Not sure what to say?

Dearest Lois, John and Jennifer: We were honored and blessed to have met John and spent so many afternoons visiting with him and all of you in your front porch. Our hearts go out to you in your time of sorrow. May God bless you and your family.

Words couldnt explain how I feel but working with you from a baby standing on the side of the hole Talking to you till I was the one in the hole pulling out the pipes working for you an my dad you were one hell of a boss an a role model you will always be loved and missed
Alvins son

Always a smile for neighbors. He was always there to help. Will be missed.

John was such a welcoming and gracious member of our neighborhood. We will always remember the wonderful conversations we had outside his home as we met him and Lois on the front porch. He will be greatly missed.

What I knew of John was told to me through the loving words of his daughter Jennifer. She always spoke fondly of her Dad as her rock, her confidant, her hero. Always in the corner of his children and his sweetheart Lois, It was my understanding he was the best of the best, a family man through and through. Please accept our deepest condolences. Love always, Larry Dupkin, Seta and the family!

You were truly my brother by a different mother, and it was great to have you a part of our family. You will be missed but our love will continue. Heaven has gained another kind and worthy soul.

My deepest sympathies go out to the Gaba family

We will miss your humor John, its been a pleasure being your friend for over 55 years

Please accept our deepest sympathies. Keeping you in our prayers. Barb and Peter Morjal
