My deepest sympathy to the whole family. Grew up across the road from him ,so many memories, like the fun we had putting in the water lines at Mom and Dad's or the time he took my girls for a ride in the backhoe,that made their whole summer. You were one of the good ones Johnny, via con dios.

John will be missed.

So many memories with John and my Dad at John's camp on the river. First snowmachine crash! So much fishing and ice fishing. One weekend when I was young it was just John, Dad and I. They cooked enough fish to feed 10 people. John threatened to hang me upside down in the "shit house" for the night if I didnt eat all the fish! And I'm pretty sure John introduced me to my love of landscaping with a lawn mower as he and I would've mowed the entire feild and shoreline if Annie would've let us!

You will be missed my Friend
