We are so very sorry to hear of John's passing. My husband and I worked at Kodak also, that's how we met John. John was always very kind and sweet. Had a good sense of humor and I will always remember that great smile of his. RIP friend. Love, Liz & Ed Strehlow

I am so sorry to hear of John's passing. Memories of him go way back to the early '50s when we were in the 5th grade at Lincoln School. His Mom was our "home room mother". We were in the same Greeley High School class of 1958. He was a good man. My prayers for his family.
