John will be greatly missed. He was one of the funniest guys around, especially when he was teamed up with his old buddy Joe Shaver. It was so generous when he would give away last year's calendars from his Hallmark Stores to those in need. Mark Sobeck

The obituary as I read it was very well written and emotionally moving. John had a blessed life and each time I had seen him at an event he always was cordial no matter what his physical condition may have been.He was head of a very large loving family and enjoyed spending time with them all. Rest in peace John,you made the most of the time the Lord gave you on this earth and now it is time for you to rest in peace as you reflect on those you left behind. Sincere sympathy to Natalie and all your family members. Ann Marie Swetz
