R.I.P Johnny, my good friend for close to 40 years. So many laughs and so many memories never to be forgotten.

Johnny I will always miss your bright smile and upbeat attitude, your love of music and ability to laugh at and with your friends. You are now free to walk and move like the wind without the restraints and disabilities you dealt with in life. I can see the smile on your face!!I love and will miss you always,Cari

I'm not sure if this is the same wonderful person that I'm thinking of: We lived in Washington Terrace in the 1970's and there was a "Jon Voigt" who lived across the street from us. He was about our age (we were also born in 1951) and we enjoyed him very much. He was single at the time. He had a few disabilities but also a heart that swelled wide with love. If this is the same "Jon" that we knew, I'd just like to say what a great man he was. Always considerate and kind, as well as being fairly witty. He was so good to our two little kids - always making them feel special. Whether this be "our Jon" or not, I want to wish you the best, and send our sympathy and love.
