John and I were graduates of the class of '56 at Sherburne Central. I remember him then but most of all at our 35th reunion held at Hand's Inn in North Norwich. I had come out from the SF Bay to be there, but hadn't seen anyone for years. John was friendly and with a great smile that helped me feel at home. He was a good guy. He served his country and his community. He was a family guy. Condolences to all family members and friends but especially to Theresa and to Jann; I know that becoming a widow and losing a brother can both seem as if there are holes in the world. May memories of him be blessings. May he rest in peace.

We will truly miss John's presence. From the good times at Mt. Top Golf Course to American Legion gatherings. Milli will miss the Sunday morning donut and newspaper runs that John use to make to the Big M. No matter how he felt he was always kind and sociable. Our thoughts are with you Theresa and the entire family.

I remember the South Main Street Clam Bakes at the Guter residence in Sherburne, one of the childhood memories that defines my life. Such great times of my youth, as the Guters oversaw the well being of the Sherburne family!!. Sherburne loses another fixture of the good ole days in upstate NY. May John rest in peace, and my thoughts to the family.

God bless
