So many memories! Especially at Siloam UMC, where John has spent decades quietly in the background taking care of everything that needed to be done. Maintaining and repairing our church, landscaping, painting and cleaning, hauling trash, and assisting his beautiful bride at church dinners. We could always count on a few things whenever we were on John’s team at a church function: he would outwork all of us, and he’d do it with a twinkle in his eye and a softly spoken but absolutely hilarious comment. We loved witnessing the good-natured banter and gentle ribbing whenever John was in the church kitchen with Madeline...we all felt privileged to witness such a rare and precious love story. And now, for a little while, the pause button has been hit. John is in paradise, and we all know how he liked to arrive early. I imagine him sitting at a picnic table with St. Peter, chowing down on ribs, secure in the knowledge that he will be reunited with his beloved family.
