In our book, John is one of the "good guys". We miss his kind spirit and open heart but are so grateful his life touched ours. May peace be with you at this time of sorrow. Your grief is shared by many. In the spirit and truth of the promises of our Lord, we keep you close in our thoughts and prayers. Vicki & Bob

You touched the lives of so many, by being simply you. You taught me that mornings, no matter how bad they really are, are always "good". Your natural gruffness was a characteristic I wouldn't trade experiencing for the world. And you are going to truly be missed. See you in heaven.

Our prayers are with the family during this time of loss. John was a college roommate and also an usher in our wedding. We have found memories of him. May the Lord continue to bless your family.

To Janice,Kelly and the kids: John was such a gentleman and truly one of the good guys. We'll miss him every time we see one of his "works of art" in our house, as well as when we remember his playful spirit and wit. Peace be to all of you, as well as love.
