    I attended Nevada (Missouri) High School, Class of 1955, with Johnnie. He was a fine gentleman, friendly and unassuming. I send sincere condolences to his family at this sad time.

    The world lost a friendly, humble and humorous soul when John passed. I knew him all his life and was proud to call him a friend. Charlie, Alberta and families. I/we send our sympathy in this difficult time. John, maybe we will meet up in the after life. After some of the stunts we pulled, do you think we will wind up in the same place? Ha!

    Your Friend and Classmate, Jerry and Glenda Glimpse

    Johnnie and I were friends since the 4th grade! We lived one block from each other on spring street! We spent a lot of time together over the years! He was always a pleasure to be around!
