    Dear Christopher,
    I am so shocked and sad to hear the news of John’s death. Matt phoned me late Thursday night June 17th.
    I’m sorry I cannot make it to your Father’s funeral. I am headed to Cleveland & Pittsburgh today. I have fond memories of playing in the Norwegian Street neighborhood with John , Jim Wallauer, etc.when we were young children. I am so glad that Jim reconnected with your Father. As a chef & artist, I loved talking with John about his work and viewing his portfolio whenever he visited Pottsville or the cabin. To me, he was always a kind and gentle man and youngster. Thankfully, he left a body of art work that reflects his thinking and inner feelings. His vision will live-on. He will be sorely missed in Pottsville, PA.

  • Chris -

    I had been trying to get in touch with your father for several weeks, and figured he must be on vacation, but finally, today, decided to search the Net, hoping not to find any unpleasant news, only to see news that he died a month ago.

    I considered John a dear friend, who I had known for decades, and I greatly miss him.

    I know he loved you very much, and that his premature loss will shock you for a long time.

    You were very lucky that John was your dad. Likewise, all of John’s friends were fortunate to know him.
