My memories are always of Uncle John’s big and cheerful smiles. In the 1958 photo attached, he is smiling at me when I was a baby.

From: Jared Neufeld
Relation: Grandson

I will always remember all the games I used to play with grandpa, especially chess. Whether we were at home or one of the lake properties, I marvelled how he could count cribbage hands so fast. I will miss his laugh and smile the most.
Thank you for all your love,

From: Lauren

John, So many heartwarming and fun visits with you and Margaret over the years .. giving help or advice or sending up prayers . You loved people and lived a life showing God’s love for them and loved your family so well! You always along with Margaret had stories to tell of your grandkids or great gkids and asked for prayer for them when needed. You were a blessing at church and around Brookhollow which was so appreciated. Your laughter and smiles, encouraging words and advice will be missed but the fond memories will never fade. Now you are being blessed beyond what we can imagine! 🌺
