John was my best friend, his face lite up everytime I came to visit, we had some great conversations and I wont forget all the insights of life and the wisdom that he shared. John is the kindest and caring person you will ever know. John loves puzzles and life was like a puzzle to him, he certainly made sure our lives fit perfectly together as well, I will miss you my friend now, but I cant wait to see you soon again! I love you John.

The Clark Family lived just down the road from us on Koons Road growing up. I was five years old the first time I met Amy Clark and we all shared so many fun times outside/barn clubhouse and just long Summer days! So many wonderful memories of this dear family! Mr. Clark always so calm, focused, and quiet keeping things running for this home and family. What a great provider of all the needs/love of this family! It was great to share our faith as well. Blessings to you all at this most difficult time. Our hearts and prayers are with you!
