Comments

  1. My heart is broken for you and your family, Connie. John did so many amazing things in life and touched many hearts. He built Brandon’s very first adaptive cane that got him up and walking independently, at 5 years old I thought it was a miracle in itself. He custom built a table (that is still in Bub’s bedroom) so he could sit with his classmates and still use his braille writer when his little arms couldn’t reach on a standard desk and so many other projects that helped Brandon along the way. He also shared his amazing wife with us for all these years. He will always have a place in our hearts. We love you.

  2. Sorry to hear about John’s passing. I worked with him for 15 years and we fished a little too. My thoughts and prayers are with you all.
