Uncle John has been an integral part of our family. The love he has shown to his wife Sandy, the growth of his children David and Lacy into wonderful adults as well as the family bonds he has nurtured and maintained throughout the years will live on as a legacy to a truly wonderful man.

I will always remember him for his sense of humor and passion for mechanics. Some of my earliest memories were of him tinkering on a racecar that he built and the joy it brought him.

He will be sorely missed.

John was truly a father-figure to all of us that worked closely with him at Edmark. He impacted my life in many ways and I could never say enough good about the best boss that I have ever had. You will continually be missed...
