  • A great friend throughout our lives, from our youth as neighbors and school years together into adulthood. Great memories hanging out and playing hockey and soccer together! John will be missed! Our condolences to all of you. - Posted by: Brad Thomsen (Friend) on: Aug 16, 2021

  • Hello John - I'm so sorry I didn't get to see you before you had to leave. As I sit here writing this as I was making plans to visit this week. Reminiscing about our growing up days of playing hockey & racing moto-x are the things that I still do, & are the greatest things that stick with us. I will not forget the family that taught me how to ride motorcycles as this is what we did on any given Sunday. Now at peace & free of pain I'll think of you often my friend!
