When I remember John, I think of kindness and gentleness. Enjoyed our talks at the grocery store when I would run into you after my yoga class. Always enjoyed the good food you would bring to our home group at Indian Hills. Absolutely shocked that you would be taken from us so suddenly. Makes me realize to never take anyone for granted that we will see them again. Your sweet spirit remains ever near even though you have crossed over to the other side.

I had the privilege of knowing, and working with, John for about 10 years at Raytheon Aircraft Co. A true friend. Thank you for your friendship, your service and your sacrifice, John! You will be missed.

I worked with John in inspection department at Raytheon/Hawker. He was a great guy to work with. And yes he could talk! He would bring deep fried Turkey to our pot lucks and they were always good. Will be missed. God Bless.

Dear Family,

Although I do now know any of you I have been privileged to know and fellowship with John for more than 20 years at Indian Hills.

My sincere condolences to each of you. John knew my dear wife Betty also and she passed in 2010. Thankfully, and by his grace, we know where their spirits now reside. Yes, they have been promoted.

Let yourselves be comforted and encouraged by His sweet Spirit.

I had the great opportunity of working with John for 15 years. He would visit sometimes to just chat in our welding department at Hawker Beechcraft just because. He was a kind man and we'll be missed. Good Bless him and his family.

I am going to miss you alot. I have enjoyed being with you on Saturdays going out to eat, or just sitting at the house cuddling up together watching television and talking. It has been great knowing and caring for a wonderful man like you for the last four years.

I worked with John for 9 years at Hawker, and enjoyed every minute of it. He was a great friend and a great co- worker who was always talking about his kids and grand kids. You all are in my prayers as you celebrate the life of a great man. God Bless.

John was a long time member of our Indian Hills Church home group and Friday Night Supper Club. It wasn't the same tonight without him, but we celebrated him eating at one of his favorite places. We enjoyed the soft serve ice cream in his honor. John, we miss your laugh, your keeping us up on current events and when we watch NCIS we'll always think of you. We love you, John Boy!

John, we are really going to miss you. Your sense of humor, your laughter and your funny jokes kept us laughing. We will never forget the joke that you couldn't ever tell right, "He's cripple, you know." Gary and the rest of the Home Group will miss your good cooking. We are just going to miss YOU.

We love you John,
