When I worked in Northwood, I got to know John when he was on the Planning Commission. He was one of the sweetest and kindest people I have ever met. He always would visit, spread good will, he was always positive, and talked at length about the love of his family, especially his wife and daughter - he was so proud. Even when I had left the area, he has sent me cards for Christmas every year for 10 years - how thoughtful! I always looked forward to his kind notes. I am so sad for his loss will be felt by many. RIP and prayers for comfort to his family.

Deepest condolences to a friend and the family. We grew up together as our parents were friends from their childhood in Ukraine. Life sent us in different directions and I am glad we had a chance to see each other again in recent years. You were a good man and I was proud to have known you.Rest in Peace! VICHNAYA PAMYAT!

I want to express how sorry Iam for the familys loss. There are some very comforting words found in Gods Word, the Bible, at Acts the 17th. chapter, verses 24 & 25 where God is called "the source of life"......the One who gave life to all living creatures is certainly capable of restoring life to our loved ones who have died. Another comforting scripture is found in the Bible book of Job, the 14th. chapter, verses 14 & 15. It speaks about how God longs to bring back those who are in His memory & see them live on earth again. I hope this brings the family comfort. My sincere condolence to you & yours.

We are very grateful for John's military service in the US Army, having defended the freedoms that we patriotic Americans enjoy today. Now and in the days ahead, may Jesus our God of comfort, Emmanuel, hold you all in the palm of His hand as you remember and celebrate his life legacy. jwfacts.org has been a valuable resource and we thoughtfully share. 'And He will raise you up on eagles' wings; bear you on the breath of dawn; make you to shine like the sun, and hold you in the palm of His hand'.
