John was a kind and gentle person who loved spending time with family and friends. He will be greatly missed.
My favorite cousin. Always had positive things to say. Cared deeply, open minded, sweet. Was a man about town, was helpful in whatever way possible. Loved to chit chat. A bit of a loner but loved his family. You will be missed.

A loving person , I will miss his songs and big bear hugs. A real cool guy who loved his family and always had a smile on his face. I hope that John will have peace. Playing his guitar singing the Beatles songs for all those he loved. My little cousin I cherish his memory and always in my heart.
