I got to know John about 3 years ago as I was doing some feral cat trapping where he lived. He was kind enough to keep me posted on new cats who wandered not the property and he took great joy in befriending two young girls who lived in the same complex. He celebrated their birthdays and was sure to have Christmas gifts for them every year.  Right after Christmas 2022 he was proud to tell me his one son gave him Sees’ chocolates and offered me a piece.  He was a kind man with a big heart. I’ll miss seeing him sitting outside in the Spring.

This really saddens me. John and I had some fun times in school and he did have a contagious laugh. He will be sorely missed. Heaven gained a great one! Until we meet again John….

I’m so sorry to hear of John’s passing. I really admired him for creating his own business at such a young age. Prayers being lifted for John & his family.

Travis, many fond memories of your father coming to drop you off at our house where you spent some time before school started in the morning.  And the times we would drop Derek off at your house for play time we never got out without talking to your Dad.  Our thoughts and prayers are with you and your family at this time.  Larry and Donna Ridinger

Much Sympathy to John’s Son’s, and Siblings. John’s salad dressings were quite tasty, and John was a very likeable person.

He sat behind me in homeroom.   What a funny and sweet person.   I’m so sorry for his family’s loss. I never and will never forget his contagious giggle.   We lost a good one
