John was a very good coworker of mine at Robbins Inc at White Lake. Had a lot of fun with him.
He taught me not to worry about things I could not control. He was great to work with because of his attitude.I will miss him for a while, but know I will see him again in Heaven.

Y Yvonne Miller on Jun 2, 2021

My dear brother, we had a lot of good times together. We love you so much. There is never enough time in this life to spend together. But we will be together again someday. I will miss our Sunday morning phone calls. Rest in peace.
Yvonne and Monty
