John was a great guy to hang out on the patio talking blues drinking a PBR. I worked with him cutting grass and he always would swing the trailer close to the curbs so we would Yell " Swing it wide Jake!" Good times he be missed but never forgotten. See you at the game up above.

To a One of a kind friend you will be sorely missed. I will always remember John standing beside me on the patio with a big smile on his face. Whenever I would go down to the Blues game the first place I would go was to John's corner. Just to stand around and talk. You all are in our thoughts a prayers.

Dear Nancy, JoAnn, and Bob,
I was so saddened to hear about John... I'm so glad that I had been able to see "Little Johnny Nicolay" all 'grown up' over the past few years and catch up on your families. He was kind and thoughtful. I can only extend my prayers sympathies to each of you and hope faith and family help you through.
To Joann, I am sorry I never met you, but Johnny spoke of you with love and warmth. I will keep all of you in my thoughts over the times to come.
