Dear Shirley,

Please know how sorry we are for the loss of John. He was always so kind to us, and a dear friend to Bob. I can hear him now pulling up in the driveway and reving his engine for Bob to hurry up. John was always there for him, through thick and thin. I, and my boys will always remember him for that, and you for being truly a wonderfully kind person as well.

Our love,

The Pierce Family

I've known the Andrews for over 32 years and remember John always working on cool hot rods. The Andrews have always had "cool" cars that as a kid I can remember drooling over. I am sure God needed an excellent mechanic upstairs and decided it was time for him to go. He will be missed deeply by all who knew him.
Godspeed Mr. Andrews.

John was a Man's Man and was my friend for 25 + years @ The City of L.A.'s No. Ho. Truck Shop where we both worked .

He was a tireless worker and always taught me a new thing daily plus telling me he life growing up in Chicago , Ill.

His love for Shirley never wavered in all the years I knew him .

John , I'll miss you forevermore .

Dear Shirley, I'm sorry for your loss. Know that we are all family over there now at W O W and feel the loss of John.

It's enviable to see a happy and pleasant couple together in marriage after a lengthy time such as you two, enjoying each other.

God Bless you and your family Shirley . Be well, Skip Madsen

Shirley, I am so sorry for John's passing. Nothing I could say can ease the pain, but I hope you find comfort in all the memories and those wonderful trips you two took together. In my short time in California, you both made me feel like I had two great friends. My thoughts and prayers are with you, Johnny, and Lady. With love, Angela

Shirley and John, though we came from the same neighborhood, which made us buddies even though we didn't really know you both well, we got to know you much later life through that connection. The neighborhood bond is a close one and we are sorry we only got together much later in life. You are both good people and Shirley, we are sure you have the most wonderful memories of a wonderful life. John is with God now and He will be taking care of him now. Trust in the Lord.

Dear Shirley and Family,
We were so sad to hear about John's passing. We loved running into John and Lady on our walks with our pooches -- he always made us smile and we really enjoyed talking to him. His memory will continue to bring smiles to our faces. With love Marsha, Jeff, Max and Stokley

God has called John into his service. It is never easy to say good bye but now we celebrate his life and all of the great memories that you have had over the past 55 years you were together. Remember all the moments he was there for you, the smiles, the challenges and the love you both shared. You have loads of memories to fill your heart. We celebrate John's life and he will be there for you always. God bless you and your family. We are here for you.

John would always greet me with his warm smile and a good hand shake with his cold hands. He would often talk about the cold weather in Chicago then make kind remarks about my Norwegian heritage. I will certainly miss cold hands. sincerely, Roy Emberland
