So sorry to hear John passed. John had such a gentle manner. He was kind, he was funny, and just an all around stand up guy. He had a way of making you feel so comfortable. I loved his smile. He spoke of his family often, you could see the love in his eyes. The last we spoke, we had promised to meet and catch up. We were both busy and time got away from us. I teasingly called John hot guy from the time I met him. I will miss you. Fly high and ride free hot guy. I will never forget you. Xoxo

I am so sorry to hear about Johns' passing, I worked with John at Square D, and we became great friends. He rode his motorcycle to my house, and we would go riding together every now and then...John will truly be missed, my prayers to his family!

There is a loss in so many friends and loved ones hearts. That will never heal. For reasons we will never know; How this could happen. The reasons for your departing from all our lives leaves us hurt. Because we could not help you in your last minutes. We will miss your loving ways the way you made every one comfortable and happy to be around your presence. May your soul rest in Gods hands. Thank you for being our friend.

John was like a brother to me. He was my brothers John and Frank Ondrovich, best friend. Our families were neighbors growing up. John and my brothers were always together. If my brothers were home, John was usually there. John and Johnny remained friends through all their shenanigans in high school, and the rest of their lives. My brother Johnny passed away a few years ago and John was by my families side at the funeral service. We all considered him part of our family. He was a wonderful man, father, son and friend. I loved him the same as my brothers. John may you rest in peace with your daughter and my brother Johnny.
