John was a great guy and a true gentleman. I remember sharing a laugh with him when I opened a real estate office in the old homestead about the legendary "car in the living room" story. I was in the line at the wake when I received a call that my mother was ill, and I ended up having to leave to bring her to the hospital before I could pay my respects in person. I'm very sorry for your loss.
Dear Sheila and family, I just read about John's passing. I am deeply saddened and send my deepest condolences to you and the family. My dad thought the world of John and considered him his best friend. He was such a kind, generous and mild mannered man. I am sure him and Pete are having a little bit of a good time right now. May God bless you all at this difficult time.
My deepest sympathies to all of the Dolan family. You are in my thoughts and prayers for peace and comfort.
Our thought and prayers are with you. I hadn't seen John in a long time, but my only memories of him are fond ones.
Sean and Jen Maloney
I had such a good visit with John at David and Diedre's place in Florida. We watched the opening of the 2010 Olympics and drove out into the reserve and found panther tracks. John's quiet comfort with himself, his family and the world was an inspiration for all of us that inevitably reach the end of a live lived well.
