I’ve known John since I was a young girl. He was one of the kindest guys u could ever meet. always had a kind word for someone and always had a smile on his face. My whole family thought the world of John and Vi and their family. The wheelers the Fields and the Hoffers were all like family to us. John will be missed by many. He’s rejoicing now with all his loved ones and with my parents too.

My prayers go out to all of uncle John's immediate family. He will definitely be missed. My uncle John was a kind, gentle God fearing man who dearly loved his family. My fondest memories of uncle John is his humor, and praying over me when I gave my life to Jesus. Uncle John can now be with his beloved wife and many other family members who have gone before him. Love you Uncle John
