"Thank you, dear John, for 55 years of love and caring. For happy and serious times, for laughing and crying with me. You said "I'll fly away" on your last day on this earth and I know that you flew to a better and happier place.""

"Sometimes the seemingly smallest comment can forever change a life.  John shared with me about his filing system for overcoming paperwork clutter.  Now every time I file something or am able to find a piece of information I've filed, it reminds me of John's kind sharing.  Thanks, John!"

"John was truly a model for a gentleman. I was pleased to be included in this list. My sympathy for his close ones in this loss for all of us.

This tribute was added by Elizabeth Eisen on 8th November 2010

"John Purvins was a regular visitor to the Appleton Public Library's programs and Reference desk. He was always a true "gentleman" and quite scholarly in his communications. I also conversed with him at a few of the conversation sessions at Harmony Cafe and was impressed with his breadth of knowledge. May he rest in peace."

This tribute was added by Kenneth Bozeman on 7th November 2010

"John's commitment to seeking and obeying God was as serious as anyone I've ever known, and therefore an inspiration to those who knew him. He therefore held his convictions strongly, which was not always comfortable, but which was always motivated by a respectful fear of the Lord. John was also amazingly stimulated to seek new insight and knowledge, something I will aspire to emulate."

This tribute was added by Kenneth Ellis on 7th November 2010

"John's quest to know God was infectious and a testimony to the Holy Spirit that lived within him. While always seeking to know more and while very firm in his convictions, John was always open to hear the thoughts and heart of others. I will always remember my times with John as being joyful and rewarding."
