I had the pleasure of working down the hall from John at the Department of Law before I retired. He was an outstanding lawyer, of course, but what most impressed me about him was his kindness. He would go out of his way to complement others and to share his knowledge and experience. He was a very special individual and I felt fortunate to have known him.

The Kroll family sends our deepest sympathies to you all. We enjoyed getting to know him at the rink and on our hockey trips. Seemed like John would always find a golf course for the kids to play at during some of the trips and Zak always told us how "cool" Johh was. I'll miss running into him at Fred's and hearing how the family is doing...may time and memories help you make it thru this difficult time. Shari Kroll

I met John within mere weeks of starting a new job at the Alaska Bar Association. He was instantly a steadfast supporter and comrade in our joint goals of equal access to justice. He was creative, tenacious, patient, and ever so kind. Ten years later it was like not a day had passed since we first met--he was just as committed to the cause and of course, had possibly grown even more kinder. The loss of John is huge to many circles--family, friends, community--and I thank the Treptow family for having shared their amazing lion of a husband, father, and friend with all of us. I'm thinking of you all.

I'm very sorry to hear that John passed away. In our dealings as attorneys, he was honorable, competent, fair and you could trust him at his word. That is high praise for an attorney. But even more, he was a good man.

The Rounds family was so shocked and saddened to hear of this. WE adored this wonderful hockey dad and family man as we knew him. Mr T. was an all time favorite of the hockey moms, such a steady gentleman, kind and consistent.
He also mentored Taylor as he headed off to Law school, helping him decide where to get his education, this took place at the Blue Line club at the Ice rink.
We spent many Thanksgivings and Christmas breaks traveling, he enjoyed his boys and was always a proud father. He also provided Legal help for the team!
Big hugs to you all as you face life remembering him always, as we all will. The Rounds fam

To my beloved Treptow family, my heart is broken for your loss. I wish I could take your pain away, this is so very sad. Barbara I think about you and the boys all the time, John is and always will be one of the greatest men I will ever know. I love you all so much, I'm so sorry.

To Matthew, Andrew and Adam; The loss cuts deep... Your Dad was my all time favorite Hockey Dad. On our trips to B.C. he would share the most romantic stories of how he met your mom and how quickly and deeply they fell in love. And how quickely your family became to be. You each gave him so much to be proud of. He emplifies the word "father" a legacy of unconditional love and respect. I will never forget the time he saved my Trevor John Buckmeier (3 years old) from certain death during the Alaska State Hockey Tournement when Subway Sports Center was under construction. My Trevor John managed to get him self hoisted up on an a center beam during the construction while I was distracted by the play. It was your father that said to me in the most calm and angelic voice, "Teri, is that your Trevor John up there on the Center Beam" Followed by... in the calmest voice I have ever heard... "what ever you do, do not call Trevor's name. He went on to calmly talk Trevor off of the center beam into safety. Your Mom is one of the strongest women I know. I am truely priviledged to have known your family and I can honestly say we have missed you. Trevor John is now a U-18 Goalie for the Alaska Allstars and anytime you want to hear the slap of the puck; you know where I will be, behind the net. Huge hugs. I have cancelled my trip to Africa to see you very soon. Best in life. Mama Buck!

To the Treptow Family,

We were both very sad to learn of John's passing. He was a gifted attorney and, as many have commented, a real gentleman in every respect. He was very well liked and his considerable talents will be sorely missed.

Barbara, Andrew, Matt and Adam, my sincere condolences on your great loss. I had the pleasure of working with John in the early 80's at Atkinson, Conway, Bell & Gagnon (as it was known then)and recently at the Attorney General's office. I left the state for 12 years and returned in 1998; I ran into John after 12 years, he never missed a beat he still called me by my first and middle name; He was the only person that has ever done that. John always treated me with kindness and respect. I will miss him greatly.
