'Uncle' John was one of the greatest men I've ever met. So many great memories of the times we spent together at deer camp (Along with the rest of the Hoop-N-Hollow crew). Memories & wisdom that will last a lifetime. He will be deeply missed, but never forgotten.

It saddens me to hear of John's death. Though i have not seen or spoken with him or any the family in years, i have nothing but great memories. He truly was a great man who has left behind an amazing family! My heart goes out to Kathleen, Beth, Sherri and Jonah who along with John were shining stars in my life! Words cannot express my feelings! May god give all of you the strength to get through this.

So sorry to hear of John’s passing. I have fond memories of playing church softball with John and talking with him at his daughters sporting events. He was one of the finest men I have ever known.
Our thoughts are with Kathy and the girls and their families.
