Dear Barbara and family, You are in my prayers at this difficult time. We all loved John so much, like a member of our own family. I have many fond memories of John, most of which were on or near the water. He is now with his loving Father, and watching over us all. Marcia and Kerry Backes

I had the good fortune to know John since the mid thirties when we both attended Sacred Heart Elementary School and served as altar boys at the church. John was an example for us all to follow. He was always in good spirits and it was a delight to be in his company. He was a wonderful husband and father and he and his wife raised beautiful and talented children. I'm sure God will reward him for all his efforts.

Goodbye dear neighbor. Your presence on Nassau Way will be missed. May God comfort your family as you move on to bigger and better things.
Peace of mind is a call away. We’re here when you need us most.

I was very sorry to hear of John's passing. He was my manager in my first job after college. He was a great manager, and friend. Things that I learned from him benefited me throughout my career. Probably the most important thing that I noticed about him was that, though he worked hard at his job, he always put it in the proper perspective. I hope that the family can find peace at this hard time.

You will be missed so much by so many people. You were a wonderful friend and neighbor. One of my memories of you was when you would ride your bike around the neighborhood and to the beach, and later riding your bike with your oxygen strapped on! You lived life to its fullest! With Love sent up to you and to your family, Julie, Don, Sydney and Corey Fanning
