I never got a chance to talk much with John one on one. However, I did realized how pleasant and special he was to his great friend, Russell Dearing. I always liked his smile and his friendly attitude.

He now gets a chance to share that smile with our Heavenly Father.
May God bless Debbi and the rest of his family.

I enjoyed many a Sunday School class and fellowship with John. John, Fred Thomas, Russell Dearing and myself enjoyed many a burger at the InterUrban on many Thursday nights. I will miss John.
