I went to culinary school with John, we were in the same group. He was the life of the group, always funny and keeping the class going! I'm thankful to Facebook for having the opportunity to reconnect with John, he will be missed. My sympathies to his children and family.

To lose a son, a father, a brother, an uncle, a cousin, a friend, is so sad. Our thoughts are with you during this difficult time.

The McFarlan Family:

My thoughts and prayers are with you.

I knew John to be a great father to Parker & Jacob and a great brother to Mike & Sheila. I always enjoyed listening to his short stories of the boys accomplishments or his brothers adventures! He was truly a great guy and he will be missed by many.

Linda and Mike:

It's always impossible to know what to say at a time like this. I just want you to know that I feel sadness for you. Linda, you were a favorite teacher of my son, Brian Ray. I think he was in your second grade class. Mike, you were a real good friend to Brian.
