  • Notes 
    • He was named for Sir John A. MacDonald:
      "Uncle Bob, then a teenager, was standing near Sir John A. MacDonald one time in Kingston with his hands in his pockets. John A. turned to him and said, 'Young man, do not stand like that with your hands in your pockets. You will never earn a living that way.' They named a son after Sir John A."' - Gord Beatty

      He served with the Quebec Regiment, Canadian Infantry, 13th Battalion, service number 24158. He was a lance corporal at the time of his death.
