Josie and family- we are so sad to hear of John's passing. His quiet smile and sense of humour will be sorely missed. We always loved our chats with Johnny.

My sincere sympathy to John’s Josie and family. A fine man, hard working, fun loving and dedicated to living a good life. Inverhuron hasn’t felt the same since the move to Ripley.
