Dear Holly, We are lifting up in prayer you and your family during this very difficult time. We know that the Lord is with you all especially now. We have so many fond memories of talking with John at our impromptu lunches after Sunday church services. Fred also enjoyed talking with John during our church's Men's Group lunches. John was a very good friend to all who knew him. Please take care in the days ahead. Love, Mary Anne & Fred

I am so upset to read the news of John’s passing. He was a cherished member of the Wilmington Choral Society for several years during my tenure. I thought him to be not only a dedicated and valuable singer, but a lovely and fascinating gentleman. I know his family will miss him dearly and I wish them peace and special memories.
