Sorry to hear of John’s passing. I worked with him at K & M years ago. He was always a fun guy to be around. May his family find peace in God’s promises.

Dear Ken and Tom, Sorry for your loss.

I’ll always remember my Uncle John as being extremely sweet to me and the rest of his nieces and nephews. If I asked him to play a game with me or take me somewhere, the answer was always yes. The only unkind word I ever heard him speak was directed at the TV when the Lions were playing.
