My condolences to all. Your family and our profession have lost a great man. He left an impact on me, from his welcome when I started in town in 1997, and on our area community of veterinarians. He has a legacy of helping animals and the people who love them.

My wife April and I have many fine memories of John; he was a great neighbor and a very kind man. He shared with us his love of birding, and, more generally, a wonderful zest for life.
Our condolences to the whole family.

My thoughts and sympathy go out to all his family. He was a wonderful person and he truly enjoyed working with animals. I always enjoyed working with him while I was becoming a veterinarian.

Our sympathy to all. We will keep John in our thoughts forever. He was a good and faithful friend to our family. John has treated several of our pets over the years,at no charge. I first met John when he came to Lafayette. He borrowed my cattle chute. His clinic was in the old building on Highway 52 north of town. He was an excellent example for Veterinary Medicine and it was good to him. Our veterinary group misses him at our monthly dinner meetings. It's hard to say good bye to my good friend John.

I will pray for John's should rest in peace.

Your dad was one of the nicest people I knew. I remember the first time I met him I had taken my pug puppy in to see him. He said "hi" to me and promptly plopped down on the floor to play with Spooker. I knew who was important.
Years later as I continued to use him as a vet and had changed to having cats, he cried when he had to put my precious Pewter down. You can't teach compasion.
I know the last few years have been difficult but now he's with your mom and a menagerie of pets.

Lisa--Our paths have crossed a couple of times through piano lessons from Chi Lin or talking about biopsy specimens you've sent to the ADDL, so I was sorry to hear of the death of your dad. Judging from his book--I Never Went to Work--he must have been a wonderful vet, father, and friend to many. Thinking of you.

Sorry to hear of the passing of your Dad, what a gentle soul. My parents and I both took our pets to your Dad for years, he was just as concerned for our beloved pets as we were.
May God give your whole family peace. I am sure there were many tails wagging when he entered heaven to greet him.
