    My heart goes out to you. When I heard John was not feeling well I prayed for him. Then that Sunday morning I heard John had passed, my heart sank and I cried for the family. My deepest sympathies to you and the family. Now god has John in his arms with no more pain and nothing but peace.

    Dear Sally and family, Rich and I send our deepest sympathies. John was an icon at FCS. He was energetic, always had a smile, and was an outstanding instructor. He often talked about his family and how much he loved you all. He was a good person and will be missed by many.

    I just saw that John had passed away. He was my boss for 3 years at FCS. We trained the operators. What a great guy and great boss. It was an honor to have known him. Rest in peace John!
