John was the sweetest man and one of the Good Guys at Whirlpool.  He was always ready to help out any way he could.  He was the same way with his family.  He loved them and was there for them.  He will be missed.

John was like a brother to me while growing up and spending time with him and his brother Hank at his sister Betty and my uncles house during the summer months. Hadn't seen him in years, but still loved him like a brother. Prayers to the family and friends.

My deepest condolences to Cindy, John Boy, Travis, Ryan and all the other members of his seemingly endless extended friends and family. My family has been fortunate to be neighbors of John & Cindy for almost three decades. In that time we have went from neighbors to becoming family and that is in no small part to the unconditional love given by John. When we lost my mother almost 4 years ago although he was struggling with illness him and Cindy were the first ones there to give me one his big hugs and tell me "It'll be alright buddy, I love you". I take comfort in knowing that he is at home with the Lord smiling down on the grandbabies he loved so much and is no longer in any pain.
