Thank you to John for all his years of service to the Kiwanis club. He will be truly missed.
John was my mentor and good friend throughout my career with Ohio State University Extension. I spoke with him last week and planned to pick him up for lunch on Friday. I will miss John, his great stories, and mostly his friendship.
I ate lunch every Wednesday with John at Greenville Kiwanis for the past 6 years. I never thought last Wednesday would be the last Kiwanis meeting with him. He was a good man, full of knowledge, and a real gentleman. He loved going to Kiwanis and he added a lot to the club. He helped out to the very end of his life. My condolences to the family. Joe Payne
