"Gayle and family,
Our thoughts and prayers go out to you at this time. John had an infectious smile that he shared with others, along with his great sense of humor. He showed a tremendous amount of support for the community of Eagle Grove and the school district. Cherish all of your memories and remember that he is looking down on you and smiling that smile of love that he shared with you, for he loved his family."

"John and I went to school together starting in Thor Elementary and proceeding thru high school. We went to confirmation for three years under Pastor Quam at Ullensvang Lutheran Church in Thor. I didn't have any family left in the area so I drifted away. The last time I saw John was at our 40th class reunion. I could tell that he had become the man the boy only hinted at. Treasure your memories and let others help in sharing the pain of your loss. Brenda Lee Entler"

"Gayle and Family... We will never forget those many nights a long time ago, playing volleyball at Vernon versus Thor Grain and theThor NIghtmares! You and John were so dependable and reliable and so supportive of what we were trying to do just as you have been of so many other activities over the years. Those were among the best years of our lives and we shall cherish them forever. You remain in our thoughts and prayers."
