John and I became friends when we both started working at Alcoa after World War II. We were both Marines. Our benches were next to each other for our many, many years there.

I will miss calling him to get his predictions for Purdue&s football team as well as his calls to me to remind me when Purdue is on TV. We spoke just last year.

We spent many pleasant times over the years from Die Shop dinners to Retiree dinners as well as just time with our families.

John was a good friend and I will miss him.

So sorry to hear of John&s ""The Bluebird Man"" passing.
We enjoyed our visits with him & Leota over the years.
After Leota passed we were able to meet Kenny when he
brought his dad to meetings. I wonder just how many
Bluebirds were raised in the houses that John built?
Probably too many to count !!
You have our deepest sympathy.
Indiana Bluebird Society, Ken & Susan Murray
Peace of mind is a call away. We’re here when you need us most.

May you always be blessed with the wonderful memories of your father. Some people live a lifetime without having one parent or both but, you were given the gift of having them both. Your father stayed behind to make sure that his children were going to be okay after the loss of your Mother.... He finally found peace enough to let go and be next to your Mother... where he had been all these years. Your parents are now complete and together again.... Please know that I am here for you.

Dearest Becky and all the Kuckartz family,
I&m so very sorry to hear about the loss of your father. Though I didn&t know him well, I do remember his workshop in the garage where Becky and I used to make up some strange concoctions. And I remember a certain station wagon after we girls had taken it out for the evening and the comments he made to Becky the next day. He always seemed bigger than life to me--kind, knowing,understanding, and dependable. He will be greatly missed by all who ever had the pleasure of meeting him and more so by his loved ones. I pray that you each feel the Lord wrapping His loving arms around you to give you His peace and comfort.

I knew John in my previous life over 20 years ago when I, too, worked in Tool and Die at Alcoa. I know Ken much better and miss the conversations that we used to have. John was a fine man and from Ken I learned he was also a fine father. It is difficult for us when any leave us behind but John was a man who did things the right way and left a family legacy that will live on.
My thoughts are with you at this time.

You can rejoice in the fact that your Dad is now with your Mom walking hand and hand on those streets of gold. Janis
