He also leaves behind his mom Bonnie Woodside, sisters Sherry (Reid) Godfrey, Tracy Haugland, gramma Jeannette Doucette, mother in law Lynda Rose, brother in law Dave Rose, nephew Sterling Godfrey, and many aunts, uncles and cousins.

Predeceased by his father James Haugland, Woody Woodside, Barry Allen, Sterling Haugland, Marc Doucette, Jim Rose, Ken and Hazel Shepherd.

John was a devoted husband, father, son, and brother. His family was the most important thing to him and his mission in life was to be sure that everyone around him was taken care of.

His spontaneity and fun nature inspired adventurous activities with Jordan, Jillian and friends. John lived his life with integrity in both his personal and business life. He was an ardent supporter of Habitat for Humanity and had hoped to take his family somewhere in the world to support the building of a home for people less fortunate.

John’s loyalty, kindness and generosity was endless. He was always there. He leaves behind a void in the fabric of his family, friends,and everyone who knew him.
