Just saw this and very shocked. I would see him and visit three or four times a year while I recycled cans. :) Bruce worked for him when he had the Motorcycle/Lawn mower repair business. He was such a kind heart and a very hard worker. Very sorry for your loss.

May God be with you all and give you strength.
If a man does not provide for his own family first, he has denied the faith and is worse off than an infidel and an unbeliever...There are few that could outmatch my dad in the above statement from God's Word. Many live to retire, my dad lived to be fruitful. He never was a man of the world, fancy clothes, clubs, etc., just a man that loved his family and believed that Heaven was his home due to and only to the death, burial, and resurrection of Jesus, Son of God, God in the flesh, dad I will see you soon and we will work together throughout eternity.
I am so sorry for your loss, thoughts and prayers to your family!
The Final Salute
“Brothers in Arms”, Military men and women down through the centuries, have traditionally exchanged “Hand Salutes” as a sign of recognition and as a way to render courtesy and respect one to another.
This “Hand Salute” is the last that we shall render to John K. McGuire our “Brother-in-Arms”. To his family it symbolizes the love and respect that we have for John. And to John it is rendered as a symbol of honor and gratitude to thank him for the devoted and selfless service he rendered to his country during the Korean War while serving in the U.S. Air Force. John, we commend you for your honorable service. You are a true patriot, who served with honor and distinction. You upheld the finest qualities of an American patriot warrior: courage, commitment, Generosity, sacrifice, love and devotion to family and country. You were a true friend. We bid you a sad farewell. You will be dearly missed from among our ranks. Be at Ease. Rest in Peace.
On behalf of the 1,261 military veteran Legionnaires of Lowe-McFarlane Post 14 of the American Legion and the 233 veterans of VFW Post 2238 in Shreveport, Louisiana, we extend our sympathies and our condolences to John's family and loved ones.
