Not sure what to say?

I had the honor of working with John at Hennepin County and while he operated the residence on Park Ave. Whenever I would meet John, one of the first things he would talk about was his concern for the wellbeing of one of his clients. He was the perfect example of what social work is about. What a wonderful legacy he left: enriched lives of the people he touched!! Thank you, John.

So glad to visit with Cousin John at the Peterson family picnic in August. God's Blessings to all of the family during this time of grief.

Thank you for being our Santa Claus at WAVE! Best twinkling eyes & generous spirit ever...

I worked with John at 1800 Chicago for several years. He was a kind and cheerful presence and always had time to help out a new social worker. My condolences to his family and friends. He will be missed by his friends at Hennepin.

I am so sorry to hear of John's passing. I worked with John at 1800 Chicago.

Pam and John- I was so sad to hear of your Dad's passing. I hope the wonderful memories of him will help you through this very difficult time. You are all in my thoughts and prayers.

I am sorry to hear of the passing of John. I worked with John at Hennepin County. He was very well liked and respected by not only other workers but by his clients!

One of the hardest day of my life is today. Even though you are in a better place, I miss your smiling face. Thanks for the all of the fond memories. Joe and I loved going to Texas Roadhouse with you each Saturday. I will think of you whenever we are there. Love you Dad.
