Having moved from Battle Creek to Grand Rapids in 1957, I still remember my grade school friendship with John from Fremont Elementary and W.K.Kellogg jr. High. Thanks to John Godfrey for posting John's obit on Facebook. I've been in California since 1976, but have fond memories of those simpler times times, growing up in the Midwest.

Ah, the canoe trip! In the drink we went. Warm water but a cold day. Everyone scurried to find us some dry clothes in their cars and put the heat on high! We still laugh about this. We always felt like dufusses on that day, but John never made us feel bad about it. He just chuckled.

I used to spend the night with Cheri and John, to the point I called John " my roomie". I would start the morning having John making me coffee!

I watched my girlfriend fall in love and was literally the first person who saw her engagement ring, and exclaimed my joy for them. What a love story... I'm blessed to know and love "my roomie". Always in my heart.

The entire Schimmel family was our next door neighbor in Battle Creek, Mi. I knew the whole family but was and still is BEST friends with his brother Ross. Lee and myself send out our deepest sympathy to Ross and the entire family. May John Rest in peace.
