I am so sorry for the loss of your father. I just learned of your mothers passing also. I worked with your mom at Harrison Township when she was the Twp Clerk. I also live out on the pointe and your mom and dad were great people and they will be missed. Love the memory photos you have posted. If it weren’t for Corvid-19, I would have come to the funeral home to say my goodbyes.

John was a great friend, colleague and mentor. He hired me into Chrysler Corporation at Huber Foundry back in 1977. I worked with John over the next 30 years or so, until he retired from Chrysler. He taught me a lot about safety and health and dealing with the UAW Leadership. He was honest and had integrity. He will be truly missed.

Aimee & Angie,
I am so sorry for your loss. Losing both parents in such a short time must be devastating, but yes, they are together once again.
I will not be able to visit.
Please know that my thoughts & prayers are with you and your brothers.
Love to you both.

My condolences. I wasn't informed about Carols passing until after her service. Unfortunately, I can't make it to Johns. They were great people and are together again. Prayers to you all. LauraLee
