Our deepest condolences to Joyce and sons, and to all the Cantwell families. Years ago our mother was in and out of hospital. Johnny worked there. She and the other patients loved to see him working on the floor. He treated them with respect and lots of humour. He gave them much needed laughter. Later, our father spent a lot of time at Johnny's parents house playing cards. On stormy days, Johnny often came and picked up Dad, so Dad didn't have to drive. These two examples of Johnny's kindnesses to our family show the kind of person he was. We shall always remember his goodness.

Joyce, David, Johnny, & all my Cantwell cousins. My sincere condolences to you all. Johnny was large as life itself, and the words “ can’t help you” were not in his vocabulary. He was always the first one to step up and help out anyone, myself included. He was always so good to my Mom when ever she was in hospital with lots of visits and cheering up. I’m sure she was pushing through the crowd in heaven to welcome him. R.I.P Johnny, forever remembered.

Sending condolence to Joyce and family and the Cantwell Family.......knew Johnny and his family for many years and would love to meet him occasionally out and about. He always had time to stop and chat and always asked about my Mother. Thinking of you during this time.
Joyce, John, David, Marie, Donna, Christine, Tony, Wayne, Denise, Steve, Pam and the Randell Family. There are no words at a time like this, yet there are lots of words to be said about the type of person Johnny was. He was truly a ray of sunshine. He did what he could to help others, the various communities and charities. Growing up next door to Johnny gave us cause for many debates and laughs over the years. Our daughter was hospitalized years ago and she had the privilege of having Johnny attend to her and to this day she still sings his praises. That was the type of person he was, he was a compassionate man. I am truly sorry that we can’t be with you in your time of need, but remember you are in our thoughts and prayers. Johnny, soar high my friend until you reach the heavens. You will truly be missed.

To John's family, his wife Joyce,children,John and David, his grand children, Daniel, Jordan and Lucas, his brothers and sisters: Wayne, Tony,Steve, Marie, Madonna,Denise, Pamela, Christine,Roxanne and their families and to all John's relatives I offer my sincerest condolence for the untimely passing of John. Having read all the very positive and true remarks and comments already posted there is little I can add since John's life style and character was beautifully captured. Yes, John was a very community oriented individual and a person dedicated to his church.He was also a Brother Knight in the 3rd. and 4th. degrees of Cabot Council and Assembly where he held several positions on the executive. In addition he was a fellow member on the Board of Administration for Assumption Parish.I will always remember his visits when I was hospitalized for several months.You always knew when John's shift had started or when he came on the floor because you could always hear his hearty laugh as he joked with or lovingly teased the other staff members before he came to cheer me up.John was always there to lend a helping hand,brighten one's day or help whenever needed.Using an old saying he was always :johnny on the spot:. I can't help thinking that heaven became a little more beautiful upon John's arrival and I feel sure that his parents, Bill and Catherine(Kit) and brother Bill and other relatives were glad to see him and welcome him home to ever lasting peace,happiness and eternal life as promised by Jesus. To all his family I hope that the precious memories you have will help you during those difficult days and the many days to come.I also pray that God will be with you to ease your sorrow and pain.Rest in peace my friend until we meet again. Gerald Cantwell
So hard to believe that John won't have a story to tell me when we would meet at Tim's. Guess the angels will be entertained now. May his gentle soul rest in peace. To Joyce and family , please accept our condolences.
Ron and Marie Power
To the Cantwell family I am sorry to hear of John’s passing. My sincere condolences. I worked with John on Neurology. He was kind to his patients and they loved to see him coming. You are in my thoughts. RIP John
John was a good man. Our condolences to his family.
To Sir John's family I want to express sincere sympathy. While Master of the Fourth Degree of the Knights of Columbus I had the privilege of conducting the installation of officers for the Cabot Assembly several times and I met John on those occasions. He certainly was a dedicated member of the Cabot Assembly so he will be missed deeply by his fellow Sir Knights. I have great respect for people like Sir John, men who make a valuable contribution to their assembly in their own quiet but effective way. No doubt there was a place waiting for him in Heaven.
