Jon was my longest living friend in Michigan. We enjoyed sailing and racing on the great lakes and outside the US andJon we skied together for many years. Jon was a true friend and I will greatly miss him.

Dear Evelyn and family, I am so very sorry to hear of Jon's passing. Though you and I go back many years through LWV, Bob and Jon knew each other at Dow Corning. I can share your sadness and loss of Jon, because I also had this awful loss in March when Bob passed away. You and your family will be in my thoughts in the coming days.

Many Blessings, Glenna Snider
