    John was a man of great perseverance.Industrious and hard working, determined,with resourceful ingenuity. I will truly miss his snappy sense of humor. What a great person he was to be around. Best wishes to the family. I hope his children can be as resilient as he was when times were hard.

    I just heard, I’m so sorry. He was a great guy, and he never seemed to mind how much time we spent over there with John. Best wishes.
