    I didn't get the pleasure of ever meeting John, but felt I knew him through his dear friend Jackie. Thoughts and prayers to all during this difficult time. May the memories of his life always light your hearts and bring you joy.

    John was a dear friend who will be missed by Stanley and I. We were always able to find humor in all situations. We know how much he missed his Mother, we can relate to hiss loss. But he is up in Heaven having tea with her and he is happy and free. John was a good man and friend, we were blessed to have him in our lives. Our deepest sympathy to his family.

    Read notice about your dad. I am saddened by your loss, and I am sure he will be missed by all who knew him

    It's good to see he has 4 grands. That means, Sarah and Megan, you are carrying your father's life into the future.

    I mentioned the notice to Mrs Kile (clinic) and Jodie(can't remember last name) who was good friends with Megan, and to Mrs Kish-Rowell, who I think had Megan one year. There aren't many teachers left at MGES from when you were there.
    I retired after 2012, Coach Garner didi in 2014, all that's left are Mrs. Tumolo, Mrs. Crane, and Mrs. Kish-Rowell.

    I'd love to hear how you two have fared over the years. If you wish to fill me in email to I remember your faces so well, and all the good you brought to MGES.
