I am sorry for your family's loss!
Our deepest sympathies during this difficult time. It was a pleasure to know John. May your memories comfort you during this most difficult time.
It is with deepest sympathy that I send my condolences on the passing of John. I enjoyed his company he loved his Edgewater Grill meals. The last time I saw him he was surrounded by family and enjoying every minute. God Bless.
Will never meet a more respected person,than John. We talked almost every evening about everything and anything. He was the proudest of his family.......children & grandchildren. He loved sitting on his deck and when visiting that is where we ended up. Will miss him so much , but now telling his many stories with Mary Ann ....Steve, who he missed terribly. Mike& Kerry
The Officers of Knights of Columbus Council 568 wish to take this opportunity to express our condolences on the passing of our Brother Knight John, a 27 year member of the Knights of Columbus.
We all start life in a watery tomb, unknowingly headed for a birth tunnel and to a life of breathing air, and water no more. We hauntingly move toward another tunnel ,a "birth" into a much better "world". As Christians, we know that Christ entered that tunnel through death and came back to His followers to reassure us where that tunnel leads. Be not afraid, I go before you always, come follow me. For I go to prepare a place for you. To his family, may your faith, your friends and family love bring you peace and comfort at this time.
