You will be truly missed. You always called me "your little sis". You always had a smile and hug for me. I will miss that. You were always there when in need. We had a lot of good times together. Love you big brother.

I'm truly saddened by the loss of my friend John. We became friends when I first moved to Riverdale from North Dakota in 1960. John was a pleasure to spend time with. We went on several excursions together ie. hunting, camping, fishing. John had a great sense of humor as well. I am sorry that I lost track of him over the years and would have liked to have rekindled our friendship. I am sorry that I cannot attend the funeral as I am out of state. May god bless RIP John.

So sorry to hear about John's passing. I have so many great memories of John & my brother and growing up in Riverdale. May God be with John's family during this difficult time.

I'm sorry for your loss. I was friends with John in elementary school and junior high until my parents moved. I talked to him a few times when I ran across him during high school, but sadly lost track of him after that. I have talked to my family a lot about the things we did as kids growing up in Riverdale and they are memories I will always cherish. May God Bless you and keep you.

To my little buddy,dad,ex co worker,friend, and butt of some jokes. You will be truly missed and one less great guy missing from this earth. When I seen this announcement on social media my heart was sunk but I quickly remembered about the good times we had on night shift and jokes we played on each other with the spot lights and giving you crap about the "Orange Chevy" but truly red ;) my heart quickly fixed itself after remembering those moments with you. Rest in peace my true friend and you will never be forgotten!!

My friend you will be missed, haven't talk to for awhile but you will always be with my thoughts and when I think of you I smile. I don't know if this is where I leave one of my many memories of you but I'm going to state one of my favorites. I came by your house to visit and knocked on the door, no answer, knocked again, no answer. Then as I was leaving there was a loud noise from inside the house, a few seconds later you were at the door. You told me the noise was caused when you saw me out your window while running on a treadmill, you let go of the handle without shutting it off and you were shot across your room. I don't mean to make light of this unfortunate passing, but I want you to know I will always remember you.
