Dear Sharon, Zack and Ella,
I heard of John's passing and am so sorry for your loss. He was a wonderful man and a kind and lovely soul.
May he rest in peace.

It was a pleasure to know John. His sense of humour and vivaciousness for life was very endearing. He was always very friendly and made new people feel very welcome. The times I spent with him he made me feel like I had known him forever. One of the best things I liked about John was how happy he made Sharon. He was a great dad to Zack & Ella. John was far too young for his family to be separated from him. Our love and prayers are with Sharon, Zack, Ella and the family.

Dear Sharon, Zack and Ella,
My condolences to you all. John was such a happy kind soul who always had a good story to tell. I loved working with John but the thing I respected and admired most about him was his love for his family. He was so proud of you and loved you so much.

I was deeply saddened to hear about the passing of John.

John was thoughtful and kind, and his devotion to his family was admirable. When I think of him, I can vividly see his smiling face. He was always happy to have a chat and just so proud of his kids.

Sharon, Zack and Ella. I am so sorry for your loss. He was a wonderful man and your love for each other was evident. Wishing you strength for today and hope for tomorrow. May God comfort you and your family.

Always in my thoughts.

John you have left a void in all our lives. You were one of the most genuine Friend & Human being I ever met, who always guided and helped people who you knew and didn't knew. You were the most organized and informative people I have met and you were the first person I reached out to for any guidance. I will be missing our morning coffee catch up, the lovely chat and your beautiful smile. I thank God for giving me the opportunity to meet you one last time and your beautiful family, before your untimely demise. "A great soul has departed but the memories shall never fade. Your loss is huge, and i can only share your pain. May the soul that has gone Rest in Peace. Keep Faith and Courage. I am sorry for our loss , you will be missed John 🙏🙏🙏🙏
