Still making new friends in his 80s and 90s, John will be sorely missed at the Black Diamond. His outstanding willingness to be part of the life of his community could be seen on the dance floor and hearing him sing the songs of his youth. We met John visiting his sister in a nursing home and learned of his genuine care and concern for his family and friends. It is a privilege to know John thought of us as his friends.

We are very sorry to hear of the passing of John. It's been years since we last saw him and Anna while on a visit "back home" with my parents and my family. They were so friendly and made us feel right at home.

Anna was my grandfather's sister. My grandmother, Dortha had kept in touch through the years since my grandfather had passed at such an early age back in 1983. We had a couple of really nice visits with John and Anna, along with my husband and children. I recall some yummy homemade sauerkraut and a delicious pork dinner to go with it!

Not being from an area surrounded by hills, I recall telling John that he should clear out some of the trees off the back porch area so that he could see the mountain view. He looked at me like I was crazy, since he said he sees it everyday of his life.

Our condolences to the entire family. I'm sure he will be very missed.
