  1. Mrs. Wilson,
    I am so sorry for your loss. I remember all the days playing with John when we lived on Caledonia and I will miss visiting with him at the dances. I often tell people that John was the reason I chose to work in the field. I send you and your family prayers and light,

    Brenda Amman

  2. Ruth, Todd & Laura, Jillian and the rest of his family: I will truly miss this “Champ”. He made this world a brighter, happier place. With bowling starting soon,we will have a huge hole at our practices & tournaments, along with some wonderful warm memories that I hope will carry us through. I am so very sorry for your loss. He will be missed by so many.

  3. Dear Ruth and Laura I am so sad to see that John passed away. I am certain that he was nothing short of a pure pleasure to have in your life. Wesley and I will miss seeing him during special olympic bowling. What luckey people to have had such a precious soul apart of your life . Johns presence was so wonderful, he touched alot people along the way. Our thoughts and prayers are with both of you during this time. Sincerely Vickie Jagger

  4. I first met John on the 1990 LUVLife work trip to Mendicino California. He brought joy to everyone around him. He had fun staying with the “guys” in our cabin. He was fascinated with the giant redwood trees in the area. We had fun singing “I’m a lumberjack and I’m ok” while we were there.

    I will always remember John with a smile on his face.

    Best wishes
