I am devastated to learn of John passing away. He was an inspiration to many. I would not have stayed in the Valley had it not been for John, Gary, and Pauline. Now 32 years later....
With fondest memories and sadness in my heart.
John was a great, wise, leader in education, in the church and in the community. We all will miss his wit, his intellect, and his ability to make people feel wanted and appreciated. He was greatly respected! My late wife and I were lucky to have John as both a colleague and as a neighbor. I am saddened that I wasn't able to attend his memorial service for I was out of town. My condolences to Joan and to Leslie .
John was a wonderful person- thoughtful, kind, and smart. He inspired many young people throughout his years as an educator. I'm lucky to have known him. Joan, you and your family are in my thoughts and prayers.
Our deepest sympathy to you and your family upon the loss of John. We enjoyed very much getting acquainted with him at the reunions.

Joan sorry for your families loss. John now has received what we are all working towards his eternal reward. Blessings
My condolences to you and Leslie on the passing of John. He was a very respected and Godly man, and I looked up to him a great deal. I am saddened that I will be unable to attend his memorial service, as I will be flying back from San Diego at the time of the service. Please know that you and Leslie are in my thoughts.
You just couldn't help but like John the minute you met him. It was a privilege to have had him as a friend. We will miss his keen mind and sharp wit. Ned and Julie Woodall
