John was a frequent visitor here back in his last high school years...friend of my daughter, Susan. He was a friendly and respectful young man; I remember his old white truck and the times we spent working on it here in my garage. We were very sorry to hear of his passing; our prayers are with him and his in the Lord, for one day we will all be together, again!

You have no idea at the sheer devastation your transition has caused for us ALL. I know God only wants the best. We love you, but He loves you most!! I thank Him for lending you to me as my younger brother.

You were a truly remarkable man and a light for all you encountered. We are all better people because of YOU!! Your zeal for life and love of God, Our Savior Jesus Christ, and family were unmatched. We’ll keep Megan, Lillie, and Brax close.

As I close, please just smile down on us. I know we’re ALL in good hands. You made this world a better place. THANK YOU!!

J R you were the only one that I truly called and considered my brother and best friend, you and your family was always there for me. You helped me become the person I am today, you knew me better than I knew myself. You could always draw people to you no matter where you were and make them feel good no matter what they was going through in life. You are a very special person and a awesome dad that no one can ever replace, you have had a glow about since 5th grade. I will never forget all the memories we had and the fun crazy stuff we used to get into.
You have always had a special place in my heart and you always will, you and your family.
I am truly honored to have known the great wild person you were for as long as I have, you are truly a one of a kind person.
You will be greatly missed "My Brother" ✝️
