John, We have many memories of fun times... Like the time you picked up the dog's bark collar and put it against your throat and barked... You said it hurt but you did it again.. You were certainly colorful... You were Loved here on earth and you will be missed. Say hello to Dianne for us in heaven...

Even though I have not seen you in so long , hearing about your passing really got to me. Growing up you were always so sweet and friendly. I remember you coming and leaving our house with my brother to play basketball a lot. My brother always said you were a good athlete and he loved playing with you..

My heart goes out to your family....may you rest with the angels my friend.
