John Theodore was born in Brampton, Ontario on June 6, 1961. At the age of 15, John left home and made his way West.

John embodied the expression “Self-Made Man”.

When John was twenty, he met his future bride Marian Stoffer. They were married in 1990 and had two amazing children Justin and Sydney (Noah Gapp). They will truly miss his guidance and strength. John had an immensely tight bond with his immediate family. They worked hard, played hard and enjoyed traveling together.
