In the time that I've known John I've known him to be a very caring person. I met John when he moved from Tennessee to Maryland. I still remember the day when Bob came home from work and told me he did a people search and found his brother John. Next thing we knew, Bob and I were looking for an apartment for him. From then on we had some pretty good times shooting pool,singing karaoke and just sitting out on the back deck on Hopewell.Years later we moved to Harford County. Then next thing you know John was renting my sister's house up the street from us. It was nice to have him so close, so Bob and John could be there for each other. I'm gonna miss my youngest grandson say ''Bob'' her comes your'' friend '' when he walked through our door. And seeing the warm pepsi he would leave on my picnic table. I will miss him dearly and he will always be in my heart. Love Ellen

To the family,

I am so sorry for the loss of your loved one Mr. John. I hope that you can find comfort and support from the words at Psalm 46:1 and 2 Corinthians 1:3,4. May you also cherish the memories you shared together as they too can be a source of comfort.
