I knew John when I was taking a gap year between high school and college and volunteered in the Kennedy campaign in the spring of 1968. John took us all seriously and treated us kindly and made sure we could all have a chance to meet Bobby during the the Indiana primary. I have cherished those memories for 51 years. He was both sweet and smart and also memorable! May his memory be for a blessing...

My sweetest memory of all with John and Judy was the Christmas celebration we had at your house with my beloved Dad Bud. I remember almost sliding down your icy front steps that night in December, getting into our car and laughing all of the way home reminiscing about how sweet it was to have a family with so many sweet memories. We so loved you John. Especially because of how you loved our beloved Judy and your beautiful children. We will never forget you!

Dear Aunt Judy, Cousin Jessica and ALL who loved John,

My heart is broken yet I am filled with wonderful thoughts, and a lifetime of being blessed with an "Uncle John"!

He was passionate, understanding, direct. honorable and honest. I was so proud that my parents elected him to be my "Godfather" as he was ALWAYS there for me, always a confidant and always genuinely interested in my life.

I will miss SO many things about Uncle John but most of all I will miss just being able to pick up the phone and call a man who had the answer or could get me on the right path for over 50 years!

I mourn with you all while being grateful for the blessing that was UJ!

Prayers and happy memories,

Dan McGuire III

So sorry to hear of John's passing. He was a faithful supporter of the McGaw YMCA for many years and I enjoyed volunteering with him. Sympathies and prayers for all of you.
