Mr. John Gettel was my 6th grade teacher at Jennings Lodge. He was kind, smart, attentive and supportive - always with a touch of humor when needed. As my oldest brother knew John well during their college & teaching years, John entrusted me to take care of the kids on the occasions they went out during the late day or evening. He/they always made sure I had everything needed to babysit those cuties! I will always remember John & his family with great fondness & admiration. I hope to attend the memorial and greet the kids again - it was a special time in my life to be able to care for them all.

John Gettel was my 6th grade teacher at Jennings Lodge. Here is our class photo, one that I'll treasure forever. I also babysat his kids, in their house on River Road, just south of Inez's & kitty-corner from the school itself. I would love to hear from (and see!) the kids, so will attempt to attend the memorial. My sincerest condolences - he was one of the very best.

My condolences to the Gettel Family. I hope that you are reminded of so many good memories of your father at this time. Thinking of you all.

Mr. John Gettel was my 5th grade teacher. I truly admired him. He taught me the game of basketball and how to be a young gentleman, furthermore how to be responsible and accountable. As I moved up in grades at Sunset Elementary, my home-room teacher, was his uncle, Harold Gettel. Both my older sisters and myself were blessed and grateful to both the Gettel men, who naturally were excellent public elementary educators.
John Gettel and his uncle Harold will never be forgotten! In Sympathy, Capt. Michael R. Simonsen
