Our sincere condolences to Barbara, Drew and their families on the loss of their beloved John. What a pleasure it was for us to know him and be part of his "Australia Adventure" on our cattle station in the Northern Territory. We shared many a laugh.
We will be forever grateful for his enthusiasm in assisting us all in any way he could, when we re-visited the USA.
May his family take comfort in the fact that so many people loved this man and that he had made a forever lasting impact on us all. Rest in peace my friend until we meet again.

John & Barbara have been close friends of the "Aussie Bunch" for many years. There visit to Australia was filled with adventure, friendship and love. John was a "family" member, looking after both Larry & myself as well as our kids when we visited the USA. We look forward to meeting him on the other side. Our thoughts and Prayers are with Barb and the rest of the family. Larry & Connie Bright Australia

I'm praying for you right now and hope all will come to a comforting knowledge of the Son.

My thoughts and prayers go out to you and your family, Barbara. I have known John a long time, as did my deceased husband (Deputy Lennie Huey). He is now in Heaven with Lennie, and the rest of our law enforcement friends that died and worked at MCSO and especially District 4. They are now watching over us from above.
