I am saddened to learn of Mr. John's passing. I remember him well from years ago whenever he worked with my Dad. (Dewey Shealy) He was always thought of very fondly.
Deepest and heartfelt sympathy extended to you all.

Uncle John was always so much fun to be with. So many memories have been flooding my heart the last couple of days. My last picture of him is with my children and I and Denise and her two older girls and they all thought he truly was Santa Claus. Our thoughts and prayers are with you Charley.
