Tomorrow will be 2 months that heaven gained an amazing angel.
John is truly an amazing young man and friend. When I meet him years ago he impressed me so much. I admired him at such a young age being so mature man and business man. I remember going to visit him at the hospital. He was getting ready to go in for surgery and he had his laptop in his room and they told him they had to get ready for surgery and he told the nurse she had to wait he was bidding on a machine. Such a giving and caring young man. I'm blessed to have you as a friend
Rest on paradise. Love you man.

Dear JW,
We are so sorry for the heartbreaking news of John's passing. We have been in NC taking care of family. We last saw him at Lowe's and of course he had a big hand shake for me and hug and kiss for Jan. He was smart in business adventures and just a great young man. He went through a lot but I know he loved his Grandpa and family. RIP John. Love Marvin and Jan

I don't really know how to explain how big of a heart John had other than this short story. I met John through a mutual friend right after I had been in trouble with the law and I had nowhere to live at that time. John had overheard me explaining my situation and he said "hey man I got a place for you to sleep. Then he moved me into his house and gave me nice clothes to wear and made sure I had food everyday. Our bond became unbreakable, he was like a big brother looking out for me. Even though we had only known each other for a few month prior to him moving me in, he treated me like I was his own family. We have so many memories together that I will forever cherish. Words alone cannot describe what a heart of gold John truly had. He will forever live on in our hearts and our memories, and will truly be loved and missed always. Fly high buddy

I will always be thankful that I had the opportunity to get to know you and to call you my friend. I will cherish your memory for years to come.
I am attaching a photo of you and Baby Boy, the baby squirrel that you rescued and gave to me. Every time I look at Baby Boy I remember that day like it was yesterday. You had a heart of gold!!
Rest in peace John, you will truly be missed!
