From one JH to another JH….you were a rock star! A mentor, a teacher, an inspiration and an amazing uncle! I never ever got tired of hearing Nigeria stories from you, with the most recent ones on June 29th. I loved you so very much and promise to keep loving and taking LH for our beautiful lunches.

Bill Elko

Kevin, Laurie and Family,
My sincere condolences to all of you.
My thoughts and prayers are with you
all at this difficult time.


I loved this guy so much! We had great conversations… he was both a listener and a story teller. As an uncle, he enriched my life beyond words. Auntie Lena… I will say the same about you, except you are less of a story teller and more of a listener! Your love inspires me. Hugs to you

Lorraine Harrison

So many happy memories growing up on vacations and at your home! Your heart and home were always open for all of us nieces and nephews… you had such an impact on us and always had your arms open with love! Your laugh was infectious and your eyes always twinkled. I wish I had spent more time over the years as when I was younger. I love you and will miss you!

Helena Swanson

So sorry to hear of John’s passing. Praying that in the midst of your grief you will experience the amazing peace of God……guarding your hearts and minds,
My memories go back many years but they are all pleasant ones! God bless you all.
