Not sure what to say?

I remember John very fondly. He was always so kind to the young technicians and actors at Grand Rapids Civic Theatre. I met him when Civic was at the Lenord location. I treasure a memory of John at Civic. A storm come thru during a performance of Most Happy Fella and we lost power. The technicians started getting flashlights & candles & John got his guitar. For close to an hour, with the cast surrounding him with candles, John sang wonderful Irish tunes with cast & audience going...

Scotty, Erin and Family: We were out of town so were unable to attend the funeral. We are so sorry to hear of John's passing. He was a wonderful man who was so compassionate and caring to us during our son's unexpected passing. We loved him before that, but even more after. He and you have been in our prayers.

Doc, your family is in my thoughts and prayers. I know you are in a much better place. It was a pleasure to know and work with you. Ed Westhouse KCSD (Ret)

I alway found it very rewarding to work with John. He was so willing to share not only his knowledge but patience with questions from not only myself but the many paramedic student, from Davenport University, I had with me at the ME's office.
It has often been said life if but a journey, that being said, sábháilte sa bhaile, (safe home),John.
