Condolences to Gloria and all the family. John was a great friend and super athlete. He excelled in basketball, baseball, cross country and discus throwing. When John was about 40 years old a basketball team he played on won the Church League in Lima. He was still smooth as silk. He was knowledgeable of manufacturing processes and trained me to be an Estimator at Ex-Cell-o Corp. before the name change to AirFoil Textron. John was a believer in Christ the Lord and encouraged others to become believers also. He will be missed by all who knew and loved him.

Gloria, Our entire family is so sad to hear of John’s passing. You all were like family when we were growing up in Lima. I’ll always remember the fun memories of tennis tournaments and just hanging out at Orchard Hill tennis club. We loved John very much and glad he is at peace.So sorry that we will not be able to be there tomorrow. Love Sudha, Jay, Rekha, Rupa and R.K. from heaven.

Gloria and family I loved Uncle John. He was a very likable man. I wish we could have spent more time together when I was small. It felt like you guys lived states away but back in the good ole days people didn't travel far often. The Uncle I know of today was funny and lovable. I will miss him even if it's just the time we spend together at the reunion. The last time I seen him it was just like looking at Dad. Him ,Dad and Sam I'm sure are celebrating his coming home. I love you Aunt Gloria and Mike and Chris. I am so sorry for your loss.
Peace of mind is a call away. We’re here when you need us most.
