I'm sorry for the loss of John he was a wonderful man he will truly be missed â¤ï¸
John, until he was unable, had public service in his heart. Working with the Arkansas Division of Emergency Management and the Arkansas State Police gave him a lot of enjoyment. I visited with him often, and he always made sure that I knew he was on the way to Heaven. I know Iâ€™ll see him again. Until then, Iâ€™ll miss my friend John.
He was well liked and respected.Prayers for His Family and Friends.God BlessKenny and Dianna Thompson

Iâ€™ve had the privilege of knowing this fine example of a Christian man for over 30 years. Prayers for the family, he has fought the hard Earthly battle and won. Heâ€™s with his beloved Barbara now. Rest my friend.
Jennifer, Tim, Matt... I can't begin to express how sorry I am for your loss. He loved you and his grandchildren so much. John and I always thought it was kind of funny how I had gone to high school with the two of you, then years later I met John through ham radio and we became good friends. He was so passionate about ham radio, emergency communications, and serving his community. I will miss my friend for a long time. W5JLG, 73 de AA5JC.
