John was great MAN in the eyes of God, he was full of the HOLY SPIRIT, I couldn't count the many times he and I met in Walmart, and stopped to PRAY for each other,in times of need. And it didn't bother us to gather in PRAYER in the middle of the isles for people we many not know, but we knew they were in need of HEALING PRAYER FULL OF THE PPWER OF. THE HOLY SPIRIT. HIS PRAYERS NOT ONLY LOFTED THST PERSON, BUT US AS WELL.
SO MY FRIEND JOHN, THSNK YOU FOR GOD BRINGING YOU INTO MY LIFE. REST ON PEACE AND GLORY IN THE PRESANCE OF GOD, AND KNOW I WILL BE PRAYING FOR COMFORT AND PEACE FOR YOU WONDERFUL WIFE AND FAMILY. GOD BLESS HARRY. IN JESUS NAMEI PRAY.

Mr John always brightened my day every time He came to the gym; he always rocked some matching workout clothes, a smile that showed off his mustache even more, and a positive attitude. The biggest grin would spread across his face when I’d see him and holler at him ‘Hey Trouble!’ He always made sure to give me a big hug, check how I was doing, my family, etc. Even praying for me and my family when we were going through tough things; he & Mrs Donna are like family to me and always will be. Mrs Donna was always on his lips and it was so beautiful to see how much he adored her as well as how good he was At loving people. I’m definitely gonna miss him but I know we’ll get to see each o...ther again one day. Until then, don’t be too ornery Mr John.Read more

Donna, you and John were one of the first couples to reach out and befriend us when we joined Triple Cross. We love you and pray God’s comfort and peace will strengthen and carry you through this difficult time.

John “Porkchop” was first, a patient of mine, who than became a friend. I loved so much about him, but what I loved most was his devotion to God and his beautiful wife Donna. His deep resonating laugh, big hugs, and kindness will never be forgotten. A life well lived my friend, well lived indeed 💞
