I only knew John through working with his wife Judi. When he came through the door to see her, they both glowed as if they were high school love birds having their first dance. I have no doubt that John will remain a part of Judi forever. We love you Judi-keep glowing.

John had such a warm smile. Even if you didn't know him, he made you feel like a long lost friend. Most memorable to me is that he made Judi's heart melt with a love that is beyond words. The flowers, calls and visits while we were working together at CAT made us all very happy to see her full of such joy. His tremondous love for his children was absolutely adorable. John's family & friends are in our prayers & thoughts, we love you all so much!
