  1. John was a dear family friend. Our patents were good friends, so we spent a lot of time together over the years. John was always quick to respond when my mom needed something done at the house. I will never forget his dry sense of humor and that certain look that had never changed since he was a young boy! My family and I are praying for your comfort and strength. Rest in peace, John.

  2. I was so sorry to hear of John’s passing. He was always so nice when he came to fix things at my house and very honest. When people needed something fixed he was always my first recommendation! He will be greatly missed. My deepest condolences to Kerry and the family 🙏🙏

  3. Kerry,
