Dear Peg and Family,KesEf

I am Elaine (Bells) sister, Julie. I know if she was still with us, she would have sent her sincere sympathy to you and your family. She always spoke so fondly of you and John and enjoyed sharing Christmas cards throughout the years.
Our Entire Bell family from Cold Spring has followed John and his career while at St. Johns. He has left such a wonderful legacy! And most importantly he was such a good man!!!

We have stayed connected with St. Johns through the years through Pete and Joyce Cheeley. Joyce is my husband Bobs sister.

May care and concern of all those close to you get you through this time.

Our Sympathy.
Bob and Julie(Bell)Manuel

PS: My sister Barb ((Bell) Walz also sends her sympathy.

My dad, Frank Farrington, met John when he first came to St. Cloud. Dad was Sports Editor at the St. Cloud Times at the time and he and Dad became good friends. We actually had a good visit with John at St. John's when Dad was 100 in 2008. John will always be legendary at St. John's. He was a great coach, a great friend, and a truly "Good" man. Peggy was in nurse's training when I was in xray tech training. We had a "Religion" class with Fr. Riley together. Dad told me that John asked his advice about getting married when he was just beginning his coaching job. Dad told him it would be a big plus to be married! My love and hugs are with Peg and the family. I am so sorry we can't get to St. John's for the funeral, but know that you are in our hearts and prayers! Bev Farrington Chirhart My husband, Duane sends his love too!

Want to send my prayers and thoughts on the loss of John. He was a wonderful man and gave so much himself to others. A special prayer for you, John, we shared a great January Term in Europe oh though many years ago. have periodically revisited the pictures from the trip. You share stories of your father which show ed the love and respect you had for him.
Again, my prayers and thoughts go out to the entire family.

I never met him, but he was the greatest football coach ever! You could see it in the he treated his team. His kindness showed inside and out.

Please know you are all in our thoughts and prayers. May you find comfort from God. Your husband /dad/grandpa/friend will be in your heart forever.

He will be missed.
