I wish all of John’s family peace and comfort in this time. I take solace from remembering John’s intellect, world view, as well as his clever retorts that would incite deeper thoughts than the current conversation was carrying. I found him very interesting and polite as well as a straight forward thinker who was well-equipped to defend his position in any discussion.

Please accept my warmest condolences during these trying times and for the days ahead. John had a way of lighting up a room with his gentle smile and he will be greatly missed at KW. Continued Prayers,

John was a great friend - gone too soon. He and I were like "twin sons of different mothers." Similar childhoods, work careers and outside interests. We had great times at KW. He will be greatly missed. Condolences to the family. He was so proud of his kids. Take care.
