Avril YoungJohn lived on King Edward ave when I was young and he and many other police auxiliary had their meetings at my parents home on Burlington st my dad was Bob Young (paddy). John always sent us a box from Kellogg's at Christmas Just wanted to share a memory. Sorry for your loss
Dave HillJohn Gay was one of the original members of London's Auxiliary Police which was formed from the old Emergency Measures Organization. John was a founding member of the Auxiliary Police Association. He was a big man, very imposing in uniform. He was well spoken and respected by us newer members. It must have been heartbreaking for John to watch the Auxiliaries collapse when Walter Johnston would not let us wear bullet proof vests even though the Lions club offered to provide them. This effectively took us off the street. He served the London community in this way, just like you might be a Lion, an Optimist or Kiwanin. More people should be like John Gay. He deserves our thanks and our respect for his service to London. A heck of a lot of now retired cops can thank him for his covering their backs. Thanks John!
Wilf AlexanderMy condolences to Bill and family. John was a very special friend. He was always on time, a loyal Kellogg employee, and had a great sense of humour. I will miss John very much.
Scott WilsonMy heart goes out to you my uncle Billy. I know you and Grampa shared a close, tight bond together. You where always there for him. I'm saddened by the fact that a man that I looked upto, and had good times together as a child is now gone. Grampa may you rest in forever peace now. As a young boy I was proud of you, and everything you stood for as a man. I was lucky enough to be able to connect with you these last couple of years. We talked about a lot of things in life, and how they played out the way they did. You where a man of knowledge, and a man with a heart of a lion. But most of all Grampa thanks for being just you! I'm glad you and my wife Michelle got to meet each other last year when I took us all for lunch. She thought you where a very stand up guy. Grampa until we meet again someday up in heaven, RIP Grampa.
Lisa WilsonDear Grampa... In short time I knew you these past couple years, I knew you to be a very kind man. And you are very special to me and dear to my heart. I will miss you dearly. And I will always love you. Please rest in peace my Grampa. Love your grand daughter, Lisa Wilson
