There are no words that that truly describe what you were to me…..for 15 years you where a friend a big brother a role model. A shoulder to lean on, a pick me up when I was at my lowest. A great listener an old school gentleman .and you have played a big hand in who I am today. It was an honor knowing you. I will miss you and carry you with me all my life. I am truly sorry I was not there for you when you needed me.

We were blessed to have John in our lives, and we can only attempt to salve this loss with happy memories of our time as workmates and friends. John was a wonderful person and we miss him dearly - condolences and prayers for Viv, his kids and family.

John, I've sat here and looked at this blank screen for over 45 minutes trying to put in words what you meant to me.
You were always my angel by making sure I was in a cab & would leave $20 without me knowing. Just by looking at my face you could tell I had a bad day, and say something to make me smile. You were soooo giving that you would give me the shirt off your back.

My friend, I hope you have found that place you were looking for.

I love you, and WILL never forget you.

John, my fondest memory was when we took cousin Rob's VW Rabbit to Poplar Creek for the New Order concert when we were 15. Driving a stick-shift without a Driver's License defines how care-free and fearless we were as kids. That defined your personality and what you were willing to do as a friend. I will never forget all the times we spent laughing and sharing unforgettable moments together. I will miss you.

My condolences to John's immediate family. It is my truest hope that the future brings with it peace and understanding to you all.

I met John many years ago through great friends and that is exactly what he instantly became, a great friend. Every time I saw or ran into John, he truly was like a breath of fresh air. We shared good talks. He listened and laughed... with that contagious laugh of his. There was absolutely no way one could not smile while being around him. So every time I think of you, John, I will smile. I am forever grateful to you for this gift.

Rest in peace, good friend.
