Much love and our sincere sympathy to Aunt Evelyn and Betty, Donna, Rob, Shirley and families. Uncle John was such a role model, loving friend/uncle, and entertaining gentleman that their won't be many measuring up in our lifetime. To say he'll be missed seems too small a statement. But he leaves us with a lifetime of memories and we'll treasure them always.

Jim and I are thinking of your family at this sad moment in your life. “John” was a really nice man and had lots of spirit and a great twinkle in his eye and this has been passed onto his great grand children. Hug Grandma for us. She will need your strength and circle of love. Lili Anne and Jim
