Lorraine & Family
I was so sorry to hear of the passing of John, I was in the K of C with him. I first met John when I made my 3rd degree & John was the Deputy GK. I'll always have very fond memories of John & his warm personality & sense of humor. John was instrumental in getting me to become an officer in the K of C as now I'm the Grand Knight of the council. May God give comfort in your time of grief, May God Bless you & your Family

Going to the Knights monthly meetings will never be the same again.
I will miss your sense of humor and how you looked at life.
Bob Churchill and myself will always remember the good times,and someday we all will meet up again.
Take care my friend,
