John was married to the love of his life, Ruby (née Ward) on September 4, 1954, enjoying 2 weeks short of 68 years married.

He was predeceased by his parents Jack and Mary Lowe, his three sisters Mary Hoover, Ruth Piper and Sue Treen, and two brothers Ross and Bill.

John will be dearly missed by his two daughters Irene Leahy (Joe) and Janet Hartshorne (Norm), his three grandchildren Megan Leahy (Chris), Lauren Isherwood (Kyle) and Eric Hartshorne (Rebecka). He also had three great grandchildren, Otto, Parker and Ellie.
