Sorry on your loss. Met John when I worked at Haven Homes. We would chat about farming and I think he even knew my Grandpa Gordy cause he hauled milk back in the day. Thoughts & prayers with all of you during this very difficult time.
So sorry for your loss. We are Town Hall Drive neighbors.
So sorry for your loss . We will keep the family in are prayers
Jim and I are so sorry for your loss and want to recognize what a long and wonderful life John had. John was a great friend to us over the years that it was our great honor to know him. His love of his family’s land and their history in this area provided hours of stories that filled the times we spent with John and we are the better for it. We came to love this area even more by seeing it through John’s eyes and his memories. He was generous with his time and knowledge with us and his tolerance for “city kids” that moved to his country. Our sadness at John’s passing is made bearable by the memories of his kindness and wonderful sense of humor.
