I am so very sorry to hear of the passing of John. When I was working and I would visit the office, I felt like I was visiting family. John was so kind, personable and fun. I would chat with Jo Ann, his father and occasionally the children Jackie and John. My heart goes out to the family but I know that there is a great big teddy bear angel floating in the clouds looking down on us and smiling. God bless you all.

We laughed, we talked, we played, we were classmates, we were friends and most of all - we became family! We became heart to heart; soul to soul and maintained a joyous relationship throughout the many years! John will remain in my heart and thoughts forever! When John acented to the Heavens, our Lord welcomed a very special angel! John will never be forgotten; but will always reminds us to respect our fellow friends, to love our families and to always have Love and Hope in our hearts. Bless you, my dear friends. Our memories will live forever.

Our life is all about Memories of our Family and friends and things we did through our life that mattered.
I remember John From High School and saw him recently at our Class Reunion.
We were on the Robinson Tennis team together in High school.
I have a photo of that.

I pray that your next journey will be a blessed one. God Bless your soul my old friend. Peace be with your family and full of love and faith.

JoAnn and family,
My heart goes out to each of you. Your family and this world has lost an incredible man, husband, father and mentor. John always had a quick wit and lived each day with joy and love. An inspiration to many, he was loyal beyond words, laughed as often as he could, and desperately loved his church, his faith, his family and mankind. Not to mention, a Knight for Life and an avid Gator. He will be missed by each of us who had the pleasure to know him.

I was blessed to have graduated from Robinson with John and to have also gone to church with John and Joann at Manhattan Baptist. I always appreciated John's testimony and love for our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ. John was certainly a man of God and what a wonderful example he was to his family, friends, brothers and sisters in Christ, as well as those he came into contact with. We will miss John and will look forward to seeing him again in Heaven. Prayers of comfort to Joann and family, and know that we will have a great reunion in Heaven one glorious day.

John and I went to Robinson together, and he was a great organizer of our reunion. He managed my apts and when it came time to sell them he managed my Ex-husband. He was a funny man and he will be missed greatly. My prayers go out to Joann and family. May God bring you peace ln your hours of need. Peace be with you my friend.
