Condolence From: Don and Jan Penrose
Condolence: We were fortunate to have known John in Sarasota through golf evening socializing. John was always a gentleman in every sense of the word and always smiling. He was admired by all who knew him and will be greatly missed.
We send our deepest sympathy to the family and to his partner Betty.

Condolence: My sincere condolences on the loss of your father and Grandfather...John was someone I would always consider my dear friend- always smiling, happy and so proud of his family . I always felt lucky to have had the opportunity to spend a fair amount of time socially with him in Florida as my parents were dear friends with John and Betty. He will be so very missed by his friends in Sarasota. Rest In Peace John xo
