John was in my Rad Tech class at KDMC . He was intelligent, kind, hard working and wickedly funny! Lots of good memories of my time there with him. God bless him, and his family.

I was a student radiology tech at Kings Daughters 40+ years ago, and John was the first person I was assigned to . He was a great teacher. I learned so much from him, especially in surgery. He was so patient with this greenhorn.... He never called me by my first name at all. It was always Bowling when he needed my attention. Even when he became the Chief Rad Tech at OLBH he would address me as Bowling.
Prayers that you find peace and comfort.

My Irish twin,
As far back as I can remember it has been you and me. Our bond was never broken until now. You leave a hole in my heart and soul that will never be filled until I see you again.
I love you more than you could ever imagine.
Your Irish twin
