Sharing in your sadness John will be missed . we are so sorry for your loss .


It seems like every time we pulled up to rehearse at St. Vincent's, John was always there. Whether he was making the grounds and gardens a more beautiful place, or helping out in some other way, John was a steady presence at St. Vincent's who could always be counted on to flash a smile or lend a hand. We send our deepest condolences to his family and friends for his tragic loss and pray that God will hold you in the palm of His hand during this painful time. Eternal rest grant unto him O Lord, and may perpetual light shine upon him. He will be missed.

My brother John, we had many good times together and always looked out for one another. Spoke to you a week ago and now I’m saying a final goodby. I love you brother and I know God needed a good man above just sad it was time to go and your now at rest. I send my blessing and love to your family and will see you again one day my friend. God bless


So very sorry for your loss, Sharon. John was one of the most genuine, selfless individuals we have ever met. May he rest in peace and may the good Lord keep you and your family close by his side.
