Memories & Candles
I am so sorry to hear about John. I only heard tonight when Fr. Charlie called. I would have come to the funeral if I had known. Both you and John were so nice to me at Fr. Gerry's ordination anniversary party in 2011 and I truly enjoyed the time spent with you. I miss Fr. Herman every day and I am sure he led the welcome party for John. Wanda, please know that you remain in my prayers as this first anniversary approaches. May all of your beautiful memories comfort you.

I'm very sorry to hear of John's passing.
I met John while volunteering on the LST 4th of July Parade Committee. Not knowing anyone at that first meeting, he quickly welcomed me and made me feel like I had been a part of the Committee for years.
Thank you, John. Keep them smiling in heaven.

My sincere condolences to Wanda, JB, Gerry, & the rest of the family.
I will truly miss the daily "Mayor of Feasterville's" quick wit, jokes, spoonerisms, and friendly enlightening smile that I had the pleasure to endure for over twenty years.
He had become a friend & 2nd Dad to me over the years.
"Hello, My name is John. Every house should have one."
Now so does the house of the lord does.

Where can I even begin....you've been like a second father to me for the past 20yrs. You've always been the person concerned for everyone else -- keeping us happy and laughing. You've always been such a generous person, always willing to give a helping hand.
You've always been so loving and giving with Mom and your family. You should be so proud that you raised a happy and loving family. I thank you for raising John to be such a

John and I worked together in L&I, for a short time, in 06, and it quickly became apparent to me, he had this knack, of brightening the the mood of people around him. He will be sorely missed by his co-workers, and those who came to know him, in the various township departments.
