Unfortunately, my wife and I were unable to attend either the visitation or John's funeral due to our work schedule. Our prayers and sympathy are with your family. You will always be remembered as a loving and caring family. Marilyn and David Kistler.

I will always be grateful for John giving me a chance to work for him. He taught me so much about carpentry and life. We have lost a good one. Hang in there Brian and Jeff.
