Not sure what to say?

Dianne, How sorry I was to recently learn of John's passing. I was traveling and missed word. John was a good man, fair, honest, humble and giving. He gave to his employees and his community as well as his family. I enjoyed working with him and was delighted to see how well he was doing this summer at our reunion. My thoughts and prayers go out to all of you.


Aaron and I would like to extend our heartfelt condolences to you and your loved ones. John was a wonderful man who did so many great things for others, as I've read here. He was so kind to "follow" us online after we moved away and kept up with our growing family, and always thinking of fun things he could do to bring a smile to our children's faces. I only wish I had told him thank you more than I did. We hope peace and comfort finds you, we'll be thinking...

We wish to extend our sincere condolences on the loss of your loved one, John. He was a great supporter of this community and of Lafayette Urban Ministry. He will be greatly missed. May he rest in peace and may God hold all of you in the palm of His hand.

We met John in 1962 when he wrote the mortgage on our first home in West Lafayette. Twenty years later, our extended families united when our children married, and we soon shared grandchildren. We've known John as a loving, thoughtful, talented father, husband, grandfather, and professional, who gave of himself to his family and community. We were fortunate to share two joyous days with him last May during grandson David's graduation from Duke.

So sorry to learn of John's passing. We were in the same high school class and just recently reconnected via Facebook. My prayers are with his family.

I am so sorry for your loss. I have fond memories of John running the music for the Westview Dames chorus line. I know he will be missed by many. You are in my prayers.

We are so sorry for your loss, I have fond memories of your father growing up as high school friends. Sending love and condolences during this difficult time.
