John would stop in and visit Joan and everyone at St Ann's where Joan was a manager. We called him the "can man". Lol

Please know that John and you are in the thoughts and prayers of all the Phi Psi brothers. I live on the west coast so did not attend as many of the post graduate functions that you did. But I have seen many photos of you and John at different Phi Psi gatherings over the years.

For me, a year younger than Q Ball or Spud (take you pick), John was a bigger than life guy who knew how to have fun and enjoy his friends.

Whether it was on the hockey rink (with fellow Grafton player Chico Wentz) or on the intramural football field or simply at Jim & Betty's downtown his laugh was infectious.

Please keep in touch with us going forward and know Q Ball will be greatly missed but not forgotten.

Our condolences and love, Joanie. Uncle John was a guy who I’d see once per year, maybe, but I always felt like I could pick right up where I left off with him. I always found him to be kind, caring, and just an interesting person. I remember golfing with him once on a course he had never played ... and I gave him some bad advice on a shot. He didn’t let me forget it - but in a pleasant way. He’d always needle me about how our Minnesota hockey teams weren’t as good as the teams out east. Lots of memories to cherish . Love from Erik, Alison, Ray and Mac.

My condolences to the family ! I always told John to respect his elders as I am 2 months older than he was - We would laugh and talk about life as well as our golf game - He will be missed by all.

Joanie, Reenie, Bonnie, Bob, Lanny, and Greg and families,
I was so sad to hear of John’s passing. My dad, who passed away November 6,2004, thought highly of John and enjoyed following his high school and college hockey successes! May your great memories of John sustain you at this sad time!
In love and sympathy, Becky Hove Zak

We were shocked to hear that John passed . I had only seen you both once this summer when you were crossing the street in Victor to the Black Diamond. Most sincere condolences from both Barbara and me. I'll always will remember how John made an appointment immediately after my hiring at Birds Eye to "educate" me on Silgan products. I'm sure he will be greatly missed.

Dear Family & Friends of John,
We are with heavy heart as we tell you of a brother/brother-n-law who has passed. John was a guy who loved to laugh & have fun. He was a business man for 40 yrs serving Continental Can Co in Ohio, and the largest food provider, Silgan’s Can Co. in NY. We would chuckle almost every time he came home to ND for a visit as he would ‘clean our cupboards’ of any dented cans! He loved his job and the Clients he served. They loved him.
We recall John at the farm with “The Good Life” - his camper he drove home to ND to see his Parents, family, & friends one summer. He was good about coming back to see everyone. His roots were here. He always wanted Lori to know her “roots”. He was a true ND sentimentalist even if he didn’t want to always show it.
John was a guy who loved people and treasured his moments spent with them. Wether you knew him from by gone days of Hockey, fishing trips, house parties, Golf, Golf cart stops, Family events, Business, or “retirement”, where ever- you know you had a friend in John once you met him.
John usually always carried a camera. Photos were his way of capturing the moment and hangin on to it. We so admired him for his photos. When-ever he would be at an event with us he would always send a few photos back to remind us of the fun had. He took the time to reflect and treasure the memory and that
says a lot about a person. His heart was big. His mouth was too sometimes - his wit could come across rather strong at times but never once did he have us fooled. He was a guy who loved to laugh and appreciated some of the silly jokes told and the smaller things in life.
We were all blessed to know John. His passing is really hard , as we are so far away in miles. Hugs Fam! We would love to be at his celebration of Life in FL. We would love to be able to say “So long”.
We will meet again one day John - what a Glorious celebration it will be!!
RIP John. Love You.
Kathi & Greg
