Deb and family,
I was so sorry to hear of your dad's passing. I remember him from all the times I spent at your house during our school years! He was such a nice dad! Know that I am thinking of you and hoping that your memories will help you get through the days and months ahead. Angie Hubbell Wolanski
Johnny, you will be missed! I held you in high esteem as we were growing up and often thought of you although miles away. Al Mosher
John was a great mentor to me as a young trumpet player. His support and encouragement I respected greatly. Then as it is now I consider it an honor to have been able to play "taps" with John. He embodied all the qualities of a veteran and Legion member. He is a man of dignity, bearing and presence that demonstrated to me how you should conduct yourself at veteran services. Everyone could learn something from him. Tee Rayment
We're very sorry for your loss. I have many fond memories of Johnny and my dad growing up. He played taps at my fathers funeral ( Bob Lawrence), a memory I shall cherish forever. God bless.
I loved my Uncle Johnny so very much! He had such a "live and let live" spirit! I always enjoyed seeing him back home in Dexter, mostly at the Legion or at a family graduation party etc. My husband, Clyde has great memories of "deer hunting" trips at Johnny's cabin with my daddy and Dave. He was always fun and loving and my prayers are lifted high for my cousins and Aunt Joyce. I pray that he is in heaven enjoying catching up with daddy (Floyd Knope) and Uncle Bill Baldus.
