    John was such an “easy to like” kind of guy. He was so talented in his job, and always had an answer for dealing with difficult construction problems. He will be missed by many.
    Rest in Peace, John.

    I never saw John in bad mood. He was a joy to be around and will miss his “one liners”. We are very sorry for your loss and he will be truly missed. Our prayers and thoughts are with the family. Lynda and Jewel Ware

    Johnny you will be missed. You will live on through me brother with all the skills and knowledge you passed down to me. I will cherish all those years we had together and will think of you every time I’m tinkering around the house. May you rest in peace friend. I am so sorry Randy and Deana you are in my thoughts.

    I only knew John very briefly when he and the Cradoct team remodeled my old house. He was a kind and fun guy and an excellent carpenter. I appreciated his talent and work ethic. Very sorry at his loss.
