Condolence & Memory Journal

i am so sorry for your loss. John was a very gentle giant, whose deep voice belied a sweetness that shown through the twinkle in his eyes. He was a kind man and a loving father, and this world is a little smaller and sadder for his passing.

I now live in TN but still get the Batavia Daily News, which is where I saw John's obit. I am sad for your family. I have fond memories of Johnny from when Jack's family lived on Paine's Corner and Lisa and I were best friends. I enjoyed watching the tribute video and seeing the pics of Johnny just as I remembered him in those grade school pictures. He still had those beautiful Gill eyes. The pictures show how he must have loved being a grandpa. My thoughts are with you.

So sorry for your loss Johnny was a great guy and funny I have some great memories one most recent he came to my work and started a mower inside the store and couldn't understand why they came running over to tell him he can't do that well that's something John didn't like being told not to do something.John has so many similarities to my dad it's crazy.

Please accept my condolences. John always had something nice to say about everyone. He was a pleasure to be around and loved his family. I will always remember John for a good laugh and a lot of compassion for his family.
