Not sure what to say?

When John was HR Manager at BC/BS, he hired me to work with John Q. Adams in the Claims Dept. in 1968. Eventually, John transferred out of HR and into Subscriber/Customer Service and I had the privilege of working directly under him for a period of time. He was a wonderful gentleman in every sense and a great asset to BC/BS and humanity! John, may you rest in peace.

I first met Mr. Wilhelm in 1975. I was seventeen years old and fresh out of high school. Mr. Wilhelm interviewed me and hired me for a microfilm operator position. I stayed at Blue Cross and Blue Shield for 24 years and worked my way through the company, I am know an independent agent and have my own business. Many thanks to Mr. Wilhelm for giving me this opportunity. I know it was all met to be. I appreciate his kindness and willingness to give a young lady a chance.

I am deeply sorry to have learned of John's passing. I first met John when I began working for BC/BS in the early '80's. He was a wonderful person. Please accept my sincere condolences. The family is in my thoughts and prayers. God bless you all.

Our hearts go out to all of you but especially Carolyn & John and "Little" Donnie. We did not have the privilege to knowing John personally, but loved and respected him through the testimony of you three. May you always remember the high standard he set and strive to emulate it. With love Jim and Lilan

I met Mr. Wilhelm in 1968 when I was eighteen years old and fresh out of high school. He took a chance on me and hired me for an accounting position with BCBS of VA. I remember him as being very kind and I always enjoyed talking with him. The chance he took on a shy, young girl led to a long, productive career in accounting. May his family find peace in the love of our Lord during this difficult time.

to all of John's beloved fsmily - Know that you are in the prayers of his church family - he will be missed by all - he wss a wonderful gentleman and served his country, family, church and community with such love. Know that you are surrounded by the love of friends and His love. May you have a real sense of God's presence as you trust Him for gentle comfort and peace.

Condolences from the Forrest family. My dad thought the world of John and enjoyed working with him all those years at BCBS.
