Margaret and Juliana and extended family-I was sorry to hear through the LBJ School that John is no longer with us. John lived in Jester when I was an undergraduate, and I met Margaret when he was in graduate school in Austin. It sounds as though he has shared a wonderful life with his family.
I will pray for blessings and comfort for his family thinking of him safely in heaven. Anne Nappa, Austin, TX
I met John in the 1990s while setting up an LBJ School Alumni Association chapter in Houston. John's knowledge of the law and non-profits was instrumental in establishing the current organization. My condolences to his family. He was a great man & will be missed.
We are so deeply sadden by the loss of Deacon John Denson. He was an example to so many with his kind caring spirit. He touched so many lives and did so much for us all at Our Lady of Walsingham. We are all blessed that he was a part of our lives. Our condolences to Margaret, Julianna, Elena and all the family.
Our hearts were broken when we learned of John(ny)'s untimely death. He and his parents and sisters became our neighbors upon his father's military retirement, and we have many wonderful memories of those times in the old neighborhood. John was a great kid, and he grew to be a great man. Our heartfelt sympathy and prayers are with you, Margaret and Juliana, and with you, Elena, Rosie and Helen. Your lives have enriched ours immeasurably.
Matthew and I were so sorry to hear of your loss. We always enjoyed having Deacon John at the 4:30 service. His wonderful smile and deeply felt commitment to Our Lady Of Walsingham was a joy to watch. We were blessed by knowing him.Cindy and Matthew Dionne
Deacon Denson was a blessing to me and my boys - he will be sorely missed. May light perpetual shine upon him.
My sincere condolences.
Ms. Rosey Hicks
I am greatly saddened by the passing of John and will keep you in my prayers. John had a unique impact on my late wife Roseann as the two of them conversed on various topics always leaving an enlightened and inspired impression on Roseann. John gave so much to others and his memory will be lasting. God bless you and may you find peace going forward.
We are saddened to lose our friend, and lament that he won't get to see these three Godchildren grow up. We know though that he is in a good place, with no pain and no worldly worries. We send our love and prayers to Margaret and the rest of his family, and wish them strength dealing with the loss of their wonderful loved one.
Margaret, I am stunned to learn of John's death. I just saw his obituary in the Texarkana Gazette. His mother, Elena, is my godmother. Please accept my deepest sympathy. John is not one to be forgotten, although it had been years since I'd seen him. May God help you through your sorrow and our Mother Mary be with you.
I'm so sorry to hear about John's passing I like to express my deepest condolences to the Denson family, I had the pleasure and fortune to have met John when we were teenagers and I knew then that he was a special person
It is an honor to say that I knew John while he was at Core Laboratories. It always had time for everyone and was so very kind. My prayers are with the family. I celebrate his life. Thank you for sharing with so many.
I knew John from his days at Core Lab and am so sorry to hear of his passing. John and I had a number of opportunities to discuss our faith with one another and participated in early morning bible studies back in 2004-2005 time frame. He will be missed by many.
I pray that you and your family feel a strong sense of God's presence, peace and comfort now and in the days ahead.
Margaret, I am so sorry. It has been an honor to know John since our days at the LBJ School. I've never known a kinder man or one who loved and cherished his wife more than John. And such a proud father, too. My heart goes out to you, Juliana and all of your family.
Margaret, Juliana, Elena and family,
Our deepest sympathy and prayers are with you during this difficult time. John blessed our parish and our particular family in countless ways. I'll never forget John's humble remark just before his ordination reflecting his admiration and respectful regard for Margaret when he noted she had studied along side him and knew as much or more than he, yet he was the one being ordained. He was awed at God's plan for his deaconal ministry. John's gentle eyes bespoke his true care, deep listening, and graced understanding, and danced with his quick humor. Deacon John was an agent of God's healing, compassion and encouragement for our family. Our lives are profoundly blessed because of his selfless giving. May Our Lady mantle each of you in consoling graces and may she behold John in union with Her Son. We give thanks to God for Deacon John.
John was a man of integrity, a man of God, a very generous and caring person, and a person that I was proud to call my friend. Don't look now, but he is liable to start painting Heaven burnt orange.
My heart aches but I'm still trusting God to shower down peace and restore joy. So many people were blessed because of his generosity and love of/for people. Gone way too soon.
Margaret, Juliana and family -
John was one of the most generous people I've known in my life; he was a great friend and boss and I had a great deal of respect for him. We had a lot of stories to tell from our younger days at Baker Botts and then later at Core Lab, and I can say without a doubt I was trained by the best! It saddens me that he was called home so young; but I believe God is in control and have to know that His ways are higher than ours. I am left with deep sorrow and a huge hole with his passing but I will joyfully remember all the ways he poured into so many lives and I will try to live by the example he set.
God bless each of you and my the Lord give you peace and joy that passes understanding.
Susan Kicey (and family - Ted, Kristyn and Drew)
We will miss John so much in our neighborhood. He looked after all of us and was always the first to volunteer to tackle our community concerns. Most of all we will miss his friendship and appreciate everything both of you have done for us over the years. Sincerely, Troice & Jesse Jenckes
Our part of the world has lost a good hearted God fearing man and we thank our Lord for his service at Our Lady of Walsingham. Margaret, my heartfelt sympathy and prayers are with you and the family.
