Much care to John’s family. My memories of teaching John high school English all include his smile, his sense of humor, and spirit. I am honored to have known him. Miss Woody

My thoughts and prayers of comfort and peace for John's family at this time. Many memorable times with our good friend back in Silverton and the back row of the drive-in movie theater between Turkey and Quitaque. Always smiling and laughing and made us all laugh!

John always had a sweet smile. Condolences to his family. ✝

My heart goes out to Jennifer, and everyone who was lucky enough to know John. We are so deeply sorry for your loss. My daughter practiced with John and his Kaos family quite a few times and despite the fact that she was younger, she was never treated as such. Both coaches taught her so much in just a short time and for that we will be forever grateful. We will never forget John or the impact he had. He was a great man and will be missed by many!

Sorry to hear this sad news. I hadn’t seen John since we graduated high school, but have fond memories of him.
