    Long time since we rode the Mapleton School bus together. Jon had such tales and I was so wide-eyed and gullible. Jon, Lynn Nelson and Kenny Olson spun some great yarns. Ah, to be young again. Sympathies indeed at a sibling’s passing.

  5. Ron Markey says:

    I met Jon when I started working at L&L Distribution back in 1983.
    He was always a great guy and a lot of fun to talk to,
    years later I ran into him on occasion at Sears in West Acres.

    Joann, Judy and Linda….The Bronken’s of Prosper mourn the loss of another Prosper ‘kid’. We are so sorry to hear that Jon has left us. He was one of the Prosper kids that made growing up in the Prosper community in the 1940’s so special. Our memories of Jon and his bold and assertive personality will live with us forever. Curtis, Dawn, Yvonne .

    I worked with Jon at Sears when I was a Lead in Home Improvement about 16 years ago. I never had a more dependable employee who was always willing to help, always willing to learn, always knowledgeable, and a great guy to talk to. It was a pleasure working with him each and every day. Sorry for your loss! RIP Jon!
