  1. An unmatched soul

    Written by: Karen Steward

    One of the “Good Guys”! His playful spirit and random 80’s rap lyrics is what I will hold onto the most. He so loved his wife and children. They were and always will be the focal point in his heart. He was a loving and generous friend. He took pride in everything he did. It was my pleasure to serve him as his assistant. Until we meet again brother. As he would say to me “Peace and Chicken Grease”.

  2. Loving Memories

    Written by: Nona Jones

    Having met John through work enriched my life. He was a remarkable person. He was kind, friendly, and unique in his own way. He showed respect to everyone. Toni, seeing his love for you daily was a pleasure and great example to all. His loss not only affects your immediate family, but his friends and co-workers. The world has lost a great man. May God’s protecting arms and comfort be with you and the children not only at this time, but days and weeks ahead.
