John met Judy while on he was on leave from the Air Force, and after serving in Vietnam for a year, he came home to marry the love of his life. They shared many years of happiness together along with their children and grandchildren. “God first” was a phrase he lived by. He loved sharing his faith and Jesus with others.
We’re all deeply saddened by this loss, but we rejoice in knowing that he is resting peacefully with the Lord, whom he loved so very much.
In lieu of funeral services, the family will be hosting a memorial luncheon in John’s honor. Date and time to be announced.
