagh; parents-in-law, Bill and Mildred Hansford; brothers-in-law, Harry Hansford and Don Hansford. Also predeceased by best buddy, Bill Kennedy, who always lovingly referred to John as “the ol’ fella”.

Also left, brothers Bill (Dorothy) and Joe; brother-in-law, Roger Hansford (Angela), sister-in-law, Ruth Noseworthy (always his dancing partner to the waltz, “I Wish I Was 18 Again”); and their families. Also left to mourn, very special friends, the Kennedys of Outer Cove – his second family, whom he loved dearly.
