As your family grieves your loss I hope you'll see John in the words of this poem called: "Success."

He has achieved success who has lived well, laughed often and loved much;
Who has enjoyed the trust of women, the respect of intelligent men and the love of little children;
Who has filled his niche and accomplished his task;
Who has left the world better than he found it;
Who has never lacked appreciation of God's beauty or failed to express it;
Who has always looked for the best in others and given them the best he had.
His life was an inspiration;
His memory a benediction.

Perhaps your greatest gift is the wonderful family that you loved and adored unconditionally. You will be sadly missed John. You leave behind a most remarkable loving family of children, grandchildren and friends who loved you more than you probably knew. Your voice and laughter will echo through the mountains of Moody Hollow that you had come to enjoy so much over the years. Love and Light.

Superpop, as the name states you were an extraordinary man. You will be remembered as a man who had a great love for his family. A man with a sense of humor that would keep us laughing.
As we look upon the legacy you left behind we will be reminded of the man who built this "Super" family with love, compassion, integrity and pride.
You will be missed beyond words but your memory will remain alive in your children and their children.

Steve and I are honored to have known you.

As Heaven welcomes you with open arms we salute you farewell until we meet again.
