Jeff and I are so fortunate that we were able to spend time with John and Cindy at the Jersey shore with Kathy, Frank, and the grandchildren. John was kind in heart and always had a smile on his face that brightened everyone's day. His grandchildren loved him and his memory will live on in their hearts.

I am so sad to hear of John's passing. Please accept my deepest sympathies. John was the nicest man I have ever known. He always had a smile and a kind word whenever he crossed my path. I'm sure he will be watching his family from heaven with the biggest smile you can imagine. He will be missed but not forgotten. Peace to his family, Terry Schureman

John was such a wonderful man, many faceted, very intelligent, and always kind. He will be remembered and missed by many, including me and my family. I am so very sorry for your loss.
