So sorry for your family's loss. My Dad, Gerald Ashley, knew John and Carolynne for many years. Growing up, I always heard stories about John - and my Dad and Mom, Irene Ashley, thought a lot of them. I think my Dad and John may have owned a boat together probably in the 50's or 60's. I agree with Debbie's condolence posting above, Howard was another person that was well thought of in our family. Prayers for you during this difficult time.

I remember John and my dad, Howard White, who worked together, were very good friends. Dad always spoke highly of John and even helped John build his home. For years whenever I saw John he would recognize me and speak to me. In later years he didn’t recognize me, but on the other hand I did look a lot different than the little girl or very young woman he hadn’t seen in years. I will always remember the man who talked to me, with kindness. Prayers for your family.
