Steine my heart breaks for you and your family. I always loved running in to John to get the update on “his girls”. He was sooo proud of them. My deepest sympathy along with hugs and prayers.

it will never be the same swinging into plant 3 and hearing you say “HEEEEEY CALEB”. You never knew a stranger and i feel horrible for your wife and girls. I always loved hearing about your family, and you always caring enough to ask about how things were going with mine (including my dad who worked right beside you)… Until we meet again Johnny…God Bless you.

So sorry for your family’s loss. We will keep you in our prayers during this difficult time. John always had a smile on his face and was so friendly. I ran into John few weeks ago – same sunny disposition. Hugs to everyone .

Our deepest sympathy is extended to your family. John was a classmate that will be remembered by all as a person of great integrity. “Honest John” is what I distinctly remember him being called. John was so humble growing up despite being the star athlete. This humble spirit followed him throughout his life. I have nothing but fond memories of John. I pray that your family receives peace and comfort from our Lord during this difficult time. You will remain in our prayers.

I am very sorry for your loss. I will not be able to attend the services because I live out of state, but I will keep your family in my prayers. John was a good father, and a friendly and kind person.
