John was a unique individual. I worked alongside him and for him. His glass was never half full, rather overflowing. His testimony spoke of his faith and love. His business sense was providing a service above and beyond for the needs of the client. He was rich in confidence, ability and dedication. His vision was over the horizon.
The commitment in his life was unwavering to his faith, his family, the service to church and the plumbing client.
God has brought one of his best home.
Please, Lord, Bless his entire family.

I am glad I was visiting my son the day you passed and got to shake your hand one last time. John you were always a good guy that spoke very highly of your girls and wife. I remember the stories you'd tell Ian and I of you being a chef up north and the fancy meals you would talk about serving. You'll be missed greatly.

To your family, I offer my deepest condolences and continued prayers for peace and comfort during this devastating time. I am sorry I couldn't be there in person to show my respect today but I know you'll be flying high with the angels my friend. Rest in peace.

My wife and I want to offer our deepest, heartfelt condolences to your family.
I did not know Mr. White formally, but I will be forever linked with him by what I believe to be a divine appointment. I witnessed the accident and made the 911 call.
My wife and I wanted to share with your family that we have been, and will continue to pray for you. We also have many of our friends and our church small group praying for you. Our pray is that " the peace of God which passes all understanding will guard your hearts and minds in Christ Jesus our Lord " .
I also want you to know that I am sharing this incident with as many people as possible to let them know that we are never guaranteed the next moment in the belief that God will use it to bring someone to Christ.
Yours in Christ,
Mary and Darrell Vaughn

John was one of the best managers I've ever worked for. He was always helpful, always looking out for his employees and always there for us. He carried this positive attitude when he started his own company. I know he was an awesome dad because he was always talking about his activities with his daughters . John my friend, you will be greatly missed. My prayers are with your loved ones.

John was an excellent plumber, honorable, and trustworthy. He actually did a bathroom addition in our basement which we still love to this day.
I am sorry for the family's loss. He will be missed. May he rest in peace.
