Oh, I have the best memories of "Brierly" , as we called him at the TARP dances in Planeview. My sisters and I always felt like he was part of our family. My sincerest regrets to you all. Earlene (Griggs) Ellis

John was a great friend, great boss, great mentor and a great man. He had a profound influence in many lives, and I am happy that mine is one of them. My sincere sympathy to Lucille, John Jr., Benette and your families. May God embrace you as you grieve your loss.

John was my boss at the Parks & Recreation department back in the 60s. He was a very caring person, and truly concerned with the welfare of those he came in contact with. I have often fondly thought of him over the years. My sympathy to his family.

John reached out to our youth with his kindness and time. He made a speical connection with one of our young men when he encouraged that youth with a gift of his own guitar. We at the Wichita Children's Home will always remember him with much affection.

I remember John from many years ago at TARP dances where he was our security officer. A really good guy.

To John's family and loved ones, "Please accept my deepest sympathy".

Fair winds and following seas sailor.

Thank you for your service to this nation.

Deepest sympathies to the family. My parents and I lived on the corner of Wassel and Mosely and Benette and I became friends in 3rd grade through high school. We played sports all those years for Dawson and school. May the Lord bless you with comfort during this difficult time.

Dear Benette, Lucille, and John Michael: I still see John sitting on the porch of your house on South Mosley with Baron, strumming his guitar and calling the dog "Old Blue." He was the kindest and gentlest of men, and one who will be missed but remembered. May your memories serve as a balm against the pain of loss, and bring you peace. Love, Deb (Jackson) Stover
