Chris and family;
So surprised and saddened to hear of John's passing, he was just at the time in life where he should kick back and enjoy retirement; life isn't always fair, I guess. John, you lived a hell of a life, one that anyone would be proud to have on their resume. Rest easy Marine, your honorable tour is done.  Semper Fi !!       Wilfred Howe

I grew up on Mill St. and remember Jr. coming home on leave back in the late 70s and taking Mike,David, my brother Don and me to Westdale dam to swim. It was the first time I was ever there and thought that rope was the greatest thing I’d ever seen. Grew up with the Wards on Mill St and played a lot of football and baseball games in their yard. Condolences to the Ward siblings and their families. Rest easy Jr.

So sorry to hear of Mr. John's passing. My daughter, who attends RECC, spoke of him fondly and often. He will be missed!

My sincerest sympathy and prayers to Christine and the family. John was a great customer and FRIEND of mine for almost 20 years. I was John's Sysco sales rep at RECC. I looked forward to seeing and talking to John every Monday morning around 10am. We both loved to share stories and catch up on our favorite NFL teams: mine the Steelers and his of course, the Packers! John gave me a few vintage Steeler football cards he found at an auction, which i will cherish. I always enjoyed also our conversations about fishing and Yankee baseball. I was very proud to introduce my son Nick to him after U.S.M.C. boot camp! i will never forget the time I asked John if he "was" a Marine... and he corrected me and said "still" a "always" a Marine! He had two sayings for me every Monday morning... I would always ask how his weekend was, and his answer was one word... "over"! And as I was leaving, I would always say "see you next week", and he would answer: "thanks for the warning!" ... with a smile of course! I really enjoyed John's company and friendship for those many years and I already miss him! When John left RECC, we made plans to meet for breakfast after the holidays, and sadly we never got the chance. I pray for the family. I am a believer in God, and know he is merciful and answers prayers. My hope is that John's passing will bring your family closer and bring your family to a firm belief in God and the saving grace that Jesus Christ has to offer!
God desires that ALL of us spend eternity with HIM through faith in HIS son Jesus.
May you blessed and comforted,
Andy
