I am very sorry for your loss. He was a great person. I worked with him at SW Bell and saw him in the reserves. He is missed.

Linda, John was a great person to be around. I always enjoyed working with him at Bell Tel. He was funny and the smartest SWBT Tech I ever knew (but never acted like it). Another former tech & I were talking about John, he said to me, "John always had a smile on his face & always had a story to tell". Not sure I could say it any better! All our lives were made a little better by having John in them. Now he can help us from above! Thanks for calling and letting me know about John's passing. I'm sorry I didn't get to speak to you at the service.
