My wife Kathy and I wish to express our deepest condolences to all of John's family. May you find strength in sharing memories of John's life. I will always fondly recall the friendship that developed growing up. Memories of bike rides to lake Michigan to go swimming. The years in scouting, even camping in the front yard of his house on Cornelia. No matter the reason for separation memories will allow John to live forever.
