To John's family and friends, I saw a sign the other day it said " GOD IS HIRING" Looking for great ,smart, and caring people to help me in Heaven. I'm trying to fix some of these problems that are so wrong with the living earth that it is starting to die. And I have noticed GOD has been taking a lot of smart, great, caring people for hire to help him.I think now that John is there to help we will see a lot of good changes coming our way to fix some of the mess on Earth. God bless John and all of his family and friends he will be greatly missed. But remember he is helping God. Family friend waitress and cook from Parkside Deli Vickie Austin and family

It’s so sad that John has left us. John was a good friend, great HS football player that I can say we were team mates on a 10-0 football team in 1966. John was a hell of good person and a wonderful team mate as well as a great friend off the field. I remember our days at his house playing poker and drinking a few adult beverages back in the day. Wouldn’t trade those days for anything. What a good time we had after our HS football games on Friday & Saturday nights...second to none! June you married the right guy because he was such a good guy I know of no one who spoke a bad word about him. I’m sorry for your loss and I know he will be watching over you in the years to come. John RIP and please know that you will never be forgotten and that your legacy will forever be remembered! Love you brother...until we meet again! Big Bob Page We were
