Not sure what to say?

Just learned of John's passing. We became good friends while we worked together at the Corte Madera inn almost 30 years ago. There were a group of us who became very close and we had many good times together. Know he will be missed by everyone who knew him. John was one of the nicest people in this entire world. I was sorry we lost contact after I moved to Southern California. You and your family will be in my prayers as you get through this difficult time.


Dear Karen and kids, we were heartbroken to hear the sad news. We will always remember John's great smile, positive attitude, and sense of humor. May God bring you peace during these sad days. With love, the Bryant Family.

I met sweet natured John when he and Mary played as toddlers while their big sisters were busy in their Play Group. They started kindergarten together and will always be one of our special Homestead School family.

Our blessings to his family

In my mind, John is a bright eyed, eager,ebullient nine year old, attending Homestead School in Mill Valley with our son Carter. Then, to our pleasure, his parents brought him and Jenny to live on our road above Muir Woods. There he goes....riding his bike! Mrs. Collins

Dear Karen, Jack, Catherine & Family,

We are heartbroken over John. May God's love shine down on you, sustain you, comfort you & protect you. John is your angel in heaven, always with you & guiding you.

"Do not stand at my grave and weep.
I am not there. I do not sleep.
I am a thousand winds that blow.
I am the diamond glints of snow.
I am the sunlight on ripened grain.
I am the gentle autumn rain.
When you awake in the...

I loved the way he adored the three of you. His smile was so contagious. I remember when we brought Jack home from Muir Woods last summer, he had so many stories of growing up in that area...he just lit up while he shared childhood memories with me. He was full of joy.

So sorry to hear of John's passing - I remember your family with fondness & love. Take care

I'll remember John as a funny and caring dog-lover. I send my deep condolences to his family.

A friend is an angel that carries us through the toughest of times, and the happiest too.

A friend is an angel that watches over us, and lends support when times get tough.

A friend is an angel with a great big heart, who loves and cares for us the way that we are.

My childhood friend Johnny is gone, all our lives are that much better to have known him even if for just a moment.

As much as you were needed and loved, God needed you more.
