John was very intelligent and always seeking knowledge to deepen his faith in Jesus. He was also one of the nicest men. In all the years I have known John at St Catharines Church, I never heard an unkind word out of his mouth. He delighted in his role at the annual Social Justice dinner. I think he really is Santa Claus 😀

As many of you know, we lost our beloved Father, Grandfather, Uncle... this week. Over the decades, my Dad (John Kokinda) greatly supported Dr. James Dobson's work in helping today's families in so many ways. Next to God, Dad's family was the most important thing to him in this life. Dr. Dobson has done practical work over the decades in supporting and encouraging families so he was my Dad's "go-to" when it came to that. I have attached the link to his current ministry. If you would like to present a gift in memoriam of our Dad, please click on the link to make a donation. Write "In memory of John Kokinda" in the comments section. I spoke with this ministry, and they said this would be the easiest way to accomplish this. Thank you for considering honoring our beloved Father in this way. May God bless all of you!
