I am saddened to learn about John's passing. I worked with him for years at Regis University. He was a great professor and John gave the students "the best and all that he had." I am looking forward to visiting with him again in heaven when I pass eventually. Best wishes to his family and condolences.

Uncle John was a kind and intelligent man with a wry sense of humor. I spent time over several summers with Heather at his and Aunt Dera's home in Wausau. Those are treasured memories and he will always be in my heart.

Our sincere condolences. John was a warm and kind man. One of my favorite memories of him was when he taught 7 year old Andrew how to fish when we were at the cottage. Beyond patient! I know how how much you will all miss him.

I am saddened to learn about the passing of John. I worked for John for several years at Wausau Insurance/Nationwide/Liberty. He was an admired IT manager. So many memories. Trip 1: We traveled to Toronto to attend a workshop. On our return flight we were stranded in MSP. Republic Airlines was sold. Trip 2: I gave a presentation at the IASA conference at the Hyatt Regency on Wacker Drive in Chicago. We attended the conference together. John was my mentor. Trip 3: We took the corporate jet along with 3 other IT team members and my husband to conduct a CDC test. We had so many laughs on our return flight. It was a honor to have worked for/with John. He was a highly intelligent man and a private one. But he did speak frequently of the love of his life - his wife Dera and daughter Heather. We visited Marco Island recently and I thought about John and Dera. Wish I could have seen him one more time. My thoughts and heart goes out to his family. Our condolences. Alvie
