So sorry to hear of John's passing. He was a great mentor to me when he hired me at Sony about 16 years ago. A wonderful man who lived life with passion. Ronika

Dear Erin, Amy, Brian and Nancy,

I am so sorry to hear of your loss. Your father (and husband) was a great man. I will always remember what fun he was to be around when all of us kids were at your home. You have been, and will continue to be, in my thoughts and prayers.

So sorry to Nancy and entire Riordan/Limmer family with the loss of John. What a super guy! We'd always have a nice visit at family gatherings. Such a warm, loving, and funny man--loved his infectious laugh! John will watch and guide you from afar, and his essence will dwell in you forever.

John was an extraordinary friend and neighbor. He touched our lives deeply and in ways it is difficult to describe in words.
Nancy and family - We share your grief in the loss of this wonderful man who was an extrordinary husband and father. Our prayers are with you today and each day in the future. We will be there when you need us.
