    My thoughts and prayers are with you at this time. John was a wonderful man who always saw the positive in things. I got to work with him for a short time at Price Chopper in Ogdensburg. Before that I got to know him as a customer for the House he work for at United Helpers.

    To John’s family, I am very sorry to hear of your loss. I went to high school and graduated with John, and he was always a very nice person..very quiet. I seen him from time to time in the local stores, and he always greeted me with a smile. The Class of 1980 will surely miss John.

    I will miss John he hung out at my house on Clark street right up until I went to the military. My parents consider John as one of theirs. He was so close in my family that he became my little brother God Father. He is up there now with my parents, John say hi to them for me. Love you and glad your not in pain anymore. With Randy I know you are playing cards with my Dad. Until we meet again. LOVE YOU JANICE

    As I was unaware of John’s illness, I was shocked to learn of his passing! I am so sorry Jim, Mike and Karen, and Shirley, whom I have known for years; he was so young, and such a nice man.-always friendly and stopped to chat a bit when I’d see him. You all and your parents were among the first folks I met when I moved next door to you on Franklin Street almost 34 years ago. Big Jim always had a kind word or piece of advice to give. Again, my most sincere condolences.
    You three boys and your
