I was so sorry to hear of John's passing. I respected his efforts in municipal life of Union City. Most of all I really enjoyed his skill at the bridge table. My sympathy to all of the family.

So sorry to hear of Johns passing. We didn’t know him well, but know he was a truly wonderful man. We always enjoyed visiting with him when we played euchre at Little Manatee Springs. May you find peace knowing he is in Heaven.

John was such a special man. The time I spent with Evelyn and him in Little Manatee Springs in Florida was always a delight. I never talked to John without leaving with a smile on my face. I am truly sorry for your loss.
