We’ve only known John and his wonderful family for about 7 years now. From the very first day that Matt introduced us he made us feel like family. We loved to visit and just listen to the stories he and Pap would tell. We could tell from the start that he was a Godly man and a very dedicated family man. Rich and I would like to thank him and the rest of the family for bringing Matt into that wonderful fold. He will truly be missed by all that had the privilege to know him. Our hearts are sad and broken but realize he is resting peacefully and will be waiting for all us. We will continually keep the family in our thought and prayers and please know that we love each and every one of you.

I will miss you more than words can say. You were a good husband, a good father and grandfather, a good son, brother and uncle, a good friend and a good Christian. Which means you were a GREAT MAN. You took care of all of us. Our lives will not be the same without you in it. Rest in peace brother. I love you. Hope you and Dad are setting by a stream under a big oak tree enjoying the fishing.
