    Dear Hazel and kids; William and I are shocked and deeply saddened by the news that John passed away. When we think of how sad it made us, we realized that your burden of grief must be insurmountable! There is such a huge hole left in the universe where John once stood. He really made a difference in so many lives by his many, selfless acts with so many groups and activities. You are all so blessed to have been able to share his life with you. It won’t be long until all the sadness will be replaced with all the wonderful memories you all have of him. I believe that when we connect so deeply with another person that their death only takes away their body. John’s spirit will always be with you and your family. You are very fortunate that he loved you and counted on you to be his soft place to be when stresses really got him down and the first person he wanted to find when something wonderful happened. Our live and prayers are with you and the family through this difficult time.

    I was lucky to meet John and play volleyball with him at the Y, and at my birthday parties the past couple years. John had such a good sense of humor, and was so much fun to hang out with. You will be missed John. We will look after Hazel for you. RIP

    John & Hazel are two of my best friends. We spent a lot of fun time together, either dancing or exercising. I feel so sad that John passed away. He helped me & many others in dancing as well as many other things. It’s a big loss in dancing community without John. My prayers to Hazel and the rest of their families. John, you will be deeply missed.

    So sad and shocked to hear of Johns passing. I knew John from my High School days back in Lockport, NY. He was a great guy. Sometime later reconnected with him on social media. My condolences to all John’s Family. From reading all the condolences here, it’s evident that John was beloved in his community, and will be greatly missed.
