John was my neighbor in Skowhegan for years. He was one of the nicest people I’ve known. I would often hear John laughing from across the road and would later learn he was laughing at my son doing god only knows what. John had a heart of gold. Although it’s been a long time since I have seen him, I thought of him often. He will be very sadly missed by many. Rest In Peace John.

Even though we lost touch after camping, the many fond memories are still with us. Those were the good old days with John, Terri and family camping with us and making friends who still ask about the Webbers. John was the founder of the feast and head cook. It is in loving friendship that we express our deepest sympathy to all of you especially Terri and Nate who we remember with his buddy John.

Though I have no memories of John other than this kindergarten photo I thought you might appreciate it taken oh so many years ago in Mrs. Libby’s class at the Hartland Consolidated School.
I am sorry for your loss— cling to your memories.

Teresa and 'big' john lived across the street (around the block) from my parents, Harry & Vicki Smith, back in the day when they lived in Skowhegan. I LOVED going over to their house and visit. They were such good friends to my parents. Big John will definitely be missed.

I met John several times when I was visiting Carol. He and Terry invited me for dinner and we had such a great visit. I am so sorry to hear of his passing. You are all in my prayers.

John was most always a great big teddy bear to work for. He had his moments of outbursts that could be heard throughout the workroom floor. He always meant well and one could always go to him with any issue. He helped me through some rough times medically when I couldn't walk. I have missed his friendship over the last few years. He will be remembered fondly forever. Prayers to the family.
