We have many happy memories of activities together at St. Andrew’s Presbyterian Church, singing in the choir and working on projects around the church building and grounds.
May the Lord give his comfort and peace to all of those that John has left behind.

Rob and I will miss our neighbor, our drives to Tim’s, rides about town just to see the atmosphere, and including him at dinner time. He would often give me a call to check on my phone for the weather over night. Jan and Rob would smoke a couple while stories were told of bygone eras. We will miss this man. He has finally joined his dear Betty whom he missed so much. Condolences to his family.

My deepest sympathy to the family. John was a fine man, with whom I had numerous conversations after he moved to Nobel and when I still lived there. His love for choir music was obvious, as was his love for his family and his stately home. He will surely be missed!

-Peter Spadzinski

I met Mr. and Mrs. Veerman at St. Andrew’s church many years ago. Such a lovely, classy couple with such a strong faith. Condolences to the family near and far.

Many fond memories of John, Betty and family, from neighbors across the way. So many great times boating, fishing, sledding, having tea and talking. John will be greatly missed! Thankfully John survived Larry's target practice shots to live a very full and wonderful long life. Much love to Mieke, Dave, Ken, Sonja, Joe and grandkids from Will and Will!
