John and his grandson watching the parade.

John was the real deal--A hero. He was the BEST MAN at our wedding and will always be the BEST MAN in our hearts.

John was part of an incredible generation of men. As a child, I remember him as kind, funny and warm toward me and my siblings when he and Delphine visited our parents Ruth and Al Bremer. He was one of a kind and will be missed.

John had a good life. . He was loved by many especially the Johnson family. He has found his peace. Thanks be to God.
