    When I heard John had passed I kept telling myself that was impossible. He was one of the good ones. We always talked about fishing and tell each other about our grand fishing stories.

    Gosh, unbelievable! John will not be forgotten. Young men with his demeanor just rarely exist these days. The smile, the kindness and compassion as a human being is so rare.

John was the kind of person, no matter what was going on; he would always have a smile for you.I will sooo miss our lunch room chats!!! God Bless all of Jonn’s family and friends! May the comfort of Gods grace be with you all. John is now dancing the streets of gold with our Lord. He is just a breath away, still close to all your hearts Forever.

    Ah John, sometimes I still think about you and all the awesome times we had in highschool and college. Still surreal to me. I’m sorry I wasn’t able to make your send off party when you were moving to AZ, one of the biggest regrets of my life. Fishing for perch and going back to your parent’s house to fry them up was always a good time. I miss you man.
