Peacefully early Sunday morning February 3, 2002, at his home in Cornwall, Ontario. Raised in Stouffville, Ontario, he joined the Royal Air Force during WWII and was awarded the Distinguished Flying Cross while serving in the 101st Squadron, Lancaster bombers. John was in the first graduating class of the Journalism Program at Carleton University. He worked in the Motion Picture division of the Canadian army and served in Korea, Cyprus and Germany. John joined CBC-TV in 1961 and for the next 3 decades was a familiar face to Canadians as a Parliamentary reporter, war correspondent and news anchor. He will be missed and remembered always by his wife Rosalind Drewery, his children - Laine, Lauren, Dale, Scott and Brant and his granddaughter Caitlin. He is predeceased by his first wife and mother of his children, Joan Drewery (nee Jackson). For those who knew and loved John, it will be an emptier world without him. A Funeral Service will be held at the Central Chapel of Hulse, Playfair & McGarry, 315 McLeod Street, Ottawa, on Thursday, February 7, 2002. The Ottawa Citizen, 05-02-2002
