Not sure what to say?

I remember Mr. Bacon as my route manager when I was a Flint Journal paper boy back in 1963. I always thought he was a very nice man and was always ready to help me out if I had a problem. Sounds like he had a very exciting life.

Very fond memories of your dad. Sorry for your loss.

My condolences to the entire Bacon Family,in the loss of your dad,and grandpa,he was a great man,mentor, and WW11 Veteran.
I owe him my 35 year career at the Flint Journal.
In 1968 I was delivering Coca Cola to The Flint Journal,and I always gave John an ice cold Coke. He knew I was a USAF veteran,1962-66,Jet Fighter Crew Chief.One day he asked me if I was interested in an apprenticeship,on the GI Bill,as a machine repairer/operator,in the production dept.

Johnny Bacon an American Patriot World War11 Navy combat veteran, my mentor, my hero and best friend for 60 years.
Thanks to your wonderful daughter Debbie, and great son Norman (Butch) you got your final wish to stay in your home until the end. 94 years John, you had a great run buddy. Love ya forever

John was a wonderful guy. I will miss seeing him, having a cocktail by the pool, listening to music and his stories when I'm on the island. I'm sorry I missed his birthday this year. His party was always a great celebration.

I have not seen John in many years, and I am so sorry to hear of his passing. I am the daughter of his mother's sister, Ruth Goddard. I have fond memories oh 'Jack and Irene' when they would visit my folks or attend family reunions on the old Barnhart farm (which is still in the family.) I remember both of you as well as we are not too far apart in age. My thoughts are with you, Debbie and Butch as you face the pain of losing your final parent. My condolences.
