One of my favourite memories of John was him sitting in his room, on the edge of his bed playing his guitar. Sharing many dinners between John, Simon, mom and I, telling us jokes and making us laugh. His humour will never be forgotten. John was a friend of mine and will be missed by many, Rest In Peace my friend.

John was my uncle...and although we were never extremely close the times I do remember are those of laughter and happiness. He would always have a joke in any situation and truly just had a big heart and always made time for everyone. I know my mom loved her brother dearly and they often had many of calls many of which made my mom extremely happy. I saddened by the loss of John but I know that you are in a better place now looking down on all of us and resting easy!

Love your Nephew,
George

John was my stepdad, and he was the only father I knew in my life. When he married my mom, he accepted me as well, and raised me alongside my brother and sister for many years. After I moved back to the US and became older, we weren't in each other's lives as much, but I will always appreciate that he opened his heart to me when he did and that he tried to provide me with the Dad that every little kids needs in their life. He also gave me my brother and my sister. For all of these things, I am grateful to you John, and I love you. Rest in peace.

John kehoe to me was a peace keeper a travel companion a hell of a talented musician a joker and a friend and mostly a father to me who was always there to listen.

He was able to crack a new joke on the spot and make everyone around giggle in laughter with a bright smile more times than not. Deep down I know he had tried his best for everyone and keeping his promises and seemed to strive to make peace and make sure friends and family were happy and safe.

I hope heaven is the way you have imagined it and now you and the rest of our family are looking down upon us with laughter and cheers. See you again in future dad and sorry for all the wrong and thank you deeply for all the good.
Will always love and miss you!!!
