Even though Uncle JT and I never met, we exchanged a few phone calls and letters throughout the years. He was always encouraging when I was down and made me feel like he really cared about what I had to say. My only regret was not seeing him in person. Rest in peace Uncle JT, join Mid, and say hello to all your family that went before you. Tell Dad and Mom hi for me. Love, Neva Boyce Womack

My Uncle John was one of the best role models that you could want. He was always kind , polite, and a gentleman in every way.

My first real memory was when my mother passed away, Lourisa Evans Endicott, my Aunt Mid was already with us and Uncle John was flying in to the Dayton airport. My Dad and I met him at the airport. He had a box of the finest chocolates that I had ever had. This started my love affair with chocolate candy. I ate the whole box in a short amount of time. I did not share. And I hid the box from others. This started a habit which I continue to this day.
You could say Uncle John started it.

Everyone in our family have a favorite story or moment with Uncle John. Even our grandkids.
Uncle John loved to talk, tell a good story, and always had that great sense of humor.
Most of all he was a Godly man who loved his wife, family, and country.
