I will miss you dear brother. There are so memories growing up together. Singing duets in church as kids, singing Swiss songs to our parents friend(for money). We always watched each others backs when we were on our church road trips. You were always watching out for me. I will miss you , being retired we had more time to get together. I know you are with Mom and Dad and brother Ernie. Love you.

I had the pleasure of working with John for many years, on many cutting edge life saving technologies.

John always had a unique perspective to add to any new opportunity or challenge and was the person I would call on when needing to be grounded in our engineering practices.

You will missed sir!

It was a privilege to be a friend and colleague of John's. He was a very fine fellow, and an excellent engineer

In the beginning it was just John and I - starting a new office. John was my right hand for such a long time. Without his support I would not be where I am today.

Thank you, John for every moment we shared working and laughing.
