John, we are so saddened by the news of the passing of your Dad. I always enjoyed hearing you talk about him when we worked together. Your face would light up when you spoke of him. The same way your face lit up when you spoke of Sandy and the kids. You are the epitome of a family man. You and your family will be in our thoughts and prayers.
Donna, Denise, Sandy & families....I am so sorry for the loss of your father. He & your mom were great "back door neighbors" when we lived on 127th place. I can remember talking to him & your mom over the fence. What a way to have a conversation! My thoughts & prayers are with you & the family. Sincerely, Kathy Tiano
My Pop was awesome! I will forever hold you in my heart.
John, Sandy and family...to know you is to know your Dad. Truly, the acorn didn't fall far from the tree and his legacy lives on in you. It has truly been on honor to have known your family and we know you made him proud! Take care.
John, Sandy and family - In reading your father's tribute, I said to myself, what an honor it must have been to be loved by such a fascinating and hard working man. John, I see now where you learned your strong work ethic. Prayers to all of you. We will be thinking of you.
John and Sandy,
My thoughts and prayers are with you and your family. I know how it feels to lose your dad, just think of all the happy times you shared with him.
Peace and blessings to the Dye Family. You will continue to be in our thoughts and prayers. May the sweet memories of your father help you through the most difficult days ahead.
You were the most wonderful father, grandfather and great grandfather there ever was. Everyone who knew you will miss you. Your smiling face and bright blue eyes and you way of making everyone welcome into your home. Even Kim's friend Brenda remembers the time we went to Laughlin and you had your quarters in a tube sock. She thought that was priceless. Well I think your priceless and as much as I wanted to keep you with me forever to keep me grounded I knew I couldn't and I'm glad your not in pain anymore. Not that you ever told us you were! So in your words you would tell me "pick yourself up by your boot straps and move on. You have to move on for the living". You would tell me "we are all appointed a time to die and it's all up to the big man upstairs". He needed you more than us at this time so look down on all of us and keep us safe and have a great time up there with mom and Don and Michelle. I love you
I am sorry to hear of the passing of your father. I hope all the best for your family during this difficult time.
