To Johns Family:

I am just now hearing of John’s passing and I am shocked and saddened. My condolences to his family. John was the Director at the Quintiles KC site where I accepted my first job out of graduate school as a formulator. I remember him as a smart, warm, caring person and an excellent leader. He will be truly missed.

I met John when I started at Quintiles and learned a great deal from him. I'll always remember a business trip we took to Boston and dinner at Radius with Rafael and Jim. After leaving for SLC, I was lucky enough to be able to continue to meet up during trips there. It was always great to catch up and reminisce about our time together and the friends we shared in KC. Most memorable were our discussions of Rachael and our two Graces.
Our last visit was a week before the move back to KC - such an exciting time full of hope for a new adventure.
Rest well my friend - you are loved and will be missed...

I knew John for many years and consider him a good friend. I remember playing softball and basketball in the Marion league. Golfing and having a great time. I gave him my used lawnmower and one day it caught on fire; the way he told the story was so hilarious. So many memories, John will be missed. God be with your family as they grieve the loss of their dad.

Rachael and Grace,
I am so sorry for both you girls losing your father. It was a shock to hear about John's passing. We worked together at Quintiles for several years and always kept in touch since then as we changed jobs, moves and updates on our families.
John was a great man, friend and father. He will be deeply missed.

It has taken me a bit to write this. John and I started at Marion about two weeks apart and over the years we basically grew up together. He was my boss for a bit, but more than that he was my friend. He was a wonderful person, but I know I don't have to tell you girls that. Please accept my condolences and know that I will continue to pray for you.
