I’m so sorry to hear about John’s passing.He was a wonderful man and friend.He will deeply be missed at River City Health Club.He found out that I enjoyed eating sweet potatoes.He took the time and planted a whole bunch of sweet potatoes one year for me at his home.Then when it was time to dig them up. We took them to River City health club and shared them with all our friends.I’ll will really miss him in my RPM class. He was there every Tuesday in the back room riding his bike as fast as he could.He had a laugh that would brighten up the room.Sure going to miss him.

Please accept our sincere sympathies on the passing of your brother John. John and Rodger went to school together. Years later at a class reunion here was John whom I had known from St. Peter's. I always liked talking with him first thing on Sunday mornings. He will be deeply missed. I also loved watching him on the chain gang at the football games. Our family attended FHS and thus we saw John a lot!

John was such a lovely man. I looked forward, each Sunday, to his greeting when I entered the church. He was dedicated to his bell ringing duties. Our church family will miss him dearly.
