Condolence: The Corlett Family:
A number of years ago I was working with NS. Public Works on a job in Springhill at the Community College and J.C. were doing the mechanical. The lady Principal was giving John a hard time about getting the job finished. His response was, "If you guys would put out a few more plumbers, we could do it!" Enough said!

Another Time I was having trouble finding well water at our Wallace cottage lot. I asked John and he told me where to drill. I did and the problem was solved.

He was a great man to work with.
