    What a bright light John shared with those of us privileged to know him. It was a pleasure and an inspiration to see how much he enjoyed his devoted family members. Our loss is heaven’s gain.

    John was a kind hearted man, Always wanted to help out and had positive things to say with a smile on his face. Loved to do activities and volunteer his time to help others. He was our family here at Golden Manor and made this place home. He will be dearly missed.
