John was a very good friend/brother of mine when I started at Carlton Fields, PA at the age of 19 years old. I will always cherish the fun times we had at work and hanging out with our co-workers. Best times of my life. I was blessed to be able to have met such a wonderful and giving person. He will always be in all of our hearts. My love goes out to Brian and his family.

John was my work husband. We would laugh at the office and he made days better. I will miss laughing and chatting with him and having soulful conversations. I’m happy I was able to spend time with him during his last months. He will be missed by so many people. Rest easy my friend and we will laugh together again.
Love you!

John, I am gonna miss you so much. I still can't believe you are gone. You have been with my family for so many years and there are so many great memories I will forever cherish. I remember when you, Brian and I would go to the clubs and then hit up steak n shake. Or us all walking around bayshore with the dogs. So many good memories. I know you are no longer in pain. I know you will be watching over us all. Until we meet again, rest in peace. Love you, Eric Turner

Johnny,

The love shared by you and your sister Amy was something special to witness. She spoke with you everyday, multiple times a day sometimes, and I know your fight with cancer was her fight too. She updated me on your talks, your progress, and your set backs. Her heart broke with every setback and grew with every bit of good news you received. Since my love for your sister began over 27 years ago, if her heart was sad so was mine and when she was encouraged by good news so was mine. I know her heart is broken now as well as your nieces and so is mine. You were loved by so many as is evident by the messages left. Our only comfort is knowing you are in a better place because you lived your life and treated people kindly. You can rest now and be pain free and be with those who passed before you and have been waiting for you. Please look in on us from time to time and watch over us. I know you will be busy watching over the many people you cared for and especially Brian. Don't worry about him, we will always take care of him in your absence. My thoughts of you will always be a soft spoken, mild and polite man who loved others with all his heart. The best a man can do in life is leave a positive effect on everyone they touched and you did that. I will forever be grateful for the love and effect you had for the ones I love.

What a beautiful remembrance! John's obituary and the many sweet photos of his life illustrate how much he loved and was loved. There can be no better memorial.

I wish I had had the opportunity to know John better as an adult.

Royce and I send our condolences.

Love, Trudy

My condolences on John’s passing. We met when he was a paralegal at Fowler White. He had a wonderful sense of humor and a very kind heart. He is missed.

My Uncle John, you were the first person to take me on a road trip to Maine. You showed me New York City and Bar Harbor. Your cat Natasha hated me as a little girl, but I remember one time you were tickling me and making me laugh so hard she came and attacked you trying to protect me. I will always remember all the great memories you have given me. You were almost exactly 20 years older than me and this birthday will be a sad one as I will celebrate my 34th but you will not be celebrating your 54th. I know that it was your time and you that God called you home to keep you from going through anymore pain and suffering. I also know that it doesn't make missing you any easier. You were an honest man, always gave it to me straight and that is why I always valued your advice and opinions. You loved me and my boys unconditionally. You were there for every birthday and holidays. I wonder what they will be like now? I know you will be there in spirit and that puts me at ease. I will always cherish the time we had together and never forget your loving nature. Thank you for being my Uncle and being present in my life.

My heart goes out to John’s sister’s Tammie and Amy and all of his loved ones. I knew John when we were teenagers and he was always the kindest young man! I enjoyed many good times and feel so blessed that that you were once a part of my life. You all will be in my hearts and prayers.

I remember John when Uncle Leon and Aunt Phyllis got married, we called him 'John-John' then. He was every part a cousin as the rest of us are. Though we did not get to see each other often we were in touch on Facebook. He was a good brother to Tammy and Amy and will be missed by many.
You are no longer in pain John and back with all our loved ones gone now. We will miss you and we will one day see you again.
To Tammy, Amy, Lisa, Lynn and Rick we send our love and prayers.
Love and Hugs, Deby and Nick Lawrenchuk

What can I say? You will always be that Baby Brother that followed me around, the 12yr old who I got drunk-like any good older sister does- , the young man following his own dreams and finding them in Brian, to the strong fighting brother I admire. We went thru some times together and I will continue to hold you in my heart through out my adventures till I see you again. Your amongst the stars now . Love you, Lisa
