Not sure what to say?

The two years spent working for and with John at Jim Bridger were two of my best years at Pacific. John taught by example and was one of the finest men I have had the good fortune to work with. My wife and I fondly remember the good times skiing with John and Catherine.

John was my first manager after graduation and was a great teacher. I always appreciated his dedication to our profession and guiding young souls to achieve their greatness. May your rest in peace.

It was on the mourn
That I saw a ship a sailing
The sea was calm
The winds were fair
John was young
And he was at the rail
With shipmates once again.---rs

So sorry to hear that John passed away. I worked with him on many projects during my time with Pacific Power & Light. He was a terrific boss with a great personality, so funny, loved to gag you. He will be missed. My thoughts are with you and the family.

Catherine, I’m so sad to know about John’s passing. I don’t know if you know that I lost Shirley on April 4th. Losing a lifelong mate at this point in our lives is extremely difficult, I’m sure you agree. My memories of all of us keep flooding my brain: our camping trips at Lomolo lake and in more recent times our trips to Lincoln City, precious memories that they are. I first knew John as a freshman at OSU. I would be pleased to chat with you by phone or email if you would send your number...

Many great memories of John with Pacific Power and Light while working together on Power Projects. John was a man of integrity and high values. He will certainly be missed and remembered.

i will miss John!! He was such a gracious and fun person to talk to. We had several great talks about our family, and the different adventures there was.Love!!! Karen (Christensen) Ropar
