I remember John well from our days in Mr. Fariello's art class at Sayre High School, but he is best remembered by me for his solid work as vocalist for the rock band Zasu Pitts. I hope there's a place in heaven where you and Charlie Garrison are jamming together again. If any family members read this, and are willing to part with it, I would love to acquire some of John's artwork. If possible, please call me at (717)783-9900.
Great obit, John. I only learned you were gone when I read your grandmother's obit this morning.

I am saddened to hear of John's passing. I met John at the Art Institute of Pittsburgh. I was impressed with him then and even more so now. My condolences to his family.

What a wonderful tribute this guest book is to a man who touched so many lives, even those who never met you. I regret not having been in touch over the years, but will always cherish the time we spent growing up in Sayre. What I remember most is your incredibly infectious sense of humor, but I see now that even that is surpassed by your courage. What wonderful traits to pass on to your children. My thoughts are with you and your family. God bless you John Lee, and keep'em laughing!

Dear Lathrop Family, so sorry to hear of your loss. I knew John from high school, ever commanding presence not just due to his giant height, but his giant personality. Truly one of a kind.

John was my art director and friend at Keystone Printing. As I moved on and eventually became an art director myself, I would often quote John and impart the lessons I learned from him. To this day I still consider him on of the most influential people in my life. He was a great boss and a better friend. Reading his obituary reminded me of how John always used humor and a sharp wit to deal with every situation. My deepest sympathy to you Frannie, and your family.

Franny,
Although I worked with John years ago, I didn't really get to know him until these past 9 years. He was so devoted to you and the children and he spoke of you all with such admiration. "God didn't promise days without pain, laughter without sorrow, or sun without rain. But He did Promise strength for the day, comfort for the tears, and light for the way". Comfort and peace to all of you.
