He will be greatly missed by many. How blessed are those who came in contact with John....and how blessed John, was for the love of his wife, son and family. May God hold you in His arms offering you comfort, peace and support, as you journey ahead. Call out to God for help...He truly loves you. Take care and God bless you. Love, CJ Moench

I had the honor of knowing John for 14 yrs. I've never met a more gentle soul than John. Lisa, and family, rejoice in the fact he is now with your daddy surrounded by God's holy light forever and ever with Lord and savior, Jesus Christ. Imagine the time he's having. Take solace in that if you can as it helps the heart heal to know John will reap what he sowed here on earth. And we all know what kind of person he was. I miss him, and I love you Lisa and the family. God bless your sweet hearts during this sadness.
