Condolences & Memories (2 entries)
John was a very special person, always willing to share his knowledge about plants, animals and anything electrical or mechanical. He donated endless time and effort to local organizations, which was tremendously appreciated. John was always a character, full of stories, gruff at times, and we loved him. Rest in peace John, until we meet again. - Posted by: Jackie & Neil Shale (Friends and Neighbors) on: Jun 01, 2019
