John & Izzy were always wonderful neighbors. John always had a positive attitude and great work ethic. We enjoyed meeting John on the property line and discussing a variety of subjects. We enjoyed John's 'Can Do' approach to problem solving and his willingness to put his own personal effort into providing a solution. John will be missed, but not forgotten.

My condolences go out to John's family and friends. John was my mentor and he gave me my first engineering job way back in 1985. He essentially started my career. John demonstrated extreme patience, generosity and kindness during the years I worked with him. I will remember you all in my prayers. Mike Loescher, P.E.

My thoughts and prayers are with Ezzy and the rest of the family. My daughter took their dog for walks when Ezzy was laid up with her leg, and watered their plants when they were going to be a way for a period of time. Ezzy and John were always so appreciative and made Emily feel appreciated. God bless you all and may He hold you in His hands as you travel this journey.

John was always a "gentle" man. I appreciated his dedicated service as a board member at the Thompson Center when I worked there! His smile and support were special..

Ezzy I'm very sorry to learn of John's death. He has always been one of the most beautiful people I have known. I am in Florida and won't be attending the services but I will be thinking of both of you and offering my prayers for you and John. Larrie
Peace of mind is a call away. We're here when you need us most.

Dear Ezzy, Our deepest sympathies for you and your family. John was our favorite to visit with as he always had a smile and great words of wisdom. He genuinely enjoyed life as well as anyone who took the time to visit. It did not matter what the day was or the weather. Everyone cherished spending time with him and felt refreshed after talking. We will forever hold him in our memories for they broke the mold when he was born.

Dear Grandpa, stories are like old friends, they are good to come and visit sometimes. I will miss all the wonderful tales I have heard I will miss the pizza eating woman with all the bracelets, the funny wine seller who sometimes gave you free wine, the flashy dancer, the jewish frat boys, and much more. I will miss the big words and the complicated math I will never understand but most of all I will miss how you inspired me and my brothers. Thank you for always being interested in what I was up too and for always inspiring me to make sure I love what I do. I would not be the person I am today if it was not for you. I love you and will miss you very much.

Mrs. Rouman, Jane, Sarah and the rest of family, My heart just aches as I just heard of John's passing. What a special man he was. May his memories live on. John was a very special, kind, reserved and intelligent man. One of my memories of him was having a chance to chat with him when he worked on the weekends as I would often run into him at his office when I was cleaning at the NewHouse of Beauty during my high school years. He would always take time and chat with me. In addition, whenever I would go visit Jane at her house, John was always so kind to me and made me feel so very special. Even though it has been many, many years since I have had the chance to talk to him, I know he will be missed by all of us most importantly his family and friends will miss him dearly. At this time, I pray for everyone's peace. It is so very difficult to lose a loved one. I send my love to all of you. Feel my hugs from many miles away. Blessings to all of you, Teresa 248-891-4687

I have to say that John was one of the best men that I ever associated with in the Design and Construction industry. He was an honest and decent and kind man to all that knew him and he was a model of what a business owner should be like. I regret miissing the opportunity to purchase Rouman and Associates from John and work with him and learn from him. I consider it to be one of my biggest errors in my professional life. John's clients loved him and for good reason. A deal was a deal....period. This was a guy to emulate in life and business and will be dearly missed. I'm proud to say that I knew John and John was a friend of mine.......rest in peace John.

I can well appreciate what a great loss the death of John must be for the entire Rouman family. When my cousin John and I were growing up in Tomahawk, everyone called him ‘Big John’ and me ‘Little John,’ because we had the same name and he was three years older. But as John J. was reaching his prime, we all knew him for his ‘bigness’ in character and soul. Aristotle, in his great work THE RHETORIC, said ‘Even when the loss of his presence gives us pain, still a certain pleasure arises in our mourning and lamentation, for pain is felt at the loss of the beloved, but pleasure in remembering him and, as it were, seeing him as he lived and moved.’ I pray that our Lord give rest to the soul of John and preserve it in that life of blessedness forever and ever. May his memory be eternal!

So sorry to hear of John's passing but I'm happy he was able to enjoy such a wonderful birthday party and be in such good health and spirits for the occasion. You are all in my thoughts.
