My Uncle Johnny had a unique gift of making you feel like you belonged. Every summer while I was growing up I spent the summers with him and Aunt Kathy. I always felt like I was his daughter and just not his niece. He always showed me the love I needed that I didn't get from my father and for that I will always be thankful. Uncle Johnny you will be missed. Rest in Peace and see you later. 😢💕

I worked for John-L several years back. He taught me several things over the years I was employed by him. He was an amazing man. I enjoyed working for him he honestly treated me as if I was family. Thank you John-L for everything that you taught me and for making me feel like I was part of your family

John-L
I will always remember you’re love of Country and of my family. You were always there to tell a story, teach from example or offer a kind word. When my family needed you most you were there. Go rest high on that mountain and sit and have more wonderful conversations with Mark. You will forever be missed.

Many years of good memories. John-L would stop and take me & kids to supper when in Bay Area in the 80s and then spent a few Easters with him and family at the ranch. Those holiday trips were made so special by family. John-L was one of dad's favorite cousins and he had lots of good memories that he shared with us. We will carry all of you in our hearts and prayers.

my dear sweet brother, I don't know how to say good-bye so I will say until we meet again. We shared 78 years together and left each other with many memories to reflect on. You were my hero through the years of doing business with you and you always gave me the long end of the stick. I will miss you every day of my life and pray you are with our love ones who have gone before.

Thanks for the memories and I want you to go rest high on that mountain.

Love you, Sis
