John was a dear friend. He was open and honest, a caring person who took time to listen and would often jump in to help out. That he is no longer here really sets me back.
Happy birthday, buddy – today is your day. You will be very missed.
My heart goes out to you and your family at this difficult time. May the “God of all comfort” uplift you and help ease your pain. (2 Corinthians 1:3, 4)
It was our privilege to have known and worked with John, who was a good and kind colleague. Our condolences to all his family and friends.
Lisa, Shauna and Kristen,
So sorry to hear about your stepfather John. With my deepest sympathy.
John was kind and supportive to all, a wonderful husband to Lisa, and a sweet, funny brother-in-law to me. Love him and miss him.
John was such a kind and compassionate man. So many talents this man could boast of..but he wouldn’t . John, you will be missed. Every time I see a black cat, I can’t help but think of you. So many you rescued and took care of. May Heavens gates be open wide for you.
d so sorry s
You will be missed so sorry s
The loss of John is as sudden as it is shocking. I was fortunate enough to consider John a friend, and we worked together on things designed to save the lives of others. There was no way any of us could have anticipated the call we got this morning. Not possible. Couldn’t happen. Not to John. He’s just too nice, too good, too liked, too loved, too… a whole bunch of things… to be gone. He will be missed, and once again this world is a little less off for not having this awesome human being on the planet.
John my friend you will be sorely missed!!
