    Sending God’s comfort and condolences at this time to all of John’s family – especially his wife Margie. As a relatively new neighbor – I met both John and Margie as they strolled by our home one day. From then, I noticed John often passing by on his way to Walmart, or I would see them both with their dogs while we were all out on our daily walks. He seemed to be a kind and gentle soul. He will be missed – yet his legacy through his family will live on. A life well lived.

    I was just a dumb student in his Japanese class in high-school. I acted as a teacher assistant and probably the only one at the time to take Japanese 5-6. I went to Japan. He was an amazing human being and deeply touched the lives of many.
