John is survived by his sister Claire Bresnahan and her husband John of Holliston; his nephew Michael Bresnahan and his wife Hilary, and his niece, Ryann Bresnahan and her husband Ian Simpson. He also leaves behind his great-nephew and niece, Owen and Caitlin, as well as his longtime friend, Debbie Johnstone, and many loving cousins.
