Mary, We were so sorry to learn of John's passing. We always enjoyed being with him at family events. Due to my husband John's recent surgery we were unable to attend his services. I live streamed his funeral service and found it very touching and a loving tribute to a great man. With our deepest condolences, Cousin Renné and John

My condolences to John's family. John was a very special person.
John and I were great friends and spent a lot of time together
our teenage years. Rides downtown late at night in the green
Mustang, playing music loud, driving too fast, ( a little)!
John was a riot, a lot of fun. Fond memories. Rest in peace, John.
