I am John's Ex-Wife of 18 years and the Mother of his 4 Children , one being deceased.
John was such a wonderful Man with a very kind Heart,,one who loved to travel and see new places and adventures. While together, we traveled a lot with the Air Force and were stationed in several countries for a few years each.
Even tho we went our own ways after 18 years of marriage, we remained friends.
I was devastated to hear of his Illness and his Roller Coaster Ride before the Lord felt he had enough of suffering and took him home to be with him in Heaven.
Now John is with Jesus, his Parents, his Daughter Michelle, his Mother in Law and so many other loved ones! We all wish John to rest In Peace and to be Joyful upon the Lord!!
He will always be in our Hearts and Memories--a special person to think of on a beautiful, blessed day.
May God Be With you All!
