Many happy memories of the two years John sat next to me (kept me in line) in confirmation class at Capitol Drive Church, the classes we shared at John Marshall H.S. and Spencerian College. Rest in Peace John.

John was a wonderful sales man and friend for the 16 years I was traffic manager at Hentzen Coatings in Milwaukee. His professionalism and humor made my business operations a pleasure. I also worked with him at the Ozaukee Traffic Club. His enthusiasm and generosity aided in making those gatherings succeed. Any time we met, I especially appreciated his stories about his family, often told with a twinkle in his eye, revealing how he adored them. His faith lit his path and I believe he is on his continuing journey offering his voluminous joy and love. RIP John, you made a wonderful difference.

Sue .. my sincere condolences and deepest sympathy to you and your family. I am proud to say that John was my friend. He was a favorite of my mom and dad. He referred to my mom as Mrs. Medda Ball. My mother affectionately called him Johnny John John. And she was always happy to make him Mrs. Paul's onion rings. John supported my parents when I was in Vietnam. I have fond memories of that wonderful man. May God Bless him with a special place in heaven. He will be missed by me and our high school group of 62 years.

God Bless you John, I will never forget all the rounds of golf and leagues we belonged to, all the bowling nights. The forty plus years I was able to call you my friend. All the times you asked how Sandy was doing and to say hi. Your jokes and how you helped those in need. Very grateful for the 10-15 minutes we shared on the phone just last week. I told you then God was holding you in his arms. Now he is forever.
