There was never anything but good memories of John. One that stands out is when we had a renewal of vows wedding at our home for John & & his wife Debbie. He was a cherished friend, irreplaceable.

He will always be remembered for his kindness & sense of humor. He will be remembered for the example he was to us, to my son & the children of the Christopher families as well.

RIP John God bless.
