I am terribly sad to hear of John's passing. John was a colleague at Freescale, a man of great kindness, passion and joy. I learned a great deal from him and appreciated his willingness to impart his experiences to much less experienced colleagues. While I had been out of touch with John the last three years, I often thought of and remembered him and our many conversations together, including several over lunch at the Freescale cafeteria. I can but imagine the pain and grief his passing must cause to those who were close to him. I pray that you will cherish your memories of him and have the strength to comfort each other in your time of grief.
Ida and I extend our sympathy to you and your family. I worked with John for many years, starting in early '80s. He's one of those who shaped, positively, who I am. We'll all miss him and cherish the time he was with us. I'll never especially remember his determination to seek out and do the right thing, and his laugh.
I'm so sorry to hear about John's passing. He hired me at Motorola and was a great mentor. He will be missed.
I am sad to hear of John's passing. I met him in the late 90's while working at Motorola. I remember him as smart, fair, a good businessman, and generally a nice guy. I am sorry for your great loss.
John 14:1-4 â€œLet not your hearts be troubled. Believe in God; believe also in me. In my Father's house are many rooms. If it were not so, would I have told you that I go to prepare a place for you? And if I go and prepare a place for you, I will come again and will take you to myself, that where I am you may be also. And you know the way to where I am going.â€
To the Sansing family,
John was a close friend in college when I was in graduate school at UT. He was such a wonderful person -- honest, kind, gentle and honorable. John had a blazing intelligence that couldn't be missed, although he never showed it off or allowed it to make anyone else feel inferior. I am shocked that he passed at such a young age and cannot imagine your loss. Please accept my sincerest condolences.

I had the pleasure of working with John at Freescale for several yrs. He always able to make me smile and laugh. RIP John...and my deepest condolences to the Sansing family.
Dear Valerie, I am so very sorry to hear of the passing of your wonderful husband, John. While I have not seen you for many years, I have many childhood memories of our families growing up together and what a good friend you were to my brother, Wade.
With deepest sympathy,
When I saw John at your mother's visitation, he immediately made me feel like a special friend of the family, though it had been many years since we had seen each other - he was such a kind man. Please know that Mom and I are thinking of you, Jenna, Aubrey, and the Bauer family, as well as the Sansing family; you are in our prayers. Johnnie Mae and Linda McCreery
Aubrey, Wally, Val, and Jenna,
Keith and I are deeplynsaddened by your loss. Though I only saw your dad at your wedding and the crawfish boil, he was always so full of life and love- for his family and for the crawfish! After reading more on his life, I know he will be dearly missed but more importantly remembered for all the wonderful lives he touched by his passion and involvement with the church and his family.
Your family has been and will remain in our prayers.
Our love and condolences,
Stacy and Keith Pesek

I worked with John a long time ago at the Somerset building with Motorola. He was always one of the nicest managers to work with and I am saddened to hear of his passing. My thoughts and prayers go out to family and friends during this difficult time.
I was stunned to get this news this weekend. Valerie, I am so sorry to hear about John. Carol's and my prayers are with you and the girls though out all this.

Aubrey - I felt the sadness of hearing of your Dad's death - seems pretty young. My Dad died at the age of 60 years and it felt untimely too. I feel the pain that comes with losing a loved especially so early. I hope the passing of time will help to heal the wounds of such sorrow.
My prayers are with you and your family. May God rest your Dad's soul in peace.
Valerie, Aubrey, and Jenna, and all of John's family and friends: a golden heart stopped beating, hardworking hands at rest. God broke our hearts to prove to us, He only takes the best. Peace be with you you.

Jesse and Jackie Wilson
May the peace of Christ enfold and sustain you and your family during this most difficult time. All my love, Cheryl
I am so sorry for your loss. John was a kind, gentle man and loving husband and father. We will miss him very much.
It was with great shock and sadness that I heard the news of John's passing this morning, from my mother, Nancy Byrd. I was one of those "several dozen neighborhood kids" who grew up with John, as referenced in his obituary. In fact, he lived directly across the street in the house I still call the Sansing's house. Although it has been many years since I lived there, my mother still does and the last time I saw John, he was combing through the old Enon neighborhood, and happily I happened to be there. We had a wonderful chat out on the road between our childhood homes. Aubrey had just been born and he was so happy about that. That was the last time I saw John, but think of him and his family often, especially when I go home. To his family...I am so very sorry you lost John. He was one of the good guys.
May God bless you and your family in this time of sorrow.
Our love and prayers to the Sansing family...may you carry him in your hearts forever. Stephen and Ann Zeeck and family
I am so sorry to hear about John. Know that you are in my thoughts and prayers. I wish I could be there during this time. God has a master plan for everything even though we may never understand. I pray the GOD wrap HIS loving arms around you and your family and give you the peace and comfort that only HE can give.
Dear Valerie and Family:
I was so saddened to hear of your loss. I met John once at church. He told me he was a motorcycle rider as my husband. He then assured me even a Pastor,s husband can ride motorcycles. I knew he was a grounded man & had a love for our Congregation & his family. You & your family are in my thoughts & prayers. Katie Rundblad
Dear Valerie, Aubrey, and Jenna,
Although we can't be with you in Austin, we are with you in spirit. We are praying that God will surround you with His love. We thought the world of John.

Ms. Val, Jenna and Aubrey. So deeply saddened about your loss. God has taken one of his angels home. Please receive my deepest sympathy and prayers.
Val and the entire family, we all grieve with you and are in pain for you.
We remembered John in church today, as well as how much support he provided as we started our scary new contemporary worship. I personally remembered the back stretches John taught me as I stood at the sound board!
I'm proud Oak Hill UMC will host your family and the Bethany, Covenant, Emmaeus, and Freescale extended families over the next few days. We are all in prayer for all of you. Please let us know how we can help, now and going forward.

When I first heard of this, I could not believe it. He was a great guy, role model to the kids, and still he showed that you can still enjoy things like his bike ride. He will be missed.
We are so fortunate to have known John. What a blessing his life was to so many. Our heartfelt prayers and love to each of you in your grief and loss of this marvelous man, husband, father, son, and friend.
My prayers are with you and your family. I am so sorry I will be unable to attend due to travel, however Don will represent the Jones. Love, comfort, and peace.
Dear Val, my heart is so heavy for your loss and I want to find that light that I know is there and share it with you.

We love you, Val. Your family is heavy on our hearts.
Val, my heart aches for you and your family. I wish I could be there but know that I am remembering your wonderful John.God be with you and your family.

Val, as you have often counseled me, when there are no words, continue to look to God for he knows and understands what's in our hearts. My prayers are with you and your family during this difficult time. Feel our loving embrace. Lord, hear our prayers.
What a fine man God has called home early! The obituary mentions lots of family that he leaves behind, but I want to include the additional loving family of Covenant United Methodist Church. He will be greatly missed, but remembered with enjoyable thoughts. May God bless John in his new home, and be gracious unto those he left behind.
All of CUMC is heartbroken by your loss.God will hold you in His arms. Louise Biel
We've been praying for you and your family. We are sure that you must still be in shock. Our hearts go out to all of you. The Lord showed me two Psalms this morning for you. Psalm 3:3-4 and Psalm 77. May God be the lifter of your head.
We are with you in your grief.
In His Love and grace,
