I worked with John at Seaphire International. He was truly inspirational and I always think of him with admiration and respect. I remember his words of wisdom well and still find opportunities to quote them to others today. I am so glad he was a part of my life. Thank you John!

My condolences to the family of Mr. John G. Sperling,

Always remember the comforting words of King Solomon 'A good name is better than good oil, and the day of death is better than the day of birth' (Ecclesiastes 7:1). Mr. Sperling spent a lifetime making a good name for himself.  He will forever be remembered for his desire to assist those of us in advanced years by providing online education.  His love for humanity. May his accomplishments and fine reputation also be written in God's "book of remembrance” the most important book of all! Malachi 3:16.

May you find comfort and peace.

John Sperling organized California's first statewide professors of higher education, a part of the California Federation of Teachers, and then he ran into fireman who wanted a college a

For God is not unrighteous so as to forget your work and the love you showed for his name by ministering and continuing to minister to the holy ones (Hebrews 6:10). John will never be forgotten for all the work he did for a education community and especially those encouraged and inspired in this persons' care. May God continue to strengthen the family and friends in these “times hard to deal with” (2Tim 3:1), especially without a beloved one such as John G. Sperling.
