Susie and Linda I am so sorry to hear of the passing of Uncle Johnny. I have many memories of him and being at his house and playing "school" in the basement and playing "house " out in the barns out back! And having him and my Mom, (his Sister) come visit pulling in my driveway on his motorcycle! God bless, Sherry

I am sure he is proud of the legacy he leaves behind in his children, their spouses, his grandchildren and great grandchildren. He will live on in the hearts and cherished memories of all whose lives he touched. Sending you prayers for strength and comfort during this difficult time. Big hug to you all. RIP Sir

John was a constant kind hearted helpful man. He was always there with encouraging words for me. He shared a story with me while he was welding metal seats on some ice cream chairs my late mother had given me. In conversation I learned that John had worked for my 2 late uncles, William Smith and Larry Smith of Smith Steel before he was employed by Whirlpool.
John was a sweet man who always spoke highly of his family.
I shall miss him,
Caryn Gifford...friend

We are so sorry for your loss. It’s been an absolute pleasure being Johns neighbor for the last four years. I’ll never forget, soon after we moved in, he came over with a fist full of dandelions. Not as a gift, but to let us know in the kindest way, that we were the reason he had them in his yard. He also offered to help us out with any welding project we had in mind.
We’re going to miss him and his graciousness. We feel so fortunate to have met him.
Our thoughts are with you at this time.
Anita & Ryan
