He was a good friend to my dad in the last years of his life. He did many things for dad that I wasn't able to do.

JJ was a dedicated Tiger fan! He thrived on the success of VHS athletics. He would often sit behind the bench during our basketball games and I always knew I could count on him to look at me with a smile and a quick "Come on girls, here we go!". His support throughout the seasons will always be remembered. He was such a loving and caring individual. My thoughts and prayers are with JJ's family.

JJ is classmate and a good friend! He is a gentle person who has great capacity for his friends and the community. I remember him as President of Class of 1954 Versailles HS. I will miss him and will remember all the good times at VHS. I will think of him often!

I first met JJ when he worked at Service Beauty. He always remembered my name when I stopped by. Later our paths crossed laer at Brethren Retirement where he faithfully visited his Mother and took care of her. He was a very thoughtful man. My sympathy to his family. Janet Ashworth (Greenville)

We loved our time with J.J.! He SO enjoyed all Tigerball! We traveled with him to girl's basketball tournaments and his excitement was contagious. What a great guy, he will be missed and remembered fondly.
