John was just the sweetest guy you could ever meet. I remember when he would substitute teach at Linn R-2 and I would get to chat with him. Or seeing him so happy at church to worship. Your family is in my prayers. John will surely be missed but left behind great memories that cannot be forgotten.

I remember well mushroom hunting at night with John and July 4th celebrations at his home in Russellville. He was a kind, thoughtful, and gentle sole. I know he will be missed by his family and friends. Please accept our condolences.
