    I was one of John's teachers at Trinity Lutheran. I remember him as warmhearted, always smiling - and a darn good student. I know he was loved by his fellow classmates. I am deeply saddened at his passing and I know God has welcomed him with open arms. My love and sympathy to his family. My prayers are with you all. Mrs. Patricia Myers

    John was a Christian first and foremost. He attended Trinity Lutheran School and served Trinity as an Elder. He and I taught Sunday School using the book of Job as the basis for those lessons. His smile defined him. He was a lovely man.

    Bob met John in middle school and I met him in high first memories are of his kindness and gentle spirit and his enormous smile. He was part of our close knit high school group and so many precious memories...he was there at East India Ice Cream in Winter Park when Bob proposed to me...he was in our wedding as a groomsman. He was key in helping Bob get his first job in college by driving him to the Space Coast and knocking on doors to get Bob's application in. He was always there for us - with encouragement, a gentle smile, a hug, words of concern and advice. He is precious and dear and was always positive. We continue to love him and hold him in our memory...and will miss him.

    I miss John at work. He was always a positive people person no matter if he was not feeling well. He encouraged me to "take the test" I told him he could pay for foray one and I'd pay for next one. At Christmas he and Jennifer have all of us mugs with our names. He looked up the church where my daughter was attending to show me the picture. John worried about how I was doing when he was dealing with this dreadful disease. I want him to know I did "take the test". Thank you John for giving unconditionally of yourself. (Hugs)

    I had the pleasure of John's friendship at work, albeit briefly. I also was privileged to provide solace to John during the early days of his diagnosis and give support to him as he made his life decision. Rest easily, John. You were loved and greatly admired.

    John will be sorely missed,but he left behind a lesson of how to be a loving person. Always had a smile, something funny to say and a compliment to offer. My final words were, I love you John...and I meant every bit.
