Jackie and Kelly and all of John's family,
I was so shocked and sad to hear about John. An individual with so many talents, such passion and energy----much too young to leave us but will certainly never be forgotten. He will be missed but I'm sure those ski slopes "above us" are humming now!

With love,
Mary Anderson (A DDS friend and coworker)

Jackie I am so sorry to hear about John's passing. I read it in the paper this morning. John was such a vibrant, cheerful soul! I will always fondly remember our rides together in his sports car in the mountains around Boulder. Always smiling and singing!! Our prayers are with you Jackie.

Jackie, Kelly, and all of John's family--It grieves me to hear of the loss of my dear friend John, way too soon. He was one of the funniest, smartest and most genuinely kind people I knew. I'll never forget the wonderful "Photoshop" creation he made for my parents' 50th anniversary. He made the DDS a brighter place to work while he was there, and he will be missed greatly.

Jackie and Kelly - I am so sorry about John's passing. It was a privilege to work with John at the DDS. And it was even better to play softball with him when the agency had a team. John was a special guy and I know he will be missed.

So Very, Very Sorry about John. Such a shock. Always pictured him being on the slopes of his beloved mountains. He was a smart, talented fellow with a fun sense of humor. He always did so much to help everyone whom he supervised, much more than most people ever knew. Condolences to you and Kelly. So sorry about John.
