We used to text a lot and keep up on a lot of THE HAPPENINGS and share a few laughs or two. he will be greatly missed. John is in no pain now and he is in Gods hands now. Our condolences go out to his family. Sincerely, Jeff and John.

Our sympathy to the family and friends of John. I was always so happy to see him at the Peter Reunions. He was such an interesting fellow and always looking for more information on the genealogy of the family. May he be truly out of any pain and may he rest in peace.

I was saddened to hear of john's passing. he will be missed by many I am sure. I didn't know john too well. mainly back in the mid 1990's. He was a fun guy to know and to be around. the last time I saw him I knew he was having some problems. I gently squeezed his hand to let him know he wasn't a lone in all this. In death he will be at peace, and will no longer have to deal with the problems he had been dealing with the past few yrs. R.I.P John, I will always remember the kind person you were.
