    One of the best and loving Uncles anyone could ever hope for. Always there to lend a hand or an ear. I always looked forward to our talks and will miss you dearly. You will forever be in my heart Uncle John, and I know that you are with your heavenly family and we will see you once again when our time comes. Peace and comfort be with you and all of your family. So sorry I could not attend your service. Love you always, your "favorite" nephew, Rodney

    I share your sorrow in the loss of John. When I went to work at Copolymer he was my first Shift Superintendent along with working with John Edward. It seems I knew him forever as my Dad and J.P. worked most of their careers together. I always found your father and grandfather a quiet man. Even when I almost took him out with a slice on #8 at Phillips Golf Course. God bless you all.
