Grace Gardens Funeral Chapel Staff send our condolences to family and friends.

Relation: friend

May John and his family find peace and his family wrap themselves in the warm memories of their father. Growing old was not easy for a proud man like John. And he did it like he always handled his life, with grace, caring and determination. His memories for me will be driving by one of the many buildings or houses that he built — or one of the many trees that he planted. Always in our hearts and minds….
