I am so saddened by this loss for you all. I was out of state and not able to attend this wake. My heartfelt love and prayers go out to you all. I have so many wonderful childhood memories with your family. I hope that as each day passes your memories can ease the pain of your loss. His spirit lives on in each of you.

I truly feel privileged to have known John. It's a shame more people didn't have that chance. John was generous and deeply caring, and he set a shining example for me and everyone else to follow. My sincere sympathies to his family, friends, and associates.

Sally and I extend our deepest sympathy to the Chokolas family at this time of your loss. John was a great neighbor for many years on Overlook Dr. We are vacationing in Florida and will be unable to attend any of your services.

Valerie, Elaine, Linda & Charlene,

I had the good fortune and pleasure to meet dad as he walked by our house on a warm October day, shortly before Halloween. He joked with me about the small lawn mower I was using to take care of a bigger than average yard. I explained to him that I had just recently retired and needed to stay busy while keeping in shape. Dad said that I was too young to retire and yet he could have done so years ago if so moved. When I shared with him that it was time to leave the corporate world behind, he understood yet at the same time was thankful to be in business for himself. This enabled him to keep the drive going to provide for his wonderful wife and four lovely daughters. I now know that this was his priority, while at the same time there was so much more. Dad is one of those extremely special people who touches lives in a very dynamic way. The 15 minutes I spent with him was a blessing and beyond without question. He will resonate with me forever and his parting words of advice for me were "Stay active and you will increase your chances for a long productive life." What a wonderful, saintly, paternal and wholesome father to be blessed with. My wife Susan and I know that he has provided and instilled a wealth of special gifts and strengths to help you heal the way he would want you to. Dad will be the special guardian angel that will enable the whole family to move forward and persevere. Susan and I will hold you all in our prayers day in and day out.

Love and blessings to all.
