    A good husband, father and friend. John will be missed a great deal. From my earliest memories of teenage years when we used to call him preacher, because he dressed all in black, to the present…he was a loyal caring person. He is an angel in the company of our best angels now. Rest in peace John.

    We are so sorry for your loss. Mom would have loved to come, but was not physically able to make the trip from Phoenix. My wife Ger and I wanted to be there as well, but had weather issues and were not able to join you. You have been and will remain in our thoughts and prayers. It was so good to see you and meet John last August. it would be wonderful to see you again. All the best to you and your entire family. Hopefully we can see you again soon!

    I’m sorry to hear about John. I always knew him as One Eye and remember all that hair under the baseball cap. Did a few golf tournaments with him at the Leonard Golf Course. Rest in peace and prayers for Sue and John’s family.
