Not sure what to say?

You have our deepest sympathies in the loss of John and, of course, dear Minki. May their spirits live on in our lives and on and on in the lives of all others, like us, who knew and loved them.

My husband and I extend our sincere sympathy to the Bischoff family in the loss of both your father and mother. We met and spent time with them in Port St Joe, FL during many winters. We treasure those memories. May God's everlasting love for you and fond family memories be of comfort to you as you grieve this loss. Mary Ann and Ken Vanden Berg Grand Rapids, MI

On behalf of myself and all the members and friends of First Presbyterian Church, Port St Joe, Florida, we extend our deepest sympathy to all of John's family and friends. John and Minki spent many winter months among us. Several years ago we discovered a previously unknown (to us)skill and enthusiasm: John loved making pancakes. When I think of John, one of my images is of John in the church kitchen covered with flour and pancake batter. Another memory for me as his sometime pastor is...

What a friendship many of us had with John Stuart Bischoff who we fondly called BUSSY. I could write a book about the many
experiences shared with John. To put this in perspective we went

Lake Sharbot in Canada for fishing, also...

I could write a novel about the numerous experiences that John and I shared together over many years. To put this in perspective

Fraternity ( Phi Delta Theta ) , spent a summer as counselors at a boys camp in Maine, assembled distillation columns over many hours and of course we went to John's cottage on Lake Sharbot in Canada numerous...

Love and prayers to all the family. There were many gatherings with the Bischoff family over the years.
Love, Ann Stoddart Young

I have such special memories of working with John on NACS projects. He was a first-class man; very smart and talented and then there was that infectious laugh. He was a great mentor and friend. The college bookstore industry has lost a great leader and friend.

We will miss his humor, the "tell it like it is", and most of all his friendship. We will miss having lunch and dinner with him when in State College. Our deepest sympathy to the family.

Dear Diane: Please share our deepest sympathy with your siblings and your extended family. Your Mother and Father will be sadly missed by those that loved them. Their Florida family will never forget the good times that we shared. Thank you for contacting us. Hugs to all.
