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

Council 568 Burlington Knights of Columbus on Sep 6, 2018

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.
