    Elaine and Family,

    So sorry to hear of John’s passing. He always brought a smile to my face! I think it was two ornery, kindred spirits. Glad he is no longer suffering or in pain. Please let us know if we can do anything.

    Love,
    Scott & Jenn

    He was my neighbor and friend and a bossy father type during my childhood days! I cherish my memories of this giant of a man with the heart of a teddy bear! Loved and forever missed. Deepest sympathy to Elaine, Julie, Johnna, Michelle, Virginia and Kelly and all his beloved grandchildren, sons and daughters in law and the many, many lives this great man touched! What a huge gain for Heaven and a great loss for our community a and his family!

    I’ve known John for about 6 years. I didn’t spend a lot of time with him, but
    every time I spoke with John, he was the kindest, warmest, fun-loving guy. He was one of those guys you just knew for sure that he had a good heart. I don’t think life is about building a long list of accolades, but rather is really measured in how you treat others with love and kindness. From what I could tell, he did that profoundly. Thanks John. God Bless.
