Together they went to Stephenville, NL where he worked for the Liner Board Mill. After eight months he answered a call for a job in the Yukon, then on to Timmins and later Mississauga, ON. Johnny retired in 1993 and moved to Nova Scotia. His grandchildren really enjoyed and will miss the “candy rides” with Grampy Johnny.
