I met John a couple of years ago when I began working next door to him. We did business together many many times, and he was always a joy. John was always someone you looked forward to seeing walking through your door. He always had a smile on his face, and was always good for a kind word, or a much needed laugh. I truly enjoyed having the chance to get to know him a bit over the years, and will deeply miss our conversations. He was a good man, great at his job, and always made my day brighter when he stopped by the office. We all appreciated him here, and he will be greatly missed.

John-Paul & Katie,
I knew your Mother better than your Father, but they were both very fine people and hard workers.
I met your Mom when I was involved with the start of Habitat For Humanity in Missoula! What a wonderful worker she was! Your Dad, too!
My sincere Sympathy to you both - you will miss your Dad a lot - the 'missing' never really goes away - but it does get better to deal with.
Marj Burgan
