Beautiful picture! This is how we always remember John, always smiling. Weโ€™ll never forget John teaching Doug to run that huge backhoe and immediately skidding down our neighbors hill. John was a good person and a good friend. We are so sorry for your loss.

Thank you for making memories with me throughout our young lives. Rock n Roll permeating the streets of Cleveland out of your beat up white Chevy with Thorin Oakenshield riding shotgun, our overworked and underpaid part-time jobs biding our time for the cold beer waiting for us, Our gasoline accidents on your garage floor, winter sled rides at ungodly speeds towards Borio's for 10 cent wings and frothy beverages, parties on Panther lake, helping me build the most beautiful cradle for my first born and our infamous scavenger hunt. While foolishly unscripted, was one of the best times I've ever had. Thank you for making our lives go 100 miles an hour. brothers forever. ~Soup

It's been 45years since Seneca Knolls. Those days he was known as John John, the family was large. I remember the chickens and the Mercedes Benz like it was yesterday. From the reading John lived a life worth living, well done young man. Though decades removed i share sadness in this loss, Paul as well i wasn't aware until now. Stay Knolls Strong!
